Lately, there has been a huge number of players entering the wonderful world of NOTD due to it being spot lighted. I for one have been very delightful to see this happen because it's allowing me and many other community members to see fresh faces playing a game and experiencing joy that many of us experienced when we first started playing NOTD. However, with everything being said there have been some negatives of this mostly related to cheating/hacking. As with all things of this nature, there will be players that fall to the dark side. Lately, its been a real pain for me and the mods to process these cheaters/hackers because there have been a lot of these players popping up. So I'm going to be making a few suggestions to everyone part of this community to see if we can alleviate this problem together because the wardens and Mods can't do everything on our own. Remember that the developers of NOTD, MODS, and Wardens will always do their best to do accomplish their jobs and will always be more than willing to help you guys, but you guys must help us in return as well in our times of need in regards to NOTD. Anyways without further a due, here is how some of you guys can help the Wardens and Mods with this current problem. When you guys start to play public matches, do your thing and help and new players in w.e way you can. However, don't force feed too much information onto these new players, only give them the bare minimum. NOTD does require a lot of knowledge and information before one can get consistent in winning, but remember that it also takes multiple games of practice as well. Anyways, please mention the following point to them in the match at either the beginning of the public match or towards the end of it. This is just so that they are reminded of this and that that point stays "fresh" in their minds. You can also mention this in the NOTD chat channel when new players ask for advice or tips. - Please don't cheat in NOTD by modifying your bankfile or obtaining one that is not your own. We will find out about it and you will be punished. - Please mention to them that we have a forum and give them this link being notdstarcraft.com (there is tab for forum when they enter that page) - Also mention that we have a wonderful and updated wiki as well. - If you friend any of these new players, then pass along these threads to them so that they can read it. Main Rules for playing NOTD New Members Introduction Thread New Players' Guide to becoming more integrated with the Community Note: you don't have to do everything I listed here, but doing one thing can make a small difference in my opinion. I'm open to more suggestions for points, but I think this can help with the problem. Obviously, it won't stop the amount of cheating/hacking there is, but hopefully it can alleviate it to a certain extent.
