Mojang will change your username if it's too offensive

Thinking of making a username with some...not appropriate language in it? Think again, as ever since they added support for changing usernames, Mojang has been on the lookout for vulgur usernames. One Reddit user posted:
"So a few years ago when I was signing up for Minecraft, I tried logging into an account that already existed, but couldn't get into it. For some reason I got angry at Mojang for this and created a new account called MojangSucks****, which is what I've been using ever since."

He went on to say he discovered his username had been changed to "NoWeDont" by Marc Watson, a support manager at Mojang. Obviously this was just playing, but Marc also explained when and where Mojang changes usernames:
"FYI, when support changes a username, it's usually because it's like a 9 or 10 on our offensiveness scale. It's pretty hard to shock the support team, but we've gotten some fairly horrific names. Almost every time we will leave the name alone (even if [it starts with mojang]) and leave it up to the servers to ban them. I prefer a light touch with a largely self-moderating community."

So there you have it, remember to play nice on Minecraft or Mojang just might change your name. See the source link below for the original post.

This reminds me of that guy who got his name changed to FluffyBunny5 after bragging about getting an inappropriate name on twitter.
