      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. Due to a lack of time we have gone to a private server status and will not be accepting new members at this time.
  2. Postcards from EternityTFC It's finally time for summer and we here at EternityTFC invite you to join us! It's been about half a year since we started the server and we have had some really great players. Besides a technical bug here and there our only real complaints are the lack of others to play with. If people avoid the server because "no one plays" then there won't be people on it playing! So come explore, share your progress and your creations and most important of all have fun!
  3. Lag - Lumber vs Chiseled Blocks.

    The observation I made about lag with detail chiseled blocks was from experience and feedback from multiple players. After an incident where I had a build with an enormous amount of detail chiseling and complaints from every person who visited I switched to using mostly lumber. Since then I have taken observation from everyone who visits my builds on how laggy they seem to them, and so far I haven't had the severe issue I had with the detail chisel build. All of this in itself seems to be a more personal choice issue than anything. If the building material you are using creates issues scale back a bit. I love the detail chiseling feature and still use it quite often; just not on a large scale in any one place anymore. If I experienced complaints from my use of lumber I'd do the same, but as of yet all of the feedback has been neutral or positive. (P.S. I should mention the span of the observations of these builds on servers is approximately 2 years with hundreds of hours of play.)
  4. [Solved] Placing metal sheets on non firebrick blocks.

    I should have specified detail chiseling. From experience it creates a lot of lag on servers. I use lots of lumber and other forms of chiseling and don't notice an appreciable amount of lag from them.
  5. [Solved] Placing metal sheets on non firebrick blocks.

    I did a little experimenting and you can easily place sheets on any type of chiseled block, as well as chisel the block while the sheet is attached. I usually use lumber whenever possible to help keep lag down. As with lumber the sheets can also occupy the same space as one another; just use a block beside the place where you want the sheet, place the sheet, and take up the block. I started using sheets decoratively when I played in survival on another server and I had long ago reached colored steel. Now I'm building a town for my own server and I'm seeing where the special TFC materials can take me creatively. Screenshots of our builds are available on our server website and I always welcome new ideas, tips and tricks for building in TFC.
  6. [Solved] Placing metal sheets on non firebrick blocks.

    I use them decoratively all the time. You should play around with them more, there are so many uses for them such as table tops and water tubs. They will hold water but you can still walk through them. As you have said, platinum makes a really neat looking "mirror".
  7. My Village

    Yep, we're both old school gamers.
  8. My Village

    I thought my hammer and tongs sign for the blacksmith was rather clever until my husband said, "It's a guy holding a beer mug right?"
  9. Postcards from EternityTFC Spring is here! What better way to spend spring break than playing some TerraFirmaCraft on EternityTFC? Can't find the time to play sometimes? Play when you can and your build will be right there when you return even if you need to leave it for a few or a few months. Come join us on EternityTFC!
  10. Postcards from EternityTFC This week I'm featuring the bathhouse in grand Illian, the hub city of EternityTFC. SyrisRain is enjoying a long deserved spa trip after last weeks brush with zombie hordes. Interested in joining us? Browse our website at http://eternitytfc.enjin.com/ .
  11. My Village

    Unfortunately it was done in creative. The original tavern was done in survival however.
  12. My Village

    Thanks!
  13. My Village

    This is my village build for our server. The idea began with a tavern I saw in a BBC article. I built a replica of that tavern on one server, rebuilt it on my current one and have continued building from there. It's still a work in progress but I hope you enjoy it. Also if you would like to see more pictures from this village and others on the server check out our gallery @ http://eternitytfc.enjin.com/gallery
  14. Postcards from EternityTFC It was a toss up between Valentines Day and the Walking Dead for our weekly postcard... Enjoy!
