If I write /say @p is cool into a command block, what pops up in the chat is:

[@]LolybeeHD is cool

How can I change the @ to something else (like "Server")?
Renaming the command block in an anvil sadly does not work.

  • The wiki says that renaming in an anvil should work. Can you list the exact sequence of clicks that you do to rename it, maybe something went wrong there? Nov 15, 2017 at 11:10
  • What do you mean with secuence of clicks?

  • I mean with what mouse button you click on what in what order. Nov 15, 2017 at 12:00

Unlike in the Java Edition, in Minecraft Pocket Edition renaming it in an anvil will not work. You must change the hover note in the command block editor.

enter image description here

Once you enter in the command and activate the command block with redstone, it should say [(Hover Note)](Playername) is cool.

    Just don’t use this with a /tell command, as the Hover Note’s name will get repeated twice.
