As you will most likely know, you are now able to change your Minecraft username to a new one, with a limit of one every 30 days. Octopia is fully prepared for this and you shouldn't notice any difference. We have however brought in a new rule which applies to usernames. Accounts with usernames which are of an obscene or rude nature, will be permanently banned. You will then have to change your name to something appropriate, once you have done this make a ban appeal and you will be unbanned. When considering changing your username, make sure to consider the following: Do I actually need to change my username? Will people know it is me when I change it? Could my new username offend someone, or does it break any rules? Please note, unless you have donated, you are not permitted a nickname on Octopia. Staff will not give you a nickname. EDIT: The only plugin that is effected by name changing is Towny. That has not yet been updated to work fully with UUIDs. All other plugins will track you via your UUID!
