I've had enough of this. Has anyone else noticed how people have been buzzing around like flies saying "BRING MINECON 2013 TO <country name here>"? Seriously, Mojang chooses where minecon 2013 should be. It's very annoying seeing people whining for minecon to be somewhere ridiculous, like their unheard-of hometown or their backyard. The people who actually want minecon 2013 to be in a well-known city are all just suggesting it to be near somewhere minecon has already been, such as some American city or London.
The threads that have been made to vote for minecon 2013's location are just centered around bringing it to America or Europe again. I've seen two threads that originally or STILL ARE suggesting to bring minecon to America AGAIN. The logic I've seen in people is so stupid. It goes like this:
Yeah, my home country America is SOOOO awesome it deserves to have minecon again! All those countries like Australia and China are so poor and swarming with diseases, so America will have minecon again because it's so awesome!
The people with the quoted logic are usually children with absolutely no knowledge of any other countries economy. Besides, if minecon was brought to Europe or America again I would be willing to bet a large sum of money that some American kid is going to start a topic saying "Bring minecon 2014 to America!" and the whole process will repeat itself. Calling me a liar? I have examples. These go to show how people want minecon near or at where they live and how selfishly they are thinking.
Now I know that someone might say how I'm singling out Americans, but it's everyone who is doing this. The problem is that 99% of the people suggesting the location for minecon 2013 are suggesting the country that they live in. There's no point of listening to a community suggesting like that so Mojang is definitely choosing where the next minecon is for themselves.
Please, I myself am not suggesting where minecon should be (Anymore at least) and I beg for everyone else to do the same. Suggesting a country that isn't yours? Good for you! An unselfish act. Suggesting that it should be America AGAIN just because you live in America and you think it is so grand and mighty? Stop living in your dream world. I know there are people who are saying "But I can't go to minecon if it's not in America/Europe!" well tough luck. Should've saved up at the time and went. Just because you didn't go doesn't mean that minecon should come to your country all over again.
Now, Mojang will pick at random a country that hasn't had minecon before, so they don't look racial at all. Stop trying to make America have minecon again just so you can go or show America off in front of the world, you'll never get minecon there.
Now, just to clear things up. NO flaming or whining about minecon. No yogscast debating, no racist posts on how you think your country is better than others, just simple agreement/disagreement. That's all I ask for. No immature posts saying "IN MY BACKYARD IN AMERICA PLZPLZPLZ". Besides, this thread isn't for suggesting locations. DO NOT SAY "You lost your temper over 2 threads?" because I'm not angry, just tired of people wanting minecon to be in the same country twice when it will never be. You can't maturely justify minecon being in the same country twice with iron-hard supporting points (Don't even try).
