To join Exterminatus (hereafter referred to as “community” or “the community”) head to our Application page. All applicants must be 18(+). Once submitted, a new thread will be generated in the Recruitment forum. All replies, including those of the Recruitment Officer will be posted in this thread. Acceptance of applications is up the discretion of Recruitment Officers.
When applying to the community you must read and accept the Community Charter. (ii) The Elder Scrolls Online: if you are applying to the guild for The Elder Scrolls Online you must represent the Ebonheart Pact.
Section II - MEMBERSHIP
You must remain active within the community. If you are going to be absent for a period of time be sure to make a post on the Forums in the AFK/Holidays section. Members who are inactive without notification will be removed from the game guild and community.
Once approved for membership, all members are required to visit the forums regularly. The forums contain important information but are also a social platform.
Members are expected to participate in Guild Events regularly (when time permits). You are encouraged to group up with members for questing and other group specific activities.
Section III - RULES OF CONDUCT
No drama – period! If you have a problem, seek out an Officer to help you.
Respect each other. There’s a difference between joking around and making an offensive comment. If you believe something you might say or write could be hurtful or offensive keep it to yourself. (ii) As we are a mature community, light swearing/cursing will be permitted. However, don’t swear at other gamers or abuse them – this won’t do anyone any good. Those who are easily offended should reconsider applying to the community.
Fighting with members in guild chat is not permitted. If an officer tells you to drop it, do so. If you are having a constructive debate keep it in private messages as onlookers may not realize this and get the wrong idea.
Think of your complaints before you make them. If you are constantly complaining about others the problem may lie with yourself and your own behavior.
The community communicates in English, but not L337 speak. If you need to speak in a different language keep it in private messages or find an empty channel on Discord.
Don’t talk crap about other guilds/communities or their members. Healthy rivalry is encouraged and expected, but keep it respectful. If you have issues with a member of another guild/community inform an Officer.
Don't talk crap about your guild/community or its members. If you have an issue with something or someone then go through the right channels of conflict resolution.
All members are required to use Discord during Guild Events (no exceptions) and when grouping if the group leader requires you to do so. You are strongly encouraged to use Discord at other times. We’re a social community and voice chat is a great venue.
No member should take advantage of cheats or exploits or promote these in any game(s) we play. These issues if witnessed should be reported to the developers of the game at hand. If a member is caught exploiting or cheating they will immediately be banned. We do not justify this behaviour or tolerate it in any way.
EXT Twitch & EXT Youtube
Exterminatus has both a public Twitch and Youtube Channel. In addition to the general rules of conduct a few further rules were added concerning privacy. As with all entries in our charter we do rely on common sense and all cases are handled individually.
Everyone has the right to refuse to be featured in a stream or video.
Everyone has the right to have a stream or video they're in removed.
You must follow the community rules, and the rules set by either Youtube or Twitch, in every recording.
A more in-depth charter can be accessed by our members via our forums. If you are not a member but have an issue with any of the footage we publish on the aforementioned channels then please contact us on our Guest Board or private message one of our Community Staff members.
Section IV - RANKS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY
Ranks are earned, not given.
Recruit: This is an in-game rank only, reserved for players who'd like to have a tryout with Exterminatus. Recruit's permissions in game are restricted to a minimum and they enjoy no website privilege, nor do they have any influence on decision making. Restrictions may vary per game and are determined by that game's Guild Leader. Recruits [u]must[/u] apply via the website if they wish to gain full membership. Acceptance of their application is up the discretion of Recruitment Officers.
Member: Those who survived our application process are granted the rank of Member and enjoy full membership privileges both in game and on the website and in the Community. They can be involved in decision making and can rise to other ranks within the guild and Community.
Veteran: The Veterans of the community are members who have been with us for quite some time through different games. They have shown their loyalty and are rewarded with the rank of Veteran.
Honored Veteran: These members have gone the extra mile whether it be while they were Veterans or Officers previously. They are respected by fellow members and have shown their dedication to the community.
Officer: This rank is reserved for all Division/Branch staff members. They often have designated roles such as recruitment, PvE and/or PvP. They help handle problems that may arise within the guild and play an active role in organization. They have qualities in leadership, communication and managing.
Guild Leader: Guild Leaders have the same qualities as Officers. They are in charge of managing the guild and its Officers. This rank has supreme power although not used often. If a decision must be made quickly it will happen and it will be final.
Community Staff: This rank is held by individuals who concern themselves with the overall well being and longevity of the whole Community. They work in close proximity with the Guild Leaders of the games played by the Community.
(ii) Promotions: Promotions are based upon participation, upholding the Community Charter and character. (iii) Honoured Veterans, Veterans and Members may hold the in game rank of Corporal. These individuals are capable squad leaders in PvE, PvP or both. They do not have the responsibilities or privileges that Officers do and abide by the general charter. They assist during guild events and other events by providing groups with leadership for optimal coordination.
Section V - GROUPING
You are encouraged to group up with fellow members, but you shouldn’t pester them to help you out. We expect you to be self-sufficient. The guild will provide events, but we can’t hold your hand the whole time.
Respect your group leader and follow their instructions. It is fine to disagree and/or make suggestions, but the group leader makes the final decision. At the same time group leaders are expected to give solid directions and resolve conflicts in a calm manner. The group leader always reserves the right to remove you from the group.
Be realistic: don’t require a position in a group for content much above your own level. Also consider group balance.
Be a team player and adapt to the situation if necessary. What might work for you while playing solo might not during a group endeavor. Failure is a great indicator to do better rather than whine. Don’t blame yourself or others, simply admit there’s another way.
Have fun. Dying is not so bad if you turn it into a drinking game.
(ii) The Elder Scrolls Online: all members are expected to bring repair kits to guild events and wear a fully repaired armor. In PvP you are expected to bring soul gems to resurrect. You are also expected to bring siege weaponry. If you cannot, please inform your group leader so they can anticipate. Guild achievements can only be reached if you decide to play together rather than teaming up with random players.
Section VI - CONFLICT RESOLUTION
Any concern or issue should be directed to an Officer or Guild Leader.
Problems or issues with another guild should be directed to an Officer.
Problems or issues with an Officer should be directed to the Guild Leader.
Problems or issues with a Guild Leader should be directed to the Community Leader.
(ii) Supporting screenshots or statements may be required. (iii) There is no guarantee of any sort of action, only that the problem or concern will be discussed and resolved in a manner deemed best by the guild/community staff.
Section VII - DISCIPLINARY ACTION
Disciplinary action may be taken if a discussion with an offending member and/or complaint cannot be resolved.
In all but the most severe cases members will be given a warning. If they continue to offend and/or do not uphold the charter and general rules of conduct they will be removed from the guild and community.
Any member who disrespects an officer during a conflict resolution may be removed from the guild and community. Supporting screenshots may need to be provided.
A game's Guild Leader reserves the right to take any actions deemed necessary related to the members of their guild.
The Community Leader reserves the right to take any action deemed necessary related to all members of the community.
