    Updating title to avoid conflict with Minecraft Earth threads. :) Thanks in advance for understanding!

    I like this idea. Sort of. Maybe give them 2 minutes total, or give them a cape for hosting a party.

    Or, maybe the first few thousand people to do it get the cape!

    This is the best idea I've ever heard of. I myself always wanted a Minecon cape except I coun't and won't be able to assist to the event due to where I live (Minecon has always been too far away from me). Being able to get a cape through internet is what I was waiting for: I'd watch the event and get one as if I was there! They could also make it so you can purchase the cape for a short time, I'm sure lots of people would buy it (me included).

    I thought of an idea of how capes could return and went to add it and noticed there's already a post similar to my idea. So here's what I thought. You could have players visit the MINECON Earth site and have a little section on the page for MINECON Earth Cape. You could then have players click a button, sign into their Minecraft/Mojang account and have the cape added (this is for Java Edition). If at all possible you could also have a button for those who play Bedrock which will have them log in to their Microsoft account to have the cape added and displayed on normal skins. Going on, adding to this, I posted the idea on the Official Minecraft Discord and got told that it would make the capes not have the special feeling and so I came up with the idea that then capes could be given out to those who go to a MINECON Earth Viewing Party or Official Community Event (that's holding a MINECON Earth event).

    Not to ruing your idea but that would lead to an overflow of players with the cape and it would end up being a crap cosmetic. I think that older players deserve to get capes

    I think capes becoming crap cosmetics isn’t going to happen because of this: 

    1. By far not every player watches the Minecon Earth livestream
    2. I rarely see any Minecon capes when I play on servers, this would probably then be 20-50 instead of 1 per 1000 players. 
    3. Also, a own unique OptiFine cape is a lot cooler. Those would still be very rare in the community, making them not being ”crap cosmetics”. 
    4. If you don’t like the current cape, you may not press that link.

    Voying out the cape would be really cool. Just maybe on the website before the Minecon Earth event takes place. 

    Also, Minecon Earth capes shouldn’t have a very detailed desing, but the Minecon one should.

    How about if it was an official skin on Minecraft, that way EVERYONE would get a cape. Or create a mod about it 😉.

    If your on bedrock this won’t work so maybe it would be a free download on the marketplace during the event

    I mean, everyone wants a cape/cloak. I think if there's any way of making it accessible to users that really want it (if that is what mojang and/or the people on the minecraft team even want to do, seeing as they are currently so rare and carry a lot of weight) I can't really think of a better way to do it personally. Not to say this is the best or only way, but I do think that the vast majority of people who play and care about the game enough to deserve the cape/cloak are the ones dedicated so much that they block out time to watch minecon earth. But again, who knows if they even have intentions on ever doing any more cape/cloak "events".

    I would love this to be a thing. You are technically attending the event when you're watching it live and this would be much easier for people who can't go there either because of an injury or if it's a serious illness. I've always wondered what it would be like to have my Minecon Earth Cape in Minecraft.

    Honestly I feel as if they want capes to be rare and even though I think your idea would be cool it’s probably not going to happen unless they change their stance on capes. Personally I am hoping for a way to link your Mojang and Microsoft account so you can transfer your capes from java to bedrock.

    The link would be available for the entire live stream and taken down at the very end

    What about every 3 minecon lives there is a cape link

    You should have a link (hidden) while big Minecraft events to buy limited number of capes.
    They have to use the capes for something...

    well Bedrock edition doesnt have any capes yet so that would be good to add to the list

    Maybe people who get featured in panels should get a cape?

    Maybe to make sure that you are watching the Livestream to get the cape, it won't be in the description or on Twitter, but rather in the video, so like in the top corner making it so you must watch the stream to get the cape. Also maybe keep it on screen for a total of 30 minutes. So maybe it goes like this...

    1. The user will manually have to enter the link. (So maybe a redsto.ne link?)
    2. The user logs in their Mojang account (may have to upgrade to Mojang account if they are still on a Minecraft Premium account)
    3. User fills out a reCaptcha (preventing bots)
    4. User has their cape!

    Hopefully, this works out because we all want them capes!

    maybe make the cape cost a dollar so that, because if im not mistaken, you had to pay to get in to the original Minecon to get a cape

    Maybe the capes can be included in the new 1.13.0.15 in the custom skin creater feature.

    RAC1000 commented

    Also maybe even capes that are banners, and you could create your own banner cape design.

    Ooh AND they could make a built in in game system so they can know you voted and give you a cape, also they could change the default layout of the background for the day of minecon, ALSO they could add a button in some menu for information- (oh wait... minectaft.net🙄) never mind
