    Hey guys! I have this piece of code....

    player.setDisplayName("[Test]" + player.getName());
    This works beautifully on a fresh install of bukkit, but if I try to run it with essentials..... nothing happens. No change to names. I could also see the problem, where if the players display name is already set by Essentials or something else, it will get reset by this but if you do this instead

    player.setDisplayName("[Test]" + player.getDisplayName());
    Then you run the risk of looping to something like this


    Is there an elegant solution?

    Thanks for your time.

    And I have a problem with people necroposting. Essentials chat changes the way nicknames and things of that nature are handled, just look at their documentation.
