Only the Raid Officer, Alt Raid Officer, Achievement officer or the Events Officer are allowed to schedule guild activities. We encourage members to get together and dungeon, raid and socialize. However, scheduled guild raids, guild achievement runs and guild events are to be approved by the appropriate officer so as to not interfere with other scheduled events.
Proper lines of disciplinary action will be taken against guild members found in violation, in part or whole.
Issues that result in immediate expulsion:
2. Blatant disrespect for the guild, its officers, or its members.
3. Purposely and intentionally ninja-ing loot.
Issues that result in immediate action (three-strike policy):
1. Do not speak ill of other guilds or players in public areas. We have respect for all players in the World of Warcraft, unless they are truly terrible people. Refrain from doing anything that would cause inter-guild drama or reflect poorly on Gears of Warcraft, no matter how much you might hate someone. Speak with an Officer / GM, and we will work to rectify the issue.
2. Knowingly taking from the guild bank items that are not intended for your toon that is currently a member of the guild. Taking and selling items from the Guild Bank.
