As Blade and Rose is fast becoming a very large guild, I feel it is time we discuss guild rules and policies. Rather than mandate these too you, I will allow us all to discuss and have input on rules and reach a concensus. There will, however, be ground rules that are non-negotiable. These are as follows:
- Keep vulgarity to a minimum. I do not mind a few casual curse words, but large amounts of profanity or profane comments will not be tolerated.
- Respect other guildmates and officers. You do not have to agree with everyone, you do not even have to like everyone, but you do have to treat everyone in the guild with civility and respect. If there is an issue between two guildmates that cannot be resolved peacefully between them, then report it to an officer or myself immediately and we will decide the course of action to take.
- Be considerate to others beliefs and values. Not everyone believes the same things, or has the same idealogies. Refer to Rule 2.
Those are the ground rules. Please suggest and discuss other possibilites for rules. If you need inspiration, feel free to review the rules of other guilds here on GWO. I do not want to be an authoritarian, but at the same time, I do not want our guild to be anarchy. Punishments should also be discussed for violations of these rules.
Everyones input is welcome and encouraged. I want this to be our rules, not just my rules.
