    So I've just learned that Minecraft will gain the ability to rename players.

    This effectively breaks practically almost all plugins known to man. That, sadly, includes this one.

    So we can rename ourselves? Yep! But this has the downside of showing that most of your old plugins probably won't work so well anymore, especially for tracking players. Players can now only be uniquely identified by a UUID.

    So what is MineQuest going to do about it? The database format will be getting updated shortly. Before 1.7.6, hopefully, a new milestone of MineQuest 3 will come out. That milestone, for 1.7.4 or 1.7.5 (or whatever is it) will migrate all player names to their UUID.

    What does that mean for me? If you're using MineQuest, when that milestone comes out, UPGRADE IMMEDIATELY to prevent loss of data.

    Will you stop being lazy and update it then? I'll try my best. University is quite hectic, though.
