[MoP] Charter: Guild structure and organisation

Postby Nanuviel » Mon Sep 24, 2012 8:12 pm

Seventh Flight is an EU Argent Dawn raiding and social guild. The main goal of the SeventhFlight raid force is to raid 25-man instances, three times a week. We also have a social branch, which welcomes members across all playstyles, as long as they behave in a manner befitting of the <Seventh Flight> tag.

The following "rank" distinctions are found in Seventh Flight:
  • Senate, the people organising the guild and raids.
  • Members, the members of the Seventh Flight raid force. The corresponding guild rank is Dragonslayer.
  • Provisional Member, a new addition to the raid force, usually lasting between 1-2 months. Guild rank: Murlocslayer
  • Social Raider, members of the SF Guild and Forum, with raiding privileges.
  • Social Members, members of the SF Guild and Forum, without raiding privileges.
  • Recruits, members of the SF guild who are in the process of applying for social or full membership.

All of these roles will be explained in detail below. Any privileges explained will apply to the given rank, and ranks listed above it.

The Senate
The senate is composed of a number of officers (previously classleads) and our current raidleads. The senate is tasked with the day-to-day running of SeventhFlight, including handling recruitment, managing the bank, organising raids, and enforcing the SeventhFlight ruleset.

The senate is also responsible for drafting new rules for the community, either based on senate observation or member requests. Major rule changes (such as adding new membership requirements, changing the loot system, etc) will be put up in Tribus for discussion before they go into effect. Minor rule or policy changes (such as changing applicant gear requirements) are done on an assumed-correct basis (although they can of course be discussed after the fact).

Apart from additional responsibilities, the Senate enjoys no benefit not already available for Seventh Flight raiders.

Dragonslayer
Dragonslayers are the members of the Seventh Flight 25-man dungeon raiding team. These people have access to the guild bank threads for requesting of raid access materials, can sign up for a spot in raids, and are in the loot system. We aim for the Dragonslayers group (which includes the Senate) to be at most 38 people in order to not overpopulate the community. Depending on attendance and current applicants, the actual number may be lower at times.

Dragonslayers Responsibilities
  • Sign up for raids. You must do this. For details on the raid signup process, see Raid Organisation
  • Ensure you have Mumble, Addons, etc as detailed in the Applicant Checklist
  • Maintain a 2/3 attendance, averaged on a monthly basis.
  • Arrive for raids on-time, repaired and with reagents
  • Maintain a positive balance with the Guild Bank, w.r.t. for example flasks
  • On a weekly basis, read the mandatory reading forums of Tribus, Recruitment and Raiding (for tactics).
  • Inform us as soon as you know of some future event that impacts your attendance, in your Attendance thread

Dragonslayers Rights
Assuming that a raider has fulfilled all of their responsibilities, they have the following rights. If a raider misses to fulfil one or more responsibility (either intentionally or accidentally), they may lose some or all of these rights either as specified below or, in the case of grave transgressions, on a case-by-case basis
  • Raiding privileges (a spot in raids, or Halo rotation if none are available)
  • Loot privileges (listed in the loot lists, earn points for raids)
  • Provide feedback on recruitment, including raising an objection to an applicant

Dragonslayers Code of Conduct
Apart from the day-to-day responsibilities listed above, raiders have the additional obligations below (in addition to the Social Member ones)
  • Ignoring a fellow guildmember, Dragonslayer or Senate member is a no-go. If you have an issue with another member, please try resolving it either directly or via senate intervention. Raiding is about teamwork.
  • If you plan to apply to another community (we won't like that, but it can happen, for RL friends or whatever) inform us a week before you actually do. We won't kick you if you tell us, but if you just pack up and leave we won't let you back.

Vacations and Inactivity
  • Should you be gone for any period of time, post about it in your attendance thread.
  • Any member of this rank gone (no or minimal attendance) for more than four weeks with or without notice will normally lose the rank and be moved to social raider.
  • Any member of this rank with less than 50% raid attendance over the past 2 months will normally lose the rank and be moved to social raider.
  • Any member of this rank falling below 2/3 raid attendance several times over the past 3 months will be asked to consider their commitment to raiding. If attendance doesn't pick up, the member will normally lose the rank and be moved to social raider.
  • After being moved to social raider the previous dragonslayer will be suicided every 4 weeks. After the 3rd suicide the member will be taken off our raid roster. Once off the roster the member will need to reapply on the forum.

Miscellaneous
  • When you raid, you apply with a character as your main. Changing this character is effectively re-applying.

Provisional Members
Provisional Members have the same duties, responsibilities and privileges as regular members, except they are not eligible to receive legendary items, and must pass their PM period and evaluation.

Social Raider
Social Raiders are the social members of the Seventh Flight Guild that may join our raids. They have a position in the loot system, and earn points for attending raids, but are not guaranteed a place in the raids. Social Raiders may hop in on a given night if there is space, and enjoy otherwise the same forum access as regular members. The rank is most often given to former Dragonslayers, but may occasionally be applied to Social Members. Becoming a Social Raider via application carries the same procedure as becoming a Dragonslayer (i.e. a very long PM period).

Social Raider Responsibilities
In addition, Social Raiders have the same responsibilities as all ranks below them (Social Members)
  • Ensure you have Mumble, Addons, etc as detailed in the Applicant Checklist
  • Arrive for raids repaired and with reagents
  • On a weekly basis, read the required forums (Tribus, Recruitment)

Social Raider Rights
Assuming that a social raider has fulfilled all of their responsibilities, they have the following rights. If a raider misses to fulfil one or more responsibility (either intentionally or accidentally), they may lose some or all of these rights either as specified in the thread detailing their responsibilities or, in the case of grave transgressions, on a case-by-case basis
  •  May attend raids (but is not guaranteed Halo rotation if no spots available)
  • Loot privileges (listed in the loot lists, earn points for raids)
  • Provide feedback on recruitment, including raising an objection to an applicant
  • Social raiders can become regular members if there is an available spot, and they pass a trial. Social raiders need not make a full application, merely state their intent.

Social Raider Code of Conduct
A social raider should conduct themselves like a Dragonslayer would.

Social Raider Removal
Social Raiders that do not continue and/or resume some form of raiding to keep up with gear progression may be moved to Social Member instead, to clean up the loot system. It is assumed that a Social Raider that no longer keeps up with progression is virtually a guest in the raids instead.

Social Member
Social Raiders are the members of the SeventhFlight guild and forums, here for the community, dungeons and unofficial raids. Social members merely have to abide to the Code of Conduct, and are therefore exempt from most active requirements, but have no access to the guild raiding resources. Social members need an application to attain Dragonslayer status.

Social Member Code of Conduct
Any member should conduct themselves worthy of the <Seventh Flight> tag. This means no ninjaing, no harrassment, no breaking the game rules (hacking, cheating, you know the drill) or any other behaviour that would sour the guild reputation.

Within the guild, the same rules as in RL apply. Behave, be nice, wash your hands after going to the toilet and all should be fine. A certain tolerance for profanity, dirty jokes and Atrysexuality is taken for granted as well. After all most of us have already lived through our good years and we ain't in kindergarden anymore.
