As the founder of Orion Knights, my primary responsibility will be to ensure that this is a safe and comfortable environment for everyone. Although I will be asking help from both our guild officers and also our guild members to politely remind people of our policies when broken, I will handle the unpleasant task enforcing them. The exact procedures will always be open for discussion, but my current plans, depending on the seriousness of the offense, are to give 1 or 2 polite warning, then 1 or 2 firm warning and finely termination from the guild. I will also maintain our web site, monitor our form for spam, harassing and inappropriate posts and such.
I feel that I already have enough responsibility and don’t plan on managing the guild myself with the exception of ensuring that it will always welcome anyone that’s willing to follow our code of conduct. I will recruit officers to run the guild who will do so with its members best interests. At first I will personally pick the officers however as the guild grows I plan on turning over the actual picking of officers to our members.
I am dedicating a character and it’s EK, a variety of strongholds and a guild hall among other items to the guild. I will manage our central stronghold and it’s parcel for all guild members to use. I currently plan to make this parcel open to the pubic with PVP turned off but this may change as we see how the game mechanics work and what the community wants and needs. I will assign the other parcels of this EK to our Officers as needed for there use in supporting the guild. I’m also going to dedicate my 2nd account’s EK to the guild. I’m thinking of making it a huge PVP arena and harvesting area but this will actually be up to the guild members as how to best use it. My 2nd character however will be for my own enjoyment and won’t belong to the guild but it will be one of it’s members and also subjects to our code of conduct. I have secured 3 years of web hosting and have created this site for our guild. I plan on expanding and making it better and more useful for the guild as time goes by. The site currently has a form where our officers and the community can communicate with each other.
