I've heard rumors that in 8.1+ you can set different op levels for different users. I have a new server, and I want to give staff members op level 3 so that they can kick and ban people if needed. Anything other than that is too much power, though. In the ops.json file I noticed that there's a level set for each op, but setting one to 3 doesn't seem to work, it's overwritten by the server.properties op level. ie. It stays listed as level: 3 for that user in ops.json but they're still able to use the /give and /tp command in game when server.properties is set to 4.
Does anyone know of a way to set custom op levels, or a good way to allow /kick and /ban for staff members using command blocks somehow?
This is a Vanilla server, v1.8.7. (Took a few months to get it built and configured / and is marketed as vanilla, so I don't want to switch to bukkit, etc version).
