Name Tag (name UNKNOWN)


anyone was able to help me with name tag?

My problem is:

Some time by joining the party, name of some players show as UNKNOWN (server lag?), but the problem is, it stays and won't be refreshing until reload UI.

Here is my tag code:

tags['lumen:reactionname'] = function(unit)
        local playerName = UnitName(unit) or ""
        local color
        if UnitIsPlayer(unit) then
            local class, key = UnitClassBase(unit)
            color = key and RAID_CLASS_COLORS[class].colorStr or "ffffffff"
            local reaction = UnitReaction(unit,'player') or 5
            local col = FACTION_BAR_COLORS[reaction]
            color = string.format("ff%02x%02x%02x",col.r*255,col.g*255,col.b*255)
        return string.format("|c%s%s",color,playerName)
and the code inside the party1.lua
  core:createNameString(self, font_big, cfg.fontsize - 1, "THINOUTLINE", 80, 29, "LEFT", 130)
  self:Tag(self.Name, '[lumen:reactionname]')
