Moderators have to follow their own strict code when moderating the Tip.It forums. Part of which includes:
Distancing themselves from clans they are in, clans they have been in or clan-leaders they know personally. A moderator may not intervene in a flame-war where there is a conflict-of-interest.
Detaching themselves from their own clans, meaning they cannot create recruitment topics to advertise their own clans; they cannot reply to a topic in the Looking for a clan forum, advertising their clan; they cannot clean their own recruitment topic; and they cannot bump their clan's recruitment topic.
An anti-locking policy to flame-wars, when locking a topic is seen as a punishment, a last resort only to be used when other methods of calming things have been tried.
A tolerant, diluted discipline procedure, where users are warned first informally, which if fails is followed by a formal warning, before further action is taken.
Ignoring personal attacks/complaints/flames and passing them on to a higher member of staff. Moderators cannot decide the fate of those who complained against them.
If at any point you feel a moderator has defied any of these rules, then PM our Clan Administrator immediately, who will investigate the accusation. All problems will be handled privately and swiftly.
The Conclave forum is a place for clan-leaders and clan-officials. The moderation is lax, and the forum's rules allow for free discussion about the clan-world. Furthermore, all Clan-Officials who are added to the Conclave will be given a member-title ('Clan Official') to distinguish them on the TWR forum.
If you are a clan-leader and would like access to the Conclave for your clan, you must first meet the below requirements:
At least two officials with a TIF user account: every clan has one leader plus another one for every 25 members. The maximum number of officials cannot exceed five.
At least twenty-five members on your RuneHead memberlist.
If you meet these requirements, PM Nobody with the following information:
Each member of the Clan-Staff has specific areas expertise, and these have been appropriated into their areas of responsibility; if you have a query/problem/complaint in a particular section of the forum, then feel free to PM the staff-member responsible, whose knowledge in the subject may be helpful.
