Firstly, a shout out to Jamie for sorting this out.
To find out if you have a pending name change request, click this link: https://www.sacnr.com/account/namechange/. If you want to change your name, click "New Name Change Request" and fill out the form.
Note: the comments section on this page is no longer being monitored, so posting NAMECHANGEMEPLS or PLZKEEPMYNAME will not do anything anymore!
I want my name change!
If you have a name change that is currently 'Processing' and you still want to continue with the name change, then post a comment on this page, and include the text NAMECHANGEMEPLS anywhere in your comment.
I don't want my name change anymore, or I want a different one to what I requested
If you have a name change that is currently 'Processing' and you no longer want the name change, then post a comment on this page, and include the text PLZKEEPMYNAME anywhere in your comment. We will reject the name change, and if you want to apply for another one you will be able to do so in 7 days.
I don't care about any of this
If you do not post any comment, we will automatically reject your name change 7 days from now.
Here is the help page with the details of how name changes work: https://www.sacnr.com/help/28/.
Any questions? Ask away below :)
My name change request was accepted but now I can't log in!
Your password is tied to your username, so when your username changes your password must also be changed (part of the security updates earlier this year). The name change system is supposed to send you a new password, but due to a bug some users may not have received it. If there is no new password in the email you received, then you can simply use the lost password form to regain access to your account: https://www.sacnr.com/lost-password/.

Hey everyone. We're changing a few rules due to popular demand. We've already updated the rules/help pages, but see the full details below and feel free to give us your feedback in the comments.
Scamming is no longer allowed. If players agree with each other on a trade, all players involved must now honor their end of the deal to the best of their ability.
Scamming was against the rules back in the day, but it was changed to force people to use the /sell command for properties as a way to make sure house taxes were correct for the value paid. Unfortunately, that didn't really work as expected.
We still want to make sure players use the "/sell [Player]" command to keep property taxes working correctly. So, if you get scammed because you did not use /sell [Player], you will not be refunded, but the scammer will be punished no matter what.
2. Car bombs
From now on, when you are killed or damaged from a car bomb, you may place a hit on or kill the player that car bombed you.
This was always disallowed in the past, but due to a misunderstanding of the rules it was never enforced. There was backlash when we started enforcing it, so finally we have changed the rule back officially.

Are they annoying?
Are they being fixed?
What have you done to fix them:
We added logging to pinpoint the exact line of code causing the crash, so we now know where the script is crashing.
Unfortunately the crash points to a plugin we're using which is no longer supported, and for which there is no upgrade path. We implemented another plugin, but because we couldn't use the latest version due to limitations in our script, we had to use an old version which had different problems.
We compiled another plugin to attempt to replace it, however there were complications when compiling so it took longer than expected to put together. It's now compiled, but we need to retrofit it into the SACNR script to continue. This is what we are currently doing.
We rewrote a portion of SACNR into another language to see if it was viable, as it would solve the plugin issue. We've done 3000 lines so far and this work is ongoing as a last resort.
Rest assured - we will find a way to fix it, but it will take time.

Due to the recent "incident", there was too much hacked money in the economy. We have decided to roll back house + biz owners to the 6th of March
~3 weeks ago and reset all players' cash. House and biz values have also been reset, so houses and biz's will be much cheaper to buy and you'll pay less taxes.
This should create some new competition between players. Not everyone is going to like this, but give it a try - I'm sure most of you will change your mind.
