      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."

Why hello. I decided to start up a let's play for terrafirmacraft. I love watching videos of people playing and wanted to share my experiences as well! As of now, it's just me on my server, but I'm hoping to get my brother to join me at some point in the future. Let me know what you think! (I know the first few days can be very boring, but I'm hoping to ramp up quickly with blacksmithing, meals, exploration, building, etc.)

Here is Episode 01:

Episode 02:

New people making let's play are always welcome, but if you have stone...don't place it at the start of the game because it makes your world ugly. If you want you can place it, just a friendly tip...

Well thanks. And personally I don't have a problem with placing stone. I've heard others say the same - that it looks ugly - but to me I'd rather be ready to mine and advance than worry about looks from the get-go. I haven't found a better alternative (I was thinking about flowers? but then I'd have to make sure to collect them all to make sure i don't have false markings).

Thanks. Just rambling away!

I did a bunch of work on the server yesterday, upgrading to build68(!), gathering some clay (finally), and I'm about smelt my first ingot and pickaxe. I should have enough for a prospector's pick as well. Wandering around to find clay (and losing my way a bunch as well) I found a ton of wild crops and seeds. Plans are to make a floating island or some sort or a pier to grow a bunch of crops. There is a nice lagoon not too far from my home. I did experiment a bit and found some recipes for Resistance (I don't even know what this does because things were definitely still able to hurt me!). Of course, upgrading my house will also be in the works, as is making an area to do some smithing!

Yeh, what happened to Crysyn? Is the server still up? Why doesn't he do TFC anymore?

But yeh Ryan, nice LP I didnt understand though, if you have your fog set low, why do you use a Tex pack? Don't they slow things down?

I actually play some of my worlds with the render distance set to tiny; gives a very cool effect when trying to play on hardcore or something... So i wanted to scale that back a bit. And I don't know the performance issues with the texture pack. My computer isn't too shabby, but every little bit helps. I'll take the trade off for a smoother game play video with no lag.

They are very nice! And I guess I mistakenly thought the spiders and enderman didn't have textures and were appearing white when really it was just a rendering problem Bioxx fixed in this newest release.

UPDATE: Episode 2 is up. I make my first tools, find a vein of cassiterite, put together a charcoal pit, and get some early crops going!

Great job, Dock! I like this vid. Will you be soing more?

Planning on it. Was a busy weekend, hoping to get the next one recorded this week.

Balls. My old PC that was running my server just pooped itself. I lost all my world saves (I guess when you back up to the SAME machine the servers are running on, there stands the chance you might loose everything...). So THIS series is over. If only build 70 was released I could start a new one up... :)

Sorry for double post. As far as I'm concerned, this thread is dead.
