Code of Ethics
“We believe in ordinary acts of bravery in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another”
“On my honor, I will neverbetray my tag, my integrity, my character or the public trust.”
“I will always have the courage to holdmyself and others accountable for our actions. I will always uphold the constitution, my community, and the Unit I serve.”
“As a Member of the Unit, my fundamental duty is to serve the community; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception,
the weak against oppression or intimidation and the peaceful against violence, or disorder, and to respect the constitutional rights of all to liberty, equality and justice.”
“I will maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others.”
“I know that I alone am responsible for my own standard of professional performance and will take every reasonable opportunity to enhance and improve my level of knowledge and competence.
I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself to my chosen profession.”
To maintain a code of honor and integrity to protect and to serve my community and to protect and support my teammates.
Beeing a Member of the ITS Unit means having the courage to do what is right and to do the right things.
To Armor my “Self” physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually so that I am better able to protect and to serve.
To Armor my Unit so that it is best able to protect and serve its Members and its community.
To have the courage to walk my talk and look after my peers. If I say “We are all one family” and “I’ve got your back” then I will mean it.
As a matter of honor I pledge that on my watch, “No one gets left behind”.
Terms of Membership
In order for everyone to enjoy being a Member of the ITS Unit, it is important that we have and respect the rules. These rules are not here to spoil your fun, but to enhance it.
The Unit Council is here to ensure that everyone is treated fairly. If you are found in breach of our guidelines, the Unit Council has the authority to take whatever steps necessary to preserve the experience for the remaining members.
If you witness another member breaking our code, or feel that you have not been treated fairly, you can report the incident to any officer.
1. Your [ITS] Uniform Tag and Rank
Once you have joined the Unit, you must always wear your “uniform” whenever you are playing on any official ITS server. It is not permitted to go under any other name. This may sound overly strict, but the more visible our [ITS] uniforms are, the more people will take notice, and the stronger our reputation will become. Besides, your ITS uniform should be worn with pride – you’ve worked hard for it!
2.1 In order to stay in the ITS Unit, all members must regularly play our official games and contribute in Discord, Steam & Servers. If there will be any extended periods of time where you know you will be unable come online, you must leave a message on the Forums explaining as best as you can why, and when, you expect to return. Failure to do so may result in your retirement, and/or the loss of your rank. – If you go Offilne for any length of time, you risk losing your membership!
2.2 All members, who have a specific duty to perform for the team, must be seen contributing in their area on a regular basis. If you believe you are unable, or will become unable, to do your job, let the management know immediately.
3. Respect for any Member
Holding a high rank does not give you the right to treat the lower ranks badly. We are a team, and any member – regardless of rank – found being disrespectful to another member will be dealt with appropriately. That being said, ranks are awarded for hard work, skill, and dedication. Ranks must be respected. Displaying a disrespectful attitude to any rank will not be tolerated under any circumstance. Arguments will happen, as we’re only human, but they should be conducted in a controlled environment away from the server, and out of the forums. If a member is found to have argued with a senior officer publicly, dismissal is likely to result! If there are disputes between commissioned officers, they must never take place in front of the troops!
Your performance, attitude, and time online are always under scrutiny. We recognize good performers, and you will be promoted when the Leaders believes you are ready.
5. Other Clans
It is important that we respect other players and organizations. It is therefore a demotable, and potentially bannable, offense if any member is caught being disrespectful in any online server, forum or chat. If you are taunted, simply ignore it.
6. The [ITS] Servers
When in our game rooms, it is important that you treat all visitors with respect.
6.1 The public server is our link to the outside world. As such, our representation when playing should be one of best behavior.
6.2 Passwords are for [ITS] members only and not to be issued to non members. Exception is the friends password.
6.3 Server Admins must act responsibly with server access and not make changes to maps, game types, time limits, or etc, unless all players agree.
6.4 Remember to play the missions as though it is the first time you have played them. New players entering need to see how we play at [ITS].
6.5 All [ITS] members who join the gameservers are asked to join Discord Voice chat when available.
6.6 When a [ITS] member needs to enter a full server, he should ask any [ITS] member that is currently playing to free a spot. This member must ask in-game players if someone wants to leave his spot. If he can’t find a volunteer, kick the last non [ITS] member who joined the server.
6.7 Before kicking any player from our server, he must be warned at least 1 time about his mistake. If after the 2nd warning he still not respecting [ITS] server rules, kick the player from the server.
6.8 We try not to use the ban command unless we have no other choice. Therefore, it is always preferable to kick the player as a warning. If after the kick, he still comes back to bother the server, you are allowed to ban the player from the server.
It is not allowed to give information to anyone who is not authorized to receive that information.
[ITS] rules must be upheld. Violations of the CoH, disregarding official [ITS] Policies and Procedures or any other official directive will be sanctioned.
