New /name command added

Posted by on Feb 5, 2015 in Minecraft

Today I’ve wrote a new feature called /name or /names and it’s a command that lets you lookup the past usernames of a player. So to use it you just type /names <player name> and it will show you their name history like so:

This feature actually uses the official Mojang querying API for name history so whilst the screenshot above only shows me changing my name once if I were to change my name again it will list that name in addition to the currently displayed usernames. The dates supplied by the name changer are also from Mojang so they are accurate to the moment you change your username and not just when you visited our server with it.

I hope this feature will be useful to you all as I know many (many!) of our players have changed their names since the new feature was enabled yesterday.
