Minecraft / Re: Show and Tell!
An obsidian dome in your giant base made of glass domes ;o For the Nether!...Maybe?
Minecraft / Re: Trading Post?
Yep. I don't mind maintaining and keeping tabs on a sticky thread. However, if there's enough interest, we could easily create a separate Trade Board which would allow players to create their own individual threads. :)
Introductions / Re: Introduction
Approved. Dudel can show you where to post your Minecraft username for whitelisting. (On my phone atm so linking is annoying.)
Off Topic / Re: Discord?
Yes, that can easily be done. There could be a separate text and voice channel for World Unbent/Minecraft only.

I think this might be a better way to explain why I think Discord is so nifty (and I'm sure others who use it will agree) so I'll just compare/contrast it with some other programs:

  • Has voice chat if the game has that feature
  • Does not have video chat
  • Has a limited chat history
    • Shows latest messages and a small amount of history. If too much time passes, there is no history.
  • Does not allow for creation of a group chat
    • However, you can create a group "page" which is similar to a discussion board
    • Downside: No notifications. So posts typically go unseen.
Skype/Facebook Messenger/Hangouts (Google-chat):
  • Has voice chat
    • Voice chat does not allow for voice-activation or push-to-talk options
  • Has video chat
  • Has a full chat history
  • Allows for creation of a group chat
    • Does not allow for further customization of the group chat
  • Has voice chat
    • Has voice-activation and push-to-talk options
  • Does not have video chat
  • Has limited chat history
    • Even more limited than Steam's chat history. Once you leave a channel in Mumble, you no longer see the last messages upon logging back in.
  • Allows for creation of sub-channels
  • Has voice chat
    • Has voice-activation and push-to-talk options
  • Does not have video chat
  • Has a complete chat history
    • Allows for creation of multiple text-based channels
  • Allows for creation of sub-channels
    • Perk: You can type in any of the text-channels without leaving a voice-channel since they are each their own channels.
  • Other Random Things I Like:
    • It shows the name of the game you're playing under your username. You can turn off this setting, but I thought it was a nice touch since then others can easily see and possibly join in on the same game knowing that someone else is already online.
    • Similar to Steam, Skype, FB and Hangouts, you can download Discord on your phone for easy access anywhere.
    • Discord can also be used directly on a browser if you'd prefer not to download the program. I believe Steam, FB and Hangouts also allow this.

Obviously this list may not be entirely accurate as some of these programs I haven't used in quite a while so my knowledge is possibly outdated. (If anyone here is familiar with them and spots a mistake, feel free to point it out.) And I completely understand that people are happily comfortable using what they're familiar with, I'm not pushing to change that. :)

But if you're even slightly curious, you should totally give Discord a try. I think the program is superior to the rest and the best way to see what I mean is to try it yourself. It doesn't even require you to make an account to try.

A handful of us are already on the Discord channel and of course, it's an open invitation to join in when you want. ^^
Off Topic / Re: Discord?
Discord has voice chat function but it also works generally as an IM service. It's also quite versatile since it can be used in browser if you choose not to download the program.

I personally like how easily new channels (both voice or text) can be created. Plus, the chat history and search functions are quite nice. Though this strays from general gaming aspects and more into how I use Discord in general to plan things with friends and I like to keep things organized >.>;
Off Topic / Discord?
Just wondering if any of you happen to use Discord. I know a handful of you do and I was thinking that it might be fun/convenient to have everyone in a server together. This way it may be easier for people to chat and coordinate playing games together (Minecraft or otherwise) when we can easily see who's online and around to poke. :)

If you're interested, let me know and I'll PM you a server link. ^^
Minecraft / Re: Trading Post?
If there's enough interest, we could certainly put up a sticky thread here where people can post swap requests of wanting X for Y.

I know I haven't had a chance to get around to it yet, but I am definitely going to be setting up a central portal area at spawn so people can easily visit other players' bases. Perhaps players who'd like to swap can build a little personalized "mailbox" near the portal at their base for others to drop items off in?

Ex: I post up in thread that I'm looking for redstone dust and will trade iron bars for it. Oniya can drop by my base and put redstone dust in my mailbox (possibly set up the way Oniya suggested so that it's essentially private and locked) with a note (book and quill?) stating that it's from her. I then go to Oniya's base and drop off iron bars in her mailbox in return.
Minecraft / Re: What timezones are you all in?
Also in EST timezone myself with a sporadic schedule. I usually just reach out and give people a poke if I'm online to see if they're also up for hopping on at the same time to build/explore or schedule ahead of time.
