    posted a message on Increased RATE of gunpowder mob trap?
    this works, but an even easier way is jsut to seed your inventory, fill each slot in your inventory with 1 gunpowder then use a regular mob trap, it wastes items, but you obviously dont want the other ones, and you can do this with any of the items so you get what you want too =)

    posted a message on How do YOU play?
    To be honest I play on Peaceful, I mine and mine and mine and amass massive amounts of coal, Iron, Cobble and Redstone along with a respectable amount of diamonds, all in preparation of some vast project which is not yet even forming in the depths of my mind, but one day i'll either use all those resources or just trash the save and start from the beginning all over again.

    posted a message on Minecraft short fan-fic
    not gonna lie, it was rather unimpressive, it was too Wall'o'Texty for me to finish the entire thing, and after half of the story, i just started skimming. There appeared to be alot of Typos which any aspiring story writer should eradicate in a simple 5 minute proofread, and there wasnt alot that went into the story after the first few entries, it basically became : "did what any normal minecraft player did today, Plan on doing the same tomorrow" honestly, the best way to get a well written and interesting story is to add pictures of your experiences, have a specific scenario in mind about what you want to do with the story and the world, and just be alot more descriptive with your stories and each entry, make them longer and try to fix the flow, add a good beginning to each day and a good end to each night

    posted a message on Any idea why these won't grow?
    actually, trees dont need any area around them to grow, they require only 4 blocks above the block the sapling occupies to grow, this has been proven by extensive testing by multiple parties, you only need vertical area to grow the trees, the rest is just due to how much time you give the trees, can be 1 MC day, could be 30, you just never know with some of the wierder things weve found in MC, but really all you need is 4 open blocks above your sapling and the tree will grow, even in a 1x1 pit, as longa as it has vertical room, of course no one has proven they grow faster with/without the horizontal area around them, so its always best to be sure, but always have open room above your trees

    Ingame name: (kernath95)
    Playing for: Since the very beginning and ive been with notch all the way
    Position: Collector
    Why i should be a Collector: While other people find mining to be boring, i enjoy Long, Methodical Strip mining and im sure i could add lots of simple materials as well as Diamond, redstone, and iron to your Communities Stores
    Comments: I can put in decent amounts of time with you guys every weekday but wednesday, and working with a large group of experienced people on a project that has been given a large level of freedom sounds like it would be alot of fun

    just sayin, if you wanted, you could just leave the engine minecart at your spawn with a chest full of coal, its not an amazing idea of ingenuity and long equations and thinking, but it seems like the easiest thing to do... and sometimes thats the best.

    posted a message on Better weapons than Bow and Arrow, Sword?
    grenades could be said to have been used pretty much since the chinese empire when they started using fireworks, just basic containers with gunpowder that explode, whether to intimidate an enemy or to actually cause harm.

    if you dont want to continue the flame war, dont use expletives or post anything that sounds angry, if only one person is flaming in a thread, they'll get bored and go away, or realise theyre unwelcome in what is a truly constructive thread, just sayin that alot more can get done in a thread if people post their opinions calmly and without using the word dumbass atleast 5 times in every post.

    I havent really read all of the flame that happened from page 5-8, but im just posting my own opinion, i aint callin anyone a dumbass, and youre free to keep your own opinion, i ask before you read this that you dont call me a dumb ass for holding my own opinion about this product. However, i am 100% satisfied with Notch as of right now. He has a legitimate excuse to not be putting out these updates right now, because when he does get this company up and running, he could potentially be putting out the updates people on the "want more updates notch has no excuses" side of the argument want, he could put out updates with as much content as the early friday updates every day with a team of programmers working with him, and if you want to quit minecraft now, and get your money back, then thats your choice, but with patience, you'll be getting an even better experience with minecraft than you had before Notch started having these problems with the servers and the demands placed on him with having to write ever more complex updates every week. with a little patience, you'll get what you want tenfold, and we can put all this behind us.

    to be honest, im not sure if i like that cobblestone and smooth stone checkerboard look... i know its your project but to be honest it looks bad, atleast from the pictures youve shown so far, idk if it looks better at different times of the day and from different angles, but is there anything you intend on doing to that? aside from that, im truly amazed by all the time and hard work you must be putting into this project, and i tip my hat to you sir
