The Deadly Code

Date of Approval: May 4, 2016

Preamble

Purpose
This document is intended to be a comprehensive list of rules and guidelines for all members of the Deadly Gaming clan. This includes officers, standard members, and recruits. The rules below provide the standards of conduct expected from all members of the Deadly Gaming clan while communicating and playing with both clan members and people outside of the clan. A list of links used in this document will also be provided in the next section to give the reader quick access to any guidelines and tutorials that provide valuable information not covered in this document. Take note that enforcement of some rules below will be subject to the discretion of the officers of Deadly Gaming and have been labeled as such. The amount of rules enforced at the officers’ discretion may be changed in the future as new situations arise. Once that happens, this document will be edited to reflect the change.

Article 1: General Code of Conduct

Section 1: Rule Adherence
All members are required to follow the rules outlined in this document. Failure to do so negatively affects the reputation of not only the clan member but also the clan as a whole. All penalties to these rules will be outlined in Article 3.

Section 2: Accountability
All members will be held accountable for their actions. This means that they will truthfully acknowledge and explain their actions and decisions when requested without deception.

Section 3: Activity
All members are expected to be active on the clan’s forums at http://www.deadlygaming.com/forum/. Being active is defined as logging in at least once a month on the forums. The exception to this rule will be outlined in Article 3, Section 1.1.

Section 4: TeamSpeak
All members are required to install and use TeamSpeak, available at http://www.teamspeak.com/downloads. Instructions to set up TeamSpeak are available here: http://www.deadlygam...p-instructions/. The exception to this rule will be outlined in Article 3, Section 1.2. Take note that members are expected to be on TeamSpeak if they play in game servers owned by Deadly Gaming with other clan members. Use of TeamSpeak is otherwise optional, and enforcement of this rule will be up to the discretion of Deadly Gaming’s officers.

Section 5: General Conduct
Members should take note that the enforcement of many of the rules below are subject to the officers’ discretion. For example, underage applicants may be accepted if others consider them to be mature enough. This is one out of many possible scenarios that exist. Members and officers are advised to use their best judgment when deciding what is or is not acceptable.
5.1: All members are expected to be mature. Take note that the recommended minimum age of recruitment acceptance is 16.
5.2: All members will obey any order from a superior officer as long as that order does not come in direct conflict with any rules or regulations set forth by Deadly Gaming.
5.3: All members must refrain from using vulgar nicknames on the forums, in TeamSpeak, and in-game.
5.4: All members are expected to wear the Deadly Gaming tags whenever possible.
5.5: All members are expected to be accurate and truthful in all matters.
5.6: All members are expected to treat those in and outside of Deadly Gaming in a respectful manner.
5.7: All members must use caution when being disrespectful in jest. If another person requests the member(s) to stop, the member(s) must do so immediately.
5.8: All members will refrain from any and all forms of prejudice, harassment, and doxing of those in and outside of Deadly Gaming.
5.9: All members should take note that the solicitation for the acquisition of money or games from other members of Deadly Gaming is strictly forbidden.
5.10: All members should take extra care to conduct themselves in a respectful and dignified manner when wearing the Deadly Gaming tags and shall not use language that may disrespect or discriminate against other people.

5.13: All members will refrain from discussing their warning logs or engaging in extended discussion of any locked or deleted forum threads.
5.14: All members will refrain from impersonating another person.
5.15: All members should respect the privacy of others. This means no posting contents of private messages or external private forums without evidence of consent from all people involved in the private communications. The exception to this rule will be outlined in Article 3, Section 2.1.
5.16: All members will refrain from sharing account access with banned members.

Section 6: Hacking and Tampering
6.1: Hacking and tampering with clan resources will not be tolerated in Deadly Gaming. Take note that VAC bans on Steam less than or equal to 548 days (a year and a half) may be grounds for automatic refusal of a recruit’s application to join Deadly Gaming.
6.2: All members are obligated to report instances of hacking on Deadly Gaming’s servers if no prior report exists. The report should be addressed to an officer and consist of a video clip of the hacker being spectated, a general description, and a list of all clan members playing at the time.
6.3: All members will refrain from hacking on Deadly Gaming’s servers and servers owned by others.
6.4: All members will refrain from attempting to gain or fully gaining inappropriate access to Deadly Gaming’s resources including but not limited to servers, forums, websites, social media, etc.

6.6: All members who unexpectedly and accidentally gain inappropriate access to Deadly Gaming’s resources must notify an officer immediately to fix the security hole.

Section 7: Multiple Clans
7.1: All members are to refrain from joining another clan while simultaneously being a member of Deadly Gaming. This practice is called “multi-clanning”.
7.2: All members who choose to join another clan must forfeit membership of Deadly Gaming and inform their commanding and/or executive officers of the decision to join another clan.
7.3: All departed members are still welcome to use Deadly Gaming’s forums and TeamSpeak servers as long as they refrain from using the Deadly Gaming tags and continue following the rules of the forums and servers.
7.4: All members are permitted to play in servers not belonging to Deadly Gaming. However, they must refrain from wearing the tags of the server owners.
7.5: All members are allowed to join a guild in a massively multiplayer online (MMO) game in which Deadly Gaming does not have an active following. However, said guild cannot have an active community outside the in-game guild in which the member would be held back from his or her duties at Deadly Gaming. If members are unsure about whether or not membership in another gaming group would lead to multi-clanning, they are advised to ask Deadly Gaming’s officers for clarification. It is up to the officers to decide whether or not membership in another gaming group would constitute multi-clanning.

Section 8: Contacting Officers
8.1: Though all members are expected to handle conflicts themselves, officers are available to help control the situation if they cannot be resolved by standard members. In these instances, the members should contact the officers in the Human Resources division.
8.2: If a member feels that an officer is abusing his or her power, that member is advised to contact a higher-ranking officer who will begin investigating the officer in question.
8.3: All members should refrain from contacting any officers who are on leave. The list of officers and other members on leave can be found in the clan roster located here: http://www.deadlygam...age/Clan Roster
8.4: Anonymous reports to officers can be done using this form: https://docs.google....LaIWgE/viewform

Section 11: Member Departures and Returns and Officer Resignations
11.1: Any member may leave Deadly Gaming at any time for whatever reason. The community and/or commanding officers of the member in question must be informed on the forums of the departure. Otherwise, the member may be kept on the roster until (s)he is kicked for inactivity which constitutes a violation of the activity rule in Article 1, Section 3. See Article 2, Section 1.1 and Article 3, Section 1.1 for penalties regarding inactivity. All members who leave do so with the knowledge that they will not be able to return at the rank they had at the time of their departure.
11.2: Departures in accordance with the rule in Article 1, Section 11.1 will be considered voluntary departures on good terms.

1.3: A member committing one or more of the violations outlined in Article 2, Sections 1.3 through 1.8 inclusive will be penalized with revocation of membership in Deadly Gaming after being confronted by officers and shown evidence of the violation(s). However, the accused member has the right to dispute the evidence.
