      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. Spelunking.

    I fucking hate this community.
  2. Spelunking.

    You literally read my mind, lol. I just finished a collage of pictures that I whipped up quick. Granted I'm not the most brilliant terraformer around, and that probably doesn't resemble a real cave very well (based on memory from a cave in Russia), but you get the general idea. Tell me that doesn't look x30 more fun to explore than the vanilla minecraft caves. Now, take that, and add the other chambers and ponds that come with it. Throw the crystals and stalac / stalag formations in and wazzam, you've got an actual cave.
  3. Another Idea... Aesthetic Cave Crystals

    "nurr ets emposebles et desnt luk natrel gurhurhue minecraft cavs r bste cavs" That's not so extreme, it's just a really old and wet cave, lol. I like this suggestion, I want to see more "believable" features in caves, seeing as apparently making the caves believable is completely impossible according to the un-experienced wet-retards spamming my topic with their anal blood.
  4. Spelunking.

    I did a few experiments in-game, and it feels believable. To me, that is.
  5. Spelunking.

    I said this earlier. Your move.Caves have large parts, yes, thank you professor fu*king oak, you just made a breakthrough in natural science. They aren't comprised entirely of large parts. The vista's you posted were single parts in a large nest of small hallways.
  6. Spelunking.

    That also works. But that's not as "believable" as the term goes.
  7. Spelunking.

    I figured that since it's mostly a lot of crawling around. But that would require 'smart moving' to navigate which isn't an out-worldly notion.
  8. Spelunking.

    No, I don't think you get it. Let's do a google search for "caving" shall we?http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/2a/Caving1.jpg http://www.lifechangingactivities.com/images/caving_squeeze.jpg http://www.nps.gov/jeca/planyourvisit/images/Busch-Matt-Crawling-through-Hurrican-Corner-December-2005.JPG http://www.vagabondjourney.com/2009-1/09-2924-caving-budapest.JPG http://www.pterosaur.net/images/caving1.jpg http://outingclub-alpha.union.rpi.edu/graphics/ken_caving.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/0c/Caving2.jpg/800px-Caving2.jpg http://leavetown.com/discover/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/caving-tours-canmore-ab-hotel.jpg http://img.breakingmuscle.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/full_width/images/bydate/sep_11_2012_-_311pm/shutterstock_39088003.jpg Take it from a guy who's actually done it before, not some autistic know-it-all who thinks he's a cave master because of minecraft and a guns expert because he plays COD. Caves are tiny and full of water. I'm being generous when I say 2 x 3 halls. Yes, I realize that perfect 1 x 2 halls don't occur in the natural world, just as well as perfectly square tree trunks and square headed sheep don't either. Quit being difficult and open your damn mind for once.
  9. Spelunking.

    I said "small narrow caves" in the OP. That's how they form in real life. That's as natural as it gets.
  10. Spelunking.

    Have you been caving? I have. It's loads of fun. You should try it some time, maybe you'd get a clue about what you're talking about.
  11. Spelunking.

    Are you guys literally disagreeing with me / being difficult because you don't like me? Come on, it's not a difficult concept to grasp. A nexus of very cramped / narrow ( 1x2 - 2x3 halls ) that go on for a while, with certain points that are larger with features. You know, like real caves.
  12. Spelunking.

    See wikipedia article. Cango Caves <3
  13. Spelunking.

    That was a joke. It was just a bad one. You forgot a question mark.On a related note, I made a top down image representing 3 types of caves and their respective quality:
  14. Spelunking.

    Yes, I've seen those, and they're pretty boring and unrealistic. Please refer to the wikipedia article, then you will know about what I'm talking about. Can you stop? Just because some other morons can't keep a single train of thought for more than 10 minutes, that doesn't mean that my complete valid and logical suggestion should be deleted. You did this with my last topic.
