Notch ABEdit

i have never heard of such a company or that it owns Mojang. Can anyone provide sources for that? Goodsmudge (talk) 10:24, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Not "Notch AB" but Persson appears to have registered "Notch Enterprises AB": [1] (purpose appears to be to hold shares in subsidiaries). Some more information is at [2] while Mojang AB is [3], although you have to pay to get more details. For Mojang AB : [4] (key financial data at the bottom). Companies registered by Persson: [5]. Some websites appear to have collated information form the 2011 annual report: [6]. -84user (talk) 13:53, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

When was Mojang founded?Edit

Personn's article states late 2010, with a primary sourced tumbler as reference. This article states May 2009, and the reference is a PCWorld diary written by Mojang employees that never mentioned the founding at all let alone a 2009 date. -- ferret (talk) 16:45, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

The Swedish Business Registration Office, bolagsverket.se, and AllaBolag.se, a free source of information about Swedish companies, shows that the current Mojang AB (Organisationsnr: 556819-2388) was founded on 2010-09-17 by Markus Perssen. http://www.allabolag.se/5568192388/Mojang_AB --Egalino (talk) 13:27, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

The current Mojang AB is not the first Mojang company that Markus Perssen started. Markus and Rolf Janssen founded Mojang Specifications Handelsbolag (Organisationsnr: 969707-4483), a partnership, when they were working on Wurmonline. They later converted it into a limited liability company, Mojang Specifications ActieBolag. That company was renamed to OneTooFree AB when Markus stopped working on Wurmonline. --Egalino (talk) 13:27, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

SOPA blackoutEdit

Why is SOPA blackout a significant event in company's history to include it? It looks like a classic WP:NOTNEWS example -- a one-time event with no lasting significance (for the company). Mojang was just one of many, many companies that did this and the blackout did not affect their company, game development, staff, finances, etc. The mention in List of organizations with official stances on the Stop Online Piracy Act seems sufficient as they did not do any more than all the other companies. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 08:08, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

I would disagree in this case. While I will agree it was just one of many companies and organizations involved, it was a rare case of Mojang taking a political stand on a significant issue. Can you name other political issues that Mojang has stood up for and made a major stand against? I also strongly disagree that merely adding the company into that list you mention is sufficient for this information. I don't think the paragraph that exists currently needs to be expanded to any degree other than some minor cleanup, but as it is written certainly seems to fit within WP:UNDUE guidelines. This is verifiable and was widely talked about not only on the various Minecraft/Mojang game forums but also in the "gaming press" as well. As a part of the history of this company and a legitimate item to be mentioned in this article, I think it is very much encyclopedic. That an expanded section on the history of Mojang needs to be added into this article is certainly true, but that merely shows why this article isn't at a featured article standard yet. --Robert Horning (talk) 12:03, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
Rare case doesn't equal a notable case; it was similarly rare for most of the other companies. You have not addressed how Mojang did anything more than other companies or how this is of any lasting importance to company's development/games/staff/finances/etc. Widely talked about is not notable either or we would be including everyday celebrity gossips and such. But in the end I suppose this was given so much hype in press that we will end up including this regardless. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 13:52, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
It is notable to the company and verifiable so far as they did temporarily "black out" some of their pages as a part of the overall protest. You are asking if this deserves to be written up as a completely separate article? Absolutely not! WP:NOTE however spells out that the standards of notability for creation of an article does not apply to content within an article, so even bringing up that sort of standard is to me completely misplaced. Within the context of this article and in the context of what is Mojang, this incident deserves to be mentioned in a brief sentence or two... which is exactly as it is right now. As for lasting importance to the company... it does indicate there are at least some things which Mojang will stand up for on a political basis and for somebody reading this article I think it would be completely appropriate to let them know that Mojang particpated in this particular protest. It doesn't really deserve its own section... so if you want to downgrade this incident and simply put it into the history section... be my guest. The history section of this article is horribly written, so it does deserve a revamp where a minor mention of SOPA would be completely appropriate with the references currently given for the topic. That multiple sources talked about this to the point it may even technically meet the criteria for WP:NOTE as a separate article should speak volumes about the fact it should be included in this article as well. --Robert Horning (talk) 03:55, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
"You are asking if this deserves to be written up as a completely separate article?" Of course not, I'm not sure how you concluded that. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 07:28, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
You are invoking notability standards that simply don't apply to a simple fact that is included within an article. Did Mojang participate in the SOPA protests? Is this verifiable from multiple reliable sources? Does adding a couple sentences about this protest violate WP:UNDUE? I just fail to see what the problem is with what is written about this protest in this article. The notability standard you are invoking here applies to the notability of a subject as a whole for inclusion within Wikipedia, not for adding a simple fact which applies to an already notable topic. --Robert Horning (talk) 12:36, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
You seem to take my comment out of context and intended meaning and not address my main concerns. I already said that "this was given so much hype in press that we will end up including this regardless". I'm not sure what further arguing over words will accomplish. I voiced my opinion, you voiced yours. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 16:51, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

These may be useful. http://www.sverigessnyggastekontor.se/info/816/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.47.92.190 (talk) 01:36, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

SemiprotectedEdit

I just reverted an unhelpful IP edit, which broke the links to the Markus Persson article. That probably wasn't vandalism, but there has been a good deal of that as well lately, so I'm semiprotecting the article now. Semiprotection means IPs and new accounts can't edit; only accounts that are at least four days old, and have made at least ten edits. Sorry about that. If you want to change something in the article, please request here on talk and an autoconfirmed editor will change it for you. (If it's a good change.) Bishonen | talk 21:02, 29 April 2013 (UTC).

Edit

The logo should be updated, it has recently changed to this one : http://i.imgur.com/umt1xCN.png

  Not done: You need to upload the new logo and fill in the appropriate non-free information, then add a request to insert the file into this article. Thanks, Celestra (talk) 02:04, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

It was already added [7]. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 09:50, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Edit

This is the correct Logo of Mojang AB: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mojang_Logo_2013.png

Please edit the article and replace the logo. Dandious (talk) 18:05, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

I thought Mojang's logo passed the originality threshold with that non-simple-shape emblem; I didn't expect the file on Commons. I might be wrong, but I'm hesitant to take any actions. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 12:57, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
The point of this discussion is, that there should be the original logo with the TRANSPARENT background and the CORRECT MEASURES. And not a fake picture, created with dafont. So please edit this logo to the original one: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mojang_Logo_2013.pngDandious (talk) 19:37, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

Putt-Putt Fun Center v. Mojang ABEdit

Putt-Putt Fun Center v. Mojang AB never happened, Putt-Putt did threaten to sue but the case itself never occurred. 24.15.54.27 (talk) 06:23, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, just came to the Talk page to mention the same thing. It looks like it was just a Cease & Desist... so it's a bit misleading to have it titled under "Lawsuits". It should probably either be removed, or the name of the sub-section could be something more generic like "Legal Issues". Cheers.

Mojang 13/14 end of year financial reportEdit

Have just read the end of year 2013/2014 financial report for Mojang. Seeing as i'm still a new member, could someone update the page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Darlo2k4 (talkcontribs) 23:46, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Catacomb Snatch imageEdit

Does that image have really any relevance anymore? From what I can tell, it's just a relic from a deleted page. DARTHBOTTO talkcont 09:44, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Microsoft dealEdit

A Microsoft deal to buy out Mojang is in talks. I presume the article will need some updating, especially if it goes through.[8] --Lewis Hulbert (talk) 22:40, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

I have added the news and references. It needs to stay as written until a deal is finalized though. Chambr (talk) 22:44, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

The deal has gone through, and Mojang's parent is now Microsoft--123.255.40.74 (talk) 22:54, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

The deal has NOT gone through. Mojang and Microsoft have signed a plan for Microsoft to acquire Mojang, but until the deal is finalized, in late 2014 according to reports, Mojang is still a privately held company. Chambr (talk) 23:06, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Parent corpEdit

The parent corporation (in the infobox) is not Microsoft, and won't be until the deal closes later this year (if it does). Kendall-K1 (talk) 16:19, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

I agree. Did somebody try to implement that in the template? DARTHBOTTO talkcont 16:44, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Everyone, cool your jets! The acquisition has not yet been finalized, so stop editing like you're time travelers from the future. When the deal is finalized later this year, then we can put in the information saying Microsoft is the owner. Until then, read this page and understand the facts. DARTHBOTTO talkcont 17:48, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

I am surprised by how many people ignore the note that is DIRECTLY ON EITHER SIDE OF THE PARENT DESIGNATION!!! DARTHBOTTO talkcont 02:19, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
Fairly typical I'd say. -- ferret (talk) 12:54, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 15 September 2014Edit

When it mentions either of the parts where Mojang has been bought out by Microsoft, there also should be a reference to mojang.com, with a link right here: https://mojang.com/2014/09/yes-were-being-bought-by-microsoft/ 98.194.29.36 (talk) 23:59, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Why? We generally prefer secondary sources. See WP:PRIMARY. Is there something in the mojang source that isn't in the other sources? Not done: request not in "change X to Y" form. Kendall-K1 (talk) 00:15, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 2 April 2019Edit

I want to change the article about Mojang AB, because there is wrong information, the company was founded at 2002 not 2009 and i wanted to correct that Danielgumprecht (talk) 16:33, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Danielgumprecht, that is incorrect. As you can see in the very first sub-section of the history section, there were two different Mojangs. The first traded pro forma under the name "Mojang Specifications" from roughly 2003, and incorporated in 2007. Today, that company is known as Code Club AB and is, as far as I can tell, still active.
When Persson then launched Minecraft in 2009, he re-used the "Mojang Specifications" name, though independent of Code Club AB. This new Mojang Specifications was incorporated in 2010 as Mojang AB and is the one we are talking about in this article. Code Club AB have their own article, which is linked to in said section and there is a hatnote to clear up possible confusion. Regards. Lordtobi () 16:38, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
