Purpose of Handbook

This book is an abbreviated encapsulation of Xiled Syndicate’s general membership policies, practices, and benefits. The handbook is for information purposes only. This handbook does not and is not intended to address every possible membership situation. It is important that you read, understand, and follow the provisions in the handbook. As Xiled Syndicate continues to grow, we hope that these principles will serve each new person joining our ranks. If you are new to Xiled Syndicate, welcome. Although the goals in this book are important, it’s really your ideas, talent, and energy that will keep Xiled Syndicate shining in the years ahead.

Mission Statement: Xiled Syndicate is constantly striving to enhance the online gaming environment without regards to skill, race, gender or personal beliefs. Our goal, for over the past eight years, has been to become a hub for all types of players. Whether they are competitive or casual gamers, Xiled Gaming Network is a place to call home while allowing members to express their individual talents and passions for video games.

Kaizen is a Japanese word meaning Consistent, and Never-Ending improvement. This is the Xiled Syndicate mantra. Xiled Syndicate Will be the best gaming community, and will always strive to improve. Thanks for being here. Let’s make great things.

 

Your First Day
Ah, so you’ve completed the Recruitment / Training Process, and you’re finally an official member of XS. Congratulations, and welcome!
This is a unique community with and incredibly different way of doing things compared to other organization in our genre. This is what makes Xiled Syndicate the greatest multi-platform gaming community today. However, it can take some getting used to. This handbook was created by people who’ve been where you are now, and desire to make your first few weeks here as easy as possible.

 

Xiled Syndicate Facts That Matter
Xiled Syndicate is self-funded. Since the begining we have always paid for things ourselves. The majority of the amazing tools this community utilizes was funded by the members and leadership within. Our organization generates commision from Sponsors based on sales using our promo-codes. We also use advertisement on our website that generates a small amount of money each day. Using practices like this along with donations and merchandise sales is what makes all this possible. Leadership of Xiled Syndicate invest a lot of time, money and energy to make this all possible.

Xiled Syndicate is not your normal gaming organization. Since our existence we have strived to be more. As most gaming organizations tend to utilize a “Team” structure with a small staff and a select base of members. Our organization utilizes a “Community” structure with a extensive staff and massive base of members. We are a gaming community.

Xiled Syndicate is not for everyone. Not all players will enjoy what we have to offer here. Our primary goal is and always will be the creation of friendships and social experiences. Of course we love to win, but that is not the primary goal here. This is a family enviroment, there will be good days and bad days.

Xiled Syndicate has haters. Surprisingly one of the toughest parts of success is finding peers happy for you. But as they say, “Anyone can get pity. Jealousy you have to earn.” We’re what is considered a “progressive community” which means we do not practice hostile activities such as Trash Talk, Harrassment or Cyber Crimes. Not all groups are like us, some see your success and desire to cause harm. These are what we call “The Blacklisted”. We block all contact with these people for the protection on ourselves and members.

Rank Up! or don’t…
Hierarchy is great for maintaining predictability and repeatability. It simplifies planning and makes it easier to control a large group of people from the top down, whichs why military organizations rely on it so heavily. However, here we do not utilize our Rank Structure for the purpose of “Control” we do so to guide one another to success and offer more to the members. Our community has spent the better part of the last decade going out of its way to recruit the most unique individuals gaming today and even further to promote the most intelligent, innovative, talented people on Earth. We want innovators, and that means maintaining an environment where they’ll flourish. This community is ours to steer—toward opportunities and away from risks. Together we have the power to ensure our organization survives. If you’re thinking to yourself, “Wow, that sounds like a lot of responsibility,” you’re right. That’s why accepting promotions is the single most important thing you will ever do at Xiled Syndicate. Any time you accept a position, you need to ask yourself not only if you’re talented or collaborative but also if you’re capable of literally determing the gaming experience of others. No one will ever force you to accept a position, that is soley your choice.

Where Will You Take Us?
Your community will be a different community a few years from now because you are going to change it for the better. We can’t wait to see where you take us. The experiences that you decide to create for future members are the things that define us. Whether it’s a new squad, expansion to a new game, new policy that helps players, a new form of technology that allows us to clone high performing members.. or (more likely) something nobody’s thought of yet—we can’t wait to see what kind of future you choose to build at Xiled Syndicate!

DISCIPLINARY POLICY

-RANK SUSPENSION

This disciplinary step is for minor infractions of the rules or Code of Conduct. Only Majors, Colonels, Generals, and above may Rank Suspend. Majors, Colonels, and Generals may Rank Suspend for any amount of time up to (and including) one (1) week, or two (2) meetings, whichever comes first.

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 trainings 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 the 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 squad 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 squad or 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 squad 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.

Squad Level D.N.H.
If a General is having trouble with a member, the General may “D.N.H.” the particular member. The General must advise the Co-Founder that the member is D.N.H from the squad.

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 or squad (in another Division) to transfer to. The member will advise their previous Division Leader of what squad and 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 squad/division, the member is then considered a non-member and is Membership Revoked. When a member is D.N.H from a squad/division he or she is immediately removed from the CMS and any squad/division tag(s). A member is only allowed to be D.N.H (2) times from any division or squad. 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 the COO, CoS, or CPO 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 squad/division meetings
Taking and posting meeting notes once a week
Reading the CoC (Code of Conduct) aloud at meetings
Recruiting and training 5 members per week
A member on Re Education Suspension cannot attend game nights, workshops, tournaments, or squad activities while on 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.

Membership Revoked
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. However, as the member (or members) in question do not represent an immediate or severe threat to the community, Blacklisting is not warranted. 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.

Blacklisting
Blacklisting is an action reserved for the most severe and egregious of behaviors/threats against Xiled Syndicate (in part, whole, or digitally), any of its individual members, or collectively.

A Blacklist may only be implemented by an Owner(s), COO, CoS, or CPO as recommended by the Senior Director(s). Members are strictly prohibited from any contact, real or otherwise, with any Blacklisted individuals, communities, groups, or clans, including on a member’s “Friends” list. The following list includes, but is not limited to, actionable offenses which may result in a member, or members, being Blacklisted:

Harassment (including sexual)
Threats of Violence (credible)
Information Technology Sabotage
Stalking
Felonious Activity

Discord Participation Policy

All members of XS will be required to have access, in some part, to the Discord App for the sake of proper communication within and without the Division. This is accessible through any smart phone, PC, laptop, or even via Microsoft Edge (on the XBox One) or other browsers (if only to the extent of viewing).

 

DIVISION SPLIT POLICY
For a Division Split to occur, the division must have the following:

Must be flagship for at least one week (there are exceptions).
A minimum of 500 members.
A full complement of Division Staff.
A minimum of 6 squads (including a Junior Squad).
At least 90% of the division must be verified to be in the Xiled Syndicate Club.
The existing Division Leader must compile and submit a complete list, or roster, of which staff will transfer to the new division. This list must include which squads will stay in the division and which ones will go to the new division.
Once these requirements are met, the Division Leader will then await approval by the division’s Director and the COO. The COO will then appoint a Senior Director and provide full access to the division’s tags/CMS to audit and verify the division’s membership. Upon completion of the audit and verification, the existing Division will be deemed “Flagship” and a new Division Tag will be created and assigned. As a result, the split may commence immediately.

The Division Leader (of the existing Division), may be promoted to Director (space providing). The Co-Division Leader may choose to be promoted to Division Leader of the existing division or to transfer to the new division as Division Leader, whereas the Founder would then be promoted to Division Leader of the division not chosen.
Should the Division Leader of the existing division not be promoted to Director, the Co-Division Leader would then transfer to the new division as its Division Leader, and the Founder to Co-Division Leader.
Discord Participation Policy

All members of Xiled Syndicate will be required to have access, in some part, to the Discord App for the sake of proper communication within and without the Division. This is accessible through any smart phone, PC, laptop, or even via Microsoft Edge (on the XBox One) or other browsers (if only to the extent of viewing).

Any member of Xiled Syndicate wishing to have or create their own server:
– Has to get permission from their Division Leader. The Division Leader will then notify their Director, which will in turn take the request to the CCM (XGN BlueDream 7).
– The CCM will create the requested server and setup all security permissions. Following this, they will continue to monitor the server for the safety of its members.

 

EQUAL GAMING OPPORTUNITY POLICY
An important part of Xiled Syndicate’s mission is to provide equal gaming opportunities to all gamers. Discrimination against anyone, including but not limited to game (play/skill), race, age, gender bias, sexual orientation, gender orientation, religious affiliation, national origin, disability, political affiliation, gamertag, any other personal interest, or investment is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Xiled Syndicate strives to provide a community environment which is fair and equal to all its members.

 

FLAGSHIP
When a division reaches 500 members, a Division Leader can begin preparing to split his/her division. To split a division, they must receive Flagship first by asking a Director.

The Director will approach the COO and ask if that specific division may split. They will both evaluate all the officers within that division. If all is approved, the Director may start the Flagship process, making sure all squads have all officers in place, and all CMS and tags are the same. They will then go through each tag and make sure all bios and uniforms of all squad members are correct, otherwise they may be removed.

 

If the division falls under 450 members, they will lose their Flagship status and have to reapply. The division will have one week to get any removed members corrected and back on CMS, or their numbers back to 500 to receive Flagship once again.

It is mandatory that:

At least 90% of the division are verified as members in the Xiled Syndicate Club
Every uniform must be the same according to Xiled Syndicate standards
All staff positions must be filled before splitting
Flagship must be obtained before splitting
There are some exceptions at Xiled Syndicate Senior Leadership’s discretion!
To receive flagship, a division must have a full division staff. All squads must have full staff, and all members’ bios, mottos, and uniforms must be correct.

 

GAMING VIOLENCE POLICY
Xiled Syndicate believes in maintaining a safe and healthy gaming experience by promoting an open, friendly, and supportive gaming environment for all its members. Violence and/or threats of violence have no place in our community. Violence and/or threats are never an effective solution to any problem. Members are expected to immediately report any violation(s) of this policy to their superior officer(s). Any member found threatening another member, will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including, Rank Suspension, Membership Revocation, and/or Blacklisting from Xiled Syndicate!

 

HARASSMENT/ INTIMIDATION POLICY
Xiled Syndicate will not tolerate harassment or intimidation of our members in any situation. Harassment is governed by state laws, which vary from state to state, but is usually defined as a course of conduct which annoys, threatens, intimidates, alarms, or puts a person in fear of their safety. Harassment is unwanted, unwelcome, and uninvited behavior that demeans, threatens, or offends the individual. Intimidation includes, but is not limited to, knowingly putting another person (or persons) in fear of harm to one’s physical, mental, emotional, or personal loss. Additionally, intimidating any Xiled Syndicate member in any way that holds their membership, rank, or title hostage in lieu of inappropriate or non governed performance is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Example: threatening or intimidation for more than the minimum rank or membership requirements is strictly prohibited. Violations to this policy may result in severe disciplinary action(s), including but not limited to, Blacklisting of your membership. Additionally, you may even face criminal prosecution to the fullest extent of the law, should the situation provide for it.

 

INACTIVITY POLICY
We encourage all Xiled Syndicate members to remain active within the community in order to keep their memberships active. Please be sure to log in and take part in Xiled Syndicate activities and meetings at least twice a month.

Inactive members may be subject to removal for consecutive inactivity during any two-week (14 days) period for the following:

No member should be on the CMS/squad tag if their gamertag has not been active for 15 days.
Non-attendance of squad activities.
Failure to communicate to your Squad/Division Staff, or being offline.
Failure to attend meetings. NOTE: Members who are removed for inactivity but wish to return, must appeal as a Membership Reinstate through the Xiled Syndicate Court System in the Xiled Syndicate forums. The member must be out of any other community for a minimum of 30 days. Anyone who fails to do so and is found in a Division/Squad will be automatically membership revoked!

 

IMPERSONATION POLICY
Xiled Syndicate strictly prohibits any member from impersonating or misrepresenting themselves in any way. This includes, but is not limited to, impersonation or misrepresentation of a member’s uniform, rank, department affiliation, activity completions (including testing/training), and/or military status for the purpose of manipulation or abuse of rules, policies, or special consideration(s) not deserved. Xiled Syndicate conveys huge respect for all those who sacrifice themselves in defense of their countries. Impersonation of any military affiliation is prohibited, and those caught violating this policy may face severe disciplinary action(s), including but not limited to, permanent revocation of your membership.

 

JUNIOR SQUAD POLICY
Members under the age of 15 are required to join a Junior Squad
The minimum age requirement to join Xiled Syndicate and be placed in a Junior Squad is 12 years old (community permitting).
If a division does not have a Junior squad they must join one that does.
There is no limit to Junior Squads per Division.
Juniors may also proceed through the ranks up to, and including, Founder as long as they meet requirements, and are only to oversee Junior Squads.
Co Division Leaders and Division Leaders must still be 15 years of age or older.
Junior members will be held to the same standard as Adult Squads with the 3 Strike Policy.
No member above the age of 15 is to be in a Jr squad unless they are the GEN of said Jr squad or an “acting” GEN. (NO EXCEPTIONS)

 

LEAVE OF ABSENCE POLICY (L.O.A.)
There are three (3) types of LOA: Long-Term LOA, Short-Term LOA, and Military LOA.
Short-Term LOA: A member may request a “Short-Term” Leave of Absence from their Xiled Syndicate membership at any time without denial. The member will receive an LOA, and then be subsequently relieved of any and all responsibilities during their requested absence period. If the member is an officer, an equal (or superior) officer will be assigned to cover their responsibilities while on LOA. The period which qualifies as a “Short-Term” LOA is 1 to 15 days. Upon returning from a “Short-Term” LOA within the allotted time frame, the member is restored to active status and returned to their previous position before being placed on LOA.

Should the member not return to their squad/division in the allotted time frame, the member will automatically be upgraded to a “Long-Term” LOA status for the duration of the “Long-Term” time limit (75 days more). The member will then be removed from their squad and division tag to allow for Xiled Syndicate related progress to occur. The member’s position may then be made available for another member to be promoted into. Upon returning late, the TRANSFER POLICY will apply.

Long-term LOA: A member may receive a “Long-Term” leave of absence from their Xiled Syndicate membership at any time. The member will then be subsequently relieved of any and all responsibilities during their absence. The period for which qualifies as “Long-Term” LOA is 1 to 90 days. A member on “Long-Term” LOA must be removed from their squad and division tag(s). Should the member not return to their “post” in that time frame, the member will automatically be removed from the CMS and subject to the ACTIVITY / INACTIVITY POLICY.

Military LOA: A member may receive a “Military” Leave of Absence from their Xiled Syndicate membership at any time. The member will be subsequently relieved of any and all responsibilities during their absence. Military LOA is 1 to 365 days. Should the member not return to their squad/division in that time-frame, the member will automatically be removed from XGN, and become subject to the REJOINING POLICY. This is necessary due to the continual growth and evolution of XGN’s Membership and Policies, which after 365 days (or more), will have changed substantially. Any member found to have falsified their military status, or utilizing “Stolen Valor” for the purposes of a Military LOA, may be subject to disciplinary action(s), including but not limited to, Blacklisting of your membership.

Procedure for LOA:
Member must notify a superior officer for LOA status.
Member must replace their rank with the initials “LOA” in their location.
Member must place the date of departure and estimated return of their LOA interval in their Bio.
Example: “LOA 7/7/2010 to 7/7/2011”
Must friend/follow “Xiled Syndicate LoA TAG” until they return.
Must send message to “Xiled Syndicate LoA Tag” with your intended dates of departure and return.
Example: “LOA 7/7/2010 to 7/27/2010”
Must be removed from the squad tag and CMS.
Upon returning, the member UN-FOLLOWS the “Xiled Syndicate LoA Tag”, removes LOA (and dates) from their Bio, sends the “Xiled Syndicate LoA Tag” a message stating they have returned, and must then report to their superior officer for active duty assignments, and/or CMS and tag updating.
Any member not following the Xiled Syndicate LoA Tag is to be considered NOT ON LOA, and subject to full membership policies. LOA provides for needed time away for personal reasons. Should a member be found to be actively playing on their console (game progression), they may be considered “returned from LOA” and subject to active duty policies (there are exceptions). LOA is a consideration to its membership, which Xiled Syndicate recognizes, for needed time away from their consoles (for personal or real life demands), not Xiled Syndicate, or your responsibilities to your rank. If a member is found to be using the LOA process to shelter themselves from their responsibilities (shirking), they may face disciplinary action(s), including but not limited to, Membership Revocation.
If a member is on Leave of Absence (LOA) they may be unaware that have Blacklisted communities or players on their “friends” list. They will NOT be Blacklisted and will have 24 hours to remove & block once they return to their console, Discord and other platforms.
Level 5 Blacklisted Policy
As of December 22nd 2017, Xiled Syndicate will abide by the following protocol when dealing with groups and players Level 5 Blacklisted.

Any member found with a level 5 Blacklisted Clan or Player on their Friends list can/will be Blacklisted by Senior Leadership, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
If a current member of Xiled Syndicate has a friend that has joined a Level 5 Blacklisted group they will be issued a 24 hour warning to block communications and cut ALL contact with the now Blacklisted Member.
If a member is on Leave of Absence (LOA) they may be unaware they have Blacklisted groups or players on their list. They will NOT be Blacklisted and will have 24 hours to remove & block once they return to their console, Discord and other platforms.
Any member identified as “adding” or “contacting” ANY Blacklisted group or player after they have been Blacklisted will face the same or similar protocol.
Senior Leadership reserves the right to handle all Blacklists as they feel fit as a team.
NOTE: Just because this policy is based on LEVEL 5 Security Threats does NOT mean that all other Blacklists are less dangerous or are not to be removed, blocked or avoided. Xiled Syndicate has ZERO TOLERANCE for any LEVEL 5 BLACKLISTED offenders in order to protect our community.

REMINDER: // Members of the Xiled Syndicate must remove, block and avoid ALL Blacklisted groups and players regardless of Threat Level.

 

Member Reinstate Policy
Any member who decides to leave the community for more than 24 hours, of their own accord (on good terms), must go through the Xiled Syndicate Court System for Membership Reinstatement.

Any member found to be a “repeat” offender of this policy may be subject to possible demotion, Squad or Division Level DNH, and be automatically re-directed to the Court System to appeal as a Membership Reinstate.

At that point their case will be reviewed by the court judges and the ruling will be final. All court judges have the right to place special circumstances on a member’s return, e.g. returning rank, members being placed on rank lock, or under a “One Strike”. At any point in this process the Head Court Judge may add or remove any stipulations in regards to said member’s return. The COO, CoS, and CPO have the right to determine what rank is suitable for members to return at, in which case the ruling will be final.

*Do not contact the judges prior, during, or after your case. If you contact any judge about your ruling, before, during, or after the ruling, you will have to wait 30 days to re-apply again!

 

OPEN DOOR POLICY
In Xiled Syndicate, we wish to ensure that members of all ranks are given a path to speak to leadership. This includes, but is not limited to, topics about harassment, discrimination, and general clan questions or concerns. It is preferred that you use the Chain of Command and speak directly to the leaders placed over you. However, if after talking to your leadership you feel the need for additional discussion, you are welcomed to talk with your higher leadership by sending a private message to any or all members of the Board of Directors in the human resources section of the forums “Open Door” topic. The Open Door Policy is not an invitation to circumvent the Chain of Command. You, as a member of Xiled Syndicate, must always take responsibility, knowing that circumventing the Chain of Command may result in disciplinary action. The relationship between you and your leaders will be one of the most important relationships you will have in Xiled Syndicate.

 

RELATIONSHIP POLICY SUBJECT OF: “CONFLICT OF INTEREST”
Xiled Syndicate is a family oriented community. Being a community, we understand that people will pair up. If two members do pair up, Xiled Syndicate asks they please take responsibility and follow the rules outlined; this includes all marriages or “real-life” relationships of any sort. Taking responsibility for your relationship, you will be asked if your relationship gets in the way of your Xiled Syndicate duties, the duties of others, the running of the squad or division, or the well being of any member in Xiled Syndicate. Disciplinary action can be up to, but not limited to, a Membership Revoke. This does qualify for real-life relationships if both parties are both in Xiled Syndicate. This policy does not permit any member over the age of 18 to be in any form of relationship with a member under the age of 18. Violation of this subject of the policy will result in an immediate Membership Revoke of both parties, and possible Blacklisting. Xiled Syndicate does not allow personal “real life” relationships within the same squad/division due to the potential perception of a conflict of interest.
This is to prevent the idea of favoritism or “non-favoritism”.

If the parties are both below a Master Sergeant rank, they may remain in the same squad, providing it is not disruptive to the squad.
If one member is above a Master Sergeant rank, the other must be transferred out of the squad. If they are both above a Master Sergeant rank, the lower ranking officer is to be transferred to another squad.
If one member is in the Division Staff and one is in a squad of said division, then the two members will be separated by division.
If two members are in a relationship, past or present, the one member with the lower rank must be transferred to another squad or division.
An officer cannot be over someone whom he/she is in a relationship with, past or present. If you are an officer in a squad which contains another member in which you are having a relationship, that member must transfer out of that squad.

A division officer cannot be over someone whom he/she is in a relationship with, past or present. If you are an officer in Division Staff which contains another member in which you are having a relationship with, that member must transfer out of that division.

Adult Xiled Syndicate members, over the age of 18, may not have, pursue, or engage in, any unlawful personal ‘pseudo-sexual’ relationship with another member under the age of 18 while in Xiled Syndicate.
Directors, Senior Directors, and Board of Directors are not allowed to have a personal ‘pseudo-sexual’ relationship(s) with any member in the Xiled Syndicate community, unless the COO approves. Familial relationships may be permitted providing that there is no oversight in relation to their rank. Example: Not in the same division, department, or any position of influence over the other.
Members who are in a personal ‘pseudo-sexual’ relationship whom are in XGN, cannot be involved in each other’s promotions or disciplinary actions.
Relationships relating to this policy include: boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, father, mother, son, and daughter as well as all familial and/or LGBT relationships. This also includes any other alternative relationship(s) not stated here. The President, Vice President, COO, CoS, and CPO have the right to review each situation, and may overrule this policy if deemed necessary. This policy is subject to be modified by senior leadership as a whole on a case to case basis.

 

RANKING POLICY
No rank is EVER guaranteed. Even if a squad or division splits, no rank (or title), is guaranteed. Members may not hold a rank (or title) without first successfully completing the Xiled Syndicate test and/or training for that position. Acting ranks (e.g.: “Acting General”), are to be secured by a superior rank, not a subordinate. For this example, a Co-Founder would be asked to act as Squad General until such time as a General could be promoted from the ranks, or transferred into the squad from another existing one. Again, successful completion of the appropriate Xiled Syndicate test/training must occur first. Squad level promotions may ONLY be affected by the squads’ General (or Acting General), unless the situation requires a Colonel to be promoted to General, which will then be administered by the Founder over that squad. Should there be a need to fill a Division Staff position, the Division Leader is responsible to promote a qualified member to that position. If the vacancy is the Division Leader position, the responsibility falls on the Director to submit a qualified member to the Board of Directors for voting. Additionally, anyone seeking a Division Leader or Co-Division Leader position, must first submit an application to Xiled Syndicate for approval. All ranks above Co-Division Leader are voted in by the Board of Directors.

To obtain the ranks of COL/GEN, specific LDP slide-shows and testing is MANDATORY. Failure to do so will result in an AUTOMATIC demotion as well as possible disciplinary actions to any and all Division Staff members involved in said promotions!

 

REAL LIFE POLICY
Real life comes first, but not to the detriment of the community. Xiled Syndicate recognizes that members have a real life outside of the community, and members are expected to handle their personal life first. However, the responsibilities you voluntarily accepted are still expected to be upheld. If you cannot do your job, then either do not accept, or please surrender the responsibility. All jobs within Xiled Syndicate will require you to take a certain amount of your time away from your gaming and/or personal life. Complaints of inadequate game time, or personal time, or threats of quitting will qualify for an immediate demotion of rank, and/or may be interpreted as your resignation from Xiled Syndicate, and will be handled accordingly.

 

REJOINING POLICY
If you wish to return after being Membership Revoked, Blacklisted, or after any involvement in a previously Blacklisted or Non-Blacklisted community, you must log onto the forums, unless you were banned from the forums for your offense, and navigate to the Court System sub-forum. If necessary, you may ask someone whose membership is still in a good standing with Xiled Syndicate to go to the forums and do it for you. Go to the Court area, access, and fill out the appeal form correctly. Wait patiently for all judges and witnesses to post. Answer any and all questions directed to you. Accept the subsequent decision as final.

*Do not contact the judges prior, during, or after your case. If you contact any judges about your ruling, or even before it, your case may be denied and you will have to wait 30 days to re-apply again!

 

RULE OF THREE POLICY:
Members are restricted from participating in more than three (3) departments at any given time. This is to ensure members are able to commit fully to those departments rather than only give a little to several.

 

SEXUAL HARASSMENT POLICY:
(S)exual (H)arassment (A)ccepted (R)esponse (P)revention; S.H.A.R.P.

Any suggestion made to any member that sexual favors will affect any term or condition of membership with Xiled Syndicate will not be tolerated. It is the policy of Xiled Syndicate that any harassment, including acts which create a hostile gaming environment, or any other discriminatory act(s) directed against our members, will result in swift and severe discipline, up to and including, Blacklisting. Xiled Syndicate will not tolerate any such harassment of our members by anyone. For purposes of this policy, sexual harassment is defined as: Any type of sexually oriented conduct, whether intentional or not, which is unwelcome, and has the purpose, or effect, of creating a gaming environment which is hostile, offensive, or coercive. The following are examples of conduct that, depending upon the circumstances, may constitute sexual harassment. Sexual harassment may include anything from calling a person a derogatory name to making advances of a sexual nature. Other forms of sexual harassment include:

Verbal abuse of a sexual nature; sexually degrading, or vulgar, words to describe an individual.
The display of sexually suggestive objects, pictures, posters or cartoons.
Unwelcome comments about an individual’s body.
Asking questions about a person’s sexual preferences, sexual jokes, language, nicknames, advances, or propositions.
Written or oral conduct.
If a sexual harassment accusation has been made, both members will be RS’d for the duration the investigation.
Members must bring any violation of this policy to the immediate attention of their leaders so they can take it up to a Senior Director. This policy is one of the three exceptions to breaking the Chain of Command.

 

SLANDER / LIBEL / DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER POLICY
Slander is the oral communication of false statements that are harmful to a person’s reputation. Libel is the written or printed communication of false statements through words, pictures, or any form other than spoken words or gestures. Defamation is the communication of a false statement, or claim, which harms the reputation of an individual person or group. If the statements are proven to be true, it is a complete defense to a charge of slander. Oral opinions that don’t contain statements of fact don’t constitute slander. Slander is an act of communication that causes someone to be shamed, ridiculed, held in contempt, and lowered in the estimation of the community.

The basic elements of a claim of slander include:

A defamatory statement
Published to third parties
Where the speaker or publisher knew, or should have known, that a statement(s) was false


SOCIAL MEDIA POLICIES

Xiled Syndicate is a gaming community, not a social media community. We handle official business on console(s). However, we do support the gaming app, Discord, for all chats outside of the console/forums as well as other social media platforms including but not excluding Kik, Facebook, Twitter, etc. All members will still be subject​ to all Xiled Syndicate policies and the Code of Conduct on any account linked with the Xiled Syndicate brand. For example, any private account on any social media is private; however any account with Xiled Syndicate or link to Xiled Syndicate in the name or day-to-day activity is considered your Xiled Syndicate account. Any chat that holds more than 10 members with Xiled Syndicate accounts will be considered an unofficial Xiled Syndicate chat and will be shut down immediately as we have provided sanction Discord chats for every member. Any breach of this policy will have consequences.

Any member of Xiled Syndicate wishing to have or create their own server:
– Has to get permission from their Division Leader who will then notify their Director which will then take the request to the CCM
– The CCM will create the requested server and set all security permissions. Following that, they will continue to monitor the server for the safety of its members

 

SQUAD SPLIT POLICY
In order for a squad split to occur, the squad must have the following: A minimum of 80 members, a General, a Colonel, a Major, 4 Captains, and 4 Lieutenants. When a squad is ready to split, the General may request the Division Leader’s permission to split. If approved, the Division Leader will assign a Founder to go through the squad tag/CMS to audit and verify the list for accuracy, as well as assess the online and active status of the squad’s membership. Once the split is approved by the Division Leader, all uniforms of the transferred squad members must be correctly updated. The following scenarios are leadership allocation examples:

The General of the existing squad may be promoted to Co-Founder, space providing. the Colonel may then choose to be promoted to General of the existing squad, or transfer to the new squad as General, in which case the Major would then be promoted to General of the squad not chosen.
If the General of the existing squad remains, and does not rank up to Co-Founder, the Colonel would then take over the new squad. The Major would then be promoted to Colonel, and has the choice to either stay in the old squad, or move to the new squad.
The squad may split as described, into a preexisting failing squad.
Squads may not split outside their respective division.

The General of the squad splitting must compile and submit a complete list of which members and staff will transfer to the new squad for Division Staff to approve.

 

SQUAD PROMOTING POLICY
A member may not be promoted past the rank of Master Sergeant without a gamertag name change to include their community name (i.e. XGN, KN, or TXO), which must be in CAPS. A member may not hold the rank of Master Sergeant or higher until they have taken the Xiled Syndicate Master Sergeant test, have been properly, and fully, trained with the current Xiled Syndicate information, and been in the community at their current rank for at least two weeks. Additionally, they must have met the minimum requirement(s) for that ranks’ promotion in order to qualify for it. Furthermore, a member may not be promoted to any rank above Staff Sergeant, without first being fully trained in the specific policies and training which may be necessary for that particular rank. If any requirement(s), for their rank is discovered to be “not met”, the member will be demoted until such time that they are. The leader(s) who promoted said member without completing said requirements, will also be subject to Rank Suspension and/or demotion. Only the General of the squad may promote. All officers must have taken and passed the Xiled Syndicate test to be promoted. A member cannot be appointed, or promoted, to a rank without passing that rank’s test.

 

SECURITY RISK POLICY
If at any time the Division Leader suspects, or has credible information that supports a credible threat that a squad, division, or website is going to become a victim of a breach of security by another clan, community or individual(s) from outside, or from within XGN, the Division Leader may elect to lock down the squad and division tags. Additionally, the Division Leader may send out a “Please Watch Out For” alert to the squad and division to notify their members of the potential risk.

 

SUICIDE POLICY
Xiled Syndicate Suicide Policy 2.0 – 2018

The Board of Directors take Suicide & Self Harm very seriously. In recognition of the need to protect the health, safety, and welfare of its members; to promote healthy development, to safeguard against the threat or attempt of suicide among membership, and to address barriers to gaming & learning, the community hereby adopts this policy. (Click Here To Read The Policy)

 

TRAINING POLICY
The training process is a multi-step process that can be completed at different times.

No one is to be recruited with another community in their gamertag, excluding Professional Organizations the potential new member is a “fan” of e.g.: FaZe, OpTic, nV, MLG
Official Xiled Syndicate Training Guide (May, 2018)

 

Parties and Status- So that leadership can properly and efficiently contact you as a member, we ask that all members keep their parties open so that they can join if needed. Parties should only be locked down when discussing Xiled Syndicate business, or if a Senior Director or higher is in the party and requests the party to be placed on Invite Only. We also ask that you do NOT kick/remove members from parties. If you should have an issue with another member or non-member, please leave the party and start another. If the situation persists, you may be permitted to lock your party. A member should always keep their status set to Online. NOTE: Due to open foreign / domestic relations with other groups and individuals, the leadership of Xiled Syndicate must often keep Party Chats closed in order to protect the members of Xiled Syndicate within them.
Members may only be permitted to set their status as ‘Do Not Disturb’ under 3 circumstances: If they are not currently in front of/active at their console, are currently on an LOA Status, or if permitted by Divisional Staff. In any of these situations, they are still required to notify Senior Squad Staff and/or Division Staff. If a member is currently not active or conducting Xiled Syndicate business or gaming, the previous restrictions do not apply. However, if there are repeated questionable situations or abuse of these rules regarding “Do Not Disturb”, the member may be subject to questioning by Senior Squad Staff or Division Staff.
The following is now added to the recruitment process: when a new member joins XGN, before they are officially recruited, they must follow the following gamertag: Xiled Syndicate Community – This is in addition to following their squad tag and joining the Xiled Syndicate Xbox Club, as well as the Xiled Syndicate community Discord and their division Discord.

 

TRANSFERRING POLICY
All members have the right to ask for a squad or division transfer. All transfers must be requested by the member wishing to transfer, in person, via direct message or verbally. The proper way to request a transfer is to either have a message forwarded up the chain of command to the Division Leader, or the member may go directly to the Division Leader and place their request verbally. Transfers are typically approved and completed without issue. Only the Division Leader, or General, of the sought after, or “new”, division/squad may deny the transfer. The division or squad the member is seeking to leave cannot deny the transfer. The member may then select another potential division/squad for transfer, or choose to rescind their request (stay in their current division/squad). The member will then be invited into a party with their existing Division Leader, or their proxy, accompanied by the Division Leader of their new division, and the transfer will commence. The current Division Leader, or General, may require the member to provide up to one (1) recruit before the transfer may be effected. Simple breakdown steps to a squad/division transfer: Notify your General (or Division Leader) of your request, verbally or in writing. Your General (or Division Leader) will aid you in pursuing the transfer by contacting the leader of the desired squad/division.

The Division Leader will notify the Division Leader of the requested transfer and discuss the specifics surrounding the request. The ONLY information which may be conveyed, is the member’s CURRENT status. No other information may be divulged/conveyed about the member including (but not limited to) the member’s character, history, conduct, attitude, professionalism, or any lack thereof. This means the Division Leader cannot bad mouth or put down the member that is looking to transfer. The privacy of the member must be preserved and protected at all times. Xiled Syndicate members are allowed (3) Division Transfers only. Any more will result in an automatic membership revoke.

No member may transfer to another division while on RS or RES until requirements are met. This includes squad level transfers!

ALL Division Leaders are responsible for filling out the Division Transfer form. Failure to do will result in a “invalid” transfer!

 

UNIFORM POLICY XBOX ONE
Your uniform is representative of your membership within Xiled Syndicate. Your Uniform contains details which allow others to authenticate your affiliation. Xiled Syndicate requires you to have your community, squad, division, and rank expressed in your gamer profile to be spelled out in your “Location” identifier box. A member’s bio must contain the gamertag of who recruited the new member and date as well as the trainer and date.

It must be in ALL CAPS and in this format, example: “XGN INSANITY GoD CPL”. This example uniform would describe a member of XGN whom is in the squad of Insanity, the division of GoD, and the rank of Corporal.
Only a superior officer or Sr Leader can tell you to take off your uniform. If you delete your uniform for more than 24 hours you are forfeiting your membership in Xiled Syndicate and will be subject to the “Member Reinstate” policy.
Xiled Syndicate does NOT require a member to change their “Real Name” on their gamer profile to reflect any Xiled Syndicate affiliation.
Xiled Syndicate does NOT require the use of a “service record” in their Bio. However it must include the gamertag of who recruited the new member and date as well as the trainer and date. Members who wish to include their service records are allowed to do so!

The act of coaxing a member from another clan or community, including a fellow member of Xiled Syndicate, for recruitment purposes is strictly prohibited. NOTE: offerings and/or promises for membership participation is considered “profit to stay” and is also strictly prohibited. Additionally, recruits may not be recruited into Xiled Syndicate within 30 days of previous membership of any gamer community, or clan including those within Xiled Syndicate.
