      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. Thanks... ALOT...

    ANd whatever you do, dont click on ANY part of a pop-up saying you need an antivirus, not even the close 'X' in the corner. Use task manager to kill it
  2. Is these things in seeds common!?

    We should petition Bioxx to leave this in.
  3. Sticks

    Most tools originally used 1" (ish) branches because they were far less time & labour intensive to obtain.
  4. Prospectors' pick madness

    For those of you who want 'are more accurate version': Quoted from :http://en.wikipedia....ral_exploration So even in today's high tech world, prospectors/miners are worse off than we in TerraFirmaCraft are.. Would you like to trade the ProPick for some tech that will require you to dig fifty boreholes for an even chance of a strike?
  5. Prospectors' pick madness

    Nicely done. (must resist temptation to....) Did you get cake? (bum)
  6. I did this : feel free to use n edit
  7. smelting problem

    Be aware that you don't have to use both the fireplace and the bloomery for ores.Some ores (such as Casserite) will happily melt in a fireplace with maple or hickory as fuel, maybe needing a little extra height, or a blow or two from a bellows. Other ores have to be melted in the bloomery (such as Haemetite). No amount of heating in a firepit will get them to melt.
  8. Spawning at very high height

    You get 4 layers of rock in each biome, chosen at random from the complete list of ~23. (layers are on average about 40-50 blocks deep) Each rock can contain veins of various minerals, e.g. Granite can contain Casserite & Bismuthinite (to name just two), which can be melted in a fireplace to make tin and bismuth - both starter metals. You really have to watch/read Spotters guide on the Wiki to get an overview of the Mod.
  9. Prospectors' pick madness

    I think it's part of the charm that if you don't recognize a tree, ore, rock, you pretty much have to mine/chop a block before you find out what it is. And if you can't see it properly, why not? Notch gave us torches for a reason!
  10. Prospectors' pick madness

    If you click directly on an ore, you should get the message 'You're kidding, right?'
  11. Prospectors' pick madness

    GladOs should have learnt from the ProPick
  12. Guide request: Does this exist?

    I did this: not comprehensive, but fairly useful in its own way..
  13. Help oej98!

    Prospectors pick gives you a vague idea of what is in a box 25x25x13 centered on the block you clicked. By moving 12 blocks NSEW and 6 blocks up n down you can home in on a vein. Remember that the pick is not 100% accurate, and may give 'nothing found' as a reply when not true, so take a sample from several blocks in a location to get an average
  14. More Bows and other bow building system

    Tell that to the Comp Sci Graduates using Redpower to lay out circuit designs... And to all the High school teachers teaching logic to their students... And to all the IT professionals building skyscrapers in their spare time... And to Slowpoke, who build the FTB map, Eloraam (Redpower), SirSengir(Forestry & Buildcraft)... I could go on..
  15. more tech

    At least he isnt trying to make Gnu-Powder - I tried that once and spent a week cleaning up the mess
