When you are in Insert Catchy Name Here and you wear our guild tag you become a representative of our guild. All of your choices and actions now affect the guild as well as yourself. As such, all of these rules must be followed to maintain membership. Please note that having Discord is a requirement for this guild.

The rules are listed in order of general rules followed by game specific rules. Please browse the rules carefully for any game you play with Insert Catchy Name Here as rules may vary from game to game.

General Rules for ICNH

  • It's preferred that you're at least 17 years of age to be in Insert Catchy Name Here.
  • It is encouraged that all members be on Discord whenever they are online.
  • A headset is required to be in TS. No exceptions. Not having a headset will result in a global mute until you get one. Any headset will do - it doesn't need to be a headset with a microphone, we just don't want to hear ourselves or your game sounds when you talk in TS.
  • No trolling or acting out in public channels. You give the guild a bad name, you are gone.
  • Be respectful to every member of the guild - regardless of feeling towards them.
  • Don't be a greedy bitch about crafting. Help out guildies and don't charge if they provide mats. We're all here to help each other.
  • Do not constantly AFK and only leave guild groups if it's an emergency.
  • If there are any issues, take it to an officer, don't bicker in public channels or guild chat.
  • There will be no harassment WHATSOEVER to members within ICNH or the public.
  • Treat others how you want to be treated.
  • No begging or mooching.
  • If you leave the guild you are done. This guild is not an emotionally unstable high school relationship. If you leave the guild in an emotional rage then you made your choice. We do not tolerate drama and rage gquits are still gquits and you will be done.
  • We're all here to have fun. If even 1 member is not having fun as a result of other members of the guild, there will be problems.

Being an offensive butthole will be the fastest way to get yourself removed from ICNH. Be smart about how you talk and act to your fellow members and officers and there will be no problems. If any problem should arise, take it to an officer or the guild leader to resolve it.

Discord Rules

  • All Discord names MUST be one of the following: in game name, real life name or a combination of the two.
  • Be Respectful / Do not be loud.
  • Headsets are REQUIRED - if you don't have one, you will be muted until you get one.
  • No racism or sexism is tolerated.
  • No whining. Do not spam (includes: phonetics, mic queuing, pages, joining / leaving channels).
  • Do not bother people in PvP or Dungeon channels. They are in those channels to not have to worry about general conversation while they do what they're tying to do.
  • Don't be a jerk. Plain and simple.


WoW Specific Rules

  • All ICNH General Rules & Discord specific rules apply.
  • Being on Discord is required for all guild runs - this includes, but is not limited to, Arenas, Battlegrounds, Dungeons, Raids, Challenges & Scenarios. Pretty much anything involving an organized party composed of at least a few.
  • All loot council decisions are final. We rotate out a member of the council every week to keep things unbiased and fair.
  • Due to how loot works in this expansion, all Bind on Equip (BOE) items are to go to the guild bank. Officers will determine whether or not the item will be better to be sold or go to someone. A 5 point temporary upgrade is not better than 500k to the Gbank, for example.
  • If you join a guild group, do not go AFK constantly - if you don't expect you'll be able to do the entire run you committed to, do not go.
  • Do not leave guild groups unless it's an emergency. Not getting the loot you wanted or "not needing this boss" does not mean you can come and go from a raid. You sign up and plan to attend, you attend the whole run - not just the parts that benefit you.
  • If you consistently under perform, expect to be replaced. That includes, but is not limited to, low DPS / HPS numbers, threat issues, and dying to mechanics repeatedly. It doesn't matter if you're a great person or friends with everyone in the guild, if you can't perform, you don't raid until you can.
  • Run as many guild groups as possible. This not only helps the guild bank earn funds, but it earns you guild rep, builds bonds with other members, and is a great way to make that boring heroic grind go faster!
  • Be on time to all organized and scheduled events, especially weekly planned raid times. If you are late a few minutes, you will be notified that you need to be on time better. Multiple times will get you removed and replaced from the group temporarily up to permanently depending on the number of occurrences. Special accommodations can be made if you have certain scheduling conflicts. Talk to Matt if you will consistently be a few minutes late to scheduled raids.
  • It is preferred that you are on Discord whenever you are online in-game. This is the quickest way to form groups and organize game time in other games.
  • If you have an issue or dispute with another member, work it out in private with each other. Do not get other members involved, but if you need to, let an officer or leader know there is a problem.
  • Do not repeatedly link items or loot in guild chat. Not everyone is as excited as you to get that new piece of gear. Don't gloat and link items only on occasion or if people ask to see a link to a certain item you have.
  • No linking damage or healing done in raid chat or guild chat. If someone wants to know, they can be whispered the meters or download the addons for themselves.
  • Come prepared to raids with food, potions and flasks. These will often be provided, but do not rely on them in case a provider is absent from a raid or a last minute raid happens and the mats aren't farmed yet.
  • Skype is allowed for all PvP groups - just make sure you're also logged in to Discord so someone can get a hold of you since you likely won't look at chat often.
  • Try not to be disruptive during organized events (such as raid bosses or RBGs / Arenas). Let the officers, raid leaders, or RBG leaders call out most stuff and only interrupt if you feel it's necessary for success of the group.
  • Donating to the guild bank is in no way required. We have repairs open to everyone in the guild and the more money we get in there, the more I can open up to everyone each day.
  • If funds become short, guild repairs will be temporarily locked to raiders and only on raid nights. This has never happened and I don't expect it to, but realize that without members contributing by donating or running guild groups, the bank will have no funds.

If anybody is seen breaking these rules in game or on Discord let an officer or admin know immediately.

Diablo 3 Rules

  • Be respectful to other member's privacy. If they are nice enough to give you their real ID, do not spread it around. Anyone caught disrespecting this right, will be held accountable for their actions.
  • Be respectful to other players.
  • No griping about loot. Loot is randomly handed out with the game. If someone is nice enough to swap loot with you, it is then their loot. Do not ask for it back, or do not give out your loot.
  • Have courtesy for someone else's campaign. If they would like to listen to every dialogue, they have that right. Do not mess someone else's campaign up for them.
  • Respect those who lead our guild groups.
  • You must sign up to be a part of our groups. Here is the link to do so.
  • Keep active on the forums because there is no clan support.
  • Have Fun!

We hold the right to add or remove rules as we see fit. All rules will be posted here.
There will be no unspoken rule.

Due to a few valid concerns I've decided to put a few restrictions on the Unofficial Playthrough forum. Don't worry about it too much, but we would like to make it fair to those who stay active on our forums. These rules will apply from now forward - not applying to those previously posted.

We hold the right to change these rules as the guild's needs change. Anyone caught in the act of violating these after I post them will risk losing their thread forever.

Website Only

  • In accordance with Google, we now have to watch for keywords, pictures, or videos that may trigger "Adult Ads" All posts (even if they are hilarious) will have to be deleted if they contain this content. Names of characters and usernames will also have to be renamed or deleted if they contain this
  • No signatures that are offensive or are larger than 500x200 pixels unless given special permission by an admin (you may be questioned by other admins about this if they were not informed)
  • No complete nudity. Nipples and genitalia must be covered. (suggestive photos are allowed)
  • No arguing with mods within the forums. If you have an issue you need to bring it up respectfully via pm to an admin or mod.
  • No advertising unless permitted. You will not be permitted unless you are staff or what you are creating will be dedicated to ICNH and our website. (Which means we will be mentioned on the program or in the credits of your creation).
  • No begging. No whining
  • No reposts or bumping.
  • Different forums have different standards: please make sure that you know what they are. You will be held accountable as if you read them, even if you did not. Our staff is happy to answer questions.
  • No unauthorized recreations of our forums or guild on games or another site.
  • No harassing people. If you are a victim of this, you need to contact a staff member.
  • Requests will be handled in order of being received. Do not pester the Staff.
  • You MUST state whether you are applying to be a member or an ally when joining the site. Members will be required to join the guild and adhere to the in-game rules as well as the online rules. Allies will only need to adhere to the online rules, but will not have the same privileges.
  • Allies will never be registered in vent. They will always be guests, so treat them well.
  • If you cannot post in a forum with your rank, you probably weren't meant to in the first place.
  • Be kind to others, and treat them how you would like to be treated.
  • Those who do not state their presence will be deleted from the site within 2 days. This means you must introduce yourself and state whether you are joining as a member or ally.

We hold the right to change these rules as the guild's needs change. Anyone caught in the act of violating these after I post them will risk losing their thread forever.

Guild Wars 2 Rules

  • Rank 10 is preferred if you intend to join the guild for PvP. Talk to me about your individual situations if you aren't rank 10 and are interested in PvP.
  • Be respectful to all guild members.
  • Drama will not be tolerated. If you have an issue with someone (or another guild) get an officer involved and work it out.
  • No racism or sexism allowed in TS or guild chat.
  • Guild chat is NOT trade chat. Do not spam with "WTB / WTS" excessively.
  • If you join a dungeon run and don't know what to do, ask for help. Don't cause a fail because you didn't ask for information ahead of time.
  • Do not leave a run early or AFK frequently or for extended periods of time. This is your first and last warning. If you see a guild member or officer leave a run early, let me or Court know.
  • Don't beg for things, but don't be afraid to ask for help.
  • Be logged on TS! All dungeon runs and PvP teams require Discord but we prefer all members to be in Discord whether or not they are running dungeons.
  • Do not flex your e-peen in Guild chat.
  • Do not tell people how to play. If someone is struggling ask if they need help or advice and if they don't, don't give it. If they fail, let an officer know.
  • Claiming keeps, towers, camps etc in WvW will be done by leaders and officers.
  • If you are given the Veteran Member rank, please state that all events you create are MEMBER-HOSTED EVENTS
  • Most importantly, have fun! It's a game, after all!

Multi-Guild policy

  • We prefer to have all members on Discord if you are online. This is to promote social interaction and form bonds within the guild. It's for your own benefit.
  • Discord is required for all guild dungeon runs and PvP teams. Even if you aren't running tourneys, please use TS for all PvP.

Guild Missions

Signing up
Guild missions will be listed on the event calender and all members are expected to sign-up using the website's sign-up function. Please be courteous and sign up to give others a sense of whether or not an event is happening. If people see an event with few sign-ups (or none) they are less inclined to log on in the first place because they may be under the assumption that the event isn't happening. So please, for your benefit and for everyone elses, sign up appropriately on the calender.

Even if you can't go, please sign up as a no instead of just not signing up at all. If it gets bad enough with sign-ups, we just won't take those who don't sign up.

Research
Members are expected to do their homework before attempting to run guild missions. The links to the walkthroughs and guides to ALL of the missions are posted on every single event page so there is no excuse to not know what to do. Members found repeatedly unaware of what the hell is going on will be excluded from missions.

Conduct
During missions, members should:
  • Sign up and be on time for the event both on Discord and in game
  • Pay attention to people running the events
  • Cease random chatter in Discord
  • Help with all aspects of missions even those without personal rewards
  • Pull their own weight
  • Stay for the duration of the missions

During missions, members should NOT:
  • Show up late or even worse sign up and not show up
  • Talk over others in TS (especially with random crap that isn't relevant to the mission)
  • Slack off
  • Wait in Lions Arch while the rest of the guild is out doing Trek or searching for Bounty NPCs
  • Leave in the middle of the missions unless it's an emergency.

We will treat AFKing and abandoning the guild in missions the same way we treat those behaviors in dungeons. It's absolutely unacceptable and will result in disciplinary action ranging from being excluded from future events, demotions, and even dismissal from the guild. All other guild rules apply while doing guild missions.
