    posted a message on What happened to Vattic and his Faithful resourcepack thread?

    Vattic didnt delete his thread. what happened was he became inactive due to irl problems. When the ownership of MCF changed hands to a european company, according to EU law, users are required to state that they allow the new owner to store their info, or else their account and info gets deleted. V|attic was inactive and missed all that. |Hopefully he will be able to restore both his account and thread.


    Magic Find, the Company that now owns us, and the previous owners, Fandom, are American Companies. The rest of this statement however is correct.

    If Vattic returns they can submit a request via our support email to try and recover his account. If we can, thread recovery would come later.

    Quote from journeymanmc»

    So I just want to add one thing, on some of the pages such as Minecraft Forum List, I'm having a hard time reading some of the headlines (silver-grey on white), is it possible to add text-colors with bigger contrast?


    Just to clarify what you are asking, are you referring to the header that contains "Forum", "Latest Post", "Threads", and "Posts", or "Recent Updates and Snapshots" along with the latest thread responded to, to the right?



    If its neither of these you are referring to could you provide a screenshot, if possible, so I can be sure to understand what you are asking?

    posted a message on No more 'Link Removed'

    Asking them to not post is futile sadly as they are only interested in sharing the link and not actually being a member of the forums.

    The people posting those are not always bots, but people who were led to believe that they would make money by sharing videos here via spam youtube videos on "how to get rich". We catch a lot of these, but if we miss any please help by using the Report Button below their posts.

    posted a message on Future Changes to Site Rules

    Greetings all!


    A lot has changed over the years. We, the staff, have been discussing changes for the forum for a while now. We have many changes and a list of things we would love changed on the forum but require a bit more work than just a flip of a switch or a line changed in the backend code. For now, we'd like to start off with something that will get the ball moving to prepare for future changes.


    It's no secret that we are extremely strict, and going forward we'd like to ease up and foster a better relationship between moderation and members. So for starters, I'll list a few things that are in discussion.

    • Reviewing our stance on Profanity.
    • Bumping as a whole and especially in the Server Section specifically.
    • Removing Section Rules and just expanding the General Rules

    We'd love to hear your feedback and will be taking everyone's opinions and suggestions into consideration. We'd love to discuss everyone's thoughts on what needs adjusting, what people think should be removed, or even if there is something members would like added to the rules going forward.




    I'd like to add information and add points which you all have been making. I may not have everyone's exact wording but a lot of suggestions were similar. Those have been combined and are as followed as below:

    Regarding Servers

    • Only allow server owners to share their server once every X amount of days.
    • Require server owners to use offsite applications or private messages instead of forum thread replies to put “popular” threads on the same level as “new/unpopular” threads who do not bump/have responses to keep the thread active on the front page.

    Regarding Bumping

    • Review bumping in the server section. Possibly loosen up what is or isn’t considered a “significant” update.
    • Allow forum server owners to bump their thread once every X amount of day/s.

    Regarding Profanity

    • Ease up, but not outright remove.
    • Clarify openly about what is and isn’t allowed.
    • Allow self censoring.

    posted a message on You are marking my threads as spam and it is frustrating me

    After your account reaches 10 posts the automatic filter should ease up on you. Your posts are not marked as spam now but I did remove a duplicate thread due to your attempt to repost.


    If you have any further issues message a member of staff. We are always happy to help.

    posted a message on (edited - my issue with moderators has been resolved and there appears to have been a misunderstanding)

    I'd like to add that the forum has no setting that blocks a member from posting on an active thread. Claiming that we purposely blocked you from posting on a thread is something that is impossible. If it is open (not locked) anyone is able to respond to the thread. If you had posts removed without requests there are times we do remove posts.

    Circumstances are as followed:

    1. Member requests a post to be deleted/or post breaks forum rules. If someone replied/quoted this post we normally try to remove posts that quote/respond to the post. No warnings are issued.

    2. The entire thread has been requested to be deleted/breaks forum rules.


    3. Possibly a site error as they are not too uncommon around here, but generally will correct themselves.

    4. If a post you created breaks forum rules but is not recent we would still remove rule-breaking threads/posts but not warn. We're strict here, but we're not so strict we will warn you from a few weeks ago.

    • The exception to this is more glaring in the server section. There are cases where we will close old threads after new information is brought to light. These cases are normally regarding review rewards or if a server owner shows that they do not plan to follow the forum rules. Servers have been banned from posting on our forum for violating the spirit of fairness.

    Edited to add a point for an exception to 4.

    posted a message on Server Recruitment Rule Needs Changing

    The Server Recruitment section is for Server Owners to find staff. This is not a section for anyone to find a builder or developer for a personal project. This section has never been for individuals to share their personal application for server owners to respond to with their own thread. There is a fundamental difference with a staff owner recruiting developers, builders, moderators, ect for their server and individuals creating a post stating that they are a builder looking to build on a server ect. The individual may even be a representative of a group offering their skills to server owners but that makes little difference in the point of the section.

    This is why the rule is phrased the way it is.

    To summarize quickly above:

    What Is Allowed

    • Server Owners to recruit builders/developers/staff to help with their server via one thread provided that it follows the Server Recruitment rules.
    • Server Owners can offer payment to those they hire.

    What is Not Allowed

    • Server Owners looking for beta testers. These threads are better suited to the actual Servers Sections.
    • Individuals/Teams applications directed towards server owners to be hired. Paid or not.
    • Individuals/Teams recruiting for personal projects unrelated to an actual Server. (build teams/dev teams/youtube/livestreams)

    posted a message on 🙄Fix the Server Lists forums 🙄 You dont even need to add full server lists back 🙄 just fix your rules and moderating

    Forum posts are not and have never been ideal for Server listings. This is something we are looking into.


    We do moderate the Servers Section of the forum to the best of our ability. We do miss posts. If you find something we missed please submit a report so that it won't be overlooked. We don't announce moderator actions nor do we publicly announce when a member breaks a rules.

    The Minecraft Forums welcomes everyone from all walks of life. While we don't have a specific profile field for gender there is nothing stopping you from adding that info to your profile's bio at this time.
