REIGN maintains a casual activity policy to ensure everyone is a contributing part of our community. We are a casual-friendly group, meaning that we do not demand you to be online 24/7 or attend every single planned guild event, but we do expect that everyone maintains a reasonable level of activity and has a presence within our community. This goes for both in- and out-of-game (our forums namely). We are NOT in the business of being a "zerg" guild, artifically inflating our numbers to look intimidating or allowing the quality of our community to be diminished by having people join up only to disappear for weeks or months at a time. This policy is not meant to scare people away or make them feel like being in the guild is akin to a job, but friendships are difficult to establish if we were to allow people to vanish on us, which is not in our interest.
REIGN has two general activity guidelines:
General Activity Requirements
REIGN defines "activity" as making a solid effort to be a part of our community. This includes actively posting within our forums, chatting with fellow guild members in our website chat, playing games with one another, and/or chatting with others on our VOIP server.
"AFK" (away from keyboard), a term used within many of the policies listed below, is the acronym we use to describe periods of inactivity; the time in which a member does not or is unable to visit and post in the forums, play games with others, chat with fellow guild members, etc...
The general activity requirement varies by rank/level of responsibility within the guild as follows:
Note that trial applicants (Hopefuls) are not listed above as they are only at said rank for two weeks before their fate is determined as to whether or not they become a full regular member.
Forum Posting Requirements
As a guild focused on building and maintaining a quality community, in-game AND forums activity COMBINED is paramount. We do not require everyone to be an in-game or a forum "warrior," but a reasonable presence in the game and on the forums is expected. After all, the primary reason to join a guild like ours is to be a part of the community.
Every single member, regardless of rank and who has not posted in the AFK section is encouraged to make at least one (1) post per week in the forums. Many of our members average 10+ posts a day, so asking for one a week is extremely minimal, but it's a good way to at least get your name spread into the community and allows for others to engage in conversation with you outside of a game.
