    Hi CubeCrafters,

    A lot of you have been confused lately on how well we support name changing on our server, and whether you should do it or not.

    The good news is, tomorrow (Feb 4th) you can change your name, because we are compatible with name changing, ranks, points and more will stay the same if you change your name. (And banned/muted people will stay banned/muted.)

    There are just a few servers that have not achieved compatibility with name-changing due to plugin/management related issues. The servers not compatible with name changing are the following:

    - Creative
    - Factions
    - SkyBlock

    Unfortunately due to their size and the way they work, they're not compatible with name changing yet. So if you change your name, expect to lose your plot/faction/skyblock island.

    We're working to make sure they will be compatible as soon as possible, but due to their size and in how they run, we can't give you an estimate of how much longer it will take us.

    EDIT: Name changing takes a little bit to go through, so if you just changed your name and you're missing ranks/points or anything else, try logging in again after a few hours have passed.

    That's all on that subject, have fun! :)

    They would have to wait 27 days to get that name, and if you wanted to change your name back you can within a certain limit. If you want to know more just go to the mojang main page and BAM there is everything you need to know about name changing.

    It's fine, give them time. There will eventually be a way to change your name + keep all plots, etc.

    Hopefully in the near future that will happen. I dont know if I will risk changing my name just yet. I like mine.

    So my question is:

    If you add your new player name to ALL of your creative plots, when you change your name, will the plots of your previous name still be there and will you be added still?
