Total Miner Now has a Discord Server, everyone is welcome and encouraged to join.
This is a great way to meet and stay in contact with active total miner players, new total miner players, and people who may not play Total Miner yet but are interested in checking out the game. So whether If you're working on something neat in TM you want to show off, just want some quick advice with a script, or simply want to gossip and find new people to play with, hop in.
You can also take part in Contests / Events / Xbox-Steam Card Giveaways
Simple questions can be answered relatively fast in the discord, although if you have a question requiring a more technical answer we ask that you post it here on the forums. This way a better answer can be provided, and it's logged for all others to see who might also have the same question.
Craig our developer is also a member of this chat.
Anyone who joins before the PC version is released, will be tagged "Pre-PC"
Also using the same roles as the forums/Color Spice, so many of your forum positions / awards / permissions will carry over as roles on the Discord Server
We'd love to rely on the older experienced members to help answer new and prospective members questions.
Keep in mind the Discord is still brand new, so expect it to be a little quiet at times as we're just getting started!
I want to thank everyone who has participated so far, we have had a great start thanks to you all. Already some great original content has been posted.
Today we reached a record high With nearly 5,500 messages sent over the last 24 hours. Each day we are gaining new members from all over, we have had a high number of steam players join, some who used to play total miner 4 to 5 years ago! And a few have never even heard of Total Miner thanks to our advertisements.
Please feel welcome to invite all your friends to join, spreading awareness is a community effort, the more the merrier!
Once pc hits we are expecting the discord to explode with new members. get your pre-pc tag before that happens.
1/6/17 At 12:00AM Midnight We will close week one, and award our current members with the discord equivalent of the forums award "founder" This is a one time deal, So don't miss out!
I also want to extend thanks to all our staff, thanks a bunch guys for making this work!
We are also planning to start a contest league for total miner this year, however we are going to wait and start the league until PC version is out.
Links for everything you need to know on how to sign up for the league can be found on the announcements chat on our discord server
Currently there will be a few stand alone contests, and random give aways
Assorted Types of Contests will be held Bi-weekly,
Prizes will either be Xbox Live gift cards or Steam cards/games at request. Seasonal winners will win a plaque along with an undetermined cash award.
(The current calendar is an example and WILL change, the League will not start until PC Release. And because we don't have an exact date on when that may be all dates will change/be pushed back)
All links to contests sign ups and their times will posted on the calendar dates a week before the actual contests, as well as pinned in the discord announcements, More detailed information and rules are also linked on the calendar. It's pretty much the master source.
Parkour and PVP contests will be run through http://challonge.com/
So make sure to create an account there, It makes sign-ups / check-ins much more organized.
Again all "challonge" links registrations and check ins can be found on the calendar
All rules and points scoring data are subject to change before the start of the league, its semi-wip
As of now contests will consist of
And will continue to grow
The points system will be unique to contest types so contests such as building will offer more seasonal points than those of parkour. I'll do my best to find an appropriate balance
Also your Contest Ideas are wholeheartedly welcome,
