      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'm just going to throw a time out... I'll start looking for people on the forums at 9:00am PST on Saturday. It probably won't be until 12:00pm or later that we'll be ready to start, since they'll be lots of issues to think through (teams, the map, server issues, teamspeak). I've upgraded my computer and got all the port-forwarding server issues worked out, although I have yet to test my computer with more than 3 players on the server at once. If anyone wants to try to test it out tomorrow (starting at 9:00am ish), that would be great.

Incompatibility, you're welcome to think about making a map... but please try to stick to the genre of this game (mining, farming, hunting, smelting). Go for a natural style... it will make it easy since it's less work to actually do, plus it will give it that 'survival age of empires' feel. If you're going to make ore deposits to balance fairness, stick them under the dirt and mark them with a sign or something. My suggestion would also be that the higher tier the ore is, the deeper down it should be (so for example, x blocks of bismuth would be 4 blocks underground x blocks of copper would be 16 blocks underground). If you can, make the spawning room out of obsidian or bedrock, and build pressure plates outside that open the spawning doors for each team room. Make sure the ore deposits are at least 200m or so away from the spawn building. I've started creating a basic map, but I won't be modifying it much besides balanced bismuth and copper deposits, and removing any obvious advantage that one map side has.

It would still be great for people to look for anyone who can run a dedicated server.

Well we could to make an randomised area, take up an area of the world and lift it up.

Then mirror it to the other side and wall between, with spawn house and gates to enemy territory in the wall "migth be bedrock but glass as texture

Wow, not sure about how to do the world-shaping, but come on and show me tomorrow.

http://canihostaminecraftserver.com/ tells me I should be able to run a server with 10 people, so it might be possible to do a larger game than I expected. Then again, comcast sucks.

Mumble's good, I prefer it.

Context is how you interpret or understand something based off what you know. He was complaining that you were making him sound "out" of context because you were posting in front of him. This means people wouldn't really understand what he is saying, because what he said was referring to something said before you.

You actually didn't do anything wrong, he was just teasing you.

The rules have been updated to reflect all of the input you guys have provided. If you're interested in playing tomorrow or this weekend, please make sure your name is on the list! I will be looking at this list first if we get a lot of people lining up to play.

The only problem with putting signs on top of the ores is people could just dig straight down to the ores. Unless of course it's just a general sign that says this is where the ores are.

I'm still for my Dungeon idea but instead of chests, since you want to keep mining involved, have actual ores in the dungeon you can mine.

I'm not sure If any of you guys have played Mabinogi but the only place to get ores in the game was by doing a dungeon mining the ore after you clear a room. I could do something like that.
