Reason: long page, lots of mixed info
The menu screen comprises all of the buttons and text for both the main menu and the pause menu. It is the interface that allows players to change options such as the game's language and active resource pack, as well as create a new world or join a multiplayer server. When the main menu opens, the game's logo appears with a splash caption beneath it. The game's menu can be accessed anytime by pausing the game with the Esc key by default.

There is a 1 in 10000 chance for the title screen to display "Minceraft" instead of "Minecraft". Notch implemented this as an Easter egg, and kept it as a small secret, enjoying that he was the only one who knew of its existence. After stating a secret was in Minecraft undiscovered, the internet sought out to find it. Soon after, Notch posted "A Post-Mortem of Minceraft" on Reddit.
In crash logs, a reference to Minceraft may appear as a joke, stating "You should try our sister game, Minceraft!".
