As an Aethier Teams member you are subject to tighter scrutiny and higher standards than that of the regular player base. You are the face of the server and must uphold the responsibility of such a position. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in a termination from the Aethier Team(s) and or a Ban at the discretion of the team leaders in a follow up meeting (usually on a case by case basis). This Code of Conduct shall be updated as needed or desired and shall be agreed upon before becoming a full-fledged Aethier Teams Member.

F.A.Q (To be expanded as needed)


Q. Do Team Leaders have to follow policies for “Team Members”

A. They are members of the team just like the rest.


Q. Do the HR Members follow the Aethier Teams CoC?

A: Yes. The HR Team must follow the same standards as the rest of the Aethier Teams team if not better. Any issues a Aethier Teams member may have with a HR Member will be handled by the other HR Members where possible, or in circumstances that can no longer be handled by the HR team, by the Team Leaders.


Q. What if I accidentally "meme" in a 'serious' topic team channel in Discord?

A: You really do not have to worry about that. It is clear what is and isn't intentional. So as long as you are not disruptive and or obnoxious you will not have to worry about repercussions. Though if you are told to stop, stop immediately. Use common sense.


Q. Who do I go to to report another Aethier Teams Member?

A. Team Members may be reported via an IA Report. Such complaints will be Verified by HR, and handed to the relevant team leader. Issues regarding team leaders will be handled directly by HR. In the event the situation can not be handled by HR, it will be handled instead by a collective vote of all remaining Team Leaders.


Q. What if I've had a bad day and I'm starting to get angry in an official team/Aethier Teams text channel?

A. If you're in a bad mood then maybe you shouldn't be tossing yourself into the stress and fray. The rules and guidelines don't change just because we're having a bad day.


Q: What if i don't agree with a Decision made by HR?

A. Any decision made by HR can be reopened and disputed by any team leader. Please pass any relevant complaints via your team leader, and they will start the dispute process.
