    Hello

    I worked on this for my server and I store the UUID's with dashes, so when I had to grab the UUID from Minecraft's API it returned it wthout dashes so I created a function that adds them back

    Code:
    public static String insertDashUUID(String uuid) {
    StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer(uuid);
    sb.insert(8, "-");
     
    sb = new StringBuffer(sb.toString());
    sb.insert(13, "-");
     
    sb = new StringBuffer(sb.toString());
    sb.insert(18, "-");
     
    sb = new StringBuffer(sb.toString());
    sb.insert(23, "-");
     
    return sb.toString();
    }
    
    Example

    I only added this because it was easier than doing player.getUniqueId().toString().replace("-", "") every time I wanted to grab their UUID.
