      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. [TFC 0.78.9] ExtraFirma Addon v1.0.4

    Awesome! Are Rain Collectors currently craftable?
  2. Supplemental Advancement to Copper

    This is good and original. Support!
  3. Explosives, a use for gunpowder.

    That's sad news, considering it'll make cobblestone walls just about impossible to build. Walls will have to be made of either thatch, log, planks (requiring metal for the saw) or bricks (requiring metal for the chisel).
  4. Alternatives for magical mobs

    Any chance of posting a quick how-to for the original post? I've been planning to do this for a while, but hadn't yet taken the time to figure out how.
  5. Female Gender Option

    As far as games go, Minecraft is probably as good as it gets with regards to political correctness, with complete gender-neutrality and absence of gore. Thus, I do believe the original poster's request to be unjustified. On the other hand, the overreaction in some of the responses is an attenuated manifestation of a thoroughly demonstrated phenomenon, namely, that the comments on topics and articles dealing with feminism usually justify the existence of feminism. If you ask me, this is one topic that'd be better off closed and deleted.
  6. TFC Endgame - To the Clouds!

    "Appropriate" or not, I'd love to see this.
  7. Corpses, Food, and Butchering

    that a 'yes' or a 'no'? lol
  8. [TFC 0.77.22] Strongcraft (v0.1.4)

    Would you consider adding some directional information to the search staff results? While keeping it single-use, of course. Something along the lines of, I don't recall the exact quote but, "You feel a strong wind blow [from the southwest/from below/from behind]"
  9. How about a Smoke house and trap lines?

    This is great. Support! Also, multiblock structures = fun.
  10. List of new monsters

    There has been talk of keeping the fantasy-esque mobs but moving them underground, and leaving the surface for wild animals to roam. I believe the mobs you suggested would be a really nice addition to the underground roster (specially the ghost and shadow). I also fully support the addition of bandits and robbers to the surface - or else why do I even build a house?
  11. More food needed

    The fact that it has been discussed to hell and back AND not yet implemented is not a very good reflection on the community (and devs), and has the undesirable effect of inhibiting further suggestions...
  12. Scythe work

    Many times I've read "but then scythes would become useless!" in response to a suggestion. You've just explained the reason why - it's because scythes are currently being employed "out of character". I fully support crops being very hard to harvest by hand.
  13. The "Why Can't I...?" Thread

    Alright folks, this is a brainstorming thread disguised as a little game. The idea is simple: you know those moments when you are faced with a situation in which you take the most logical action only to find out that it doesn't work? Be it due to oversight or balancing or any reason, this sometimes leads to immersion-breaking. So, I propose this thread become the place to write about it so that a developer or add-on maker or somebody can fix it. Let's keep it short and to the point though - objective issues with objective solutions. I'll start with a few, you guys follow suit: - Why Can't I... drink water from a water bucket? I just went down to the river and forgot to fill my jug. Now I have to go back, even though I'm carrying 4 buckets of water! - Why Can't I... use sticks to fuel a firepit? It is made of wood after all. Sure, each one will burn for a very short time, but I have a ton of them! - Why Can't I... throw rocks at those zombies? There's a zombie trying to eat me, and I happen to have 10 big rocks in my pocket and a good throwing arm!
  14. Double Suggestion: Art & Wine/Beer

    I, for one, would much enjoy making music in TFC.
  15. [Suggestion] Basic Needs

    I believe you have a solid point here. The awesome blacksmithing system sets a high standard that some other aspects of the simulation don't quite live up to. Now this isn't meant as criticism, it's just my own personal observation. Maybe the next steps in development should focus on bringing the other systems up to speed. Even if it's just minute changes that make some things a little more intuitive, so that the player doesn't have to ever ask "why can't I do this?" Perhaps I can make an actual suggestion tomorrow after I've slept on it.
