      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."

If you want to edit the wiki.

200 posts in this topic

If you want to edit the wiki and feel that you have a good grasp on TerraFirmaCraft, leave a reply here with your username that you've created at the official wiki. Please do not add your name here unless you fully intend to be an active editor. It takes time for me whitelist you, time which is better spent actually working on the mod, the forums, and the wiki.

 

You must meet at least one of the following requirements in order to get editor status. These requirements are primarily here so that I know that you are an active member of the community, and that you are able to communicate with me to make sure that the edits you wish to make are approved and correct before you make them. I've been adding a few people and they aren't editing, or they are making many small edits that I have to go back and revert because they are incorrect, so this will stop folks from wasting my time. Sorry to those that genuinely want to contribute.

  • At least 100 posts on the forums. These posts will be used to gauge your knowledge of the mod, so spamming random questions and irrelevant replies will not help you here. I would strongly suggest that if you wish to choose to fulfill this requirement, that your posts are either guides, discussion, or answering questions in support. If your post history shows you asking a question that has already clearly been answered elsewhere either in multiple other posts, or explicitly in the change log, it is very likely that your application will be denied.
  • Become an active member in our IRC channel. A lot of communication must take place before making larger edits to the wiki. A live chat such as IRC makes this communication much easier as replies are sent quickly back and forth, rather than the slower option of private messages on the forum, the wiki, or emails. Please note that this activity must be happening when I am around, as I do not scroll through any logs of past chat in the channel.
  • An understanding of TFC's code. This option is primarily there for those who wish to make very small or minor edits to the wiki, such as changes in numbers. This is also an option for those who do not wish to flesh out all of the proper formatting of information in the wiki, but instead would like to provide a basic framework of information that a page would be based on. Providing such framework including class names and line numbers makes my life much easier when it comes to the research for writing a page.

Bioxx has only one major rule when it comes to editing the wiki, failure to follow this rule will result in immediate termination of your editor status.

  • Do not add raw numbers that are used in the code behind the scenes. Bioxx does not want TerraFirmaCraft to be treated as a math game where everyone min/maxes and only ever follows one route. If you wish to play that way then good for you, but adding raw numbers to the wiki will affect the way that everyone else plays the game as well. You cannot un-see the numbers once they've been seen. Please respect this rule.

I myself have a few guidelines that must be followed when editing the wiki, but they are a bit more flexible and it is unlikely that your editor status will be revoked for breaking the guidelines, unless you are doing it consistently.

  • Preview your edits before saving them. The fewer saved edits that are made on a page, the less revisions I have to dig through when searching for something in the history of the page. The preview button is there so that you can double check your formatting for simple mistakes such as spelling errors, or a missing character in a table that breaks all of the columns and rows. The page should be as accurate as possible and ready to be viewed by the entire public when you hit save.
  • Follow the provided Style Guide. There is a certain look and style to the TFC wiki that may be different from other wikis that you have visited or edited. In the majority of cases, there are reasons why we follow a different style. Please ask if you have questions about any part of this guide.
  • If you wish to make any changes other than minor edits (like complete page or section overhauls), please ask me first. All of my contact information can be found on the Contact Us page. Once you prove yourself as a skilled wiki editor that provides accurate information (not conjecture) and properly follows the style guide, you will be able to make larger changes without prior approval.

Please keep in mind that all of your edits will be monitored, and you will be notified of any changes or rollbacks that are made due to mistakes.

 

I take extreme pride in this wiki, and how far it has come. In 99.9% of cases, I have final say of what goes on the wiki, and what does not. There are a handful of reasons why this wiki is not open to public editing. Please respect our wishes to make this wiki the best that it can be. If you do not wish to go through the effort it takes to become a trusted wiki editor, but you would still like to contribute or help, the Talk section of every page is open to public editing. To access the Talk section of any page, click on the tab at the top left of the page which says "Discussion."

Hi! I just found your mod and it's amazing. I have a lot of free time, and would like to edit the wiki, as a lot of things are missing from it that would have helped me enormously when I first started playing, and I'd like to be able to add these things as I find them for the benefit of others who have similar problems.

Hey, so, what exactly constitutes 'raw numbers'?

Obviously something like 'cassiterite has a 0.00X% spawn rate and occurs with a XX% chance per chunk' is out of the question, but where does it stop? Would something observable like 'A thrown spear will travel a maximum of X blocks' be acceptable? Or is the numpad banned entirely

The things that are unacceptable would be like the values for "perfect" metal shaping on the anvil, the actual durability for the different armor types, etc. The javelin flight distance seems to me something that would be fine as public knowledge.

I would like to help out. My username on the wiki is the same as it is here (zache51).

I would be unable to break rule 1 since I have no idea of any of those values ^^.

Observable stuff in game is perfectly fine. The issue comes from people who look at the source and decide to make tables of raw data(this was done at the old wiki).

I have noticed that the wiki is very lacking in some parts. I am willing to take the time to fill in some of the pages so it isn't so empty. I like the mod a lot, but there are many questions I have had. Hopefully helping with this mod can answer a lot of those. Thank you for the epic mod. Username is Blargosaur
