** Villagers are often called "[[SpongebobSquarepants Squidwards]]" or "Testificates". The former because their [[GagNose bulbous noses]] and low-pitch voices resemble the character of the same name and the latter because of a name tag that appeared over them in beta tests.

** At [=MineCon=] 2015, it was [[WriterCopOut effectively announced]] that there would be no official modding API, because the existing fan-created Minecraft Forge had done enough to fill that role.

* ArtistDisillusionment: Notch steadily grew more and more detached from ''Minecraft'' (largely a result of various instances of FanDumb) beginning in 2011 and ending with the 2014 sale of Mojang to Microsoft.

* ArtistDisillusionment: Notch steadily grew more and more detached from ''Minecraft'' (largely a result of various instances of FanDumb) incidents) beginning in 2011 and ending with the 2014 sale of Mojang to Microsoft.

* FanDumb: A particularly moronic example occurred in October of 2010 when a group of fans brought the official servers down with a [=DDoS=] attack. Their reason? [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/104600-Minecraft-Multiplayer-Brought-Down-by-DDoS-Attack They were upset that Notch was not releasing new content fast enough]] and they [[{{Hypocrite}} wanted to see an improvement in Notch's attitude.]]

** Surprisingly averted in one high profile case. After FanDumb [=DDoSed=] the multiplayer servers (because they wanted Notch to release a Minecraft update, no less), they're pretty damn lucky Notch didn't just give them the middle finger and took them down permanently. He was also surprisingly okay with update 1.8 being leaked early, as it gave the fans a chance to find bugs so that they could be fixed before the official release. In fact, ever since that leak, Mojang ''themselves'' have been regularly leaking the updates early.

** Also averted in that the dev team deals with flak and bile from the fandom whenever any big change is announced, and yet still decide to put out snapshots instead of eliminating the snapshot system entirely and sticking to full, non-experimental updates. This is justified in that they do care about fan feedback about the changes.

This is justified in that they do care about fan feedback about the changes.
