CODE OF CONDUCT
All members of the guild, regardless of rank, are expected to adhere to this Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct governs all interactions between guild members and other people, either within the guild or outside. This Code of Conduct applies to all members and all means of communication without exception. Breaches of the Code of Conduct will result in disciplinary action from the Guild Leadership appropriate to the player's rank and the nature of the breach.
Respect others. Treat all other players with dignity and respect. Be respectful of other members of the guild, their abilities, their contributions, and any extra duties they perform to keep the guild running.
We all play to have fun. Don't ruin it for other people. It is you, and not the Guild Leadership, who is primarily responsible for whether you are having fun or not.
Be mature. Immature and infantile behaviour is not tolerated. This is a guild of adults, so make sure you act like it.
You are part of a guild. We succeed as a group, not as individuals. Self-centred and self-absorbed attitudes are not helpful.
Not everyone will agree with everyone else. It's a large guild and conflict will inevitably arise. As adults, members are expected to either try to resolve disagreements with other players civilly, privately and independently. Failing that, try to work around it. Approach an Officer for assistance if you have exhausted all other options.
Do not engage in any activity that will bring the guild's name into disrepute. Behaviours such as spamming, trolling, ninjaing, begging, flaming, or other anti-social actions are not acceptable.
Do not use excessive, gratuitous or explicit language. Justifiable mature language and conversation is to be accepted in a guild of adults. Politics, religion, and similarly divisive topics are embargoed.
Abusive, threatening, discriminatory, or prejudicial behaviour of any form is expressly forbidden and will be met with immediate expulsion from the guild. Intentionally vexatious, obstructive, malicious, hostile, aggressive, or insulting behaviour is not acceptable.
Guild rules will inevitably change over time. Members are expected to accept and adhere to new rules regardless of their personal opinions.
Be mindful that the Guild Leadership tries to make decisions that are best for the guild as a whole and for the long term, which may not necessarily correspond to the best decision for you personally right now.
Constructive feedback and discussion on all aspects of the guild and raiding is always welcome. Complaints should not be made unless accompanied by alternative proposals. All feedback and discussion should respect this Code of Conduct.
RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
Additionally, all Guild members who are involved in Raiding are expected to adhere to the following rules as an extension of the Code of Conduct.
Every Raider is expected to do their best. We are not a hardcore guild, but we intend to make the most of our raiding and so have high expectations of our raiders.
Everyone should strive to give their best when raiding, ensure they meet the demands of the Raider rank, and spend time researching how to improve outside of raids.
We love to down internet bosses, but not at the cost of fun. Don't ruin that for others.
Raid spots are not guaranteed, and no Raider is more entitled to raid than any other.
Raids are composed using a fair and transparent system, giving preference to filling key roles (a Raid Leader, and appropriate numbers of tanks and healers) and appropriate adjustments to reflect activity as described elsewhere.
The Raid Leader is the boss. Follow their directions, and be quiet when they are speaking.
Be punctual. Be online before raid invites are issued, and be at the raid entrance and ready to raid before the raid starts.
If you can't be online on time, make sure you leave a message saying so. Do not keep people waiting.
Positive criticism is a good thing. Members should feel free to give advice and suggestions to other players to improve their play.
Equally, Members should view any positive criticism as an opportunity to improve.
Raiders that miss more than 3 raids in a given month will lose their position on the team.
There is a limit of 1 main and 3 alternate characters per guild member.
Players that have not logged into the game in over 3 months will be removed from the guild if they have not notified leadership of the reason for their absence.
