    posted a message on Hot take: Minecraft is unironically boring and needs an actual game you can progress through

    My 2 cents regarding this discussion.


    I agree with drkpandalord». I believe, however, that there is a core reason why so many people, myself included, find minecraft terribly boring after a short while. The lack of CHALLENGE.


    Game progression is too quick to a point in which you dont have to sweat or even take any kind of care to kill mobs, obtain resources (Fortune III, anyone?) or do nearly anything. Yes, the game has a lot of options to build and keep entertained - but many players demand CHALLENGE, and wont be satisfied with that if everything is too easy. The game fails in the aspect of not providing challenges worthy of a more advanced player, with advanced combat techniques and top-tier equipment/enchantments.


    This is exactly what makes mod packs so compelling (at least for the Java Edition). You can find mod packs that add additional advanced content with bigger challenges, with some mod packs being so brutal and unforgiving that would challenge even the most seasoned Minecraft players.

    For the Java edition of Minecraft, you could try using a mod like the NoCreativeDrift mod to disable that creative mode drift effect.

Please post each separate idea in its own thread so that people aren't confused about which idea is being discussed.

    posted a message on post discuses random and or crazy Minecreaft ideas that would be cool to see in a future update

    People with suggestions for Minecraft can post their ideas in their own threads -- we don't need a separate thread for this. Since your thread appears to be related to a mod, I am moving this thread to the requests/ideas for mods section.

    When posting suggestion threads, you are only permitted to include one idea (or closely-related group of ideas) per thread, and you are required to include the information directly in the thread (not linking to an external site). This thread does not contain a suggestion, but merely links to a wish list on an external site, both of which are not allowed for this section.

    Quote from TheMasterCaver»

    Unfortunately, the moderators clearly do not care about the site, else they would have implemented proper measures to deal with them (like automatically flag any post with a forbidden link as spam, and strengthen the filter to make it harder to circumvent, as the last poster did), but they have instead allowed them to destroy what is left of this place.





    Yeah, unfortunately, the spam issue is possibly much bigger than you might be aware. If it hasn't been mentioned previously, the video spam issue started when some big YouTuber posted a video back in late 2020 about how to make money posting spam on Internet forums -- and they included a detailed example of posting on the Minecraft forum. We were blindsided by the amount of spam that we suddenly started seeing. The forum anti-spam software is slowly improving on detecting and hiding that spam, but we still do see some slip through -- I would bet less than a few percent are visible by the regular forum users.


    In the first year of that video being on YouTube, the forum was visited by more than 500,000 new spam-posting users -- that averages at more than 1300 per day for that period. We are now down to an average of about 600-700 new spam users joining per day, and what the forum software doesn't hide with its spam filter functionality, it at least censors most of the spam links using other functionality. We can't really make those posts with censored links be hidden automatically simply because we are now down to roughly 10 forum staff that assist with this forum, and I am not sure we have the time or programming expertise to dig through the forum software and add that functionality. Since we are no longer part of Curse, we can't rely on their software development team to assist with that. Basically, in a nutshell, we are trying to do everything that we can do to solve this giant spam issue, but we are severely limited in what we can realistically do.

    posted a message on I changed my Minecraft username yesterday, can I get it back in 7 days?

    As far as I know, you still need to wait 30 days before you can change it back, however nobody can steal your old username until 37 days has passed, so you have 7 days after the 30-day waiting period to get your old username back.

    People aren't allowed to post claims related to Herobrine (or any other creepypasta) on these forums, since it causes problems and isn't really of any value to the forum users.

    You can ask people their general opinion about this server idea, but if you want to recruit for players, you will need to post a thread in the PC Servers forum section. We won't allow people to post applications to join a server in this thread, but they are free to post their thoughts about your idea.

    Moderators, can we close this topic already?


    We generally don't close suggestion threads unless they are violating one of the forum rules. Even though this suggestion has very little chance of ever being implemented by Mojang, it is still a valid suggestion (although maybe a bit light on the details).

    posted a message on My house takes fire...

    Your chests shouldn't have burned, since as far as I know, Minecraft chests are fire and lava proof. If your chests are gone, then either someone manually broke them or they blew up from a creeper or TNT.

    I have restored your post. The spam filter can sometimes be a bit overzealous for new users.
