Wintercrest Staff will no longer unlock items after Minecraft name changes (not /nicks).
The number of players on our Wintercrest server has grown. People are now changing their Minecraft names on such a frequent basis that staff cannot perform their regular server duties and keep up with unlocking items, chests, shops or horses from so many players.
IF YOU CHANGE YOUR NAME: It is YOUR responsibility to unlock all items before your name change.
This includes Doors, Horses, Chest Shops, Item Frames, Chests, and Shulkers, etc.
We are not responsible for items not accessible because they are locked. If you cannot open/unlock an item, it is at YOUR expense.
Also ensure that your inventory/enderchest/playervaults are EMPTY before a name change. These may not be affected but sometimes can be! We can not get your items back for you if lost!
AGAIN: Please be certain everything is handled before changing your name with Mojang.
