Upon registering, I wasn't aware that the username would be used in game. Unfortunately, I put my actual name. I really don't want this to be made public in multiplayer and would much rather a pseudonym. Is there anyway we can change our minecraft names?
I did the same thing and used my name when signing up not realizing the significance of it. As for getting a refund and then getting the game again, seriously? It should be as simple as updating a database field. Notch only has to look at our handles to see that they do in fact contain our name and isn't just a case of wanting it changed for no real reason. It's a valid concern, and there should be a warning or something up on the site at the very least that tells you when you register you will be stuck with that name and it will be publicly viewable.
Did this already and still been waiting. I've actually emailed every available email that I could find, tweet, and private message. I don't consider this a fault on my end or incompetence on where to find the proper support - it's just a lack thereof (which is claimed on the site, I know). However, I think there ought to at least be a disclaimer explaining the usage of the name in addition to support for those already in this position considering I now know I am not the only one, by any length, with this very same issue. It's a simple name change - not anything drastic by any means.
Im going to bump this as well. I was under the same impression and used my regular forum user name , not my regular IGN i usually use. Now everytime I log into the game, I have this annoyance that wont go away =(
Still got the same problem. It seems this is linked to the problem of selling loads of your game in a short space of time. The other systems i.e. customer support, struggle to keep up. I can see from the number of views of this thread that this is an issue for a great many other people.
In the short term it would be great if something was put on the sign up page and a way was put forward to change usernames. Any chance of that happening?
Same here. I would really like people to stop telling me that APB is dead.
I know not many sites let you change your username in the first place, I would just like to be able to change it on Minecraft.
