I used to be apart of the Bungie.net forums (Creators of Halo) and I remember seeing people, just like you guys, dedicate their hearts out to an idea, some even worth it, and of course others not. But nonetheless seeing you guys make so many ideas, take hours to type something up/photoshop something, and it all comes out as a waste, I actually feel bad for you guys. Bungie never even looked at many peoples suggestions. :/
I personally think that there should be a community ambassador, or a group of them. They could report some of the better ideas to Mojang, and could create "official" threads about bigger topics like airships, farmcraft, and what not.
Yeah, I had this same question too. It really kind of frustrates me. The only real way to get him to look at these ideas is through twitter or IRC. But I still think the best way to brainstorm and perfect ideas is these forums, so I created this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=150314
Please check it out.

Check out the Community Empowerment Project, post your mob ideas here:
That's why he hired staff and as he said, almost everyday they have a meeting of ideas, etc. He said (his blog) that he will add many, many more fun items instead of doing all those boring stuff like fixing stuff (his staff will do that) but he said he'll be more focused on adding fun stuff.
Whereas his 'last visited' time, I'm sure he's part of the Hidden Users.
Why woul Notch be a hidden user? Mojang should ***** out the fact that they listen to the community, and it would generate interest and more traffic on the forums when people freak out when they see Notch view a topic.
Well, I'd like to know if any single person has read and actively considered every single post in this forum (never mind the rest)? And if you don't have time to do it, what makes you think Notch does?
You all underestimate the power of Notch and a company at his disposal to come up with cool ideas to implement in Minecraft. The lack of content updates are not due to Notch simply "being lazy" or not being creative enough. Recently they've acquired some space and set up shop. They're still getting the infrastructure of Mojang -- an actual company, something that momentarily more important than Minecraft itself.
Once everything is operating smoothly I can assure you the amount of content falling out of Notch's ass will be impeccable.
If it's not then I'll march on his new headquarters with a torch and pitchfork myself.
