Remnants of Hope

Guild Ambassadors

Recommended Posts

The role of the ambassador here is much as the nomenclature suggests: a representative from a foreign entity. Much as countries have an ambassador to another country, here an ambassador represents another community. An ambassador is a representative and a part of that other community... but is not a part of Remnants of Hope. They help coordinate events and activities between our community and theirs, to enhance the experiences of both.

While there may be some benefits to allowing those representatives a place in-guild under a special 'ambassador' rank, there are drawbacks as well. Remnants of Hope strives to "promote a stress free environment for members to relax and enjoy the games they play."   To this end, we have a Code of Conduct which depicts a series of rules and guidelines every member agrees to follow when they join the community.  These guidelines serve to create a space where members feel comfortable to be themselves and engage freely with others who enjoy the same games they do.   All of our successful applicants put a good amount of time and effort into their trials in order to demonstrate that they are a good fit for this community, and that our community is a good fit with them.

Allowing non-community members into this space would circumvent and undermine our trial process; if others can be part of the guild through means besides our trial process, regardless of context, it diminishes the importance of those requirements, and is unfair to all of the members who did put in their time and go through their trials successfully.  This is the same reason we no longer accept mergers from other guilds.  Additionally, it would mean that we would have people in our guilds who were not beholden to any of our rules or standards, and that may make the friendly, protective area we strive to create here not feel so protected or private anymore.    While those we associate with as ambassadors or allied guilds are likely similarly-minded, and while we heartily encourage people to make friends outside of the guild as well as in, it is important to maintain a delineation between those who are members of our community, with all the rights and responsibilities that entails, and those who are friendly relations outside of it.

To that end, we'd like to lay out a few quick guidelines about the Ambassador position:

  • Anyone may propose a member of another guild to receive the Guild Ambassador rank, if that individual is willing to accept it
  • A brief proposal should be sent to the Division Commander of the applicable game and to the Elder Council, explaining the reasoning behind the request
  • If the Division Commander and Elder Council both agree with the proposal, the individual is then given the Guild Ambassador forum and TS rank
  • Ambassadors have access to our forum calendar and divisional boards, but not to boards relating to the community itself
  • Ambassadors do not have access to any Remnants of Hope guild within our divisional games
  • Ambassadors are able to move freely to any open TeamSpeak channels, but do not have the ability to move other users or guests
  • Ambassadors are expected to help set up at a minimum one successful event involving both guilds each month

We hope that these will serve to clear up (understandable) past confusion over what the Guild Ambassador position is and what it entails, and provide clear guidelines for the position going forward.  As always, if you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to send them to the EC.
