Sorry for the delay, things have been rather chaotic lately.

Welcome [army], to the alliance. Leader: Alfa.
Everyone should know that by now, and if not, shame on you =P

Two members have been kicked from Phi. I will not elaborate in much detail as to who or why. I would like to take the oppurtunity to remind you that the following is not encouraged in the alliance:

- The distribution of images or videos containing hentai, [Warning. Following small text contains details.] funtari (various genatalia involved in/around/on one person), coprophilia (feces), and other inappropriate images - random porn basically, or other crude and disgusting gory images that are not suitable for 15/16 year olds. If you're a sick pervert and insist on doing it, send them to someone like you and through pm please. This is expressly forbidden in the alliance. Don't describe it verbally, typed, or through images. Please.

- Racism, sexism, etc - further insults towards people. It does not matter if they are said in jest. In guild chat players are known and jokes are tolerated - or can be stemmed easily. In alliance chat and among other guilds things easy are easily taken out of context. This is a commonly known fact. Players know that if they can shut up, Ignore, turn off Chat or leave the arguement dissipates completely. It's an Officer's or GL's problem then.

- Insulting people's dead family members. Not that good an idea. Or even living ones. A name with 'Childporn' in it is obviously going to offend a member with children. Or without.

- If you're asked to stop, particularly by any officer or guild leader, there is a reason for it. So please stop. There's no reason for you to randomly insult them because you 'want to be mean'. There is no reason for to tell others that a player is a GL (pretending to be me for instance) or an Officer.

Together those two players have been warned at least 9 times (5 in Mumble, 4 online) about their inappropriate behaviour. About 8 of those were by issued by me in the form of an informal request, a conversation, pulling them aside to chat and to ask to please stop doing these things.

I am not anyones mother but this is a community of generally dignified players who want to play and have fun instead of pass around perversion and insult one another. If we all behave there need not be anything to complain about. Simple. Be nice. That's what it boils down to. If you can't be nice, you don't belong here, seriously XD I'm fed up of telling people off and giving them about a zillion 'chances'. No one knows the full story, and I have definitely given these two more than a second chance. But no, more people get insulted, and some great members have LEFT because they, too, were fed up.

So, new rule for the Phi guild: members who don't change the way they behave after the third major incident will be kicked. Sorry it comes to this =( If someone actually wanted to change, they wouldn't need more than one warning. That is also why other members involved in yesterday's arguement remain in the alliance, while 'these two' do not.

You two, goodbye and goodluck. I really hope you find somewhere where you are readily accepted by everyone wholeheartedly.

To the rest of the alliance: It's a pleasure knowing you, and I am quite glad to share this alliance with you.

- Tabs [Phi]

Nice Essay.

I am sure you have everyone's support on this one. The members in question were given every opportunity to stay by you and everyone else in the Phi guild. I also think that it is a good idea to lessen the amount of chances people will get in the future.

Unfortunately, when many people log into a video game or other online communities they leave their normal manners and respect behind. It's important to realize that every person we interact with online is a real person, of varying age, race, gender, etc. So if you are talking to people you don't know, (which is likely to happen in alliance chat) make sure it is appropriate for everyone, if you're in a guild with people you know or in a team with good friends then use your judgment and you should be fine.

Also stealing in a game is not cool, if you borrow something from someone do your best to pay them back on time.

Ah, just have one more thing. Elitism is also not cool. Just because you have every title and every item in the game and 10,000 hrs of game play doesn't mean its cool to make fun of other peoples. Once again just know your audience. I don't call strangers newbs, but I try to let my friends know that they are once in a while (because they know I'm joking around and don't care how good or bad they are). Smile

I know we have nearly 100 members in [Phi] and many more around the alliance so 99% of this alliance I really enjoy playing with and will see you all around.

12345678910-- Now I too have written an essay, I've been working on a history project for 2 days and I got more text in this post than on that paper...so back to the history books I go. Sad

And let it be known that if you do end up recieving an "out-pass" from a guild, you may not be welcomed back into any guild in the alliance depending on your indiscretions.
