Happy Monday everyone.

Today’s the day of the Pocket Edition panel! As I mentioned last week, the Minecraft: Pocket Edition developers will be taking questions from this reddit thread and answering them LIVE on air. There’s still time to submit your questions, so over there and get inquisitive.

It’s all in celebration of us reaching 20 million sales last week. We’ve actually reached 21 million to-date, but that’s not as catchy a milestone, so let’s roll with the 20 million for now.

See you at 17:00 CEST – click the time to see when that is in your timezone.

The stream will be broadcast on http://www.twitch.tv/jbernhardsson.

  Bejeweled in Minecraft  


Today's spotlight focuses on a Minecraft-based version of Bejeweled, made by Sethbling! Played entirely in your inventory, the only thing this particular version of the game is missing is a scoreboard. It is still every bit as addicting as the original, and a good bit of fun! You can get download links right here. Enjoy!

  I am Markus Persson aka Notch, Creator of Minecraft - Ask me Anything!  

Hi! I'm the guy who created the first version of Minecraft in June 2009. I worked on it alone up until late 2010 when we started Mojang, and I finally left the lead developer position in December of 2011. I enjoy house music and programming, and my favorite color is purple. Ask me anything!

If you happen to have some money, you can donate it to the EFF and help make the world a better place!


edit: The AMA is over! Thanks for all your questions!

  A Minecraft convention built on lies  

One of the latest dramas involving Minecraft involves conventions, money, lies and false advertising. The money involved was over $50,000. The people involved were shady and cryptic. The attendees involved are mad and out of money. What happened? It was a convention for Minecrafters that was built on lies and deception. It was called "Meeting of the Mines". This scam was so wide-spread, it made the local news. If you want the summary of this whole scandal in video form, BebopVox from Yogscast explains it well in this YouTube video.

So, let's get started. There was this Minecraft convention called Meeting of the Mines. The first convention held was in Florida with the next one being held in New York. This Minecraft convention promised a lot of things from $500 creation contest, to give-aways, to a Xbox one scavenger hunt, to PS4 give-aways and more. The only thing that took place was the $1000 costume contest. Oh, wait, the check bounced because it was apparantly "contested." A lot was promised; only so little was done.

Over 1,024 tickets were sold at 50 a piece totalling to $51,200 USD. The next convention, in New York, was scheduled to be at the Marriot in Uniondale, NY but the management at the Marriott says it was never booked for a convention. Interesting.

The start time for this convention was 12 noon but opened 20 minutes later. However, it was shut-down by 2:20 PM, two hours later. So, it had 50,000 dollars to use for the convention, but shut down abruptly two hours later. Why? Because it was apparantly getting "out of hand." A Saturday event was also scheduled but never took place and the main event took place on a Sunday.

Any more warning signs? The event "Meeting of the Mines" was sponsored by Nickelodeon, Red Bull, and a local gaming store "Play n Trade" as displayed on their website, which has been taken down. However, Kevin Roman has issued a long statement regarding the matter on this website claiming his innocence.

So, the attendees came to the convention in Florida but something was amiss. There was no security and the "ticket checker" was reported by many to be very lenient and was a volunteer. Essentially, some people could walk in without the $50 USD ticket. But after about an hour, the events started getting shut down due to "people rushing the doors." However, the thing is, many parents were with their children so why would they act so aggressively? The parents then started to loot the convention by taking Minecraft cut-outs to get their money's worth.

Some give-aways were not available, so what did they do? They gave away pens. Yes, you read that right. They gave away ball-point pens instead of the Minecraft stuff they promised. Among other things was a peculiar event called Star-Crafting. No, not that StarCraft (tm) but rather a Minecraft-based plan where MOTM staff planned to turn attendees into YouTube stars with their own Twitter, Facebook and YouTube following.

The contest boiled down to the MOTM staff choosing 6 lucky people to become the next YouTube Minecraft sensations. From there, their Minecraft name would be of their choosing... however, they would have to add the suffix "MOTM" to their name. Then came the use of the social media accounts and they said themselves they would get followed, liked and subscribed by everyone in attendance because they were so awesome! From there, their own website and merchandise would be created for their YouTube star to shine! And last but not least, they would travel with the MOTM staff as they bring the Minecraft brand to other states.

It all smells like a lot of promises with a hint of sliminess. It all seems so far-fetched. Luckily, Mojang staff Vu Bui has been notified and is working directly with the scammed people and will be going after Kevin and the team for such an event gone awry.

At CraftHub, the best thing we hope for is that the attendees get their money back in some form of compensation and hope everyone learns to keep an eye peeled for future scams. Happy crafting.

The Minecraft Book

Video Tutorial Series-  How to Find Diamonds

From YouTube user
DariusAK

Here’s a simple how to video with regard to finding diamonds.  I agree with this chap that he got lucky in finding diamonds so quickly, but generally speaking, this is the way to do it.  Sinking several mineshafts into various walls than having branches off those shafts is the way to reliably find diamonds.  But make sure you don’t get lost.

To avoid getting lost, follow this tip:  Place all torches on the wall to your right, not on the floor.  Then, if you get turned around somehow, you will remember that going out from your base, all the torches on the walls are on the right side, so if you want to go back, simply make sure that all the torches are to your left, and follow the trail back.
