    Welcome to Xiled Syndicate

    We’re so glad to have you interested in joining our community

     

    REQUIREMENTS

    1. Check the recruit’s gamertag, friends list, clubs, and activity feed for any sign of clan membership or suspicious activity. If anything seems strange, you are not required to train anyone in. Make sure you report any suspicious activity up your Chain of Command.
    2. Ask the recruit if they have been in any other community. If they have, please direct them to the ‘Ex-Blacklisted Clan or Other Community’ subforum of the clan Court Area of the Forums (Human Resources Division) and request that they fill out the form there to be granted instatement into the community.
    3. Ask the date of the recruit’s birth (Day, Month, Year). Do NOT ask their age, do the math yourself to ensure validity. (The recruit must be 15 for adult division)
    4. The recruit must have a mic.
    5. The recruit must either already have or be willing to download Discord onto their computer, mobile device, or utilize the app through XBOX.
    6. The recruit must have a minimum of 1000 GS 
      • If the recruit comes with a recommendation from Director or higher, they can be trained in without the minimum gamerscore.
    7. No one is to be recruited with another community in their gamertag (excluding Professional Organizations the potential new member is a "fan" of i.e: FaZe, OpTic, nV, MLG)

    If the recruit meets ALL of the above requirements,  you may continue with the recruitment process below.

    Please go to www.XiledSyndicate.com and click Sign Up (It’s right below the words ‘Sign In’). Make sure that the email they use is one they have immediate access to

    • Your Display Name should match your Gamertag, PSN ID, or Steam Name.
    • Select the rank of Recruit.
    • Your division will be (Insert Division Name)
    • Check your email for a validation link or wait for Admin approval. If you’re having problems finding the email, make sure you check your spam folder.

    While they wait for the email or Admin approval, take advantage of the time to go over some general information about the community.

     

    BASIC INFORMATION

    • XS has over 3,200 members ranging over multiple consoles including PC, XBox One, and PS4. We have over 60,000 subscribers to our social community forums. We are sponsored by several large names in gaming including: Aporia Customs, AirDropCrates, Rogue Energy, JerkyXP and more
    • We have over 30 ranks in XS ranging from Private to President
    • Everything is voluntary, we offer a high level of respect to everyone for what they do to keep the community running. Additionally, no member is forced to change their Gamertag to reflect Their community unless you choose to go to the rank of Lieutenant or higher.
    • As a rule, XS asks that unless business is being discussed or a Senior Officer asks you to lock down a party, parties remain open so you’re easy to contact should the need arise.
    • Additionally, we ask that all members do not kick any individuals from their party. If you have an issue with another member, leave the party and start your own. If they continue to join, you may report the situation up your Chain of Command.

     

    BYLAWS

    Though in Xiled Syndicate we have a set of rules and policies we uphold, there are two specific rules we would like to go over, known as our two Bylaws.

    1. Respect ALL Gamers
    2. Leave No Man Behind

     

    SOCIAL MEDIA

    Are you familiar with any of the various forms of popular social media (primarily including, but not limited to, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube)?

    If the recruit answers yes, please encourage them to follow our Youtube, primarily, but also any other form of social media we cover to keep up to date and support the community’s efforts at building a steady media presence.

    If the recruit answers no, encourage them to become active on our social media platforms to be more active within the community and get the most out of their membership as is possible as well as keep up with events, giveaways, and more.

    Following are the links to our Social Media Platforms:

     

    RANKING UP

    There are five primary ways in which members can rank up within Xiled Syndicate:

    1. Recruiting - Xiled Syndicate is always looking for new, quality members interested in playing and working alongside us to build the community.
    2. Posting on the Forums - Our forums is our primary form of communication. We ask that members attempt to check-in a minimum of 1 time a week here. This isn’t a difficult task to complete and shows that you’re an active member.
    3. Attending Meetings - Our meetings are at (state meeting times). Attendance at these meetings is important as it gets out important information throughout the community such as events and alerts. We recommend you attend as many as possible.
    4. Attending Workshops - Workshops are educational meetings that teach a member about various aspects of the community.
    5. Attending Game Nights - Game Nights are regular events that can be held by any member, providing that a member of the rank of Lieutenant or higher is present.

    Have the recruit go to their email, verify their membership, and check-in on the forums. Guide them to their Division Section, and have them make their first post in the welcome topic/ “New Members Post Here” topic. Once this is complete, have the recruit go to their Xbox Console 

     

    SETTINGS
    Several privacy settings must be changed for a member to join the Xiled Syndicate to protect our members from many security risks  and help us recognize you as a member of the community.

    1. Have the member to to Profile, then Privacy Settings

    (Make sure these are done correctly!!) 

     

    UNIFORM PLACEMENT

    Next, we need to update some information in your Profile to reflect your membership in Xiled Syndicate. Please go to your Profile and select Customize Profile.

    1. First we will be updating your Location to your uniform. It will be as follows: (Insert Community Name)_(Insert Division)_(Insert Rank)
    2. Next, just below in your Bio section, add the following information: 
    3. Recruited by (Gamertag of Recruiter) (Date of Recruiting)
    4. Trained by (Gamertag of Trainer) (Date of Training)

    When you’re done adding this information, please make sure you select ‘Done’ so the information will be saved.

    Check over the information added to make sure it is complete and correct. By now, if you’ve added them as a friend, the information should’ve updated and should be visible.

    • Have them add “Xiled Syndicate” as a friend and notify your General that they have been Background Checked and are ready to be recommended to their respective Community club. 
    • Have them add GEN-COL-MAJ (not required but highly recommended) and the division tag.
    • Tell the member about Upper-Divisional teams and their purpose within the community.
    • Send them a link to join the official Xiled Syndicate Discord server as well as the Division Discord Server - walk them through how to shut off notifications for both (not for your important chats), as both are MANDATORY to join XS.

    Once they are in and walked through the server, provide a link to the XS Code of Conduct and Policies. 

    When you have a chance, please take the time to read over our Code of Conduct and Policies so you, as a member, are better able to take advantage of what the community has to offer as a whole, get a jumpstart on how it is run, and what rules, ethics, and morality we uphold as a community.

    Play with them and introduce them to other members so they will begin to amass a pool of individuals to play with.

    HAPPY GAMING
