SFOTU - Space Federation of Trade Unions
Our organization brings together both individuals and entire organizations operating on the Star Citizen platform.
As the Polish Alliance, our main operating time is UTC + 1, which does not change the fact that we will be happy to see people and organizations from other time zones in our ranks. We accept english speaking people in our organization but we are primarily polish alliance.
§1 General Rules
You may not offend other members or their families. This is the main rule in our org and it will be enforced. Every conflict can be solved, you just have to want to talk. If someone does not want to talk, it means that they are at the core of the conflict.
If you are unable to get along with each other, notify one of the officers or, as a last resort, the commander-in-chief (Emperor).
In the event of a conflict which involves officers, we report the situation to the commander-in-chief.
We help new players if they ask for help.
If we play, we try to be logged in on the Guilded - communicator used by the organization. It is not obligatory, but it is highly recommended. It is recommended to be on Guilded, even when you are not playing, it improves the integration of people in the organization. We often play other games together in anticipation of the SC to mature.
We visit the forum at least once a week. Our forum is a treasury of knowledge about the game itself, but also about projects related to it and the functioning of our organization.
We recruit people over 18 years of age. The age level is caused by the fact that some conversations may be topics that are not suitable for minors.
We require a degree of personal culture. It is good if a person can speak without cursing but if something slips we can live with it.
We have no other requirements, apart from accepting the regulations and filling in the application for admission.
Guilded is currently SFOTU's main communicator - This status may change if Star Citizen has a fully functional Spectrum communication system and it meets our requirements.
We welcome people from outside the organization on our Guilded platform.
Guilded is used for voice and text communication, both within SC and other games.
There is a requirement as far as personal culture goes. We behave as if someone from our work or our children could hear what we say / write. This does not apply to 18+ channels, where we enter at our own risk.
§4 Roles in the organization
The roles in the organization are set by the commander-in-chief at his discretion, but it is advisable that his decisions are consulted with other members of the organization during meetings at Guilded and / or forum surveys.
If there was no consultation when selecting a person, the Commander-in-Chief bears full responsibility for the selection and decision of the person.
The commander in chief can be voted out of command. However, it is required that at least half of the (active) members of the organization vote. A simple majority of the votes is required. Voting must last a minimum of one week to allow most of the active members to take part.
The following roles are currently envisaged:
