Suggestion Title: Make a petition for Mojang to change those rulesShort Description: ... And spread that petition to other private servers' forums.Long Description: Make a petition for Mojang to change the EULA a bit and post that petition to other private servers' forums using a basic account for their server. Below is the copy of what I've sent to Mojang. Feel free to use some of that while writing that petition. Don't forget to mention that a good portion of your population never even gave you any money. And you still require legit accounts (that should be the only requirement). ---------------------------------------------------------------------- I play on a modded private server with 3 of my friends. We sometimes change modpacks, but we always play some heavily modded modpack (100+ mods). Never Vanilla. We tried to host such a server ourselves a few times, but having admin rights wasn't worth the effort. The server we are currently playing on had recieved a warning/notice about the ability for players to buy in-game advantages with real money. A part of that said: "We work for Mojang, the creators of Minecraft, helping to protect Mojang’s intellectual property rights and the Minecraft community." Your intelectual property ain't worth much without the community. This move ain't protecting the comunity. As far as I know, Mojang's community is mostly spread over private servers. Microsoft's community owns Vanilla (or will very soon. Java Vanilla doesn't really have a reason to exist). The owners of long-lasting modded servers invest a lot in keeping them online. Also, good servers "encourage" people to buy original accounts to be able to play. Only because of that, we all have legit Mojang accounts. I don't want the server we play on to be shut down for either legal or financial reasons. Players aren't interested much in buying cosmetics in this kind of Minecraft and not being able to sell anything is a good reason to stop hosting. Personally, I bought MC for the exploration it offers. Not terrain, but gameplay exploration. I seldom use Google or Wiki to learn things. One friend likes to glitch stuff and find small exploits between mods. Another likes acting like a magician. And the third always focuses on progress and completing everything "important". Vanilla just ain't interesting enough. There are better alternatives than Minecraft for that kind of gameplay. So, PLEASE! Give big modded servers a way to exist. Either help them with direct funding, or change the EULA. But don't take the matter into your own hands. I like the customizability as it is, with hundreds of hosts (and their policies) to chose from and without Microsoft-like restrictions.
