Jul 10, 2013Kitsune posted a message on What Do You Think Is The Most Annoying Aspect of Minecraft?Posted in: DiscussionQuote from TheArmsofPeace
Stop. Just stop. you're not helping anything, and he wants to know what people find annoying about it, not complain about it. (and yes, that is a form of complaining, but it's a reasonable form.)
On Topic: I think Combat is the most annoying. There really isn't much to combat in vanilla Minecraft, just click as fast as you can.
I actually agree. I didn't mean to imply that he was complaining, I understand that stating what you find annoying isn't quite complaining. I'm just talking about how quite a large amount of posts on these forums are complaints, and it really makes the browsing experience a lot less enjoyable.

why make one when you can just download one?
The entertainment comes from the process. Spending hours building something occupies a lot more time than just spending a few minutes exploring it.

If I believe in a religion in which I had to commit mass homicide, would you respect my beliefs?
That statement should only be applied to people who have beliefs that are even remotely plausible.
You say this, then you you say this:
Definitely no contradiction whatsoever.
Jul 9, 2013The actual premise of Pokemon is actually pretty cruel. When you think about it, you're basically forcing animals to fight against each other. And in real life, they probably would die instead of faint, considering how powerful they actually are. It's still a really fun game.Posted in: General Off Topic

Jun 17, 2013dlcoates1 posted a message on MCPE vs SC: Which is right for me? [Information thread] (No wars/debates)Posted in: MCPE: Discussion=====Contents======Intro==Gameplay Differences==Graphics Differences==Quality Differences==Main Gameplay Features==HUD/UI Differences==Priceing==Ratings==Demo Differences==Video Comparisons==Conclusion==TL;DR==Signature==FacePalm==Update=
Ok guys, there has been a lot of debate between MC:PE and Survivalcraft.I am creating this thread to hopefully stop the wars going on between the 2 games/apps.Now, everyone has their own opinions, so I want this to remain friendly and on topic.I don't want to hear anything like "Well MCPE is better" or "No Survivalcraft is the best and MCPE will never catch up".Again, everyone has their own opinions, so be respectful of everyone else.Gameplay DifferencesIf you prefer to dominate your land, and work with limited resources, then MCPE is for you.MCPE is more like the Classic version of minecraft with 256x256 sized world, however it does maintain most of the current MC blocks and items from the current version of minecraft for PC.When I say dominate your land, I mean creating a safe, mob free environment so you can safely wonder around.Minecraft Pocket Edtion, much like Minecraft PC and 360, is a fantasy type game. It contains mobs such as zombies, skeletons, giant spiders, and zombie pigmen, as well as the famous explosive creeper pal.Minecraft is often considered a midevil version of lego's because it is a world made of blocks, and most of the time you see buildings such as castles, dungeons, etc.You may also see some futuristic builds every now and then, but for the most part it is midevil builds.If you like to explore vast and endless worlds, swim with sharks, scale down caves, and like "Redstone", then you may enjoy Survivalcraft.Survival craft is much more like the PC version of Minecraft, with the endless worlds, texture pack support, and not to mention it has a great amount of depth to the overall gameplay.It has a crafting system similar to the PC version of minecraft where as MCPE uses the MATIS system which just contains a pick and choose menu.Survival craft contains blocks and items that you would normally see in some mods in minecraft such as LED's, electronic gates (XOR, AND, etc.), saltpeter, malachite, limestone, granite, basalt, etc.It has a more advanced crafting system where you must do some extra steps to make your items (This is what I mean by depth).Example in MCPE to make TNT you need 4 sand, and 5 gunpowder, gunpowder is premade and obtained by killing creepers. In Survivalcraft, to obtain TNT, you need to get coal, sulfer, and saltpeter. Combine 1 of each item to create gunpowder. 1 gunpowder + 2 wood planks will give you a small TNT barrel which is enough for a 3x3x3 area. 2 gunpowder + 4 wood planks gives you a medium TNT barrel which covers a 5x5x5 area, and 3 gunpowder + 6 wood planks gives you a large TNT barrel which covers about a 7x7x7 area. You must also use 1 sulfer + 1 wood stick to make a match to light the barrel. There is also the choice of using an electric detonation charge to instantly detonate the barrel.Survivalcraft has more of a realistic feel to it. The sun/moon/stars/clouds look great, and the default textures are not all that bad. While MCPE does beat the default textures in that aspect, you can always download and install new texture packs from in game with survivalcraft in the get content menu.
Minecraft Pocket Edition doesn't use much graphics memory and is therefore compatible with lower end devices. The overall graphics are not as energy consuming either, so minecraft pocket edition also beats survivalcraft in that aspect.With survivalcraft, there is several caves, the option to use HD graphics (MCPE has this option as well), and is more CPU intensive. While it plays fine on the iphone 4 and up, the ipad 1,2, and mini, and the ipod touch 4th gen+, it is not recommended for lower end devices. Because of many of the features such as caves, sun/moon/stars/realistic clouds, it can be slow at times, or on slower devices, can even freeze.While both games offer HD texture packs such as photorealism, only Survivalcraft has full support for the texture pack system, where as MCPE requires file editing.
Now, this is where the biggest debate kicks in with both games/apps.A lot of people tend to say MCPE has the best quality, while others say Survivalcraft is better.After months of gameplay on both games, comparison of all features, etc. and even talking with kaalus via wordpress PM system, I have come to the decision that both games are equal as far as quality. Both games have great aspects, and terrible downsides.One thing to remember is that both games are coded differently, and for MCPE, it is an even bigger coding difference from the PC version.A lot of people say that all mojang has to do is port the game, but this can't be farther from the truth. PC version of MC is coded in java, while the MCPE version is mainly C++ with a little Objective-C.MCPE does update rather slow, but you need to realize that they also have the 360 version, and the PC version to work on, and PC version is their main priority.Survivalcraft is mainly Objective-C with a bit of C++. Survivalcraft tends to go more towards the realistic look with player and animal modles, while MCPE retains the classic block shape.The PC version of MC has a huge team, and the PE version of MC has about 7 people.With survivalcraft, it is just the 1 guy, and the updates come out about the same speed as MCPE if not just a little faster.So overall, the quality of both games is the same, there is no difference in quality, just a difference in opinion.Main Gameplay FeaturesWith MCPE the main features are the same as PC version, with the exception of redstone, enchanting, potions, the end, the nether, and a couple other minor details. While it does have a nether replacement, it is not the true nether. MCPE also contains multiplayer, although as of this post, it is not fully up and functioning, and is currently limited.Survivalcrafts main features is the infinite worlds, caves, electronics systems, and in depth gameplay (video comparisons will be posted at the bottom of the post).Survivalcraft will have multiplayer eventually, but it is currently not the main priority on Kaalus's to do list.
The hud is probably one of the biggest things I see brought up all the time.People always say that in survivalcraft the hud gets in the way, or the controls are weired, etc.If you play Survivalcraft with the controls set to:Move control mode: PadLook Control Mode: EntireScreenFlip Vertical Axis: OffAuto Jump: OnThen the controls are the exact same as minecraft pocket edition. The only difference is the fact that you are using a pad rather than directional. If your having problems with the controls, use the settings that I stated above and you will have absolutely no problems.Another tip is to go into user interface and set the UI size to smallest. If you don't like the pads getting in your way for the controls, you can hide them through this menu as well.People also say MCPE has a better hud. While this can be arguable, the huds are no different from each other, except for the fact that Survivalcraft has a couple extra buttons. Now on a smaller screen it can tend to be a problem depending on what your doing, however from my point of view, as well as the people I have talked with, it is no problem at all a majority of the time.Another difference is with the Hotbar. When selecting items from your inventory in MCPE, the last item you selected will be the first item on your hotbar. Also, there is no way to organize your inventory unless you have access to a chest. With Survivalcraft, you can drag and drop items to your hotbar, and they will remain where you put them. You can also drag and drop your inventory to organize it, without having to access a chest.PricingThe current price for MCPE is $6.99, but if you love the PC version, you will get your moneys worth. It is a highly enjoyable game, with overall great quality. Again, while they updates may be slow, the wait is worth it.The current price for survivalcraft is $2.99, but you will not regret buying it. As stated above with MCPE, the same goes for survivalcraft.My recommendation however, is if you can afford both, then buy both. They are equally amazing games, and both are very afordable. If you have $10 to spend, then go with my recommendation.
MCPE is currently the #3 app in the app store for ios. I can't speak for android since I do not own one.It is currently rated 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. Again, the rating matches the overall great experience with the game.Survivalcraft is currently the #17 app in the app store for ios, once again, I can't speak for android. Unlike MCPE, survivalcraft is also available for window's phones, but I can't speak for them either since like android, I don't own one.The current raiting in for it is 4 stars out of 5, however, it recieves negative views from MCPE fans who claim it to be a clone and give it 1 star raitings and poor reviews. If you disregaurd these posts, survivalcraft actually stacks up the a 5 out of 5 star app/game. Again, it matches with the gameplay, overall quality, but mainly the depth of the game.
For MCPE, the demo is currently still on 0.2.X and has limited gameplay for survival, creative, and multiplayer.In survivalcraft, the demo is fully playable, is up to date, and is not limited at all. It does however have a time limit, but it gives you a long enough amount of time to get the overall feel of the game and the general experience of it.In both cases, you can not save worlds in the demo version.
Here you can see some videos about the differences in gameplay, the depth, etc.Farming:
MCPE: We already know what terrain generation is like on MCPE, so no need for a video there.
Water Mechanics and Details:
MCPE: This is something that MCPE doesn't have, or claims that cannot be done according to mojang.
More comparisons can be seen on their channels:
ConclusionBoth games are great in their own ways, and both games have their downsides.Whether it be price, depth of the gameplay, items, experience, features, etc. they are completely different games.They are both coded differently, by 2 different companies.One thing you must remember, is that any "Clone" of MCPE is either taken off of the app store, or the company is sued. Survivalcraft doesn't fall under the clone catagory because of the fact that it has a different feel, gameplay experience, etc to it.Now there is a lot of people that call Survivalcraft a clone of MCPE or MC in general. Now while MC is technically considered an original, it was not the first of it's type. Before MC, there was Roblox, before Roblox there was Lego's. Lego's practically invented the "Block" toy/game age.Another thing is, a lot of people who call Survivalcraft is a clone of MC, don't really know the truth behind MC.MC was an idea that originated off of a game called Infiniminer. Infiniminer originally got its idea from roblox and added the "mining" system to it. And again, roblox started off as an idea for a digital lego game.All in all, Survivalcraft is an idea, that originated from an idea, that originated from aother idea, that originated from an original idea, that originated from a real life toy.Confused? Let me shorten it for you.Survivalcraft isn't a clone, but it is an addition to the "Voxel Video Game" genre.
For those that think this post is too long and boring and didn't care to read, here is a simple list of pro's/con's of each game.MC was an idea developed by Notch after he saw Infiniminer, so therefore MC can be considered a clone of infiniminer.SC is NOT a clone of MC, it is a game created from the idea of minecraft.SC and MC are both games in the genre of Voxel Based Video Games.

Anyway, I will end this post here and leave it to you guys now.
Remember:Keep it civilKeep it respectfulKeep it cleanKeep it on topicDo not start warsThere will be no "Clone talk"There will be no "This one is better" debates.This post is for people to compare the 2 and decide for themselves which is right for them, and to be more informative for people who wish to compare the 2.I now send this thread out in hopes that it ends the debate and the wars between the 2 games.
Also, if you guys want to help stop the wars and debates about MCPE and SC, add this to your signiture!
Due to the fact that the facepalm quote was overly large, and can possibly be seen as an argument starter/flame post, I have decided to remove it to prevent problems from arising, and to save space on this main post.

Sep 15, 2011vexx32 posted a message on [!READ THE OP!] Buying Minecraft Gift Codes for Others!Posted in: DiscussionREAD THE GUIDELINES
BEFORE MAKING A REQUEST
If you do not read the entire post, I reserve the right to ignore you, whether you're trolling, flaming, asking for codes while you already have a paid account, or just being irritating.
Read the entire post before making a comment or request.
I had something like this set up over on SporeBase forums. I keep a little thread there to let new members know what I'm doing, and it directs them here. They're a small forum, but I ended up buying several people gift codes. (Screenshot of the "Gift Codes" section of my profile page below the list for a small proof).
Please note, before you try to say I'm a scammer or something like that... I am not asking you to participate in any scamming survey, join up for a website, or anything like that, OK?

Got an interesting idea the other day, from a user in my Riddles thread round here. It is this: if I put up a riddle once a month, and give you all a week to solve it, the winner gets a code instantly, regardless of their position on the list. People who have not yet got onto the list are also able to enter, but while I will give at most three hints to people who are on the list, I will not give any hints to those not on the list.
To be honest, it probably isn't that much of a handicap, but I'd prefer to give users on the list already a slight advantage. If you can solve the riddle, you get the code. Simple as that. However, because I like to make it a very tough challenge, I'll not indicate if you're on the right track or not (i.e., I'll only tell you whether you're right or wrong), apart from the three hints (which will be the same three hints for each person).
To avoid clogging up this thread, all answers to the riddle must be PM'd to me. I'd prefer it if each member opened one private conversation with me, and then replied to that each time, rather than drowning the rest of my inbox in new conversations each time they have a new guess. The riddle will be posted in this section of this thread.
Also, you may not go and post this riddle anywhere else in order to try and get help from others who use that site. Last time, someone posted it to a Yahoo! Answers site, but posting it to any site or forum is a violation of the rules. You must not use the Internet to get help for these. You may gather a few friends or family (as in, people you know outside of the Internet) and try to solve it together, but once more the riddle must not be spread around the Internet, at least until the competition is over.
If I hear of anyone doing it again, that person will be disqualified from all future competitions of this nature. We can and will find out if you do. The Internet is a very easy place to trace people. If the person who did it is on the list, their entry will be removed. I cannot abide cheaters. Cheating will not help you. Do it fairly or not at all.
You are all forbidden from posting this riddle anywhere on the Internet for any purpose whatsoever until the competition has ended for this riddle. I am keeping a private list of the riddles, the associated hints and the answers for each (which will be released either after the one-week period, or as soon as someone guesses the answer), so that you may confound your friends and anyone else you meet on the Internet in the event I come up with an incredibly difficult riddle. If you want any of the previous riddles, you need only ask.
IF YOU FAIL TO READ THE RULES CONCERNING THE RIDDLE (YEAH, THAT TEXT JUST UP THERE), DO NOT BOTHER SENDING ANY GUESSES. THE RULES ARE BINDING, AND I WILL NOT TOLERATE THOSE WHO BREAK THEM, KNOWINGLY OR NOT.
By clicking the spoiler and revealing the riddle, you acknowledge you have read and understand my rules. Break them at your own peril. I shall have no trouble tracking you down, for the other hopeful guessers you have wronged will not be too pleased with you either. If you want to clarify the rules, PM me.
Riddle Solved by dinofire.
Riddles and rhymes, rosemary and thyme;
Fire and smoke and endeavours sublime,
Elements all aflame with passage of time.
Air shimmers with lack of heat and earthen
Flame ascends to high echelons of heaven:
A new soul appears as ancient clock tolls 'gain.
Knowledge, power, sight and Death;
All can be altered save till ending's breath,
When even Time goes all but deaf.
Bound and caged in bars of iron and steel,
Rules and laws to bring them to heel;
To make them harm and slowly heal.
I do all these things and more, although
My full extent rises like fresh dough
'Till the end of all, lost 'mongst Time's flow.
What am I?
Mojang have begun selling Minecraft in stores in the United States! You can now buy Minecraft "prepaid cards" which contain a gift code and can be used to buy Minecraft. If you're unable to buy Minecraft over the Internet, and you live in the US, you can go into a Target, Walmart or Best Buy store and purchase a copy. More information here:

How it works
One thing I have been seeing a fair bit of is people picking at little inconsequential details in others' posts. Don't be tempted to do this. It only starts arguments, which we do not need. If you do, however, find something in another person's post or you find some solid evidence that they're lying (or just have some suspicions about the request), feel free to PM either myself, or Sgt. Traveler about it.
If you want a gift code, there are only two requirements - you must not already have bought Minecraft (requesting codes for other people is OK, but they'll need to contact me through PM or e-mail to prove they actually exist), and you must also have a good reason why you cannot buy the game (whether it's financial trouble, your parents won't let you buy stuff over the Internet, you don't have any money, etc).
Each fortnight, no more than one person will be added to the list... but also that if no requests show a reasonable display of effort and care, there is the possibility the nobody may be added that week. In that case, I will simply not add anyone to the list, and the list cap effectively goes down by one.
I have recently seen an increase in people PMing or emailing me, requesting gift codes. Do not request via PM or e-mail. Please, just post on this thread. It is a hundred times easier to just check the thread for requests rather than having to sort through PMs and such. If you have trouble with posting or posts not appearing, talk to a moderator or administrator, or post in the Forum Help section.
Do not contact me through PM or e-mail unless absolutely necessary, you are considering donating/helping out, or there is something else you wish to discuss privately.
You may, however, contact me via PM if you wish to talk to me privately, but that should not (for the most part) be necessary. In order for me to consider you for a gift code, you must reply with a request for one. I will keep a list in the OP with people who've asked and haven't yet received their codes, and I'll also keep a list of people I bought codes for.
The gift code will be sent to you via PM, unless you specifically ask otherwise.
There will be no scamming or anything like that involved, you don't have to sign up for anything. This is a free gift I am offering out of generosity. I am hoping some others will follow suit, but we will see. For now, it's just me. Sgt. Traveler is our resident helper when am not around and he'll be able to answer just about any question (although keep in mind that he is not a moderator, so if there's any rule-breaking, just report it). Feel free to ask questions here, or via PM, whichever you prefer.
If any others want to buy codes for people, they can PM me about it (or post here) and they can buy codes on a predetermined basis (or just one for a particular person they choose).
They themselves will send the code to the recipient, and I will ask for screenshot proof (from their minecraft.net or account.mojang.com account page) that they have given the code to the person before removing them from the "Waiting List".
I will remove members as soon as I send out codes to them. I am very busy these days, and frequently forget to remove people, so I've decided to remove them as soon as I've sent them the PM containing the gift code. If I see that a member who is next in line for receiving a code has been inactive for at least a month, I will simply remove them. This is moving at snail-pace as it is, and I have no desire to make people who are willing to follow my rules wait any longer than necessary.
If a person has not redeemed their code after a week's time of sending the PM, I'll give that code to another. This applies to active people as well, if they suddenly become inexplicably inactive. This is simply to keep things moving smoothly. In other words, check every few weeks where you are on the list, maybe every week if you're near the top to avoid being passed by.
Now that that's all explained, I ask one last time, please do not troll, flame, spam or otherwise degrade the quality of this topic. If you have ideas for improving my methods, you may suggest them. Sarcastic/Non-Serious/Degrading ideas will not be tolerated. Thanks.
One more thing. I myself will be buying codes on a basis of one per week. I'm not a millionaire.
Don't get annoyed if it takes a while. I may make exceptions and buy several codes at once on occasion, but don't count on it too often. I no longer have a job, so you guys are lucky my government has unemployment support payments.
If you wish to request a code for another person besides yourself, they must contact me if at all possible in any way. Either by e-mail (joelpfrancis[AT]gmail[DOT]com) or through PM on the forum, but they'll need to contact me. If they have not contacted me after several weeks, they may be removed when I next tidy up the list.
If special occasions arise (unable to contact me for some time, etc.) and I am notified, I may make exceptions.
All gift codes given through this will come from my own Minecraft/Mojang account (Vexx32 | [email protected])
Share and Enjoy!

You are in no way obligated to use these guidelines as any more than a guide, but don't complain if we tell you to look at these, as we will often have good reason for doing so. With many thanks to Enquent, who devised the majority of this, these are the guidelines for posting a request for a gift code.
N.B.: It is not necessary to include the headings. I would recommend you avoid doing so, but if you wish to, feel free.
== Short introduction ==
1-2 sentences about how you found out about this thread, how you found out about Minecraft and what you thought of it. You may include mention of mods, custom maps, texture packs, or anything else you have found thus far.
== Request body ==
3-5 sentences in paragraph form, within which you should include your age, why you are unable to purchase Minecraft, your financial or life situation that doesn't allow you to, other possible ways you've attempted to get Minecraft. Are you in school, university/college, high school? Do you live with your parents/on your own/with friends/family? Are you barely making ends meet living on your own?
== Closing == (Not required)
A polite closing, a 'thank you for reading', followed by your forum username or in-game name never hurt and looks nice making the whole post seem complete and finished.
== Further Information == (Not Required)
How many requests you have submitted thus far, one or two of your previous requests (not in a quote - preferably in a spoiler tag), and any other information not mentioned above you think we should know.
## Note ##
Please do your best to use clear English, with proper spelling and grammar. I am able to translate other languages using a machine translation and get the general gist of it, but it's a poor subsitute for what you yourself can probably write in most cases. If you need assistance in common spelling or grammatical errors, I will simply direct you to these two excellent comics which address the common problems we see around the internet these days:
http://theoatmeal.co...ics/misspelling (commonly misspelled words)
http://theoatmeal.com/comics/semicolon (how to use a semicolon)
The length of each section above is only a guide and you may expand upon the amount of writing in each, but refrain from shortening them, as the guide above gives minimum amounts to mitigate the amount of simple, one-line requests.
## Formatting & How to Use it ##
I have noticed that some people have taken to using a small amount of formatting. I have no problem with this, and I do encourage it, for it makes your main points stand out and improves the readability, but only if used in good taste.
- Use colors like yellow or a light grey that are difficult to read on the forum's white-grey background.
- Split or break words with formatting (e.g., freedom). This breaks the flow of the sentence and makes it very confusing to read.
- Format everything. Doing so just makes it harder to read, and more annoying. Sure, it stands out, but it's like shouting at someone incessantly. Nobody likes it.
- Use a non-standard font size for your entire post, or a large part of it. Make sure it is of a readable size!
- Use excessive amounts of paragraphs. They should be used to group sentences together that share an idea or focus.
- Start a new paragraph for every single sentence or every two sentences.
- Use formatting to emphasize your main points.
- Use formatting only as required.
- Use a variety of colours, if you feel the need. It helps break the monotonous look of a post and makes it easier to read. Not necessary, so don't go overboard.
- Take note of anything you could yourself use that you notice in the requests I quote, and use it well.
- Read over your request to double-check that it is readable and easy to understand.
- Use paragraphs to break your post into sections, as outlined in the main Guidelines section.
This will, of course, be mainly applicable for those requesting a gift code for themselves, but if you are requesting one for someone else, merely modify the template as needed.
Once again, this is not required, but it will help make your request look 'professional' and easy to read. Two pages of poorly written requests means nobody gets added to the list!
In addition, anyone found to have copied any part of someone else's request is instantly disqualified from my consideration. The name of the game is effort here, and I will not tolerate people stealing someone else's story.
Words have power, and I will not permit them to be stolen.

Feel free to make your own banners, but try to avoid confusing people; don't put things on your banners that don't match with what I do, or else we end up with silly arguments and lots of confused people. Don't make false claims, and do not misrepresent me, please.

These are the people who have generously linked their mod, map or texture pack through my adfly or adcraft account in order to donate to me, usually because they do not have enough spare money laying around to donate directly. This is a great way to do it, because every little bit counts, and will ensure that adf.ly/adcraft pay out the donations each month.
If you wish to donate, do so by clicking the above button.

Frequently Asked Questions
- "If someone is removed from the list by their own request, can I take their place?"
- "My request was quoted, but I'm not on the list?!"
- "Why haven't you quoted my request?"
- "I think someone is lying in their request! What do I do?"
- "How long will this take?"
- "What do I do if I didn't get quoted/picked?"
- "Can/Should I re-post my request?"
No. If someone requests their own removal from the list, you may not take their spot. It is unfair to just about everyone else on the list who has been waiting. There is one exception that I will allow. This is if the person no longer wishes to be on the list wants to give up their spot to another, instead of me simply removing their name. This exception exists for two reasons. First, because it is a request from them directly, without others clamouring to take the spot. Second, because it would amount to the same thing as them not telling me and then just giving the code to any other person (typically a friend or sibling).
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"My request was quoted, but I'm not on the list!"
If your request was quoted, congratulations. You've submitted a good-quality request. This doesn't automatically mean you're going to get onto the list, but it does mean you have a good chance. I only pick one person out each week to go on the list, so that everyone can have a chance to post a request. If you were quoted but not added, then please re-post your request. Do not quote your original/previous request; the forum doesn't like nested quotes, and removes them. This can make it confusing, and also means that I can't show off your request again properly. Either amend your original request, or put it somewhere in your post with any additional information you wish to include.
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"Why haven't you quoted my request?"
I only quote the best requests, in order to show everyone what has a high chance of getting into the list, but I read every request. If you weren't quoted, then it generally just means your request wasn't good enough. If you think I have in fact overlooked you, then feel free to let me know; either just post again or PM me, preferably with the request included. I do my best to read each and every post on this thread, so it is very unlikely that I miss any, but it can and occasionally does happen.
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"I think someone is lying in their request! What do I do?"
PM either myself, Sgt. Traveler or Enquent about it. Quote the suspect post, and give your reasons and/or evidence against it. Be clear and concise. If we decide your suspicion is well-founded, we will investigate. It is preferable you do not pick apart someone else's request in the thread here, unless we have specifically asked for public opinion on the matter, since it can quite easily start a mud-slinging contest.
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"How long will this take?"
Let's do the math. I myself buy usually one code per fortnight, whilst Enquent typically buys around two codes each week (Enquent's had to stop buying codes for the moment due to a change of circumstances). That's around 2-3 codes every week.The list is around 430 long, so we'll work out how long it takes for you to get from bottom to top. 430 divided by 3 gives 143 weeks. Divide by 4 to get 36 months. 65 divided by 12 gives around 3 years. So yeah, long wait... :/
We do what we can to shorten it, but it got out of hand a while back, and we haven't managed to totally reign it in again just yet.
N.B.: This is no longer accurate, but it should still give a rough idea. I'll come back and update it every so often, but till then I'm sure a little math never hurt anyone.
N.B.: This is no longer anywhere near accurate. I am currently buying codes on my own, and can only presently afford a code every two weeks. It's going to be a long wait, short of me suddenly getting rich.
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"What do I do if I didn't get quoted/picked?"
If you weren't quoted, your request was not overlooked. It simply means your request needs a bit of work. Read the guidelines and see what you can improve on. If you were quoted and not chosen to go on the list, see if you can add anything to your request and make it clearer and more concise. A little formatting may help, but use it wisely. Re-post your request to be considered for the next week's addition to the list. Only one person from each week's requests will be added, and I do not dig back beyond a week (not beyond my last decision post).
Back to Frequently Asked Questions
"Can/Should I re-post my request?"
If I have added someone to the list, you are required to re-post your request if you still want to be taken into consideration. If you were not quoted, you will need to improve your request, and even if you were, it's probably a good idea to try to refine your request a little more. Read over the guidelines, and perhaps add a touch of careful formatting.

First and foremost, just post on this thread. I read every reply that is posted, and I reply to almost all of them where a reply is warranted.If you feel the need to contact me privately, you can also PM me here on the forums, or email me. I can also be contacted on SporeBase Forums, where I am known by the same name. My email address is [email protected]. If you wish to contact me about helping me out with this, please PM me. I will answer your questions and we should be able to make some sort of arrangement. Since Mojang has recommended circumventing the restriction with multiple accounts, I'll probably give each person access to one "gift code" account at a time, through which they'll buy codes. This way, everyone knows they're going through me, and the people helping can keep their 5 gift codes on their account for their close friends and such.

bnvdarklord has kindly made a nifty little tool you can use to keep track of the list without needing to come here all the time. It displays the title of the thread and the total number of list entries, along with the list itself. It also allows you to search or filter the list to find a certain username. Download it here:http://www.mediafire...6w5oltxvbv42n0o

Awesomeslayerg has set up a Steam group for this effort. I myself do not largely use Steam, but if the group gets enough members, I'm sure I'll find some use for it!

Apr 7, 2013I think Iron Ladder should be added to the game as a solid block that's climbable and doesn't need any block behind it unlike wood ladders and climbable vines. It could be suspended in mid-air just like any other block besides signs, sand, and gravel. The elements would be:Posted in: Suggestions
Speed: (If Mojang wants to add it)
If powered by redstone then you can climb 2x-5x faster, depending on the signal strength.
It can be pushed by pistons to make secret mountain entrences, harder parkour, and more!
It can be used to make many buildings look better such as an Eiffel Tower or water tower.
Due to popular demand! This post's sister post, Rope Ladders!
Also, check out this awesome mod made by phline that adds these to the game, just in a different fashion. (Minecraft 1.5.1, not being currently updated unfortunately)

Jul 8, 2013Right now, Classic is the downgraded free version of Minecraft. The only great things about it is that it’s free to play, it gives a sense of what Minecraft is, and it gets people to buy it. But…people don’t like it because of a few reasons:Posted in: Classic - Creative Mode
* Can’t fly
* Has bugs
* Is in browser (so I have to downgrade my Java if I wanna play it and I can’t make it fullscreen and I need Internet connection)
* Limited blocks
* Can’t see very well through darkness
* Limited map size
* Can’t place on “bedrock”
* Can’t place water or lava
* Lags a lot (Thanks, MineBrick12!)
I’ll add more of those reasons here as time goes on.
Now, Mojang should just improve Classic so it wouldn’t be worthless anymore. Here’s some ideas I (and, as time goes on, the community came up with) have:
* Add fly mode
* Fix the bugs (or, at least, kinda fix it, I don’t know how Mojang fixes it)
* Make a client (.EXE for Windows, don’t know the file extension for Mac XD or Linux)
* Add more blocks (maybe some blocks exclusive to Classic!)
* Add “brightness” function
* Increase map size (or for better, make it
infiniteactually, Java limitations can’t make the Minecraft world infinite. So make the map 32000000*32000000)
* Cubic chunks
* Ability to place on “bedrock”
* Ability to place water and lava
* Performance increase (Thanks, MineBrick12!)
* Third person, front and back (Thanks, UnknownGuy200!)
* Fullscreen (F11, or, togglable in options) (Thanks, UnknownGuy200!)
Keep in mind this is centered around the idea that Classic is supposed to be Freebuild mode, not a Creative gamemode. So don’t suggest “TNT that explodes!” or “Mobs like squids that are evil”—(anybody get that reference? No? Oh, come on, don’t insult Sky and his Army)—“and cows and pigs!” or “Functional redstone!”. You get the point.
So, start suggesting! (And seeing what’s currently wrong with Classic.) And I’ll see if I can add it to the list with the first person to come up with the idea and the people who improved on that particular idea.
