Â Â on GameTaste.com and to learn the in's and out's of GameTaste
Â Â Â The only contact you need on GameTaste is mailto:email@example.com.
Â Â Â Â This keeps it simple.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â + Please make sure every member of your team understands thatÂ Â Â Â Â respecting other GameTaste members is essential to being a
Â Â Â Â member of GameTaste. Being disrespectful, racist, harassing,
Â Â Â Â taunting, or cursing every other word will result in suspension
Â Â Â Â from any GameTaste matches and possibly expulsion from
Â Â Â Â GameTaste all together.
Â Â Â + There areÂ 4 things that will get you suspended or expelled from GameTaste.
Â Â Â 1) Disrespecting; 2) Cheating; 3) Forfeits; 4) Vulgar Content.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â + Upon Joining GameTaste, each co-captain and team member must add one of
Â Â Â theÂ following to their friends list: GameTaste, GameTaste 1, GameTaste 2,
Â Â Â GameTaste 3, GameTaste 4, GameTaste 5, etc.
Â Â Â You can only be on oneÂ GameTaste friends list.
Â Â Â + Each team should maintain at least 6 total members: 1 Captain,
Â Â Â 2+ Co-Captains,Â and 1 Warrior.
Â Â Â + In order to stay a member of GameTaste and to participate in the GameTaste
Â Â Â Championship Tournament, you and your team must play at least 20 GameTaste
Â Â Â matches in each full calendar year. Starting 2009, each team playing 50+ total
Â Â Â GameTaste matches will be eligable for ourÂ MVP Tournament.
Â Â Â + All content on GameTaste must be clean.Â All music, pictures, and profiles
Â Â Â must be kept free of cursing, racisism,Â nudity, etc. Anyone or any teamÂ Â Â Â
found with any such content will be suspended or expelled from GameTaste.
Â Â Â + When recruiting new members,Â make sure they specify what team they are joining in the comments section of their profile.
Â Â Â Â + Only team members carrying your team initials in their gamer tag are allowed to serve as Captain or Co-Captain.
Â Â Â Â + You must appoint one regular team member as a GameTaste Warrior (co-captains can not be Warriors). That person must be extremely respectful and knowledgable of all GameTaste rules. WarriorsÂ silently help police GameTaste, and, they serve as sustitute players for otherÂ GameTaste teams when needed. A Warrior may not serve as a sub if they are to play against their own team.
Â Â Â + When playing in a match or tournament, at least one team Captain or Co-Captain must participate in the match at all times or you will forfiet the entire match.
Â Â Â Â + GameTasteÂ Division Leaders have full authorityÂ over GameTaste
Â Â Â and it's members. If you have a concern, you
Â Â Â Â should consult with them. They are here to
Â Â Â Â assist you in anyway possible and are very trustworthy and fair.
Â Â Â Â If you are unable to get your concern resolved, only then should
Â Â Â Â you contact GameTaste or Chuck Rock.
Â Â Â Â + Inner GameTaste recruiting is not allowed by any GameTaste
Â Â Â Â team. Nor you or your team members are allowed to recruit from
Â Â Â Â other GameTaste teams. Anyone wanting to leave one
Â Â Â Â GameTaste team to join another GameTaste team must have it
Â Â Â Â approved by the Captains of both teamsÂ and Division Leader(s) prior to leaving.
Â Â Â If a member decides to switch teams on GameTaste without approval,
Â Â Â Â they will haveÂ to serve a 30 day suspension from all GameTaste matches
Â Â Â Â and tournaments. This rule is in place to insure the integrity
Â Â Â Â of our teams. There is absolutely no inner recruiting on
Â Â Â Â GameTaste. If a team or individual is found to be recruiting
Â Â Â Â from other GameTaste teams, suspension is probable.
Â Â Â Â
Â Â Â Â + When playing scheduled or non scheduled matches on GameTaste,
Â Â Â Â it is up to the Captains of the winning team toÂ post the
Â Â Â Â results on their page.Â Only the winning team should post results. The
Â Â Â losing team can either agree with the results or dispute them. If theÂ Â Â Â losingÂ captain disputes a result, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org
Â Â Â immediately with an explanation. If no explanation is received, the results
Â Â Â will stand. If any captain is found posting false results, theÂ
Â Â Â entire teamÂ mayÂ be suspededÂ for a minimum of 90 days, or expelled.
Â Â Â This is a very serious violation.
Â Â Â Â + Before playing a non scheduled match with a team outside of GameTaste,
Â Â Â you and the team you areÂ going to play must both text ??? vs ??? toÂ theÂ
Â Â Â GameTasteÂ profile on XBox LiveÂ BEFORE the match.Â BOTH teams must do this.
Â Â Â If this is not done, do not post the results on GameTaste.
Â Â Â + If you want to play an unscheduled match against a GameTaste team, simply sign in to GameTaste and challenge that team from their team page. Once their Captain has accepted, you may playÂ that match and the winner needs to post the results.
Â Â Â Â + It is highly encouraged that someone from each team, during a match, use their cell phone and take pictures of the T.V. screen between rounds showing the score. This informationÂ may beÂ emailed toÂ email@example.com toÂ resolve any disputes, if needed.
Â Â Â Â + Any team forfeiting 3 matches in a row will beÂ removed fromÂ
Â Â Â Â GameTaste forÂ the rest of that year.Â With the
Â Â Â new scheduling system, you can opt out of being scheduled at any
Â Â Â time.Â Therefore there is no excuse for forfeits.
Â Â Â Â + You can trick out your page with your own custom pics and
Â Â Â Â music.Â Everything must be clean with no vulger content. Any songs with
Â Â Â offensive/racial messages are not allowed. Anyone or any team caught
Â Â Â Â cursing on their profile will face immediate suspension or expulsion.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
Â Â Â Â + If you need clan members we now have recruiting rooms on GameTaste.
Â Â Â One effective way to recruit are onÂ the X-Box Live message boards. Simply
Â Â Â go to the Live forums,Â choose the game you play, and post a message
Â Â Â saying you areÂ recruiting. Don't recruit to fast or you will do your team more
Â Â Â Â harm than good. If you ever get a bad apple, don't be shy about
Â Â Â Â telling them how it is and possibly kicking them. It only takes
Â Â Â Â one bad person to tarnish your teams rep.
Â Â Â Â + Have all of your team members add GameTaste or GameTaste 1 to
Â Â Â Â their friends list...NOT BOTH! This will allow them to receive
Â Â Â Â messages from GameTaste and to connect with other GameTaste
Â Â Â Â members
Â Â Â Â + Every Co-Captain should add GameTaste 2 or GameTaste 3 to
Â Â Â Â their friends list...NOT BOTH! If you are in the Cobra or Viper
Â Â Â Â Division, add GameTaste 2. Scorpion or Raptor Divisions, add
Â Â Â Â GameTaste 3
Â Â Â Â + Please do not share your password with anyone for any reason If you
Â Â Â forget your password, GameTaste can reset it.Â
Â Â Â Â + If you want to add to this Co-Captains page, please email your
Â Â Â Â addition to firstname.lastname@example.org"
Â Â Â Â All entries may not be used but willÂ be considered on an individual basis.
Â Â Â GameTaste belongs to youÂ and it's other members. We value you ideas and
Â Â Â suggestions andÂ we build GameTaste from what you share
Â Â Â Â + GameTaste willÂ schedule teamsÂ in any games they want to play.Â We must have a minimum ofÂ 2 teams that play that certain game to schedule them. Games can change at any time depending on their popularity.Â
Â Â Â Teams which want to prticipate in the GameTaste ChampionshipÂ Tournament
Â Â Â (which is every November/December and is worth wellÂ over $1000.00 in cash
Â Â Â and prizes), must have squads in the 3 games chosen for the tournament (plus
Â Â Â one Overtime game). The tournament is a points based tournament, usually 1
Â Â Â point for each map won. It is encouraged that each team build squads within there
Â Â Â team for each game
Â Â Â Â + Every January 1st, each teams record will be reset to"0 Wins
Â Â Â Â and 0 Losses"
Â Â Â +Â Proxies are no longer used on GameTaste
Â Â Â
Â Â Â Â + GameTaste has the goal of having a better environment to play
Â Â Â Â in....but it can't be made perfect. Please use the tools you
Â Â Â Â have on X-Box live to block any communications with a disruptive
Â Â Â Â member or team. If GameTaste receives constant complaints on a
Â Â Â Â single member or team, GameTaste will remove them from our site.
Â Â Â Â We have in place a complex complaint system where members only can
Â Â Â post a complaint on a member or a team. When you click on the :Post a
Â Â Â complaint" link, it will show who complained and when. If a variety of
Â Â Â complaints come in on an individual or team, they will face suspension
Â Â Â or expulsion. If you need to be detailed in a complaint, email:
Â Â Â Â email@example.com.Â Please be detailed.Â
Â Â Â Â
Â Â Â Â + During the summer months, your team will seem like it's falling
Â Â Â Â apart because everyone goes on vacation or goes to stay with a
Â Â Â Â relative. Do not let this discourage you, it is quite normal.
Â Â Â Â Just keep recruiting and don't get discouraged at your missing
Â Â Â Â members. If you stay true to them, they will return when school
Â Â Â Â starts back. Anytime someone disappears, just consider itÂ
Â Â Â Â "missing in action". You will be happy when they return. Until
Â Â Â Â then, it is your job to hold the team together
Â Â Â Â + GameTaste has a commitment to each and every team to make this
Â Â Â Â a more pleasant environment for everyone. If a team or
Â Â Â Â individual is sending you insulting messages, put it on your
Â Â Â Â screen, take a picture with your cell phone, and email it to
Â Â Â Â mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Â Â Â WeÂ will take appropriate action. If it is a voice message, call
Â Â Â Â Chuck anytime before 11pm eastern at 336-831-5205 so he can
Â Â Â Â listen to it. At GameTaste we will not tolerate any type of
Â Â Â Â harassment or trash talking. If anyone has a problem with this
Â Â Â Â approach, they shouldn't be on GameTaste to begin with;
Â Â Â + Suspension is defined as: Suspended from any game, scheduled
Â Â Â Â or unscheduled, that is for the purpose of posting a win or loss on
Â Â Â GameTaste; And Suspended from any GameTaste Tournaments/Events.
Â Â Â Anyone found playing in a GameTaste Match/Tournament who is suspended,
Â Â Â willÂ cause their entire team a suspension or expulsion
Â Â Â Â
Â Â Â Â + More to come!
