    posted a message on Forum punishes the best contributors, is kind to the worst

    The forum rules that can realistically lead to posting suspensions are the forum rules that are most important to our ethos of providing "...a safe, secure and family friendly environment for Minecraft fans of all ages to share and discover their love for Minecraft". Members who are polite and constructive are rarely, if ever, going to risk any form of posting suspension because the forum rules that they might violate (while remaining polite and constructive) are rules that we'll initially issue friendly rule reminder warnings for, which carry no points, and only members who repeatedly break these sort of rules (for example bumping, duplicate threads, necroposting) in a short period of time would gain enough points to receive posting suspensions.


    I have reviewed every posting suspension issued in August so far and every single one has been issued to a member who either broke one of the rules around being polite (flaming, profanity, inappropriate material) after having received previous warnings for that behaviour, or someone who has broken one of the other rules (bumping, advertising, duplicate threads) numerous times in a short period of time.


    There are members who have made thousands and thousands of posts without ever receiving a warning for flaming, or using profanity, as their attitude is not one that would ever lead them to behave in a way that could be considered anything but polite and constructive, and for many of those who have received a warning for that behaviour, it was the last time they ever engaged in it. Everybody can have a bad day once in a while and might say something out of character that leads to a warning, but only those who consistently come to the forum with a bad attitude towards others will ever risk being excluded from the forum for any length of time.

    posted a message on HTTPS on Forum and Wiki?

    The reason that a lot of media websites like this don't use https across the site is because of advertisements, unfortunately advertisement technology is years behind the rest of the internet in quite a few ways and by enabling https site wide we would greatly harm our ability to deliver advertisements -- which is an important part of our business.


    The pages that require security, like login and account management, are all served over https (without adverts) to provide security, and long term we hope to serve the whole site over https because we agree that level is security is best :)

    Lost it again, even though my downloads this month are the highest they've ever been.



    Since this thread was created Curse Premium has been retired, you can learn more about that here: https://mods.curse.com/news/curse/52112-curse-premium-update, this means that you are no longer eligible for automatic Curse Premium based on CurseForge downloads. Over time any existing Curse Premium entitlements on this forum will expire, and members will be returned to their default Registered Member status.

    Any member that was previously eligible for free Curse Premium is welcome to contact me and I will manually subscribe their account to Advertisement Free benefits on the forum. I have done this for you already macadamia238, please let me know if you run into any issues with seeing advertisements on the forum.

    posted a message on How to upload a .gif as a profile/avatar picture?
    Quote from gameo7»

    I was having trouble trying to upload a gif file to my avatar. It comes out as just one image. I was wondering how you did it. And NO I DON'T CARE THAT THIS POST IS A COUPLE YEARS OLD IT WAS THE ONLY ONE I COULD FIND


    An animated avatar will only animate if it's less than or equal to 100px x 100px. You should resize on a third party service if the avatar you'd like to use is greater than 100 x 100.

    posted a message on Why is Necroposting so bad?

    First it's important to understand that necroposting is when you reply to an old thread unnecessarily, if there's justification for replying to an old thread (for example you have interesting new information to add to a thread that will be valuable to those that have posted in it, and people who stumble across the thread) then you are welcome to reply to that thread.


    Replying to a thread brings that thread back to the front page and notifies those who've subscribed (usually by posting in it) that there's a new reply. If a thread hasn't been active for a long time, and then you reply with something like "cool!" or "I like this" then you're sending a notification to potentially hundreds of people for something they aren't going to care about, and you're bringing a thread back to the front page that nobody else has interest in discussing.

    posted a message on Introductions & Leavings

    I guess I'll give it a go: My name is Samuel Ryan and I found Minecraft through my younger brother a few days after it was released. I signed up a couple of weeks later and now I play quite a bit of it. In my freetime I make websites and play games, but I don't do that much gaming. I'm 17 and my fulltime job is to make websites, I programmed minecraftskins.net and also host this place. I'm extremely lazy.


    I guess that's me :)
