    [​IMG] Username History is a very lightweight plugin that provides a simple command to retrieve a full, detailed history of name changes for a given player! Additionally, Username History provides several API methods to expose this data for your own plugin or project.

    How To Use

    Just use the following command:
    • /original <player>
    Username History will retrieve the player's history directly from Mojang's servers, including the precise time of each name change. Results are cached to prevent unnecessary web traffic.

    Developers

    Username History provides several static methods for your convenience:

    UsernameHistory.getHistoryFromUuid(UUID)
    UsernameHistory.getHistoryFromUsername(String)
    UsernameHistory.getUUIDOf(String)

    These methods all make synchronous web requests, so it is highly recommended not to run them on the main thread.

    I've been looking for something exactly like this. It'd be nice if there was a config file to customize formatting, etc. but the default formatting is good and doesn't waste screen space or anything.

    Nice, but upgradeable ... would be nice to see even the matching UUID .

      Thanks for the input. I didn't want to clutter the screen with extra information that most people don't want to see, but maybe I can add a separate command to print someone's UUID. Let me know if you have any other suggestions!
