Minecraft Username Change, yay!

Update 7 Feb: Most protections have now been converted from usernames to UUIDs, however if you have changed your username between 4 and 7th February, you may not be able to access some protections, if this is the case please post below with your old and new names, or catch myself or tj in-game/IRC.

It's here!

For those of you that picked your Minecraft username when you were 13 and regretted it for the past 4 years, well now as of today you can change it, you can do this by logging into your account at https://account.mojang.com/ and selecting the "Change" link next to your Minecraft Username, note that you can only change it once every 30 days, and your old name will be held for 37 days after you change it in-case your change your mind.

In terms of New Eden, username changes shouldn't break anything (I say shouldn't but you never know), obviously this won't effect IRC or Vent, and we will be working on a solution over the coming months for the forums to keep usernames updated. If you would like your forum username updated to match your new Minecraft username, just message myself or an admin.

Update 5 Feb: If you change your username, you won't be able to access your protected storage (chests, furnaces, etc), this is a known bug with LWC and is being fixed, in the meantime if you change your username post below with your old and new names, and we will do a mass update on all of your protections.

Update 6 Feb: As of writing this, all protections (chess, furnaces, etc) created or modified will use UUIDs instead of usernames, meaning if you are planning on changing your username use the command "/cmodify " replacing with your current username, then "/cpersist", then click on all of your protections to update them, once done you can change your username and you will still be able to access all of your protected containers and doors.
