Aspiration // Rules and Policy
RULES AND POLICY
It does not matter how strong you are. What matters is that you have character, care and above all, respect. Aspiration will not tolerate trollish behaviour. Yes, we are aware that the internet is a place where we can say or do whatever we want, a place where we can express our own opinions, but those opinions might not be shared by everyone. Jokes made at the expense of others are frowned upon. We do not need obnoxious people here who keep this chat active but destroy its friendly atmosphere. Annoying people who do not offer anything in the development of this clan, but instead cause it to be an irritating and frustrating place for its members will be banned. We will not let drama or senseless arguments from people hinder our progress. We believe that everyone has the capacity to offer something unique into our clan, but those who cannot find it in themselves to be polite and nice to one another have no place here. We are a clan of friends. Our leaders and moderators will do our very best to keep it that way.
|Be a good Sportsman This means do not complain or have a negative attitude during our chat sessions, group events, or game nights. The whole purpose of these social occasions is so that we can enjoy each others company and have an overall good time with one another. Having one or more people bring down the groups vibe with whining and grouching is childish and makes the other members attending feel annoyed or frustrated. No further discussion needed.|
|Do not argue in public Public chat & forums are not the place to make your personal disputes known. If you have a problem with another clan member that cannot be solved between the two of you, please speak to a Justice Officer about it. If you have a problem with a staff member, please consult an Owner or a Clan Director – preferably one you trust. Do not openly engage in direct and personal arguments on the forums or chatbox. Note: The “Member Complaint” form is a good way to deal with most issues.|
Upon joining the clan, members will undergo a probation period of two weeks before you may be accepted or rejected from full membership in clan. During this time, you are expected to be active in game and on the chat, so we can get to know you and vise versa. You may be denied membership for any reason with or without warning.
|Chat Rules – Enforced by Mod’s|
|Policy 1. Have fun, Respect others, don’t Rage Any malicious gossip, unwarranted aggression, or attempts to ostracize a clan member is highly inappropriate and go against the clan’s ideology. Respect is something that every person deserves, we are here to game and have fun. Any person(s) who can not control their temper or lash out at others will be expelled from the clan. We will not tolerate such childish behavior.|
|Policy 2. Do not talk about religion In order to prevent future arguments, talking about, or belittling: any race, religion or sexuality is prohibited. Beliefs are a PERSONAL subject, keep them to yourself. Others might have different attitudes about religion, so do not bother jumping into arguments, or defending certain stances. Understand that others might not agree with YOUR beliefs – it is a pointless cycle to argue about them. We are here to game. Contact an owner or mod if you see such arguments occurring in chat. If one insists on defending once’s stance, you will be asked to take your dispute elsewhere and vacate the chatbox at once. If you refuse to leave, you will be guested or banned.|
|Policy 3. Do not Flame or Troll (1)Any attempts to flame or troll is viewed as disrespecting the clans environment. Try to be mature, or act like an adult when you visit this clan. It does not matter how old you are, how much you contribute to the clan, or how “drunk” you are, there is NO excuse to disrespect others here. (2)Different people have different personalities and preferences and therefore what you find funny, may actually hurt others and what you consider a joke, may not be a joke. Our priority is to have a friendly chat, where people despite their opinions can have fun. Trolling, either by joking around or flaming, is against our rules and therefore is forbidden.Any flaming attempts of any kind, are also forbidden, despite the motives and will be addressed with a guest or ban. Be aware.|
|Policy 4. Do not Advertise other xat chats Who doesn’t have favorite chats?! I do at least and I am certain you do as well. However, to avoid chat link spamming, inappropriate chats and chats that may bother a specific group of our members, chat advertisement is forbidden in general. You are free to advertise your favorite chats elsewhere to enjoy them with your friends. Advertising them on our chat is against the rules though and will eventually get you punished.|
|Policy 5. Do Not Beg for Days/Xats/or Powers In order to avoid spam and to offer a great and vast chat experience for everyone, keeping the atmosphere as friendly as possible is one of our first priorities.”Begging” for either days, powers or xats is against our rules, as it bothers most of our members. Some may need help to get access to xats, however, our chat is sadly not the place to start begging for them|
|Policy 6. No selling or Trading Accounts In order to secure your account information, trying to sell, buy, or trade any accounts in Aspiration is prohibited. You are welcomed to do so in some other chat, but we will not be held responsible for your transactions. In order to avoid being scammed, we suggest you keep your account information to yourself to prevent any shortcomings. Scamming will not be tolerated and will result from a permaban from the clan. Please help us keep our members accounts safe and report scammers to an owner.|
|Policy 7. Do not post porn, shock sites, or screamers.Keep links appropriate. While Aspiration is not responsible for member posted content, we do not condone inappropriate material. This includes pornography and links to pornography and related sites, and links to or encouraging the use of illegal material|
In order to further protect the sanctity of our chat box, all guests who are not in the clan, but who are frequent visitors of our chat are more susceptible to having our rules imposed on them to a greater degree than our clan mates. Our members have priority to this chat box. We monitor who we let join our ranks, and expel those members who are not capable of following our rules. All members should be capable of following our 7 simple rules. Our policies are not to be over regulated on our members, but to be used to prevent guests from tarnishing our environment. That goes without saying, trial members who are still in their probation period are also susceptible to these conditions.
|Policy 1. Do not let others influence your behavior. Don’t not be easily talked into kicking/ banning another member, or guest, just because someone else wants you to do so. Only administer a kick/ban/ guest with probable cause. Remember that you are in a position to mediate most arguments and/or deal with trolls. Use this power wisely.|
|Policy 2. Support your fellow mods and owners If you see a mod addressing a bad situation, such as a dispute or a member causing trouble, help that mod if you think its necessary. Our aim is to address and solve disputes immediately. Having prolonged arguments only manages to get other members involved – causing an even greater argument which is harder to control. Refer the parties involved to the clan rules and make sure that you and any other mod handling the situation are firm with your decisions.|
|Policy 3. Don’t abuse! I don’t care who you are or how long you’ve been in the clan. If you abuse, you will be stripped of your modship immediately. END OF STORY!|
