General guild rules


Remember the HUMAN!

The golden rule your parents and your kindergarten teacher taught you was pretty simple: "Do unto others as you'd have others do unto you." Imagine how you'd feel if you were in the other person's shoes. Stand up for yourself, but try not to hurt people's feelings.
In cyberspace, we state this in an even more basic manner: Remember the human.
When you communicate electronically, all you see is a computer screen. You don't have the opportunity to use facial expressions, gestures, and tone of voice to communicate your meaning; words -- lonely written words -- are all you've got. And that goes for your correspondent as well.
When you're holding a conversation online – whether in game, in an email exchange or a response to a discussion group posting -- it's easy to misinterpret your correspondent's meaning. And it's frighteningly easy to forget that your correspondent is a person with feelings more or less like your own.
It's ironic, really. Computer networks bring people together who'd otherwise never meet. But the impersonality of the medium changes that meeting to something less -- well, less personal. Humans exchanging email often behave the way some people behind the wheel of a car do: They curse at other drivers, make obscene gestures, and generally behave like savages. Most of them would never act that way at work or at home. But the interposition of the machine seems to make it acceptable.
The message of common sense is that it's not acceptable. Yes, use your network connections to express yourself freely, explore strange new worlds, and boldly go where you've never gone before. But always remember: Those are real people out there.
To summon it up, whenever you are holding a conversation online just ask yourself, "Would I say this to the person's face?" If the answer is no, rewrite and reread. Repeat the process till you feel sure that you'd feel as comfortable saying these words to the live person as you do sending them through cyberspace.
Of course, it's possible that you'd feel great about saying something extremely rude to the person's face. In that case go get a copy of Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior.

GENERAL RULES

These rules apply only for guild members of "30k Ok!"
These rules are the most important rules we have in our guild. We demand you to follow them strictly otherwise you will get penalized with an instant removal from the guild.
Please note that these rules are to be followed all the time while you are playing with your character (they apply also when playing with a pick up group or with any of your alt characters)!

    • NO GANKING!
      “30k Ok” members never ever gank other players! If an enemy player attacks you first you can defend yourself, otherwise move on.
      These rules were applied because people usually gank either low level players, badly geared players or players that are in combat. Seizing the opportunity to show somehow how “leet” you are when he/she is in disadvantage, only shows a lot about yourself. If you want to stress yourself out, go play battlegrounds, or better yet, arenas!
      We will not tolerate this in any way. Feel  free to report the gankers to the guild leader (screenshot of a combat log required)!
    • NO NINJA LOOTING!
      I believe this is self explanatory. Immediate guild kick if you even try to ninja loot something. Feel free to report any ninja looters to the guild leadership (screenshot required)!
    • NO QUITTING!
      Don’t quit a group after you got an item you needed or finished your quest. Always inform people before joining a group how much time you have and when you have to leave.
    • NO SCAMMING!
      If you read the Blizzard WoW policy scamming is forbidden and also punishable. If we ever get you scamming you will be removed from the guild and reported to Blizzard.


Be aware that at ANY time, while you’re ingame or on forums, you represent our guild. Be sure to represent our guild in the best possible way.

    • NO TRASH TALKING
      We will not tolerate any trash talking, either it is on channels/forums where you can publicly represent the guild or in guild chat, raid chat, ventrilo, whispers or in pick up  groups.
      Trash talk includes: sexist, racist, offensive talk or jokes, cursing, “noob”calling, “balls breaking”, toilet humor, etc.
    • NO LEET TALK
      Try to avoid all the “leet” talk since not all people can understand what you’re actually trying to say.
    • NO NOOB CALLING
      Be nice and helpful to all newcomers to WoW. Remember that we were all newcomers once too.
    • NO DRAMA, FLAME BAITS & TROLLING
      When a debate gets heated try to stay objective when replying, more importantly don't get yourself be lured into one in the first place. Use common sense with this and if you don't find any way to avoid it, talk to the guild leader.
      Don't use offensive language, and don't be confrontational for the sake of confrontation.
    • NO SPAMMING
      No spamming in raid, guild, party chat or ventrilo nor on any public chats ingame (general channel, trade channel and similar).
      When using a guild or raid channel, write only what is meant for all people to read. Use whispers for personal stuff.
      Do not start topics that are unimportant all over the forum. That is considered a spam and all unimportant messages will be moved to a proper section or deleted.
      I believe I don’t have to point out that you will be instantly guild kicked if you spam »dirge« or »anal« jokes anywhere.
    • NO ELITISM
      When progressing further into the end game hardcore content we'll all be very happy and exited, but keep in mind this is no special accomplishment. We are nothing special, just a group of ordinary people having fun together and being rewarded for it. I try to stick to a saying: »Be nice to people on the way up as you will meet them on the way down!”
    • HONESTY FTW
      Our guild is based on proper manners and we will try and build a bond of trust and respect with our members. What we expect from you is to be honest at all times about how you feel. If something is bothering you, either in game or in real life, talk to the guild leader. We want to offer you an environment where you can freely express what is on your mind.
