      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, so i have another suggestion....have a mod close this post now cause it got derailed enough for me.

35 posts in this topic

EDIT:

can a mod or admin just lock this or delete this. i was hoping on striking convo-a-plenty here. but it seems that all some want to do is bitch about minuscule things and cause small derailments.

original post has been modified due to me just giving the hell up on this thread.

a very special thanks goes out to: pwajnkaim, estebanlb, and halfmaster1 for being extraordinary asses in this. you fueled my want to just have this now useless thread burnt. congrats you bastards.

Is Advanced HUD incompatible with TFC?

yes it is, crashed me first shot. we have a new hud piece that it doesn't understand. the bits with the hoe, and chisel.

well i don't know how the devs feel, but i kind of want to have a minimal HUD if any at all

yes i agree with you in some aspects, personally i love moving over my chat into a position i much prefer.

side note; updated the vid to current one, it's ok, but ant venom goes the the original 1.3.2 options as mentioned in OP.

nonononono....like not a small or out of the way HUD, a minimal one that doesn't tell you all the information ever, like you should be able to tell if you're injusred without looking at a little bar. or same with the breath meter and armor meter

if you watch the vid(s) then you will see that you can set everything to a fade of even like 1 second i think. and then you can have literally nothing on the screen. or you can disable things of the such, but yeah, it's all there give it a look.

A feature similar to the Advanced HUD modification? Unless it's changed to be different from it (or make sure the Developers make TFC compatible with Advanced HUD), don't you think we might cause some copyright issues?

well of course we need permission of turboslow i believe his name is. but i dont think a guy trying to make a mod for the benefit of all minecrafters would mind an adaptation of his/her mod for another mod. i mean i personally wouldnt, but hell if i have to i'll ask the guy/girl.

This is cool. Reminds me of WoW add-ons that let you create custom UI's where the hotbars could be configured and put anywhere...

But I agree with Srgnoodles. A minimal HUD would be awesome. Introduce visual/audible cues to let the player know their status.

When hurt: slow pulsing red border that creeps in closer the more hurt you are. More frequent 'moans' and 'groans' from the player.

When hungry: Edges of screen start to blur. Frequent stomach rumbling noises.

When underwater: A pulsing black border that pulses whenever you lose an 'air bubble.' When you are down to 5 left, it pulses twice per bubble. Noises of a person struggling to hold breathe.

The hotbar could do a similar thing here: have a fade out time that fades to about 15-20%, so it's still visible. When activated (mouse scroll, inventory) then it reappears.

No that's dumb. Relevant titles are not only helpful to people trying to find topics but also to keeping the forums organized. How does that not make sense to you?

clearly you are not a pitcher. heheh..that was a dumb pun.[edit](really bad pun) now then where i do love your ideas and commentary, however in this moment i quite frankly dont give a flying damn. you read it you posted yer opinion and that is all i wanted. especially since you come up with quite good ideas.

otherwise i would like to leave an enigmatic even irrelevant(on rare occasion i guess) title until such rules require i post a relevant title as to what i am addressing.

and it makes sense because some people read the title, and wonder what the suggestion might be this time. seeing as they (may) took(take) the time to read it, or even indulge in the material given. some might even post their opinion for having used their time on this post.

i never said it made sense or wasnt even dumb, but point is you posted and i got yer opinion after you read it.

point and case.

again i dont give a damn kindly take the insult and eat me. otherwise please post something useful or shut the hell up.

Calm down, deus_hominem; it's unnecessary to reply to EstebanLB with an insult at the end of the post.

If you had to write an essay to apply for something, would you title it, "ok, so I wrote another essay"?

While the title may have gotten more posts, it has gotten less posts about your suggestion. Titles are so that people know what they are about to read. Your title is completely useless, it's not like some is going to think "Wow, he posted a suggestion! I totally didn't know that, despite the fact it is in the suggestions forum!"

Finally, you claimed that it made someone post, but then you complained that they posted something useless. So you are saying your title made them post something useless, but you still blame them.

1: fair enough, but one post ripping on something useless is enough. point made i see yer case and agree.

2: again please, just bugger off and keep to topic. at this point i dont want to argue, i want to discuss things.

3: another? seriously shut the hell up god damn. derailing is all well and good, but at least contribute instead of being useless. and yes, seeing as i blow harder than a 200 dollar whore at essay writing. yes i would put that dumb-fuck answer you just fed me.

next for yer list of stupid shit you said, i dont care.

next would be me saying again contribute, or i will rip on you. simple shit right? so yes i do blame them. i dont have to make sense, i want to debate suggestions. that is what the suggestion forum is for. not derailing things.

4: hahah.... for once i found yer post amusing.. ok maybe more than once, but yer still an ass hat. albeit a funny one at times i must admit.

lastly can a mod or admin just lock this or delete this thread.

~see original post.~
