The following are SDP Rules and Regulations.
These are to be followed and will be strictly enforced.
Rule 1: Trust, Honor, Respect
These are the three tenants that are to be lived by whether it be in the game, or in real life.
Trust: To be honest to your fellow teammates. Never deceiving and always believing a SDP member above all others. We are not just a clan, we are a family.
Honor: To always harbor good feelings and uplifting behavior towards each other. We are here to bring you up, not take you down.
Respect: To accept your fellow members for who they are and abide by their personal rules. If someone doesn’t want to be treated a certain way then respect him/her and don’t do it.
REMEMBER: The SDP symbol stands for equality from top to bottom.
Rule 2: No Racism
The race, creed or religion of a SDP member shall not be the topic of jokes, cruel remarks or insults. Disrespect of any kind over race, creed or religion is an automatic suspension.
Rule 3: No Lying or Cheating
Honesty is pretty self-explanatory. Don’t do or say anything that even comes close to be considered as lying or cheating in game or in the forums.
Rule 4: No Sexism
The gender of a SDP member shall not be the topic of jokes, cruel remarks or insults. Disrespect of any kind over gender is an automatic suspension.
Rule 5: No Disrespect towards leaders
This is a major NO NO. If you disrespect an appointed high ranking Officer of SDP, you will be dealt with in a manner more severe than a normal rule breaking. Possible termination and banning.
Rule 6: Gamer Tags
If you wish to change your name on your console you must notify leadership so that we can change your name in the team roster. Excessive name changes will not be tolerated.
Rule 7: In game Clan Tags
All members of SDP are REQUIRED to wear the SDP clan tag at all times ingame. Most games allow for four characters at the beginning of the gamer tag and SDP all caps will be the standard. Furthermore, all SDP clan members are REQUIRED to list in their profile bio. This is so that it makes it easier to identify the many members of SDP outside of the game.
Rule 8: Abusive Language
Everyone cusses in game, especially when they get screwed over by some stupid latency issue or some noob or hacker. It’s understandable to drop the occasional f-bomb. There are other words that are also considered foul language that are used quite loosely among the gamer community. SDP leadership would like to expect its members to rise above the common gamer not just in skill, but also in attitude and maturity. Therefore, excessive foul orabusive language will NOT be tolerated, either in game or anywhere SDP is associated.
Rule 9: Rage Quitting
Rage Quitting is expressly prohibited. If you leave in the middle of the game because your mad at it, mad at someone, mad at a hacker, or mad in general, unless it has to do with PERSONAL life such as wife, kids, puking your guts out, or anything equally or more serious, then you are a rage quitter.
Rule 10: Social Media
While being a member of SDP, you will follow, like or subscribe to all SDP social media sites. You will promote SDP and try to get more followers for the clan. If you are on Xbox One you will have a Twitch account and broadcast whenever possible. We are not only a clan but also a brand and promotion is key to our success.
Rule 11: Recruiting
Recruiting for SDP is done by everyone, but only the leadership can invite recruits to the clan. Whomever recruited the new member will be their mentor and show and tell them how SDP works and what they need to do to stay a member.
1 Rule Break:
2 Rule Breaks:
Suspension. Meaning, not allowed to play or converse with SDP for the time allotted by the present leader. If you do try to force your way into playing or even conversing with other members, you will be removed from SDP.
3 Rule Breaks:
SDP Leadership Tribunal Sentencing. If found guilty of all 3 broken rules, you will be terminated and possibly banned depending on the severity of the broken rules. Auto Suspension.
The following will result in automatic suspensions:
Not wearing Clan tags.
Disrespect towards Fellow Clan Members.
Hacking or cheating.
If you were convicted falsely and can provide substantial proof while suspended you may bring this to the SDP Leader who carried out your punishment.
If you were terminated and feel that you have changed. You can reapply to SDP after 1 month of termination.
If you were banned from SDP, you must get the approval of every SDP member and Leader to remove the banning. Once removed you are on termination status and will have a chance to reapply after 1 month.
If you are Blacklisted you cannot rejoin SDP and there is no way around it. Blacklisting only happens in the most extreme cases and requires approval from all leaders.
Reason for rules: These rules may be harsh but they are very easy to follow. If you break them, it simply states that you do not have Trust, Honor, or Respect.
