    posted a message on Furthering over reporting and user abuse
    I once in the past made a post here about the over reporting of innocent thread creators here on the minecraft forums due to other members of the forums reaching out and making rash decisions. also countless thread comments consisting of a few short words "reported for _____"

    I do believe that you are merely asking to cause a stir by posting such things on threads and it appears some members whom are doing this most often are doing exactly this. Though it is not as blatant as other forms of harassment and trolling I find it to be just as bad though not for us so much but for the moderators of this forum. Users are now given the option to "Warn" other players merely adding to the ability to cause frustration between members of this community.

    Not that i find it entirely wrong to have the ability to do so. It is the fact that each member can see who had reported them and for what they were reporting, now half of that is acceptable and the other half is not.

    We are all capable of composing a respectful suggestion to the poster of the thread, and if said poster happens to respond with hostility than please do report them it keeps our forums a bit cleaner of disrespectful and harassing chatter.

    thanks for reading,

    posted a message on Building projects and tutorials
    Hey Minecrafters!

    Been a while since i have posted anything here on the forums or even played minecraft for that matter. I figured it is probably about time to think about continuing with builds and such that i have been doing in the past, perhaps a couple of you may recognize my name from any youtube videos I have done.

    if you are interested in the videos a link is in my sig

    I did a tutorial video and had planned to make more if there turned out to be a demand for them however my Star Wars builds seemed to have drawn in more of a crowd so perhaps I will do another one. I'm not great at coming up with ideas myself so any recommendations would not be in vein and would also be greatly appreciated. If none of that interests you I would certainly be grateful for some feedback on my already completed builds you can view via my youtube channel.

    I'm also interested in finding a small group of builders to take on projects with (not looking for just another free build server.) So if any of you whom have these groups find my work exceptional enough I would be happy to join you.

    anyways please leave a comment either here or on my channel with any questions/comments/suggestions. I will also leave a poll with basic options for those of you whom wish not to write out a formal response.

    Thank you for your interest,
    Shiv

    posted a message on Ello im Shivarudra
    Hey Minecrafters!

    Hey everyone. It has been quite some time before i have made any posts on these forums or really played much minecraft at all. Perhaps a few of you recognize my name or maybe even subscribe to me on youtube and for that I am truly honored. I happen to be posting today simply because I think its time i get back and do a few more builds for everyone especially my subscribers or perhaps do some tutorials for anybody in need.

    I would be very happy if you checked out my channel www.youtube.com/user/shivarudra. Most of the stuff you will see on there is Star Wars related (huge Star Wars fan) but there is also a tutorial video on there as well. I am also lookin for a group of people I could join. I have lots of schematics for my creations and would love to have them put onto a server for players to enjoy (the towns i have created were meant to be completed by the players, therefore they would cease to be my towns and become every bodies town).

    Also you will notice that there is a tutorial there and it would be awesome if some of you left some comments here on the forums with what you think would make a good tutorial, and it can be anything you think a large number of people are having trouble with.

    feel free to leave any comments or questions here or even send me a private message, I will do my best to respond in a timely manner.

    Thanks for interest everyone!

    posted a message on Been a while
    hey everybody. its been a while since ive really done much with minecraft and i certainly havnt made any new videos for anyone to enjoy so id like for yall to check out my channel and give me a suggestion either on here or there on what i should do next. it can either be another how to video or perhaps another big build you think would be pretty cool.

    http://www.youtube.com/shivarudra

    thanks for checkin it out it means alot

    p.s. i posted here in classic because most of everything i build is done in classic :smile.gif: so my place is with the classic version followers!

    p.s.s. youll notice the videos are also done in MCedit and before i get any comments like "thats not minecraft" i do explain it all in one of my videos but what it is is that i do my videos in MCedit to give a full range view of everything ive built in a timely enough manner for a video rather than walking around (i dont use fly mods)

    thanks!

    posted a message on Notch, snow is way too annoying!
    Quote from Diamondx »
    Lol are you serious? Im suggesting that Notch add's a solution to snow, sorry for contributing to the community :Diamond:



    By the way, snow is all over my world, it's literally everywhere i go. Trust me, ive tried to move..


    then people will be asking for solutions to creepers. then asking solutions to how many hits it takes to break bedrock, than how much health you lose from getting hit by a skele archer.

    all in all, bitching and moaning ruins games

    thanks,

    posted a message on over reporting of forum threads (poll)
    Quote from msmit71 »
    We need the all of the above option. That's why I voted other. (I get to see the reports even when the person doesn't say "Reported". People report for a lot of stupid reasons, even when posts break no rules. Males actual work harder to get done.)


    were you able to catch this similar post i had in the discussion section ( i was unaware of the forum discussion topic) and another member was nice enough to basically follow what i was discussing and i followed through and made a bold note at the top that said i moved the thread. it was locked so im glad a moderator caught it i believe i made a note in my last reply that a moderator will probably find it and rightfully lock the thread, and therefor no one needs to get reported and now the thread is in the right section. but i can add an all of the above thats a good idea.

    *disclaimer* i am very much well aware that this could have just been a discussion and there is no need for a poll however i feel it is more legit for someone to see common numbers on answers other people have selection and may bring on more discussion, if you are unhappy with the poll options just select other and tell us all how you feel in the thread discussion! Thank you!

    also! in the poll questions this is all assuming that the thread post is appropriate and non-offensive!

    thread title is quite straight forward. i will list a few very broad and open ending options for what you think of over reporting of forum threads amongst any section of the mine craft forums and you are free to discuss as such. i understand it will be very tempting to become opinionated and argue on a topic you will never win. with that in mind please keep the discussion open minded and un-opinionated. funny guys are welcome but keep the humor friendly please!

    this section is for discussion about the forums.

    this section is for discussion about Minecraft.


    ya know i never seem to find myself scrolling that far down on the topic list, never even seen that one. but thank you for most certainly proving that you don't need to hastily resort to reporting someone but bringing fourth friendly suggestions. i will repost this thread how it appears in the discussion section, and i also now know for future reference of a forum discussion section! i will also leave a bold note in the discription that i have moved discussion to the proper section.

    thanks,

    Usually when I see people get reported for a thread, it is usually always Spam or Troll/Flame-bait.
    Recently in the suggestions forum there was a suggestion asking to make the player Bi... Obviously this choice has NOTHING to deal with minecraft, and not to mention that it was all spelled terribly on consisted of no more than 5 "words"... It's obvious that the thread should have been reported!

    In other cases, it's just a simple misplaced thread report. Only a couple hour ago, I reported a thread asking for Vertical Half-Tiles for being in the discussion forum. Of course, I commented first telling them that it's in the wrong thread, but for this... it really doesn't matter. They have to be reported either way so they can be moved...

    So this is kind of a silly thing to discuss. If you're a genuine user, you won't be reporting people because it's funny.

    EDIT: Also I agree. Threads discussing goings-on in the forums should be held in the Discussion Forum. Discussion about Minecraft or the Development of Minecraft should be held in the Beta-Survival Mode section.


    well it was also just brought to my attention that it is possible for a player to be banned for the 3 days due to being reported no matter the reason. now i dont have any sources to prove this fact and i do not want to call this person a liar by any means so assuming hes correct a simple report due to improper placement of thread however appropriate it may be could lead to a generally rule obeying user becoming temporarily banned. it is possible to edit your forum post in its entirety to something else completely, therefor possible for any user to make note of a mistake in incorrect forum section or possibly even rephrasing it to where it fits (not always applicable but possible). i suppose i just seem to be running into more rude remarks on forum posts that almost seemingly are in the right section however may include something that does not apply. I try to keep my discriptions for topic discussion short so i apologize ive been partially rambling on here.

    thanks,

    This is in the wrong section. This section is for talking about minecraft.


    as stated in the board index the discussion section of the forum states anything minecraft or the developement of minecraft may be discussed here. i would say its general belief that the forums are apart of minecraft and that the discussion section of the forums would be the best suiting to have a thread about an issue evolved around the forums would it not?

    thanks,
    Shiv


    This post doesnt relate to minecraft or the development of minecraft.


    the forums are apart of minecraft are they not? but instead of broad open ended remarks perhaps you could follow up with the point i was trying to make with the posting of this discussion and poll to kindly suggest a better suited section where this would be best suited. through my eyes discussing the forums is best suited in the discussion section.

    thanks,

    posted a message on Lookin to put togeather a build group
    whats up, some of you may have seen one of my videos showing some of the star wars stuff that i have built over the past couple months, however im lookin to join up with someone or possibly 2 other people and start doin some other stuff as well

    most likely the server will be a classic server because i don't have the time to fiddle with modding a survival out to fit the needs of a large scale building group.

    im lookin mainly to build themed stuff at first and eventually if a good idea is brought fourth to start doin some original stuff. im a pretty big science fiction/fantasy nerd so chances are that will be the genre of any suggestions i make of things to build as im sure many of you have guessed by how much star wars stuff i have built already.

    my youtube channel is in my sig so if your skeptical of my abilities just check that out and feel free to either comment on here or just go ahead and send me a message.

    thanks for your interest

    posted a message on Looking to put togeather build group
    looking for a build partner/s. i enjoy doing themed builds and some of you that may have seen some of my youtube videos which mostly revolve around star wars builds i have done such as the millennium falcon as well as a copy of the town of mos eisley and a few other things i have made.

    lookin for one possibly 2 others to take on projects with. not really looking for anyone looking to put hours each day into something but some considerable work.

    im not really looking to take on a second job of modding out a survival server to suit the needs of a build project unless someone who is interested already has this accomplished so chances are the server will be classic.

    more than likely i will want to do a couple theme builds to get started then possibly move onto original stuff. i dont do sprites/pixel art, i respect everyone who does but it just bores me to do. im a huge science fiction and sci-fi fantasy fan so thats definately a genre ill be lookin into to build, but im willing to get into the minecraft cliche of castles and things of the sort as long as they are unique enough.

    thanks for your interest
