Ok This is DEFINITELY a joke. I mean, Dinnerbone put in the changes to the forum
"I will be retiring from MCF to pursue my lifelong dream of being a mime.
Any user caught typing the word "bacon" will have their avatar changed to a pretty princess, and their user name changed to match.
Private messaging and Search will be disabled on April 14th due to low usage."
And at the end
"We know these exciting new changes will make life better for everyone here on the official Minecraft Forum! Since we will no longer have a "Contact Forum Administration" section, feel free to leave any and all suggestions you have for the new and improved Minecraft Forum in the comments below!"
Nice one Mojang! You really had a lot of people under belief. And to the Mindcrack people! Very well played.
Of course It's April Fools. Look up the MC wiki. It doesn't say anything about it. If for some ungodly Reason it is True. Then That would be awesome
[Edit] If you look up the Easter Egg Section of the Minecraft Wiki it shows that Minecraft 2.0 is a April Fools joke
