      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."

The (Inevitable) End of the TFC Forums -- Now a Forum for Newcomers and Veterans

90 posts in this topic

I feel like a late comer to the party.  Of course I just started playing Minecraft last Spring.  No game, no matter how great will hold one's interest forever.  My personal time frame with even the best games is about 12 to 18 months before boredom or burnout takes hold. The ability to mod a game greatly extends this time of course.  I've found that taking breaks and playing other games helps.  I was hoping to find an active vibrant community here, but all I see are a few newcomers and a couple of old timers, with very little really being said.  Also, there seems to be an unhappy, almost angry mood hanging over the place.  I'm not sure if there is a specific cause or if it's just the continual frustration from having to deal with children or those with a childlike mentality. I'm a 27 year veteran of the Military, so I have very little patience for stupidity, but you can let it get to you or just ignore it.

 

  I also tend to say what I think and might at times be too blunt.  If so, I apologize.  No harm intended.  I really like what's being done with this mod and if there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.  I look forward to seeing what future updates hold.

I rather agree... but this might be common to many fora (forums?). The TFC community is small. Maybe many more people play the mod and are not registered here or do not post, but we are still talking about a small proportion of all MC players. Browse youtube for lets plays, and you wont find a heck of a lot. So that's how i judge the size of the community. The best videos are made by the mindcrack members in my opinion. I play TFC because i'm driven by their enthusiasm rather than from people showing off on these forums. However, i do enjoy reading about the occasional adventures people describe here - the rest probably plays out on multiplayer servers. I also enjoy the flow of updates for the mod and even the gratification that a bug of feature i suggested gets fixed/implemented. Finally, something about myself. I do not wish to open up as much as might be necessary for a vibrant community and since i only play single player mode, i do not read the multiplayer servers forums so i do not know what is going on in there. I was once part of an audiophile community of a media player no longer in development. But when things went sour, i learned it is unhealthy to get emotionally involved. I registered here to do mainly two things, 1) show off some of my builds in single player and 2) help new-comers to learn the basics of TFC.

это может быть очень классно

 

also i have a feeling people are forgetting the lurkers. ones who watch from the shadows and necro dead threads about steam pipes and whatnot. there may not be a lot of people posting i guess but i think there are still a lot of people who check in every once in a while to see what is going on and start posting once there is something new happening.

 

now that i think about it the community is like a hibernating bear that explodes into action during the summer and then slows down and sleeps during the winter.

Things change as time goes by. As quoted by Pharos:

 

"No one can escape time. It delivers all to the same end. You can't plug your ears and cover your eyes."

 

Certainly, if you were to compare the younger, immature me with the person you're speaking to right now, one would be lead to believe we're completely different persons.

I know that this reply is almost exactly a month late, but I'm still here. Kitty and Bunsen as well.

As far as I know, none of the other older members are here anymore. Aside from the mods, I think it's just you, me, Terex, and maybe Dunk. Seems like we're all relics of a bygone past, aren't we? :)

Man, was I such a younger mind back in the day...

Peekaboo, I'm still ghosting around here, though I don't really post anymore and spend my days hiding credit card ads.
