01. In-Game Namechange

To change your account nickname:

If you want a new nickname, you can ask us to change your name do it yourself!
All your current stats are saved, so you won't loose them.
So, there is no need to create a new account, we you can just rename it!

You MUST join IRC to do this. You can use the web based client if you want.
Once you are connected to one of the GTANet IRC servers, you can join #LVP (/join #LVP) to chat a little bit, or send a PM to Nuwani directly to change your password. (Nuwani is our main IRC bot, other official LVP bots are all named in N*w*n* style.)
The PM to Nuwani must meet the following condition: !changenick OldNick Pass NewNick

To send a PM directly, use:
/msg Nuwani !changenick CurrentNickname CurrentPassword NewNickname

Note: Do NOT confuse /msg Nuwani with !msg Nuwani. Please prefix the command with / instead of !. Using !msg will lead to your password being exposed to everyone in the channel. If that happens, look at section #2 for instructions to change your password.

Nuwani will now send you a PM back, if the account rename was successful or not.
Nickname or password incorrect.
Info: That nickname is already in use.
Your nickname has been changed.

If you still need some help, or you are unable to join IRC, you may post a topic in the Help Requests board and we'll do it for you.

Also, don't forget to change your nickname in the SA-MP client.

Want a nickname that is already taken or registered? We can provide you that nickname if the following criteria are met:

  • The account must have been idle for at least four years.
  • The account may not belong to a former member of our staff.
  • The account may not belong to a VIP player.
Please mind that administrators also may refuse your request if the account belongs to a well known figure in the community, even if they've been idle for a long time. More information on our nickname policy can be found here.

Post a topic in the Help Requests board to make a request and we'll certainly consider it.




02. Password Change

You can now change your password by yourself!
You MUST join IRC to do this. You can use the webbased client if you want.
Once you are connected to one of the GTANet IRC servers, you can join #LVP (/join #LVP) to chat a little bit, or send a PM to Nuwani directly to change your password. (Nuwani is our main IRC bot, other official LVP bots are all named in N*w*n* style.)
The PM to Nuwani must meet the following condition: !changepassword Nickname OldPass NewPass

To send a PM directly, use:
/msg Nuwani !changepass CurrentNickname CurrentPassword NewPassword

Note: Do NOT confuse /msg Nuwani with !msg Nuwani. Please prefix the command with / instead of !. Using !msg will lead to your password being exposed to everyone in the channel. If that happens, change your password right away using the correct method.

Nuwani will now send you a PM back, if the password update was successful or not.
Nickname or password incorrect.
Your password has been changed.

If it failed, you probably mistyped your username and/or password.

If you lost your password, you may post a topic in the Help Requests board to request a new password.
Of course, people will abuse this function, so we check many things to be sure that you are the real person.
If we can't find out if you are the real owner, we deny the password reset, and you can create a new account with another name.

DO NOT mention your old and/or new password here.
A member of the LVP Management will PM you as soon as possible to ask which password you want.

DO NOT send your password to non-Management members.
Current list of LVP Management members can be found here.



03. Stats Reset

Sometimes, for what reason you may have, people want their stats to be reset (Meaning: 0).
The following stats can be reset:
  • Kills/Deaths (Ratio) (If we do, we change both to 0, because the ratio depends on it)
  • Fight club kills/deaths (ratio)
  • Online Time
  • Bank
  • Skin (You should be able to use /my skin save and /my skin remove ingame)
  • Reaction tests
  • Minigames won
  • Carbombs detonated 
  • Exports
Other values are not important, and will not be reset/deleted.
Post a topic in the Help Requests board and give us the reason why, and which values you want to be reset. These changes are irreversible, so please be sure about it before requesting.



04. Forum Account

You can make changes to your forum account via the User CP. Some of the available options include:

- Edit Profile
- Edit Username
- Edit Email Address
- Edit Avatar
- Edit Signature
- Edit Preferences



05. IRC Nickname

If you have joined our IRC channel(s), and you want to change your nickname at IRC, type: /nick yournewnick.

To register your IRC nickname, use: /ns register
To login, use: /ns identify Nickname Password
Use /ns help to know about various other commands and their uses.

Note: Changing your nick at IRC has nothing to do with your ingame and/or forum name.
Note: Las Venturas Playground can not offer support for IRC, this is a separate service offered by GTANet (Small intro).
#2
Quick revision: since switching our forum software from SMF to MyBB, we have enabled the ability for Players and VIPs to change their own forum username.
