In June, Mr. Persson said Mojang “does not exist to make as much money as possible for the owners.” Instead, he said, “Mojang exists because I got lucky with ‘Minecraft,’ and it got way bigger than I could handle on my own.”

2.5 billion dollars later…

As you might already know, Persson is the creator of Minecraft and the majority shareholder at Mojang. He’s decided that he doesn’t want the responsibility of owning a company of such global significance. Over the past few years he’s made attempts to work on smaller projects, but the pressure of owning Minecraft became too much for him to handle. The only option was to sell Mojang. He’ll continue to do cool stuff though. Don’t worry about that.

lol jokes apart, this seems to be a very good investment. They appear to have made 115 million in profits last year from a 291 million revenue, which is good growth expectations in Microsoft’s hands :P

They also appeared to be heavy critics of Microsoft and refused to make a version for windows phone reputing the platform too small. I guess with their user base, they can move a lot of weight in the tech industry, which makes them a good asset to acquire.

integrity, for 2.5 billions dollars I can sell mine also :)

I really think Notch deserved it. It’s actually one of the few acquisitions that I can say “It wasn’t just luck, Notch worked his ass off for this and it’s a good product”.

off course a lot the important ideas for minecraft had been taken from an open source game called infiniminer made by Zachary Barth

There is an item of mine which looks Trending on portfolio and item details page. However, when you search it, there is no trending indicator on it. Which means, it’s not displayed as Trending in search. I’ve checked that for some hours ago and it was the same. Is this a bug?

exactly as my item,

if you search for a term that have something to do with my item it will show up on the first page at the top. this is “best match” option. no trending icons on the thumbnail.

if you list the search results as “trending” my item is gone from first page, lot of trending items thumbnails appear

mystery

sorry forgot about this


I respect every member in this community and I will dearly spend hours on end explaining all aspects to the most detailed point I can ( and to the extent of my knowledge ) but I will not explain myself a million times to someone who just feels the need to start a fire.

from your answer it looks like you didn’t open the thread to understand what some of the users think about locking threads but just to post a justification for why locking threads is a perfect decision in every situations and is not a problem for anyone except a couple – no wait – except one author that have nothing better to do than rant around.

ok, just a problem of communication, no need to get all emotive, my bad, I’ve just understood this thread in a wrong way.


Come on mate! Help us make this a better place
is what I’m trying to do

wait a second


don’t start riots for every minor thing!

what riots did I start? and when?


” Hey, you did that again, why?! Huh?! Tell me! I must know why?!!!!”

I know why, I didn’t ask you why.

Did you actually read my posts in this thread or you are just seeing my post so it becomes automatically a rant in your head?

Out of so many authors, you keep being the only one that feels the need to second guess every decision we make

there was also creattive with the same, as you say, rant? but looks like you have something with me. I mean when everything that happens is blamed on one person.

Out of so many authors, you keep being the only one

I’m the only one :)

But will the be enough to repay the investment ? I think there is a hidden secret behind the purchase.

this gets more stranger, more I think about it.

I have 2 accounts- one withdrawal was processed the other hasn’t come in yet. Must be something unusual going one since I usually get both at the same time.
