    So /tppos exists, but can you also just add /pos, to turn your own x,y coords, or a players co-ords if you specify a player?

    What would /pos do exactly? Teleport another player to your position, another player to another position? Would it just give you the position of a player?

    no, just return the xy coords

    EG

    /pos
    > Your X Y position is 4123 1234

    /pos Panther
    Panther's X Y position is 1234 234

    (then this one that already exists)
    /tppos 1234 234

    pretty simple really.

    Just helpful for reports, like...

    someone greifed such-and-suches house, its located at 1234 1234

    then a mod or whatever can tp to that pos

    It certainly could be added, although I believe it already exists in Essentials+

    well tahts why i asked, because it was in essentials, but not in essentials+

    then tshock has /tppos, but no /pos

    this would also go hang in hand with my other request of adding /sm from console with x,y coords

    We discussed the /sm from console idea, and I believe someone is making a plugin to do that. It resulted in the discussion that TShock needs to have a way to separate the console input commands from the chat commands (its possible to do). So we will implement that new feature and ask the plugin developer if they wish to PR their code into Tshock or if we should leave it as a plugin.

    As for /pos, I will ask @Wight if he thinks it should be in E+ or if we should just hack it into TShock. If we didn't have tppos id have rejected it, but since we do it doesnt sound so far fetched to have the ability to get a position.

    If /pos goes into E+ then /tppos should also. Otherwise hacking it into TShock would be more sensible
