60 - nickname too long

I have a nickname to 15 characters and when I use tagapi my nickname above head changes color, but I lose the skin because my nickname becomes from the_real_legend to the_real_legen

It's possible to fix?
Sorry for my bad bad english :P

    TagAPI cuts the name passed to the event down to 16 characters, mattataki, nor does a long name crash the server. As for this ticket's issue, that cannot be 'fixed' because of the 16 character limit.

    Same issue here, I know color codes counts as characters in the max int string of 16. So if i add a prefix let's say &xplayername, if the playername is above 14 chars, it will crash the server. How do I cut the playername to keep my color codes? TagAPI is not doing so. It is not cutting the name length.

    char[] prename = YourClass.getYourTag(player).toCharArray();
    String name = "";	
    for(int i=0;i<Math.min(16, prename.length); i++){
        name = name + prename[i];
