      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. Teaching

    Not that I think the idea is all that necessary to begin with, but why not just make being taught cost experience, and perhaps give a tiny amount to the teacher. Incentive to teach and a cost to learning?
  2. Have you ever found Graphite in Gneiss?

    Just through chance I never find graphite in gneiss. On the other hand graphite spawn regularly on the surface for me, or at least in an open ravine or cave.
  3. Ceramic bowls - another tedium

    We should at least be able to create a bigger kiln structure or a firing mound which is capable of 16 items at once near mid game when collecting coal, bricks or wood becomes much easier. Or just make it so the bowls don't break.
  4. [TFC 0.79.27] Technofirma Mod Pack

    That bug is usually caused by outdated graphics chip, I guess you're disabling stencil bits? IT could be that some of the mods require the use of stencil bits, in which case there's probably no alternative left.
  5. Digging Up Safely

    What about placing a plank? if you place it over you head can you now just dig straight up? the cobble won't be able to hit you.
  6. Debris Duping

    I had the same problem, came to the same conclusions. However it stopped after about 2 hours of game play and I couldn't reproduce it in that single session.
  7. Torch Poll

    How about you read the poll? The question is; After playing with the new torch mechanic, what is your opinion? There was no option for the opinion I wanted to voice, which was absolutely valid. Because the simple condition of whether or not a permanent light source exists completely shifts my disposition towards the mechanic. Plenty of us have voiced that opinion, whether or not it should be included in the poll is a question of whether you're willing to listen to community.
  8. Torch Poll

    The questions being asked is about the mechanic, so isn't irrelevant. If you ask whether I like all foods, or no foods, I'll tell you that your question is insufficient.
  9. Torch Poll

    I'm gonna agree with maga and say that the poll is insufficient. Despite what I expected, I happen to love the feature...but only if there is a permanent light source. Without pumpkins I think it's an awful feature and makes the game boring. It's clear that a permanent light source is what a lot of us want, or at least a very long lasting one. To say that it is irrelevant to the current torch mechanic is so absurd I can't get my head around it.
  10. How do you catch a fish?

    Learn how to spear fish, you'll get your butchering skills up while you're at it.
  11. A slight modification to logpile block physics

    Waste of time in my opinion. Here's an exercise in real life. Take 16 different wooden logs and try to make a nice stack out of them. It's not as easy as you might think, hell, even two different types of wood can be hard.
  12. Snowberries

    They do seem to contain a lot of harmful chemicals. Based on the ld50 of orally ingesting such compounds purely from snowberries, the effects of vomiting and delirium would kick in before you could ingest enough.
  13. Minecraft 2 early access

    I'm sure he knew that already.
  14. Let's See Some Builds

    Its awesome at night, but we need a picture of the house during day time too.
  15. Tutorial site in the making!

    All I ask is that the information you supply is correct. There are way too many tutorials out there that spread misinformation based on faulty "experiments". Don't be that guy that says diamonds spawn more around lava.....
