It REALLY seemed like you were part of the problem dude. Kind of hypocritical isn't it?

Nice necro and off-topic as well. It really seems like.. not. Very sincerely. Maybe. And, of course another off-topic from yours truly.

Observe people, if they seem newbies instruct them towards a personal server with mild settings to learn the DST ropes at their own paces maybe, if "they are a waste of resources" and whatnot for you but still wanna be courteous. At least that.. sincerity.

Ah yes. I know your type. You say something rude and controversial, then when someone calls you out you act all high and mighty. Like you are just the best person, and you are right. They are the ones being rude aren't they? Every time I see your name pop up, I roll my eyes. For a good reason also. 

I debated saying something because I know it'll spark unneeded controversy, but IMO something needed to be said. 

Sincerely,

Cactus

There's nothing rude or controversial in my 1-line reply stating the obvious off-topic issue - the very thing you are persisting in doing further dragging me in it, and the fact personal matters should be addressed personally, via PMs. On that subject, you seem to have a personal proverbial bone to pick with me. Nice and dandy. PM as well or here's an even more constructive suggestion for your obsession with this random forumite: mouse-over avatar > ignore user. I know, mind-blowing really. Now you have the forum "sanitized" of my bothering presence for your "safe-space". I won't elaborate further your own trolling shenanigans from your nick with obvious slang connotations or how you imitate Capt.Chaotica, probably in a not-flattering way. Softcore trolling is softcore in the end. Have a good, sincere day! (Likewise: nice stereotyping and "mind read", someone operated well today his X-Men's Cerebro, roll-of-eyes included ;))

I'm going to cover two thing you said., mostly because they are the only thing worth covering.

 

I said, I have been reading your posts. Alot of them. Everytime you post something, you act the same way. That's what I'm saying. I didn't get that from one line.

 

Who's Capt.Chaotica?

Once you have 2 flint from spawn, make a pickaxe and go mine a rock. Taking all the flint makes it really hard for new players to get going.

If showing a new player the ropes, try to ask them for something that only their character can contribute. Asking an inexperienced Wendy to cut a path through a bee biome or build a sisturn, getting bramble armour and compost wrap from Wormwood or showing Willow how to farm nightmare fuel with Bernie will make them feel like they’re helping the team in ways that even the more experienced players around them cannot.

"If you don't want Strangers, set a Password"

Oh god this has been my biggest frustration so far. As someone who enters random public servers looking for playmates, it's such a bummer to get kicked out every single time! I hope Klei would set the default for servers to have passwords.

There is a little thing to this though. People who join DURING WINTER make me so upset. If you see a public server day 21-35 winter DON'T JOIN! Just please. Don't. 

 

Also, it's public during winter because I haven't left the game, plus PS4 has some invite issues.

------------------

Please obey the server rules. Please. If someone asks for something in the rules, and you IGNORE that, don't be surprised if you find yourself back at the home screen.

 

Sincerely,

Cactus

That's exactly what others complained above, if you don't want someone joining, put a password! They can't know someones expectations beforehand.

Btw it's very easy to survive even if you join at middle of Winter! Just stay at Portal if it's Night, and move to find 2 Twigs and 2 Cutgrass, then you are done, just burn a tree time to time to keep warm while also picking food and more Twigs and Cutgrass.

To people helping new people survive:

Don't just spoonfeed them and do everything for them. Setting up base for them gathering food for them, kiting for them and soloing bosses for them, while a kind gesture, teaches them little in the long run.

Instead, try to get them involved. Actively teach them something instead of giving it to them and they'll learn how to do it for next time. As the saying goes, "Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime."

Well, I had a thing below that stating why I DIDN'T have a password. PSN sometimes just WON'T let friends join if it's private, or has a password. It's quite aggravating. 

But overall, I'm completely fine with randoms as long as they don't join at really bad times. Mid summer, mid winter. Especially on Day 30. That is an instant goodbye. Can't risk Deerclops spawning in the middle of god knows where.

(Most people don't know how to tree hop with a torch during winter)

So here are my original tips that do wonders:

Help Collecting Stuff:

As you play more, you realize there are tons of chores in the game; Most of it is about collecting what is chopped and brought down.
Whenever you see someone chopping a Tree, mining a Boulder or digging Graves, follow closely and pick whatever is dropped. (Don't give any of it to them since it will distract them and cause annoyance.)

The Backpack Protection:

Backpacks are one of the most important items, which are usually full of resources. When a player drops them, don't let it stay there in the middle of jungle or pick it up to protect it. (You can later drop it near the Campfire for them.)

Help Designing the Base:

  • Whenever a player is going through them, open and close the exact Chest they just used and repeat this until they are done.
  • Place Torches in the Chests.
  • Place Razors, Pitchforks, Shovels and such all over the base in case someone needs those.
  • Drop Rocks and Gold on the ground while camping near Ping King.
  • Make Chests without using Geometric Placement mod.
  • Never Hammer down the Science Machine after the Alchemy Engine is made.

Provide Resources:

  • As Webber, place your Spider Eggs at the Portal, for the newcomers.
  • As Wigfrid, Create 20 Spears and 20 Helmets using the resources at base.
  • As Walter, Drop around 10 slingshots at base and fill chests with projectiles.
  • As Wickerbottom, Create 40 books of each kind and throw them on the ground.
  • As Wormwood, Plant seeds at all empty spots of the base to make use of it.
  • Rush Caves as Wolfgang to bring most needed items, Yellow and Orange gems.

Lead Fellow Survivors:

The moment a newcomer joins the server, tell them to stay at portal and go get them. After that, do not let them collect any resources, and tell them to keep following you, as you are the leader in charge. After you carried them to your base, tell them to go collect what you need from the world, and from now on they are the one that bring newcomers to the base.

Note: Make sure to follow them while they are out there, and if they did collect items, or did anything other than what you asked them to, quickly ask: "Did you find the x stuff?" , and they will keep moving again.

Help Fighting Mobs:

  • Randomly hit the Giants with fist to break their chase, while someone is luring them.
  • Sometimes the Deerclops may spawn at the base, so instead of leaving it, stay there and keep watch.
  • Use Torches and Fire Staffs to attack bosses; The burning effect will speed up the fight.
  • When fighting Dragonfly, stay outside of the made Wall, to not let any Lava minions pass by.

Please keep posts on-topic. Thanks. 

Checks thread cause JoeW posts here thinking Joe was adding his on input to topic- finds out it’s just him asking people to stay on topic, leaves disappointed. :wilson_cry:

But... all jokes aside the best actual tip I can give for being polite to other players is if you join a world that is not your own world: Then be sure you ask the worlds owner before you take things from their chests and stuff.

Taking things without asking first is just bad manners!

One tip I recommend is to not be paranoid and see every single new player as a threat, this goes especially for new players so they don't feel like trash the moment they join a server. Funny story:

Joined a Klei official, it's day 1000+, so these two lads that survived for over 200 days start seeing any newcomer as griefers, a random Maxwell which was quite possibly a new player was just... walking and the moment they left the two lads were like "Omg thank god I was so scared he was so suspicious"

Don't antagonize people the moment they join for no reason.

Btw, I got kicked because I called them paranoid even though they literally checked people's profiles to see if they have enough hours to not be suspicious. Feelsbadman

WHY ON EARTH DO YOU PEOPLE KEEP YOUR SERVERS PUBLIC IF YOU KICK/BAN EVERYONE WHO JOIN??? Just asking...

*takes a deep breath and tries to get calm*

Seriously, I typically load for ages every time I join a server and it really is not nice to get insta-kicked for the fifth time on the same day... Do the people who do that get something out of it? Please show some consideration and politeness... It's ok if you didn't mean to go public, just tell me and I'll go and after that please fix your mistake.

I do that when the player doesnt answer my questions.

Fair enough, if you try to communicate and it's not working. You can kick players from your server if their playstyle isn't what you want, but in that case it'd be good to state it clearly on the server name or description so everyone who decides to join will know what you want.

I meant those situations when the one joining is doing everything they can to be cooperative and nice and still gets insta-kicked right after joining, without a word from the host. It's clear the host doesn't want any random people joining their world, so they should set the server options accordingly....
