Don't be an ass but don't take yourself too seriously either! Common sense reigns supreme Mutual respect not only for your guild but also the community at large is a must.
Remember, carry yourself well in game, from how you name your character (names directly referencing pop culture (BattleBieber) or that are vulgar/offensive in nature will be denied membership, again, common sense) to how you chat and present yourself to the community as a whole while wearing the Vanquish guild tag. In regards to names we will not be overly strict, again use common sense...if you question your choice in the least then perhaps another name would be a better option. Names that are obviously for attention getting may be asked to change. Vanquish Guild and Ventrilo chat is to be kept "R" rated and for the most part, game related. Niche conversations or topics that alienate the guild as a whole will be asked to be taken to tells or a private channel.
You represent something more then just yourself now, do us proud and remember... YOU are the face of the guild.
Whining in chat or vent. I have my very own definition of whining - "Complaining about something over and over again to the same people and those people can do nothing about it."
Be the source of drama. I know tifts and disappointment will happen, we are human after all but should you go out of your way to cause drama within the guild you will be warned twice then removed. Drama comes in many forms, from actively causing issues and strife amongst the members and community to posting topics and chat that is a source of unease within the guild. Again, common sense reigns.
Ask to be removed, or go inactive without notice. Hey, we are not for everyone and thats ok! If you ask to be removed from the guild I will do so and do so respectfully as we shake hands and part ways as friends who see things differently. Also, should you go MIA on us for a period of 30 days+ WITHOUT a heads up as to why, you will be removed from the guild. We will be adamant about this. Remember, removal due to inactivity is far from being BOOTED from the guild, your re-invite is ready when you are should you make a return!
Making an ass of yourself and in turn the guild. You are the face of Vanquish, your actions are our actions...joining the ranks you no longer play just for yourself. I know MMO players can be notorious for "striking a nerve" but I ask that you turn the other way, maybe turn off that /ooc chat for a bit or solo and blow off some steam but loosing your cool while wearing our tag is not acceptable. I do NOT mean that I wold not expect you to stand up for or defend something you firmly believe in but ask yourself if a MMO is really the best forum for such before you do.
Cheat or exploit in ANY way. Self explanatory and not flexible; zero tolerance. The Vanquish definition as written by Lt. Belgaram and endorsed by Oakos! "If the dev's are working toward a way to make it so you can't use a certain strategy or tactic, then it's in my eyes an exploit. If for example, you use the environment to circumvent a mechanic as it was intended and the dev's implement (and it is posted on enough in forums etc) some sort of "fix" or post that they are working on a fix. It is an exploit. If, however, the questionable strategy goes unaddressed, then who are we to call it an exploit? It may be a tactic that we don't condone. It may violate your ideas of what a strategy is, it may even be against every fiber of your gaming belief! But that doesn't necessarily make it an exploit. "
