The Three Rules - Expansion

If any member is found breaking rule #1 or #2 more than once, it will result in an immediate dismissal from Atlas Defense Industries.

Rule #1 - Don't be a jerk

The purpose of this rule is rather simple, we want to provide an enjoyable environment and that isn't helped if somebody is being purposefully rude, disruptive or childish. That sort of attitude creates a hostile environment, which isn't an enjoyable environment to be in. You wouldn't want someone being an asshat in your home, and neither do we.

Rule #2 - Don't cause drama

This is one of the rules we stress the most. This ranges from grumbling about decisions and personal opinions, to openly stirring up ill feeling in a malicious way. If you ever at any point encounter a problem which causes disagreement, whether it be an Organization decision or an argument with staff or a member, please bring it to the attention of a director in a calm manner; instead of venting it in public forums.

Rule #3 - Real life comes first

At ADI we all understand that there are concerns that exist outside of the Organization and the game. Most of us have jobs or school, and a lot of us have families. There are external pressures and ADI will never ask you to put your role within the Organization or Star Citizen ahead of your real life. Whenever you have to take a break, just make a post in the forums and someone will quickly respond with "Don't worry, real life first." And that is how it should be.

Multi-Org Official Policy

Atlas Defense Industries requires that you join as an exclusive, primary member of our organization. Requests to affiliate to other Organizations are limited, handled on a case by case basis, and must follow the following rules.

Leadership

All leadership positions in ADI (Division Heads, Team Leaders, Recruiters, etc) must be primary members of the ADI org. Org tags and signatures must be visible at all times. Membership in affiliate Organizations must be approved on a case by case basis.

Exclusivity

Membership in ADI requires all members to be a primary member of the ADI org and *must not* be set as affiliate. They may join 'club style' affiliate orgs, but leadership reserves the right to black list orgs, or prohibit membership if said membership poses a security risk to ADI.

Piracy

At no time may any member of ADI be associated with a pirate organization.

Concealment

Attempts to hide or redact org status from ADI leadership or the general public will result in the immediate termination of any member caught doing so, in all cases. Even if the affiliate org membership in and of itself is not a violation of the Multi-Org Policy.

ADI Age Policy

Atlas Defense Industries has a policy on the age at which people may join. A majority of our members are older, and the atmosphere is mature, which means that we usually take on 16+ members. However, there are exceptions and age related rules that need to be highlighted.

As already pointed out, ADI primarily accepts those players who are sixteen years or older. However, those younger than sixteen years old are reviewed on a case by case basis to determine whether they are mature enough to be accepted into ADI. As a general rule, we allow members of a family to join the org.

There are rooms in our mumble server which have age restrictions that must be followed. This is because said areas are more mature, and it wouldn't be appropriate to allow younger members access. There are many rooms that do not have this restriction that are very active, so this is not a restraint on your interaction with Organization members.

Expanded Policies
