structure has three levels of admin and two ranks of responsibility:
the Admin Team (AT) <event leaders, sack holders> and our Pearls.
Within the Admin Team (AT), there is one role and responsibility. Our
AT's have to shoulder the responsibility of maintaining all of the
various aspects of the Linkshell. This includes acting as recruiters,
moderators, and overseeing the day to day activities from enforcing the
rules to hosting events. Our goal is to ensure that everyone in the
Linkshell is treated fairly, mediate any problems that occur and to
ensure that all LS activities are coordinated and overseen to
facilitate the cohesion of the group.
Member Rights and Responsibilities:

Responsibilities. Failure to do so can result in suspension or outright
removal from the LS, in extreme cases.
WarmApplePie Linkshell Forums are where linkshell discussions are held.
PLEASE POST PROBLEMS TO THE FORUMS. This is very difficult for the
admin to address issues "on the fly" rather than over time, using our
forums. Members are expected to check the forum at least once a week,
to stay up to date on the issues at hand. The Events Forum and Dyanmis
Forums are the main ones to check, if you don’t wish to read the rest
of the daily chatter; those two boards are where important topics are
posted, and scheduled events are listed.
We have a number of
forum topics that provide information. These are about the game, the
rules of the linkshell, and various other topics. These topics are
often stickied at the top of a particular board, to keep them highly
visible. Members are free to post in these topics, with questions or
comments that relate to the topic at hand.
are overall a pretty laid-back linkshell. However, discretion should be
used when talking in linkshell chat. There are no prohibitions against
cursing, telling jokes, or such; however, members should attempt to
keep crudity and excessive cursing to a minimum. Verbal attacks towards
other LS members is not tolerated, and will be dealt with swiftly by
our leadership. This includes racial, ethnic, or religious slurs or any
other discriminating language.
If you are offended by the
language or topic being discussed, please politely make your feelings
known. If you are uncomfortable doing that, contact any AT member by
/tell. If this doesn't work, or the discussion is considered to be
acceptable by the AT member, you may want to temporarily leave the
shell and ask the AT member to notify you when the language/discussion

member’s main job is the one they signed up as, or are needed as in the
linkshell. The Roster details what job we are counting on you to be,
and that job will be considered your main. This is based around a need
for a specific number of members who use a certain job, to be most
useful for the linkshells activities. For our regular scheduled events,
a member is expected to come as the main job for their character as
listed on the roster, unless requested by an AT member ahead of time to
meet the needs of the event.
Also the LS may be short on a job.

change, but change will be made within this forum post prior to said
rule being carried out. However, under EXTREME circumstances, these
rules are subject to slight variation.

said in LS Rules, you are given a main job on the roster. This will be
your designated job that you should usually show up to at
Dynamis/Events. However, you may be asked to change by a AT prior to an
event. If you refuse to change jobs based on the need for that
Dynamis/Event, action will be taken by that AT at their discretion.
This could be anywhere from not being allowed to lot AF to extremes of
not being allowed to attend the Dynamis/Event.
is recommended that you set LS/Party chat to HOLD under your config
menu. While in Dynamis/Event, LS chat is restricted to only ATs,
Leaders, and Sackholders. Party chat is free to chat during the event,
but don't take advantage of this right and not focus on an event cause
you were typing too much. Anything said in LS chat should be seen
immediately and not be flooded with spam. Set your filters accordingly.
try be on-time to all Dynamis/Event(s). Failure to be on-time may
result on you not being allowed to enter/attend said event. If you
must/know you will be late to a Dynamis/Event, please try and notify an
AT prior to the event. Failure to do so is irresponsible on a member's
a member is to go unexpectedly absent from events for a period of time
considered irresponsible, then the said member could be put on
suspension or even removed from the roster as a member. Uninformed
absences are not tolerated by any means.
Dynamis Lotting Procedures:
I know you all probably just scrolled down to get to the good stuff,
but the other information above is important, as well
will be no points system for lotting. This is due so that members will
not intentionally "point horde" to the point where it is virtually
impossible for any member to out-bid them. However, attendance is taken
at every Dynamis/Event. Therefore, excessive absence and only showing
up for runs that you will profit from will result in you not being
allowed to lot on any AF/items.
Before each Dynamis, every member will set their /seacom for a Tier I and a Tier II AF that they so desire.

someone who has the same item in their Tier II slot. You must be able to /equip the item in your Tier I slot!

are attending. Also, as stated, if someone has your Tier II item in
their Tier I slot, they take priority over you. However, you're Tier II item can be for ANY job/level you desire, even if it is level one!
There should be no lotting disputes. However, if a lotting dispute does arise during an event, the above rules STAND!
Members should not expect for an AT to make an immediate decision in
