      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."

Complements, that other types of Bulat.
It was such a legendary Indian damask. And how long ago lost trade secret? Indeed, now is not precisely known technology that was used in ancient India. It is so carefully concealed that to 17-18 century secret was lost. This is due to a decrease in demand for damask caused by the start of production of high-quality and low-cost blade weapon of industrial steel, which first led to a reduction in the smelting of Damascus steel in India, and then to a complete stop it.
Numerous attempts to uncover the secret of Damascus steel researchers were unsuccessful. However, the Russian metallurgist Pavel Petrovich Anosov at the beginning of the XIX century the technology was developed, with which he managed to get steel, corresponding to the pattern and quality of the best varieties of Indian damask steel. It is based on this technology pour damask now. The main mistake of researchers to Anosov was that they were trying to get the pattern due to additives in the chemical composition of the alloy. Only Anosov during the experiments failed to prove that Bulat differs from ordinary steel is not the chemical composition and physical structure.
According to well-established more or less the terminology in Russia today, the word "damask" is commonly understood is cast Bulat. I adhere to this variant on its website.
Types of Damascus steel (chemical composition)
Despite the fact that the understanding of the basis of Damascus steel is its physical structure, it, as well as any steel composition may contain besides iron and carbon additional elements. If damask is melted on the basis of carbon steel with the addition of iron, and part of the auxiliary input only natural impurities in small amounts, such damask called "carbon". As with all carbon steel it is prone to rust. Modern metallurgy, has a vast range of alloy steels, pushed artists to create a "doped" and "stainless" Damascus steel. They are melted based alloy steels and can be corrosion resistant.

Vutts (Wootz)
In the old days, after melting ingot or damask unfetters on the spot or so and sold in the form of ingot, called "vutts." Caravans with them went far beyond India. These ingots were in the form of a small loaf. Thus, the word "vutts" means it is an ancient Indian ingot smelting.
The English word "wootz" serves as a definition of the ingot, and Damascus steel in general. Including modern damask also called "wootz". To indicate damask blade used phrase "Wootz Blade" or "Wootz Damascus Blade".
Vutts, XVIII century. The maximum dimensions of 53 * 44mm. Weight 1 pound (about 450g).
