A working computer microphone and a copy of Ventrilo are mandatory for all TC members. A private Ventrilo server is maintained by the guild.
All recruits start on a 30 day trial period. At the end of the trial the guild leaders discuss the recruit and a decision is made.
An excessive amount of complaining, non-constructive criticism, arguing within the guild, etc., will result in removal from the guild. This does not mean that members can never complain, criticize or argue. The keyword here is “excessive”, meaning that it reaches the point where it affects guild cohesiveness. Any guild member that engages in excessively disruptive behavior will receive a cautionary warning first, and if that behavior continues, they will be booted from the guild.
TC has a standard of quality game play that we intend to maintain. If any guild member is found to be extremely lacking in their gaming skills, they may be voted on by the IC for removal from the guild. The important phrase here is “extremely lacking.”
We will not allow special cliques to form within the guild. Everyone in the guild should get to know all of the other guild members, and be equally helpful to all of them. For balanced grouping purposes, the IC may have to adjust gaming groups so that all guild members get a fair group when they play.
No Mangina Cyber Love Fests
The very hint of any cybering going on between guild members is grounds for immediate removal. Where real-life relationships are involved, it should go without saying that this will cause far too much trouble within the guild.
No Idiotic Public Posts
If you want to act like a fool, we have private boards for you to do that. Don’t post on public forums about the guild, how bad ass you are, or how we were foolish enough to add you.
Respect Your Guild Members
You are required to treat other members of the guild with respect. How you actually feel about them is not relevant, but your behavior is. Feel free to interact with anyone outside of the guild however you like, as long as it doesn’t violate any of the guild rules.
