    posted a message on YASR (Yet Another Sunperp Rule) # 356: No conversations about the future
    Quote from BigGrayGolem»

    This thread just became overt evidence of the problem.



    I appreciate that you're frustrated by what you perceive to be unfair or unreasonable moderation but you have on multiple occasions in this thread insulted others and made statements that are untrue. This thread is if anything a demonstration of how much we are committed to giving members the opportunity to share their thoughts, because if we were focused exclusively on protecting our own feelings then we would have deleted this thread and issued warnings for your rude remarks that have been made towards others.


    As the moderation action taken by sunperp has already been discussed I'd like to focus on another point you've made. You've talked about how our moderation is impacting our advertisement revenue, and hurting the business, and how we need to adjust the way we moderate to run this business. These remarks are made based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the way that this business operates, if you combine all of the traffic to the Discussion forum and all of the traffic to the Suggestions forum it would barely scrape a single percentage point of our total website traffic, and this has been true throughout the lifetime of the website. The Discussion and Suggestions forums are important parts of our community and we moderate them with that in mind, because they are meaningful to our community of Minecraft players, but they are not (and have never been) a meaningful portion of our revenue.

    Your feedback is appreciated, as is the feedback from any member of this forum, but you must provide that feedback in a polite and courteous manner. Labelling people you disagree with as autistic, or shouting about how they are tanking a business, really isn't appropriate and is not conducive to a meaningful conversation. The reason the replies to this thread have been somewhat hostile is because you started off the discussion in a very hostile manner, and have used it more as an opportunity to post slights against others than to work with us to improve the way the forum is moderated.

    posted a message on Minecraft Forums Vs AdFly

    Yes, anyone can use AdFly here. We recommend against it because AdFly often deliver malicious adverts to users, but it's your choice. We recommend using CurseForge instead and using the CurseForge widget to create a great download experience for your players.

    posted a message on Posts Tab on Account Incomplete

    This isn't intentional, there's a software bug, the development team are aware and it should be fixed soon. Sorry about the inconvenience in the meantime :(

    posted a message on Last active 1999

    The default Last Active date is January 1st 2000, however because times are localised it can sometimes manifest itself as December 31st 1999. There is a forum bug preventing Last Active from updating correctly, meaning for some users who've never had a Last Active time set (usually a new user) their Last Active will show as the default.

    posted a message on Broken Fonts

    This is a known issue, unfortunately any font with a space in the name (eg: "comic sans") won't render and will produce the broken output. You can find a list of usable fonts in my post here: http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/forums/forum-discussion-info/2712226-problem-with-book-antiqua-font#c2

    posted a message on I have a cold so I made a few avatars

    I woke up this morning with a feeling of emptiness inside, I couldn't put my finger on it, I couldn't understand why I felt so empty, but now I know. I feel whole again. 8MB of furry husbandos is just what I needed. Thank you.

    posted a message on How to advertise your Minecraft Server Host on the Minecraft Forum

    The Minecraft Server Hosts section requires that all hosts meet the following requirements:


    1. The business must be a legally registered business and that business registration information must be displayed on the business website.

    2. The business website must have a Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

    3. The business website and control panels must follow security best practices, connections must be secured.

    4. All software used by the business must be registered to the business where applicable.

    5. Representatives of the business must not have a history of Minecraft Forum rule violations.


    Decisions on whether or not to accept an application are made at the discretion of the Minecraft Forum staff. The question we ask when reviewing an application is "do we believe that this host will provide a high quality and secure service to our members?" and if we have doubts about the answer then we will not accept the application.


    Applicants should expect a decision within 5 business days, however as this is a free service we make no guarantees about response time, and applicants must not submit multiple applications if they have received confirmation of receipt of their application.


    To apply email [email protected] with a copy of the form below filled in with your information. Attach any relevant documents to the email.

    Name of business:
    Website:
    How long has the business been offering Minecraft services:
    Your Minecraft Forum profile link:
    
    Attach business registration documentation to this email, or provide links to a service where we can verify your business registration.


    A host that is accepted will be asked to agree to the following terms:


     1. All representatives of the company must list "I am a representative of [company]" in their signature, [company] must be the name of the company as listed on minecraftforum.net with the name linking to the thread.
    
    2. All representatives of the company must abide by all forum rules. All company representatives are the responsibility of the company operator(s).
    
    3. All representatives of the company will not at any point engage in any flaming of any other host and will not post anything in any other hosts thread. If they believe another host to be breaking the rules they must report the post and move on.
    
    4. A company representative must be available to respond to any contact from minecraftforum.net forum staff members within 5 business days.
    
    5. A company MUST NOT represent itself as approved by minecraftforum.net, hosts that we have permitted to post on minecraftforum.net in the hosting section do not have any approval from minecraftforum.net, only permission to post.
    
    6. A company and the representatives of that company must not at any point solicit reviews from their customers (or other associates) for a reward. Encouraging reviews is acceptable, offering a reward (discounts, account credit, free services) is not and any instance will result in dismissal from minecraftforum.net.
    
    7. All companies are expected to understand that minecraftforum.net can expect appropriate behaviour from all companies and can terminate any companies access to the forum at any time if behaviour from that company or it's representatives is deemed to be unacceptable.

    posted a message on Taking out the trash.

    Age of a thread doesn't usually dictate the usefulness of a thread, in fact some very old threads on the forum are some of the most popular, the Optifine thread is from April 2011 and remains very popular, for both viewership and replies :) There are certainly improvements to make with regards to the way that the forum is organised and to help people understand which threads are most relevant to what they're looking for -- and if that's support, it's probably more recent threads -- but those issues wouldn't be resolved by deleting/locking all threads over x years old.
