I'm hesitant to mess around with a personal article, so I'll just leave this here for someone more experienced to integrate it in. Miner Key 15:14, 11 November 2011 (UTC)!/notch/status/134607184469295104


How do you pronounce his last name? Is it like the English word "Person" or something more like "Pierce-son?" Or something completely different?

I would say it like Per Son --Haxelnut 06:28, 27 August 2010 (PDT)

It's a bit like the English word "person", but imagine a British accent. You know how final r's are dropped? Implement this on the first syllable. The e, however, sounds like the e in "bed", rather than the usual sound you get in that way. As for the second syllable, it's like an sh sound but the tongue is curled up a bit, like a stereotypical Russian/Hindi accent, or a sound you may hear a bit in Swedish if you're familiar with it. The o is like the sound you get for o's in English, but it's not a diphthong. Imagine saying "oh" but cut short halfway through the syllable. I know, lengthy description, but I'm very knowledgeable in linguistics and that's the best I can do without throwing IPA up. xD If you still didn't get it, check out this audio clip I found on Google. - JWhitt 07:29, 5 September 2010 (CDT)
As I wrote in the page itself, it's "pair-son" or "pear-son", as described by Notch himself. Citation inline in the page. --meioziz 16:47, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

At last![edit]

Finally, a proper page about Notch on this wiki. Can I suggest we delete or archive the current talk page, as it is now all out of date and irrelevant? --DannyF1966 14:38, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

why dont we have a topic on the "ghoststory" of Notchs brother, Herobrine, its true notch has a bro. So why isnt this included???

For the sake of the community and how they like jokes, would it be feasible/practical to have a sub-page of Notch for the joke-related info? --JonTheMon 15:24, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
I think, this time, maybe not. after the mass-spam, it seems unlikely. however, you can archive a version in your Userspace. I have only archived Notch Time, as the rest seemed like rubbish. --Kizzycocoa 15:26, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
I would like to vote for Notch time staying (or on a separate page), as that is still useful (and not fake) information about dates promised by Notch, and the date it actually occurred. The VDC keeps the Valve time article and they don't like nonsense pages, so I think it is still appropriate for the wiki. –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 15:38, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
I agree. I find it funny, but still semi-serious.--Kizzycocoa 16:02, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
I want a sub page for the facts about Notch from before. I love the useless jokes!--Reed501 22:41, 3 January 2011 (UTC)


I want the jokes back.

Pretty pointless... --YaYaBinksMinecraft 19:11, 4 January 2011

Xvox's edits[edit]

Should we allow jokes on the Notch page? I'm sure this is a violation of Wiki Rule #7 AND #19. Drenay 14:50, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

HEEEELLLLLLPPPPP--Xvox 01:35, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

 No. If you want to make childish jokes, do it in your namespace. –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 01:52, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
We used to have this page full of jokes and it was horrible. It took me about an hour or two to rewrite the entire page and I will not let that effort go to waste.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 14:10, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Well, dear Quatroking, just because YOU edited a page doesn't make it better. You should think about the wiki's benefits, and not how hard YOU worked to do something. That was a great section that everyone enjoyed besides you and a small minority. You should have at least gave us the option to VOTE whether or not we want it to be removed. The least you can do now is to give us a special page for little jokes and giggles. Yes. I KNOW this is the Minepedia and not the Mine-jokebook, but having that section removed just because YOU thought it's useless only proves that YOU are an DOUCHE. TheYeIIowDucK 17:16, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
While I agree that me editing the page does not grant the page godmode, the page was rewritten because it barely covered anything about Notch at all, more than 90% of the page was fiction. All I was saying is that I don't want to turn the page back into a horrible page full of crappy jokes and whatnot, covering nothing about Notch himself at all. This wiki is meant to document Minecraft, including Mojang and its creator, not as a jokebook like you said yourself. If you want fiction so bad head off to your own userpage. We are not a work of fiction, and there's no need to yell at me for that.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 19:36, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
I must concur in part to the above. In the edit field, you are explicitly told "If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly or redistributed by others, do not submit it".
As for jokes, I  Semi-Agree to having jokes (if it is up for debate). However, only under some conditions. For example, any "chuck norris" facts, should go in like, a separate article. Perhaps Notch/Jokes. As for smaller jokes, such as noting Notch Time, stating him as self-proclaimed god, or other minor touches should be allowed, as long as they are small and minor and do not overrule the wiki page's main purpose.
But there cannot be an article plastered with stupid jokes. That cannot happen again.--Kizzycocoa 17:38, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
I think that should be kept to the userspace, linked to only if it's REALLY good (ie. Notch Time). On this case specifically, Xvox's edits are just vandalism. They detract from the article. The only humor that should be kept on mainspace in general are quotes from the person themselves.
Also, TheYeIIowDucK, personal attacks don't help you out here. Just sayin'. --Gnu32 17:45, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
I just want to make clear, my previous edit only supported a small part of his comment, which has happened in the past, however that has been discussed to death. The insults, however are unacceptable, and such behaviour needs to stop now, before bans start being handed out.--Kizzycocoa 17:56, 21 February 2011 (UTC)


Dooes Notch really drop red apples? Or is it just a joke? Hello? Is anyone there? ._. 22:33, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes he does. –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 22:51, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Seems a while funny about Notch dropping red apples!--ChaosThePerfect 21:14, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Adding pic of Notch with his third hat[edit]

Should we add a picture with Notch and his new (third) hat? --Tempelchat 13:20, 5 May 2011 (UTC)



IMHO you've got the right aneswr!

happy birthday notch have a great day!!!! -mojang_jimmy

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NOTCH! Your game is the best one there is!!!!!!-molassascookieman

Happy-Bday! -ChaosThePerfect

Notable thing[edit]

In one of ChilledChaos's Creature server videos, he was using /say to act as if he was god. At one point, they said something about Notch (they just said the name, really), and he said that was his human name. Some time later, he asked if that is impersonating someone, if he can get in trouble for doing what he did. I assume that you are ok that he did that? LikeLakers2 22:02, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

before i played minecraft the only thing i liked to do was drink pepsi max Scott619 06:53, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

When Notch adds torches, can he add a setting to make it so they don't burn out?[edit]

I have NO idea how to email-twitter-whatever to him, so can someone do it for me, or give me info if he is planning it? PWETTY PWETTY PWEASE? (Insert Cute Face Here.) Eviscerator11 06:34, 5 August 2011 (UTC)Eviscerator11

Pumpkins in Mine Craft[edit]

hey i read that in the future you will be able to plant pumpkins in Mine Craft

i was wondering when will you be able to please respond asap thanks and keep up the good work :)

user name is Lucario187

I'm pretty sure notch won't respond to you here. Why don't you go tweet him? He's quite active in responding in twitter. Jtlcr777 00:17, 24 August 2011 (UTC)


I was reading this and it looks as though it has been vandalized! can an admin revert it back to it's original state? I think that the other Mojang employee pages could have been vandalized as well. Zoythrus 03:07, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

And it keeps being vandalized too... "update it fat man.!."? Yup, vandalism. --Anonymous MC player

this wiki makes me want to throw the hell up. -another anonymous MC player

I tried to revert it, but I got stuck in the damned Captcha loop. And I don't think these guys are going to stop anytime soon. Admins need to revert and lock the page like NOW! 16:15, 20 November 2011 (UTC)Hamish

Visiting servers[edit]

How about adding a line that says: Notch occasionally drops by to visit different servers. I just met him today lol :D - Asterick6 03:28, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Game not in the list?[edit]

I found a game on Steam that Notch helped make and noticed there is no mention of it on his page. Throex TALK|CONT 19:17, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Notch didn't have anything to do with that game though? –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 19:26, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes he did, you can look at the trailer to the game and it says that Alexey and Markus helped each other make this game. Then before "BTM" flashes for the first time you see a creeper face and everything. Notch helped mae this game and release it last year in August. Throex TALK|CONT 19:31, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
I have actually just bought it and played it. Its a nice puzzle game that includes parts of minecraft. You collect certain types of blocks and then at times you replace those blocks in order to get out. Very good game and its only $1.69 in the steam store today. Throex TALK|CONT 19:50, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
From what I've seen, Notch is featured as a character in the game's world, but he never actually did any work on the game. –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 19:56, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

After playing it, it has a mincraft feel to it. The puzzle system where you can rebuild makes me feel like minecraft. I think maybe he just had inspiration towards helping this Alexey guy out. He is a huge puzzle game designer. Throex TALK|CONT 20:00, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
The game was not developed by Notch or Alexey Pajitnov! It was INSPIRED by the games the two are known for developing(Minecraft and Tetris, respectively) The game was developed by William David and Guillaume Martin(Swing Swing Submarine is the indie game company they run) -- 03:57, 27 March 2012 (UTC)


I got banned from a server for no good reason and I need Notch's approval to unban me. Is that possible?

Fawful117: I HAVE CHORTLES! 05:11, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

1. Notch has no control over what happens on other people's servers.
2. Neither do we.
3. Talk to the server owner/admins; they're the only ones who can ban/unban users. -- Orthotope 05:37, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Notch's first game![edit]

Im pretty sure he programmed his first game at the age of 9, not AGE OF 7! On the BAFTA Game Awards, when Notch was coming to do his speech, the announcer sad

He coded his first game at the age of 9, a text adventure

Notch quit?[edit]

My friends tell me notch quit mojang, it this true?

No. Notch quit development on Minecraft, he did not quit Mojang. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:03, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
After Mojang was bought by Microsoft, Notch now quit Mojang for real (the wiki should be updated to reflect that status). Sonicwave (talk) 23:47, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
No. Mojang said that Notch, Carl, and Jakob are leaving once the deal is finalized. The deal hasn't been finalized yet, so I oppose. --BDJP007301 (t|c)

Wurm Online?[edit]

So under Notch's works why is there no mention of Wurm; I mean this is the game that pretty much inspired Minecraft.


How about here ask questions?hmm..... I know it is stupid but I love Minecraft!ok my question! Will really Notch add any Emerald armor and tools?Imagine to be enchantable!!! --ChaosThePerfect 21:17, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Drops more than just an red apple.[edit]

It's the same as "The Player" Plus a red apple. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (Talk) 09:39, 20 June 2012 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Yes but that is way too obvious to mention. Anyone would realize that. Hower64 12:32, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
We could add "inventory", but we'll assume that readers know that Notch is a player (entity). - Asterick6 (talk) 01:50, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Top Notch[edit]

Notch received a one of a Kind hat called the "Top Notch" from Valve for the Game Team Fortress 2. Notch said that people didn't know he was the real Notch in Team Fortress 2 and subsequently tweeted about his problem. Valve Listened and gave him a personal hat. I can't find the source for the tweet but he did make a blog post about it.

His Blog Post: [1]

Golden Name[edit]

The page says Notch's name in game is golden, but it's cleary false. Notch was seen in multiplayer and didn't have any golden name. 02:18, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

That probably was not Notch then. NightstormKitty 21:05, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Notch's birthplace[edit]

In Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, Notch says that he was born in a small Swedish town called Ystad and lived there until he was seven years old. Heymister14 01:00, 29 July 2012 (UTC)heymister14

Correction: Notch was born in Stockholm. Heymister14 20:47, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Are You Guys Serious?[edit]

I honestly would like a joke page as there was before, entitled "Notch." After all, anyone researching Markus would know to search his real name instead of his username! Can't we just put a disclaimer with a link to this page? Notch has become a part of Minecraft's community lore as a god, in a way similar to the memetic Herobrine. I don't see why we can't just have a seperate page for it. 01:20, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Because Notch and Markus Persson are the same person. Even when this page was titled "Notch", it wasn't a joke page; when it was renamed the content was not changed substantially. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 01:49, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
It was a joke page and the talk for it was archived under a special, rather opinionated, name. About a year and a half after Quatroking made it serious is when Kizzycocoa renamed it. It was way before my time here, but looking at the page, it would be pretty neat if we have that old version on the "Notch" page with an {{about}} directing the user to this page, explaining that the Notch article is "Chuck Norris" themed while the real name article is serious. I doubt you, or any other admin, would accept the return of that, but I see this subject as a very low profile version of Herobrine, where in the past, herospam was reduced significantly by the creation of the article. No one's really clamoring for "Notchspam", but if the community likes it, we could maintain a joke page. --User:Kanegasi User_talk:KanegasiSpecial:Contributions/Kanegasi 21:27, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
I could only support (and only in the most tenuous sense of the word) such a joke page as a subpage in someone's userspace, like the Herobrine page used to be. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 22:16, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Stuff to be added[edit]

1. A note that says notch's is outdated. 2. That the QR code on Notch's Twitter icon displays the text "I Love You" (ATM) --007a83 (Talk|Contribs) 00:10, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Wurm Online[edit]

You forgot to mention the development of Notch's second largest game, Wurm Online ( This is the game that inspired the creation of minecraft. Wurm has many similar features to Minecraft, like breeding and mycelium. Page from Wurmpedia, the Wurm wiki: 21:21, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Notch apparently hasn't had a golden name since Classic, at least according to SethBling. This information is very outdated.

notch's drop[edit]

In a semi recent mindcrack video by youtuber Docm77 called notch's block he killed notch and he did not drop an apple. The code might have been removed by someone when he left minecraft

Notch's age[edit]

In the trivia it says "On June 1, 2011, Notch posted on Twitter that he was 25 years old.[2] 25 is 32, which is indeed his age." but it is no longer 2011, so it should be corrected to "On June 1, 2011, Notch posted on Twitter that he was 25 years old.[2] 25 is 32, which was indeed his age.". Minor thing, cannot edit since the page is protected. --KnightMiner (talk|contribs) 21:47, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Killing notch[edit]

Please note that when the markus persson page says

Drops: Apple

It DOES NOT mean that when he dies (in life, not minecraft) he drops a apple. If you log onto notch's profile on minecraft, and if you die, you will drop an apple.

But for all I know, Markus might be carrying a apple as we speak –Preceding unsigned comment was added by XXfreefire (talkcontribs) at 20:25, 15 December 2014 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
