Voting and democracy

Our Guild is a guild for all guild members, we want to hear your voice. Which is why we do votes!

Not all the time, but every now and then we will vote on something within the guild, Sometimes its on a new guild event, other times its about a members role within the guild.

Larger scale changes to the guild that involve everyone can only be done after a majority vote.

To maintain order, subjects for vote will usually be brought up and discussed during weekly guild meetings, which take place most Saturdays at 12pm PST, immediately after character aging. For better efficiency, it is highly recommended that new subjects are brought to a council member for discussion and refinement prior to being raised at the guild meeting.

Be nice and respect your fellow guild members.

We want everyone’s experience in Audacia to be an enjoyable one.

If any member harasses another member you can report it to the guild leader, guild officer or any of the guild council members. (preferably with screenshots) The leader and council members will then talk about the appropriate course of action to take.

The action we take will be handled case by case, The offender may be given a warning, or if the offense is serious enough, will result in an auto boot.

The last thing we want to do, is be forced to boot someone out of the guild, but will do it if necessary, so please behave.

Additionally, any member who declares they are gonna leave the guild, must leave the guild within 2 weeks of declaring departure or they will get booted out.

Guild meetings

Guild meetings occur most weeks on Saturday at 6PM PST.

Meetings cover the previous week’s occurrences, as well as next week’s votes and events. In the case of an event ending, they also include an award ceremony.

The council decides the highest priority topics. These are discussed before any member may raise a different topic. Any member may address the council during the week to request a topic to be added to the schedule.

Discussion during the meeting is done in turn. Members should be seated during the meeting, and should get up if they wish to speak. They will receive the floor once the previous speaker is done.

Guild Events

Every so often, the guild will hold an event. An event typically lasts one week, during which members try to accumulate the highest amount of points.

Events are generally tailored to promote guild goals, ranging from guild promotion, increase in guild resources, and increasing bonds between members in the guild.

Winners of an event may choose items from the Guild Event Rewards Pool.

Prior to an event starting, it will be discussed at a guild meeting, and be subject to a vote.

Personal Events

Guild members may organize their own events. These differ from guild events in that they are not subject to vote. The organizer may set arbitrary rules.

The following requirements apply to a personal event:

  • The person organizing the event must personally finance any rewards. Access to the Guild Event Rewards Pool is not given.
  • The event must be scheduled during a guild meeting, or in a discussion with the council, so as to not overlap other events or guild activities.
