1. Every manager making an effort to go and talk to every other manager - especially greeting and welcoming newbies. We are all not THAT nerdie that we hide in shells. Heck, many of us talk to each other daily on Chatsky.
2. When the final TC fights are being read, and the two (one if TMM is fighting himself ) finalists are sitting in the chairs, we ALL are quiet and attentive, giving the two best the honor they deserve. We have gravitated to a lot of background noise as some managers ignore or disrespect the runner-up and TCer. We are all honorable folks, and we all appreciate winners. Let's show it.
3. Honor the elderly. Show respect by showering the old guy (That be Consortium, unless Papa Bear shows up!) with free rollups and cash and even a little affection. Who knows how much longer these guys will be around?

I agree with Wayne on all point - though I think maybe the elders should be showering the rest of us with cash/rollups like kindly grandparents!

I agree, especially with the paying attention during tc fights. Though I think a lot of this has to do with long AB v AB boring fights at the top end. More people listen to challengers down than freshman up.

4. TC fights should not be read during the free managers reception open bar....

I do get genuinely excited when the fights are being read, but the excitement is significantly less when the final is two warriors from the same manager. I'm not sure whether I should pull for the left or right cheek.

The manager who feigns the most interest during the reading of each TC fight should win a "known favorites" potion for a warrior in basic. Implement this and you'd hear a pin drop during the readings with every single person hanging on the every word of the reader.
