    Hello all!

    This post is intended to be focused towards Keinett's Premium users. If you are currently a non-premium minecraft user, you may disregard this post.

    As you may know, it is now possible to change your minecraft username as of today.

    However, with keinett still being on 1.7, as well as being a non-premium server, we are not able to effectively take advantage of Mojang's new UUID system, which handles name changing on premium servers. Basically, every premium minecraft account has a unique identifier, known as a UUID. When you log into our server your data is stored under that UUID. However, with offline mode servers like keinett, the UUID is generated based on your username, and will not stay the same even if you change your username.

    If you change your username, you WILL lose all your data on our server as our server will treat you as a different player. We will not be taking player data transfer requests at this time for normal players, and if you are an existing donator with premium and would like to change your name and have your data transferred, please let us know a week in advance before changing your username.

    Again, for further clarification, for premium players this means if you change your username, your UUID will change meaning you will lose your items, plots, stats, everything on our server. Offline mode players, you do not have to worry about this but premium players please keep all this in mind.

    On a side note, we are working hard to sort out bugs pertaining to minecraft 1.8 in our hopes of updating sometime by the end of this month into the beginning of March, however, no gaurantees. We are still testing and ensuring all our systems remain stable with the 1.8 update. We will let you guys know when we have a final date of when we will be updating but until now it is still a month or two away.

    Please PM me and I can see what I can do to help you out.

    As of this time, we will not be able to support name changes as again, the UUID's are calculated by using the username instead of grabbing them UUID from the official minecraft servers. Until a workaround is found, changing your name in any way while keeping all your data will not be possible without manual intervention at this time.

    This is very difficult for manual transfer of accounts, considering there are 1337 players. Can't believe you're gonna do this every month

    No. Honestly if everyone changes their name, how will we tell who is who?

    Good point, because it will cause a lot of fuss, trying to find your friends again.

    Yeah, if name changes are ever added (on Keinett), i would suggest requiring people to post it on special topic so there's less name confusion.

    Dang, I'll have to wait on my dream of becoming Knight33 then. Thank you for letting everyone know. Though I would recommend either posting a link to this or put a statement on the Keinett shop site for people who don't normally or never go on the the forums.
