Currently: It seems (and by towny default) pressure plates do not work unless /switch permissions are granted to players or plots. Suggestion: Change items Wooden Pressure Plate & Golden Pressure Plate to be able to switch without granting permissions. Why: Just like the wooden button is a default "allow" all to switch, these should be too. It would be useful when making fun games and items for towns. There is basically no drawback. How: Easy in less than 5 minutes it can be implemented, and would take effect on next server reboot. In the Towny-Config.yml in the Block/Item/Mob Protection section Switch-Ids line, remove: WOOD_PLATE and GOLD_PLATE. Save and reboot. Done! If you need more information please ask. Thanks, Hornemans *edit: why gold too? Because wooden one is ugly as hell, gold looks nice!
