      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."

  3. [Offline] Whitelisted Small Community Role-Play TFC Server

    Full Name: John H Time-Zone: Pacific Skype: yes or no? Yes, but I prefer to meet people before I skype with them. Ingame Name: Track394 Age: 17 Experience with Minecraft: Played anilla since beta 1.7.3 Experience with TFC: I started 2 years ago when you could make tools out of tier zero metals. Why you wish to join: Casual play, I hope to come online randomly whenever friends or homework allow for it. More info- I love TFC because of its realism and added difficulty. I like the relative absence of whiny 10 year olds and griefers etc. My role is mostly a home builder and a vagabond who enjoys making friends and trading. I know my way around a forge and pickaxe when need be.
  4. An Aesthetic Use for Gems

    What many of you have neglected is the fact that diamond is in fact used in many tools. I have never really heard of diamonds being used in picks, but I know that they can be crushed into a powder and then cast or beaten into saws or tools that might cut materials, similar to what Kazahied said earlier. I don't think it would be possible to grind diamonds in a grindstone because it is so hard, but maybe through the use of a higher tier grinder, it could be possible. The benefits of doing this should only be a greater increase in durability since the diamond is in too small a quantity to create any change in cutting speed. Also, diamond is so hard that it should only be used in at least steel level or higher tools or else the diamond dust just simply wouldn't hold in the weaker metals. Edit: I know that this isn't really an aesthetic use for diamonds, but it seems like a good way to use them either way.
  5. combat tips in the stone age for new players

    My technique for surviving is to 'hole up for the night'. In other words, I create a small shelter using thatch and dirt. I found that if you collect 72 straw using a knife and 11 dirt + or - sticks and wood for a fire, you can create a very nooby but effective shelter. Also, if you gather enough stones and sticks, you can preoccupy yourself with making tools and torches for long enough to pass up most of the night. Another thing I might add is that by having an open shelter you can run to, you will have a 'rabbit hole' in which you can hide in the case of a skeleton attack, using the open windows and murder holes to your advantage. Lastly, I would like to point out that certain rocks do different amounts of damage and have different durabilities depending on which one you use. For example, throughout my adventures, I discovered that andesite is inferior to gabrro in durability but equal in damage. Check the wiki for more info on this.
  6. Prospector's pick : How to use at it's best.

    I use the box technique whenever I search for surface veins, but when I deep mine, I have to use a branch/tunnel technique where I simply dig a HUGE tunnel and run along spamming the pro-pick until I can guesstimate the near center/direction of the desired vein. Although this technique requires a ton of metal tools, it doesn't really bother me since I am swimming in lower level metals at that point. I might use the box method if I have a general idea of where the ore is (and other clusters) and so I could more accurately locate the largest quantity of said ore using that technique.
  7. Surface prospecting with prospector's pick

    I really liked this technique too, it makes a good way to get your foot in the door, in metallurgical terms.
  8. Crashing on startup

    I have had this problem too. I noticed that it only really happens when I start my world in a dense jungle or Sequoia forest, sometimes I can get it to work, other times I can't. Eventually I just gave up and created a new world, but try to avoid dense jungles of Sequoia Forests.
