1. PREFACE This charter should be read and understood by all community members. If you have any questions or remarks do not hesitate to contact a member of the Community Staff.
2. MISSION STATEMENT Our focus is building a strong Community with good relationships through sound recruitment and teamwork. We are currently looking for members who wish to positively contribute to our Community and be with our team for the long term.
3. SANCTIONS We are not a Community that wants to police its members. We hope to use this section only rarely, but any breach of this charter should be reported to the Community Staff.
4. Code of Conduct The Below rules will result in an Auto Ban by any Community Staff. These rules are considered to be our Golden Rules and have no warnings. They are applied to all Community Games, Forums, TeamSpeak and Chat on the website. Any dispute on Ban’s from these rules will only be done during Official Officer meetings.

4.2 Discussions of Drugs, Religion or Politics are prohibited in “public” channels.
4.3 Attacking an individual's Nationality, Religion, Sex, Sexual Preference or Political beliefs.
4.4 Any crass and or derogatory remarks are never allowed in Guild Chat, Forum posts or with in TeamSpeak.
4.5 Trolling on any Community Social Site, within any Community game, Community forums, or Community Teamspeak.
4.6 Creating a Toxic Environment - creating an uncomfortable environment for those involved.
5. Player Disputes Anytime a dispute comes up between two or more players, please keep all arguments out of general or public chat. Disputes can impact the community greatly, when people do not hear or know the full story or reasoning behind the dispute. Disputes can and will happen, we want to make sure when they do, that they are resolved as fast and fairly as possible. If one of the members involved in a dispute wishes to ask an Officer or Multiple Officers to hear both sides of the dispute and help rule on what side is in the right you may do so.

14. Donations All Donations through the website are sent to Daphonic the Community Founder Donations are used for everything from Website upkeep, Server rental, TeamSpeak and other Community Projects. Due to the Nature of Donations on Paypal, once a Donation has been made a refund is unavailable.
15. Creating a New Division If you feel Lethality should join a game that is already out, and we have no Division for the game, a Member that is in good standing with the Community is allowed to talk with the Council to create a Division for the game with ⅗ Community Staff Approval. For a member to start this Division with the backing of the Community they will need at least 4 other members who wish to join you in the new Division.

Once a new Division has been established, the Member that created the new Division will become the new Division Leader, and will be assigned a Community Council Member as their Helper and Mentor. As the New Division Leader you are allowed to appoint 1 of the Members who are created the new Division with you as a Division Officer. This person must also be in Good standing within the Community.

If the Division does well, and gains more members, the Division Leader is allowed to appoint more Division Officers who are in good standing with the Community, based on the number of current Members within the new Division.

For the Division to remain open you must keep recruitment steady and new Members coming in. You must also enforce all Lethality Rules and keep it a great place for the community. If this does not happen, the Division will be closed, and the ranks removed from the Leader and Officer.
16. Leaving a Division At any time someone feels they are not getting what they want out of one of our Divisions they are allowed to leave and join another guild in that Game. We request that you talk with the leader of the Division so they know why you are leaving and to keep Member status with our Community. If you leave without telling anyone, your Member status may be removed from the website and our Teamspeak Server.

Anyone who creates another guild in a Chapter we are already established will be asked to leave the Community as a whole. This is make sure that members aren’t split, and Community resources, are not used for Guilds/Clans outside of Lethality.
17. Guild Merges All potential Guild merges will be brought to a Community Leader or the Founder’s attention. All Officers and Members of the Merging Guild must follow all rules with in this charter with no exceptions.
