Universal is an inclusive guild that tries to create a home for everyone to enjoy. Because we are large and international, the following policies have been put in place
Overview The Universal Guild is a Safe Zone when it comes to all IRL issues: a space that respects all aspects of the people behind the keyboards, including race, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, age, religion, body shape, size, and ability. These policies extend to interactions both inside and outside of the guild. Because of this, we try to keep language to all age and tolerance levels. This extends to: Guild and public in-game chat Discord Character naming More policies and information are listed below. Make sure to read and understand how these policies may impact the way you enjoy the game. Thanks so much for reading!
Guild Charter The Universal guild is a community guild on the Satele Shan server, where friends and guild members can come together and enjoy the game they love. While our main focus is PvE, we welcome other forms of game play. We believe that players of Star Wars: The Old Republic should be given the opportunity to experience multiple aspects of the game - and that a lack of experience or knowledge does not necessarily imply a lack of aptitude. We house players from all walks of life, creeds, skill levels and personalities, and we expect you to treat fellow guild members and the SWTOR community with respect and kindness. Your actions reflect on the guild just as much as they are reflected on you.
Know the Rules Every member is expected to be familiar with the guild policies and abide by them. Claiming to be unaware of these policies will not be excused. If you are having problems with another member who is violating these policies and you don’t think you can resolve the issue on your own, let an officer know or send a discord message via the M-3PO bot. If an officer investigates a situation involving a Universal member who is not following the guild credo and policies, repercussions are up to officer interpretation. In extreme cases, members may face expulsion from the guild (of all characters). If guild members wish to appeal any officer decisions please feel free to contact the M-3PO bot in discord.
Member Conduct The Universal Guild is a Safe Zone, and will not tolerate IRL discrimination or harassment of any kind to anyone, even outside of the Universal Guild. Members should keep their language (in all public channels) acceptable to all ages and tolerances. All members must abide by Biowares EUALA and Rules of Conduct found here http://www.swtor.com/legalnotices/euala http://www.swtor.com/legalnotices/rulesofconduct. Members must not beg for gold or items or anything else that may be considered spam in guild chat. Members are expected to discuss requests, concerns, issues, or disputes directly with the officers by direct message in Discord, in-game, or contacting the M-3PO bot in Discord.
Community, Teamwork, and Respect The Universal guild is an all-ages Safe Zone. Members are expected to keep their conversations in all public channels (in-game, in Discord or other auxiliary channels) suitable for all ages (in video game ratings, we’d put it at Teen). We will not tolerate any discrimination based upon race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, veteran status, ancestry, national or ethnic origin. Members should refrain from discussing politics, religion, illegal activities, and other divisive topics in guild chat, Discord public channels and within guild event groups.
Discord The Discord server is for the use of all guild members for both written and voice chat. Guild chat rules apply to all public Discord channels.
