Name changes?

If you didn’t change your name or don’t plan to this post doesn’t apply to you and there’s nothing you need to do. Just play on the server as before.

If you plan to change your name please wait a little until I announce it on the website here it’s okay for you to do so.

If you did change your name, due to a small bug the rank, island and other stuff and other stuff you had are currently not visible to you. They’re not lost! All the data, in game money, donation rank, items and island is there, just you can’t see them. I’m working on a fix.

As soon as I apply this fix all your stuff will become visible again to you. I’ll make an announcement on the website when the fix is applied to the server. It won’t be long, 1 – 2 days at most.

Apologies in advance for any inconvenience this may have caused you <3

    Thanks Heat… looks like you’ve been pretty busy lately.

    I made the mistake of changing my IGN already… old one was pcmerlin

    New one is “War_Wizard”

    Looking forward to the changes you’ve been posting.

          Oh yay! If that was what it took to get our dear Merlin back then so be it. Now I can go ahead and push the updates 🙂

    Believe me, I was too… however, the immaturity of some players (on another server) made it a necessity. I am still a Wizard, at least 🙂 but my in-game persona and my business life are much more separated now.

    Can we get an update on the ETA for name changes? No need to dedicate all your time to this, just asking for an updated estimate.

      Yup, I am almost done. Part of this process is not under my control though, due to the rate limit Mojang has on their API. It takes a while to convert 200K+ player names when the limit is about 3k / 10 min.

        Based off of heat’s previous statement. “200K+ player names when the limit is about 3k / 10 min.”, it looks to be about 10-11 hours once the conversion begins.

    Still waiting on changing my name, I don’t want to wait to long and have the feature be taken away. To agree with what everyone else said. Im wanting to change names on both of my account which are donor’s. Debating on doing it anyways. Not to sound impatient just don’t want the name i want to change to be taken.

    Welp, I guess this is what you get for not updating the server to 1.7.10. Survival, being 1.7.10 (and 1.7.10 plugins) kept everything. Skyblock (1.7.4 and 1.7.4 plugins) did not register to the UUID, and everything was lost.

      Well, not lost, they’re still on the original player file, which a player no longer use, because they are name instead of UUID based.

    Hey heatseeker0, if you had a island but it restarted and you make another island, what will happen? Which one will you keep? And what is the estimated time for you to be done? Sorry to ask but just curious. 🙂

          Yes! As soon as the changes are complete and put on the server, all players that changed names will immediately get access to all their old data back. This includes donor rank, island, items in inventory, enderchest, etc.

            Heat… I have really bad news for me… I just got on and found out I’m still in Sky rank… is it because I changed my user again?? (BurningBlaze) (Used to be benoffice)

          2. Santoryuu

            “Oh, the sky rank is when I talk it shows [SKY] and not donor. 🙁 ”
            That is just the server you’re on. If I’m on skyblock it’ll display [SKY] before my name. On survival it’ll display as [SURV], [DS] or [DeathSwap] for Death Swap and [SG] for survival games.

            Yea, but I want it to show Iron Donor cause I had it before. I was benoffice and now BurningBlaze and it shows the basic ranks.

    Yo heat since everyone’s getting impatient, shouldn’t you delegate some of the work to the mods? I would say the trusted, original ones like HappyQueen and H3NR7. It would make the process go so much faster, not to mention smoother. I will repesct your decision, so if you decide against it, then I’ll go with it. Do what you think is best.

    1 year, 3 months and 13 days later… Still no connection to skyblock, no word from the owner, no posts from the staff… All that is left is to assume the server died, and no one even cared enough to announce it. For this, my heart breaks…

    I haven’t been on minecraft for like 1-2 years and was wondering what happened to this server?
    is it true that the server died?

    Man, it’s been about a year and a half since this server shut down. It’s too bad, I had a lot of fun on this one, it was my first and favorite skyblock map.
