This is helpful for those that want a name change, but can't you just backup your servers/saves or put them somewhere else? That way it wouldn't really be much of a problem.

Then again, I might be wrong.

Well yes there is one way but it depends how bad you want to change it.

You can go to minecraft.net the offical minecraft website.

After that you can login to your profile and RESET your account.

YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SERVERS AND .MINECARFT FILE

after that you can change your username to whatever you want. but you will lose everything you ever did in minecraft so it depends how bad you want it hope this helps ^_^
Do you have to pay for it?!?! xD im curious

I'm pretty sure it's 100% impossible to change your user name of Minecraft as of now.

You mean delete your account...
I'm pretty sure it's impossible to change your name as of 1.7.2. I've been hearing about username changing, and I see that they have already added the ID thing in, because when people join my server I see an "ID" (only vanilla?).

Nice troll..

1. no reset account
2. resetting your account would not clear data off your LOCAL drive on your PC/Mac
3. currently there is no name change, but the code for it is starting and I believe it will be a paid service... BUT when they put it in sure hope it doesn't mess with ban files on servers

Don't listen to that. If you reset your account you'll have to buy a new one.

You must not understand how this works. There is no way to change your Minecraft username. There won't be a way to change your minecraft user name for a while because then that would entirely mess up servers with system bans and they would have to rethink that all over again. If you want a different name pay for another account simple.

If I remember right, when I bought my minecraft a while ago it was all like "choose a good username because you won't be able to change it" and all that. I could be wrong. I mean if you were desperate enough you could buy another minecraft. But, I don't think anyone would go that far.

Umm I looked it up Mojang said this ill copy it and paste it okay

We do not yet support changing or editing usernames, though this is planned for the future. We do not have a set release date for this feature. Make sure that you choose wisely, as your username will be used for your multiplayer persona and is visible to others.

As of Minecraft version 1.7, servers will be equipped to use players' unique UUIDs. This means that when a player is banned from a server, they will remain banned even if their username changes. Additional changes will be made to servers and accounts before username changes are available.

Due to the extra features in Mojang accounts, if you would like to change your username in the future, your Minecraft username will need to be on a Mojang account. If you currently log into the game with your username, you can migrate to a Mojang account at account.mojang.com/migrate.



that's what they said not sure if right read it up on mojang hope its free when comes out
