Stupid question and I think I already know the answer so it is just to confirm what I think.

 

I have a player that needs help to rename them selves.

 

Is there away I can do the rename and it to hold?

Unfortunately it is not possible. The !rename command only changes the name on the server end. The client cvars remain untouched. There isn't any other methods either. If the name needs to be something specific only on your server, then you could make a Lua script that would always, automatically, edit the userinfo of that player.

It would be good in future to maybe add a parameter to 'save' the !rename into the database so that GUID is stuck with that name...? (undoable)

That would be possible, but not in 0.7.0.

Sounds like a good addition for the future then :D I'm definitely in no hurry, but it would save me banning people for abusive names if I could 'force' their real and clean alias.

Wouldn't it be better if server was sending info packet about rename and the whole thing would be exec'ed on client side so server doesn't have to manipulate userinfo?

That would open it for abuse.

For that there is an LUA script which denies certain names if the user doesnt have a certain level.. For example on our servers, anyone below level 11 (trial member), gets warned then kicked if they don't remove =F|A= from their name.

 

But this rename suggestion is definitely useful either way - for people with very abusive names etc.

I'd personally ban people who use racist nicks.
