      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 Unofficial TerraFirmaCraft Wiki

The Unofficial TerraFirmaCraft Wiki


This thread is based around the new, unofficial wiki for TFCraft. The reason I made this wiki, is due to the fact that the official one is locked, and as such, not very informative. Therefore, this wiki is for the community to edit, format, do whatever with. TFCraft needs a place for information and help, and the official wiki doesn't provide this currently. I don't mean to offend the creator of the official one by doing this, mind you, however it really seems necessary.


I know I've already linked it, but it's buried in a thread about the official one, and as such, isn't very easy to find. This wiki needs more articles, help however you can!

I would have to bet that the dev would rather be working on his programming than working on documentation for others.

Hopefully he is ok with it.

I meant the creator of the official wiki, spAnsers or something along those lines, not the creator of the mod.

I thought Crysyn did the wiki?

All I could find from an extremely small amount of research is this, which isn't being maintained. If you mean Crysyn made the official wiki, I'm not entirely sure about that. The only other unofficial wiki I could find for TFCraft was in German, which isn't very helpful to most.

...already linked it, but it's burrowed in a thread about...

Burrow means to tunnel - burrowed being the past tense form. I think you mean buried?

Yep. I was pretty tired when I wrote this thread, sorry. It's fixed now, anyway.

Recently, some morons decided to remove a lot of content, with messages like "PENIS PENIS PENIS", and similar. It was reverted in about 5 minutes.

The moronic behavior that was mentioned above is part of the reason why our wiki is closed to the public. I don't do any wiki editing myself, however we do allow a several others besides spAnser to edit the wiki. Another large part of why the wiki is closed, is due to people at the old wiki decompiling the mod and posting raw data that is not intended to be shared. TFCraft is not meant to be a numbers game. As soon as important raw numbers get exposed, it changes the entirety of how players think about the game when they play. If you feel the wiki is missing something, recommend it in a pm or a post here on the forums, and spAnser or someone else will get to it.

Lastly, and very importantly, having numerous wikis floating around does not bode well for the future when something changes. I can have someone quickly modify the current wiki when I make an important change, but if an unofficial wiki is floating about with no-one maintaining it, people are liable to be following bad advice. Please stick to the official wiki and recommend changes as needed.

I'm locking this thread because I do not approve of an unofficial wiki.

Apparently I need to address this so I'll do it here. This thread was not closed because of some rage issue. I closed it on order to prevent this from catching on. Simple as that. The current wiki is whitelisted. If you want access, all you need to do is make an account at the wiki and ask for editing permission. It's really quite simple.
