      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. New to TFC, looking for a small server to play on

    Sorry but no. In our experience almost everybody who was unable to follow that simple rule was also unable to follow our main rule: respect the staff and other players. You can go curse some place else, no problem. Good luck in your search.
  2. Lit pumpkin is overpowered

    If you like to play that way, then please go ahead and play that way. Who knows, maybe other server owners agree with you and will consider implementing it.
  3. New to TFC, looking for a small server to play on

    The HappyDiggers TFC servers are visited by new players and veterans alike. You're welcome to give it a go. We allow client side mods for convenience like Journey Map, Waila, Nei, etc. Check out our server thread for details.
  4. Lit pumpkin is overpowered

    Sorry, but I disagree with your idea. On servers you can't expect players to have to light their towns and builds repeatedly every few hours. If you did then every time they joined the server they would have to light up everything again. That is not fun and playing on servers should be fun.
  5. Merchant Guild

    We set up the HappyDiggers TFC servers without any kind of economy plugin to encourage trade and bartering. We have build a primary network of roads after which the community expanded on that with their own roads. Prices of goods change depending on what people have and/or want. If that sounds like something you might be interested in, you can check out our servers. See link in my signature below.
  6. Your server's motd sais: Private Server, Friends Only! Your server currently has a whitelist enabled preventing people from joining. Is there a whitelist application people can use to gain access? Or is your motd correct and are you only allowing friends? If so, would you mind changing your topic to reflect this?
  7. Blu Empire [TFC Beta]

    I'm sorry to hear that. Perhaps you can try again when TFC 2 comes out?
  8. Glad to see you're back. Good luck with the server
  9. Sorry to hear that. I hope you'll consider running new servers in the future. We ban people who advertise on our servers. There's only so many alts they can come up with so keep banning and they'll give up eventually. Using MCBans also really helps. We only have to ban a player once to get rid of that player on all of our servers. As for numbers, we've banned about 25% of players on our servers for breaking our rules. So be prepared to ban a ton of players and you'll end up with a server that offers a save environment for players. We have a controversial no swearing rule. As it turns out enforcing that weeds out bad players pretty quickly. As for protection. Forge sucks to run servers. As a platform it's just not suited to do any of the server admin stuff required to run a public server because there are no mods that even come close to what Bukkit plugins have to offer. Which is part of why we, and other server owners, user things like Cauldron, plugins and command blocks. Sure it takes a lot of work to set up, especially given that TFC is special. But once done it's fairly stable and reliable. Anyway, good luck and I hope you will be back with new and interesting servers in the future.
  10. Cauldron does not cause world corruption. We've been running Cauldron with plugin based protection for years and have served over 15000 individual players without world corruption caused by Cauldron. We have had TFC eat up chunks here and there in the past, but those were all directly related to TFC bugs which we had to report anonymously. The only people who have a problem with Cauldron seem to be the TFC devs because they refuse to support non-Forge servers.
  11. This has been requested many times. Enjoy TFC + anarchy, guys.
  12. Lockette uses item IDs, Towny uses ore dictionary names. It's pretty simple to set up protection for all TFC blocks and items. Just put everything you want to protect into a few plugin lists, TFC machines, chests, doors, armor stands, ingot piles, etc. Just don't put everything in a list since that will create problems which you probably don't want
  13. TFC ( Small Server to have fun on [Whitelist]

    LizardWithATopHat hasn't been online since 17 Dec 2016 since before the first application was filed. Has anybody been whitelisted on this server yet? What is it like?
  14. Anvil Corrupting World

    There are a bunch of reasons. Installing mods is hard so when people get it working they want to leave it alone as much as possible. (Even though if the bug gets fixed they'll have to update anyway.) People use mod packs that don't get updated. Either because they are abandoned or because other mods can't update to a newer Forge version or are just incompatible with newer TFC. People are using the "latest" version but "forgot" to check back after several months have passed and hit the post button before hitting the download button. People tend to rather complain than actively solve their issues. Take your pick
