Mining, the thing the game is about. Mining supplies coal, a fuel, iron, a useful material, gold, an almost useless material, lapis lazuli, a dye and enchanting material, and, diamonds, the valuable resource that we all love--or do we?

Mining is (almost) entirely necessary for progression. It is even in the name of the game. But do you like it?

I wish there was an in between. I do not like it but I don't hate it. I recognize it as a part of the game and can admire it in the beginning stages, but after 10 minutes of mining, it's annoying.

I do. I actually find it kind of relaxing.

Yes, mining is an essential part of the game, that we can't live without. (unless you're one of those all-creative-mode people) I don't think I could imagine a single day without me going down into the mines on my survival world, and mining away whilst listening to music or a podcast, etc.

No. Mining is boring and dangerous.

I spend practically all of my time in creative mode so I don't really do any mining

I far prefer mining to caving as a way of gathering mineral resources, but consider farming to be superior to both…

which being said, some forms eg area removal mining (what generally gets called strip mining despite there being a roof) & obsidian mining can be medative activities.

Otherwise my preferred form of 'mining' is digging out areas intended to house some build (hard to beat >100% efficiencies :P )

I love mining, but, ahem, correction, lapis lazuli is a queen and should be treated as such - I mean, come on, in the block form it's just such a top notch decorating material! The highest of qualities.

Really though, mining is great, but redstone and lapis ore are one of my favorites to mine because you break it and BOOM explosion of materials.

It's a bit of a chore for me. I feel there needs a bit of change.

Maybe it's me, though, maybe I need to try to experiment with Redstone/make minecarts or something.

I mean, saying mining is bad is like saying having to walk as a player is bad.

Well mining is not my most favorite part of the game but I don't not like it, so I guess the answer is yes.

Mining makes everything you build 300x more satisfying.

You'd hate like a 1/3 of the game if you hated mining/resource gathering lol

For the beard of Durin! YEAH!

Digging through the map, creating large galeries which cross the map, searching for diamonds.
Minning to create underground bases, houses, structures, cities...
To mine to find emerald and diamonds oh yeah, you know that sublime emotion when you see the ore in front of you, with your fortune pickaxe ready to get it.

Honestly, I've mined so much in my life because I played survival most of the time and now I sincerely hate it xD
It's super tedious and feels like a complete waste of time when you could get the ressources in creative for free and almost instantly and start building right away. But apparently only I think this way xD
But hey, then you simply didn't mine enough yet :P

I actually enjoy mining, I find going on crusades through the caverns and old mines with an unquenchable thirst for diamonds rather enjoyable.
