i agree with duhderp, and to add to it, without being mean or anything, the chances that you found something new in minecraft no one at all has seen is pretty low, the likelihood is what you have discovered is known already somewhere, though it would be nice if new things are there to be discovered
I care about credit. I'm not trying to monetize it. This is new. I've scoured al the forums and youtube for this. As far as I know, this is new. It's nothing game-breaking, just kind of novel. I want credit where credit's due.
I see youtube videos with, "This thing discovered by this player."
I don't know anything about the minecraft community, so I don't know how people give credit to players for their discoveries.
Would starting a new thread here be adequate? Do i just have to make a youtube video myself, and post it places to get the word out?
These are the questions i want answers for, please. Stop trying to talk me out of it.
Make a thread, post a video, make your own website and post it there, there is no official way to post what you have found, as for others stealing what you post, there isn't really a way to stop it as with anything online, but if you really wanted and someone does take your idea and claim it is theirs you could attempt legal copyright/plagiarism proceedings, but that will cost you alot.
I wasn't trying to talk you out of it, just being a realist about it.
This information is helpful. I wouldn't bother with doing anything to get the law involved. I just haven't a clue about how any of this works.
It's seems people get their names dropped in videos for their discoveries or ideas and I wanted to know if there was a mechanism for that. Like, if people prefer to use YouTube, or this site, or reddit, or some other platform that I may not have heard of.
It just seems to be the "Honor System" among players.
