    That was an unintentional bug I found while I was testing SkyWars. I do not know what happened, nor how to reproduce it.

    Umm that bug maybe just makes like the people already disconnected but accidentally the name is stuck because of lag maybe but for this plugin, its actually possible if we can make the fake player invisible maybe using the hide plugin but making the nametag stay

    Did you know how a nametag is made? It is made via the $username field in AddPlayerPacket. How do you suppose to send an AddPlayerPacket with a nametag unattached to a player entity?

    Remember:
    1. We're on Minecraft PocketEdition, not PC Edition.
    2. The floating text (aka Holograms) are possible because Mojang add the ability to interact with Custom NameTags on Mobs and they can also be spawned independently.
    3. The screenshot of @Connor4898 is a bug of MCPE, it can be reproduceble sometimes but it depends on the client, it's version of MCPE and the lag that he/the server has

    I'm pretty sure they can't be spawned independently. They made the holograms appear because they could shrink horses down into nothingness.

    We're just exploring this possibility in Pocket Edition. We know that we are limited and not the same as PC Edition.

    Just spawn a player entity in 2 blocks the ground, so the client cannot see the player and set the name tag to whatever you want.

    I was thinking about doing that, but it'd nice if there was a less 'hacky' way.

    How many times had I said the name tag is bound to the entity! If you vanish the player, you must vanish the name tag together.
    I'd thought of this, but what if there is no ground?

    Obviously we'd be able to use it on the ground only.

    No. It has a timeout of despawning, and only shows to one person.

    It's blocks, right? Or is it a map or something?

    It is exactly flying texts as nametags.
