Somehow v5 related, so it goes into here. What I want is:
community name support for findplayer()
"warpto" working with the community names
(maybe) the RC playerlist also showing the community names

Because, things like "warpto Graal123456" are just...well. Same with findplayer().

And on their profile, show community names, or... make community names, account names! or vice verca

you need to do findplayer("Graal######");? O.o
I just use findplayer("Chompy"); etc.. or did I not understand what you meant Crow :O?

What exactly are these community names? And how often do you need to directly use an account name in findplayer() ?

I only use directly account names in finplayer() when I'm debugging something :o

I think he is talking about if you doing something related to what a player can see such as /party communityname. Being able to findplayer() through such wouldn't work if you didn't know the account name.

Chompy, it works for you, because your account was made before the new system.

We can add a new command findplayerbycommunityname() or so (or something shorter), it should not modify the behaviour of findplayer(). The command "warpto" should be made compatible yes, also stuff like /opencomments and /openrights should accept community names I guess, the staff= list already accepts them.

Would be very cool if you could add that, yep :D
