Hello members, listeners, and friends.
I first want to apologize. I have been absent and out of touch with Heroes of Lordaeron for way too long. I fear that this absence has led to some of the problems that have happened.
For all of the guilds this site services, from Heroes of Lordaeron to Cairnes Legacy, and even to Heroes of Alderaan, these following statements apply.
First, all of these guilds will have a membership of show listeners, and on occasion their friends or family. If the person is not a listener, the person who invites them is responsible for the actions of that person. If they are family or friend of the inviting person, the inviting person will be responsible for their actions. If there are problems, the inviting person will be spoken to and be expected to speak to the member. If this resolves nothing, then extreme measures may be required.
If they are not a friend or family, the person being asked to invite should be verifying that the person is a listener of one of the Dawnforge shows. These guilds are not, and will not, be open membership guilds. We do not do public recruiting, but instead recruit through the audience of the podcasts.
Second, there needs to be some clarity on what one can or cannot expect as a member. Each member should be treated with respect, and should treat others with respect. As such, any so called ‘hot button’ issues like Religion, Politics, etc, should be kept out of guild chat. Also, this includes anything that might be considered personal or otherwise has potential to make a member feel uncomfortable. Be respectful of other people including respect for their sexual orientation and race.
Any official guild event is open to all members. Official guild events are one that are planned by Medros. Those that choose to attend are expected to conduct themselves respectfully while attending the event.
Those are the only expectations you should have of other members of the guild. Many of our members are very generous with their time, resources, and advice. This is a gift, which should be accepted gratefully. One should not take this for granted.
If a member of the guild is planning a dungeon run, a series of runs, a battleground event, an Arena team, a raid night, or any other event other than an official guild event, the planner or those they choose have the sole discretion over what is required.
If the person doing the planning of an RP event feels that a female toon in Black Mageweave set is not appropriate for the event, they have the right to tell the player make a different choice of attire before attending the event. If the planner of a raid night decides that no PvP gear will be accepted, that is the planner’s choice. Any complaints about feeling harassed about being asked to make a more appropriate clothing or gear choice in order to attend an event will be responded to with the following: “Report it to a GM”.
Third, and lastly. Every member, of each of these guilds, can be viewed as a representation of more than just themselves. They also represent their guild, and the people in it. They are an example of the what the rest of the guild is like. These guilds are connected to several of the Dawnforge podcasts. Therefore, the behavior you choose to exhibit with your toon also represents the values of the Dawnforge network. Any member who is found to be rude, crass, vulgar, or otherwise violating basic rules of civility will be given one warning. Any further breaches will result in demotion and/or removal from the guild. Please note, by remaining in this guild, you accept these terms. Starting with the posting of this on the site, all past wrongs are wiped clean. Everyone has a clean slate as of this day.
Thank you all for being members of the three guilds that make up this group, and which support the Dawnforge podcasts. On behalf of the officers of these guilds and staff of Dawnforge, we look forward to many fun adventures with you, today, and in the future.
