It has come to my attention that recently we've been having an increased number of newer players coming onto the server with the intention to attempt to crash it using WorldEdit commands (primarily //set). This usually involves filling the plot with entities that cause lag, such as redstone, ladders, or minecart rails. Up unitl this point, I've tried to keep WorldEdit as limitless as it can, as it's a small minority of players causing issues for the larger group of everyone, however this has increased to a level where I couldn't leave it untouched.
Effective immediately, a few of the common items being used to crash the server with WorldEdit (such as those mentioned above) have been blocked from use with //set with WorldEdit. You will still be able to copy and paste these, however //set will no longer work for a select few of additional items, such as those specified in the example list in the previous paragraph.
This should hopefully reduce the number of cases of crashes, and this list may be modified again if felt necessary. However, if the issues continue, we will have to consider further limitations on WorldEdit, such as requiring a certain playtime before gaining access to it, or registering on the site (or potentially something else) in an attempt to minimise the influx of players joining to crash the server, with no intention of returning after that.
