Disciplinary Actions

Enforcement of these expectations is at the discretion of guild leadership. For most situations, it can be expected that a cordial verbal or written warning will be given. Generally, it will be a "please don't do that" style notice. More drastic actions will be taken for anyone repeatedly engaging in undesired behavior and showing little to no desire to correct their behavior.

If an established member of the guild does not agree with the behavior of a fellow member, it is the responsibility of said established member to cordially express their expectations to the fellow member and allow them the opportunity to meet the standards of the guild.

If the following conditions have been met, the guild leadership has the right to discuss and decide if the member in question will be able to participate in specific activities, or the guild as a whole - whichever is deemed more appropriate.

- A number of the established group members have expressed their concerns to the member in question

- The member in question has been allowed adequate opportunity to address expressed concerns

- The member in question has not acted in a way suggesting they can fulfill the responsibility of being a cohesive member of the guild (or a specific guild activity)

At the time these conditions have been met, the guild leadership can meet and make a determination on the eligibility of the member in question to take part in guild activities. If it is decided that the member in question does not support the guild/activity, then they should be formally informed of this decision and not be allowed to participate in specified future guild activities.
