Notch: "The more I think about realistic mode with food and water bars (and weight limits?), the more fun it seems." (Nov 28, 2010)
Notch: "It will be optional if we add it, yes. Realism slider. At the other extreme, you get Creative Mode from Minecraft Classic." (Nov 28, 2010)
FeverSK: "Don't do just one slider. Add multiple checkboxes. Do I want to have to eat food? Do I want monsters?, etc. Layers of realism."
Notch: "im thinking a slider, and an "advanced" button with checkboxes" (Nov 28, 2010)Creative mode in Alpha:

ToMzorz_hu: "what about making 'physical' flags to set PvP areas and hostile mob spawning areas? + a 'favourite servers' menu would be great

spartanbard: "Have you considered different day/night timing modes? Perhaps even real-time days and nights?"

Notch: "it is true!" (Nov 23, 2010)Android version:

Notch: "I hope so, yes." (Nov 22, 2010)Music boxes in multiplayer:

Removing name labels, perhas group-based:
Jossi2011: "are you going to add a mechanic to remove nameplates? Perhaps a group system that shows the nameplates only of those your the group?"
Notch: "Yes, and making them per-team is a great idea!" (Nov 17, 2010)On Minecraft clones:
Notch: "Btw, there is no official iPhone or android minecraft yet. If you're working on a clone, that's cool, but please don't imply it's ours."
Quatroking: "are they allowed to make money off it?"
Notch: "well, sure. Ideas are meant to spread. But i wish they try to make it original rather than a straight clone." (Nov 15, 2010)

The Nether is only metaphorically "down there":
Killspammer: "@RecovOne Down there? there must be a way to dig down to it then MUSTT DIGGG"
Notch: "Metaphorical "down there"! Because it's called the "Nether". *shifty eyes*" (Nov 11, 2010)Minecrat will probably never be feature complete:
Noctale: "I thought beta was feature complete? Surely you won't get named monsters, skill trees and everything else in as well?"
Notch: "minecraft will probably never be feature complete.." (Nov 11, 2010)Beta only when SMP works well:
murpo: "if you do server side health now will it be completed before beta"
Notch: "Beta happens when SMP works well, and that includes having server side health" (Nov 11, 2010)Notch's humorous cop-out for lamps, for the time being:
