Missing Players
« on: 6 Apr 2019, 22:05:48 »
So I tried doing the /player command on some older people that played last summer, but they were all missing. I know where their wilds and town plots are (since I'd go over there and help) so I used my elyctra and flew over and I saw I was spelling the name correctly. Did these people get removed or is the command not functioning correctly? It used to work even if they're online. (In case your wondering, I did it so I could see if they were on recently and I wasn't so I could see if they still played)

Edit: Same things with gifts. Tried sending it an active player and it said they have to be online before to be able to send a gift.

This appears to be a bit of a bug with how we're processing requests for users that haven't been on since they've updated their Minecraft username. If a player updates their Minecraft username it's possible that we've fetched their new name automatically and as such commands such as /gift ... and /player ... will be working with their new Minecraft username. If you try using their new username then hopefully those commands will work.

I will look into the feasibility of resolving this though, because I understand it might be a tad confusing/annoying to have to look up their new name.

If you need assistance with working our a player's new username then let me know.
