Notch Seeks Community Permission To Track Player Data In Minecraft
Mojang's Notch, a smart man in game design and the management of his company's 20,000,000plus Minecraft players, is an excellent choice. The designer has put up an online poll on his personal blog to discover whether his cuboid customers would be comfortable with the company collecting different types of anonymized data from its users.
Mojang currently tracks only when a player logs in to the game. Notch proposes to collect "non-private" information, such as gameplay-session length and the type of OS, whether you are playing in a single or multi-player mode, and whether you are using the client or the web applet. The community will then have access to the data gathered "as usual."
"Naturally, the data sent will be fully anonymous," said Notch. "So it won't contain any information about your session or your user name, and it won't send any sensitive information that you don't want to divulge." We are shocked that this type of data isn't already being collected to be honest. If you're part of the Minecraft nation You can let your voice be heard by voting for or against data collection that is anonymous here.
