Last Updated - May 20th, 2013
Runescape Official Rules and obey them. A rule of our clan is to obey Runescape official rules, please do so or you will be banned or severely punished.
The Dragonz Clan is a family based clan that is built on trust, loyalty, friendship and FUN. This Clan Originated in November 2002 and we plan to maintain its honor and family style forums for as long as humanly possible. Therefore the following rules are in effect and applicable in any official clan function or method of communication, such as, but not limited to, Ventrilo, IRC, RS Chat, etc.
Any Rule breakers will be judged by the Leaders and Co-Leaders to decide on any punishment or banning. We take evidence and past history within and without the clan into account and treat every case of broken rules as equal. Rank will not play a part in the size or type of punishment
The Dragonz Leaders and Co-Leaders have the right to remove anyone from the clan for ANY
Remember: Respect the decision of those that are above you, Leaders, Co-Leaders, Council, Etc are here to maintain a fun and clean clan.Range Of Punishments Include, But Are Not Limited To:
Note: Depending on the severity of the issue, some small punishments may be ignored and larger punishments given.During the time of a ban, you are are not allowed to be involved in any clan activities. This includes not being able to see the forums, not being allowed to attend any clan events, as well as no access to Ventrilo or other official methods of communication.
- First Offense - Small Warning and demotion
- Second Offense - 1 to 3 day temporary ban
- Third Offense - 5 to 10 day temporary ban
- Fourth Offense - 10 to 20+ day temporary ban

1. No Flaming Will be accepted on these forums or in game:
Flaming is considered using profanity, being racially obscene, sexist or cruel. This will not be accepted. This Includes incidents where a racially, sexually or derogatory comment is not directed at one individual clan member
The number one rule of thumb that your parents and teachers have said since day one is "If you dont have anything nice to say, DONT SAY IT AT ALL".
Also please do not create threads about politics and/or religion outside the Discussion Board.
If not everyone involved has made a commitment to be respectful, these 2 topics only lead to either hurt feelings or flame wars and will not be tolerated.2. You can be in another clan while being in the Dragonz Clan**:
Most clans do not allow people to be in more than one clan at once simply for loyalty purposes. We used to have a similar Multi claning policy but with the great number of different activities out there that require large numbers of members we are opening our clan boundaries to incorporate members of other clans into our activities.**While we are now open to multi claning we do ask that you join both clan chats whenever you are logged in. 3. All Runescape rules apply in this clan:
This is self explanatory enough.This applies especially to botting - something that is absolutely rampant in runescape. We will not tolerate any runescape rule breaking AT ALL.
Botting is defined as a program that can include automation tools, macros, or auto-typers that allows a player's account to engage in a runescape activity without any input from the user.4. Forum Accounts Must Have One Single User:
In order to prevent any inappropriate posts, we ask that forum accounts only have one user. This includes siblings, friends, etc. It is completely acceptable to preview our website to a friend/family member, but please keep control of your account at all times. This is entirely due to the fact that we don't want to punish clan members for actions of another person on their account.5. Be Active:
We ask that all clan members try to be as active as possible joining other members in as many activities as possible.
If you have a planed absence please use the Temporary Exile forum or personally contact a clan Leader/Co Leader in advance about your absence. For more information please see this post
.6. Do not SPAM:
We ask that all posts be at least one sentence in length. We do have several "word game" or "story game" topics where this rule does not apply in our Off Topic forum; however we ask that extremely short posts be kept in these threads alone.7. Respect Everyone:
We ask all our members to respect all clan members, clan friends, allies, etc. All we ask is not to "flame bait" or talk badly of other clan members, friends and allies. Regardless of rank, everyone deserves mutual respect. Being a respectful player projects a very good image of our clan as well as yourself. This rule is another important factor in the occurrence of clan promotions.8. No Pornographic or explicit material is to enter this site:
Pornographic images, links or words are not to be posted on these forums. Explicit material can also include any sexist, racist, vulgar or derogatory forms of media. This also includes references, discussion, or encouragement to use to illegal substances such as drugs. Media including any of the previously listed will be deleted and an instant ban will be given. This forum is intended for people 13 and up, we don't need younger members seeing such things. When in doubt if content you are going to post is acceptable, contact a Leader first!
Who To Contact
Every rank has it's purpose. In the event that you find another clan member breaking a rule, or you simply wish to discuss the logistics of a rule, here is a small list of our clan ranks and what they are capable of (based on their position and the amount of forum power their rank holds) as well as who to contact. Leaders
Leaders have complete and full control. Anything can be discussed with members bearing the gold crown. Background checks, IP checks, harassment, friction with other clans, etc can all be discussed with clan leaders. Their number one priority is maintaining a safe, fun website as well as developing new ideas/tools for the clan. Founders
Founders are retired clan leaders who have been around for the longest time. They are also more active than Sages in most cases. They still help maintain the ideals of the clan by working with the current Leaders. It is important to remember that Founders will not be as active as leaders or as up to date with every aspect of Runescape or The Dragonz. Therefore, you should try to contact a Leader before contacting a Founder. All private information/issues will not be discussed with anyone outside the Leader team. Founders still have admin forum permissions. Sages
Sages are retired clan leaders who still help maintain the same values and ideology of our clan by working with the current clan leaders. It is important to remember that sages will not be as active as leaders or as up to date with every aspect of Runescape or The Dragonz. Therefore, you should try to contact a Leader before contacting a Sage. All private information/issues will not be discussed with anyone outside the Leaders team. Council Elders
Council elders are extremely trusted clan members who have full power over every forum on our website. They are also often leaders of clan in-game events. Council Elders are the eyes and ears of our forums. Council elders have a strong knowledge of clan rules and how the clan functions. Council elders participate in many discussions with clan Leaders ranging from updates to alliances to punishments for rule breakers. Elders can be contacted with any problems, suggestions, etc. All information will be given to clan Leaders. All private information/issues will not be discussed with anyone outside the team of Leaders and Council Elders. Council Members
Council members are a group of 4-6 clan members that are fully in charge of creating our clan event schedule. They serve two month terms. Three of these members are voted in by their peers (clan members) and two are selected by the Leader team. Council frequently lead in-game clan events are are also given moderate amounts of power on our forums. They work hand in hand with our council elders. Council can be contacted regarding clan updates, events, etc. If no Leaders, Sages or Council Elders are available, contacting a Council member in an urgent situation is acceptable. Council elders cannot ban forum users. Gladiators
Gladiators are the clan members who have earned the recognition of their peers for what they do for the clan, but who do not always have the time or desire for a higher rank such as Guardian or Council. They have some forum moderation permissions, in addition to all the permissions of Clan Members and Senior Members. Gladiators are not contacted with clan issues such as forum emergencies, rule breakers, etc. Clan members can apply for the rank through our Nomination System
if you meet the requirements! Senior Members
Senior members are clan members that have been noticed for their activity and participation in clan activities for a long period of time. They have no forum powers other than the ability to change their title underneath their name. Senior members are not contacted regarding clan issues such as forum emergencies, rule breakers, etc. Clan members can apply for the rank through our Nomination System
if you meet the requirements! Clan Members
