Hardcore mode sounds awesome, experience orbs = score not so much... gaining arbitrary numbers for your accomplishments lost its appeal way back in the time of Pac-man, but whatever, won't stop me from enjoying the game.
i think that it should reset the world so all of your stuff is gone but it's the same seed so you don't have to go through the trouble of having to type in a really long seed again. For all those that think you'll lose your account and are serious, can't you try to learn what a joke is? i personally wouldn't us hardcore mode (but i'm a wimp and don't go outside if there's a creeper within 20 blocks of my house). I think the score is how many times you filled the xp bar but, remember that picture of stats in the inventory, you can probably level up stats like running speed and mining speed. Whatever it is is sure to be epic :^D
GO MOJANG WHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

I made it. Take a look. actually pmc took it down and gave me no reason as to why. if you do know why please pm me with the answer.
Ah, finally a built-in one-try mode for Minecraft. Up til` now, I've been doing my own version of this, which I call 'Difficult World', the title makes it sound easier than it is. I look forward to to the release of hardcore mode.
Also I would like to suggest other ways to make it harder, for hardcore that is.
Miner incapable of swimming unless you sacrifice a bunch of monster loot,
"soft hands" not able to break stone with hands, and get hurt from breaking wood without tools
high possibility of breaking misused tools
crafting skill incapable of making "upgraded tools" until you have made a certain number of lower level tools
at which point there is a chance of learning how to make better tools
And I support "onbonn", you should not be able to change the difficulty in-game.
This seemed like the right place to support and suggest.
One more thing, who does this text editor think it is? Minecraft it totally a real word.
