Default Mojang using capes as thank-yous

One of Mojang's ways of saying thank-yous to those who help improve Minecraft seems to be giving their accounts capes. Mojang staff have capes. Some of the mod developers whose mods have been added to the game have capes. Those who turned up to Minecon have capes.

The latest addition is a special translator's cape. These have been given to 29 randomly selected contributors to the Minecraft translation community that provides us Minecraft in languages like Pirate speak and Quenya (as well as less common languages like French and Spanish).

ps. 'Sorontar' is Quenya in case you are not a native speaker

ahhh so you two are a speaker of the language of hte elves.

Sadly I am a speaker of Dwarfish (not to be mis typed as Dwarvish the horrid Psudo english butchery of hte true spelling) and as such can only record it here as a series of runes, which would be intelligable to but the most decerning reader.

I truely wish. Sindarin, Quenya, Telerin, I have seen them all, but there are few that can sing the songs of the First Children. If I could, I would rep you for knowing about the dwarves and the runes/cirth. Though tengwar are still beautiful. Pity Minecraft doesn't use them.

I have looked upon Sidhelien as well, but that is another reality that I feel will not appear in Minecraft.

Have any of you considered contributing to the localisation/translation of Minecraft?

I'm kind of at a disadvantage, given that the developers are Swedish as well
