If you've never played TF2 and don't know the basics, look at the TF2 wiki to see info about the different classes, their weapons, different maps, and different game modes.
This is how this will go down:
I will play the role of the Administrator/Announcer(I will be playing too, however). I will tell when the round begins, when it ends, and who wins. I will also keep track of how many points each player has.
Before each match, we vote on which map to play on from a list of different maps.
Depending on the game mode and the map itself, you will be given some setup time. You may change your class during setup time if you want. If setup time is not given, you will begin to play immediately after the round has started and you will not be able to change your class until you die.
To join a team, simply post which team(RED or BLU) you want to join along with the class you want to play as. However, If one team has one more player than the other team, you will be automatically assigned to the latter team. Only when the teams are completely balanced can you specify what team you want to be on, but you may choose any class. You cannot change teams unless the match has ended and we move on to a new map.
If you are killed, you can't post(or "respawn") for ten posts unless the post is off topic or you want to change classes. Unless in arena mode, you can change your class during this time. Just be sure to post your new class before you respawn.
To prevent complete insanity, the maximum number for players on a team will be 15, making total players 30. Those who want to join but the game is full will sit in "Spectator Mode" until the round has ended. When the round has ended, the spectators will replace those with the lowest score, and vice versa.
Everyone will have only the original weapons during the beginning, but every so often I will announce a "random drop" in which a random player or players will receive a new weapon.
Here's the first list of maps to vote on. In time players will be able to nominate maps for voting on, but for now we'll use this list:
