The Supreme Commander is charged with the responsibility to lead the guild and the guilds under their command to a state of self-sustainability. While the Supreme Commander will do this through their Game Commanders, whose primary responsibility will be to build and foster their guild in a way that is compliant with these basic requirements and other goals of the Supreme Commander. It is deemed by the Quorum that the following minimum factors must be in place in any Pegasus Command Guild for it to be seen as meeting this standard:
Section 1: Standards apply for all official games.
a. The guild has core Pegasus Command values ingrained in its structure and its members. We are here to help one another in games, have fun, use the game as a vehicle for social interaction, and be novel with in and out of game activities. Have a community atmosphere among its members and encourage horizontal interactions as well as respect for our institutions and chain of command.
b. The guild has developed an in-game chain of command, that is responsive to the needs of the members and Pegasus Command. The guild will have some type of chain of command that provides an in-game officer career path. The officers of the game guild will understand that their position is one of service to their game community and to Pegasus Command as a whole.
c. The game guild will by its structure have a member career path from the beginning of the game, through end game. Structures, events, and other activities will be structured to aid members in moving from phase to phase in a game. The game guild will have a leave no one behind attitude to gaming and will have events for all members no matter the type of player, or experience in a game.
d. The game guild, if designated an expansion guild by the Quorum, will have a positive growth rate of members each quarter. It will do so anytime the membership of the guild is deemed by the Supreme Commander to be below sustainability for its structures and leadership bench. Once a game guild obtains sustainability it will add members in a rate to ensure its continued sustainability into the future.
e. The game guild, if designated a replacement guild by the Quorum, will maintain a neutral growth rate of members each quarter.
Section 2: Standards for moving a game from exploratory status under the Office Supreme Commander to official game status:
I. Exploratory games are a new expansion game guild started by the Office of the Supreme Commander as listed in 7-GCR-1 (1).
II. Exploratory games do not start with official game status. While members of such games are Pegasus Command members, they may not be granted citizenship, nor will their time in the guild as a member of an exploratory guild count toward citizenship unless it is subsequently granted official game status under this rule.
III. It is the Quorum’s sole responsibility to determine when such a game guild will be granted official status. It shall do a review of the game guild at 30 and 60 days.
IV. The first 30-day review shall be completed no later than 45 days after the first recruit is obtained for the new game guild.
V. The second review shall be completed no later than 70 days after the first recruit is obtained for the new game guild.
VI. Failure of the Quorum to conduct a review be it the first or the second, within the time periods specified, shall result in the game’s immediate shutdown. With all members being given a 7-day chance to join one of the existing official games or be removed from Pegasus Command.
VII. This review process is separate and distinct from the other reviews conducted by the Quorum of the Supreme Commander.
VIII. For an exploratory game guild to continue on track under this rule it shall meet the following criteria:
1. A minimum of 12 new members were recruited within the first 30 days.
2. Lower-level cc’s have been conducted at least twice within the first 30 days.
3. A low level op should be established and conducted at least 3 times within the first 60 days and must be recorded for review.
4. This op must have followed the triple M method of op planning. There must be adequate verbal engagement in the op, the op must have been conducted in the game and show how it would fit into game progression, it must be at least 45 mins in length, and it must be fun.
5. Supreme Commander must provide adequate evidence that member engagement is being conducted and new members given adequate notice of events and ops in the game guild and the guild as a whole.
6. Supreme Commander must show there is adequate time spent in the guild games discord room to establish a discord flow, this is 2-4 hours most days when members can expect someone to be present in the room.
IX. Should the game guild fail any of the above requirements it shall be shut down immediately and all members will be given a 7-day window to join one of the existing official games or be removed from Pegasus Command.
X. For an exploratory game guild to obtain official game status at its second review it shall meet the following requirements:
1. A minimum of 22 new members were recruited.
2. A minimum of at least 4 CCs.
3. Low-level op conducted at least 3 times.
4. Meet requirements of 4,5,6 above on at least 3 recorded Ops.
XI. Should the guild game meet all the above requirements the Quorum shall make a determination as to grant official game status to the exploratory game guild, should it not do so it shall be shut down immediately and all members given a 7-day window to join one of the existing official games or be removed from Pegasus Command.
XII. The provisions of these rules are mandatory, and no time extensions may be given.
