This disciplinary step is for minor infractions of the rules or Code of Conduct. Only Majors, Generals, and above may Rank Suspend. Majors and Generals may Rank Suspend for any amount of time up to (and including) one (1) week, or two (2) meetings, whichever comes first. Co-Founders, Founders, Co-Division Leaders, and Division Leaders, or “Division Staff”, may Rank Suspend for any amount of time up to (and including) 2 weeks (14 days), or four (4) meetings, whichever comes first. Directors and Senior Directors may Rank Suspend for any amount of time up to three (3) weeks (21 days), or six (6) meetings, whichever comes first. Owner(s), President, Chief of Operations, and Chief of Staff may Rank Suspend for any amount of time up to (and including) four (4) weeks (30 days), or eight (8) meetings, whichever comes first.
Any member who is RS (Rank Suspended) will be required to recruit (5) new members to the community per week or equivalent to (1) per day.
RS members must also train these new recruits. If the member is under the rank of MSG they will be required to “sit-in” on all training from beginning to end. If the member does not successfully complete these tasks, the process will start over. (NO EXCEPTIONS)
If the member chooses not to comply in a timely manner (3 WEEKS) the member may be removed from the Division (DNH) and will revert to the conditions of the DNH process. RS will follow said member to their new Div. 3 DNH’s will result in an automatic MR.
RS member will also be expected to attend division meetings and read aloud the Xiled Syndicate COC (Code of Conduct)
RS members will also be expected to post meeting notes once a week for whichever division the member belongs to on the Xiled Syndicate Forums.
RS members will also be placed in the “timeout” server on Discord if said member is in the Xiled Syndicate Community Discord server. This will be in effect the entire duration of a member’s RS.
A member on Rank Suspension cannot attend any game nights, nor attend any division activities or tournaments while on RS. (NO EXCEPTIONS)
Once a member has been placed on RS for the 3rd occasion they will face an automatic demotion. (NO EXCEPTIONS)
A member facing his or her 6th RS will be automatically MR (Membership Revoked) and must wait 30 days before they may submit a Membership Revoke appeal through the Xiled Syndicate Court System.
Three strike system: If a member breaks the CoC (mild or serious infractions), he or she will be subject to a “strike”. A strike is valid for 90 days, after 90 days, the strike will no longer count towards the member. Three strikes will result in a Membership Revoke. In certain situations, an automatic MR may be warranted given substantial evidence and serious violations of the XS Code of Conduct. If a member leaves the community because a strike was given, that member is subject to a Membership Revoke.
Only Co-Division Leaders and above may issue a strike against a member with proper evidence. All evidence must be posted in the strike channel in the Xiled HQ chat for strike to be considered viable, if evidence is not supported the strike will not adhere to the person receiving said strike.
DIVISION LEVEL D.N.H.
The Division Leader may choose to “D.N.H.” a member who has broken the Code of Conduct (CoC) or Policies. Only Division Leaders and above may “D.N.H.”. The member which has been “D.N.H.’d” has two days (48 hours) to find a division to transfer to. The member will advise their previous Division Leader of what division they wish to transfer to. At this point the Division Leader will set up the transfer. At no point in time is any member allowed to transfer Divisions without approval from their Division Leader. If, after 2 days, the member is unable to locate a suitable division, the member is then considered a non-member and is Membership Revoked. When a member is D.N.H from a division he or she is immediately removed from the CMS and any division tag(s). A member is only allowed to be D.N.H (2) times from any division. A third D.N.H will result in an automatic Membership Revoke.
REEDUCATION SUSPENSION (RES)
A Reeducation Suspension (RES) is a special type of Rank Suspension enacted by DIRECTORS AND UP upon members that are in good standing within the community but have made the mistake of failing to read or follow certain warnings within the community pertaining to messages sent across the division and/or community Discord, Message Board, or other means, that can last up to a maximum of 30 days. During this period, the member will still be expected to follow the terms and conditions of a typical Rank Suspension including:
Attending division meetings
Taking and posting meeting notes once a week
Reading the CoC (Code of Conduct) aloud at meetings
A member on Re-Education Suspension cannot attend “COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES” such as game nights, workshops, tournaments, or division activities while on RES WITH THE EXCEPTION OF WORKSHOPS SPECIFICALLY STIPULATED UNDER THE TERMS OF THE INDIVIDUAL’S RES.
RES members will be placed in the “Timeout” server on Discord.
Should the member fail to comply with the terms of the RES, they will be subject to the Membership Revoke policy.
MEMBERS WHO HAVE BEEN PLACED ON RES WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR A SUBSEQUENT (SECOND) RES AND WILL REVERT TO THE TERMS OF A MEMBERSHIP REVOKE.
A Membership Revoke is used when a member has severely (or continuously) broken the CoC, to the extent that senior leadership deems them entirely unfit for the community and must be removed immediately. Once a member has had their Membership Revoked, they may apply through the Xiled Syndicate Court System for as a Membership Revoke appeal after thirty (30) days.
The following list includes, but is not limited to, actionable offenses which may result in a member, or members, being Membership Revoked:
Harassment (including sexual)
Threats of Violence (credible)
Information Technology Sabotage
While Xiled Syndicate does support the separation of community business and personal affairs, if an account is to be personal it is expected to not involve Xiled Syndicate affairs. If a personal account is known to belong to a member and is found to be disrespecting, slandering, or defaming another member, it will be subject to the terms outlined in the Xiled Syndicate Policies and is subject to the Code of Conduct.
