ARTICLE V
 
Membership Rules


Section 5.1 All members shall adhere to the following rules and regulations while maintaining their presence within Carnage Clan, regardless of rank:
 
(a)    You must be Mature - As serious as we are about Carnage and our gaming,  the real world comes first in all matters of  Family, Jobs, or any other aspect of Real Life which adults accept and understand as the meaning of maturity and adulthood.  While there are always exceptions, we have found that those beyond their teenage years are statistically more ready to accept this as a Fact of Life.  If you cannot accept that, if you need that explained any further, stop reading now as this is not the guild for which you are seeking.
 
(b)   You must Read the Charter in Full - Take your time to give it a thorough, honest reading.  It defines Carnage in both spirit and operational methodology.  What you are reading within this document is precisely who and what we are, what we have to be in order to honor the legacy of Carnage.  If after reading it you should then decide that you subscribe to its philosophies, believe you can and are willing to adhere to our Way, you are clear to proceed in the application process.  Failure to read the Charter, to understand the Charter, to agree to the Charter, will become apparent very early on, resulting in non-compatibility between the applicant and Carnage.  Ultimately, this will result your dismissal.
 
(c)    Once you are ready to begin the process, register here on the forums using your in-game  main character name and an active email address which you use on a regular (preferably daily) basis.  Your email address will not be posted publicly nor used for any other purpose other than communication with Carnage. (i) While we will not dictate what your name should be, we can dictate what it cannot be for consideration for membership.    We encourage everyone to create a name for yourself that means something to you personally.   This way the name you want will go down in the Annals as somebody worth remembering.   If you absolutely feel the need to name yourself ##$FEELALOIT or IDRINKPOO, you probably won't fit in. (ii) once completed, you must begin your journey with Carnage by becoming an active member of our forum community through participation in the Commons.  There will you find any number of posts which reflect the common interests of Carnage, ranging from video games, to politics, to social observations, etc.  While responding to the existing threads is a good start, it does not give adequate insight as to whom you are as a person.  In order to further our understanding of each other, you will need to create your own posts, sharing your own interests. (iii) Establishing your presence in The Commons is the first necessary step to demonstrate your ability and willingness to proceed.  Each potential applicant is required to spend an undetermined period of time reading and posting throughout The Commons.  This may be a week or several weeks, depending on your level of activity and commitment to entrenching yourself within our community.  This will allow you the time required to make an informed decision about your gaming future by allowing yourself and Carnage the opportunity to interact with one another. (iv) As your real life, private information is yours and yours alone, you may wish to divulge whatever else you choose, at Your discretion.  We strongly advise that you do not share any personal information about yourself or your family that can be used by data miners and/or anyone whom you may know in the real world which may seek to do you any harm.
 
(d)     If/When we deem that you are ready to proceed, your member group on the forums will be elevated to "Camp Follower". (i) You will also be given an interview which has been designed over many years to provide Carnage with insight into not only what type of person you are, but what type of gamer as well.   Answer each question with full honesty in as much detail as you are willing and able.  The purpose of our rigorous application process is to ensure that you will be a match for Carnage.  It behooves both parties when Carnage is likewise a match for you.   If you are dishonest with us, you are first and foremost being dishonest with yourself.  There are no "right" and "wrong" answers per se,  in the sense we are going to judge you personally or morally.   Again, these questions are designed to determine your play style and whether or not they serve the good of Carnage. (ii) After you have submitted your responses, they will be posted to our member forums for a panel of Carnage's Recruiters to review and vote upon.   This method is our Tradition.  It ensures that one or two people are not making the sole decision on whom with the rest of Carnage should be playing.   While we are not a democracy, consensus must be reached at some level in a gaming organization as to which members are allowed in and to remain.  (iii) If you are voted for approval to continue, your member group on the forums will be elevated to "Recruit", and you will gain access to even more of the forums.  As with each step in the process, you may request an APPLICANT PROCESSING STATUS REPORT for updates. (iv) If it does not work out for whatever reason:  You will first receive an email of denial and your forum account will be deleted.There will be no further contact on behalf of Carnage.                      
 
(e)      Agree to and understand the Purpose of Recruit Phase: A probationary period is required in order to offer both applicant and Veterans the opportunity to learn one another without undue expectations.  While there is no set time for this phase, those who have read the Charter and understand the philosophies behind it, will find themselves awarded their Colors in good time. If you find that you do not enjoy Carnage way of life, simply take your leave by way of a PM to any Officer in order to document the Roster, no questions asked, no drama to endure on either end.
 
 
  
(f)    Agree to make CARNAGE your exclusive guild in the Game and Server selected for CARNAGE Deployment.  We do not allow part time participants to join our ranks.   While we cannot dictate what you do with your account, Carnage can, will, does dictate which type of gamer fits the profile for unit cohesion. 
 
(g)   When you are chatting in-game, posting in forums or other social media, you are acting as a  representative of our Clan  as you carry the [CARNAGE] Tag with you all the time. Please avoid being whiny, annoying, problematic, or disrespectful in these situations. (i) once one of our members makes our Clan look bad, people will assume that all of our members behave like that. Not only does it damage your reputation, it also damages the Clan’s reputation as a whole. (ii) If you do something wrong like caused a flame war or get into a heated argument with other players, please let a CARN Officer know about the issue at the soonest time possible.    If you tell us beforehand, we can better defend you or at the least are aware of it so we are not blindsided when the issue is brought to our attention.   If you get in a  heated argument with a CARN OFFICER and your a Recruit Good luck to you and all your endeavors(been nice knowing you).  (iii) If you do not inform us and it blows into a huge fiasco, then expect the worst! (iv) Any CARN Member proven to cause damage to the Clan’s reputation will have your CARN Membership revoked immediately.
 
(h)   DISCORD is  MANDATORY  for all CARN Members when Online / In-Game.  NO Exceptions! Unless you have Kids, "Real life" that you are dealing with at that time (i) CARN  Members that are Online/In-Game but not logged in to our DISCORD will be given up to Three (3) Warnings to comply or risk having your CARN Membership revoked. (Unless you have a disability or other personal issues in which case we will work out something unique case to case basis (ii) you set up your DISCORD, please create your DISCORD name to be the same as your forum name. (iii) CARNAGE DISCORD server will have multiple channels for those that would like to be less social than others, Although we promote a social environment where members can know one another and friendships can be made and maintained (iv) we strongly suggest that you get to know your team Brothers and sisters and familiarize their voices as this would be very helpful during Clan Wars / Clan Operations / Raids.

 A Note on: LOYALTY 

“Fortius Quo Fidelius” means “Strength Through Loyalty”.

We do our best to keep a tight-knit group of people who care about each other and the Clan as a unified force, a common place for us all to gather and fight back to back against whatever challenges lies ahead.

If you are more concerned with yourself, your own needs, then this is NOT the Clan for you.

As a CARNAGE Member, you agree that you will protect the assets, resources and classified information of our Clan and will NOT  disclose it to anyone outside of the Clan. Any CARN Member proven to be in breach of this agreement will be subjected to having their CARN Membership terminated immediately and will also receive a  Lifetime Ban  from joining CARN and its allies as well.

Any CARNAGE Member proven to be in breach will be subjected to having their CARNAGE Membership terminated.
