  • Required Reading just got easier to consume

    Many thanks to [MENTION=8124]aeroripper[/MENTION], who has lead the admin effort to transition our Required Reading to a Google Document which is easier than forum posts to read (and maintain).

    This document is now the authority for this information and is the only resource cited in the Required Reading sticky thread.

    I'll also be trimming the "M > Info" menu in the game, and most (if not all) of the remaining buttons will point to subsections of this new document.

    On second thought, I've kept the old stickied Required Reading thread, but I've just updated it with the new content, so that old links to "Required Reading" won't be broken.

    I've edited OP to reflect this.

      The M > Info menu has been slimmed down significantly to just 3 categories. Newer players that have technical questions (scoreboard letters/icons, reserved slot logic, etc...) and any other similar information, can be directed towards the M > Info > TGNS FAQ link. That should cover pretty much anything related to the server.

      Any player asking how they get a reserved slot, should be directed towards "M > Info > Required Reading". I cleaned up this area significantly, and made it (hopefully) much easier to read and navigate for new players. I'm most interested in feedback on this change, or any other part of the document!

          I mentioned this in-game, but just to ensure it is not forgotten: The "Press M > Info > TGNS FAQ" or whatever text that shows up on the screen overlaps with the "get a commander to start the game" and similar splashes.

            That is me using sh_csay when I'm on the server. I turned my objective banners back on so I can see when those are displayed :)

            I tried the document (just today in fact) on 3 different browsers to see if I could reproduce this. It looks normal in all 3. Do you have custom "large text" settings in windows or have your zoom level beyond 100%?

              Re: Required Reading just got easier to consume

              I'm running google chrome. Here's another picture. http://i.imgur.com/l2diFW5.jpg Notice the text appears to WANT to be the right size based on how it looks when selected. :/ Zoom is at 100%, no large text options that I'm aware of. If I try zooming in and out with the mouse wheel, it doesn't fix this problem, just makes it smaller/bigger.

              Also, under "I'm banned" it says contact an "NS" admin... maybe that should be "TGNS" admin?

                Hmm. I'm going to leave it as is until others indicate they're having the same problem (could be an isolated issue on your end). I've changed "NS" to "TGNS".

                      I'm at a loss as what's causing this (and how to fix it in google doc). Initially I thought it was something to do with my page margins (they're 1" on left/right, and 0" on top/bottom) but then it would appear weird for everyone. I am also using google chrome. Do you guys have an custom add-ons or plugins that change text size within google Chrome? Are you able to test with other browsers like firefox and see if you receive the same results?

                      EDIT:

                      Under your google chrome advanced settings, do you have any text settings under Web Content, beyond "medium" selection? Any custom fonts used for chrome? I've tried very large but it has no effect on google docs for me.

                        It's weird but I assume it's an issue with my browser, as only part of the text is formatted wrong, the PC I am using is a fresh install of both windows 7 and chrome, with no settings changed to chrome, but using chrome on my iPad it's all good. Go figure. Thanks for making it all easier to read, it should help the community grow
