Ok. "TUTOR_" (without "") should be best option for Tag name.
And about you, Kerryburgerking. Great idea. That was in my mind all day. What i should talk to new players etc.
Pls, stick this thread somewhere. So every veteran that would help will know about it.

I suggest opening a forum for new guyz, and post it on the main page , so everyone will see because not everyone go to the forums, especially new people.
And make it very clear on that official thread that everyone will see that they will read the PR MANUAL.
I remember playing with new guyz that didn't read the manual , you cant be patient with people that don't even know the basics. So PLEASE make it very clear for new people to read the PR MANUAL before going online.

Personally I am going to open squads called "FRESH MEAT" when I will want to squad lead.
And ask at the beginning who is a newb, and give them the medic kit\new specialist.
Those are in my opinion the most important roles to master at the beginning.

Project Reality is going to have a well needed influx of new players in the next two weeks. One of the selling points for PR is the teamwork based nature of gameplay. It is now up to the veteran community to actually extend their hand out and welcome the new playerbase into their squads, on a daily basis, and show them around our little corner of the gaming internet.

That means:
  • 1. Not locking asset squads to non-Clan members.
  • 2. Not kicking new players from squads if they are floundering.
  • 3. Taking the extra step to help total strangers get acclimated to PR's game mechanics and gameplay style on a regular basis for the coming weeks, during each and every gaming session.
  • 4. Generally providing "teachable moments" admonishments instead of defaulting to the "kick that noob" mentality when dealing with seemingly clueless new players.
  • 5. Be a good human being to those who might not have a strong grasp of the native language on the servers. In many ways, the future of PR is going to be in the developing nations where moderate performance, moderately priced hardware, and fast and reliable enough internet connections are just now becoming widely available.
  • 6. Run some training squads, name them training squads, and take on the task of getting new players up to speed in PR.
  • 7. Be nice enough to point people towards the online manual, which is being updated and will be available hopefully on release day.
  • 8. Invite new players into your gaming clans/groups, let them see and participate in the larger community that has developed around the PR game,
  • 9. The larger clans should break out and run 2 or 3 separate squads, filling the squads out with new players, and working in a mindset of multiple squads working together. Bring in a few clanmates in each squad, use the buddy system with new players, anything you can think of to get new players a good experience during their first impression of Project Reality.
  • 10. No racism or prejudice.

.
Good luck with that.

Yea, the highlighted suggestions are basically nigh-impossible until the newbies get at-least 2 months experience.

+1 for Beginner's Forum

One thing newbs should know is:

DO NOT GRAB VEHICLES!

This will prevent from our "l33t" guys to rage spam admin to "kick dat n00b for wasting assets" and newbs will not get confused and quit.

Second thing is to make Beginner's server where clanmembers are not allowed. Yeah, this is the best option. Make pr0s fight pr0s and n00bs fight n00bs...

One more I would like to add:

Be more tolerant of teamkills, because it's going to happen a lot, especially with missing name-tags for some players.
