So, I was thinking of changing my mc name to something different and I did, but my server didn't recognise that I changed my name, and said that I was a new player, and all of my skyblock things weren't working. Is there a plugin to fix it? Or is there any other way? FIXED, DO NOT WORRY.

If the server is in offline mode this can happen as UUID's are randomly assigned and not linked to the player unlike online mode. If its online mode, maybe the plugin that handles the joining/players is not setup to work with UUID's and rather with usernames instead.

Trying 1.12.2 might be safest for now. There are still a lot of problems with 1.13 in combination with mods, and 1.12.2 has been around for quite some time now.

Just make sure that you grab the right (updated) versions for both your server and the mods its using.

that shouldn't have happened, servers tie a UUID to a player, not a playername and have done for like the past 3 ish years

reboot client, reboot server, give it some time for your name to update and try again

With modern versions this shouldn't happen but if you play with an older Minecraft version then this is definitely an issue and unfortunately there isn't much you can do there other than contacting the server staff or better: sticking to modern Minecraft versions.
