Top 10 LAN no-no's! Courtesy of HARD-OCP

Postby Khemikal on Mon Sep 09, 2002 2:26 pm

Yeah, yeah so we're a bunch of antisocial geeks who'd rather hook up our PC's in somebodies garage or basement and frag each other rather than go out to dinner with the family or to a ball game. Despite that fact the LAN party does provide for it's own form of social interaction with ones peers and there are certain standards of etiquette that have evolved for this enviroment over the years.

After witnessing some of the violations of said etiquette over the past couple of years I thought I'd take a moment to document the Top 10 LAN party Etiquette Faux Paus:

10. Bringing snacks/beer for yourself and not sharing with the group.

9. RSVP'ing and then failing to show without even a courtesy call to say you're a loser.

8. Disconecting someone elses CAT5 line from the router while trying to get your own rig set up.

7. Turning off the power switch to the powerstrip powering not only you, but also your buddies machine!

6. Sucking up limited table space with your rig and then proceeding to play single player games while group carnage is in progress.

5. Fooling with someone else's PC settings or config without clearing it with them first

4. Smut mining or otherwise digging for files on others computers on the LAN without getting permission first.

3. Tipping off your teammates as to enemy positions after you've been whacked

2. LAN scouting (i.e. looking at everyone elses monitors) while you're well entrenched as a camping whore.

And the number one violation is...

1. Sucking up bandwidth by surfing for smut over the shared Net connection while everyone else is trying to play online!!

Most broken rule by far.

Nope, but there will be a big thread about it when someone finally does.
