Ground Rules:
CHECK FIRE! Once on the server, hold your fire until specifically instructed to do so. This is very important so that your instructor can address everyone without background noise of weapons fire or explosions.
Listen to your instructor and follow their directions. It is important that everyone listen to the instructor and be ready to follow instructions so that the material in the module can be covered in a timely manner. The more the instructor has to be off-topic the longer the module will take to complete.
Minimize Com Chatter. Questions are greatly encouraged as part of the learning process, but many people may have questions at once. If you have a question or comment, simply type a request such as "question" or "comment" in the in-game chat and your instructor will call on you and let you have the com when they are able.

How Spots Are Assigned:
The first priority will be given to Supporting Members above non-Supporting Members. After that, People who have attended a TGU Basic Infantry course over those who have not. People who haven't attend a Basic Infantry course are allowed to sign up but will not be awared a badge until they passed or are writen off by a instructor.

A reserve list will be made up when all the playing spots are filled. Supporting members, once again, have priority. When a player with a spot cancels, they will be replaced by the first person on the reserve list.

How to Sign Up
IMPORTANT!
Players who no-show without notice for a session will be precluded from participating in the following session for the game where they were absent. Don't let your team mates down! Only sign up if you can make it. Because class spaces are limited, please don't take a spot unless you're confident you can play.

To sign up, please simply reply with the following two items of information:
1) In house squad (unaffiliated if none)
2) Your in-game name.

Please reply to this message with the above information if you wish to sign up.
Players will be signed up on a first-come first-served basis.
Supporting Members get precendence in the order they sign up, then Non-Supporting Members afterwards. Your SM status at the time of signup determines which list you will be on. Once you post, you cannot become a SM later to work your way up the list.
You can pull out, but if you reconfirm, you will find yourself at the bottom of the roster.
You may not hand over your spot to another specific player. Your spot will be given to the next available player.

Excited!

Ps: let's nip the time zone misunderstandings in the bud this time... :)
GMT is FOUR hours ahead of eastern SUMMER time, which if what it currently is in, say, new york. GMT is not affected by daylight savings time!

Liquid, I apologize, but you do not meet the prerequisites for the course. I should be hosting another Indirect Fire Basic (AKA Artillery Basic) sometime in the near future.

I'm going to confirm with a person in Zulu/GMT timezones to make sure that the times are completely understood.

The misunderstanding is that no one is in gmt! People in england right now, for example, are "in" bst, which is one hour ahead of gmt.

Either way, the class will be held at 1200 EST and UK players are +5 hours ahead of EST. I'm not going to deal with timezone conversions. Its up to the students and if they get it wrong, its not my problem minus one missing student.

Remember! Course is due to start at 1200 EST / 1700 BST! Everyone must be on TS 30 minutes prior for roll call. If you are to be late, PLEASE send me a PM with the reasoning for tardiness or absence.

Thank you, and see you in 11 hours!
