5-1. Overview

This section will highlight the following conduct expected of members of 4IB on its servers and the rules in place to prevent the misadministration of its servers.

5-2. Game Server Seniority

Battlegroup HQ, J6, Zeus Team and J7 on Training Nights have seniority regarding server administration, if you are logged in and are requested to logout, you must do so without hesitation – no matter of your rank.

After the above-mentioned list, standard Rank Structure for server administration follows.

If you are asked to disconnect, you are to do so without hesitation. If an issue arises with this ask to disconnect, this can be raised later in TeamSpeak or Discord.

5-3. Requirements for Game Server Zeus Status

Any member who requires the use of Zeus for a formal training on the Official 4IB Training Server (Server 2) is to be mindful of adjacent sections conducting training in any means. Abuse or misuse of Zeus will result in disciplinary action for the individual in question.

5-4. TeamSpeak and Discord Rules for 4IB Members and Guests

Global Chat abuse is not tolerated and will result in an official warning.

Any official duties carried out both within and outside 4IB must keep to the same username and rank as used on the forums, usually with the prefix [4IB] if visiting another TeamSpeak/Discord.

Any member who wishes to play on a public server whilst within the 4IB TeamSpeak can change their name, however must be located within a Gaming Room and may not carry out official duties for 4IB until that username is changed back as outlined in Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 2.

Any individual found to be using an offensive or inappropriate TeamSpeak or Discord username, link or avatar will result in an official warning, if this is not changed in due course could lead to the removal of the member from 4IB, dependant on the severity as outlined in Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 2.

Individuals found to be using offensive/provoking remarks/gestures will receive an official warning or dependent on the severity or persistence of this issue, the potential removal of the member from 4IB, as outlined in Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 2.

Guests on the 4IB TeamSpeak or Public members in 4IB Discord found to be doing/portraying any of the above will be requested to change their name/avatar or be removed from either the TeamSpeak or Discord.

Members who invite their friends onto TeamSpeak will be held accountable for their guests actions for the duration of their time on the 4IB TeamSpeak.

5-5. Staff Channels

Staff Channels are used to discuss internal J-Office business only, these channels are not intended for members to ‘hide-away’ from the rest of 4IB. Those found to be located within J-Office channels not carrying out tasks related to that Office will be moved to a suitable channel.

5-6. Office Channels

Office channels work on a ‘Knock and Enter’ Policy. You must gain permission to enter the office from the person whom it belongs to, by contacting them prior to joining the channel. Disciplinary action may be taken against members showing constant disregard to this policy as per Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 3.

5-7. Section Channels

Section Channels are open for anyone to join. The Section IC/2IC reserves the right to ask any member at rank Corporal (Cpl.) and below that do not belong to that Section to remove themselves from the channel. If a member is asked to leave the channel, they should do so without discussion and wait to be cleared back in by the Section IC/2IC.

5-8. Use of Soundboards

Members are not allowed to use soundboards whilst participating in an official event such as a Deployment or Training Session. Special permissions can be given by Battlegroup HQ to allow the use of soundboards to enhance members’ experience positively.

Exceptions to this are members of the Zeus Team in which the use of soundboards is allowed so long as they are aimed towards improving atmosphere and positively impacting other members’ experiences.

5-9 Respawn Policy

Members are not allowed to respawn until either they see the Timer countdown to zero, or are instructed to respawn by a member of Tactical Medical Wing (TMW). Battlegroup HQ reserve the right to give authorisation for a respawn if there is a technical fault. Those who respawn outside the previous mentioned instances will be subjected to Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 3.

5-10: Outward Facing Content 

All internal 4IB SOPs and reprimand procedures (AGAI 67) apply to outward facing content. 

Outward Facing Content (define): Therein where a member of 4IB, is in attendance at a communal event (not hosted by 4IB) where the member has visible links to 4IB. Inluded but not limited to having '4IB' included in their name.
Kind Regards,
