The Eternal Watch was created to provide a family atmosphere for general game play with a primary focus on end-game content (raiding) and raiding progression, as well as PVP grouping. Many of our guidelines focus around raiding; however, some common sense applies. In general we hold our members to a standardized set of behavior guidelines and ask members abide within reason to this Code of Conduct. Those not following these guidelines are subject to discipline and possible removal from the guild.
If interested in joining the guild, please do not waste your’s or our time applying if you do not believe you can follow these guidelines.
The Eternal Watch Code of Conduct
All new members are invited on a 2-3 week probation/recruiting period. During this time you have full rights as a member for signing up for raids and loot. The “recruit” status is primarily to designate who is new to the guild for everybody to get to know and interact with. After this trial period there is a guild vote and if we feel you have proved your worth within the guild, you will be promoted to full member.
Do not demand a promotion! Demanding advancement through the ranks proves to us you're probably not the best candidate for a promotion. That being said, if your recruiting period has completed and you have not heard otherwise, feel free to inquire with an officer on your recruit status.
Before a group/raid you are in begins, make sure you know the loot rules if any. Understand them. Obey them.
GUILD CHAT / VENTRILO ETIQUETTE
In addition, although we are an older group of players, realize cussing and other profanity is not routinely acceptable due to many of us having younger family members playing. In general, if you cannot say the same thing to your parents or at a job interview, chances are it’s not going to be tolerated in guild/Ventrilo chat. We realize raids and in particular PVP can be heated at times, and we ourselves are guilty of an occasional slip, just don’t make it commonplace.
- Not every member of the guild has all max level characters; for some people this might be their first character on a MMORPG. If somebody asks a silly question, even if it's something obvious like "How do I move?" don't pick on them. You were a newbie at one point, too. This holds true for members and strangers alike.
- If you say you'll "BRB", do not keep people waiting 45 minutes wondering where you went. If you make plans to do something with other members of the guild don't flake out and not show up. Real world activities can be forgiven; however, if you agree to run an instance or go on a raid, don't decide at the last minute whatever quest or PVP stuff you're doing is more important. Don't make the commitment if you don't intend on following through…particularly when it comes to raiding.
These codes of conduct can change at any time…
