2018 KUMPANIA GUILD GUIDELINES:
Welcome to the Kumpania family! We hope you are proud to be a member of the oldest Guild on the entire Turalyon server and the 4th oldest active Guild on any United States server as we enter our 12th year~! 12 YEARS~! So by wearing the tabard and colors of Kumpania you are now a big part of the rich history of players and experiences in both Kumpania and World of Warcraft as the game celebrates 12 years. It is the responsibility of every member to ensure that this tradition continues. To this end, we have developed a few guidelines over the years that we would like you to read, understand and sign off on for the upcoming year of 2018.
INTENT of GUIDELINES:
The volume of these guidelines is relatively small, as is their impact on your day to day life within Kumpania. This is totally by design. Kumpania itself derived from the Gypsy words indicating a traveling group of people who are together for mutual benefit, (whom may or may not be family), and this is truly the spirit of Kumpania itself. You will not find pressure here to conform to any particular play style, level of performance, attendance, or participation. We are a Guild Family that is a haven for those who wish to enjoy World of Warcraft on their own terms, drama free, with people that they enjoy spending time with as they are able.
We encourage all of our members to behave in a positive fashion with the other players they interact with in game and in our Guild chat. Treat others as you wish to be treated and behave in a fashion that you would like to see in the people that you group and spend time with. Members who behave in abusive manner or who are antagonistic in Guild, General, or Trade chats will be removed from the guild. Kumpania has a very strict no drama policy~! Kumpania has an excellent reputation for respectful and skilled players on this and other servers and you must carry yourself accordingly.
MINIMUM AGE FOR KUMPANIA:
We request that you be at least "18" years of age to apply to Kumpania. Our Guild chat can be "mature" at times and we do not wish to offend any younger players. If you are the Son or Daughter of a current Adult Member of Kumpania this policy can be waived on a case by case bases. Please consult any Officer if you have any questions on this or any Guideline. For our CURRENT Members this does not affect your status.
ADVANCEMENT in KUMPANIA:
After an approximately (30) day "Applicant" probationary period further promotions within Kumpania are based on many factors. This does not mean that you must be constantly talkative and outgoing in chat or that if you are not in the right cliques that you will not get a promotion. What it simply means is that as we, the Guild Officers and Staff, get to know the players through either direct interaction or observation we then base promotions on how well we feel people ‘fit’ into Kumpania and also on longevity of membership in Kumpania. These are fairly subjective measuring tools we understand~! No promotions or ALT invitations will be made until the player has read and /signed the 2018' Guild Guidelines. If you apply to Kumpania, play a few weeks then go away for a few weeks, that's fine... however your Applicant phase may take longer than 30 days for us to evaluate. This is on a case by case bases.
GUILD MEMBER ISSUES:
We understand that Kumpania may not be the best "fit" for everyone, and that people’s playing expectations may change over time. While we encourage our players to help enrich the Kumpania community by sharing their interests, if members feel like they would like to pursue membership with another Guild or on another server we understand and wish everyone the best of luck. We do however ask that as these situations arise, that contact is made with a Guild Officer or Staff Officer to indicate the desire to remove a toon from Kumpania. These requests will never be denied, the contact is simply a courtesy to help us manage the roster and pass along good references where possible. Failure to contact a Guild Officer or Staff Officer PRIOR to leaving can result in the removal of other toons or the withdrawal of potential re-invitation should players choose to return to Kumpania.
The all new Kumpania website is where you can keep informed about all the happenings, raids, PvP, old content nights, Guild Meetings and messages from your Officers and Staff. We encourage you to come to this site often, know what's going on and be active and informed. We like to say in Kumpania, "You will get out of this Guild what you put into this Guild". So please use this website often and add your own threads and posts and learn about all the fun things, the new Members and areas of interest you may have. This is YOUR GUILD, so participate! Many of our members' usernames on the site are different from their main character's name in the guild. We ask that you include your main character's name on any post you make so other members can know who is posting what.
PLEASE USE YOUR MAIN TOONS NAME WHEN YOU POST ON THE FORUMS AND WHEN YOU /sign THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THESE GUILD GUIDELINES~! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT~!
DISCORD (Voice program replacing Vent) EXPECTATIONS:
Our Discord server lobby is considered ‘PG’ rated in terms of content. To discuss more graphic topics or use coarser language we ask that you utilize one of the many private or raid rooms in our Discord server. We also ask that if you are running an instance or raid that you and your group make use of one of the raid channels or the arena channel. We are NOT prudes in Kumpania but we do have younger members and our Lobby must remain "PG"! You are free to use any language, within reason, in any other channel. We DO NOT allow racial slurs or the making of derogatory comments about disabilities or sexual orientation in Kumpania~! Political issues should be discussed in private /whispers or in a closed Discord channel.
