Mojang hires community members

In a post on their official blog, Minecraft developers Mojang have added four prominent members of their own community to their ranks.

The four main developers of bukkit, a community-based group focused on helping out with Minecraft‘s server implementation, have officially been hired by the company to improve server support and “build a fresh server API” for the immensely-popular sandbox title.

“We want more than just modding, and these guys have always had server admins in mind when developing their additions to the game,” said Minecraft lead developer Jens Bergensten on the hires. “We hope that this will help the quality of Minecraft multi-player to improve, both for large and private family servers, while still being able to add fun stuff for the bigger audience.”

See, folks? Work hard and your talents will be noticed. The more you know…
