Ever hated your Minecraft username? Just didn't know that registering and buying would make it your permanent name?
Yea I'm a bit late, but no one else has posted this.
I'd prefer having an account name, then a change-able name for in-game (Like Steam)
I kind of expected this after they started allowing users to change their Minecraft account into a "Mojang account", part of the process changes your login from your in-game name to your email address.
More money for notch
Since whenever I tried to buy my own minecraft account I would always get a error. My friend gave me his minecraft account since he never plays it. Since I hate his username so much I never play online. I really hope you will be able to change your username soon.
I got Keegs.
glad I registered the month classic started
I don't think I'd use it, I'm fine with just Erfly. I know a bunch of my friends would use it though.
Minecraft is actually how I got my current username.
If they're doing it like steam where you can change your name at any time, that might at least give those stupid Minecraft Clans a point.
I am hearing rumors about it's going to cost money to do.
Well atleast they wont charge you for a whole new game.
.. And I only need to change it once.
If this does go through, how will admin mods and such work since it currently uses your name, the only other way it can do it is via IP's but if you've got a dynamic IP that's not really great. That leads me to think it'll be pay to change your name but then again they may implement something like Steam ID's but for Minecraft like Mojang ID or something.
Instead of charging money for changing your login name, why not have a nickname system and some sort of identification system like Steam ID's.
I'm assuming they would still have the original name as some sort of identification, or some sort of identification (like a steamid).
Root name and IGN name with SDK/PHP root name lookup api.
I'm really looking forward to this, I've pretty much always resented my minecraft name and had even considered purchasing the game again just to get rid of it
When do you guys think they will add name change system.
Or do you even think they will add it at all?
I think the changeable name + account ID would work if it were a bit like Steam.
The first digit is the type of account you have. 1 for alpha, 2 for beta, and 3 for release. (For the whole content updates free for certain buyers deal)
The second digit would be the way of telling if the account was premium or free/creative. 1=premium 2=creative/free
The third digit would be a randomly generated number that is used to ban/unban that specific account from servers.
Third digit shouldn't be random. Plus thats p. stupid, it should just be an ID.
It should be which order number they were when they purchased it.
Good, now I need a way to change my email address as well since I registered on some temporary crap for no reason.
Should be like steams system, An account name, then changeable titles
I heard that you'll be able to change your name once every 3 months? Anyone else heard that?
I REALLY need to change my username- everyone keeps calling me Meth-rat instead of Me-the-rat.
Your name isn't Meth-rat? Woops.
What if your initial name is your account name, and you could change your nickname on the minecraft website.
We will look into your ideas. for now its just A thought. It will be free overall. thank you.
