      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. [0.79.28.908] MisfitMC TerraFirmaCraft Server - Whitelist

    According to the admins, MisfitMC TFC server is shutting down. I will never put that much work into a project that I have no control over again. Thanks to everyone who did play on the server. We had something pretty special there for a while.
  2. What binds players together

    A shared attitude/goal among players really helps. If you want to encourage more community involvement, the the rewards for working together must be much greater than what's available to an individual. Similar to what the good MMO's do. You can play most of the game by yourself, but to get the really good stuff/beat the bosses, you need to team up. In the end though it's all about personality. If you want a server of helpful friendly people then you need to set the tone. Make people feel appreciated and welcome. So many servers fail on this and have to resort to gimmicks to keep players. I was on a great server for the last 2 years, where even the staff loved playing on it and it showed. I have an official 1.10.2 mod pack on Curse right now that makes it impossible for a single player to take on the mobs/dungeons by themselves. Work together or die. This is just on normal difficulty. Once I've done some more tweaking, it will take a party of 4 or more to take on any of the challenges. D&D style. Great thread BTW. I've done a lot of thinking and wondering on this same topic lately.
  3. Elemental damage types & weapons

    A fire would just be the most visible source of energy. You can pull it from other sources as well, the higher the base temperature of the item(tree, stone, animal), the more energy available. Anything above absolute zero will have some atomic motion(energy). We might think of a stone laying on the ground as "cold", yet it is relatively warm on the Kelvin scale. Once you have this energy, you can use it as you will. Making flame would just be one application. Energy can be converted into any type of matter. There's even an equation for it. E=MC2 or Energy = Mass x the speed of light squared. With the ability to manipulate energy/matter you could produce any number of "magical" effects. Freezing someone(removing their body heat), or turning the ground at their feet to some other form, like lava or quicksand. Or even the long sought after Philosopher's Stone, turning lead/iron etc, into gold. So there's no real need to destroy an object to release it's energy. More a siphoning of it rather than a total conversion. The details of how this is accomplished would need to remain unexplained. Otherwise it wouldn't be magic, but science.
  4. [0.79.28.908] MisfitMC TerraFirmaCraft Server - Whitelist

    I believe that it is, but I'm no longer on the staff there. If you are registered on the forum, the best option would be to PM one or more of the admins to get their attention.
  5. [Solved] Cannot Place Horizontal Support Beams

    All I can think of is that the items between the supports are interfering somehow. I've never had things in between them, but I'll give it a try. Creative world, right? Edit: It's caused by not having enough beams in inventory. The game mechanic will only place one beam if you are pulling from the creative tab. It only sees one, even though it's unlimited.
  6. [Unofficial TFC]TechNodefirmacraft Official Server

    Nice. Do I need to make a new application for this, or is my old one still good? Edit: NVM. I seem to still be white listed.
  7. Super Hardcore TFC (Wurmcraft)

    Nice job putting all these different mods together. When it says extreme, it's not joking. Can't see at night without light source. Mobs have 20x times HP, and that's just the start. See how far I get. lol
  8. [Solved] Placing metal sheets on non firebrick blocks.

    Thanks. I'll check it out. As to tips and tricks, I'm still in the apprentice builder stage. lol Some of our players are doing great stuff though. I'm going to try and make a video once the village is a little farther along.
  9. [Solved] Placing metal sheets on non firebrick blocks.

    Very nice. Really like the Cabinet. This is the first time I've reached colored steel and had some extra metal to play with. I only play survival and it's too valuable early game. Looking forward to playing around with it some more, as now my main focus is just building stuff. Do you have to place the sheets on the block before you chisel it, or will it allow you to place it afterwords?
  10. [Solved] Placing metal sheets on non firebrick blocks.

    Nice! Strange, in the year I've been reading this board, I'd not seen mention of using these sheets decoratively before. I'm using Platinum sheets as a faux mirror behind my bar. I'll post a pic when done.
  11. [Solved] Placing metal sheets on non firebrick blocks.

    I switched from recipe mode to cheat mode in NEI and it works fine now. Weird. I'd never heard anyone mention these before. They're really quite beautiful. Thanks for checking. I really appreciate it.
  12. I tested this in creative and it worked fine. I placed different metal's sheets on different blocks and the different textures and colors looked amazing. I tried to do this in survival and no go. Is this deliberately disabled and if so, can it be reconfigured somehow on our server? Thanks.
  13. Yeah. With all the spam in the forum today it seems like they could use a moderator. Especially so Kitty can focus on more important matters like finishing school. BTW, I don't want the job. I'm retired. lol
  14. Tips on moving cows

    Water skiing cows. lol
  15. Full forum requires user account?

    Not enough info.
