Verify Minecraft Username 1.2 not working in 2.1.6

Just installed this plugin, enabled it, looked around on the registration page/edit profile page and there's no trace of the plugin. Any help?

Also, not sure if this is landing in the correct place to ask this. I'm sure a mod will move the discussion if I'm in the wrong place.

    Look at the code of the plugin:

    $Username = $FormValues['Name'];
    if(file_get_contents('http://minecraft.net/haspaid.jsp?user=' . $Username) == 'false') {
      $Sender->Form->AddError('Please enter a valid Minecraft username.');
    

    The name that you specify during registration is compared with a premium minecraft username. Registration in your forum will not be possible if such a name doesn't exist.

    That way the plugin ensures that all usernames are valid Minecraft usernames, but the accounts are not linked - there is no validation if the forum user really is that Minecraft user.
    Because this check is missing, your users don't have to enter any more Minecraft account related informations than only choosing an existing Minecraft name as their username.

    Thanks for trying my addon!

    The plugin is invisible unless the user selects a non-premium minecraft username as their Vanilla username.
