    Hi there,

    Many people have been talking about TPA traps and the sort. Apparently there's some glitches where two players can have the same /nick as well(?) but I digress.

    My proposal is to have /tpa requests display a player's real IGN instead of nickname. This would make issues about duplicate /nicks less impactful (as well as any possible future bugs) and would increase accuracy & communication among players.

    Looking forward to your feedback.

    I think this would be cool. TP trapping is really dumb and would be cool to say goodbye to it. (sort of)

    Wouldn't remove tpa trapping, but would make it easier for players to keep track of and know who they are teleporting/teleporting to

    Thread title should be “remove nickname permissions for all ranks” or “I’m developing my own essential plugin replacement”

    Awful suggestion.

    When someone tpa's to you while they have a nickname, there's a tilde (~) before their name. Always check before accepting the tp request with /realname (nickname). If there's multiple online at once, just message the person before accepting.

    As monka said, that's just how essentials works and it's not really fixable.

    It is fixable but I'm pretty sure becto runs a custom coded essentials... not only that with a ~ before nicknames it just takes a bit of reading to see who it is. Its factions, deceiving others is all part of the game.

    EssentialsX is an open source project on Github. It is not necessary for someone to "develop a replacement" just to change this one thing. Someone could fork the project, change it to display IGN rather than nick on teleport requests, and submit a pull request. In the meantime, Becto could switch to the forked plugin.

    If it is true that Becto runs a custom build of EssentialsX, the change could be incorporated in that custom build (which is already a fork).

    Granted, this probably isn't a priority for Becto, so it would be more effective to pursue it as an EssentialsX enhancement request, but "awful suggestion" seems unnecessarily harsh, and your in-game claims that Skizzles's "entire post is flase[sic]" and that he "doesnt[sic] know how plugins work" seem incorrect.

    Better get to work, I don't see anyone else willing to do this when staff members have already said it will remain the way it is. If you didn't just read this thread you would know that I mentioned all this already as a possibility on this thread https://becto.net/threads/factions-and-potentially-server-wide-nick-glitch.4795/#post-33730 but I wouldn't expect you to make any intelligent/productive comments after our in-game conversation.

    I acknowledged that it probably wasn't a priority for Becto, and that it would be more effective to take it up with EssentialsX.

    Our in-game conversation was about whether your statements about Skizzles were justified. I maintain that they were not. Further, your abuse toward me is unwarranted. There is no reason to insult anyone over this. I think we agree that Becto is not going to make this happen. Why make it personal?

    Let's keep the conversation on topic and impersonal.

    Well you can always use /realname before accepting. Plus its factions its known for back stabbing.

    I could easily fork the build and fix this, but it's not needed... deceiving is a part of factions plain and simple and I think Bloop states it the best
    As for any comments about me just give it up, move on, and stop being toxic because it really gets old.
    Agreed Becto would not make it happen because why would they trust any custom fork from someone from the player base, it would require going over which at that point they might as well do it themself. I think this one needs a good ole lock lmao

    It took hours and hours of hard work, but I have finally finished the pull request: https://github.com/EssentialsX/Essentials/pull/2422

    Okay, I admit, it only took seconds of work. It's a stupidly simple change. It was so simple, I forgot to "get to work" on it, and accidentally finished it before I started.

    They're welcome to review the change. It's pretty complicated though:

    I could fork it and add changes myself to make it toggleable, only if the community is up for it though.

    I agree with this. I understand i can do /realname, but what if you need to tp immediately? Either way I think this should be added and a good suggestion without turning the tide of the game.

    I'll give it a +1 only because I know that the players who are most culpable for doing this often make a hobby of it. Its really an underhanded tactic.
