1. Fine..... Newbies: Don't insult anyone just because they won't give you resources. Only insult them after they insulted you first. 

2. Don't Beg for resources from Kurfist he is stingy.

Are you being serious? I'm not trying to be rude but posting a guide to begging is absolutely ridiculous. I mean asking for Resources Is one thing, but when your short of resources you don't have to go on GC saying "Hey guys im out of res send me some plz". If you in desperate need sure Thats fine, but use those resources sent to you to build up your resource production buildings and solve the problem then and there.

I have to believe Squill had his tongue planted fairly firmly in his cheek when he wrote this.  I have been thinking about beginning a discussion of gc etiquette ... perhaps this is a starting point ... but maybe it belongs in the Caravanserai?

No no no.

WE are not going to create a list of rules on how to behave in GC.

squill i just wanna say thank you very much for creating this guide. Begging seems to be a very confusing issue for so many new players and it's obvious that you put in alot of thought and time into the article with that picture and all. I think it should be required reading for every new player in Illy... players like you really make the community we've all come to appreciate, keep up the great work!  Thumbs Up

I find it incredibly strange that someone is ever recommending insults as a course of action.  Even if the other party insults you first, returning in kind is just letting other people dictate your behavior, and still reflects on your character.

Apparently quoting you is a thing now, I feel like having an HM quote, to be in the "IN" group.

But yeah, dotn tell them to give them a piece of your mind.

I wrote this guide in the beginning because of what Rill suggested "gc etiquette"..... But I also agree with Kurfist "not going to create a list of rules on how to behave in GC". (I promote free choice).

Giving it some further thought I honestly think I have written something useful. I have been making quite a profit out of begging with my alt. Sure, this guide might not agree with everyone, but don't think I regret writing it because nobody has liked what I said.
