Do it! It may not be much, but you can still carry forth the MC community's ingenuity.

Well, I've been roused from my leave. ...And really? I'm not sure what else to say other than what may bring things a bit off-topic.
From the time of my hiatus things haven't improved as much as I'd like them to have. Despite going to therapy and changing things up, my personal problems have not improved anywhere near as much as I'd like them to have. Progress on projects has gone nowhere relatively speaking. Still haven't done anything worthy of note. Sigh. I suppose there's getting good grades in college, but that's not quite what I had in mind. In terms of enjoying the game... I think I might temporarily enjoy it again as I don't know terribly much on the new updates, and my jaw dropped when I decided to join a friend and I looked into a nearby swamp's lake.
In a way, I'm almost glad that the forums are kicking the bucket. I can leave the wretched shackles of my history behind to rot; forgotten in limbo. An opportunity for a fresh start. Yet I don't think I'm going to go for a new start. I think I'm about done with forums in general I only come on because it feels like I have to, as a way to bid farewell to a source of community productivity in mods, resource packs, maps, shared creations, and challenges. A farewell to part of the community of the game that changed my life. I just... I don't have anything productive to add. It takes me eons to put together just a single *expletive here* paragraph of all things. If I can't do any of those, why bother? With that said, I will not miss the obnoxious perfectionism and salt mining on here. That bull can rot in the pit of Nyiragongo. People cannot decide what they want on here, I swear.
I guess that's that. Wish I had something more prepared for the forum's shutdown.Edit: Forum aren't shutting down after all. Hurrah!
Call me crazy but for me it's the opposite.
You're far from the only person to feel that. I feel regret. Lots and lots of regret.
Eh, this topic arises every now and then. I mean, from my point of view I definitely think it lost its identity for a while.
That is in no way masked frustration with Mojang trying to fix things that aren't broken whilst leaving things that are broken to rot whilst erasing the remaining character the game had.
Over time, something is going to change. It is inevitable. Were it to stay the same it may not have reached the popularity it has today. Though I'm still salty over the new textures and 1.4+ sounds. Nobody asked for them to change a legacy. There have been many improvements throughout the years. Lots of quality of life changes, some performance enhancements, and oh yeah: FIXED BOATS AND ACTUAL AQUATIC CONTENT. TOOK YOU LONG ENOUGH MOJANG. Now get on Minecarts and reverting 1.7 biome and cave gen k thx.
Out of genuine curiosity, as it varies from individual to individual, what are these sort of changes of which you speak? [Forget the 1.9 combat changes, those are almost universally detested in some form lol]
Citric sold the forum to years ago but stayed on as the lead admin/community manager, he was part of the discussion to close the forum (as far as i know), but there was no background deals like people think, no one paid to have the forum closed or anything like that, (microsoft did not get the forum closed, yes many have suggested it), the forum is just flat out costing more money to run than it brings in.
Oookay then. I thought the Microsoft thing was largely dropped by now. I guess dead horses never decay (though I can sorta see MS sticking a rare hand in something every now and then).
This is obvious. The Minecraft wiki is one of the highest quality wikis out there, so I can see why Fandom/Wikia wanted to pick it and Curse's other resources up. Part of me hopes it rubs off in some form or another on the Wikia wikis because those things are abominations. Hopefully they change formatting and start enforcing some sort of standards but I don't see that happening.
SnapshotMC might be a new home for the suggestion community, but frankly I don't see it being home for any other part of the community. I see most moving off to Planet MC (and perhaps Reddit), with the mods largely congregating around CurseForge forums.
That brings me into something else. I'm wondering if the whole shutting down of the forums is a decision on Fandom's part as opposed to say, Citric's. I learned that back in December, Fandom, the people behind Wikia, acquired Curse from Twitch/Amazon (BE GONE BEZOS). Now, ask just about anyone about Curse and chances are you're going to hear about Minecraft by far the majority of the time in comparison to what else it offers. I'm left to wonder if they're shutting down the forums in favor of only having the wiki(s) for $ purposes. ...Which seems to be pretty asinine given that Curse is quite known for the MCF. To just come along to buy it and shut it down... Kinda nasty, putting it lightly there. But, cheekily, CurseForge is still owned by Twitch/Amazon, and it appears that recently the CurseForge forum was expanded in a suspiciously similar manner to the structure of the current forums here. So that's something.
If I go back to being inactive again right before shutdown, I hope I'll see y'all around sometime, somewhere in the future.
In my hiatus I forgot about this. Glad to see that it's still being worked on. ...And since I've started playing TF2 I'll never see the name "Spyro" the same ever again. That said I hope things continue well on PMC. Hopefully I'll see you around sometime if or when I come crawling back out from dormancy.
Fantastic. Will there be a PMC post as well for an alternative to having Discord open?Click HereIt will be updated there so that I can keep updating the guide after the Minecraft Forums becomes archived. The benefit of updating it there would be that you will have more people to help you with question on things that are not covered in the guide. I will have the link to the new (updated) guide in one of the Discord channels for you to constantly go back to, while there will still be a link back to this guide.
Looking back at your old posts and thinking "wow, what was I thinking?" is a positive experience because it shows how much you have grown as a person during your time on the forum, and personal growth is very important. Looking back on my oldest posts here brings a lot of shame, but I'm grateful for how much I've been able to grow over the last decade. If you consider how your posts were back then, and how they are now, then you can imagine the next 5, 10 or 15 years of growth too, and even if you don't feel great right now, and even if you can't imagine feeling great any time soon, there's evidence right in front of you that growth is possible.
You've certainly been a positive contributor to the forum, and although I can't speak on behalf of every member here I can say that the forum appreciates your contributions here, as do I :-) If you consider how many people 50,000 is (it's enough to fill the Liverpool FC Stadium) then based on one of your contributions alone you've positively impacted more people here than most people will ever have a chance to.
Anyway, good luck with everything, we all eventually outgrow our interests and have to make the right decisions for our wellbeing. I haven't played Minecraft in a long time. I hope that when you do feel like visiting you know that you're providing value to others by being here. Thank you for your contributions :-)
This isn't an official leaving, but I've been having a difficult time trying to stay on here for a good while now. At this point I'm kind of ashamed that with all this time I just don't feel like I've contributed much. It's often feels more like a chore to come on here sometimes, but I do it because the servers whose forums I'd use to cruise on are dead at this point, and if I want to talk to anyone about anything MC-related, this is the only place I can really do so. Even then, I'm considering moving away from the forums for a little while to shut out extra exposure to Minecraft. I just don't enjoy the game anymore, and it makes me even more upset knowing that. I've been battling depression for a year and a half now and I don't think it's making my experience, or anyone else's on here any better, and psychotic mood swings are not helping. I don't even want to think of the posts I made when I first started. Good gosh they were bad.
To help with the problem of island heights, what if we had whirlwinds that'd carry you upwards? If you want a better visual, think the ones from the original Spyro trilogy. Plus, have we introduced a way apart from Frores to traverse more difficult areas in the dimension? Falling 30 blocks into damaging liquid nitrogen is a bit harsh for a non-progression-related dimension.
I forget if we're still devising ways to enter the Frist. I have a suggestion to offer: Finding portals in the Nether that lead to this dimension, then with materials from the Frist to be able to make portals near their homes in the overworld.
Their spawning is still tied to insomnia, however the latest snapshot changed the phantoms so that they despawn in the daytime:
Why is it people are getting their jimmies rustled over the bloody movie? It's 3 years away and probably not worth watching, like all the other video game movies.
OT: Very clever map. I simply don't have the perseverance for much command block stuff.
Most certainly either a beetle or dragonfly. Always liked them and I can see them fitting into the game.
