    posted a message on Why are new versions 1.1X and not 2.X ?

    Nothing ridiculous about not excluding potential customers. From a strictly business perspective, defying a demographic for the sake of making a statement is a great way to lose a lot of money. :P

    Maybe they'll enable the "Dinnerbone" effect on all the players so we're all upside down haha. That would be awesome.


    Given your avatar at the moment, this must seem really ironic in hindsight. :D

    posted a message on Bad Tips

    Some of the bigger modders I know tripped over an interesting bit of code, think it was added in 1.8.1. Apparently, there is a tiny - 1 in 100,000 - chance that a naturally generated villager will trade 5 of the old Golden Apples for 1 emerald. Problem is, once it spawns, it can never spawn again in that particular world, so killing it is inadvisable. Best to check villagers when you meet them, just in case. :)

    I'm not sure if it's illegal to be breaking the EULA or not, but i'm assuming it is.


    It might be more accurate to say "Mojang has a right to decide how people use their intellectual property, and can sue and/or prosecute, at their discretion, if a person or group are not in line with their wishes." That is, it's ultimately up to them whether any legal action is taken.

    Quote from webrosc»
    As a community we can decide to support the servers or support the EULA, we can stop going to the server who break it and report them, while going to the servers that do follow the EULA, servers break the EULA because people goto them and spend their money there


    Sound advice, this. :D

    I find that many servers break the EULA, but no one is stopping and possibly is encouraging this!


    If you know of servers that violate the EULA, report them to Mojang directly, so they can handle it. :)

    But still, Mojang doesn't do anything to shut down these servers. I would expect that a community with most of the players supporting the EULA, to ban servers that violate the EULA from advertising. And the Minecraft Forums is one of those big communities.

    That's the thing: the EULA is Mojang's prerogative to enforce, or not enforce, as they see fit. If we're speaking from a purely legal perspective, only they can do that. Our forum does not, and cannot, enforce that. Similarly, vigilante activities (blacklisting, call-outs, etc) are, regardless of the target, in violation of forum policy.

    posted a message on Servers are breaking the EULA

    So... I am guessing that the forum decided to allow pay2win servers to advertise here?

    Hi there!

    Your question should already be answered in my previous post. In short, we cannot reasonably determine, nor realistically enforce, the EULA outside of the forum itself. Our only jurisdiction is the forum, and it is where we keep our focus. Whether an advertising server is or isn't in violation isn't for us to decide, but for Mojang. If you feel a server in particular violates the EULA, you can (and should) report it to Mojang directly, and allow them to handle it. :)

    posted a message on Servers are breaking the EULA

    The short version about EULA enforcement is, "We cannot reasonably enforce it."


    The longer version: Enforcing the EULA is, ultimately, Mojang's prerogative. It is their intellectual property to do what they like with, and part of that is deciding when, or if, they will enforce it. If you would like to report servers in violation, I would encourage you to drop a line here, and Mojang will address it as they will. :)


    We are, above all else, a forum. By nature, forums encourage community discussion and interaction, and part of that is discussion about servers. Everyone can have their say about servers here, and that is fine to discuss, within reason (obvious exceptions exist, with name-calling, flaming, etc).


    This thread still exists for the same reason threads about servers elsewhere still exist: it is open discussion, and we're all about that. However, what we cannot reasonably do is carry our rules outside of the forum itself, since it lies out of our control. What a server actually does, in practice, is not for us to decide. Again, if you feel you have found a server that breaks Mojang's rules, please report it here.
