    I would like to see a REDSTONE rank as not all helpers/mods are able to help with redstone builds.

    Not to call out the mods/helpers. It’s no big deal- they are unbelievably helpful in other areas. I tip my hat to you guys.

    However when troubleshooting redstone builds circuits alone it can get frustrating. For those builders sake it would be nice if there were people who wanted to align themselves with helping redstone builders.

    For what it’s worth I knew NOTHING about redstone six months ago so I get it. Before you know the basics is quite confusing... also for what it’s worth regular building is NOT my strength.

    I can’t build worth s#%t but I do like playing with redstone, building farms, contraptions, etc.

    Thoughts ? Positive or negative ? Can anyone think of any reasoning as to why this shouldn’t be done ?

    [ FYI: I fully recognize it’s Applebranch’s server and NOT mine for what it’s worth :) ]


    PS. I just realized that it’s possible this suggestion has been posted before. If so I apologize ! -Bath

    Or instead of adding a whole new rank you could just ask in game or on discord... Many people would be very willing to help you since the community is decent.
    We have enough ranks already and this is just unnecessary in my opinion.

    Mods and helpers are more community leaders most aren't even really builders either and as Aztec said just ask in discord or watch some youtubes.

    Mods and Helpers are here to help and assist players in trouble or in need, but we dont necessarily have to be good at redstone. AC has a big player base, and with that comes many players who are happy to help and assist even if they aren't AC staff. I'm sure if you asked around on the discord or in-game for help on redstone builds they would be more than happy to tp to you. A redstone rank in my opinion is unnecessary and a waste, especially considering that AC has a 'Builder/Architect' rank.

    People have brought the idea to applebranch in the past, they suggested a "redstoner" rank prefix or similar, possible winnable thru a comp or something, but apple categorically said No.

    At the end of the day, its down to apple, there would be pros and cons to having it but I do not think she is in favour of the idea

    Awww, but I wanted to be a "Redstoner"! :p But yeah, what Dola said kinda, the AC community is fairly legit and just asking in here, discord, or chat will certainly get you the help you need. I myself love redstone as well. :D Making doors and auto farms is the best!

    Some popular Redstone players seem to get stumbled at the simplest compact design. The only good Redstone artists I know personally are Kocraft13 and ThaCrash

    Maybe just make a redstoner community or list to bring them together or allow people to know who they can go to for help. The other thing about a redstoner rank is while they may want to help sometimes if they're just regular players or even mods it can become quite a burden to be constantly assisting with redstone or having to deal with people constantly pestering them it might be nice for them to just appear and be known when they choose.

    This cant always be the case sadly. While I do use some youtube designs I've personally designed some of my own circuits from scratch and some people like to do the same in that regard. Now In regard to this thread I think a redstone prefix in game isnt terribly realistic as too many tags make for an ugly chat/online players experience. However I could definitely see something like this being doable in discord with a bot or a generally assingable rank for such a thing doing so would add exposure to the discord (if new players need help with redstone they can ask and get the discord and be able to contact someone with said tag) and add a level of interaction between players. But ultimately that's a deal for the higher ups
