    posted a message on Clarification of bumping rules in the Servers section

    Greeting server owners and players!


    Bumping has always been against the rules in the PC Servers forum however we have received feedback that it is not clear what is and what isn't bumping. Please review the following clarification of the rules, which will come into action on February 11th.


    No bumping is permitted in the Servers forum.

    Server administrators are only permitted to reply to their thread when they are sharing major news, responding to an application, or engaging in conversation about the server with a player.

    Major news is defined as an infrequent change that affects all players and gameplay, for example the server is coming online after 24+ hours offline, or the server type is changing (e.g: from survival to creative). Frequent changes like events, plugins and milestones do not qualify as major news and must be edited into the opening post of the thread instead.

    Players may share their thoughts on why they like a server in the form of a review, and server administrators may encourage their players to post a review in the server's thread, however players must not be rewarded for these reviews -- a reward includes but is not limited to in-game currency, ranks and items. Players must not leave multiple reviews unless significant changes has occurred on the server which make the original review no longer applicable.

    posted a message on I accidentally made a second minecraft forum account.

    We don't mind having multiple accounts, however we do not permit them when it's used maliciously.


    Examples including evading bans on one account and falsely misrepresenting your content with another account (i.e posting on the threads made by one account with the other to make it seem like others agree)

    posted a message on Question about reports.

    Reports just are ways for members to flag content for review by moderators. Moderators can and do just occasionally read things and moderate if they find them. We are not solely driven by reports.


    Some sections are not as frequently looked at compared to others, so it's certainly possible we miss stuff.

    posted a message on looking for a cheap altshop

    Only buy it from minecraft.net.


    Any other site is a scam.

    posted a message on Is this a genuine Forge Update?

    No.


    Only https://files.minecraftforge.net is genuine. Assume any other links are fake (and that site is known to steal content and intentionally do malicious things).

    posted a message on Why doesn't the rules page mention necroposting?

    The forum rules aren't exhaustive, some rules (like necroposting) are communicated to members via informal warnings, this is so that we have a record that they have been informed about the rule. Listing every rule would still have rules that are not listed (because there is no way we can spell out all the cases).


    Generally, if the thread has been inactive for a month, then it's probably best to leave it, since the value of the thread is probably gone. There is no concrete value, since it varies for each thread.

    posted a message on Change "Edit Thread" Button to "Edit Title"

    There is meaning behind it, because we actually use that "Edit Thread" to edit other thread properties, such as if it's pinned or an announcement, or if it's locked or deleted.


    It's not the best name for the tab for members, but it is actually accurate if you are a mod or admin.

    posted a message on Clicking on "thread" brings up newest to oldest, not oldest to newest?

    Sorry, I was under the impression you did not know.


    You meant you wanted this to instead default to working the other way.
