THE VANGUARD PRIME DIRECTIVE
1) Real life first
The vast majority of members have families and a real life, and we firmly believe that keeping these things before gaming is the best way to go. Never feel bad, and never put anyone down, for having to take care of real life.
2) Drama free zone
Most of us graduated high school years ago. Leave the teen drama in the school halls. Drama will not be tolerated.
3) Positivity or the highway
Negativity is a plague that can take over with even the slightest infiltration. Any negative members have got to go. We’re not expecting fluffy bunnies and rainbows 24/7, but don’t be a debbie-downer!
4) Be respectful
Treat others the way you’d want to be treated. Treat all your fellow members and our allies with respect.
5) No jerks allowed
Being a jerk is not acceptable. We won’t accept jerks as clients, vendors, or members. We will never be jerks. Life’s too short.
6) Always go above the call of duty
Never accept “good enough” for yourself. Do the best for yourself and your organization. This ideal should be lived and remembered every day!
7) We Play The Game We Have
The game is still being built, right beneath our feet. Stay up to date with the current mechanics, learn how things work, and embrace changes as they come. Plan for the future, but be well familiar with the present, and make the most of it.
The goal of the Prime Directive is to keep Vanguard a safe and fun space for all of our members. If you ever have a problem with the game, Vanguard, or an individual member, do not hesitate to reach out to our Officers or our Fleet Marshalls. We will work towards a mutual resolution. We know “it’s only game”, but relationships with members means relationships with real people. Treat each other with respect and expect to receive the same. We all want to have fun after all!
