    I still don't know the answer to this.

    The "Xbox One Support" forum.

    Modded minecraft is a completely different thing; more different (from "java") than bedrock is.


    Those are two of the most active areas on this entire forum, and there is an absolute, clear distinction between modded and unmodified. Merging them will make 1 single forum huge and a mixture of two totally different types of request.; a great many people use only unmodified, and have absolutely no interest in modded, and vice-versa; the challenges, the knowledge, the skillsets and the questions are completely different.

    The reason to have separate forums is to make it easier for people who browse the forum to find threads that are relevant to them, however, in the case of Minecraft: Java Edition support, having the separate forums causes confusion amongst people posting about their support issues, we are regularly moving threads to the right support forum. The forum has a prefix system which we will enable to allow people to specify if their thread relates to a modded copy of Minecraft: Java Edition, or an unmodified Minecraft: Java Edition, and this can be used by people browsing the forum to determine if the thread is relevant to their area of expertise which is the only reason to have separate forums. Furthermore, although the Minecraft: Java Edition support forums are active, they are receiving single-digit new threads per day, so while this will increase the number of threads in one forum it will still be less than one new page of threads per day.

    Since the Better Together Update, Xbox One is joined into the Bedrock Edition. So, all Xbox One forums are under the category "Minecraft Pocket Edition".

    I sincerely hope that they can change the word "Pocket Edition" to "Bedrock Edition" since it is now unified and an official name for Pocket, Win 10 and Xbox One.


    There is no such thing as "Bedrock Edition" so we will not be using that name. Bedrock is the name of the underlying platform used by the cross-platform Minecraft game. The game built on the Bedrock platform is called Minecraft and that is the name we are using, you can find the Minecraft forum here: http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/minecraft

    The Pocket Edition forum, as mentioned here, will most likely be moved into the Editions category in the near future.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    I'm confused; where should an Xbox 1 user (on the current version) be asking for support? I thought the "unmodified minecraft support" perhaps, because their "main section" is just called "Minecraft:", but that can't be right because there's no mods. That's presumably for java, because there is no section in support for "Minecraft:Java edition" (although that's where the other stuff for that version is).


    Surely they don't post under "Minecraft: Xbox 1"? Because that'd be different from the main sections where xbox 1 refers to the older versions?


    Who's on first?


    The support category will be undergoing some changes, including consolidating the 2 different support forums for Java edition (clients), meaning "Unmodified Minecraft Client Support" and "Modded Client Support" will become "Minecraft: Java Edition Support". Due to a large number of threads, this may take a few days to happen.

    Although the new Minecraft game is functionally the same across multiple platforms (mobile, xbox etc.) there is still the possibility that a player will have an issue specific to their platform, therefore if someone needs support they will navigate to the forum for their device. For example, if you are playing on Xbox One, you will navigate to the Support > Minecraft Xbox One Support forum. I will be removing "Edition" from the current support forum names to make this more clear.

    Does MCPE still exist as a separate product, different from how, for example, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition does - as an obsolete, but still playable game?


    Put another way, won't all of the active MCPE players, assuming they keep their game updated, be on the "Minecraft"/Better Together version from now on? If I play Minecraft on a mobile device, which is the correct forum to use, MCPE only if I didn't accept the update, and "Minecraft" otherwise?


    It's very possible I misunderstand how all the versions shook out with the BT update...


    My understanding is that all mobile copies of Minecraft: Pocket Edition will update to the new Minecraft assuming players do not choose to block the update. However, I am not completely clear on whether or not this will prevent people from accessing the old Pocket Edition game, therefore at this time, I am leaving the Pocket Edition forum in place because it is a significant part of the forum. If it becomes clear that the old Pocket Edition is no longer used by many players because everybody chooses to update their game, meaning activity in that forum category shrinks substantially, then the Pocket Edition forum will be moved down into the Editions category with the other Editions. Sorry, I don't have a more concrete answer!

    Following the launch of the new consolidated Minecraft game (also known as the Better Together Update), we have restructured the Minecraft Forum categories to better reflect the various versions of Minecraft. Mojang have officially designated non-Minecraft versions of the game as "Editions", for example, "Minecraft: Java Edition", and "Minecraft: Xbox One Edition". You can learn more about this change to Minecraft in this article. This forum structure update clarifies which category applies to which version of the game.


    1. Minecraft Discussion has been renamed to Minecraft: Java Edition.

    2. Servers has been renamed to Servers: Java Edition.

    3. Mapping and Modding has been renamed to Mapping and Modding: Java Edition.

    4. A new category, Minecraft: Editions, has been created. This category contains a forum for each Edition of Minecraft, except for Minecraft: Java Edition and Minecraft: Pocket Edition which continue to have their own categories due to their popularity.

    5. Each Minecraft: Edition forum has been consolidated, instead of separate "Suggestions", "Recent Updates" and "Discussion" forums there is now a single "Discussion" forum for each edition where members can discuss all aspects of the game; current, future and ideas. Additionally, each Edition category contains a Multiplayer forum.


    These changes should not have an impact on the way most members use the forum, however if you are not sure where you should post please take a look at the following information:


    If you would like to discuss Minecraft: Java Edition, visit the first forum category, Minecraft: Java Edition.

    If you would like to discuss the new Minecraft game, which is cross-platform and available on Xbox One, Windows 10, VR, Mobile and soon Nintendo Switch, visit the Minecraft category.

    If you would like to discuss the old editions of Minecraft, such as the Xbox 360 Edition, or the Playstation 4 Edition, visit the Minecraft: Editions forum.


    Please use this thread to share any questions you have about this change, or send me a Private Message. Thank you for your understanding :snowgolem: by Tulaash


    This announcement will be removed on December 31st 2017.

    posted a message on Anywhere to find news?

    You can also keep an eye on the Minecraft Forum homepage. Any time there is major news about the game, such as the launch of Minecraft: 3DS Edition, we will post an article, and every Saturday there is a post that covers everything that happened during the week, including minor news.


    Alternatively, if you wish to have the news as fast as possible, as Herb_ said, following Minecraft.net and the developers on Twitter is the best strategy. The Minecraft Forum twitter account has a list of all the Minecraft developers/employees who tweet relevant information which you can follow: https://twitter.com/minecraftforum/lists/minecraft-developers

    posted a message on Where can you watch Minecon Earth?

    Minecraft regularly stream on Twitch and Mixer, and although as far as I know there has not been any official confirmation around where the stream will be available, it's almost certain that it will be available on the twitch.tv/minecraft and mixer.com/minecraft channels, as previous Minecon streams have taken place on Twitch. They may also stream on YouTube.

    Thank you for providing more information, based on information from the advertisement team I think that this is an issue at our end and not yours. To help us identify what the cause of this is could you let me know what browser you use and what (if any) browser extensions you have installed that are designed to interfere with adverts? For example AdBlock, uBlock, AdBlock Plus etc.

    posted a message on Ad Placement in Reply Box

    This should not happen, when this occurs it's usually because of malware on your computer that is injecting advertisements into the websites you're visiting. This malware could be computer wide, or specific to your browser. The best way to identify if there is malware in your browser extensions is to disable them one by one and see if the advert disappears. If the adverts continue to show even after turning off all of your browser extensions and scanning your computer please let me know and I'll get in touch with our advertisement team to identify if it is coming from our system.
