Nephandi - Etiquette, Vacation & Responsibilies

Guild Chat and Ventrilo Etiquette
The specific issues we will address are those of extreme nature. Any use of bigotry, racism, or similar forms of slander will be dealt with swiftly and harshly. We are a guild that allows many players from different backgrounds, and you do not know who you may be insulting. We are an adult guild, thus R-rated discussion is fine, though be aware if the subject is touchy.

Harassing other members or creating unnecessary arguments is strictly prohibited. Humans hold grudges, and many times will go to great lengths to let others know of those grudges. Because of our inherent flaws, we must work to avoid exploiting them. If you are causing an uproar, you may find yourself in another guild.

Finally, we arrive at Ventrilo. Ventrilo is not a free service, and since it is considered the property of the owners, you will abide by the rules. Ventrilo is, at most, PG-13 material. Many of our members are parents who have young ears nearby, and we are not here to teach them stuff they should not know. Be aware of what you're saying on Vent!

Going On Leave
Through everything within the game, please don't forget your friends in the real world. Real life comes first: take care of your college, job, and future before gaming. It's important as a citizen in the real world to be able to have strong real-life contributions to sustain another life in the digital realm. If you are ever in question as to your time commitment to gaming, talk to an officer or a friend. If you can't commit an extensive amount of time to gaming, we understand. Please make the effort to contact us before going on leave. When issues clear up in real life and you wish to embark on the online quests again, you will have a home.

Player Responsibilities
By its simplest definition, a guild is considered a group effort. As a part of this community, we require your input and skill. Likewise, there may be tasks required of you. In the case of World of Warcraft, many players will have to buy or farm in-game resources for raids. Don't expect someone else to do it for you, because that makes too much work for some individuals. If everyone puts in their due effort, our successes will come quicker.

If there are items in the game that other players could use that you have no use of, it's always a good gesture to help them out. In the case of raids, all players worked towards getting those items to drop. If you'd sell it for gold when another could use it, you should pass to them. Note: the loot system will handle many of the end-game issues, but no system is 100% perfect. If we are looking out for each other, we will never run across such problems.

Legal Responsibilities
Whatever a game company allows in a game is what we allow a members to use. If Blizzard deems a piece of software illegal to use, then we are not to use it. We will not give ourselves an unfair advantage that other players aren't allowed to use. The Terms of Service provided by the companies are to be followed in its entirety.

Again the TL;DR version...

Don't start foaming at the mouth in vent... If you have an issue with something that someone is saying in vent, do not bring it to the officers until you've talked to that person. We are not here to mediate every little scrap of interaction between guild members. If you can't talk to someone directly, then you need to address that problem first. Rants or topics that make the other members uneasy should be taken somewhere else. We have removed a guild member for talking about a RL situation that made us wonder if we should report it to the authorities.

If you're going to disappear for 3+ days, leave a message. If you're gone for an extended period without anyone knowing the reason, we may remove you from the guild and recruit to replace.

Help each other out when you can in game and you'll find that people will help out in return. If you ask for help often and never show any gesture of returning the favor, then you may find yourself without friends.

And never, ever bot. If any officer catches it... you'll be removed.
