Players will be required for TeamSpeak roll call in the TGU channel 30 minutes before the module.
Anyone who is not present 10 mins before the scheduled start time will be counted as absent and will be disallowed from participating in the next module run for the game in which the module was missed.
What not to post:
"What time will it be in my time zone?" Work it out. "Are non-supporting members allowed to participate?" Yes. However, supporting members get priority. "It's not fair! I keep getting pushed out by Supporting Members!" Become one. "Can you change the date?" No, the date is confirmed. "I'm on the reserve list. How good are my chances of playing if I show up?" Decent. There'll inevitably be a few cancelations before the session and there can be one or two no-shows on the day of the session.
Quick Session Information Date:"Aug 17th" Time:"6:30pm est" Be on Teamspeak By:"6:00pm est" Estimated Duration:"1 hour" Server: IP/Password Given in Teamspeak Module:"Basic Squad Leader" Number of Students:"up to 8" Credit badge:
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.
Without teamwork, you'll never survive.
Without betrayal you'll never win.

PS: I might not be able to make it, but I figured I'd hold a slot for now. I'll let you know by this weekend if I can't make it.
"But in contemplating history as the slaughter-bench at which the happiness of peoples, the wisdom
of states, and the virtue of individuals have been sacrificed, a question necessarily arises:
To what principle, to what final purpose, have these monstrous sacrifices been offered?"

You may go on the reserve list.
The advantage is that your absence won't go on record if you're absent.
The disadvantage is that if the class size fills up, then you may not attend.
If I'll be absent I guarantee I can inform you in advance - I won't just no-show unless something quite significant comes up - but how late is too late to inform you? If you need a good 48 hours or so before the class then I guess you can put me down on the reserve list because I might not know whether or not I'll be able to attend in-time. However, if you don't mind me informing you on Sunday about my possible absence, then I'll go on the main list if that's OK with you (I should know by Sunday). Monday is obviously a little too late.
