As most of you know by now, I am not a fan of having a long list of complicated rules.  The Teamspeak server is a shared resource and I expect that it will see quite a bit of use.

The Ehmry Community Standards apply to TS as well. Worth repeating are these points modified:
  • Ehmry members are required to carry on civilized conversations and show mutual respect.  Flaming, name calling, racial slurs, and personal attacks are unacceptable.
  • Do not link to pornographic material in open channels.  NSFW avatars are not allowed.  Violating this rule is a bannable offense without additional warning.
  • The above extends to channel names as well.
Here are some additional guidelines:
  • If you absolutely must use voice activated talk as opposed to push-to-talk (recommended), then please make sure it doesn't activate just from you breathing because that's just creepy.
  • Don't talk over someone else. Relax and wait for a good opportunity to get into the conversation.
  • WvW channels are not for idle chatter, if what you want to say does not directly relate to the WvW map you are in then it doesn't belong in that voice chat.
  • Keep your WvW channel messages brief and to the point.
    Don't say this: "Uhm, I think there are some guys at that one thing over there, I see them, omg they are right here, they are ...uhm .... no ... wait (Mom! Can you get me some juice!?) yeah those guys they are here, I need help!"
    Instead say this: "I am at the NW tower, 8-10 hostiles, 2 rams out, gate at 70%, I am outside will try to make it though the gate, I don't see any friendlies close by."
    Follow up! "I did make it into the tower, gate at 50%, now 12-15 hostiles, I am manning a ballista, 50 supply at tower".
  • Don't stream music over TS.
Should there ever be abusive users please bring them to my attention and I will take appropriate action.
