niceFX Guild Rules

Updated: 12/13/2020

A Path of Exile Players Guild

These rules apply to everyone representing the [niceFX] guild tag or using the niceFXguild.com website.

As a member or registered user of "niceFXguild.com" or "the niceFX guild" you represent our community and wear our tag. We do not tolerate any form of sexism, racism, antisemitism, bullying, insults or elitist behavior. You earn respect and favors by giving respect and favors, don’t expect them. Be considerate and recognize that this is a video game and we are all here to be entertained and not drawn into political, religious or current event discussions. Humor goes a long way, as long as it does not cross the line. Our guild has players of all genders and sexual orientations and we expect and appreciate your full respect when talking to members directly, in guild chat or globally on Discord. Be yourself, not ignorant.

Being social is really important for the success of the guild. We value players who take an active interest in starting conversations, recruiting new players, commenting on articles, sharing posts about their builds, making videos or images etc. Despite our multi-national background, we are an English-speaking guild and all global communication must be in English so as to include everyone in the conversation. Private and direct messages between players do not.

The on-going primary conversation for the guild will take place on Discord. All permanent communications, or communications that should be kept away from the game should take place on our Discord channel. All questions/comments/discussions that cannot be discussed on Discord, niceFXguild.com, or in game should be directed to Kijo at [email protected]

Never disclose any of your online account information, physical addresses, passwords or emails to anyone. Keep your data private and our connections secure.

EXALTED RULE #1

DO NOT SHARE YOUR PRIVILEGED ACCESS TO AREAS OF THE WEBSITE OR CONTENT HEREIN WITH ANYONE. IP’S ARE CAREFULLY MONITORED AND SESSIONS RESTRICTED BASED ON YOUR DEVICE ID.

There may be sensitive or restricted content on our website that is meant for personal or confidential use and/or access only. As a registered member you may be privy to such materials. Do not talk about it. Do not share it. Follow instructions. Let everyone figure it out for themselves. Enough information has been provided in all cases.

No content will ever be; X-rated, malicious to your computer, sexual in any way, about children, people being harmed or anything malevolent in nature. Asking for, posting, or sharing these types of illicit content will result in an instant permanent ban from the guild and website with no way back.

If there is a link on our website to download content, you can be assured it has been thoroughly checked for malicious content and is 100% safe. This still does not mean you should share or talk about it with anyone. Talking about or sharing privileged content or access publicly will result in a permanent ban from the guild and website.

Once you have connected to the guild website, your IP and DEVICE ID will be recorded and stored for authentication purposes only. Your data will NEVER be shared with anyone. You may only connect to the guild website on (2) devices or IP addresses. If you need to remove a device or your IP has changed you will need to talk to an ADMINISTRATOR.

EXALTED RULE #2

ASK NOT WHAT YOUR GUILD CAN DO FOR YOU, BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR GUILD.

niceFX is meant to be a democracy where every officer's VOTE counts and every members VOICE is heard. Votes in any discussion/decision will be tallied and decided by the winning majority. Any voting will take place on or through the guild website or discord. Once votes are counted and a verdict reached, this will be the final decision.

Since the majority of financial obligations to the guild are and have already been met by Kijo, in the event of; a tie, bias or the unknown, Kijo will have the final veto/say in all things. Voting may take place for miscellaneous reasons and only officers are obligated to vote. All votes count towards the final verdict, so please participate and let your voice be heard.

The guild is expected to grow and evolve over time with new requirements and/or rules. That being said, the players are the lifeblood of our guild and will help guide any new outcome. Make sure to keep up to date with this website and other players. Be kind, pay it forward and keep the stash filled. Anyone in the guild is welcome to recruit new players by bringing them to this website in order to join.

Keeping the stash full, organized, and optimized (quality of items) is essential and ideal. This is extremely helpful to new players as well as experienced players looking to get the most out of their time. This game gives us all some degree of OCD that forces us to meticulously organize shit inside of our own stash, have the same foresight and concern for the guild stash so other members don't have to spend their time on your mess.

If you are trading on someone else's dime, make sure to verify your trade! Do not add you being scammed to the total cost of any loan from another guild member.

Open your maps to other guild members by either announcing your game is open in guild chat or inviting other players directly. If you are an officer of the guild you are expected to host games and help other members complete objectives or advance their build. Be respectful and participate... Say "Hello" when members come online, and say "Welcome" when new members join.

Any/all donations are welcome through the proper channels. We need donations for the website's hosting, new guild stash tabs, additional members and other future possibilities.  If you do make a donation, GGG states that you will be exempt from a guild ban for three months. To donate please contact Kijo in game or email [email protected]

EXALTED RULE #3

SHARE ONLY WHAT YOU ARE WILLING TO LOSE. KEEP YOUR PRICELESS ITEMS TO YOURSELF. DO NOT PUT THE GUILD IN THAT SITUATION.

Please don't put the leader, officers or members of this guild in an amateur and childish situation. Hold on to your priceless items! Do not lend or borrow them to anyone or put the item(s) in the guild stash. Your obligation to other members is to help with strength, currency and/or knowledge. Members need to acquire their own godly items the natural way, through the endless grind.

You should absolutely trust your guild mates, but do not go down the rabbit hole in the first place and guilt anyone into lending you anything besides the knowledge and partial currency donation to your acquisition. If you give another player an item in the guild, and they fail to return it - you are fucked. No one in the guild or from GGG support will retaliate or aid in your debacle.

If the situation escalates or the guild is made aware, we will vote to determine who, if not both players, will be banned.

ACCESS, BANS, LEAVING/JOINING THE GUILD

DO NOT GET YOUR SELF BANNED. LEAVE THE GUILD RESPECTABLY.

"niceFX" does not condone RMT (Real Money Transactions). If the guild is made aware of a member talking positively about or otherwise promoting RMT, linking to RMT sites, or participating in RMT, they will be permanently banned in game and discord. We will also report your account to GGG. Discussions pertaining to RMT theoretically, in the past or future will not be tolerated. We do not give warnings on this matter.

"niceFX" does not condone scamming or thievery. If you try to scam people during trades or participate in scams or stealing from members or non-members while wearing the "niceFX" tag you will be permanently banned in game and discord. We do not give warnings on this matter.

Officers and members in good standing are free to join and leave without reprisal. Officers that leave or are removed from the guild for inactivity will lose their current stature and must rejoin as members. Any officer not showing activity in game for over 60 days (2 months) will be demoted to a member. Any member not showing activity in game for over 60 days (2 months) will be removed from the guild for "inactivity". Officers and Members that are removed for inactivity are NOT REMOVED FROM DISCORD and can come back at anytime.

Players who consistently exhibit shitty behavior or do not give back to the guild will be slated for removal. Any member(s) determined to be a detriment to this guild will be banned permanently from the guild and website.

By using this website, joining the guild and being part of this community you have gained access to more than you know. This is an elite membership, treat it that way. In almost all cases, if you are removed from this guild... It is forever.

This will be displayed each time you login to the website. Alternatively, you can see the guild status on the home page.

Right now the maximum is 250 players.

None. The guild has been fully paid off. If you want to hold a cash prize contest or run a private server, talk to Kijo.

Access levels are shown by the "♦" diamond symbol. Stash tabs with "♦♦♦" three diamonds or no diamonds are locked and can only be accessed by Kijo. Officers can access tabs with "♦♦" two diamonds and anyone may access tabs showing "♦" one diamond. Guild tab permissions change often so pay attention.

It is not acceptable to pillage the guild stash of 50+ items in one sitting/session. Please take what you need when you need it. Don't take guild stashed items for your own profit. Try to put in as much as you take out. Players who only take and never put back will be marked for shitty behavior. Repeated offenses will result in removal from the guild. Only items in the ﴾ PURGE ﴿ tab can be taken indiscriminately.

If you need anything from the guild stash you can't access personally, just ask someone that can or announce what you need in guild chat. If you need something and no one is online, email [email protected] or send a message globally in Discord.

Playing Path of Exile a lot is a good starter. Players must be at least 18 years of age and must agree and accept that there will be mature language in chat. Players should exhibit a congenial attitude towards players in and outside of the guild. Officers have a grace period of 2 months of inactivity, then will be demoted, then have another 60 days before removal. Members have a grace period of 2 months of inactivity and will be removed from the guild. If you have special circumstances (school) please contact Kijo and let him know. Players that are removed from the guild for inactivity are not removed from discord and are always welcome back.
