    Well, Microsoft has bought Mojang. It's done. I suspect this will change much of the current situation with requests for specific things from the community. I hope that Microsoft will bring in more people to help the current developers, and we'll probably see more requests from the community being granted. I hope this will speed up the amount of updates to the game. Maybe, they might even decide to start working on Cubic Chunks.

    Please do not insult other people like that. There's no point in it, and if you've pointed out a mistake they've made, they're probably chiding themselves well enough without your help.

    It's also against the rules.

    Can't beleive mojang does not want to implement this.

    I don't think they don't want to add it. I think they just consider it too hard to code. It will be hard to implement, but it will be worth it.

    Well, I generally see little reason to be polite to people who won't return the favor.
    A failing of mine yes.

    I can understand why you have little patience for people you consider idiots. I want to say things like you say, and then I think about how stupid the person I'm dealing with must be, and I just pity them. I want to be an example, you see.

    posted a message on Semi-Automatic Weapons: A Poll
    Quote from O4343

    To be honest, the ban on semi-automatic weapons is secondary in my prioties list regarding firearms. Repealing the 2nd is first in my playbook. Eliminate it, and I'd no longer push for a ban on semi-autos, and if one had been established, I'd consider pushing for its elimination. Repeal the 2nd, and not every American will be able to get a firearm: Only those properly trained, without criminal backgrounds, and with a clean bill of mental health would get guns, if I had my way. In that case, I'd feel infinitely more confident in gun owners' ability to be responsible and safe members of society, and as such, I'd be more willing to see them with a more varied arsenal.

    I wouldn't die for such a ban, but I would be willing to sacrifice a lot for a repeal of the 2nd.

    I see no reason to die for such a right. So what if you lost the right? Then you'd just have to jump through a few more hoops for your firearms. It's not like you'd lose them completely, unless you were a danger to society as a result of your ownership, which is unlikely.

    That might be how it worked back in the 1700s, but a lot has changed. The government, when it works (and it works most of the time), will protect your freedom. The police, the military, your elected congressmen are all there (ostensibly) to serve the American people, and to protect those freedoms on your behalf. As long as we do our part as citizens, and exercise our freedoms of speech, assembly, and press, and exercise our right to vote in every election, then we can continue to defend our rights as Americans from all that opposes it. A gun is no longer necessary (or useful) for doing the same.

    You're delusional, if you think guns are the only defense people have. Also, you're selling Americans short, and as a patriot, I find that insulting.

    Pretty sure that's close-mindedness. There are no absolute facts; just facts supported by evidence. You've got belief, and I can't cede to such belief.

    I won't die for my reasoning, no. If you'll die for your belief, you're no different from a religious radical; a fool who has no understanding of the value of a human life, and cannot see reason when it stands right in front of them.

    I would not kill you over your 'right' to bear arms; a human life is worth more than such a petty 'right'. I would not, however, object if someone else killed you over it.

    There is no reason for violence on this matter. This is not the beginning of some Nazi regime, or the end of America; it's simply a change to the Constitution, a change long overdue. After all is said and done, you'll most likely still have your guns, and I still won't have a single one. Nothing much will change for regular, law-abiding Americans; what will change will be a minority of people will no longer have guns, and no longer be able to have them, and the majority will be better off as a result.

    You said; "There are no absolute facts; just facts supported by evidence." That's a self-defeating argument. It's like saying, "This sentence does not exist." I mean, really? Did you really just do that?

    I do not understand what you mean when you say I'm "Selling Americans short." Would you please explain this to me? I find your entire mindset insulting, but I won't complain about it.

    You said; "The government, when it works (and it works most of the time), will protect your freedom." I cannot believe that. Have you ever seen this picture? Or this one? The first terrible event was courtesy of F.D.R., I would like to point out.

    I'm not delusional. I'm trying to not stoop to name calling, and I ask that you do the same. I'm not saying guns are the only defense people have.
    I'm saying they are the ultimate defense. They are the last, most effective resort.

    Thomas Jefferson said; "The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it." I feel like like this is relevant to this discussion.

    The Second Amendment will never be repealed as long as there are people like who are willing to die and to kill to defend it.

    posted a message on Semi-Automatic Weapons: A Poll
    Is your belief that semi-automatic firearms, (or any other type of firearm available to the general public,) should be banned from possession by the general public? And if so, (and more importantly,) do you believe this is worth dying for?

    Because I believe that protecting one's right to possess firearms is worth dying for. And I believe it necessitates committing the most horrible act of killing another human being to defend this right, because this human being would take this right away from me.

    I understand that without a way to defend one's rights, (such as the freedom of speech, the right to privacy,) one never had those rights in the first place. You may say you have the right to say what you will, but you may only do so until someone tells you to shut up.

    Without a way to defend yourself against close-minded idiots like this, you are at their mercy, and your rights are nothing.

    I am far beyond the reach of any argument you could make against the idea that everyone has the right to arm themselves. (This is not close-mindedness, it's a belief in an absolute fact.)

    From your previous posts, you appear to be beyond any argument I could make for the idea that everyone has the right to arm themselves with semi-automatic weapons, so we are at an impasse.

    Are you willing to die to enforce your belief? Because I'm willing to die to preserve mine. And that is the core of the matter.

    When all is said and done, when there is no more desire to have open debate, when this worldwide argument reaches it's end, I would kill you to defend my belief in self-defense. Would you kill me to defend your belief? That is the core of this debate.

    They clarified and reinforced the original EULA. I hope it stays the way it is now.

    Quote from Cuchaz
    Mojang has known about this idea for a long time. I don't think "raising awareness" will accomplish anything useful here.

    You are completely wrong. "Raising awareness" is one of the most useful things we can do. As Avaruusmurkku said;

    Quote from Avaruusmurkku

    It would spread the awareness and thus make this thing more popular. The more people know about cubic chunks and their possibilities the better. Also the "want" pressure might make Mojang a bit more enthusiastic to implement this.

    We need people who can code the mod, (like you,) to have a proof-of-concept to raise awareness and get enough people to tell Mojang to implement it in the game. But you must understand it would be better for everyone if Mojang went ahead and did it themselves. (It's what they're being paid to do.)

    Quote from UltimateFanBoy
    Well, THAT was a mean way of putting it.

    It was a pessimistic way of putting it too.

    Could someone please explain exactly what needs to be done to get the "exclusive forum title" mentioned hereby Sacheverell.

    He says, "Every user that provides valuable feedback during the beta will be given anexclusive forum titleto use once the site is live!"

    What is "valuable feedback?" Is it limited to reporting a bug? Suggesting a new feature? Is it simply stating one's approval (or disaproval,) for the new layout? I would like to know.
