  1. Hey all you devs,

    i know this is not the best way but i just want to have a kind dev review a short part of the towny
    source as shade seems to be not around for a while now. Many ppl have the same issue than me that towny is the last plugin missing for upgrading to #617.

    the issue is just a small bug in source i think but i'm no java programmer :(

    ISSUE: names with (_) underscore cause towny to erase the town/resident files

    code part where i assume the bug to be:

        public static boolean isValidName(String name) {
            try {
                if (TownySettings.namePattern == null)
                    namePattern = Pattern.compile(getString(TownySettings.Str.NAME_CHECK_REGEX));
                return TownySettings.namePattern.matcher(name).find();
            } catch (PatternSyntaxException e) {
                return false;
    AND TownyUniverse

        public String checkAndFilterName(String name) throws InvalidNameException {
            String out = TownySettings.filterName(name);
            if (!TownySettings.isValidName(out))
                throw new InvalidNameException(out + " is an invalid name.");
            return out;

  6. adding: name_check_regex=^[a-zA-Z0-9_]+[a-zA-Z0-9._-]*$
    to the towny config file worked for me :)

    so this is fixed i think
