Premise A: Mods are allowed on the MCGamer network if they do not give an unfair advantage

Premise B: ToggleSneak does argubly give some unfair advantages

Premise C: The only reasonable objection to allowing ToggleSneak is that it frees up keys

Premise D1: Armor Status is an allowed mod

Premise D2: Armor status frees up you having to press your inventory key all of the time

Premise E1: Direction HUD is an allowed mod

Premise E2: Direction HUD frees up the f3 key to check for direction

Premise F: Freeing up keys is not a valid argument for banning a mod

Premise G: There is no valid argument for having ToggleSneak bannable

Conclusion: ToggleSneak should be allowed




Critique the argument as you wish. If you make a good enough counter argument I will respond.

Just to let you know, I am not for nor against ToggleSneak being allowed, it does not effect me. I do not see the purpose of you giving those examples. Armor HUD is nearly useless in MCGamer, I've been playing MCGamer for a while, I think I've checked my armor status a half dozen times, it does not give in any way an unfair advantage for the people that have downloaded it. For direction HUD, yes, I do check whether or not I am going East, West, North or South a lot, but in reality I just click F3 and look up and it tell me where I am going, people with direction HUD just have to look up, how in the world does direction HUD give any sort of advantage to anyone who downloads it. They don't have to click F3, boo hoo.

You're really intelligent and didn't completely miss the point.

  • neither for or against
  • if it makes the community happy, then I don't see why not
I think it needs absolute community input (it's definitely been shown on the forums). If we could have a poll run in-game, it'll show the true statistics (not everyone uses the forums).

Also
  • Toggle Sneaking Mod - Allows you to sneak while typing or in a chest.
Never-the-less, it seems a bit silly to ban the mod for only this reason. People probably wouldn't even use the sneak part, only really the sprint feature.

Nice arguments made

Unless Minecraft has changed drastically since I last played, sneaking hides player tags. Users utilising this mod based of the information presented in this thread would then have an unfair advantage compared to the vanilla users whose usernames would display when accessing chests etc.

Who am I kidding? Idec

EDIT: Questionable argument presented as well. Great seeing a "logical" argument contradict itself. Tene specifically, if you state it doesn't give an advantage; why do you even care? To be honest, I think you just love "critiquing" this community consistently.

Obviously

Hilarious that you actually think hiding your name when accessing chests is an advantage. Both badlion and kohi allow this mod and never have this

It's not contradicting anything if you actually read the premises. It's showing how having toggle sneak bannable is.
