Protection blocks advanced usage?

DB mentioned that had he been smarter with protection blocks, it would have been easier for him to add players to an area. Is there an easy way to create an "access-list" for a group of protection blocks, and manage them centrally, instead of manually configuring each protection block?

Thanks,

Not really, if ExeterDad wasn't overloaded already he could create custom, single use commands that could add a set list of people to all the protections owned by a specific person, but that is not likely to happen, and it wouldn't be adjustable. This will require some pre planning to be done properly. Look at what dman is doing with individual rooms he is "selling", he controls the protection but adds people as they​ purchase a room.

What I have done is set up an auto typer that will send a set list of string commands to the server, but that still takes time and if there is any network lag it might miss a letter.

Doesn't ExeterDad not have people helping with these kinds of things?

Haha, ok 1 person lol :P
What do you mean "smarter with protection blocks"? With some overlapping, you can let players use an area smaller than the range of the pro block :D
