      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. [Offline] Small Self-hosted Server

    Excuse me, the server has gone offline for a few hours, would you be so kind as to restart it?
  2. To my old RaiserCraft buddies.

    Well Judging by their profiles, Kizyx was last on about a month ago, and Watsaru hasn't been on the website since 2012. You could try to Pm them i suppose, unless you have any other method of contact.
  3. Question about food preservation and beyond

    Out of curiosity, is there anything implemented or in the works similar to iceboxes? The technology needed for one is extremely minimal, i actually own a functional wooden icebox, they were one of the most common ways of preserving food once transportation such as cars became viable. However, carving ice and carrying it yourself seems plausible, that's how the Vanderbilt's did it at their mansion.
  4. To my old RaiserCraft buddies.

    Heyo Heinrich, If i remember correctly we played on Raisercraft together. I actually am looking around for a server, and would be happy to join you in your escapades.
  5. Username: Sirbab Age: 20 Location: Ohio, USA Why do you like to play TFC? I happen to like to rustic feel, and balance that it provides. I play/have played a decent amount of the tech modpacks, and it just feels... strange, especially with so many mods cobbled together. Also there's the nice feeling of progression and challenge that it gives. Why do you want to join? I felt like getting back into TFC for a while, saw a server with a good presentation, up to date, and one of the biggest things; Pregenned map, exploring in tfc was such a pain in the rear for everyone on the server on previous TFC experiences i've had. What will you add to the server? Hmm, A community member for one, A neighbor, and probably some fairly decent abodes. Most likely i would join or settle a town. If i like what i see, i'll probably ask a few of my buddies to tag along. As well as having a better than basicknowledgeof how TFC works (at least versions from a few months ago).
  6. The OLD Roanoke Thread

    Hullo there, i've been perusing around for a terrafirmacraft server to play on, and i was very curious as to how this one is coming along, If possible i'd also like to play. My in-game name is: Sirbab I'm somewhat of a TFC Vet, but please excuse my ignorance of the past few versions, it's been a while
  7. Who wants to do a group play?

    I'd be interested in joining in on the fun.
  8. Is It Possible To Make Maps?

    I'm fairly certain they don't exist yet in tfc, there's just so much parallel work to be done, it's low priority. I think the original reason it was postponed was due to an incoming Vanilla change. don't quote me on this though, i've been absent for a while now.
  9. Ore Availability: Am I Just Lucky?

    Oh i happens, a fair bit depending on the location. I've found copper several times, as well as sphalerite, and cassiterite, Mostly in the sides of mountains/hills just exposed. But also, in the desert, there are lil' caverns that are filled with ore sometimes.
  10. Tomahawks as an upgrade to Javelins?

    Well yes, the "Atlatl" was more or less a lever to launch spears at high speed.
  11. Tomahawks as an upgrade to Javelins?

    I mispoke apparently, forgive me. I did not see that someone already mentioned the glory of the Atlatl.
  12. Easier way of making charcoal?

    I remember a few months back, a fairly well thought out alternative, but it was the same principle, just heat in an oxygen low environment = Profit. It really is easy once you get your hands on a jungle, or sequoia forest. Sythes + willows are good for renewable Charcoal. I used to spew out about 400 coal every hour or so by my self. Of course, i did have a metal saw, and went on a slash and burn method, but still.
  13. Quality of Foods / GMO/ Organic etc.

    Well said Rgamer Most people fail to realize that most of our current plants/crops didn't exist (at all/in this state) for example, corn used to be the size of one's thumb, and about as palatable. some fruits have only existed for neigh 30 years. Just sayin' to the nay sayers
  14. [Offline] Terra - [RPPvP] [Factions] [Democratic Rules]

    Oh my, you boys seem to be having quite the issues lol.
  15. Direct use of all metals for tools etc

    Well, what i learned, and found again on wikipedia, is this - According to an article Fahrenheit wrote in 1724, he based his scale on three reference points of temperature.[4] In his initial scale (which is not the final Fahrenheit scale), the zero point is determined by placing the thermometer in brine: he used a mixture of ice, water, and ammonium chloride, a salt, at a 1:1:1 ratio. This is a frigorific mixture which stabilizes its temperature automatically: that stable temperature was defined as 0 °F (−17.78 °C). The second point, at 32 degrees, was a mixture of ice and water without the ammonium chloride at a 1:1 ratio. The third point, 96 degrees, was approximately the human body temperature, then called "blood-heat"
