Hey there! It seems you've joined our forums, or are at least lurking! Let me give you the heads-up on what's what around here.ANNOUNCEMENTS
This place is where the developers post the upcoming features of the game, or anything related to Gang Garrison 2 in general. Keep a close eye out for any new threads! This is also where the "Donations"
thread is.GENERAL GG2 DISCUSSION
This is where most of the talk about gameplay takes place. Servers are discussed here, as well as matches you've played in, and features of the game that you like/dislike. Anything about GG2 goes! Polls on your favorite maps and classes, favorite teammates, most fun enemies, you name it! As long as you're polite (As in, don't brag incessantly) you'll be treated with respect and courtesy, except by one or two trolls that inhabit this place. This is where the introduce yourself thread is!
Let people know who you are!Moderators: Teekytots, Quack, TankmanSTRATEGY AND TACTICS
A truly cool place. Learn tips and tricks from the pros! Check the stickied threads up at the top of the section to see if anyone has made a guide for your class yet! A word of warning: The people in this board are really nice, but one way to get anybody riled up is to make a half-assed guide with broken english, bad punctuation, and poor spelling. Guides should be made carefully, not sloppily. Remember, good guides don't have to be long and big! In fact, being big and long does not make your guide good. A good
guide makes a good guide good. Jeez, that sounded redundant. Try to include any special tips or tricks that you use often to help other players, and check other guides to make sure they're not covered already.Moderators: BassieEnAdriaan, Techno VikingGANG GARRISON CLANS
First of all, most new members don't get into clans unless they're well known in-game.
There have been many clans that have accepted new members right away who suddenly leave and never come back. A good rule of thumb is to have 50 posts before applying to a clan. That way, the clan leaders know that you're not going to disappear after a few posts, and will have gotten to know you better. Check the stickied threads for rules and clan info! Also, please do not make a clan if you have the title "Newbie."
It's doubtful anyone will take it seriously, and it will most likely get locked.Moderators: RBY, MuddywaterTournaments and Competitive Play
A board for organizing competitive events and discussing competitive gameplay. This section is for setting up competitive matches, tournaments, and discussing gameplay for these competitive matches and tournaments. Only moderators can make topics in this board, but if you want a topic to be made, PM the OP to RebelINS (or pyropuppy, I presume), with the subject being "Comp thread: thread title," replace "thread" title with the actual title, and they'll review it and if it's good, they'll create the topic for you.Moderators: RebelINSGG2 DEVELOPER DISCUSSION
The more in-depth discussions of the game mechanics take place here.FEATURE REQUESTS
Use the search button before making a topic! Search for what you want to add before you ask for it. Many people get angry when they see people asking for the same thing over and over. Oh, and an FYI: That little tiny character? His name is Quote. You can get him by pressing Q on the character select screen.
Moderators: fishy, Techno Viking, Psychopath BUG REPORTS
You can not start new topics here. If you have a bug to report, please report it at Launchpad (https://bugs.launchpad.net/gg2
This is where the modding takes place using a program called Game Maker 8. Sprite-mods are mods where the characters in GG2 are swapped for other things. This is the most common type of mod. However, there are several excellent coders who can make really cool mods! Search back a few pages, and you might find something REALLY REALLY interesting! A popular mod for Gang Garrison 2 is Vindicator's Mod, which adds functions like chat and rcon! If you see someone flying, someone with the server's rcon password is responsible.Moderators: Insani, WareyaWEBSITE & FORUM
Use the Search Button before you request anything, and if you have an issue that you feel shouldn't be posted in this section PM an admin about it. Also, PM an admin or community manager about complaints about forum members if you have one.MAP MAKING
Here you can find the newest and coolest maps being made for Gang Garrison, as well as tutorials on making them. Maps are tough to make. You can't just whip out one a day. They take time and effort. Be patient, and remember there is always room for improvement! Be receptive to criticism, too. Oh, and try to limit the potential for spam!Moderators: AghGARRISON BUILDER
Garrison Builder is the program that lets you compile your maps.Moderators: LeichePLAYABLE PROJECTS
For projects with a working build. You can not create a topic in this section. If you have a working game, ask one of the moderators in New Projects to move your topic over to Playable Projects!Moderators: BluDragon, BassieEnAdriaanNEW PROJECTS
There are always projects being made. If you have an idea, post in the Ideas thread before making a thread for your own game, unless you already have work done on it. That way, people will know that you are serious. Posting in the Ideas thread can often garner support for your work, and you might be able to get a few people helping you! If you have a working game, ask one of the moderators in New Projects to move your topic over to Playable Projects!Moderators: BassieEnAdriannGENERAL CHATTER
This is moderated, non-GG2 related discussion. Keep threads on-track. Don't post threads about stupid videos, joke threads, or pointless threads in general. It's a place for "serious" discussions that people actually want answers to.
Moderators: Boo, Ultros, A/D, Meower
By popular demand of the site's many creative talents, the art section was born. Show off your work! People might like it.Moderators: RebelINS, SkeletonDudeGAMING DISCUSSION
This is the place to discuss games other than Gang Garrison, or anything game related. This section is not just for video games; board games and console hardware problems can be posted here too. There is a topic in General Chatter for PC hardware problems.Moderators: Theta Zero, QuackFORUM GEMS
This is where the best topics in all of the forums are stored.
Other things of note:
The moderators are nice people. Go to them if you need help with the forums.
When in doubt, Search Bar!
When people say the site was "Nuked" they are referring to a time a while ago when the entire site was wiped clean for two days.
You can change your name at any time here! Go into your "Profile" tab and see!
Numb3r$ in your name = disrespect from lots of people. Remember, you can use spaces in your name. For example, I use Doctor Malpractice, not Doctor_Malpractice.
Don't brag, you'll get looked down on. No one likes being told that someone else is better. If you're better, show it in-game!
Contributing, whether it be a map, a server, or some strategies, is a surefire way to get people to like you!
Just a few more things I want to say.
-Please attempt to use proper grammar at all times, people prefer readable content over silly gibberish such as "u" "thx" "brb" ect. The word "pwn" and variations of such are also not liked.
-Attempt to limit your smiley usage to a minimum. It's okay to use them to portray your mood, but don't use them because they're there.
-Caps lock is looked down on.
-There is no need to sign posts with your name or user-name. We can see your user-name.
-Members will look down upon you for using meme related names, icons, ect. You're judged on appearance too, sometimes.
-Don't hate, appreciate!

This is my updated version of Underwater Basketweaving's newcomer's guide. It includes updated descriptions, the new sections, moderators of each sections, links to the forums wiki and the game wiki, and more. It was probably a little unnecessary to create this, but I was bored, and figured why not? Enjoy!
To all newbies, welcome to the forums, and to Gang Garrison in general. I hope to see you posting.
By the way, stay away from Random Chatter.
