    People have come to us with plugins from the Sourcemod forum and then expect us to immediately try it as though it is as easy as saving a file. Every time we install a plugin, it could have any of these problems.
    • Crash
    • Lag
    • Security Leak (like enabling sv_cheats)
    These problems don't occur instantly and could even take several months.
    • Many plugins are poorly written by kids with very little experience.
    • Plugins may start crashing many patches later and we have to figure out which of the 50+ plugins is causing it. When the server crashes, it doesn't tell you which plugin caused it.
    • Plugins may crash when combined with other plugins we have installed.
    Examples of plugins that we had to remove.
    • Model manager
    • High Five
    • TF2ware
