Basic Behavioral Standards and General Policy
Last updated 5-20-2023
1. All guild members are expected to be respectful, polite and professional when dealing with other members of the guild and the server community at large. Never do anything that would put the guild’s name in disrepute. Rank should also never factor into how you treat someone. 2. Certain topics should never be brought up on the guild discord or in general chat in game which include but are not limited to Sexual Content, Political Talk of any kind, Jokes insulting other members, Racism and Religion. These subjects have a nasty habit of bringing out the worst in people and can cause strife within the guild and make people feel unwanted or uncomfortable. The idea of the Brigade of Honor is to ensure that all members from different walks of life and backgrounds feel welcome here. No one is better than anyone else and we thrive off this notion. 3. Officers are appointed based upon experience, ability, and trustworthiness over time. While officers and non commissioned officers have authority over other guild members, they are not “superior” to other members and should not be considered as such. The officers are subject to the same rules as other members. 4. Any officer caught abusing members or their authority will be disciplined severely which can include but is not limited to demotion , suspension or possibly even removal from the guild. 5. Officers and Non Commissioned officers have the right and authority to issue instructions, directives and “orders” to lower ranking members of the guild. Failure to obey instructions can and may result in demotion , suspension and or removal of membership from the guild. A order that is illegal, unethical or outside the authority of the person giving it does not need to be obeyed. 6. The Discussion of mods and or addons or anything not formally approved by square enix is not allowed on the discord or facebook channel. This is not done to be mean but to protect all members and prevents any misunderstanding as some people equate mods or addons with cheating and we have a reputation to protect. 7. All members should make a honest effort to use the guild discord everytime they are logged into ffxiv but the discord is now MANDATORY during anytime you are attending a guild event. I pay over 100 dollars a month on the discord every month to give us all the perks, Please use it. 8. The Brigade of Honor Guild offers access to many different servers for popular games, the primary purpose of which is not to replace the guild’s main mmorpg game but rather to prevent burnout from playing only one game. One should never underestimate the power of gaming genre diversity when playing games. That being said members are REQUIRED to ensure that playing on the servers we provide does NOT interfere with their primary mmorpg duties as failure to adhere to rule may result in a members loss of benefits and perks. The Brigade of Honor Management has at its sole discretion the right to determine what constitutes interference with ones duties.

1. All members need to be reasonably active both in game and on the discord in addition to signing the guild monthly roll call once per month in the designated channel, in order to qualify as active for that month. The member will need to sign again once the roll call resets for the next month. 2. PVE events and PVP Raids have set times that usually can’t be delayed or postponed so if you can’t attend a event make sure you inform your immediate commanding officer so someone is aware of your absence. If they are not available keep going one rank up the chain of command until you contact someone who is available. 3. Generally speaking the higher in rank you become in the guild the more of your free time will be asked of you. As always real life comes first and you should not endanger your marriage , course work or family obligations. So ensure you have adequate time before you accept a promotion or take on more responsibility in this organization. 4. If a member is receiving paid time cards and cd keys that member should do everything in their power to stay active and not abuse the trust placed in them by receiving such perks.
