GuildRules

Please be aware that it is a requirement to be the age of 16 or older, in order to be a member of Alith. 

Although we are not a prescriptive FC, all FCs have rules; ours are there only to ensure that our community is kept friendly and casual and that everyone has an equal chance to enjoy their time together in game, discord or the social media within that community.


FC recruitment:

Upon registering and completing the application form, applicants will be contacted by an officer via email with the outcome – this process can take up to 48 hours to complete so please be patient while we review the application.
Your outcome email will provide you with further details and instructions.


FC conduct:

  1. FC members should all be mindful, polite, courteous & respectful when chatting in FC chat.

  2. Alith members are not to be made to feel inadequate on FC runs or put under pressure in any way and under any circumstances. Mistakes happen and all members should be patient / understanding.

  3. Insulting, name calling or being generally rude to others will not be tolerated. This includes inappropriate conversations or sensitive subjects which could make others feel uncomfortable or offended. (Including but not limited to topics of a sexual nature, strong language, religious / political views, in-game performance etc)

  4. Racism, abuse, bullying, offensive remarks, ganging up or any sort of misconduct towards fellow FC mates will not be tolerated and could result in removal from the FC.

  5. Although healthy debates are welcomed, arguments between FC members should be discussed in private and not publicly or in FC chat.

  6. Failing rule no. 5, any personal grievances or dissatisfaction should be brought to an officer’s attention to be dealt with.

  7. Encouraging or driving conflict, tension and negativity in FC chat, discord, social media or forum is not tolerated. The community should strive to help defuse disagreements, reach friendly, respectful compromise, not escalate and/or join in.

  8. Gold selling or use of gold sellers, boting, use of cheats, and any breaches of EULA (End User License Agreement) are strictly prohibited and may result in instant dismissal from the FC. Please report anything suspicious to the officers for investigation.

  9. All members must understand that Alith is an "English Speaking FC" and English must therefore be spoken at all times, to ensure no cliques are formed or suspicion arises from other language conversations.

Forum Conduct:

Please note that all FC and other conduct rules apply to the Forum.

    1. The forum must NOT be used to express derogatory opinions regarding other players in the game and their guilds. This puts Alith in a negative light and discourages others from using the forum.

    2. Please refrain from posting content of an NSFW nature or which could cause offence to other members, this includes but is not limited to racism, sexism, bullying and abuse or ganging up.

    3. Please post responsibly. Officers will remove images or content which may be deemed to cause offence to other members.

    4. Please do not use the forum to settle personal disagreements.

    5. Please do not advertise any other FCs, services, sales or supplies (yours or otherwise), any content that could break EULA, nor anything else that could be considered as commercial, for profit/non profit, or be detrimental to Alith. In addition, fundraising for charitable causes, whether recognised charities or for individual benefit is not permitted on any Alith platforms, including the Forum, Discord, Facebook, Twitter or any other such platforms that Alith uses or may use in the future. In the event donations are inadvertently advertised for such charities, donors do so entirely at their own risk and without any recourse via Alith, its officers or other members or responsibility thereof.


Discord Conduct:

Please note that all FC and other conduct rules apply to Discord.

    1. Members should always be courteous and polite within Discord. Avoid speaking over others deliberately and repeatedly. This is impolite.

    2. While we welcome any discussions in Discord, all important guild news, updates and official discussions will continue to be raised in the Forum. Links to forum threads may be posted in Discord to direct members to said threads.

    3. The Alith Discord server is only to be used by Alith guild members, unless authorised temporarily by an officer.

    4. Any members who leave the guild, or are removed, will be automatically removed from the Discord server as well.

    5. We encourage opinions / advice during raids on voice channels, but to maintain order in Discord this needs to be done in party chat when the Raid Leader has requested for silence.

    6. Alithians should not use the Alith server to post recruitment adverts for other guilds, and should not post invitations to other guilds Discord servers in the communal channels.

    7. Please refrain from using the mention tags such as @everyone and @here more than once per channel/per day. Officers may use these for important announcements and these are NOT to be considered as spam.

 

Discord Music Bot

Click here to read the full Discord Music Bot briefing

    1. All members are permitted to make use of the music bot. The bot can only be controlled with commands typed into the "Song-Requests" text channel in Discord. Please ONLY use this channel for typing commands, and not as a general chat channel.

    2. The Music Bot will only be available to listen to in the "Karaoke Lounge" voice channel - this is to avoid conflict between which channel the bot is being used in, and to make sure everyone has the opportunity to listen to it

    3. Although music with profanity is permitted as we are an adult guild, we would ask that members be considerate of others. In this spirit, In the event that a member expresses discomfort due to music being played with strong language - we ask that members show courtesy and revert to "cleaner" options of songs for that period of time

    4. Music with clearly offensive & inappropriate language (as described in our general guild rules page) is not permitted to be played on the music bot

    5. Members should NOT use the music bot to play audio which is not music (sound effects, spoken audio, etc..) Members should also NOT use the music bot to "troll" members, prank members, or to deliberately make others feel uncomfortable - i.e Rick Rolls, parodies, comical videos, etc.

    6. Members must NOT spam, i.e. playing the same song repeatedly

    7. Members should also consider others, and give others an opportunity to add their own songs to the queue, and avoid "hogging" the queue with excessive requests. As a rough guide, we would ask that members leave a gap of 3 songs before requesting a second personal choice. The exception to this is where there is no other members requesting any music

    8.  Songs played by the bot must be allowed to play fully, and should ONLY be skipped or stopped if ALL members in the channel agree to it

      If you are having any difficulty using the music bot, have a query or want to raise a concern - please contact any of the Alith Officers.

 

Public conduct:

Please note that all FC and other conduct rules apply to Public Conduct.

    1. Public Chat channels must NOT be used to express insults, criticism or negative opinions regarding other players in the game and/or their FCs. This puts Alith in a negative light and damages our reputation as an FC.

    2. Members should not participate in or instigate arguments with other players within public chat channels or FC chat.

    3. Dissatisfaction with another player or FC should be discussed privately and any complaints wished to be raised, must be sent privately to an officer to deal with.

FC Buffs:

Buffs are determined by majority votes on buff surveys and will have a fixed schedule (subject to change). Officers will do their utmost to ensure buffs are continuous but this can not be guaranteed at all times and is subject to officer availability.

  1. Ad-hoc temporary change requests to specific buffs are permitted.

  2. Requests must be made directly to an officer who will check in FC chat for objections. Should no objections be raised the buff will be replaced accordingly and for all the while no members request to revert or natural expiry whichever comes first.

FC grouping policy:
