      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."

Rules for posting Texture Packs

10 posts in this topic

Hey All,

Some basic rules for posting a texture pack are as follows:

  • If your work is based off of someone else's work you must include credit to the next immediate author.
  • Provide comprehensive screenshots to display all of the active alterations your texture pack provides.
  • Provide a download link that does not require login in order to access.
  • Your texture pack must not give unintended advantages to players.
Clarifications:
  • You only need to cite the person your work is immediately based off of, not all the people that their work may be based off of as well.
  • Unintended advantages are defined as:

  • Allow the player to see beyond what they would normally be capable of.

Is there any way we could get some sort of template as to what dirt/sand/farmland/clay corresponds to what type of stone?It is the devil itself to color-code them all and look for them in-game to pair the suckers up.

Pretty please?

Is there any type of format that should be used for the references?  I've downloaded several hundred free to use/modifiable photos over the last year or so, usually combining several photos per texture and heavily modifying the results.  Should I list all sources in the post?  Or add a notepad references to the download?

Either would be fine. The main reason we ask that you provide your sources is to avoid any possible issues regarding copyright.

I would actually say list the sources in the post itself. It can be at the bottom in a smaller font but to be fair to the original sources/inspirations of your work a little tag line at the bottom does not seem to much to ask for :)

Thanks for the speedy responses!  Given the OP date I wasn't expecting a reply so fast.  :)

 

Okay, so, cool.  The bibliography may be very very long, but I'll stick it in a spoiler if that's okay.

 

Two more questions:

 

One, in the references, can I reference a whole website for providing around 100-200 photos, or should I link each photo individually? 

 

Also, many of my textures have multiple textures per block.  For example each stone has 77 (so far) textures.  When posting the pictures of the changes, how thorough should I be?

The spoiler tags would work perfectly. As to your questions I would say reference the website is fine there instead of the individual images. When the count is low from a site I would see it as like referencing an article in a magazine, its not a problem to say that article from that magazine (that photo from that site). When its referencing a large quantity (not necessarily a large proportion) from a single source then it would seem ok to say as found in a location, more of using an entire book's information instead of a chapter of it.

 

The multiple textures question is a bit more of a Hmmmm... One of my fav vanilla mod packs is Misa's mod pack which has well like you said, almost a hundred for each texture type to show variation. I would say pick a few to show (no more than four, as it is just a preview) and then leave the rest to text like 'Added in a new dozen quartz textures' or some such. Maybe keep a running total for the variations some where.

 

As for the quick response.. Kitty is very responsive on the forums and snags us as needed if we are taking too long. This just happens to be a post thread I am subscribed to because people deserve a quick response on something like this :)
