      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."

I think more bow types could be good.

We could have crossbows with really long draw time(like 10~15 seconds) but heavy damage, longbows with longer range, etc

 

Oh and an idea.

What if we had a cloak+hood, that takes up both head and chest armor slots, but covers your face, chest, arms(possibly) and prevents your nametag from showing?

It'll effectively let you do things in secret, and you won't have to shift 24/7 to prevent your nametag from being read/detected through walls

 

Also, I think it'll be nice if some weapons had 'effects' when used.

Like, a dagger has a really short reach, but can give heavy damage or a chance 'bleeding' debuff(makes mobs target bleeding player first, damage like posion), A lance has long reach but is slow, but on horseback, deals heavy knockback and damage, a mace can 'daze' a mob/player with a strong hit(slow, nausea, blindness combo would work)

Is it just me, or is this thread kinda dying?

 

I think armor should take time to take off/on.

'clothing' type armor(say, leather) would be taken on/off easily.

'light' armor(say, chain or scale.) would take some time.

'heavy' armor(plate, for example) would take lots of time, and need a armor changing-station type thing, or another player to put it on/off you

You can't move while putting armor on/off, and if you move or get hurt, all armor peaces that you are putting on will drop(not requested armor or off ones, but say plate takes 5 seconds to put on. someone tries to put it on/off you, they click the armor peace, but before 5 seconds passes, you or the one putting the armor on/off you moves or gets hit, then the armor you where trying to put on/off at the time will drop as an item)

Also, arrows should need a quiver to carry around effectively(say, if not in quiver, it doesn't stack)

and even in the quiver, it should only stack up to 20, 30 ish. 

As of now, one dedicated archer could carry/fire enough arrows to wipe out a entire army

It's not dead as much as most everything has been said. In fact, most of this idea has been suggested in the my repost/compilation of this thread. It's a good idea none the less

Oh yea, shields.

At first, I thought about it, but I thought it would need duel-welding to work properly, and the main reason for a shield is to attack and defend at the same time

And I couldn't think of a way for duel-welding to work nicely, I dropped the idea. But a armor slot for shields is a great idea.

I think shields should protect your left side(to some degree(also, I think switching hands, like say, sword on left, shield on right could be interesting) even when not actively used.

 

There should be a small shield, for cheap, light, defensive measures, it would protect less, but be good for early defense and light infantry/scouts.

 

A 'normal' shield for average stats, good, all-round sheild

 

A big/heavy shield, 100% damage reduction, huge durability, full protection when active(all front side protected), even wood needs some metal(to reinforce it) when crafting.

Extremely heavy, horrible mobility when moving

--

Don't really feel good about that part of that idea, as there would be too many shields in the game, more items, more lag I think (I know that's not the main cause we lag). Well, I look forward to being a peltast, use an arched shield and throw my javelins ;)

Shields could be equiped like an armor peice and have their own  hit box, right clicking with a weapon and a shield equipt would raise the shield to full guard
