Hello, why do people keep their minecraft seeds private. Is it because people can use their seed on their minecraft server and steal it?
Most of the minecraft servers have /seed disabled (Including my server), I have never gave my seed out to anyone because they could just steal the seed.
Is this the real reason why they keep it private.
They keep the seed private as then you could go into singleplayer with the same seed and find all the ores and structures without any penalties or playing on the server itself.
Get my 1.10.2 modpack :D, Quae Machinis (Machines and Things)
Have a nice day!

Yeah, you could just start your own game with that seed, and use a cheat to locate all the diamonds and structures.
