With the ability to change your name of your minecraft player now, please be aware that at the moment. We have nothing to work along side that. This means, that when you change your player name, you will log in as a new player, and not have access to your other plots, houses or inventories. Please be aware that at the moment, we will not refund your inventory, or transfer your town plots if you decide to go forward with the name change, It is a huge amount of work to change over each player. According to mojangs website, changing the player name should still keep all items, and statistics, but at the moment, for our server this is not true. I will be looking into it. When we find a mod or plugin that can do this for us, we will work to adding it.
How does this work with bans?
Banning a player applied to the unique profile id and not the player name itsself. What this means is that if a player named "Bob" gets banned, and changes his name to "Joel", he will still be banned.

Thanks and sorry for any confusion.
