The name of the gaming clan/guild/community shall be Templar, abbreviated TLR.
Templar is a gaming clan/guild/community with no other intention other than having fun in life, in game, and in general. Templar serves as a collaborative environment for gamers of great diversity. There are no limits for Templar, as it is a constantly changing and evolving community while maintaining its core values of respect, integrity and maturity.
Notice of all meetings of Members must be sent at least 5 days in advance. Notice of meetings shall also be posted at the gaming clan/community's website. The leadership may email all members the notice of the meeting to stress the importance of the meeting.
The community of Templar houses several branches within the community that specialize in a particular video game. A branch of Templar is lead by either the Community Leader or a designated Community Officer (detailed in the Community Hierarchy section) who has complete freedom to lead the branch as they please as long as it complies with the community rules.
There are a total of four community ranks within Templar:
Each branch has it’s unique hierarchy managed by the branch leader. This unique hierarchy means that all members of the community hold a rank within the Community Hierarchy, as well as a rank within each corresponding branch they actively participate in. If a branch is forced to dissolve due to unfortunate circumstances, court order, or planned dissolution, all members of that branch will lose their rank within the discontinued branch; however they will continue to hold their rank within the community and any other branches they actively participate in.
The following are a list of rules and Code of Conduct that should be followed by all the Members of TLR|Templar.
Rules can change without notice
If you have any questions about the rules, please contact one of the Officers or Guild Leader.
All Members must also follow all rules defined by the Community Leader.
The Community Leader shall preside over all meetings of the membership. He or she also serves as a representative of Templar to the public, and in all functions where a Community Leader may be called for by any outside requirements. The Community Leader runs and maintains the Website, TeamSpeak and infrastructure supporting the branches of Templar.
Community Leader is a rank that can only be passed down from the previous Community Leader. If the previous Community Leader does not provide a successor, the Community Leader has the option of having the Community Officers vote on which Community Officer will become the next Community Leader.
Community Officers hold the power to start their own branch of Templar after the branch organization has been approved by the Community Leader. The Community Officers shall assist the Community Leader in organizing meetings of the membership. In the event that the Community Leader cannot fulfill his responsibilities at any meeting or function, it is the responsibility of the Community Officers to fulfill the obligations of the Community Leader. The Community Officers make decisions by majority vote on all high level matters concerning the community and its current and future operations. A Community Officer represents and acts as the Community Leader whenever the Community Leader is not present.
Any member of the community is encouraged to apply for the position of Community Officer. Their application will be reviewed by the other Community Officers and Community Leader, who will decide on whether they are accepted into the role. All officers are expected to have excellent leadership skills and a strong level of dedication to the community of Templar.
Templar recognizes and honors the loyal members who have continuously contributed to the success of the community. Many community veterans have held leadership positions in the past with Templar, continued to be a member of Templar for over three years, played in several different games under the Templar banner, or even were original founding members of the gaming community.
This rank is awarded to long-term members for their time and dedication to the Templar gaming community.
The gaming community recognizes the rights of all members. Templar also recognizes the rights of members to vote in all elections opened to regular members. This includes, but is not limited to the election of the officers. The Member rank is awarded to those who have proven that they are an important contribution to the community.
Completed their probationary period and proved to be an important contribution to the community.
Recruit is given to every individual who initially joins Templar. (Unless otherwise sanctioned by the Community Leader and Community Officers) Recruits are expected to follow all the same rules as the rest of the members, but are considered to be in a state of probation which typically lasts 90 days. This period is for the community to observe and see if the individual has proven to be an important contribution to the Community. Since this period is probationary and often given to individuals who have just joined the community, the leadership understands that Templar can be considered overwhelming and therefore the rules are not as strongly enforced but, if you show that you are hazardous to the community, you will be removed without any reason given.
Must be over the age of 18 unless a family member is currently in the community and is over the age of 21, and must complete the application process for Templar.
