      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."

Heinrich's Guide to Surviving in Terrafirmacraft <<Oh Noes! He's back!>>

23 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I know I'm recent to the forums and to TFC but I can't seem to find anyone's videos that are extremely helpful to newbies when they play TerraFirmaCraft. I watched the Spotters Guide but I didn't know that rocks were being used to create tools until way later on in the series. So in order to help newbies and answer any questions that they might need (and to also lower the traffic on redundant posts on the forums) I'm doing this new survivors guide. I've really enjoyed this mod and can't think of any reason to help the community out even more. So here we go, going to put up three videos today to start the series off and I'll have the links in the forum post below so if people don't want to browse youtube they can come here and just click the link. Hope you enjoy and here's to a wonderful start!

Awesome man :)

There is also some outdated information and stuff that is floating around because of the age of some of the videos for new players, so it's good that way :)

Just so you all know there are more episodes on the way! I'm just waiting for the 1.3.2 build of TFC to stabilize before continuing. Don't want to deal with too many bugs and what not.

I don't think this will work, because I never posted a video, but try writing the link between [ url ] and [/ url ]. It should give you an url in place of the video. Try it and if it doesn't work, I don't know...Of course write it without the spaces.

Hey guys I know its been awhile but real life is a pain and with California gas prices at almost $5.00 a gallon I've been bike riding more so I've had less time to do youtube videos for TFC. I'm working on them a little at a time trying to hash things out and get it right and not rush it like the last few I've done. But I know you all are getting restless. Just so you know. I have two new series. 1 of which will involve TFC servers and another regarding Hardcore. So be on the look out. Once again thanks for the support and have fun with this great mod!

Alright guys! It's been a long while since the last time I did a TFC Video, or any video for that instance! It's time I make a comeback, this time the channel will have more than -just- Terrafirmacraft, but other mods as well and another game. There is a video up on the channel explaining it all! http://www.youtube.com/user/ProductionsValhalla
