I've copied and pasted the groups.yml example and the user.yml example from the wiki and replaced the usernames to reflect the members of my server. I was hoping the issue was my syntax and the direct copy would annul that problem. but i'm still having permission issues. The only member who is allowed access to commands is me, the OP. furthermore, if I deop myself ingame I don't even have the commands awarded a member of the Default group. Please give me a hand someone. Even if you could just point me into the right direction. I've been looking this stuff up for 3 days and still haven't found the solution to my problem. I've blocked out specific usernames for hopefully obvious reasons.
