    I have a few suggestions that would solidify my urge to stay with the panel. I have recently moved over from a different hoster (not naming names) due to their support inadequacy. However, what I got there with the panel and not here is making me on the fence as I have to consider some trade-offs. Here are my suggestions:

    1) The console needs to show player commands. I want to be able to monitor what is going on on my server live from my phone and on my computer screen without having to use a logging plugin in game to look up their commands. It is long and unnecessary to block it. I understand if people may not want to be spammed with commands in their console but perhaps an option to toggle it or only show commands in the chat section. Either way, this is needed.

    2) Colour coded chat in the console. It would be great if the chat by players in console, uses the same colour codes as in game. I had a previous hoster that allowed you to turn on and off console colours with a button

    3) Give the tasks section the ability to write your OWN commands. I appreciate you give a lot, but you don't give server specific ones I want. For example, the citiznes plugin is errored so skins reset on NPCs sometimes. In my old panel, I had a command run every 5 minutes of /citizens reload which would fix this. Similarly, I had commands run every so often to unload unused chunks. That really helped with my TPS which is currenty always below 10.

    Hey JHarris12345!

    Fantastic suggestions!
    I would like to address your first suggestion.

    1) Regarding the suggestion to include player commands in console, unfortunately, console does not normally display player commands and there currently isn't an option to enable this. You are able to use plugins to track player commands.

    I often recommend either of these plugins:
    https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/coreprotect.8631/
    https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/commandwatcher.5011/

    CommandWatcher is a basic command watching plugin that would allow you to monitor player commands with /cw.
    CoreProtect logs and stores command data into logs, allowing you to look up exactly what commands a player used.

    2) For color coded chat, I know that plugins such as Essentials can work with this in our console. When a player types in chat once Essentials and groups are setup, their full colored prefix and name will appear in console when they talk.

    3) This is another great suggestion!
    I will ensure this is passed along to our team!

    If you have any further suggestions, please let us know! :)

    Best Regards,
    Kevin L.

    I would like to add onto this... the fact that your console is actually upside down so to speak, causes some errors when trying to actually read what some of the plugins are telling you during it's load up and such.

    Such as errors would end up being upside down.

    It's a great console none the less though, aside from a few kinks here and there. A simple toggle feature could be used to have the main bulk of the console go to "normal mode" or such and keep the start | stop buttons at the top where they are.

    Shouldn't be too hard of a fix though knowing how website coding works to a minor degree.

    Thank you in advance if I actually see this get put into effect ^,..,^

    As for the other suggestions.

    1. There are plugins that have commands show to console, they are mainly chat based plugins.

    2. Color coded... not really something I worried to much about, but sounds cool.

    3. CMI has it's own built in scheduler config that I use for such things; but a host having that does sound nice.
