    posted a message on Why did Minecraft Forum merge with Twitch?

    We haven't been merged into Twitch, rather, we have replaced one authentication system (Curse Auth) with another (Twitch Auth) because Curse Auth no longer exists.


    For full context: I created the Minecraft Forum (and Minecraft Wiki) independently in 2009, around the time that Minecraft first became available because Notch didn't want to run a forum. Eventually Minecraft became very, very popular and so a company called Curse approached us asking if they could acquire the forum (and wiki), so we sold the forum (and wiki) to Curse. After the acquisition the Minecraft Forum login system was replaced with the Curse Auth system, so to log in to the Minecraft Forum you had to use a Curse account and you could use the same account to log in to other websites, like the Minecraft Wiki. Then in 2016 Curse was acquired by Twitch, and the process of sunsetting Curse Auth began, which meant migrating all Curse websites (which includes this forum) away from Curse Auth and onto Twitch Auth.

    posted a message on So now i must login with twitch, and my minecraft password is disabled?

    Minecraft and the Minecraft Forum are not related.


    To log in to the Minecraft game you need to have a Mojang account.


    To log in to the Minecraft Forum you must have a Twitch account.


    Can you clarify: are you having problems with Minecraft the game, or this forum?

    Vanilla is a phrase used to mean "not modified", or "as default". So, "Vanilla Minecraft" means Minecraft without modifications, as it is if you downloaded the game brand-new from the website (or app store). That said the term is a little murky, sometimes people may use Vanilla to mean Minecraft without modifications that impact gameplay, but does have some other modifications.

    I believe the correct terminology for something available on the Minecraft Marketplace is an "item" which is a piece of "content". Mojang have a team responsible for the Marketplace, called the "Content Team", and when you look at something listed on the Marketplace it says "Get This Item".


    I believe, although I'm not completely clear on this, Marketplace content can be an add-on but an add-on is not always marketplace content. Add-ons can be created by anybody and shared on forums like this one for others to download (you can see the Add-on FAQ here) but only approved creators are able to sell items on the Minecraft marketplace -- which may or may not be add-ons.

    I completely agree that the inconsistent use of terms is confusing. As a forum we have tried our best to be consistent, for example when the Better Together update launched it came with a rename of the game (to "Minecraft" for the Better Together platforms, and "Minecraft: Java Edition" for the original game) so we followed the new naming scheme religiously which is why you can now see a "Minecraft" category (which is for Better Together platforms) and a "Minecraft: Java Edition" category (which is for what was originally called Minecraft).


    Unfortunately, Mojang themselves find their own naming scheme confusing and are using it inconsistently. For example, numerous Mojang and Microsoft employees have started referring to Minecraft as "Better Together" or "Bedrock (Edition)" which is not the official name. Language evolves, even in the world of corporate products, and we have no problem evolving along with it, unfortunately as a forum it's very difficult to just change our forum names without breaking existing links, so we're married to our decisions.


    There is both a Minecraft Store, where you can buy the game, and a Minecraft Marketplace, where you can get additional content for the game. You can learn more about the marketplace here: https://minecraft.net/en-us/article/marketplace-online


    The Add-ons forum I provided a link to is about Minecraft (Better Together) Add-ons (often available through the Minecraft Marketplace). The Java Edition of the game has its own forum for content (essentially add-ons) called Mapping and Modding, which can be found here: https://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding-java-edition

    Discussion is a place where you can discuss the game. Support is a place where you can seek (and give) support with the game. For example, if you can't load the game because you receive an error message when clicking on the launcher, then you're looking for support. If you want to tell people about a great idea you have, then you're looking to discuss -- and more specifically, discuss a suggestion.


    What type of non-vanilla Minecraft products do you mean? As ConArt70 says we do have an Add-ons forum, which is for content bought through the Minecraft Marketplace, which you can find here: https://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/minecraft/add-ons :)

    posted a message on How can I tell if my Curse account is merged with my Twitch account?

    Hi!


    This notice is to inform you that after July 30th you will no longer be able to log in to an account that has not been merged with a Twitch account. This notice has been shown to all users because some users have multiple accounts, and they may only use their Twitch merged account regularly but do not want to lose their unmerged account.


    Seeing this notice does not mean you are not merged. Your account is merged, and you can confirm this with the following steps:


    1. Visit My Account, which can be found in the user menu drop down at the top right of all Minecraft Forum pages,

    2. If you see the Twitch logo and a "Manage Twitch Account" button then your account is merged and you do not need to do anything


    For 99% of users no action is necessary and the notice can be safely ignored.


    Please let me know if you need any further information :) I'm sorry that the messaging around this is a little confusing, unfortunately we have to inform all users (even those who are merged) because many people have many accounts.

    posted a message on Seriously unexpected cross domain fetch when looking at my list of subscribed threads.

    Curse has implemented a system for requesting consent for marketing and tracking, this system uses the URL you're seeing in your console to provide information on the different purposes of tracking, and get a list of the various third party services. This is completely safe, not something to worry about :)


    If you're using privacy and ad blocking plugins you may not have seen the prompt to consent to tracking, try visiting the forum in incognito mode to see it, it's the big purple banner at the bottom of the page. If you click "Learn More" below the "Got It, Thanks!" button you can then choose from various options, and next to earn option click "Learn More" to see the per-third party break down which is sourced from the URL you've seen.


    Let me know if you need any further information.

    Thanks, that did work, but just for unread. How do I check old messages?


    At this time, unless you have a direct link -- which can be found via email notifications if you receive them -- you cannot access old Private Messages if you're experiencing this bug, as there is no known workaround. I'm sorry for the inconvenience :(

    posted a message on An update to the Minecraft Forum category structure

    I was originally very committed to the idea of following Mojang's naming scheme, as webrosc mentioned, but given even Mojang themselves are now using the "Bedrock" language I'm starting to think maybe we should too, because the current name scheme is so confusing. This is 100% my fault, as a number of staff members felt that we should use Bedrock in the name, but I was committed to ensuring parity with Mojang... not realising that if we were finding referring to the game to be difficult, Mojang would be too.

    I'm sorry for the inconvenience, I've made a note of the issue for the development team to address but I can't provide an ETA of when this will be fixed. Please let me know if you find any further issues. As a temporary work around you can visit the search page directly, it's minecraftforum.net/search.

    posted a message on How do I get a GIF as an avatar?

    You can upload an animated gif as long as it is at most 100px x 100px, any larger and the system will try and resize it and the animation will be lost. There are websites that will resize a gif for you if it's more than 100 x 100. The process for animating avatars can take a few seconds, so after you've uploaded please wait ~60 seconds to determine if the animation works or not.

    Apologies for the delay, the dev team are aware of this issue, among others, caused by an upgrade to the version of jquery we use which has surfaced a number of compatibilities. I'm not sure of an ETA at this time, but the issue is being addressed, ideally we'll have them resolved by next week but it may take longer. Sorry for the inconvenience in the mean time.
