          Last night, same individual wearing TG tags, three times at least. I'll not mention any names in the forums of course, but I will send a PM to the offender to ensure the message is loud and clear.

          As we all agree, I am sure, this is entirely unacceptable. It is like farting in someones face.

            Why make this thread if you can just PM the person and ask them to stop? Or at least don't put the GUIDE tag if there is no guide to speak of.

              Equally so, why not.

              This issue occasionally needs to be raised like a public service announcement -- it has happened in the past and discipline in TS is of paramount importance.

              If this thread is indeed inappropriate, I trust that Admins will lock it and accept my apologies.

                I thought it was great, and funny :)

                  I agree that a guide wasn't necessary. I'm all for increasing etiquette, but calling out a single action performed by a single individual is the wrong way to do it. It it's an action performed by multiple people, then sure, create a PSA. Otherwise, sending a PM gets the job done effectively.

                  The reason for "why not" is because it sets a precedence for frowned upon actions, regardless of the magnitude or frequency. We don't need a separate thread for every poor action.

                    Don't let my 70th brethren get you down. I thought it was a great guide. Eloquent, yet to the point. The font, font size, and text color just come together perfectly to convey the message. While you did not get into specifics, you covered the basics well enough for anyone to understand.

                    +1 rep from me.

                      Amen. I remember the same thing happening too much on TG TS3 during the BC2 Beta. Sometimes it's people that think "voice activation" is a good idea, and other times it's the purposeful "push to talk" variety...both are teh_fail.

                        Frank Zappa once famously posed the question, "Does humor belong in music."

                        Here I have posed the question, "Does humor belong in Thread Tags?"

                        As serious as the subject is, I meant the GUIDE tag as humorous, and so indeed it was received by some. Pretty well all aspects of TG culture and SOPs have been the subject of humour at one point or another, but if I have crossed a line here, let it be said so clearly that I may not cross that line by accident again.

                        True, I could have and should have immediately addressed the issue at the time -- standard discipline procedure in most circumstances. I will make an effort to be more immediate and direct in the future.

                        This is an occasional issue, not a one time occurrence. It seems to come up in my TG TS experience every few months, so a forum discussion is hardly out of line.

                        It is also an issue that in my mind merits documentation and discussion for better understanding the culture of TG and online gaming.

                        Far more trivial and arcane matters have been raised in these threads.

                        Burb.

                          Guide is good for basics but lacks detail. Could be improved by adding suggestions for when it is best to not burp in Teamspeak, how to encourage squad cohesion by synchronising your non-eructation, and tip and tricks for holding it in. Also, could you contact the devs to see if the occasional spontaneous, uncontrollable belch is an intended feature or a bug?

                            What if you can burp the alphabet? Is it then appropriate to refer to flags with a burp?

                              I would think the goal is to belch the NATO phonetic alphabet. Anyone uploading a video of this feat will win a free book from a renowned author.
