Robby: I want to inplement a crafting system, like in Minecraft.
Here I will explain what Zooty said.
8BITMMO IS NOT A ****ING CLONE OF MINECRAFT. YOU CANNOT MAKE A CLONE OF SOMETHING THAT HASN'T EVER BEEN HEARD OF. THE REVIEWERS DONT KNOW THIS AND THUS THEY REPRESENT THE GAME REVIEWERS INGAME.
ROBBY NEVER SAID HE WANTED TO IMPLEMENT A SYSTEM LIKE MINECRAFT, THE SYSTEM HE PROPOSED WAS NOTHING LIKE MINECRAFT'S. NOW SHUT THE HELL UP BEFORE YOU MAKE ME RAGE FAR TOO MUCH!
Minecraft: Minecraft is a sandbox indie game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson and later developed and published by Mojang. It was publicly released for the PC on May 17, 2009, as a developmental alpha version and, after gradual updates, was published as a full release version on November 18, 2011.

And plus, I'm fairly certain HTMud, the first ancient original 8BitMMO was out at around 2002/2003 or so, probably, judging from the copyright.
You rarely ever make a copyright for something that doesn't exist as you can only copyright the thing, not the idea.
