    Evening everyone

    I just thought I would write this quick post to tell you about the new Name Changing feature within Minecraft!

    Today, February 4th Mojang allowed Minecraft users to change their usernames. There are a few underlying worries about this that I would like to address:
    1. All banned users will remain banned - Minecraft works using a UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) system to organize it's players therefore when a player is banned they are banned using their UUID and not the username itself. If you don't understand that look at it this way the UUID is the account and the username is the username, the username can always be changed but the account cannot. Therefore don't worry about banning, its all under control!
    2. Donation ranks will remain - As said in the previous post our ranks work on a UUID system as well therefore your donations are linked to your UUID not the username itself so you will always have you rank!
    Added by AZZA:
    Also, please not that some things might be broken due to name changing. Here's a list of things that might need your attention after you have changed your name:

    Survival
    • ChestShop signs and market shops
      • Fix the signs by recreating them. If you cannot edit your shop, please contact an administrator.
    • Chat Groups
      • If you weren't the party owner, please contact the party creator to re-add you to the chat group.
      • If you were the party owner, please create a new one.
    Creative
    • Chat Groups
      • If you weren't the party owner, please contact the party creator to re-add you to the chat group.
      • If you were the party owner, please create a new one.

    In case you didn't know what all of this is about have a read below:

    "Starting February 4th, you will be able to change a Minecraft username (this includes editing capitalization). If you sign in with your email, this feature will be available to you. If you sign in with your username, you'll need to migrate to a Mojang account. Usernames can be changed at account.mojang.com/me; just click the "change" link next to your name."

    Thank you and have a nice day,
