      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."

Hello hello! A couple things:

1. Flesh out your idea a bit more. Give diseases, descriptions, how to cure them, ect. Do more than just say: "We should have x", explain what is is and how it would be implimented

2. Graphic diseases fall under the "Do not suggest" list, so no STDs (or ebola).

You don't get the cold or flu when isolated, it is a fact of life. You have to be in a population who is passing around the virus. I have some friends who lived in the Alaska Range for years and they never got sick. Only when they come back into town for some reason a few times a year did they ever catch a cold.

 

 

Bacterial diseases from poor sanitation and such are the big deal with primitive living.

 

 

STDs? Are you serious? First, what makes you think that early man was running around screwing everything in sight? This is an unsubstantiated claim. Regardless of the absurdity of the idea it is completely inappropriate to TFC.

 

 

What is this "Early Man" you refer to? Does it make sense that "Early Man" would be out making blast furnaces and forging tools from various steel alloys? This is ridiculous.

 

 

While I agree that Sanitation can be a major problem, I do not think the developers would add it to TFC. This is because they have stated  that they will not add "gross stuff" to the mod. This subject came up while discussing animal droppings.

The devs only implement ideas they want to

 

I know recent polls have made it look like they cater to public opinion a lot, but they don't do it a whole lot

 

Just because a suggestion hits this forum, doesn't mean you have to respond to it to say you don't like it to prevent it from being implemented

 

Take a look at this suggestion:

 

It mentions diseases, a topic that has been discussed frequently (therefore it doesn't need to be discussed again) in a 1 sentance line

 

It mentions implementing STDs, which implies that sexual mechanics would have to be implemented first. We all know the devs would never do this

 

My point is you can ignore posts like this. Now if a dev or Kitty actually took interest in a really bad idea, then there is certainly cause for concern and objections would need to be raised
