      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. Reflections on suggestions

    Cool ! I'm glad to hear that. I think some of the suggestions are genuinely great, but I can totally see from your perspective that you can't spend all that time programming in what are effectively requests Good to be back, haven't been around in a while
  2. Reflections on suggestions

    I feel like I need to point out I don't mean this in a bitter way at all. I enjoyed the time I spent writing the suggestions, and I never expected any of the functions to be coded into the game. I think a lot of people are the same Sda, I've got a job, a social life and any single player games I want to work through. I think if this mod was a standalone game with better graphics, it would probably eat a chunk of my life, but I don't feel the same draw to play minecraft anymore. I also feel like there was never the community to fully draw me into the game. In the earlier days, we tried hard, I even hosted a server aimed at RP survival with factions, but there was never the population to sustain any really interesting interaction. I think if you could get a server running this mod with a decent number of players, you could have a genuinely interesting MMO, without it being any different from today. BUT back on track The question I posed was more directed at how much player suggestions influenced the game design choices, rather than if any of them were included outright, but I do totally agree with you and there were many times during my suggestions that I wished I could code to make them into an addon, though I don't think that was considered an option by Bioxx and Dunk at the time.
  3. Reflections on suggestions

    I was quite active on this forum for a while, I mainly posted in the suggestions. I don't really play the mod any more, though I do keep tabs on the changes. I've always wondered what impact the player suggestions have on the games development. When I look back on the effort I put into those suggestions, I realize that I spent most of the time because I found it interesting to think about the possibilities, rather than a genuine belief I would affect the course of the game. Any thoughts ?

  5. Combat Overhaul final (3/3)

    Well put ! .. Ok then To be fair, it would be awesome to have overhaul looked at again ¬.¬ ... I'd really like some more varied ranged combat ¬.¬
  6. Dynamic Ecosystems

    Can't wait to see this when it is done ! .. Your signature is ...... Obtrusive :L
  7. Combat Overhaul final (3/3)

    Guys, if Bioxx shot this down, that is his business ! :L .. I don't want my suggestion forced on him .. Ultimately, it is his mod and he should stick to what he thinks is right By the way, I am honoured that a thread this old of mine was deemed worth rezzing :')
  8. Lock Me Please

    I don't fear noodles :L ... I don't understand why anyone would :P
  9. Making metal weapons and armor more usefull!!

    Course you are, I just feel like everyone is less active than they used to be :L .. Maybe it's a perceptive issue on my part :L
  10. Making metal weapons and armor more usefull!!

    I wouldn't say so .. If anything you appeared during the peak of the forum, but I would say it lasted til after your arrival .. After all, you were part of the beautiful dream that was terra .. After that, it just seemed like the forum activity and quality dropped a notch .. Does eternal still post here much ? I always decided his departure would mark the death of "suggestions" :L .. This isn't meant as a slight to the new guys by the way .. You've posted some awesome ideas, I'm just reminiscing
  11. Walls of text

    Ah enough modesty JAG .. I've basically disappeared while you're still here :L .. Between the two of us, you're definitely the experienced veteran now
  12. Making metal weapons and armor more usefull!!

    If you wanted realism, put on some boots and head out into the big, bad outdoors for a game of "real life" .. This mod (if anything) is intended to give a delicate balance of believability and enjoyable gameplay .. On the subject of forum vets, we seem to be a dying breed
  13. Rip-off?!

    It's not about what people think of you. It's about being a decent, respectful and contributory member of the community. Your view that "I don't give a fuck and that's why I'm being an ass" is so childish. I know you don't care what we think about you, but there's no point in even posting here if you're not going to contribute anything and spend your time aggravating members of the community.
  14. Rip-off?!

    British accent .. I can see none of you are from the uk :L .. The concept of a "british accent" is as ridiculous as an "American accent" .. I am british, but I assure you, I sound nothing like them. The accent they use in their videos is an English aristocratic accent, not cockney, which is far less focused on proper enunciation and more on rhyming slang (apples and pears = stairs).
  15. Weapon/tool 'finishing'

    Yours .. To be frank, dunks post pleases me as confirmation of the idea, but your post impressed me as one of the few excellent ideas I've seen in a long while :L
