someone can please help me? I just bough minecraft, and I want to use my name : Danielkinz
after I payed, I wanted to choose the name Danielkinz, but the site said to me that someone is using it. I not remember that I ever bough minecraft, and no one exept of me using this account (danielkinz is my name on all the diffrent sites/forums/games Im using, including on minecraft.net). I really not want to add anything to this name becouse that will look like I stole someone's name, and I want it to be simple.Posted Image
the only thing that I remember that may do, something about that is that once, my friend said me that he found a way to get free minecraft, but it didn't worked.the way was to go to the payment site, and after clicking on the button to go to the paying site, while it was loading to write the site of compleating of payment(when the account buying was still at the old site), is that should matter? ( <---  Im really sorry that I even tried, someone forced me to try that before him, to test if its working, or he was beating me up Posted Image )
can anyone please help me with that problem ? Posted Image
help will be much appreciated
my username is [email protected]
I also have a file with the order ID and the transaction ID
also, I think that I accidently made my name to DanielkinzMinecraft or to my username,can you please to fix this into Danielkinz?

Try picking another username. Maybe your friends used that username on purpose to make you said. Maybe DanielKinz with a capital k. Good Luck

Im sure in 100% that no one stole it, I think that its becouse the try to get free minecraft(again,sorry). no one exept of me is using the name Danielkinz. can someone check some kind of activity list for that name or something and to change my in-game-name to Danielkinz? this is my name on all the minecraft communities,and I want to leave it as Danielkinz. also, as I said, I think that I accidently made my name to my username,or to DanielkinzMinecraft.

You cannot change your username in Minecraft, not currently. Once you made it, you cannot modify it.

when I click on the button that say: use my corrent name,  its using my username as my in game name? also,when I played cracked minecraft, the username Danielkinz didn't had a skin,so probably no one was using it. please,someone,help :(
I really want to support this awesome game,but if I will not have my favorite name I will prefer to get payback, becouse I will not use it anyway.
In my opinion,name is like an ID card,its showing everything about you. but when you change name, you actually change also personality. even the smallest change can make a big difrence.

If someone has already registered the name then you will have to pick something else. Currently there is nothing you can do about it.

Googling Danielkinz gives 7260 results so its not like its uncommon.
At some point Mojang may allow name changed, but it has no ETA, and they may free up registered but none premium names (or they may not)

P.S. We don't support the use of cracked clients accounts here.

No way that the name is taken. all thouse 7260 results are my diffrent accounts and posts on diffrent forums and games. Im using this name for already 5 YEARS.
no one exept of me is using this account. I think that its becouse of the bug that I used, it maby registered the name, but made the account to not premium. I played cracked for a really long time, hoping that one day I will buy this game, and when Im buying the game you are telling me that I cant play with my name ?

I checked, and probably clicking on this button isn't setting name after all, so I still can select a name.
but I will continue asking for my name, becouse its a bug that its writing that someone is using it.

If the username you have chosen already exists in Minecraft or on another Mojang account, you will need to choose a different name. Because users could previously register a username before purchasing, removal of unpaid, previously registered usernames is planned for the future.

Listen to me, my name is not taken, its bugged,Im sure. my account on minecraft.net was Danielkinz, and I was forced to try bug, that probably locked the name Danielkinz. I not want to use any other name, becouse Danielkinz is my name already for 5 years, and I not want to make any changes to it, even small changes like capital letter, becouse when I have more than 1 name, after some time I forget all the other usernames, even if I write them do.
If someone stole my name, I want to know at least who it is.

Here is something for you to see : http://prntscr.com/28mq30
its taken from the site minebook, here is the site of the list : https://minebook.me/c/directory/d
I went to minebook and checked the player names, and there is no player called Danielkinz.
If you will check the list or the picture, you will find that if my name was taken, it was should to be between danielkh121 and danielko8, but its not there - meaning that I should be able to use it !
As I said, its only a bug !!!!

If you did indeed register your username on Minecraft.net you should have the option to link that old Minecraft account to your new Mojang account. I can't remember how it was supposed to work but I do know its possible as I did that.

Additionally, I just checked Minebook for my username and mine didn't show up either. Maybe its not that no one is using the name, maybe its instead that no one has registered an account on Minebook with that name.

I figured I'd score as either Rogue or Ranger as those are my favorite ways to play.

I registered at the first time through minecraft.net, but my email was deleted, and there wasn't any way to change it in minecraft.net without buying premium, but if I was buying premium, I wasn't getting the file with the order ID and the transaction ID, so I waited untill it will change. when I found that I can buy it through the mojang site, I made a new account, and bough premium (becouse with that account I have a working email), but when I wanted to choose my name as Danielkinz, I was told that its taken.
The username is probably concidered as taken becouse it was registered on minecraft.net, but it wasn't premium, and now that I want to give this name to my mojang account, Its probably detecting my old minecraft.net account, and becouse of that its saving the name, and becouse its not premium, its not showing on the players list. if thats the problem, someone can please to fix that? (if you need you can delete the account called "Danielkinz" on minecraft.net, Im not using it anymore,and its not premium anyway, Im using my mojang account).
also, jaxton, I actually found your name there : http://prntscr.com/28nf27

prooph that they both my:
minecraft.net : http://prntscr.com/28nc65
mojang account : http://prntscr.com/28ncle

Ahh, interesting. I guess I didn't move down far enough.

My guess is that as you said, since you already created one account with that name, even if its not premium, that's your issue. I know when I made mine premium I used my old Minecraft.net account and converted it.

Sounds like your only option would be to contact support directly and explain the issue. Whether or not that will help, I don't know.

I had checked the 'J' page, weird.

As for contacting your best option is on the Mojang page itself. Might even be able to do it from the account you made.

I'm having the same problem.

A friend of mine bought a minecraft gift code and gave it to me.
I'm trying to register the username Bonerock, which is the name i've been using fo 6 years.Like Daniel, i'm not able to create my account with this name in spite of the name hasn't been used.
Besides, when i try to use the name Hipercubo, it says that the profile name is available. But when I click the 'Choose Name' button, it stays like nothing has happened.I sent a ticket yesterday afternoon.

I hope they can help me soon.

Hi Iván,

The username Bonerock is already in use for a Minecraft pocket edition account so you will not be able to choose that username and need to choose something else.

Best regards,
Hampus

Maybe your username is used too in Minecraft Pocket Edition. :(

there is a diffrence. I searched in google "bonerock", and I found more than 70,000 results, most of them are sites. so this name is quite popular. to my name, there are only around 7,180 results. Im using my name already 5 years, and I was playing in alot of games,and Im commenting alot on diffrent forums.
also, I dont think that its possible that this username will be used in minecraft PE becouse its my name on minecraft.net, and becouse of that, its saving the name Danielkinz to all the mojang games, for this account.
the thing that Im asking is that this account will be deleted, and that the name will be moved to my mojang account.
