The response is in… Wait the forums are down… Ah here it is:
So. This is almost as exciting as it is cringe worthy. Still no update from the Yogscast, but seeing as how they aren’t even close to being home and Notch is on vacation, I doubt we will get any more details any time soon.
Now before I get into what Notch has said, let me point out a couple observations I have made. I understand people being upset. This battle is not pretty, nor fun, essentially it’s a game that’s been promoted by people like and including the Yogscast, yet without it they themselves wouldn’t have the same fan base they do now. The biggest point is though, the Yogscast have not had a chance to tell their side of the story. People are so ready to attack both Notch and/or the Yogscast and they have no idea whats going on other than what little Notch has actually said.

Woke up this morning to see the chaos going on about some events at MineCon. If you haven’t heard anything let me fill you in.
What was everyone’s first guess? Unfortunately it was the Yogscast. Yes their highlight reel had cursing in it from previously recorded videos, but surely Mojang knew of this. They typically do a screening at these kinds of things to make sure everything follows the guidelines, right?
WARNING: There might be a drop or two of the F-bomb ahead.
So today was the big day! Minecon is finally here! Minecraft fans all over the world have been eagerly waiting for today, and for the big release of Minecraft 1.0.

We got to meet the whole Mojang team, and see the faces behind the pixles. The biggest moment was when Notch himself walked out. The man that made the game millions of people fell in love with. He talked a bit about Mojang’s history and where they’re headed. But the moment everyone was waiting for was the official release of Minecraft 1.0. And that moment came with the flip of a switch.
It’s been a while. Interest in Minecraft has either dropped to a crawl or went to strictly pre-releases. Everyone is waiting for the full release of Minecraft which will happen during MineCon on the 18th of this month.
With all that said, its quite obvious that the traffic to the server has died down. So, until the full release of Minecraft, our server is Whitelist free! Come join us. Basic rules still apply (you can still get banned). If you like what you see we will add you to the list so when we officially upgrade you’ll still have access.
