Actually, I'm going to play Devil's Advocate and say that the MineCraft stuff does deserve to be considered art if it is done well. It is, after all, no different than, say, building a two foot long suspension bridge out of legos, for example.
For some reason, whenever I see threads whining about shitty My Little Pony art, I can't help but feel obliged to post pony artwork. Then I realized that my good friend =MasterPlanner has the right idea about going about things.
So instead of shitty MS Paint Ponies, have some decent pony vectors.

No fucking kidding. Before you log in you see some pretty decent art, then you log in and you end up with crudely drawn figures of cartoon characters and a shit-load of "My Little Pony". The sad part is those people wouldn't know what a real horse actually looks like if they saw one in their front lawn. Sometimes it becomes an eyesore.
Well okay, you can go down that route if you like, but that's extrapolating it pretty far. I think it was Roger Ebert that said videogames could never be classed as art. In the case of Minecraft I'd have to agree. I mean, I spent 50 plus hours on my dissertation, but that doesn't make it art.
Yes, they're very detailed and you're obviously highly knowledgeable about the subject at hand. This one is particularly impressive: [link]
I'm not questioning your artistic capability, I'm just of the opinion that screenshotting a house made of wood built in a videogame [that's a shameless copy of an older game, actually] is not really art in my eyes. It's just an opinion.
I've got nothing against legitimately good pony art. Minecraft pixel art isn't that bad, I'm just not sure it qualifies as art. I agree fully with you on the MSpaint shit though. Seriously, I've seen things...
Now, to adress your issues: "Oh hai thurr can I has cheeseburger? :3 :3 :3 :3" Meh "this is my original character who looks exactly like i copied it off the front cover of a final fantasy game... DO NOT STEAL" ANNOYING "I've drawn twilight sparkle holding a pokeball" What is the problem here? "I made a giant sonic the hedgehog on minecraft" Probably build with horrible architecture, only awesome because minecraft "I did my hair a bit like cloud from FF7, here's an out of focus picture of it" Annoying "THX 4 20 WATCHERS LULZLULZLULZ THX GUISE here's a doodle of Amy Lee from Evanescence in the style of sonic the hedgehog to celebrate :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3" I don't even... "I went to a shop.... and bought mariokart for gamecube HOW FUCKING RETRO AM I??!! OMFGZZZZZ heres 3836284 pictures of it!" Annoying
