  1. It's always better to educate someone than punish them. Give the kid a chance. I'm getting soft in my old age.
  2. A hugger of ham huh? Not to many people want that job.
  3. I kind of echo contrails here - good post by the way - I think it's the regulars who should endevour to get to know new people (the general public out number us billion to one). Saying that my vote is 'yes', I am not hearing a lot of negative things about you. Sure, more post on the forum would be a plus but who cares about the forums (not me).
  4. The are attained by attending UOTC courses. They are to mark you as having a certain level of competence - useful for slotting no doubt on the server. For now this is a teamspeak 3 implementation, as far as extending it to the forums, no word has been made (so it's unlikely to happen soon). If you have attended the courses and you don't have the tags tthen you will need to speak to one of the UOTC instructors (Yaxxo / Godhand / Upchuk / Jake Peril / Verox / Thawk) to get yours put back on as they have taken notes on who has attained what.
  5. You're all right H.Howard, many people would have given up - good on ya. I would say look at the getting started guide - big button on the right and also read hellhounds guide. Also jump into teamspeak and let us get to know you a bit better.
  6. Congrats on not posting a thread called - I am / want to be a sniper / helicopter pilot where is my slot . You'll fit in here just fine.

  9. I've noticed some slippage in the sig discipline. So this is a reminder as to the SoP's regarding Sig's that were enacted in the community. As per community polls, these are the Sig picture rules and guidelines: The intent of these rules and guidelines is to maintain an appropriate and non-disruptive means of expressing individuality in one's sig picture that enhances the UO community and encourages creative expression. Rules: 1. Forum Signature pictures shall have a maximum dimension of 500X150 pixels. 2. Forum Signature pictures shall have a maximum file size of 300KB. 3. Forum Signature pictures shall be in the following formats only: JPG, BMP, PNG, GIF, and animated versions thereof. 4. Content must abide by Charter and SoP regulations. Guidelines: 1. Maintain vertical discipline, when integrating text into your signature. People browse the forums on a lot of devices, including phones, your spam of vertical text is not appreciated. 2. When posting in a thread, uncheck the signature option whenever possible. Your signature should not be present in a thread more than once. 3. Keep content relevant and appropriate to the community. Minors and ethnic tastes of all kinds use these forums, offensive content will be removed and warnings issued. Thank you.
