How to change your forum name

Ever since Mojang implemented name changes, we've had a huge increase in requests for forum name changes. because of this, we've automated the process of changing your forum username.

A few notes (as also mentioned during the actual process):

  • You can only change TO your CURRENT Minecraft username. No exceptions.
  • You will have to link your forum and Minecraft accounts first.
  • You can't change to existing forum usernames. Owning a Minecraft username does NOT entitle you to that forum username. If a very old/inactive account exists with your username, you can contact a forum administrator to request that username. This is NOT a guarantee and the decision made by the forum administrator will be final.
  • Your previous username will be immediately available for registration by another user. Don't use this for temporary changes.
  • Both your forum and Minecraft username have to be allowed according to the HiveMC rules. Breaking these rules may lead to actions against your accounts.
  • You can use this tool as often as you change your Minecraft username. Please note that we can't guarantee the availability of any forum username.
