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.
But… but… I was really fond of your old name, pcmerlin. Oh well, things change.
You can change back to your old IGN and everything works!!
pcmerlin is back 😀
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 🙂
Is the server dead??
Nope. Just updating. Slow, very slow.
Is the server still up?
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.
yes heat, please alert players as soon as fixing is done please, been wanting to change name before it is taken and as always thanks heat
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.
I changed my name to JuliusMS, but it said i joined today, and not the 27th decembdrer 2012, Is that going to be fixed to?
Yup, they’re related.
Sad people are changing there names… I wont know who anyone is anymore!
Well Heidi i changed my name 😀 My new name is
instead of MinecraftlordMax as i made that name when i was 9
I was about to change my name but everyone said you would lose your stuff. Looking forward to finally changing my name! 😀
Its been 3Days!! 😀 jk jk hope your almost done 🙂 Thanks for doing this by the way heat helps me 😀
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.
So how long do you think untill we will get it?
As soon as it’s done, and not a single moment longer.
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.
Did Microsoft say anything that name changes are going to be taken away?
sooo excited!! cant wait till I can change my name xD Heart_attack_gal annoys me XD 😀 hopefully it comes soon :3
My old name was benoffice and I changed it to DragonOfTheDead
I was donor
I already changed my name 🙁
and I’m assuming /ignorelist will still leave ignored players ignored even after name change?
Correct. But only after I’m done with the changes.
Hope its almost done Havnt got long to wait now 😀
5-6hours apparently if going off Santory’s Intel
Will the banned players still be banned?
Of course they will still be banned.
Can I be unbanned? I saw people flying so I thought I could fly.
Please submit an unban appeal in the proper section of the forum.
I’m so excited for the fix. I check like every hour just to see if I can finally do it 😛 I hope it comes soon! no rush though, thanks heat!!
Same here Sophia, well if were going off there intel its aload of Crap as hes still working on it but im so eager to play so when its done im gunna like Cry with joy 😀
THANKS HEAT – BEST OWNER EVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRR :DDDD
No joke, I’m like stuck on this website, just waiting xD
almost done? sorry for asking, but I’ve been wondering xD. No rush though! thanks.
Yeh, the 1-2 Days was a Bit… More like 8 Days 😛
99% sure this can be fixed by removing the PermissionsEX.jar and replace it with a newer version.
Love your optimism but that’s far from being the case.
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. 🙂
-benoffice (Iron Donor)
still waiting! I hope its almost done! 😀 thanks for working on it heat!
Heat you Done yet… i think the 1-2days Maximum was like the Biggest Troll there is 😛
iMaaxx (Obsidian Donator)
any word on ETA?
Hoping it’s almost done xD I agree with max, 1-2 days? more like 12 😛 hope it’s almost done!! glad you’re working on it though!
Hey heat, it is supposed to be 1-2 days? More like 12 days! No rush, hope you are almost done.
-benoffice/DragonOfTheDead (Iron Donor)
thinking about just checking at the end of the month. xD
Hey heat can we get an ETA on the name changes? No rush, just wondering >.<
still waiting xD hoping it’s almost done. Thanks heat!
Uhh…. Heat? you almost done? 1-2 days is too long….
So… It’s been over a month. When can we change?
Heat, it is taking about 1 ,month now but still cant get it??
Not much longer now. Sorry, I’ve been quite busy RL.
Woot not much longer! Anything the players can do in the server just let us know~!
Yes there would be something players can do on the server: have fun!
Does that mean the I can go on and have my Iron Donor rank back?
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)
What is the Sky rank?
Oh, the sky rank is when I talk it shows [SKY] and not donor. 🙁
“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.
Any ideas on how long???
Well, 2 Month marker comes closer. Hope it’s finished by April!
Uhhh… Is it fixed
Heat any idea how long it will take
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.
Is it safe to go on the server if I changed my name yet?
Heat, can you give any sort of ballpark estimate for when this server will hit 1.8?
Dude 3 months 7days…
How long till ur done
It’s Now June. We’re all Waiting 🙂
Day 2711423478… Skyblock still has no connection… no one has been on the website in a while.. what happened here…. its up to me to find out.. (Not really tho because I cant even connect to the server ) :(((((
December 28, it’s been 10 months and 23 days since the glitch had begun, and no one has ever been on spacecraft every again.
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…
Is the server up yet? its been a year…
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.
