      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."

TFC translation

161 posts in this topic

To whoever did Russian translation for Kitty's Birthday alias - kudos to you for my massive grin.

 

And it's exactly disrespectful translations like those that is the primary reason why localisation support will be done through resource packs in TFC2.

That is not a right reason to have new features created, but if in the end we still end up with a better thing overall, so I'm fine.

Probably to late for this.

 

Not that I'm playing with localized languages in any game (I just like English more than Dutch).

But just wanted to help my fellow Dutchies whom do like to play in our native language and I liked this system as is.

Too bad that an immature minority had to ruin it for the well behaved majority.

 

Oh well, that's life and no action will prevent immaturity, it just finds an other place to be.

As a matter of fact, moving to resource packs will only help the immature minority to do what they always do. It's much easier to make custom resource packs and put whatever you want in there.

And they are welcome to do so. But in that situation, it no longer has the official "TFC Staff Approval" seal of being directly integrated and shipped with the mod. Players will also have to go out and take the extra step to install the immature resource packs, instead of everyone who plays the mod having access to them without having to do anything special.

Overall I see no harm to me in going that route, assuming there is an official up-to date file, and the staff will notify the language pack authors of the changes done to it.

In the end, I don't need the language pack to play the mod, its the others who will get to fiddle around with checking if theirs is latest, downloading and installing more packages on top of the mod.

Pretty sure mc doesn't have version control to do that.

I tried to write that down, but somehow my English failed at that moment to make a coherent sentence of it. But that was my thought exactly too.

 

I also do agree with Kittychanley, that it won't be TFC approved release in that case.

 

I'm just afraid that with such move, the translations will grind to a hold very quickly.

To the contrary, as it currently is the only way translations can update is if AliceInGame makes a PR to change the base code, and then a brand new version of TFC is released. By moving to resource packs, they are completely independent of our release schedule and translations can update as often as they'd like.

Sorry to bump an old thread. I was lead all the way here by tracing a single inaccurate translation  :P

 

I saw kitty already removed the l10n part from TFC2 project, but are you still accepting PR for translation amendment in TFC1?

 

It is sad to find out this whole project already "grinds to a hold" even before TFC2 release though. I don't think I have enough PM experience to comment on whether "solving the problem by completely avoiding it" is the best approach, but there must be a reason why Linux kernel still tries to include drivers even though some of them are not perfect. And having the l10n files inside the pack provides much better end user experience for non-English-speaking players.
