While building a too-tall tower, I wanted to turn damage off in an area I sub-zoned as a fallzone. (I was then going to leave that zone damage-free so people could jump off the tower for fun if they wanted.)

When trying to set the flag, I kept getting a message of "Owner does not have permission for this" (or similar).

Meatbawlls was on at the time, and said it seemed to be set so only SM could set that flag....but he wasn't sure if this was a purposeful setting, or just an "oops."

The Damage Flag can only be used by people with /res admin, therefore, can only be used by  SMs and Frelling/Meat.

We decided that allowing general access to the damage flag wasn't in line with the play style we wanted to encourage on VeteranCraft. Only those with Residence admin (SM+) have access to this flag, and may only use it on Government projects.

Thanks for clarifying Tony. She asked me in game but I wasn't sure if it was intentional. looks like a jump to a water pool is the solution.

To quote from our Wiki Plugins page

However, Veterancraft believes that SMP Minecraft should be about Minecraft, not plugins. That doesn’t mean that we don’t use them. We use them to empower server admins with tools such as logging, anti-griefing, and player management. We also use them to give players additional capabilities such as grief protection, MMO-style abilities, commerce and more, as long as they don’t detract from a Notch-style gameplay.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experiences of others, are also remarkable for their disinclination to do so. - D. Adams
