So, lets shift focus a bit. We have a Discord now, so we have a place to organise playing games with each other as well as shitpost.
https://discord.gg/QGCyRdV This is permanent invite link, so you can come and go as you please with no hassle.
|>>|| No. 22565
From what I can tell from /g/, it's basically just IRC but the mods clearly have their heads buried in the sand and are being wilfully blind to the insidious creep of Big Discord.
|>>|| No. 22566
Pretty much. It collates your games across all the launchers and lets you launch them from there, as well as letting you voice chat with each other in game and shitpost outwith it.
|>>|| No. 22567
Don't we have a steam group already?
Anyway I'm joining but I'll be invisible

Why mr.Britfa.gs with the bot that just spams Gifs and the bot that just says quack, you are truely spoiling us!
|>>|| No. 22570
U wot? You have to trigger the bot with a command yourself, it just deletes the trigger command (e.g. !imgur [Keyword] or !youtube [Keyword]); it's a search engine. Duckhunt spawns 2 ducks a day, you histrionic mentalist.

Just because someone called you this once doesn't mean it is an insult to reuse against others.

Whatever lad, don't use the Discord, we don't want your miserable attitude on it anyway.
|>>|| No. 22576
Bravo lads you certainly did an excellent job on selling me of the idea of the Discord group with the quality of this thread.
What do you do for an encore? shit your pants?
|>>|| No. 22577
It was inevitably going to be a shitshow from start to finish, considering the mods apparently don't know the difference between lets and let's .
|>>|| No. 22578
You may as well just pack up the board and fuck off.
|>>|| No. 22582
I don’t think the people getting angry about this have even bothered to look. There are 8 lads on it already and this thread is just about the most cancerous thing about the experience so far.
Sort yourself out, you miserable cunts.
|>>|| No. 22583
There's a contingent (read: probably one person) that's convinced that the IRC or anything relating to it was a hive of drama and plotting against the good users of the imageboard. This continued even whilst the IRC consisted of about five people that didn't speak.
|>>|| No. 22584
God that takes me back.
I remember people posting angrily about the IRC as if it was 'us vs them', or the 'clique', despite it being an entirely open channel, obviously.
I lurked in there for a while but I don't think I counted as being in the clique. I've still never met any of you weirdos.
|>>|| No. 22586
It would be nice to believe that but I've been on here when IRC drama has spilled on to the boards. That isn't to say I think it is a constant gossip fest but I've watched it happen. The party line seems to be to delete as soon as it appears (which is probably for the best) I can't remember when exactly was the last time I saw some but I think it might have been randomly at 4am on a weekday in the last year.
There is definitely a bias in the only time irc is mentioned it is for drama purposes.
|>>|| No. 22587
Unless there's a secret meeting time or another server I'm fairly certain the IRC channel is dead and has been for a few years.
|>>|| No. 22588
The last time IRC had any drama was a lad called Gollum who turned out to be a paedo and that wasn't even mentioned here. That was about 4 years ago now.
There hs never been an IRC clique, just people (person?) who wanted to create the impression that there was.
Server is doing well so far regardless, in the double digits now, so lets just say if IRC ever was insular and unwelcoming this wont be.

>There hs never been an IRC clique, just people (person?) who wanted to create the impression that there was.
The only time I recall IRC getting brought up on here was people moaning that the 'clique' were responsible for suggesting a lot of the boards that never get posted used, but I don't pay much attention. I think the only new board we'd feasibly ever need would be if we allowed webms here.

What if no one uses the Discord itself, but this thread serves as a proxy for any inquiries one might have that seem approppriate for a Discord server?
|>>|| No. 22602
Why did you take my obviously convoluted and silly idea seriously? And why are you saging a stickied thread, that's surely a red flag for any post you're making?
|>>|| No. 22603
For what? Is this another example of the alt-right infiltrating the site? ITZ!
|>>|| No. 22605
The more pertinent question is: Why sage any thread, when it bumps it on /*/ regardless?
|>>|| No. 22608
>And why are you saging a stickied thread, that's surely a red flag for any post you're making?
The use of sage here goes well beyond that, particularly with the advent of /*/, which negates its original function entirely, and is deeply rooted in the britfa.gs traditions of both being a grumpy old cunt and sometimes not believing your own post to be worthy of attention. A lot of people just use it while complaining.
That's the reason the box often says things like 'spoilt ballot' or 'moan'
|>>|| No. 22609
I think it's clear that the IRC clique have now infested this thread to push the idea that the idea of an IRC clique is a conspiracy theory.
|>>|| No. 22611
It's pretty obvious that a Discord clique has begun to form and they've decided they should spread disinformation to discredit any alternative from of real-time communication.
|>>|| No. 22612
And it's ran by the mods. So if you try and say anything you get banned.

Why do you have a chip on your shoulder about posts on a different board, on a different topic, from possibly more than a month ago?

I'm feeling like I want to set up a minecraft server again, would anyone here still bother with it? I'd probably like to faff around with Tekkit or Sky Factory or similar but don't really know what's 'good'
|>>|| No. 22729
I do have Minecraft one windows store, once I'm out from under revision on Wednesday I'd be willing to give it a go.
|>>|| No. 22740
Looks like it's the same for me, 7 years ago. Wasn't it like yesterday?
Whining thoroughly checked.
|>>|| No. 22741
This inspired me to see what my server looked like 7 years ago. I have never played regularly; rather sporadically throughout that time but it's still cool to see the evolution.
|>>|| No. 22773
Aww, the britfags server, one of the few times I played multiplayer for an extended amount of time. Now I'm wishing I had the spare time to waste hours on Minecraft.
Also coincidental that just when I revisit britfags.gs to see if there's a current server, I'm greeted by an image of the statue I made of myself. Though I don't remember putting a big knob on it.
|>>|| No. 22821
Someone even managed to make a proper cheeky shot of it, with those clouds positioned just fine, intentional or not.
|>>|| No. 22822
Wait, is that fucking Minecraft? I imagined some awesome city building game where you could zoom into the lives of inhabitants, influence their environment and watch the carnage ensue. Like Dwarf Fortress but finished.
|>>|| No. 22824
It's just a map view of an old server. All pretty things and no actual life save for the players.
|>>|| No. 22825
Was this the one with the BBC (obnoxious obsidian tower at spawn) in it? That was the one I ran and I do miss it. I don't have the time now but I suppose if you're all fine with the owner cheating a bit I'll start it up again.
It's entirely possible I still have the world, but don't hold your breath.

Alright let's see how this goes -
Java Minecraft vanilla server. Go nuts.
|>>|| No. 22851
Can't remember my login credentials and the password reset thing isn't coming through to any of the obvious email addresses.
|>>|| No. 22852
That depends, if everyone is going to play nice, or if people are going to act like grade A cunts and just pour lava on everything.
|>>|| No. 22853
If anyone griefs I'll just permaban them from here as well as the game.
The previous servers we've had didn't really have trouble anyway.
It took me a while to work out when this happened to me but it had something to do with converting my minecraft account to a mojang account, or summat.
|>>|| No. 22855
If you have an old enough account, it'll be a username you need to log in with, rather than an email. That was my issue trying to get back into it a few years back. But obviously if you can't find anything by searching your emails then I'm not sure what else to do, other than buy the game again, but I can't imagine anyone actually buying Minecraft in 2019.

Good answer, just to check will you be backing up the server at all and if how regularly? When a dick head strikes, permbanning might stop the problem contiuning, but won't repair the damage, I'm a bit on edge as a friends private server somehow got griefed and they ruined everything.
|>>|| No. 22857
It'll be backed up at least twice daily and at most hourly, depending on how many people actually end up using it. I remember running a great 'undo' plugin back in the day that would basically reverse any griefer damage, though I suppose land claiming or faction stuff is easier/better if we really want to go that route.
Either way I'd not worry. I don't remember any proper griefing on the old server, and that was back in the dark, wild days of this site when we still allowed foreigners and that.
I'm also open to running a heavily modded server, Sky Factory always looked fun to me but open to suggestions. Maybe I'm being too optimistic about getting it as big as the last one was, we'll see. Feel free to invite all your weird friends, I left the 'fag' out of the address for that reason.
|>>|| No. 22858
It's saying I have a migrated account and to log in with my email address. The only reference to mojang I can find in my emails is a paypal receipt from 2015.
|>>|| No. 22859
Ok so it came up with a prompt indicating I used someone else's email to log in and my username wasn't one I remembered. And now I'm logged in... somehow.
|>>|| No. 22861
I'm sure it's sending recovery prompts somewhere, I don't keep track of how many email accounts I've used.
|>>|| No. 22862
Happened to me. I couldn't recover it and ended up having to buy it all over again last year. Absolute shitters.
Having a blast on the new server though.

Bumping to star in the unlikely case there's anyone left that fancies
idling an empty Discord joining.

Part of me wants to but every other part of me is saying it'll just be a shitshow.
|>>|| No. 23227
Well it's only been five days since I took you up on your offer, but I have to say, absolutely sound group of lads. And since it's Discord apparently you can all sit in a voice channel with muted mics and listen to tunes played by a bot. Modern technology, eh?
