Hello you beautiful Minecrafters!

So, you all know me, my derpy self was looking at Minecraft updates and then BAM!

I look closely at the screen, my eyes 2 centimeters away from the monitor, and I start to read:

"Minecraft will soon be updating profile changes, you will be able to add another profile to your account, along with the ability to change your username."


I was jumping with joy in my desk chair, I know most of us created our Minecraft accounts when we were like, 7 years old, so we had names like "rockstar45" and "gamerprincess1978" some of us actually like those names, but most people doubt their usernames after they click the "Accept Username" button. I was one of those people.

Also, the fact that we will be able to make another character on 1 profile that we already paid for, that is astonishing in my eyes, it will also be helpful for the famous Minecrafters if they want to just blend in with the crowd and not get swamped by fans. In my opinion, I find that very useful, also if you get banned on a server, you can just get on your other account and play! Yay for cheating the system! xD

Overall, I am in love with this idea, I hope everyone else likes it too.

-Side note: This is all Mojangs idea, I am not trying to steal their creativity whatsoever. Or offend anyone with their current usernames.

Thank you for reading my blog, I hope you enjoyed it!

There will also be a new feature that is called /ban port or something like that. basically when someone does that to you it doesnt ban the profile it bans your whole account. so you cant just get another profile. you would have to buy a whole new account.

The only reason i want to change my name is because my ign is gold_tool and people on servers all the time say budder_tool or "Why are you such a tool".

Don't get your hopes up tho, if your name was, lets say "player123" there probably isn't a chance you'll be able to play with "player" because it's taken.

I'm guessing that the name change thing is going to work like this:
Since server plugins rely heavily off our names, our username will be an IGN name, (Like gamerdude131) but our serverside name will be our original. So we can have "Nicknames" instead of our username. But plugins like essentials will still be able to change our nickname.
