§1 - Code of Conduct

Read them and play by them.

As Authored by Ozon, edited by Zellez and last modified by leaders of Ragnarok WoW (01.03.10):

We are a Scandinavian guild of friends but every guild need some rules, so these are the basics.

No money between guild members!
“Take what you need and give what you can” is the motto here. Free buffing and the handing down of armor, weapons and similar items is a very big benefit to the guild, but not the biggest. Fellowship is the biggest benefit and that can easily be ruined if the privilege is abused. We therefore ask that members don’t ask or request items that are higher than their ability to use them. An item that is sitting around waiting to be used is one that could potentially benefit another member even for a short time. Also, selling items that have been given to you by the guild for your use is discouraged. You’re not required to hand down items you find or purchase, and may sell them. Handing items down is just a sign of interest in growth of the guild and is favorable.

There is one exception to this rule: in the case of very rare and therefore expensive items, where the finder stands to “lose” hundreds of gold by handing the item down rather than selling it. Here we encourage sale at a favorable price within the guild. No need for a list. We all know the items.

Of course, we won't stop you if you feel like tipping a guildie for a service, but it shouldn't be expected or required!

Common sense and good behavior is expected.
This includes not using foul or abusive language, NO spamming, not being rude, not being disruptive during meetings / raids etc.

This should be self evident. Childish behavior will not be rewarded, maturity and responsibility will. Also, blatant use of exploits is not acceptable conduct. Not only will you make us look bad, but also the use of exploits can result in you being banned from the game. Ragnarok wants to maintain a solid reputation as an honorable guild. We do not want to be accused of cheating in PvP, corpse camping, foul language, griefing etc. If that is your game, this is the wrong guild for you.

Remember you represent Ragnarok every time you interact with others; therefore it is very important that you be respectful of people and their time. For example when asking for buffs - take your time, ask politely - and just as importantly: give people time to reply. Do not join a team and then go “afk” for 10 minutes. Stand true to the commitments you make to others in-game. Ragnarok has a good reputation with other guilds, and we want to keep it that way.

No spamming on guild chat for buffs, items or help will be allowed.
If you ask once and no one answers, then accept that currently no one is able to assist you. If you ask 5 times in one minute, this is considered spamming. (Leaders will spam the guild channel from time to time, e.g. when rallying for a raid, this is of course accepted).

Generally, you will be much more likely find what you are looking for, and less likely to upset other members if you ask a few times over a longer period of time, use the forums or ask a leader in a PM. Use your head; if you demonstrate politeness and are very supportive of the guild, you are more likely to find what you seek. If you are arrogant and rude, you will most likely find no help. If you are having a hard time finding something, ask a general nicely if they can assist.

We expect you to participate in the member web forum.
It is the perfect place to get to know other members of the guild and a very powerful source of information and communication outside of the game. We have tons of experience between us, utilize it. Participation on the forums will help to strengthen our community.
