The GUI Edit
The Community GUI can be quite complex at first however it is quite easy to understand once you know what does what.
To start off with the Community Settings GUI can be found under the Comparator once you've open the community you're a Leader/Co-Leader of.
The Feather (Top Left Centre) is your option to select your communities' favorite game. In this case, it is Skywars. The item will look different depending on what game you have chosen. Usually, it will be the same item as in the /stats. For example, if the set game is Bridges, the icon will be an Iron Pickaxe
The Door represents your communities' Privacy Setting. There are 3 different settings, Closed, Open to Join, and Accepting Join Requests. If your community is closed then all users will have to manually be invited to the community in order to join. Open to Join means anyone can just join it whenever they like and Accepting Join Requests means you'll have to manually accept people who want to join.
The Book and Quill toggles whether you can see the community chat or not - this can be used by anyone in the community.
The Paper changes the delay on how quickly people can send messages through the community chat. The values that can be applied are 1, 3 & 5 seconds.
The coloured wool represents the colour formatting of your communities' chat. The wool blocks change the color of parts of the community chat in this order: <community name> <username> <message>. You can change the colour of each of these variables within the chat.
Members Page Edit
The member's page allows you to change user roles & kick members from the community.
To change a user role you can either Left Click them to promote to Co-Leader or Shift-Left Click to promote them to Leader. Right Click will demote a Co-Leader back to Member and Shift-Right Click will kick the user from the community.
The Paper allows you to view pending join requests if your privacy setting is set to Accepting Join Requests.
Communities Page Edit
The Communities Page shows you what communities you're in, which ones are open to join and which ones you've been invited to.
The Emerald will show you your current communities that you are in
The Compass will show you which communities are open to join/accepting join requests.
The Paper will show you which communities you've currently been invited to.
The arrows allow you to browse through pages.
Mineplex Community Server (MCS) Edit
An MCS can be created by a Co-Leader or the Leader of a community via doing
/com mcs <community name>
Anyone within the community can then do
/server COM-<community name>-1 to join the MCS.
The set game of the MCS will automatically default to your communities favourite game. An MCS server functions exactly the same as an MPS server, however, there can only be a max player count of 20 and only members of your community can join it.
Co-Leaders of a community are automatically given Co-Host which cannot be removed unless their Co-Leader role is removed.
