Also sorry if I'm being boring by following this so closely, I just luuuurve internet drama!

I disagree with TB on the part of British humor. Yogscast is there to promote a product and the last thing you do is going around and f-bombing people.

Imaging an E3 where one company is going around swearing about every other product then their own... Way to talk about bad publicity.

I don't know if you've ever been to a conference or convention, but guest speakers are brought in to entertain the crowd not to promote anything. I said it earlier but if you booked Chris Rock for your convention (and most of the conferences I've been to like to get an edgy comic) you'd expect him to swear and do his usual comedy. Yogscast went to minecon and did exactly what anyone who watched their channel would expect them to.
And remember that Notch is a big yogscast fan so he knew exactly what their humour was like.

The crowd we're all laughing and I've not seen a single complaint from anyone at minecon except from Notch. I think theres more to this story than we know, and we'll find out in 6-12 hours when their flight lands; and they've gone home and had their jaffa cakes.

You misunderstand my point. If I brought any celebrity to a convention that I manage, they automaticly endorse either a product or a statement.

It's the responsibility of the products owners to maintain the boundaries of what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour in this kind of situation. If people didn't want Chris Rock swearing at a convention they'd ask and he'd either agree or just leave. They didn't do that to yogscast and that's why I think that this is unfair if that is the actual reason that they are angry.

I don't think, that the swearing on the videos is the actual reason for all this. The videos of Yogscast are well known to almost everyone that plays games and has a youtube account and their language should also be known by notch. I don't think, that he invented them to show a video of more than an hour which is so different from their usual stuff. And even if Notch did not wanted them to swear why did no one check the video before showing it or asked them to swear less. I think there was something happening "off-air" and I think we should wait for lewis and simons response on that a don't judge all this just because of a few tweets.

it's funny and yet sad to see how nobody reads Notch his explanation tweets and thinks this is due to the onstage video. But in fact the onstage thing has absolutely nothing to do with it.

I had actually looked at his twitter yesterday before he tweeted that. I figured they were being different kinds of assholes. Thanks for reminding me to check. I wont actually be surprised if yogscast lose half or more of their subscribers.

Not really. They twisted some of Notch's words (YC: "Out of all the tweets that Notch sent out, most hurtful was the accusation that we told a kid to “fuck off” and crossed out another signature – which is something we would never ever do." N: "A kid wanted them to sign something I had signed, and they said they'd cross it out and put "fuck you" there instead.") and properly addresed only some of Notch's complains (they completely missed the insulting people and being dickish parts). Also, they were thinking for too long about what to say - matters like that should be resolved ASAP.

It's a 14 hour flight from vegas to london plus a 5 hour drive to where they live from heathrow, you really expected them to reply on the plane? Besides, if Notch had spent more time thinking instead of blurting out randomly then he woulnd't have had to appologise the next day.

N: "A kid wanted them to sign something I had signed, and they said they'd cross it out and put "fuck you" there instead."
Well Notch can't possibly have seen that happen first hand since he would have been off doing his own stuff, so I highly expect this was garbage that someone told Notch. Plus theres so many videos on youtube of yogscast doing the signings that if this really happened someone would have filmed it and other people would have seen it happen.

they completely missed the insulting people and being dickish parts
Well Notch really never gave any details about that so it'd be hard for them to rebute.

Yogcast aren't the only one complaining about the ubber fail that was minecon and the giant lack of preparation. They switched the attack on them into an attack on Minecon/Mojang/Notch.

They responded well, but they had 24 hours to respond, I would be curious to know how they actually responded between them. It's probably a lot different.

This entire thing is going nowhere now. We've been trolled by all of them I think. Both side are playing us all.

Just out of curiousity...

Who's who in this relationship? Is Notch daddy and Yogscast mommy? They did always seem rather effeminate to me.

On a different note, why are we calling them mom and dad anyway? I play Minecraft because of friends from school, but I don't call them my parents. And Notch is why the game is so popular, not Yogscast. More like grandfather and grandson fighting.

Yes, I just trolled the hell out of this topic. Get over it. Go diggy diggy hole or something...

I discovered minecraft after it was mentioned of penny arcade but got bored of vanilla after I'd built my 3rd stupidly giant mansion. Then I found yogscast and discovered loads of great mods to keep the game fun, and loads of amazing builds that inspired me to try more ambitious projects.

I'd like to think Minecraft is a good enough game to have been a hit without yogscast, but I've no doubt yogscasts 80million views a month have certainly helped. And without fans, there would be no mods and without mods there would be few fans. I would have stopped playing long ago without single player mods or multiplayer server mods. Vanilla minecraft is really just a 3d voxel paint program, I've seen better games die from lack of publicity.

p.s
Notch is the Mother, for he giveth birth. Yogs is the father for he raisith to be strong and powerful and then credits himself.

And so the saga ends with Notch appologising for being a dick and mojang and yogscast tweeting tweets of friendship and cake.

The moral of the story is; Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering

and don't be a dick.

In my opinion the moral is that you should keep your mouth shut till you have complete evidence to what you're saying before you start talking. Since he didn't have actual evidence, Notch was screwed from the get-go. I thought he actually had evidence when he started saying yogscast had done stupid stuff.
When you're the face of something big, you shouldn't be spreading rumors.

The story that Notch was told was that Yogscast were being mean to children and other fans there. Swearing was at those fans was what annoyed Notch. Not Yogscast swearing in general.
The whole issue has been resolved anyway. It was just a rumor that Notch took to heart because he was tired and Minecon was a bit of a mess.

On a side note, I thought this post had been locked since the whole thing had been resolved?
