      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."

Ok, I need to ask. How did you do the little trim around the bottom edge of the bottom and top blocks ? I can't work it out :L

Edit: Nevermind, I got it :L .. You sir, are an innovator and a genius :P

I still can't figure out how this is done.

The pedestal is one full block, surrounded by worked stone. Each piece of worked stone was hit with the chisel 9 times on the outward-facing side, and once on top. The collumn was just a hit to each side of a piece of smooth stone. Here's the 'dissasembled' pedestal, maybe that'll make more sense:

Finally got around to having a proper play with the chisel (admittedly in creative :P)

Here's the album, I've decided that it's a mausoleum, although it's really purposeless, still, I can imagine a great warlock or necromancer or opressive warlord being buried there, in his intimidating island mausoleum. A monument to his power and dominance.

An Aquarium!! :o

Nice one mate, I really enjoy your chisel creations :D

They've actually really helped me get to grips with the chisel, because I am starting to understand how you have made these, so you're doing me a favour as well :P

Me and my friends are building on a survival TFC server and I did my house (brown/red wood) and the smithery (chert/granite) and did some nice chisel work.

Album:

Thats some nice chisel work there indeed ! :)

I'm really trying to improve my own chisel work, so that I might be of use to my next forum as a stonemason :D

We should form some kind of secret club with special handshakes ¬.¬

Working on making a rope bridge design, I can't make the fences look right really. If anyone has any idea's to improve it or make it look better I'm all ears.

Edit - Tried chiseling out some handrail type stuff and totally failed so fence is the best I've got for now.

Just noticed that the far right brick is one shave too thick, twitch lol. Also, that aqarium needs a squid floundering around in it.

So, when I use a chisel, all it does is turn regular stone into the retextured carved stone. I can't get it to change shapes at all. Pressing the mode switch button does nothing that I can tell...

you need a hammer in your inventory or hotbar as well as the chisel to shave off layers.

Yeah, I have that. You need a hammer to even make the carved texture that I mentioned.

~edit~

So, I looked through the news page and found this: http://www.terrafirmacraft.com/where-did-i-leave-that-chisel/

I can't get that sort of text to pop up, ever. Hitting the default key "m" doesn't do it (when holding a chisel and hammer or otherwise). Rebinding it to "i" or F4 doesn't change this either...

Finished up my house in the oddworld server today. The chisel is amazing for building, hopefully we get something that does it to wood soon. Credit to Azdoine for the awesome pillar design.

I made a church.. thing.. I like to think of it more as a cultist structure. Everything was made using creative mode, as I don't have an ounce of metal in my current TFC world. :[

Btw, the water has stairs underneath it with lava underneath the stairs, which makes them emit light. I think it makes them have a holy sort of look. :]

Well, I'm testing fruit trees this time around, so I did get to play with the chisel a bit. They're not amazing or anything, but enjoy my fail red horse and whooping crane.

That horse is pretty legit! Even if the tail turned out wonky, you can still pretend it's a scorpion/horse hybrid. :P The hoof and the saddle were nice touches.

I think I just shit a wall, forget the brick. Now I know what I am doing today in creative! Had I known you can carve bricks like this I would have been more entertained!
