Site News and Information / Member tagging
« on: January 03, 2018, 01:14:59 AM »
You now have the ability to tag other users in your posts. Works just as you'd expect it to. Tag somebody and they get a notification that they were tagged in X topic. To tag somebody just @name them. Once you post the first few letters you should get a box popping up with member suggestions, like so



If you have new mentions, it will be displayed like this



The number of new mentions you have will be displayed on the main bar. Clicking it from the dropdown will give you a list.



Old mentions should fall off this list after 7 days. If for some strange reason you want an email to be sent to you whenever you get a new mention, you can enable it from there.

And if you're using the Tapatalk app, you'll receive push notifications when you've been tagged.

Don't abuse this. Nobody likes being randomly tagged just for laughs.

Contests / New Years Giveaway
« on: December 31, 2017, 02:08:01 PM »
For the new year we'll be giving out another big wad of games. 28 games in total. This will work like the prior big wad giveaways. For example, if there's 20 entries, everybody will get one game, and then the remaining 8 games will be given out through a random drawing. If there's 50 entries, 28 of those entries will win, and so on.

Onto the games, I'm not going to list them all, but here's some highlights.


This is a fantastic game, and it is seriously way better than any game about driving a crappy Russian truck around in the mud has any right to be.









No need to pick a number, just post something that says you want to enter.

The winners will be chosen on 1/7/2018



Only accounts made before 12/31/2017 with 100+ posts are eligible.

Site News and Information / Downloads section now open
« on: December 11, 2017, 09:25:24 PM »
I've opened up the downloads section, so that people can upload their worlds, or mods they've made.. or whatever else. Note, this section is for TM stuff only. So if you've made a Minecraft mod, that's fantastic, but don't upload it here, because it will get deleted.

Using the upload/download is simple. If you've ever uploaded or downloaded anything before, you pretty much know how it works, so I'll save the boring explanation. I have it limited to 32MB right now so that I can better gauge whatever impact it may have on our hosting.

There's 3 categories right now. Mods, worlds, and miscellaneous, for whatever I haven't anticipated needing its own category. It isn't for uploading screenshots or whatever. Stick with imgur for that. Things like custom textures would go there.

And I shouldn't really need to say this, but I will anyways. Don't upload malware of any sort. It will be deleted, you will be banned, and you will never be welcome back. Ever.

Site News and Information / Total Miner Forums now on tapatalk
« on: December 09, 2017, 04:53:08 PM »
I've installed tapatalk on the forums. It should be easier for everyone to use than the current app or a standard browser. As a bonus it's available on iOS as well as Android. And even Windows phone, which should be useful for all 6 people that have one of those.

What you'll need to do: obviously you'll want to install tapatalk. Pick your poison with the links below.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.quoord.tapatalkpro.activity
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tapatalk-200-000-forums/id307880732?mt=8
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/tapatalk-classic/9wzdncrfhwnl

When you first run it, you'll see a search bar at the top. type in Total Miner, and you'll get something that looks like this.



Hit follow so that you don't have to constantly be searching for the same thing. Then you just click the link to get here, log in and you'll be able to do most everything that you can do on the website version. It'll looks something like this, which is basically the equivalent of hitting the recent posts.



There are some ads here and there, but they seem pretty unobtrusive. I'll have a look at the stats in a month or two and see if there's enough people using it to justify paying for the ad free upgrade.

General Discussion / The Holiday Giveaway
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:14:55 AM »
Just a quick question as to what everyone would prefer for this years giveaway. A giveaway with one really good prize, or a giveaway with a ton of smaller prizes so that everyone will get something, similar to this one http://totalminerforums.net/index.php?topic=18740.0

Gaming / Free games
« on: August 22, 2017, 09:16:41 PM »
Since I come across free games a lot and probably very few people know about them being free, I figure I'll just post them here as I come across them.

This won't include "free" games ala the monthly Playstation Plus or Games with Gold titles or pirated games (and don't even think about posting links to those.) Also won't include mobile games, because I don't care about mobile games. Only actual free ones.

So to start off:

Shadow Warrior is free on Steam. This seems like a 1 day only thing, so go grab it like now or it'll be too late.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/233130/Shadow_Warrior/

And over on Origin you can grab Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault. I don't know how long this lasts. EA seems to have no rhyme or reason as to when they change it.

https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/free-games/on-the-house

And Club Ubisoft has Rayman Origins free for the remainder of August

Contests / 4 year Anniversary Giveaway
« on: April 04, 2017, 04:20:45 PM »
So yesterday was exactly 4 years since the day I first created the forums. So to celebrate, we'll just have to do our biggest giveaway ever. I have 132 games to give away, and Hayden has donated another copy of Oh Sir!, and a copy of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition donated by TheDestinedCrab

Since there's an absurd amount of games here this contest will be different than normal. Everyone who enters is a winner.

What I'll do is once I close the entries I'll divide the entrants by the number of prizes and then I'll give the prizes out at random. So say there's 25 people participating, everyone would get 5 games. If there's 50 participants, everyone would get 2 games, etc. Then what I'll do with the remaining games that can't be divided up evenly, I'll hold a standard drawing to determine who gets them.

The bulk of the games are smaller games across basically every genre. I'm not going to list them all out because that's a lot of work that I don't really feel like doing, so let's just call them surprises. Some of the highlight games though

Insurgency (4 copies)



System Shock 2 (Which you should play just so you get the Bioshock connection)



Dead Effect



Xotic




No need to pick a number, just post something that says you want to enter.

The winners will be chosen on 4/12/2017 (see what I did there, that's the day the forums became public)

MC: Win 10 Edition, requires Windows 10 rather than Steam.

All games besides Oh Sir and MC: Win 10 Edition will be a Steam key. Oh Sir was donated by Hayden, so you'll need to add him to your Steam friends list to receive it as a gift. MC will be a key, but it will need to be redeemed through the Windows store. Make sure to thank Hayden and TheDestinedCrab for the donations.
