Grievance World of Warcraft – Horde Guild Charter
This Charter in no way supersedes the Grievance Organization charter. All members should make themselves familiar with that charter prior to joining Grievance!
This Charter can and WILL change as the guild grows and matures. The application & promotion process WILL become more complicated and harder as the guild grows. The Guild Leader reserves the right to make changes and rulings to this policy at any time, including on the spot if needed in order to correct loopholes and keep things fair.
Clauses to be aware of……
Guild Leader Clause
The Guild Leader reserves the right to make decisions that may at times supersede and/or contradict the charter and policies of the Guild. These decisions must never be made lightly and always be done with the betterment of the guild as a whole in mind. The Guild Leader also has last word on all decisions concerning the Guild, Guild forum section, charter, and/or anything pertaining to the Grievance World of Warcraft-Mok’Nathal Guild. All decisions made by the Guild Leader can and will be reviewed by the Grievance Council to ensure fairness to all members.
Common Sense Clause
No policy is 100% safe from exploitation and the officers are here to make sure all things are done fairly. All changes made to the charter in this matter will be reviewed by the Guild Leader before being set in stone.
No Drama Clause
Any member found to be causing and/or instigating extreme drama within the guild will be asked to leave. The Guild Leader will make the determination of what qualifies as extreme drama, and what does not.
The advancement of the Guild is all-important. Guild progress equals personal progress. If you are not a team player then stop now and look somewhere else. We don’t want you!
The Guild’s responsibility to you, the player
The Guild is responsible for your main character and only your main character. As a Guild we will help gear you up with great items and help you complete the necessary quests needed to progress your character throughout Azeroth.
Player’s responsibility to the guild
You, the player, are responsible for your own actions and all other characters that you may play from time to time. At no time will the Guild intentionally hold events/raids with the sole intention of specifically progressing anyone’s alternate (alt) character. If said alt happens to get on a raid and possibly even receive a loot drop from that raid then consider yourself lucky!
Applying to Grievance
Those whom are interested in joining Grievance should first sign up on the forums at www.grievanceguild.com then post within the “Forum Registration / Applications” forum. This is a requirement for ALL future Grievance members no matter what Guild / Clan they wish to join. Once you have posted you can send a PM to the Guild Leader or just wait until someone replies to your thread directing you on what to do next.
Requirements to join Grievance
- Applicant MUST register on the Grievance forums prior to invite.
- Applicant MUST be 18yrs of age or older. Exceptions may be made for real life friends / family.
- Applicant MUST have TeamSpeak downloaded and able to fully communicate with other players.
- Applicant MUST have read the Grievance Organizational Charter AND this Charter prior to joining.
All members will go through a three week recruitment period during which time they may join us on TeamSpeak and get to know the other members of Grievance. Communication is extremely important in today’s gaming world and we have dedicated TeamSpeak channels for you to use. This is to give us, as well as you (the applicant) an opportunity to see if your membership into the Guild is a good fit or not. Applicants found not to be a good fit will be notified and then denied membership.
Three Strike Rule
All members are allowed one free pass back into the Guild (no questions asked) unless they were kicked out or left on bad terms. Said member will have to go through the recruit process again. If after the 3 weeks they have shown they really want to be back then they will be let back in as a member. Any member that got kicked out and/or left on bad terms please refer below to "Strike two!" below. You used your first strike.
If a member has left the Guild a second time ~or~ had been removed and/or left on bad terms. Said member must present his/her case in front of the current officers (that must include the Guild Leader) to state their case for re-admittance into the Guild. Said officers will discuss the applicant's case then the Guild Leader will make a decision based on the information at hand. As in the above paragraph, said member will have to go through the recruit process again.
If any member has left Grievance twice for any reason other than RL (real life) circumstances or helping another recognized Grievance Guild/Clan, then said member is not welcome back into the family and will be Life Banned from the entire Grievance Organization. Grievance does not believe in a revolving door policy and expects its members to think before they act too hastily when it comes to leaving the Guild. Said member may schedule an appointment during the next Grievance Council meeting if he/she desires to petition/appeal a Life Ban.
As always, The Council reserves the right to override any of the above for the betterment of Grievance.
Guild Ranking System
Guild Leader (GL)
The Guild Leader is responsible for the overall smooth running of the Guild, the Guild forum, and anything else pertaining to Grievance WoW-Mok’Nathal. It is the Guild Leader's responsibility to set in-game and out of game (if necessary) goals for the Guild to provide the proper direction and course for Grievance. The Guild Leader has the final say so on all things pertaining to the workings of the Guild and its membership. At any time the Guild Leader may assume the responsibilities of any other Officer position within the Guild if necessary and can override any decision made by another officer if said decision is deemed to be detrimental to the Guild. As an extension of the overall Grievance Organization (Grievance Global Gaming), the Guild Leader is expected to operate and make all decisions with the betterment of Grievance as a whole in mind.
Executive Officer (XO)
The XO is literally a direct extension of the GL and only answers to the GL. The XO is in complete charge of the guild whenever the GL is not present and has the GL's authority to make on-the-spot decisions for the betterment of the Guild if needed. As with the GL, the XO can assume other officer positions if needed. The XO can override another Officer's decision (with the exception of the GL) if deemed necessary.
Recruiting Officer (RO)
The RO is ultimately responsible for the growth of Grievance and all matters pertaining to recruitment within Grievance. It is the RO’s responsibility to indoctrinate new recruits into the Guild by going over what is expected of them.
Task Leaders (TL)
Task Leaders are directly responsible for certain tasks within the guild itself. These tasks can range from Raid management, managing the Guild Bank, organizing crafters, assisting with recruiting, or just being responsible for get groups going on a daily basis. Task Leaders are appointed by the Guild Leader and considered Senior Members within the guild.
These Members have met the qualifications to be considered active raiding members. Said members will take priority and be chosen to participate in raids before other members within Grievance. Any member may a raider as long as they are able to fully commit to the raider requirements.
Senior Members are those that have contributed to the guild over an extended period of time. Senior Members will not be required to raid unless they wish to and the opportunity is there for them to do so. Senior Members may become raiders, but must meet minimum Raider requirements prior to doing so.
Members are those that wish to enjoy the family aspect of Grievance without the obligations of having to raid. At no time will Members be required to raid unless they wish to and the opportunity is there for them to do so. Members may become raiders, but must meet minimum Raider requirements prior to doing so.
Upon being accepted into Grievance, a new member is considered a recruit and has three weeks to meet certain Guild qualifications. Recruits may join in TeamSpeak and also join in various guild activities, as space permits. A recruit may not guild any alts until they have completed their recruitment period.
Guild Bank Rules
-Low Level items are discouraged from the guild bank unless of higher quality. Keep all low level items in your own personal bank that you think other possible members will use. Most items are constantly dropped and are easy to find and therefore not necessary to keep in the guild bank.
-Items in the bank will be sorted based on type and quality; therefore deposits should be made in appropriate spots.
-The Guild Leader and Officers are the only people who can withdraw items from the Guild bank Tabs 6 and 7. Items located in these slots are for guild use. Contact an officer regarding withdrawing any items from this tab.
-Members are not required to deposit Money in the guild bank; however donations will be gladly accepted of any size to fund guild bank repairs and support guild related crafters.
