      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."

Overview

Our goal at Aquor Servers is to create a friendly yet competitive SMP environment. In order to keep a high quality experience, our administrators are hand-picked from the playerbase based on their integrity, attitude, and behavior. Administrators that prove unable to meet our standards are swiftly demoted.

Aquor Servers uses the Terrafirmacraft mod in order to promote permanent teams and bases, as well as create more difficulty and depth. To install this mod, go to Terrafirmacraft.com and follow the instructions. You will need the MC Forge API and the Player API, both of which can be found with a quick Google search.

One of the most unique features of our server is the limited up-time. When Aquor first launched in 2010, we were the first public survival server to feature limited up-time as a gameplay mechanic, only running during certain times of the day. The purpose of this is simple; If the server is running 24/7, it is impossible for the players to make permanent, above-ground bases. Limited up-time gives players a feasible chance to defend their base at all times.

Feel free to invite your friends! It is difficult to start off alone; having a group can greatly enhance the experience. We hope that you and your friends enjoy your stay in Aquor Servers.


Customer support:

If you have any questions, suggestions, complaints, or criticisms, please send an E-mail to [email protected] It is easiest for us to get back to you if you send an E-mail to that address.


Rules.

To maintain a friendly, but still competitive environment in Aquor, certain rules must be followed. While we
wish to grant players as much freedom as possible, there are certain behaviors that must be restricted to make the gaming environment enjoyable for as many players as possible. These rules are listed here:

1.) Profanity is not permitted. This includes, but is not limited to, saying or alluding to Rape, discussing sex
in a joking or unprofessional manner, and other similar topics.

2.) Cheating of any kind is not permitted. This includes, but is not limited to, combat logging, X-ray texture packs, hacking clients, speedhacks,
flighthacks, noclip, griefing clients, etc.

3.) Personal attacks on other players is not permitted. Normal banter between opposing teams is fine, as it is a part of the competitive gameplay.

4.) The admins have final say in what happens on the server. That being said, you can voice your opinions in a respectful manner, and the admins will listen.

5.) Griefing and raiding are allowed, but don't be a jerk about it! The point of this server is to have fun,
not make others feel bad or inferior.

6.) Always be courteous to other players. If something you are doing is interfereing with another players
ability to enjoy the server experience, then you should stop! Unless it breaks a rule or stops you from
enjoying the server in the way it is meant to be played, there is no need to continue.

7.) Metagaming, while it can't be stopped, is heavily discouraged. Metagaming entails causing other players to quit, doing things outside of the game that are detrimental to other others (regular communication is fine), or anything that works outside of the intentions of the game. Not only does it ruin the fun for other people, but it's actually detrimental to the server itself!

8.) Outside of ~9KM from spawn, you are not allowed to farm. This is a soft limit, so if you are afraid that you are breaking it, contact an admin and they will check your coordinates and location to make sure it's okay.


Ban appeals:

The friendly people at Aquor want to give hopeful players a second chance. If you simply fill out one of these applications and post it in this thread, we will get back to you at the earliest opportunity.

Note about the server OP:

I changed the bit about the amount of money needed each month. What I meant was how much it costs per month to run the server. It's not required to pay to play, the server won't be shutting down if enough money isn't brought in, and this isn't just some ploy to make money. I'm sorry if it was put across that way, it was not my intention. I was trying to show the amount of money it costs to run the server each month.

My apologies on the server not being up at the correct time. I had to be somewhere at the normal starting time, so I set an automatic task to start the server, but it failed.

-=+ Nov. 9, 2012: Server Hours adjusted to accommodate for when players can be online. Server now runs from 3:00PM through 9:00PM PST.

If you google Aquor Servers, and click the top one, it doesn't work.

Thanks for putting the server back up.

I'm not sure what the problem is, sorry. It comes up form me and other people as the first result, or one of the first results. You'll just have to bookmark the page I guess :/

Why did you change it? It wasn't that bad before, you can't have the hours accommodate everyone.

Although I am fairly new to the server, I figured I ought comment too. The time-change, while not preventing me entirely from playing on Aquor, does significantly diminish the time available to do so. I understand that it may be more convenient for the owner or other longstanding players in the community, but if it is possible to return it to the original 1-7, or perhaps simply extend it to 1-9, that would be much appreciated.

Hello, i love this server, its my fav so far. if you would be so kind as to extend it from 3-9 to maybe 3-10 or something, 10 is good for those who stay up late anyway and have nothing better to do.

Actually, I am toning DOWN the shutdown time to shut down at 7:00PM, because nobody is on after that. If enough people start being online after that, I will extend the uptime.

if you are really reducing uptime to that, I may not play much on this server. Because that's just not enough time to make me feel like I am doing anything with the effort that I give on the server.

There were 3 people online past 7:00Pm. That is not enough for it to be worth running that late. I have examined when people are online and playing, and have adjusted hours accordingly.

your going to lose people Sting, maybe you should just wait to finish school first when you have the time to professionally examine this server. because i can name 5 people who where on last night at least 8:00 pm. Anon, ultraboomer, myself, you, Legitpigmen, mclovens, and billyboy. there, 7 people and i can have every one of them vouch, you ask then yourself before you say only 3 where on. if you are going to say something, at least make it the truth.

P.S. i dont remember Anon's full id name but Ultra and i both saw him on last night.

Just to clarify for the players on Aquor: I am not shortening the hours to meet when I can keep an eye on it, I am adjusting the hours to match when players are online. If there is a significant amount of players online during normal shutdown times, I will extend the hours. At the moment, however, most players are offline at 7:00PM PST, making it unfair to run the server for those few people who are online.

In addition, I will make the server start sooner if enough people log on within a short amount of time after launch. I am trying to adjust the server hours for when people are online for two reasons: I want to make sure that it is feasible for each team to have people online, and less importantly, to reduce server running costs.

no no no, you don't understand.

I am home-schooled, I am not changing server uptime to match my school hours, I am changing them to match when people are on. When it was 7:00PM in my time zone, there were only 3 people online.

If there are enough people online when the server normally shuts down, I will extend the hours. I am shortening the hours to when most people are online to make it as balanced and as fair as possible.

well i give congrats to you being home-schooled as it does help and makes day to day life easyer. i am not trying to be disrespectfull to you in ANY WAY, i think your server is good, But the only reason people are leaving this server during 7 your time zone. is because we didn't know what your time sone is. other wise i would be on all night. and so would Ultraboomer,

WHY NOT PUT IT TO A VOTE! i mean for real. why not listen to the people playing your server instead of making choices for them.
