      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."

EDIT: Wait what?...wrong thread.......

Since this a derail i will get it back on topic, following the law of similarity it is a good thing to be individual.

Menoch, if i punched myself in the balls, you would feel the pain too, to that degree in which we are similar.

That said it would be passive empathy as it is in our nature we are similar.

Active sympathy on the other hand is forcing our natures to be alike by means of (yes -TK-) active empathy.

The inverse side of this is antipathy (???), is differing and not being similar to one another, take for example -TK-.

Following Mdub's statement he passively is different in nature as others, that would mean that it would not work the way as with menoch.

Or he is actually actively trying to be different from others. Thereby both ways would not work.

That is commonly known as the law of similarity, or empathy magic.

Derail turned back to on topic derail :P.

????

I meant active empathy in that I don't need to try to be empathetic. I cant do this because I'm too lazy, therefore I have to make an effort to ensure I'm being empathetic.

I'm not quite sure as to what you meant.

Also on the topic of your signature

So why was anybody worried about this forum dying?

This mod doesn't have much of a community to speak of and it really isn't that important to anybody.

You could have answered the question rather than lashing out at me.

You don't understand. A community is important to virtually all people. It allows us to connect to each other in ways we could only imagine; we make long-lasting friendships, competitive and playful rivalries, and fun. Communities in modding allows the mod developer(s) to recieve feedback in a more entertaining manner. If a modding forum dies, then where is the point to the mod? You don't have a website to report bugs/glitches for people to help you with, you don't have a website to discuss the mod itself, you don't have a place to suggest ideas whether they are great, not so great, ridiculous, or the like and have many users criticise it,

But most of all, you don't have a website to connect with those who play that particular mod with, and it's lonely if you're one of the few who love that mod.

Understand that, Tuck_Lion-san. Think about a certain topic (such as our concern for the forum's extinction, for instance) before posting your say on it.

yeaaah, I was going to create a topic named B78 waiting room, but I think here's the place, forum's not dead

I believe many people are waiting for a world lost in B78 and put TFC on halt, to avoid loosing more time on B77 worlds (my case, when I started to play TFC in B77, I did a new map, due to recent generation worlds, I read somewere, here or on IRC, that maybe worlds would be destroyed, so I did only my color steel on this world, no fancy construction, but now I see, could play more.)

To be really honest, I notice nothing bad in the forum activity and I'm active without casting out useless posts... What we need is motivation to play the mod, or do stuff to increase it's quality, for example, people make addons, modṕacks for TFC, suggestion series, finding out WorldPainter + TFC... If we keep in this obviously we can't die. Helping newbies is also good, and I enjoy doing so. The more people we help in the ways of TFC, the less we are to end.

Makes me wonder if there are people playing on multiplayer servers who seek their info on team chat rather than the forum.

@PaoloEmilio:

 

I mean by the number of active registered members. Most of the veterans here have since come and go: Lumireaver (never met him/her, unfortunately), achartran (one of my friends, and I had some very 'fond' memories with him), Just_Another_Guy_:) (one of the most fun users I've ever met [i copyright calling him by his full penname!]), TheWolf277 (another one of my friends), Kimbblesrath (he still goes here sometimes, but still. Also one of my closer friends), Srgnoodles (she still attends here too, but...), Killster550 (first user I've ever met and talked to on this site, if I remember correctly. Fondest of memories with him [especially the Name Me! Derail, that was fun]), Sting_Auer, Deathbytac0, ECC, Treyflix, HunterKain, Scooterdanny, Trancengopher, Jed1314, EternalUndeath, Crysyn (he was more of a moderator on this site, but still...), and several more.

 

That's a lot of the veterans I haven't seen in a while, now.

I agree with this. In B77, I've just lost interest as there's nothing to do after coloured steels. I mean sure, you can just build, but just building gets boring after a while. The tech tree is too short as of yet.

But it's kinda new all this current inactivity, I remember seeing the suggestion thread blasting with discussions and ideas, a  week ago. Most of the TFC players are Canadians for some reason, so they probably got hit by a very strong snow storm and they got no power, or school, maybe. 

 

Anyways, why the necro? lol. But yeah, b77 gets boring once you start mining for nickel and graphite, but it takes you usually a few weeks to find your first iron, which you'll have a lot of fun in the copper-bronze age.

Oh I'm always here. Even when I don't post. Heck even when I have a hiatus from TFC. The forums here are full of many smart people and I enjoy looking at the discussions. Instead of reading the news (which I find depressing) I go here. Haha!

Also I miss JAG. He was my favorite member of the forums. Also what about Infinus5? He was a prospector by profession if I remember correctly. Lots of fascinating info on geology from him.
