    Hi everybody!
    My name is Christian and I enjoy racing in Assetto Corsa. I'm looking for some fair, clean racing and noticed that every time I log into the game, your server has a fair few members on it. So I thought I come here and see if I can become part of that.
    I also currently have a minorating of 1510 if that matters and I'm always keen to improve on that too.

    Cheers and have a good day!

    Hey there Christian, you'll need to (read and) agree to the T&C etc and state that you're age. One of the admins will be along soonish to sort the rest out.

    Hi Wyspr, cheers for the reply.

    I have read both of the posts under the TaC and CoC thread and agree with them. Good to see that Admins are keeping on eye on who is joining. Trying to keep things civilized.
    Oh, and I am 32 years of age.
    Hope that is all the info that is needed.

    I'm tipping it's lost in the pre-race TS banter.

    Welcome aboard GIB, hope to see you on track sometime :)
    Sadly our servers always being full is a misnomer caused by the way the servers work and the fact you have reserved car slots, so they look full even when they are empty. :(
    Have a look here to see what I mean http://onlinedawdlers.com/index.php?threads/server-entry.61261/ the 5th post

    I have deducted 10 points from your score for misusing the word "misnomer".

    Let's look at the word's etymology:

    So, literally, the word means "named wrongly". The server is not misnamed in any way at all. What you're trying to say is that the server always appearing full is an artefact or side-effect of the server having pre-allocated slots even though nobody is necessarily playing. This is not a misnomer.

    I've also deducted a further 5 points from your score for spelling "server" incorrectly.

    The missing colon after the word "here" in your final sentence I have forgiven and I won't deduct any points for that lapse in concentration. The comma in your first sentence should probably be a semicolon as well; again I will let this slide for now.

    Please try and use the correct English words in future and your score will recover.

    Regards,
    Wantok
