Total Miner Discord
« on: December 27, 2016, 05:04:45 PM »






Total Miner Now has a Discord Server and we are recognized by Discord as an "Official Partner", 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!



===================================================


Congrats everyone!

Our server now has over 100,000 messages sent, and that is excluding bot replies, wow  :-X

On top of that we were just recently recognized by Discord as an "Official Partner" So they have

  • Upgraded our servers
  • Given us a new vanity link:  https://discord.gg/totalminer
  • Let us have a custom invite splash page
  • And I think we get early access to new update features which they are testing




I also want to extend thanks to all our staff, thanks a bunch guys for making this work!

Contest League



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

PVP
Parkour
Building
Particles
Survival

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,

Sounds great! If I have a day off during a contest, I'll join. Id also like to make a contest map for one of them as well.

sweet, would absolutely love some help on a map for a contest,

And if sundays are a bad day for you, we can perhaps find some other time of day, or perhaps even saturdays.
The time I choose defiantly is flexible, but was one I thought most people would have off.

Oh and As some added incentive to try and kick-start our little group, I'll be doing random give aways in our discord chat.
Some might be better than others, it depends on what I have to give out. I'll probably either post random codes in the chat and the first player who enters them gets them, or do some by random selection as well.

Sorry if I missed it but what types of challenges will there be besides pvp or parkour? Perhaps building challenges either build offs or building the description  given and top 5 are chosen? Particle building challenges?

I've not played total miner for a couple of months now,  simply because I've been busy and would rather wait until the PC release.
However, I am willing to step back and give this contest thing a go! - I'll view it as an insight to PC.

When is the first contest scheduled to be held?

I'll sign up to the groups later.
Thanks, looking forward to it.
