Default Idea: universal new player tag (+)

I remember a few years back we had the # tag to indicate teamwork oriented players. And I thought it's a good idea if we create a another tag for new players. I think that will help the server admins, PR vets and SL's. You can simply see who needs to be taken care of. I thought of a simple +, calling it 'newbie' sounds wrong and degrading. Maybe you guys have some ideas for the tag.

SL's could name their squads after that tag and everyone on the team will know that this squad is taking it a little slower.

What do you guys think?
Curry.

Every player should be teamwork oriented, else there is no point to playing the mod. Must say had a great game yesterday. No apathetic people, everyone made use of cover suppressing and encircling the enemy where one squad tried to cut off reinforcements instead of everybody going straight for the cache/flag. And the adversary team had it going too. Keep it up.

Great idea! How can we get the message out to the new players that need to engage with this idea for it to work? Something in the manual asking new players to adopt the tag for the first few weeks/ month? What about naughty people that don't read the manual?

Would it be possible to add a message when a new account is created or in the launcher? Or just as another server rolling message?

Nice idea[R-CON] Curry

Cheers, Murkey.

How about [NEW]?

On a serious note, maybe make it the default clantag when you first run the launcher? Newbies probably won't change it the first time they run it.

newbies aren't going to see this thread. Better the other way around and find a easy way for new players to find 'veterans'. name squads 'INSTRUCTOR', 'LEARNPR','NUBSHERE' something obvious. And maybe make a new account [PRinstructor]Curry?

PSA

"Newb" or "newbie" isn't derogatory. You're just new and there is nothing wrong with that.
"Noob" or "noobie" is. It's meant to be mean. However, it can be used among friends in jest.

And I think having a default newbie tag (whatever it is) is a good idea.

+1. Good initiative.
And nice to see [NEW] server with #help Newbies

A few warm words about PR from my friend:
"You can say that I am exaggerating, but i personally think that the Project Reality mod it's one of the best things that could happened to people that play multiplayer games."
