Membership, Ongoing Qualification

Recommended Posts

South of Heaven is more than simply an in-game guild. We are a rich community that spans many games, and many years. While we do not expect everyone to participate in all Chapters, we believe it is important for Membership to carry with it certain on-going qualifications. This is done to insure that the guild atmosphere remains tightly knit, and also to recognize the fact that the guild's style and objectives change over time. The following guidelines apply:

1. Membership requires participation within an active Chapter, as well as regular contact with our community site.

2. If a member is not able to participate in an active Chapter, or has chosen not to, but otherwise remains in good standing, he or she will be retired according to the following schedule:

a)
Members or Senior Members
will be retired to Friend. Friends are always eligible to renew their Member status, following a two-week orientation period.

b)
Veterans or Founding Members
will be retired to Ghost. Ghosts may have their Veteran status re-instated, at the discretion of the Chapter Lead, following a two-week orientation period.

3. If a member has not logged into the community site for an extended period of time, they may forfeit their rank and access, according to the following schedule:

a)
Veterans or Founding Members
who have not visited the site within
90 days
will have their rank suspended and their access set to Ghost.

b)
Members or Senior Members
who have not visited the site within
90 days
will have their rank suspended and their access set to Friend.

c)
Allies, Friends or Ghosts
who have not visited the site within
360
days will have their access set to Guest.

d)
Guests or Strangers
who have not visited the site within
90
days, and who have a post count of less than
10
, will have their accounts deleted.

4. We prefer that members participate exclusively in South of Heaven chapters. However, membership in multiple guilds is acceptable, provided that it has no discernible, negative impact on the member's participation in an active Chapter. This is left to the discretion of the Chapter Lead.

Adopted by near-unanimous consent, as discussed here.

Please post any questions, suggestions, clarifications, or typos.

I will perform system maintenance on Sunday 9/26 which will put these changes into effect. Moving forward, ranks will be adjusted periodically according to the policy outlined above.

Maintenance complete; this resulted in about 120 moves.

Also purged an additional 128 users with less than 2 posts and no activity for 90 days (these are mostly bots that failed to get thru our security screening).

Also purged an additional 25 users who have been "awaiting e-mail confirmation" for 60 days (again, mostly bots).
