For you new TG'rs: Wearing the TG Tags.

Recently with the launch of Battlefield 3 here at TG, and with the creation and adoption of Knyghtmare's TeamSync plugin, I have seen more new TG members and pub players connected into the TS3 server and on the forums than I have ever seen on any title.
I'm posting this out of concern for some of the newer additions from BF3. I've seen and heard of some very non-TG like behavior in TS and in game recently. I joined TG a year ago last month. I had been playing with TG members on Call of Duty 4 twice a week. Since I was between groups at the time and really enjoyed the community, or at least the Call of Duty division, I registered on the forums, read the primer and other required reading, and tagged up. I was warned a few times by CoD admins for some old habits I hadn't grown out of over the next couple of months, but ultimately that gave me a better appreciation for TG's style of play and how things operate around here. Just remember, as long as you are wearing the TG tag you are representing this community and so are held to a higher standard than otherwise. Even if you don't wear the tag, you are still bound to follow the rules and guidelines of this community if you play on our servers or participate on the forums or teamspeak.
When I joined up, this was a part of the recommended reading in the Call of Duty division. The post from Nemesis dates back to BF2 I believe. I think that these two posts give the most insight into what the tags themselves mean, and I strongly recommend that everybody, new member or old timer, take the time to read this.
