Hack Sign Fix!

Hey if you are here you are most likley a owner or someone who manages a server. You probrably are getting kicked getting this array error saying max string size: 9 or something similar to that! Well I had the same problem and I found a fix and I am so happy! I am so happy I am sharing how to fix this!

The Cause? There is a new sign hack out there that allows players to exceed the max string buffer limit on a minecraft sign kicking the players in range, but no worries there is an easy fix. Look below at the following methods!

Best Method:
You will need world edit sync and world edit. Prepare the command "//removenear sign 500" Once you have typed if you can do "CTRL + SHIFT + LEFT ARROW". Repeat that command a few times and copy the text. As soon as you find the area (the kick zone) instantly do CTRL + V (paste) and ENTER to execute that command than instantly tp away after. ex: /spawn to get away and you will not get kicked. Wait for the sync to slowly slither around and find that ugly sign. It will well at least for me it said "removed '1' sign(s)". And it worked!!!! Remember you prevent further sign places of this sort you need to upgrade to 1.8.7.

Cheap Method:
Revert to a older map and upgrade to 1.8.7.

The Be a Hacker yourself Method ~ Thanks to PBC88
Install the Wolfram hackclient, go into a singleplayer world, enable "sign crash", join your server, and the sign won't crash you, if you don't know where the sign is, use x-ray.

MC EDIT ~ Thanks to Pepijn
Look up minecraft edit on google.
Download the software.
Import your world.
Search for the sign and remove it.

Suggested by Pepijn

Buggy Method:
Under your "world" file. There are region files. Use a online tool to find what the region files mean and find the right coordinates with the right region file and delete those files. (not recommended)

Another Method (dosent require asyncworldedit)
Set your server view distance to 0 or 1. Than you can get real close and do //removenear sign 100
I do not suspect a radius of 100 with crash your server!

Couldn't this also be solved by downloading the server map and loading it in MCedit to remove the sign?
