Guide to Everything has been altered to include recent changes to the General eval system. Generals are no longer allowed to positive/negative vote in phase 2, if they vote it must be a neutral 0 vote. In phase 1 members may now make a maximum of two posts containing questions for the evaluated, and one post stating their opinion on the evaluated. (This change will be explained in greater detail in the coming eval, so don't barrage me with questions about it plz and ty)

We should also keep track of the changes and rules that we add / modify as a result of the committee in here. Great idea @Terra!

The "Division Leader" Channel group in Teamspeak has been changed to "Division Moderator", along with all texts that refer to it in the Guide to Everything, to avoid any confusion with members granted it who are not actual Division Leaders of the Division.

An amendment was added to part "1.2 Upgrading a Squad to a Division" of the Divisions section to better clarify that Trial Members do not count towards a Squads total members when considering their eligibility to become a Division.

A new rule was established by the Generals today in regards to name changes, and has been added to the Clan section of the Guide to Everything, along with a new sub-section called "Additional Rules of Note" (as this particular rule didn't fit under any other categories).

 



5.0 Additional Rules of Note

A list of rules and practices that aren't part of the generic Clan rules but are still followed nonetheless.

 

5.1 Name Changes

Commanders have the power to change the OD names of members, and any Enlisted member may request a Commander to change their name. An Enlisted member may request one name change unconditionally, however future name change requests may be refused, so make sure it is changed to something you like. Indecisive people, you have been warned.

 

Once a member becomes a Warrant Officer or higher they are no longer applicable for name changes as their notoriety is considered too high and this leads to confusion in the community.

 

The sole exception is in rare occasions where particular circumstances actively prevent a member from using their original name in OD platforms that typically require it, such as a D2 account being locked out of battle.net, preventing them from using their OD name for the D2 Division. In such cases the member may petition for a name change and it will be judged on a case-by-case basis.

 

This rule actually reflects the common practice of name changes in OD over the course of previous years, it was only in this past year that a measure of leniency has been allowed for name changes. Given the increasing number of members requesting name changes lately, and the added level of confusion that it has been creating, the Generals have decided to formally instate the old restrictions of name changes as a rule of the Clan, starting today.

In accordance with the decisions made in the November 19 Admin Meeting, a section on the extra gaming channel for Divisions has been added under the Teamspeak part of the Guide under the Special Channels heading.

On 3/2/2017 at 12:46 AM, Terra said:

3.3 Division's Extra Game Channel

As of the November 19, 2017 Admin Meeting all Divisions are permitted to have a single channel (if they choose to) in their Teamspeak section in which their members can use to play other games besides the designated game of their Division as long as:

1. The game played is not an existing Squad already (in which case the Squad channels should be used instead)

2. The name of the channel isn't directly named after a game (it can be lobby, lounge, etc but not the actual name of a game), to avoid discouraging possible future attempts to make the game into a Squad

 

Only one channel is allowed for this per Division, if there are multiple games being played or the game requires separate lobbies, then temporary channels can be created as sub-channels of the extra gaming channel using the "Temporary Channel" setting when creating a Teamspeak channel. Any Warrant Officer or above should have the power to create temporary channels.
