What Is The Guild Constitution?
This article will provide a better understanding of the Constitution and all it's contents within.
- Contains all the information that has made Sarnautians the guild it is today. -
- These are additional rules and guidelines that focuses on all things that members are required to uphold on a daily basis. -
MR:5 Begging is annoying. If you need anything, be it money, help with a quest or boss, or maybe gear or even general information, feel free to go ahead and ask for it. But please don't spam. And who responds well to demands? Correct, no one. So please keep your requests, questions, and comments civil and polite. (We love to help others, just not total pricks.)
- Additional Core Rules that all members need to uphold. -
BL:3 Visit the guild web site and register as a member.
BL:4 NO CHEATING! This includes but not limited to: our web site and voice channels.
BL:5 Don't spam (You are tarnishing not only your reputation, but the guild's as well).
BL:6 Offer suggestions to better the guild (we care and listen to all our member's opinions).
BL:7 Help provide the guild resources of any kind (our leader founded the guild; our members help make it stronger).
BL:10 We respect all other players in the game, whether they are soloists, groupies or your fellow guild members. Alive or dead. Do not verbally assault other players in-game. This means no seriously raunchy taunting or any verbal attack that could impact a person's ability to play and enjoy what MMORPGs have to offer. Do not (unless justified) dance, stomp or otherwise harass the corpses of friends and/or enemies. It's rude and makes the entire guild look bad.
BL:11 Every member of Sarnautians has the potential to be a sole representative of the guild. That said, you should handle yourself as well as endeavor to represent the guild in an appropriate manner. This includes spelling, grammar and otherwise. Please retain a professional yet casual outlook at all times as much as possible.
BL:12 By all means, share the wealth with your fellow guild members. Offer them bargains on items amongst other things. Do NOT rip-off, jip or Jew your fellow guild members under any circumstances. This is NOT tolerated.
Standards of Conduct
- Title says all. -
Guild Focus = Community
SOC:5 It is not permitted to relay any information outside the guild, for any reason, at any time.
SOC:6 Sarnautians is a guild that is exclusive to its members and possible players wishing to join our ranks. We do not share information with the public except through official channels and officially sanctioned outlets. Therefore, no member should reveal any information, no matter how minor they may think it is, outside the guild.
SOC:8 Leadership roles in our guild are decided based on demonstrated ability, seniority and the need for a leader in a particular spot. You can be assure that your superior officer of any ranking is working hard to make the game a better experience for you. While the reason behind every decision may not always be apparent at the moment an order is issued, all orders from superior officers need to be immediately followed. If errors are made, they should be reported to the guild leader where they will be dealt with and, if needed, changed made to the superior officer team. Absent those changes, all superior officers should be listened to as though it was the guild leader issuing the order personally.
SOC:12 Have self-respect. No begging in guild chat, and especially not in say, zone, shout or even world chat. By all means ask for help when you need help, but make the distinction. If it is not immediately urgent or no-one is around to help, try the forums. For quest assistance, do some research, and if needed, plan a date and time, asking for help from people through a forum post or setting an event on the calendar of the guild web site. It's easier to help those who help themselves in this respect. Please refrain from auctioning or selling items in guild chat - that is what the more public channels mentioned above are for. HOWEVER, you may sell stuff in guild chat so long as you don't spam. Also, these are your guild members; do not rip-off your fellow guild members. Offer discounts, simply be kind. If you are looking for services such as crafting then your requests should be polite and specific where possible. Guild members are under no obligation to fulfill the requests, however if they are not busy and have the time to spare, then providing assistance is encouraged. These should be non-exploitative, neither overcharging a guild member nor making a profit from another good will. If a guildies offers you something cheaply, buy it to use it, not to sell it elsewhere. If no response to your request is received in guild chat, then direct whispers may be used. By all means repeat the request after a reasonable amount of time has passed but absolutely do not spam!
- General instructions related to doing what is mentioned in the title of this document. -
GO:1-2 Be courteous to all players, regardless if they are fellow guild members, allies, or enemies. Insulting other players (guild member or otherwise) reflects badly upon the guild and will not be tolerated in any form. Respect is earned, courtesy must be given in order to maintain a friendly guild.
GO:3 Be cautious with your language. Occasional swearing is likely to occur in guild, group and voice channels but is strongly discouraged; however, should be completely curtailed in public. Also, be mindful of the ages and temperaments of other guild and group members before using any language which might offend.
GO:5 No cheating, hacking or exploiting. If anyone is found to be in breach of any game policies you will be reported to the game's developer and removed from the guild. No second chances.
