I think it's pretty much a given that, with an audience of millions, there are many, many more individuals creating content as mods for a game than the handful of official developers... Especially when they're also tasked with fixing bugs and implementing other features that the fans have asked for, such as better mod tools. If all they did was spend their time creating new "content" like arrows made out of every single material in the game or 7 more types of stairs/fences/doors, then people would complain that there were no major new features or other support.

I agree that Mojang has not done enough to support Minecraft based on how much money it brings in, but you have to keep in mind they are still a very small indie studio trying to manage a project that has exploded to AAA+ popularity, while still wanting to move on to making other games. The mods are out there, so rather than try to compete with them, they're focusing on doing things that modders can't...

Why do we have to keep in mind that they're an indie studio, exactly? They publish the numbers touting their success, but they can't spend a few hundred thousand annually to give back to the gamers who gave so much to them.

Instead, the gamers have to pickup the slack to make the game half decent while getting paid nothing at all.
