Yeah Thursday was fun. As soon as we turned that corner I was looking in the left view and saw you get ahead. Good time good times.

We should have a standard ID for an open, public on-line room. Of course we can still use our own lounges, if that is what we need to do, but having a public room, always using the same ID, would be a good, healthy move which gives us an easy way to not only find ourselves, but to encourage more GT players to join us for our events, etc.

Because we would be representing the SONY forum, we would have to be very careful of our conduct on-line, however.

Any ideas about how to do this, so that it stays fun, but doesn't get out of hand?

By "ID" do you mean the Lounge Title? Somthing like "Sony/GT Forum Racing"?

Sounds like a good idea to me. I don't race online often, but I'd head for a regular forum lounge if I saw one open.

I agree, sounds like a good idea and I would race whenever I have the time.  Hope someone can make this work. 

If it ain't broke, I haven't fixed it yet.

I don't know how it is now, but past behavior in GT Saturdays Events (such as rough driving, corner cutting, not following rules/specs), attitudes, and comments posted in the chat by Forum regulars in the GT Saturdays, is exactly why you NEVER see any TPRA involvement anymore. If all racers participating are not held to a respectable standard and it is not Enforced, we cannot expect the numbers to grow.

The only way I see to really deal with behavior like that would be to have a "dedicated host", and that person would ONLY host (not race), freeing him up to quickly boot anyone causing hayhem. But this wouldn't be much of a fun time for the host. Smiley Sad
