Welcome to Instant Death Squad (IDS). Below are some things to help you during your two week trial. Your trial is very important and will determine if you become a full member of IDS.
Remaining active is replying to existing threads, posting new threads, chatting with others in the chatbox, and most importantly, playing games with other clan members. While all of these aren't necessary everyday or all of them all of the time, they help us to determine if you are really going to be part of the IDS community. Some of us do all of these things and others do some of them.
Achieving around 20 posts is again part of being active. Reply to existing threads or post new threads throughout your trial to show you want to be part of the community. Posting to 20 threads very quickly and not being seen again during your trial is not suggested. It is suggested that you have meaningful posts while on your trial and not just reply quickly with a couple of words to get the 20 posts accomplished. While it is required that you achieve around 20 posts, feel free to post more often. Posting welcome messages to other recruits during your trial period will not count toward your 20 posts. Do not double post on threads at any time.
The chatbox is open to you during your trial and you should feel free to enter into chat and get to know as many people as possible. Chat about anything you want but be respectful of everyone all of the time. You can post links here as well, simply copy the link, paste it in the chat entry line, and click send. However, nothing obscene or offensive can be linked. Do not link anything that is not from a secure trusted site at any time.
We pride ourselves on respecting each and every clan member at all times. None of us agree with everyone, their opinions, or their preferences all of the time but we always have respect for each other. Do not use offensive words, terms, names, racial slurs, or say anything you wouldn't want said to you. We expect our members to be good sports and be respectful of all players in all of the games we play. If other people start trash talking and berating other players, refrain from doing so. You will be wearing IDS tags at all times and will be representing IDS at all times, so it is never good to act disrespectful. Please keep these things in mind during your trial and after. You will be asked to leave the community if this is not adhered to.
Please go to the proper location for the games you play and put on your new clan tags. They are to be [IDSr] and are to be worn at all times. If you need help with this, send a private message to your retention officer. After your trial is over, your name will appear green and you can then remove the 'r' from your tags and join a squad.
While some of the tabs are self explanatory, take a look at all of them.

You can click on your name anywhere on the site and go to your wall. Your wall is where you post things you want to share without making a thread. All of your friends will see the post on your wall and can comment or vote for it if they want. You can post your mood, pictures, videos, links, etc. You can share with others the games you play. Post pictures (Nothing obscene or offensive) of yourself and anything that interests you. You can add website friends and see all of your friends as well. You can go to anyone's wall by clicking on their name anywhere on the site. On their wall you can send them private messages, invite them to a private chat, or even post to their wall. Do not link anything that is not from a secure trusted site at any time.
