Code of Conduct

Organizations and Affiliations

To maintain membership or to be an affiliate at the SGC, the following requirements apply:

  • Must have no affiliations or ties to un-lawful organizations, pirate orgs
  • Must not have any redacted memberships or affiliations
  • Must not have hidden affiliations
  • Must not be affiliated with any org that is not friendly with SGC

Additionally, to be a full member of SGC, you must also list SGC (STARGATE) as your primary org on the RSI website / Spectrum.

If you are affiliated with SGC and have an affiliation or membership with another organization, and that organization or any of its members attacks an SGC member for any reason, your status with SGC will be frozen immediately and may be terminated following a hearing.  If one of your affiliations formally declares war on SGC, your status will be terminated immediately.

Communications and Interaction

Keep Comms Clean

SGC is a clean, family friendly gaming community with a wide variety of age groups and background. The list below describes communication that is prohibited in all communication channels within the SGC:

  • Hate speech, racism and other discriminatory language
  • Obscene or sexually explicit banter or content
  • Vulgar language, excessive cussing
  • Threats or harassment of any kind
  • Bullying of any kind
  • Continued commenting on religion, politics, race, skin color or sexual preferences

Offenses in this regard may result in being removed from our communication channels either temporarily or permanently.  Excessive or frequent offenses may also result in termination from the organization.

Sexual Harassment Statement

Additionally, under no circumstances will Sexual Harassment be tolerated. No warnings will be issued for any kind of sexual harassment – this will be a terminal offence.  These offenses may include:

  • Unnecessary familiarity, suggestive comments or jokes
  • Insults or taunts of a sexual nature
  • Intrusive questions or statements about your private life
  • Sending sexually explicit emails or text messages
  • Inappropriate advances on social networking sites
  • Requests for sex or repeated unwanted requests to go out on dates
  • Posting of any pornographic images, videos, discussions or narratives in any communication channel
  • Behavior that may be considered an offense under criminal law, such as indecent exposure, stalking or obscene communications

Please report such offenses promptly.  If you encounter another member being abusive towards you or towards others, please let us know by directly messaging us or submitting a grievance on the website. Reports are reviewed by our senior staff who will take appropriate action.

Use of Discord

Keep all conversations family friendly at all times. If what you want to say should not be said in front of a family with children, it should not be said in our Discord server.

No spamming the discord channels with messages.  No arguments or debates are permitted in text or voice channels.  If you have a problem with someone, work it out in private.  Do not continue arguments in front of others.  Excessive drama will result in being kicked or banned.

Remember that it takes at least two people to argue, which means both sides of an issue are responsible for diffusing volatile situations.  Every member is expected to handle themselves with courtesy and a level of maturity at all times.

Both the “general_chat” channel and the “welcome” channel on Discord are visible to everyone – conduct within this channel must be carried out as if it was in a public place. If it’s unacceptable to be said aloud in public with families around, then it’s unacceptable here.  No confidential conversations may be handled in these channels.

Teamspeak

The Teamspeak server is used for active missions and in-game operations.  All communication in Teamspeak must be handled professionally according to the guidelines within our communication SOP (Standard Operating Protocol).  You will find the SOP in our policy documentation.  Failure to do so will result in being kicked or banned from the Teamspeak server, and thus may impact your ability to engage in active missions.

In-Game Comms

Keep any in-game comms civilized with all gamers, especially with opposing players. While good natured banter is fine, abuse and insults are not.

 

In-Game Play

Cheating

Cheating of any kind, including hacking, exploits, scripting code, or use of macros, will not be tolerated.  If anyone is caught cheating, this is ground for immediate termination from the organization.

Organizational Interaction Responsibilities

Each member of SGC has the responsibility to look out for their fellow members, regardless of rank or formal responsibilities.  Each member is expected to be helpful toward others and support them in-game.  All of our actions effect other members and can impact the reputation of SGC – which impacts all its members.

The following are expectations for all members of SGC

  • Be logged into Discord or Team Speak when playing if at all possible
  • Maintain an active presence in-game
  • Follow the instructions of those taking the lead in missions, events and operations
  • Follow the chain of command
  • Adhere to the Code of Conduct at all times
  • Conduct themselves in an honorable and sportsmanlike fashion
  • Maintain dignified communications with both members and non-members
  • Maintain professionalism in comm channels
  • Project a positive image of yourself and of SGC to others
  • Support your org-mates
  • Attempt to resolve personal differences directly with the concerned individual(s)
  • Remind other members of expected conduct in a tactful, non- threatening way
  • Promote fellowship within the gaming community
  • Never condemn or humiliate other org members
  • Bring all problems, concerns, and issues to SGC officers for discussion and remediation

The following list of actions may result in termination from SGC:

  1. Team Killing
  2. Purposeful team damage
  3. Insurrection or defiance, especially during missions
  4. Excessive trolling and grieving that brings disrepute to SGC

Departments, Roles and Responsibilities

While we work towards creating an enjoyable game experience for all members, the structure of the organization is in place to ensure the survival and growth of the entire group.  The structure allows for a wide variety of gameplay activity resulting in plenty of opportunities for all to focus on their areas of preference while contributing to the organization’s success.

Why do we want to build an organization?  Playing a game of this magnitude can leave individual players without options:

  • Minimal Ships and Equipment?
  • Scarcity of Resources?
  • Difficulty Surviving Without Protection?
  • Challenging to Amass any Significant Wealth?
  • No Collaborative Missions?
  • Lack of Learning Opportunities?
  • Lack of Support for Game Play and Issues?

Probably not in a solid organization.  These problems will only disappear if we have enough structure to provide benefits to all contributing members.

Survival is not enough, we are here to thrive in game.  Growth cannot happen if we don’t actively contribute and do our individual part.  If we have accepted a particular role or responsibility, it is expected that we will live up to our agreement.  If you are unhappy with your role or responsibilities, you need to actively engage an officer who can help and point you in the right direction, preferably your immediate officer.

Each member must contribute to the success of the organization in order to maintain long term membership.  This means active engagement and regular presence in game, and directly contributing to the department, role or set of responsibilities that the member has signed up for.  Each member has the freedom to request the area of the organization most interesting to them and to apply to any open jobs published by the Citizen Services department.  It’s best to have multiple options in mind when considering a change to ensure the best chance of finding openings that work for you.

Competitive Events

The SGC Admins and Coordinators will make the final decisions about official SGC participation in any sponsored competitive events and teams.

 

Real Life Comes First

Video games should never come before real life. However, prior notice of any prolonged absence is greatly appreciated, and mandatory for those serving as officers.
