Signs to inform ingame

A letter is something else^^ A sign should show what it has to show without a second window.
For a letter, a book etc. on the other hand it might be appropriate to have a second window because of the sheer size of information.

okay, now we are talking same language :wink:

I still vote for small signs with a limited amount of letters and then a bulletin board where people can hang lenghty notes, quests and ads


Must have been some other james.


I guess i found your long lost twin then xD

also i keep confusing @ben with @james. on the old forums Ben literally had 5 replies and james were doing the leaks and now its the other way around.

I forgot my password, so I’m using @james’ account. So I’m @ben, but I look like @james. @james is using @ben’ account. So @ben is @james, and @james is @ben. Unless they’re on mobile, then @james is @james and @ben is @ben. No clue what is happening on Steam…




I think, maybe a wolf would not considered as evil if it had a different name. Like, maybe woolves - a wool’f in sheep clothings. The wool elves so to say. Similar to the wood elves, which king was Wooldelve. In the forgotten realm of Dononomo.

The hell are you talking about?

Realm on the sunken continent of Watahal.
Heard there is a map hidden in a temple of the shape of a pyramid.
No one ever found. :fearful:

What are the key differences between Noticeboard and Signs (just so I don’t miss anything)


Bulletin board / Notice Board

Notice boards would be something people could hang up requests, quests and otherwise. Personally i requested it for shop purposes, you have the buying and selling plinths which solves most of the need for it, but it would still be nice if the crafter could hang up rules, information and prices. forexample, and people could come in the door and add a note to the bulletin board where they can request a certain crafted item and then a time they will come back to get it.

I would say on a notice board you can place notes, letters and posters (for example a wanted poster) which might have too much information on them so you need to open them in a seperate reading window.

On the other hand a sign should be readable without a second window. It should sign something. (yea captain obvious and stuff^^)

The tradeoff would be that a sign can’t display/“store” as much information per block. But it’s readable without interaction.

At least that would be my differentiation.

Yeah pretty much.

So a bulletin board is basically:

  • A dedicated block type which users can place signs on outside of usual Beacon permissions
  • Only the user that places a sign can edit content.
  • Beacon owner can remove posts
  • Beacon owner could set an optional time limit on posts

More like

  • A prop which can be interacted with to open a new window
  • In the new window you can see all the titles of the notes written there
  • Click on a title to open a small note which have a word limit of 300 ish written with however has access
  • “Create new note” if you have the option

The beacon owner has options like

  • Who can write notes (could use tokens for permissions) Ex. Me / x people / All people
  • How many notes can a single person who isnt me write in x amount of times (to prevent spamming

This would atleast for me be the very basic of it, you could also make it more fancy such as having different fonts, sizes and have different categories (WTC, WTS, WTB, LFG,). It would allow for people to post events and stuff too if you put it in the middle of a city.

You could also advertise guild recruitment requirements on it… unless that will be handled elsewhere.

Yeah that too. basically a place to put anything you want people to see.

I think that bulletin boards are a neat idea but I really don´t see any need for them.
Signs should be sufficient to give other players information (B< has a much higher default texture than Minecraft so I think that the B< signs will support much more characters per sign than their Minecraft counterpart).
For the communication between players that are not online at the same time I´d prefer the MMORPG standard mail system.
And to be honest: I think that 99% of the public bulletin boards in crowded places would be spammed with notes from goldseller or childish troll posts.
