Personal Conduct

Don't end up in the Violet Hold!

Don’t end up in the Violet Hold!

As with all guilds, <Coram Populo> has certain standards and expectations of its members.  Most of these standards and expectations are simple and are things that players should already adhere to while in and out of the game.

The General Rule

As a general rule, please attempt to be respectful and mindful of those around you, including your guild mates, fellow role players, other players on Wyrmrest Accord and other servers, members of the World of Warcraft community at large, and your actions outside the game.

Behavior and Conduct

In addition, there are certain activities and behaviors that are not tolerated in <Coram Populo>.  Some of these activities and behaviors may include but are not limited to:

– Representing the guild in a manner that would (or could) potentially portray our members and what we stand for in a negative light or in a manner that is not an accurate reflection of who we are as a guild.

– Disrespecting or attacking other guild members in guild chat, party chat, through whispers, during guild events, or in any other way, shape or form.

– Lying, manipulating others, or using deceit (or attempting to do so) under any condition and/or in any circumstance during the course of your membership within the guild, regardless of the reason for doing so and regardless of the effect or consequences (or lack thereof) it has on the guild or its members.

– Using foul language consistently and/or in excess amounts (as determined by guild officials or officers).

– Using racial, ethnic, gender, age, sexual orientation-based, lifestyle-based, and/or religious slurs or inflammatory comments in any form of communication, whether in jest or not.

– Using slurs, verbiage or language that could be considered offensive or insensitive by those around you or to the community at large.

– Harassing or provoking other guild members of the community at large into arguments or antagonistic situations.

– Engaging in or using excessive sexually explicit language or behavior in a public setting (including role play).

– Creating (or attempting to create) a hostile work environment.

– Creating (or attempting to create) a hostile guild environment.

– Creating (or attempting to create) a negative atmosphere within the guild or community at large.

– Selling (or attempting to sell or solicit) gold or other services and products for real life money or currency.

– Inciting or promoting (or attempting to incite or promote) illegal activity, violence, or other activities that violate local, state or federal law.

– Promoting, advertising or participating in (or attempting to do so) anything that is against the TOS of World of Warcraft.

Public Chat Channels

Members of <Coram Populo> are expected to promote a positive role play experience for the guild, its member, the role play community at large and the population on Wyrmrest Accord.

Excessive use of inappropriate language or any harassment of other individuals, role players, guilds or people in public chat channels shall not be tolerated.  This includes any area chat, General Chat, Trade Chat, Looking for Group, or spacial chat (including /say, /emote and /yell).  This also includes any and all IC, OOC, and IRL methods of communication as well as the World of Warcraft and other forums and websites.

Excessive spamming or advertising using any of the means or methods described above is also prohibited.

Most of this should be common sense to us, however it does need to be stated that we do not find “trolling” behavior to be acceptable conduct for guild members.

You always represent yourself as your character, your person and your guild when speaking or posting anything in public chat channels or for public display.

Of course, all guild members are expected to follow the World of Warcraft Terms of Use in addition to all other Blizzard Entertainment policies.
