NickNames is a simple plugin, that adds support for nicknames into the game. These nicknames persist over server restarts.


  • /nick - Basic nick command.
  • /nick <nickname> - Changes your nick to <nickname>.
  • /nick <playername> <nickname> - Changes <playername>'s nick to <nickname>.
  • /nick off - Removes your nick.
  • /nick off <playername> - Removes nickname for <playername>.
  • /nicknames - Displays plugin information.
  • /nicknames lookup <nickname> - Looks up a username from a nickname.


  • nicknames.nick - Can change any nicks.
  • nicknames.nick.self - Can change own nick.
  • nicknames.nick.other - Can change other's nicks.
  • nicknames.lookup - Can lookup people based on their nicknames


There is only one option, which changes whether multiple people can have the same nickname. I would recommend you leave it as false, as if it is true you cannot perform lookups for a nickname as there could be multiple possible outcomes.

allow-duplicate-nicknames: false


  • v2.1 - Add nick lookup and nick off <playername> capabilities
  • v2.0 - Complete rewrite
  • v1.1 - Changed to JRE6, fixes.
  • v1.0 - Release

    Latest version supports tab list name changing (not approved yet). And which command gives that error? If you mean the lookup command, are you sure you typed /nicknames lookup and not /nick lookup?

    There is no functionality in the plugin which requires the user to wait before changing nicks. This could be another plugin on your server, perhaps?

    Hello. Great plugin, btw. Just one question, I am testing things on my server, where I am op, but it says I have to wait before changing my nick again. Is there any way to bypass that as a admin?

    Bravo IDIOT did you even LOAD your latest version before releasing it you Have put invalid YML inside the plugin.yml.....

    here is the error...

    now excuse me while i go fix the YML. and re to my server.

    you missed a : on the second last line of the file.

    Also why do nick names not show on the tab list? kinda defeats the point.
