So recently I have noticed more and more of you are changing your names and I just wanted to warn players about things that may happen when you do this.
Most Plugins were made before mojang introduced the name change and therefore do not register it when you do change your name. They see you as a different person and as a result things can often get reset or you can be denied access of something, even though it is yours.
Two examples of this, and the most common are votes and playershops. When you change your name, the voting plugin does not care and resets your votes. The playershop plugin is incapable of identifying you and will not allow you to make signs in your new shop and will instead change the name back to your old one. This is completly out of our control and until the developers upgrade their plugin to cater for the name change (which they may never do) or a similarily functiong plugin is developed, then we cannot do much.
So please, think about this before you go ahead and change your name, as you will be doing so at your own risk.
If you have already changed your name and are renting a shop, one suggestion, although inconvient would be to rent your shop to a friend, and get them to add you as a friend. This is sadly the only way around it at this stage.
Thanks all, and I hope you all had a great Easter weekend. Also the finalists of the PVP aren comp have been anounced, don't forget to vote for your favourite one!
