    Kinda a cool idea, but hey, DING DING, isn't this game about creating stuff in-game :S?

    Damn people are lazy. :3

    As far as I can tell the point behind this is creating custom level bases, so instead of having a randomly generated map that you have no control over, you build your own map with this then anyone can build over it. For example, you could build a giant castle and have users modify it in game, or a big city where users can design their own building insides, which would take hundreds of hours to do manually.

    If you're interested in creating your own maps like Rosettas lava and water map, you'll need to take a look at the following article: Map Editing. It covers the basics of how maps work and how to modify them!

    Can everyone set their titles? I think you shouldn't be able to set your own titles. (I could change mmine) And what titles are there? When do you get a title?

    Moderators and administrators can set their own titles, normal users cannot. You also have the ability to ban and modify user names, in case they want it changed or it can be seen as offensive.

    Another thing, Minecraft wiki forum should really be under Minecraft and not under Miscellaneous.

    I'll move that now :smile.gif:

    When I have moved a topic, can I remove the moved topic information where the topic first was, afterwards? I got the option when I moved it but now I don't have that option anymore.

    Do you mean the redirection topic? If you untick the box when moving it nothing should show up. I don't know exactly what you mean.

    Oh, and it would be good with a moderators/administrators forum maybe?

    Sure thing, I'll set that up now :smile.gif:

    There we go, you can now all have images in your signatures! Just make sure they're not too big or nsfw :smile.gif:

    The files are compressed. You'll need to unzip them with a program such as 7zip, then open the resulting file with a hex editor, then rezip in gzip form and rename to server_level.dat for it to be usable again.

    I can set up some off topic forums no problem, do you have any specific suggestions as to what you'd like to see? Just off topic chat and games? In regards to avatars I've upped the size to 120x 120, I do plan on eventually working in your minecraft character skins with profiles but it might require quite a bit of work. Private messaging: I'll take a look at switching that to a proper system, I forgot that some people dislike being limited to emails and want email addresses kept private. I'll see what I can do with signatures, images should definitely be allowed, as long as you can be trusted to keep them of a reasonable size :wink.gif:

    all user titles starting with either capital or lower case, not a mix as it is now

    My apologies, really bad habit of mine is switching between case. It's fixed now.

    very nice, started modding the other forum today and noticed it took about five tries to delete a single post.. and it was strangly complicated to do so even when it worked. this seems like a good option :smile.gif:

    I'll set you up with moderation access here :smile.gif:

    phpBB isn't that bad, it's just raperific when it's broken.

    I don't mind phpbb, I just dislike the overly complicatedness of it. The forums for minecraft don't really need that much functionality, they're just basic... forums. phpbb3 is designed more for 'advanced' needs, they have an exponential amount of useless permissions that are a huge pain to set up, especially when it's just a matter of post topics and reply, nothing more is needed. I chose fluxbb because of the huge amount of customisability, it's only a base system, so if the forums do take off I could quite easily integrate player skins into profiles and things like that.

    posted a message on Server administration
    Included in the server installation and set up files is a read me file, this contains all the commands that administrators (ops) can use, however quite often ops do not have access to this file. The commands are as follows:

    /op This turns a player into an administrator (op) they can use all OP commands.
    /deop Removes administrator (op) permissions from a user.
    /kick Kicks a player from the server, they can rejoin instantly.
    /ban Bans a player from the server, they can not log back into the server with the same account.
    /unban Removes a players ban, they can rejoin once unbanned.
    /banip This IP bans a player, they cannot rejoin with the same account or a new account. IP bans can only be removed with direct access to ban-ips.txt by the main administrator.
    /say Sends a chat message without the name.
    /setspawn This sets the current location of the player executing as the new spawn location for all players joining the server after it has been set.

    citricsquid: If a community forum got popular, I'd make it the "official unofficial" minecraft forum

    Notch is concentrating on the game and due to the problems with the current forums he said he'd be open to having someone else run the forums. I'm sure if we can turn this into an active community he'll be willing to redirect all users here and turn this into the 'official forum'.

    Hi,
    This forum is new so we'll obviously have things that need to be changed and/or improved, so I'm asking you, you lovely miners for your ideas! Is there anything you want to see on the forum? Any things you don't like? Any ideas how the forum should be ran?

    All ideas are welcome!
