    My new guild I will be starting soon! The name of the guild will be called "Futility". As the leader of this guild I will give myself a title of "The Stupid That Just Doesn't Go Away!"

    You may ask,"Lebrun? Will this be a one-man guild?" To that I say no! For all those that wish to join my guild will be given the rank of emmissary and the title of "I'm with Stupid!"

    You may also ask: "Lebrun? Whats the difference between your guild and all the others?"

    To that I say that mine will not have the following:

    1) No guild page and forum that holds no real value other than post counts.​
    2) There will be no exclusive,snobbish inner-circle meetings!​
    3)There are no guild colors or uniforms you will be forced to wear! Wear what you want,when you want and how you want!​
    4)There will be no people that hold any type of ban-stick that lords over you with unquestioned authority!​

    If this sounds like the place for you! Then join the mass of silenced voices that yearn to speak out! Join me in my guild! Futility!! Huzzah!!


    I am Lebrun,and I approve of this message.

    My suggestion... enjoy the new content and forget the past.


    About guilds... I found a tiny detail that was alot of fun.

    If you have a huge alliance, where the players can move freely from guild to guild within the alliance... any gm that acts in a more tyrannical way or shows favoritism... his/her guild quietly becomes void of members...
    Instant humility and it promotes a sense of responsability and equity...

    PS: I really love your last sentence... reminds me of my 12 years of UO.

    In that case I would like to introduce my new guild. It is called
    Way Too Frazzled or WTF for short.

    If you choose to become a member in WTF you will enjoy the following benefits.

    No uniforms, in fact, you need not wear anything at all.
    No rules-Do as you please with no repercussions for your actions or words.
    No meetings or planned events, you are all on your own from day one.

    Feel free to drop in and relax in our spacious Guildhall. You will rarely see another member, and those who may drop in are guaranteed to never be helpful or have a good word for you.

    So sign up today, and be sure to send me a message in game. Soon you will be exclaiming with pride.

    WTF!

    That's WTF, a guild you can never believe in.

    My name is Aedon Durreah and I am apathetic to this message.

    Aedon, Guilds with no heirarchy can work and have before just because there may never have been one on catskills doesn't mean they don't exist. And they don't generate hate from people because there is no advancement. Just because it's different you immediately went off and judged it as stupid, when in fact if you didn't have anything nice to say you probably should have kept your opinion to yourself instead of being mean about it.

    Good luck Lebrun.

    SERIOUSLY!??

    ...And if you had any sense of humor, you may have seen the joke in all this. I have known Lebrun for a long time now, and I think he knows a joke when he reads it, just as I did. Also, if you had any knowledge of what the source in all this is you may one day come to an understanding as to the intent of others. I suggest you heed your own advise. If you have nothing nice or relevant to say....

    Careful there,Scarst. Encouraging me is against a certain forums rules,as that forums rules change from member to member. You may receive smackage from a ban stick.

    I honestly do not plan to start a guild named Futility. Why did I make this post and why did I offer a bounty a couple of months ago? Because I am a very brooding fiance to "Ashleigh". Her feelings were hurt and she,and I felt that she was not treated fairly at all and was singled out and targeted by that forums powers-that-be. Of course I am going to come to her defence. Like the Lynard Skynard song says: "Cause you're are messin' with my woman there,and I am a man that cares"

    As to the rp community,I can take it or leave it,but Ashleigh. She has always enjoyed to roleplay in Catskills. She has found it harder and harder to play how she would like. She has always enjoyed playing the dark,evil villan character. Lately though,she has found that close to impossible.In Catskills RP everyone is an "indistructable superhero",which means,in many cases,her toon (most times a vampire) is shunned IC and sometimes shunned OOC(when she would attempt to rp as a blue hi-lite).

    There should be rules,but they should be enforced unevenly and with extreme bias. If a very close friend breaks the rules,just give him a "Not Safe For Work" title and both of you can giggle,and "give a warning" the one that complained.

    Maybe the Rp community needs a constitution... and those guilds failing to comply lose highlight...

    it works everywhere else...

    Its taken me a few days to finally post this...hoping it would all work out in the end but...

    Isn't it important to remember that the past is just that? Its in the past and things cannot be changed, but its more important to forgive and forget.

    Ok, im done. *grin*

    I,of course,know that the past can not be changed. I also know that the ones that offended Ashleigh are still in a leadership role and hold some influence in the RP community thru the use of a forum.That,unlike the past,can be changed. As to the idea of forgiving and forgetting....I do forgive ones that ask for forgiveness,and to the ones that don't...I don't.

    Article I

    Constitutional Mechanism

    Section I

    Summarization of Events

    In the course of the betterment of a player-run Role-Playing community within the Ultima Online shard known as Catskills, we, the RP community, strive to ensure that all participants are having fun, yet following the rules set forth in this document. The following document pertains only to accepted and bound guilds of the RPRing community on Catskills.

    Section II

    Amendments and Abolishments

    This constitution will be constructed so that future precedents will allow for the smooth re-construction of this document in the case that new issues threaten the stability of our RP environment. In the course that any ONE guild leader feels a section of the Constitution needs an amendment (change/addition), he/she will create a post, privately, in the Inner-Council forum, discussing the following:

    -Date and time
    -Conflict at hand
    -Guilds/persons involved
    -Solution/prevention for future
    -Poll to vote on issue

    After the issue is presented, the Inner-Council members will vote and discuss alterations to the amendment, and, in general, a consensus will be reached among all.

    If the issue passes, then the constitution will be edited and (the change) archived. From here, the constitution will be sent off to all participating websites/forums for all to view.

    If the issue is rejected, then the constitution will remain un-changed, and the issue will not be allowed to be re-posted, for a re-vote for at least a period of 15 days. After this barrier-period (to prevent congressional spamming/filibustering), the issue may be re-voted on, re-presented, but ONLY if it pertains to a new set of events that merely follow a similar path as the previous one. For example: "John kills Bob and loots his Halberd. Bob wants his Halberd back and feels Halberds should not be lootable items. The issue is presented and rejected--John gets to keep Bob's Halberd. 15 days later (a new set, not the old), John kills Bob (or even another person), and loots his Halberd. Said victim wants his/her Halberd back and feels Halberds should not be lootable items. Now the issue may be presented again.

    In addition to all amendments/abolishments postings, they must contain coherent evidence (screenshots, video, several trusted eye-witnesses, etc.). Without such evidence, the issue will be revoked immediately and removed from the forum.

    Section III

    Orderly Conduct

    All postings and replies to matters pertaining to the RPRing community, within and outside of the Inner-Council forums, must abide by the following rules:

    -Postings must be coherent and legible (please use good English grammar)
    -Postings must not contain flagrant use of curse words
    -Postings may not publicly defame, or slander any member without proper proof
    -Postings may not contain racism against color, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sex, sexual preference, or any other identifying characteristic
    -Postings may not be direct and un-needed flames on certain groups or individuals
    -Postings may not contain useless spam
    -Postings may not contain links to viruses or other illegal content
    -Postings may not contain pictures of pornography or any other illegal content
    -Postings may not give out other peoples personal information (phone number, address, name, etc.)

    Postings that do contain the above materials will be deleted, and a warning will be issued to the offender.

    Article II

    Rules

    Section I

    Rules of Engagement

    Before engagement from one party onto another (whether it be individualized or in a group)--the offensive party MUST RP into the battle somehow. Parties are NOT allowed to immediately kill another member of the RP community without having RPed into the battle, (this does not mean, "Leave now or die." *attack*). For example, the Orcs RP into battle when anyone encroaches upon their land (which to them is a serious offense). The Orcs will chase the offender and yell "Tribuyte!", and if some decent form of tribute is not paid, then the encroaching party will be attacked. If tribute is paid, they are allowed to leave immediately, alive. Similar forms of RP engagement must be enacted by all guilds--depending on their alignment, it may need to be more complicated or more peaceful, etc.

    Typically it is considered rude to attack a RP member who is AFK, but if worse comes to worse, they are allowed to be slain, however this is only as a last resort.

    Section II

    Looting

    After a fellow RP member has been slain, the only items allowed to be looted are the following (personal rules may vary for each guild (meaning they don't HAVE to loot these items, but are merely allowed to.)):

    -Bandages
    -Reagents
    -Potions
    -Weapons
    -Empty bags
    -Gold
    -Silver
    -Jewels
    -Armor (only if it belongs to one of your previous guild mates)

    No other items are to be looted--and, in fact, each guild should attempt to SAVE the other items from being looted by other non-RP parties.


    Section III

    Death

    After a RP member is killed, he/she should NOT be Resurrection-Killed. He/She is allowed to safely gather His/Her belongings (only after the slaying party has fully looted what He/She is allowed to loot). The dead party member MUST remain naked (in the case that we have no death-robes on this Shard), and must not re-mount or put on ANY items for at least 10 minutes.

    For these 10 minutes, the victim may not say anything, except for "OooOoOo", and they must RP as a dead person. They may not engage in battle or speak.

    After the 10 minutes have passed, they may re-arm and re-mount and may speak again and re-engage in battle.

    Members who are seen naked, not talking, or only uttering "OOoo" are NOT to be engaged--however, if they do begin to talk, or engage, or re-equip items during this 10 minute timer, they ARE allowed to be attacked and slain.

    Section IV

    Cease Engagement

    In the state that a member is in the middle of an engagement, He/She may be allowed to yell the full words, "CEASE ENGAGEMENT!", or for an Orc, something along the lines of "Ceeze de Fytun!". These words should NOT be used lightly. These words, after being uttered, mean that no one is to attack the said person uttering the words. These words should only be said when a person is having a REAL-LIFE emergency. After the persons says these words, they are to IMMEDIATELY leave the area (if they can). If they do not manage to leave the area within 2 minutes, they are allowed to be considered AFK, and re-engaged.

    Note: if one party of a group of one faction of RPers decides to call a Cease Engagement--it only applies to the exact member calling it, therefore, battle will continue as it previously had begun between the other two factions parties.

    If it is discovered that a member abuses this Cease Engagement rule, then a warning will be issued with the future punishment of a possible ostracization from the RP community.

    If the words Cease Engagement are uttered (anyone on the same screen), is required to stop attacking that person. If they continue, they will also be issued a warning.

    Section V

    Non-RP Intervention

    In the event that during a scheduled (or non-scheduled), RP war is taking place, if ANY non RP members (people who do not Role Play) enter the battlefield, then a full Cease Engagement automatically goes into effect for ALL members of ALL parties present. All RP members should work together to expel the intervening non-RPer and slay them. After the threat is dealt with, the previous battle may presume under orderly conditions (do not immediately begin attacking after the non-RP threat has been eliminated, but rather, one party state "begin in 1 minute...etc.")

    Section VI

    General Conduct

    The general conduct expected from each RP member is to be for the overall betterment of the RP community as a whole. While certain RP guilds may Role Play hating another guild--they are not allowed to hatefully conduct actions that are uncalled for. This includes leading off bonded-mares, gating members away to random areas of the world, or not offering resurrections to dead members.

    Each member should be treated, at heart, as a fellow comrade. Resurrections should be offered to all slain members (if time allows, and battle is not still going on).

    Each member should attempt to guard the loot of fellow RP members, and should assist them in re-attaining it and returning to their homes safely (if time allows, and battle is not still going on).
    Section VII

    Staying in Character

    All RP members are required to stay in character at ALL times. This means no speach that refers to out-of-game-events such as sports, news, weather etc. No abbreviations should be used. No discussion of in-game mechanics is allowed (40 str points, plus 10 AR...etc.).

    Members should not break character under any circumstance, no matter how angered they are. They should not spew out curse words in spams at other parties.

    Offenders of this will be warned and dealt with as outlined further below.

    Article III

    Consequences/Punishments

    Section I

    Levels of Offenses

    Various offenses will be placed within certain parameters, or levels. There are three levels of offenses: Misdemeanors, Felonies, and Treasons.

    Misdemeanors will comprise the following actions:

    -Small breaks in character
    -Un-orderly conduct
    -Failure to RP into battle
    -Failure to assist fellow members

    Felonies will comprise the following actions:

    -Looting certain items
    -Repeatedly spamming/going out of character
    -Resurrection killing
    -Breaking "death" character
    -Failing to abide by the Cease Engagement rules
    -Repeated offenses of Misdemeanors

    Treasons will comprise the following actions:

    -Conspiracy to bring down a guild
    -Fighting along side non RP members
    -Giving away secrets to non RP members
    -Repeated offenses of Felonies

    Section II

    Punishments

    Misdemeanors will result in warnings and correction by guild-masters.

    Felonies will result in harsher warnings, correction by guild-masters and punishments from guild-masters such as collecting resources, temporary banning from certain territories/and/or playing on that character. These punishments must be recorded by the guild-master and posted in the Inner-Council forums to ensure that the punishments have been executed correctly.

    Treasons will result in Inner-Council voting on the punishment for the offending member(s). If the offense is a first time offense, or not very severe, then maybe a temporary ban of 1 week will be enacted on that member. If the offense is a second time offense, or very severe, then it may require permanent banning from the entire RP community.

    Section III

    Traitors

    All traitors (members who have been permanently expelled from the RP community), will have their character names posted in a permanent list. These members are NOT to be accepted into the ranks of ANY guild. If they are, then the entire guild will face possible removal, or punishment from the RP community. (Removal, or punishment for an entire guild will only result if they fail to comply with the requests of the RP community (removing the said traitor from their guild immediately)).

    Traitors are to be Killed-On-Sight by all parties. Traitors are allowed to be resurrection killed (if they continue to grief), and they may be dry-looted of all belongings.

    The protections and laws established within this Constitution no longer protect traitors.

    Article IV

    Diplomacy

    Section I

    Alliances, Neutralities, and Enemies

    All guilds have certain alignments and stances towards other RP guilds. A record of these stances must be recorded and placed within the Inner-Council forum so that there is no question as to whether, for example, the Orcs are allied with TcD, or whether they are neutral with TcD.

    Changes in alignment/diplomacy must be announced within the Inner-Council and also must be publicly announced so that ALL members are aware of which guilds are warring which guilds.

    Further more, ALL guilds that are apart of this community are required to mechanically "war" eachother. This means they are to go orange to eachother, however, this does not mean they are actually at war with eachother. Allies, neutrals, and enemies all remain orange to eachother. This allows to enhance the RP environment, so that, guilds may change their alliances with ease by allowing for engagements by all parties.

    Section II

    Accepting New Guilds

    Naturally, new guilds will wish to join the ranks of the RP community, and herein, they are required to first petition, publicly, on the RpRing forums, a request to do so.

    Guilds requesting to join will be interpreted through a private topic in the Inner-Council forum, where a vote will be cast on whether or not the guild should be accepted among our community.

    The following information MUST be presented within the Inner-Council on the topic of new guilds:

    -Full guild name
    -Full guild abbreviation
    -Type of guild (creature)
    -Alignment (good or evil)
    -Summary of guilds actions/goals
    -Current members
    -Territories/location
    -Personal rules

    If the guild is voted to be accepted, then the leaders of the guild will be granted access into the Inner-Council forums, and they are required to sign this Constitution and abide by its laws. Failure to sign the constitution will result in a revoking of the guilds acceptance amongst the RP community here on Catskills.

    If a guild is voted on, and rejected, then a formal reply will be sent to them outlining what changes they need to make in-order for them to be accepted. After the guild alters themselves, then they may re-apply and be re-voted on to enter the community.

    Article V

    Conclusion

    Section I

    Binding


    Herein, all signers of this document will be bound to follow, expand, and uphold its contents. All signers will be required to teach the contents of this document to their members, and will be required to enforce the laws amongst their own guilds.

    I FEAR NO BAN STICK! haha

    If I get banned from a forum I get banned from a forum.

    Truthfully I only join forums at request (such as a guild forum) or for the benefit of seeing what threads have new posts in them.

    Guild leader meetings are a good thing, not bad. It means that those that hold the ears of so many players are making an effort to work together,. Once a meeting of this sort s held, the out come is presented to the members at large for discussion and suggestions.

    I think you will find that this is a normal process not only in games, but in business as well. GM never invites all the UAW to a meeting of the corporate heads.

    Well I thank you for the invite Pitr, but none of the above holds any interest for me. I do not like the new expansion. Most of my time is devoted to the game I enjoy playing, LOTRO.

    I will always have a soft place in my heart for UO, but when a game becomes more a chore then a pleasure, it is high time to move on.

    So says a guild leader? I am sure Pol Pot and Hitler thought it was a good thing they were leaders in their respective country as well.
    You know as well as I do thats not how the last couple of guild leader meetings went.It was more of "This is how it's going to be" meetings where the GL's were a type of tribunal where all decisions were final and above reproach.

    ...and look at what shape GM is in now.See the connection? :D

    LOL, no I do not see the connection, I do think that had GM allowed the UAW in all their meetings GM would have gone under years sooner.

    And I have the best sort of being a GM. I do not recruit folks into y guild. It is a private family thing.

    In Life Lebrun there are rules and regulations. Not every person is included in everything that goes on. The event you are going on about happened many months ago, and should have been laid to rest or taken up in a mature conversation with the parties concerned. And you are not one of the parties involved in the incident.


    If you, or whoever does not wish to be in a guild with rules and regulations, do not join one. It is never good to try to push yourself on someone.

    This is a game,and not "real life" and as such all members,regardless of title,should have at least some say in the direction that the RP community goes. I know that idea will stick in the kraw with some that want the few to decide things for the many.




    The meetings happened months ago but those still in charge are still present and policies that led to the meeting are still in place. Nothing has changed.


    Rules and regulations are all well and fine when enforced equally. *glares at the one that holds the ban stick*

    The meeting was for guild leaders only. I am sorry that you and your lady cannot deal with that. I do not know the full story as to what got her banned from the forums, but I do know she was given countless warnings.

    There is little more to be said other then that. Beating this dead horse will get nothing accomplished. She should never have tried insisting that she be allowed in the meeting. Had she waited as other members of guilds did for the information to be passed on, I am sure she would have been as equally unimpressed with the outcome of the meeting as I was.

    *chuckles* Is it a big ban stick?

    This case is about a person who violated posted forum rules repeatedly, they were warned repeatedly including the post the violation took place in where applicable, a quote of the rule broken and a request that the behavior stop. Instead of adhering to posted rules for the forums they decided they were more important than any other player who posts on the forum and that the rules did not apply to them. After several months of continued moderation with no results the accounts for this person were banned.

    After they were banned, the person in question repeatedly tried to create new accounts to harass the board moderators. At this point it was decided to IP ban the person in question and since then the drama regarding them has stopped on our forums and been brought here to Stratics for the entertainment of those who read the Catskills forum.

    They say love is blind, in this case I think it truly is. Lebrun you can say all you want, you can post all you want about me, you can continue to offer bounties for my head if I go to Fel or if someone Highlighted to me wants to kill me repeatedly when I log in. Your personal vendetta and harassment against me will have no effect on my game time, my posting time, or clear your fiance of any wrong doing.

    Enjoy the attention, while it lasts.

    This is why I would rather have my whangdanger hit with a hammer than join a guild.

    Delusions....increased sense of self-import....and sheer lunacy.....

    A flippin constitution? A code of conduct for the meatshields....time was wasted on this? I'm thinking of the stuff I could have done in real life while this nonsense was being created.

    Next time a sensation forms in your nethers about some rule that needs written to control a bunch of people who just want to play.....go outside instead. K?

    If you choose to join a group/guild your character must abide by the rules as set forth. No one forces anyone to join. If a person does not want the rules, solo play is the best option. Or as you said, go outside instead. Do not break rules you agreed to on joining and then expect little to no consequences for your actions.

    It seems like much ado about nothing to me. If you mistust your guild mates so....why let them in? Doesn't the game have rules of conduct?

    We give them the chance to prove themselves. Trust is freely given until a person violates that trust. This person did not violate any Guild rules. We are speaking of actions on a private forum.

    Rules are laid out and agreed to when joining this forum. Once a violation of the TOS has taken place, the leader of the boards tried to work with the person to solve the issue. This proved a futile effort and she was banned. She took her fight to the next level, and her IP was banned. It is as simple as that.

    As far as the GM only meeting goes. Yes,, she wanted to be in the meeting even though the leader had a representative in the meeting. When meetings of this sort are held the number allowed within the chat room must be limited to insure some sense of order.

    No one forced her to join the board, or to agree to the boards TOS. She did so of her own free will. She then decided that she was not to be held to the same rules being applied to others.

    This is an issue that should be long dead, but for some folks pettiness always wins out over reason.

    Ashleigh's list of rules that she has "broken" in that forum:
    1)She was wanting to post a disagreement about something pubicly,instead she sent a private message to Phaen sharing her feelings about the subject. It was too rantish for Phaen. Warning One.​

    2)Ashleigh didn't want the forum give host to a GL only meeting and said as much. I am not sure if this incured the wraith of Phaen as to giving a "warning" but I am sure that it didn't score points either.Warning Two?​

    3)One day Ashleigh came across a "nsfw" post by another user. She asked that next time that the "not safe for work" tag be used. She was then accused of trying to play the part of a Mod. The poster of the nsfw post? Oh he got an unique title in that forum. So much for enforcing the rules equally huh? Warning Three.​

    4)I guess this is the straw that broke the camels back. Ashleigh "broke a posted? rule" by questioning why players from the Euro shard can not post in RP Portal. What response did Ashleigh get? A banning.​

    No,she made the mistake of feeling she was just as important as the guild leaders and the admin and mods in that forum. I guess thats an "opps" on her part.

    That statement is so wrong it's funny.If I wanted to truely harrass you and the mods I could have with ease. You would have had to stay up 24/7 to keep blocking accounts I could make via proxy ip addresses.

    Actually,Phaen,I have kept your screen name out of any stratics discussion I have posted and I have not targeted you directly by name in public. The bounty thing is over with. I only used that ply to garner attention to how you run things in your forum.I knew the ones that were asking for bounty info were maybe your alts or members of your guild.

    And just to think,I gave away a very nice plot that a close friend gave me,so you,Phaen,could make a base of operations here in Catskills. If only I could turn back time.....

    I never used a name, and you yourself said it was your fiance in a previous post. Lebrun you are changing the facts to support your behavior.

    http://vboards.stratics.com/showpost.php?p=1420052&postcount=14

    I never listed her offenses because those are private but your list is laughable and not the rules she broke. I hope she appreciates the your dragging her through the mud here publicly though.

    You posted links to our forum, Private forums I run. Anyone can go there and see who the admins are. I know so because like you I've been getting PM's asking for clarification about what happened, what the person I banned did etc. like it was a car wreck on the side of the road.

    I think this issue should never have been brought to this forum. It is a petty scream for attention and pity for a person that has broken the rules of a PRIVATE forum.

    Phaen, I think that it is best to not respond further to this obvious baiting. I do not think the members of the Catskills forums need to hear this crap any more then those on the RP forums did.

    Lebrun, I still like you man, but you are allowing a personal relationship to cloud your mind to the reality of the situation. I wish you well in your future, and hope that you can find some happiness.

    I will now go back to posting on the Private forums.

    Take care all.

    Issues with posting/bannings/whatever on a private forum outside of stratics are best discussed there or via ICQ or email. This is not the place.
