      Only help if you can be helpful

      Hey All, A topic has come up of late in the IRC channel in regards to the general feel of the forums and the community that supports them. Things have progressed further than I would have liked with out this being addressed more publicly because I would much rather have snubbed this out sooner rather than later.. but I have been busy. Here is the general rule I would like people to follow: Wheaton's Law "Don't be a dick." Those of you from the IRC channel know that this is the only rule I ask people in there to follow and we generally have a good and lively time chatting about all manner of things. This is basic rule that just about everyone understands and I am going to expand it to the forums from here moving forward. If you can not help people in a helpful and polite manner then I simply ask you to stop. Now I generally take a back seat to moderating the forums as I like to participate in the suggestions forum fairly heavily at times and would rather do so as a forums user than a moderator. But I am also fairly well known for being the person who constantly puts their foot down and so I am stepping up and doing so on here. If you find yourself unable to respond to a message politely then I ask that you do not respond. This mostly focuses on the increasing level of hostility found within the Suggestion forum as well as the Server forum. I do not care if this is the 30th some odd time you have seen someone make the same suggestion. Or even if the new post on an older topic is one entry above the old one. I expect the members of this forum to respond politely to the user, new or old, and point to the older topic if it applies and even go the extra step to suggest they either add in new information or to summarize the outcome of the previous discussion based upon the new post's entry into it. That is what we are here for, that is why I close most topics instead of deleting them, so that they can be found and referenced down the road. The next topic is the slew of derailment attempts I have seen as of late. If you want to have fun and joke around that is what the off topic forum is for and pretty much anything goes there. I do not expect to read a suggestion thread and have to go through 3 pages of image memes people have shot back and forth. Quite simply this is a waste of my time to read and then have to clean up. Now for the summary. I am going to start taking a more active role, especially in policing the suggestion forum, and handing out warn levels to people whom I see doing this. These will be indiscriminate and applied not to just the first person who derails or is impolite on a topic or response, but to everyone whom follows the lead of that person. As I do not like doing things with out giving you all warning this post shall serve as that warning. If you have a desire to bring this topic up with me then I invite you to do so on the IRC channel. Lets raise the level of quality and grow the community. Let us not descend into the quality often found on the minecraft or league of legend forums. There is simply no need for that here. Be passionate about things, just do not be abusive.

      Offline Servers

      Recently I've seen a few server listings showing up on the first page of the Servers forum that have been closed for an extended period of time, but have recently gotten a reply from a new member who didn't realize the server is offline. To help prevent this from happening in the future, it would be greatly appreciated if you could use the report function on the original post of any servers that have been confirmed as offline, so that the topic may be locked. If you are the admin of a server and plan on taking the server offline, please use the report function on the original post of your topic to let the TFC Staff know that the topic should be locked. If you are the admin of a server that has a locked topic, and would wish to bring the server back online, please use the report function on the original post of the topic to let the TFC Staff know that the topic should be unlocked. As always, please remember to follow rule #3 of the servers forum and update your topic title to contain the version of TFC that the server is currently running. You can do so by editing the OP, and then clicking on "Use Full Editor."

  1. Who let this unobservant dumb-ass onto the forums?
  2. Quantum computers

    I wonder if Mars One will still be alive...
  3. Quantum computers

    Until we develop a practical method for forcing two particles to become entangled, quantum computing will accomplish relatively little. However, once quantum entanglement falls under our control it will enable us to effectively abuse the properties of two entangled particles and properly utilize quantum teleportation to some degree of consistency. At that point private organizations with the proper funding will be able to put quantum computing to good use, but even then it will take a considerable amount of time for quantum computing to reach a state where it is cost effective for consumers or even government use. Quantum computing isn't going to magically transport us to a world of hologram communicators and space-time manipulators. As I see it, quantum computing is simply an inevitable step in order for the connotations of Moore's Law to hold true. At the time when quantum computing becomes publicly available it will likely be no different than the progress in computing power which we have continued to make over the past 70 or so years. There will be about as much hype as a new iPhone release.

    Welcome to the funhouse.
  5. Dreaming of FTB with this mod

    Shh shh shh shh...... It's ok... I totally understand what you're getting at here. FTB would be way more fun, and epic, if its progression was more like TFC's progression. Gregtech helps a bit, but it would take a lot of work on greg's end to overhaul the base mechanics of the FTB mods in order to achieve anything near as fun as TFC.

    Lol it doesn't need to go that far. Why do you think porn sites can get away with a "Yes, I'm 18" button? Woo! Legal system!
  7. Terraria

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that I would like new players to be at least 18 years old. My friends and I are not kid-friendly. By only allowing legal adults to join us, we avoid various legal issues. And yes, I actually do think about these things, it's not JUST because I can't stand children.

  9. Terraria

    Hehe, I actually just had a long conversation with my main Terraria friend last night, one of the topics being whether or not to start new characters. We ended up at the same conclusion that you did, so this is good news. We'll have to get everyone's word that they aren't sneaking over any gold or anything from a previous character. I had to delete 24 platinum that one of my other friends brought onto the server last night (that kid just doesn't think things through). Anyways, in terms of who gets to join, I would like to do this first-come-first-serve, good ol' FIFO, but there are a few things I am hoping for which might change this. I want everyone to be able to play together and not just play on the same map. That means having free-time around the same time as everyone else. I'm not going to write down a schedule of when we are playing, I just want to be sure that I actually get a chance to play with everyone that's actually playing.It would be nice to have everyone in Skype, Ventrilo, or Razer Comms while we play. Currently I would prefer Skype due to the higher audio quality, but Ventrilo is also appealing as it would not require a group call to be remade constantly.I would prefer to play with people that I have, at the very least, heard of before. It is difficult to trust new people to not destroy the map.In terms of how we would be playing the game, it will be extremely communistic, and as the server host, I will be your dictator.Everything will be shared, with the exception of coins.If you collect someone's coins after their death, it would be courteous to give them back, but no one will force you to.Crystal Hearts and Mana Stars will be distributed evenly amongst the players currently online, if they want them. (Some players might not care about mana.) If a player falls behind in health we will give them all of the Crystal Hearts we find once they are online, until they catch up. I don't want someone to feel punished for having a lapse in free time.I want everyone's tools and armor to progress at the same rate, similar to how we will deal with Crystal Hearts and Mana Stars. I don't want people gearing up with full gold armor while someone else is stuck in iron. If you find a lot of gold, make yourself something, but don't leave the others behind.I have pretty bad OCD when it comes to storage and organization. It's not as bad with building, but it is still there a little bit. I ask that you try to be understanding of this, and know that if I lose it, and completely tear down and rebuild the storage room, it's nothing personal.If you would like to play with us (even if you aren't sure if you are able to) please provide the following information: Character Name: (The name you think you will use. No pressure.) Time Played: (0 is perfectly acceptable. I like new players.) Time Zone: (Please give your relation to GMT. I am currently GMT-5 due to daylight savings. Outside of daylight savings I would be GMT-6) Free Time: (Just give a rough estimate, and use your local time.) Skype: 18+: (We aren't exactly child friendly.) Example: Character Name: Ditto Time Played: 360 hours Time Zone: US Central GMT-5 Free Time: After 5pm and weekends. Skype: bobby.plude.8353 18+: Yes If you don't feel comfortable posting any of this information, you may send me a personal message.

    The TerraFirmaCraft mod... Requires that the player take time to learn the game, or quietly accept their extreme lack of knowledge.Focuses the game towards a more believable progression of tools and technology, based loosely on reality.Requires direct involvement from the player in order to accomplish most, if not all, tasks.Requires that more thought be given to the management and collection of resources.Generally results in a slower progression to a state of "end game"Has no wooden tools.Begins with the collection of small stones and sticks.Requires an axe to chop trees.Requires intentional collection of saplings.Contains different types of wood/stone, and all are not created equal.Forces the player to take additional precautions, most notably whilst mining. This is all I can think of, with my limited knowledge on the current state of the mod. I hope this helps. <3

    Nice builds. Somewhat similar to my current style of building, though I plan to change styles with the new patch release. Don't worry about scheduling at the moment, because the patch doesn't have an official release date at this time. It is rumored to hit around the end of May, but it's just a rumor. Currently Terraria servers are limited to 8 players. 3-4 of those slots are reserved for myself, 2 friends, and my lady. This may change by the time the patch hits, but as it stands, I am looking at bringing in 4 additional players. I haven't decided if I want to start with a new character or use my current one.
  12. Terraria

    So there are a few of us at least :3 Anyone down for some extended co-op action when the new patch hits?
  13. Terraria

    I got Terraria when it first came out. Several friends and I played the hell out of that game and I loved every minute of it. After a long break we have started playing again, and a massive update is in the works. The update is rumored to release near the end of May. I'm curious if anyone else still plays and enjoys Terraria. It couldn't hurt to have more people to play with, especially when it comes time for Hardmode bosses. It's also just fun to talk about.

    I am now live over at Currently streaming League of Legends. I will, however, continue to take suggestions in stream chat.
