Title: [READ] Guild Charter
Post by: Evoroth on June 04, 2011, 18:36:42 PM
Guild Charter

The below charter should be interpreted as an extension of the nervousENERGY Community Policies and Guidelines (,1090.0.html).

Our Members and Their Responsibilities
The members of nervousENERGY are expected to have good spirit, be punctual, responsible, to respect the guild and it’s members. Most of all, they are expected to be friendly and participate to the overall atmosphere and mood of the guild in a positive and constructive manner.

There is no room for self-obsessed people taking their own personal progress, loot, etc as a number one priority. nervousENERGY is all about the team, the progress of the guild and the people behind that progress. Most of all, nervousENERGY is about the fun of the game whilst still maintaining a high-level of gameplay.

  • New members join the guild at the rank of Initiate. Initiates are subject to a 2 week probationary period. During this period, the guild leadership team will be looking at the following:
    • Activity
    • Contributions (to the atmosphere, guild community, guild assets (optional))
    • Interaction with other members
    • Participation in guild events
  • Inactivity - if after 60 days a player has not been active without prior warning given to any Officer or higher they will be removed from the guild. This includes any alt characters.
  • Guild Bank - (TBA Everyone is able to deposit and withdraw items and currency into the guild bank, however, the number of withdrawals is dependant on rank. If you have reached your daily withdrawal limit, then contact an officer to retrieve the item for you.)
  • Taking items simply for the purpose of selling them on the Auction House for your own profit will not be tolerated and will result in immediate removal from the guild. No exceptions.
  • Alt Characters - If an alt character is being used in a dungeon then other player’s main characters take loot priority.
  • If you’re unsure ask, no question is silly or unwarranted.
  • The buying and selling of ingame currency will not be tolerated and will result in an immediate removal from the guild and report to game masters.

Core Rules
  • Guild First: We expect all members to ensure that all actions they take are done in the mindset of 'guild first'. Anything a member does reflects on the overall guild image and on all fellow members. We expect members to only take actions that reflect positively on the guild image that we have worked very hard to build and maintain over the years.
  • We recruit the PERSON not the CHARACTER. We look for good PEOPLE not only a character that meets a specific set of requirements. As such members of nervousENERGY cannot be a member of any other guild within SWTOR.
  • Participate In Guild Events. PvP, Flashpoints, Raids, Events and other in game activities occur all the time so if there's one organised to take place. just sign up.
  • We are a TEAM of FRIENDS. Backing up your guildmates is expected because they will do the same for you. nervousENERGY members understand that sometimes personal character sacrifice is needed for the team to complete a mission. We don’t view it as personal sacrifice, however, because we are helping out a friend and that is more important than loot or pixels on a screen. Games come and go. nervousENERGY and the friendships within it, remain.
  • Members who cannot follow core rules and standards, are removed from the guild.

Standards Of Conduct
These standards go hand in hand with our core guild rules and community P’s & G’s but they bare repeating so all future members understand what we expect from members. Those standards of conduct include, but are not limited to:

  • Members may not use cheats or exploits
  • Upholding of all guild values and rules is required of all members. There are no exceptions whether you are a member for 10 days or 10 years. All members must maintain the values of the guild.
  • Members need to behave in a mature, professional, team focused manner. Self focused, loot focused, immature people will not be tolerated
  • Make friends in the guild. At our core we are a team of friends. So make friends. Those friendships make us strong.
  • Any issues with guild policies are brought directly to the Guild Leader, 1 on 1, via PM on the forums. Publicly bashing or complaining about them is not tolerated.
  • Personal attacks on other members is not permitted. Handle issues with another player 1 on 1, in a mature professional way. Seek an officers help if needed but do not personally attack other members.
  • Backstabbing, looting, stealing from, scamming or otherwise harming other members is not permitted. It all goes back to our core value that we are a team of friends.

Our approach to raiding is simple but effective.
  • Loot management is yet to be decided. We will be in a position to make a better decision on this when the game is launched.
  • If you sign up to a raid, you must turn up. If you are absent, you are replaced by a standby player until the lockout of the raid instance expires. If you are unable to attend you must inform your raid leader no less that 24 hours prior to the raid.
  • Each member of nervousENERGY understands and agrees that loot is a tool for progession and not the overall goal of progression. We raid to clear content, not for shiny new items.
  • While being involved in a raid, members are expected to attend for the full duration and to only break away from the raid at officer approved break times.
  • The Raid Leader is in charge of all raiding procedure. Input is valued, but is to be kept until after the raid has finished or until it is requested by the raid leader him/herself.

Blah Blah Blah,
