Nick Namer - Change your in-game name!
Current Latest Version: v1.2.1
I'm Not Dead!
A lot of time and effort goes into these plugins I make. I'm currently a Freshman in High School so it's hard to find the time to maintain and develop my plugins. Donations would be a great way to help me and for you guys to show your appreciation. Donate
Tired of the same in-game name? Well Give yourself a brand spanking new Name! That's right son, a NEW NAME! Nick Namer currently has permissions support (SuperPerms by default...), TagAPI Support, and will default to OP if no permissions file is found.

In Depth Features (Will most likely answer any questions you have)
What this plugin does is allow players to change their display name, not their actual minecraft username. If you don't have TagApi it will only change your chat name and player tab list name. Now what this means is that the name over your head will not be changed with regular installation. IF you use a chat plugin such as Herochat or whatever chat plugins are out nowadays, make sure you change the chat configuration to show the display name instead of the player's actual minecraft username. If you want all Nick Namer has to offer and have installed TagAPI, then with the use of this API, the name above the player's head will be changed, along with their skin of the player's name. (E.g if I nicknamed myself 'Notch', the name above my head would change to 'Notch' and my skin would be changed to his too) I cannot change the fact that your skin changes with the nicknames, as mbaxter said in the description of his API, this is a minecraft client issue and cannot be changed. When you nickname yourself it will check if your name is blacklisted or not based on the config node 'Use Blacklist' and whether or not you have the permission to bypass the blacklist. If you try to nickname yourself a blacklisted word, the NickChangeEvent is cancelled.

- Duplicate Names/Impersonation check for NickNames
- Add a parser to all commands you type.
Hmm..... Ok xD
Uh either I make something with that or you can mess around with your permissions plugin. I'll contemplate that idea.
Dude I give up, you can't even do what everyone asks you, I'll use an other plugin.
How would you allow players to only change the color of their names and not their names?
plz add ticket-system... thx
i love this plugin as it better then nick
lol I'm trying to get rid of essentials.
Tab list isn't working for me. Could you also maybe include a /who or /online or /list (or all 3) and the ability to sort them like
What does "Getting tired of Essentials work-arounds." in the changelog means?
Did you make your plugin compatible with essentials or not??
How would one remove a nickname? Is there a /nick <player> off or something? Thanks! I love the plugin. :)
I'm on it!
Have you updated to the latest one? Do you have your chat plugin set up to take the Displayname and not the actual name? Do you have TagAPI for for names above the players heads?
Can you add PEX prefix support please?
Hi! Thanks for making this plugin but I've a problem... I've a BukkitGames server, and at every restart (when the map changes) the nicks disappears. I can see them in the Nick Names.yml file but not in the game. What can I do?
Yes the /nick works for your plugin and not essentials. Try fixing it again lol.
You won't let me change nick names from the command line? I tried doing: nick playername nickname and it didn't work... I need that functionality for my donation shop... Oh well, time to hack up some code.
Yep, did that in my last build :D
No, I just remembered that I could instead of making the whole command /nnick I could just give it an alias such as /nnick
Although if you're still having problems using the /nnick alias please notify me ASAP. If this is true for all with essentials i'll just release an essentials specific build with the /nnick command.
You need to configure your chat plugin to use nicknames instead of the player's raw name. Beyond that then notify me and i'll take a look.
This is a great nickname plugin. It worked great before I downloaded essentials. It no longer shows my nick in chat but does on the tab list. Is it essentials chat that is causing this?Should I delete essentials chat from essentials? I need help.
I just updated to R: Nick Namer v1.2 [CB 1.5.2-R0.1] for CB 1.5.2-R0.1 May 09, 2013 and the /nick command uses your plugin like in the old version. Is it a bug?
