      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. I look forward to your update. I'd like to start a new world with your pack. I didn't think I would like it, but I've been enjoying it while watching CilantroGamer's TFC series.
  2. Anvil Newb

    As a starter tip, find a tool that requires the fewest unique combination of steps. For instance, only two hits to line up the arrows. I find that helps build up my confidence and understanding of smithing. Even if you don't care about that particular tool right away, it's a good starting point. Also, did you notice that the green and red buttons at the bottom move your arrow back and forth different amounts? Without worrying about the outcome, practice pushing each one to see how far they move your arrow each time. Remember, if your buttons don't work, your ingot's too cool, or you need a new hammer! (That's why I usually put a metal hammer in so it lasts a long time.) Have you read the wiki on anvil mechanics? It's really quite helpful. Read through it and watch the video:
  3. Single player world gallery

    That looks great. Love the inside with those log beams. How are they semi-rounded? Resource pack? Shaders?
  4. Hey lilmamabear, I uploaded a video for you. Whoops, sorry! By the way, we've found a bunch of different ores around. We're looking good.
  5. Prospector pick usage.

    If you're just starting to learn with the prospector's pick, I recommend working with an ore sample close to the surface. This is just so you don't get discouraged with all the digging, supporting, mining, etc. And if it's a nice, flat surface with no obstacles, then it's so easy.
  6. As much as possible, it might be fun to join/start on the new world at the same time. I dunno. It might be too difficult to coordinate schedules/time zones.
  7. I've been on the server every week. I was even on there a week ago with milhouse. However, I've been traveling A LOT. Since the server's been quiet, I figured I'd go on a big exploration trip. Granted, I'm completely out of food. Gonna have to start eating seaweed. Ew, gross! Check out my "comment" on our Enjin website...rather long...sorry...2 parts even!
  8. While you're doing maintenance, wanna upgrade us to the latest build 79.25? We're kind of behind the times!
  9. Shiphty's Shiftless Slog (A photo journal)

    I think the hickory and oak woods look good together; good balance of dark and light. But if you can find some birch trees, you may like that.
  10. Ceramic bowls - another tedium

    I like the idea of keeping "pottery part of the game throughout all of the tiers." I always thought pottery was seen as simply an early-game mechanic. I'm glad to see it's not meant to be like that because I like digging out clay, collecting clay, and making things with clay. (Thanks again for the clay flower pots!)
  11. I was on there last night for a couple hours looking for minerals. I had no problems with the server, but tons of problems finding kaolinite. Why so hard to find, Kao?
  12. [Solved] Hot water, what is it?

    One of these days, I'm gonna build a home around/near one of them, and treat the hot spring like my own personal hot tub. After a long night of fighting, it would sure feel good.
  13. How did you find out about TFC?

    I heard about TFC when Etho mentioned in an episode that he'd like to play it sometime. And then when he started playing it, I knew I would love it. But it wasn't until Generikb and BdoubleO started their series that I finally took the time to download it. (I couldn't stand by while they butchered the mod with their derpyness and ineptitude; I had to finally play it for myself. Love watching those two, though!)
  14. [Solved] How do I find silver?

    I don't think there's a secret to finding silver. In fact, I think you're pretty lucky to have so much nickel, since it only spawns in one rock type. Silver spawns in two rock types: granite and gneiss. Find one of these covering a large area and prospect the crap out of it. These rock types can spawn below the surface layer, though, so you should dig some shafts at random intervals across your world to discover the underlying rock layers. I've covered over 10,000 block ranges, and still haven't come across nickel or silver (nuggets or prospecting). However, I haven't tried digging many deep holes yet. (Also, according to others, you're pretty lucky to have graphite, too.)
  15. I am throwing my name into the Ursine Nation Life on the Frontier hat just in case a spot opens up! 1. Dan_Derth 2. I live in New York State, so my time zone is Eastern 3. I've used Skype, but not Teamspeak yet 4. It takes 500 units of rich ore to make 5 ingots (however, it also takes 500 units of poor and normal, too 5. I started playing TFC a couple months ago; I'm in the Iron Age right now 6. I've done some test recordings, and would like to record tutorials, but I love just playing the game 7. I've never been a part of a server community before, so I'd like to see what it's like. I'm in my mid-30's as well, and have four kids, who also got me into Minecraft a couple years ago. Now I'm still addicted, but they rarely play! (Thanks a lot, kids! LOL)
