    Quote from Arithmos

    Listen. I can kill a zombie with my fists. I don't need to craft a diamond sword to do it. That is the charm of this game.

    But with experience points will you be forced to go grind mobs or whatever just to level up so that you are strong enough to kill some mobs or to mine some dirt faster? That is lame sauce to the max. It is not creative at all. It is borrowing something that has existed for decades.

    Are you forced to tame wolves? Are you forced to create wheat farms? Are you forced to fight creepers? When has this game ever forced you to do anything?

    If the system turns out to be anything like that, which I sincerely doubt that it will, you will either want to be better or you won't. You won't be forced into anything. If the game does force you into anything, contact a medical professional.

    I'll just leave this here: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Adventure_Mode

    P.S: I know that jeb said 1.8 won't be the Adventure Mode, but the Mode is still confirmed to be added.

    did you by any chance look at the actual citations on that page? The only indication of adventure mode with any recentness at all is over a year old, and so much has changed since then. Adventure Mode is far from confirmed.

    Unless you've tested it yourself or seen it yourself, don't trust the Wiki.

    I think its good, because if you read about updates, you would know that the survival will exist, as long as adventure and creative.
    Maybe you can make blocks in adventure too...
    We will see.

    Creative will exist, and Minecraft will exist. Everything else is speculation.

    As are experience points. We don't know what that bar was, and we don't even know if it will make it into the game.

    We don't know anything, about anything yet. You can think it is a bad idea after you know what the idea is.

    I feel sorry for Jefe with each of these threads that pop up. How hard is it to read and follow the rules? Use the search bar, even.

    It's an old meme, a sort of twist on a spoonerism version of the phrase.

    posted a message on Spiders have Magical Powers
    Quote from punchin

    As far as fixing it, there's nothing to fix.

    You're right about that. Mobs are supposed to be mean and annoying. It's their job.

    Spiders have magical powers. What do they mean?

    Nothing. They're just there to scare the **** out of you.

    It's naught to do with nerfing spawn rooms or anything else. He gave them the power to see through walls to make them more dangerous, they're more dangerous. He succeeded. Woohoo! It's screwing with an unrelated exploit? Exploit better! If you've got the weight of a server on your shoulders, I'm sure you can manage it.

    Quote from SomeAwesomeGuy

    I don't understand why so many people like that seed.
    tbh I think most seeds are better.
    Is there something awesome I missed?

    Posting on topic, for starters.

    If you head North from the spawn point, past the forests and the mountains, you'll find a tundra.

    Quote from Mariorock09

    How am i a troll? Explain before you post.

    He may be more talking about the original poster and not some random guy replying.

    Speaking of which. WHY ARE YOU REPLYING? He is clearly just trying to get a rise out of you. You reply, he wins.

    Go read the Cask of Amontillado by Poe. It is the best explanation of the Internet ever written.

    posted a message on pistons and slabs
    Yeah, people were mostly just being dicks in the dog thread this guy made, but I can't figure this out either. I think he wants to be able to use pistons to choose which half of a full block a half block occupies.

    posted a message on Beta 1.8 Discoveries
    Quote from Ovus

    Name a game that has "experience points" or "experience orbs" that aren't used to boost a tally.

    Mortal Kombat - Shaolin Monks. There were only a certain number in the game at specific points and they unlocked a specific ability that was needed as it was needed, which is an interpretation which can be taken from the very, very, little that has been said on the subject.

    You fight the monster in the dungeon, pick up a single Experience Orb and then you can use a sword better or differently before. No tally system, no redundancies and nothing more than a substantial reward for a substantial achievement.

    However, more than all that. Minecraft has consistently avoided being like other games, so examples of other games aren't that useful.

    He's not being witty, he's having a conversation.

    Tone down the disrespectful and inappropriate comments. The unrelated quote is; Yeah, there were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident.

    posted a message on I just saw a splash that said something interesting...
    I apologize, I was wrong.

    Either the O.P is lying or he has a mod. There is no splash containing that text in the current nor any past Minecraft jars.

    In regards to the splashes never meaning anything. They are all either references to popular culture or to internet culture. They have never had any meaning beyond that.
