If you’ve been on any social media site lately, you may have noticed the hashtag “#StopTheMobVote” trending lately. But what is it?

It comes down to Minecraft

Every year since 2020, gaming company “Mojang” announces a “Mob Vote”.

The vote is held amongst players on the Minecraft Twitter account, where they vote for three new “mobs” – creatures in the game.

What do they want?

The Minecraft community have “had enough”. They want Mojang to “stop being lazy” and release all three mobs at once and stop creating discourse among the community.
