GENERAL [P4CK] MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS AND INFO

All Members, Veterans, Moderators, and Admins are expected to adhere by the following requirements at all times. Failure to follow these will result in removal from The [P4CK].

REQUIREMENTS:

If you read nothing else, read these. These 5 rules are all you need to do to maintain membership in The [P4CK]!

  1. Register for an account on https://thep4ck.com and post at least once in any Forum of your choice within the first week of joining.
  2. Fill out your with your relevant contact info. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, this is how we verify that you have registered on both the website and joined the Discord (see below). Make sure you enter your full Discord name, including the numerical #tag at the end of it - it can be found next to your profile picture in the bottom left-hand corner of the Discord window.
  3. Join our Discord if you haven't already. Make sure to change your Nickname to your in-game name that you plan to play with in The [P4CK] (Battle.net, SteamID, etc.). Note: Your nickname is server specific, and you can change it any time, so please make it easy for us to find you!
  4. Post on the Forums at LEAST twice a month. Note: if you haven't been a member for a full month or you joined in the middle of the month don't worry, you only have to have made a post during your first week of membership.
  5. Respect the decisions of Admins and Moderators. This one doesn't need very much explanation - we require respect among all members at all times, and our admins and moderators are held to the same standard.

 

A NOTE ON SPECIFIC IN-GAME CLAN/TRIBE/GUILD/TEAM REQUIREMENTS:

  • Some games have activity requirements beyond those listed above for their in-game [P4CK] clan/tribe/guild/group See the G4ming P4cks page for specific requirements related to each game The [P4CK] plays! Keep in mind that your status in a specific in-game group does not affect your status as a member of The [P4CK].

 

OTHER INFO:

  • Our official tag is [P4CK], rock it at will.  Multi-membership is fine, but if you’re with a [P4CK] group, wear the tag!
  • [P4CK] members are encouraged to be as active as they would like on the Discord, Forums, and the games they play. Though we have minimum activity requirements, we also offer special incentives and are always looking to reward folks who keep the community vibrant.
  • Our doors are open to all.  If you know someone that is interested, invite them to the website to register and get them in the Discord!
  • Be a team, feel the memes. We’re here to have a good time. Don't be a salty boi, embrace the Byarn wipes.
  • Participation in the [P4CK], good attitude, teamwork, and general awesomeness are things that Admins and Moderators are constantly on the lookout for! If you've got hopes and meme-dreams of seeing your name in the Admin or Moderator list, make sure you exemplify those qualities!
  • As noted above, all members must have access to Discord, but having a microphone is not a necessity for general membership. However, microphone requirements for in-game [P4CK] teams vary by game, see the G4ming P4cks page for more information.

GAMING P4CKS (GP) EXPLAINED:

The [P4CK] is more than a tribe or guild in a single game, we're a community of players that spans across a variety of different games and genres in order to create a system that allows you to find a group no matter what game you decide to jump on.

We've categorized our members into 6 unique "Gaming P4cks" (get it?!):

  • MMO/RPG - includes games like World of Warcraft, Diablo 3, and Path of Exile
  • MOBA - includes games like Heroes of the Storm and DOTA 2
  • RTS - includes games like Civilizations and Company of Heroes
  • Shooters - includes games like Destiny 2, The Division, and Call of Duty
  • Social - includes players who prefer to jump around, and focus on new games that may not fit elsewhere
  • Survival - includes games like ARK: Survival Evolved, Citadel: Forged With Fire, and Rust

We'll be adding more games under each Gaming P4ck as The [P4CK] sets up clans, tribes, or guilds on them. Check back often for more info!

CHOOSING A GAMING P4CK:

  • By default, you'll be a member under the Gaming P4ck for the game from which you joined.
    • For example, if you joined The [P4CK] because you are a member of our Destiny 2 clan, you would automatically be a member of the "Shooters" Gaming P4ck.
  • If you are not a part of an in-game team, you are still a member, you just do not have an assigned Gaming P4ck (yet! Read on for more info...)
  • Choosing a P4ck is not required to join or participate in any events, however members of a Gaming P4ck are always given priority for that P4ck's events, read "Why Join a Gaming P4ck?" below.

GAMING P4CK VETERANS:

  • Each P4ck will be overseen by an Admin, who will help manage P4ck membership and direct the activities of P4ck Veterans. See the specific Gaming P4ck's page for more information about admins and Veterans responsible for each Gaming P4ck.
  • P4ck Veterans are experienced players who are extremely dedicated, and are willing to take on leadership in a game they love. They are the direct leaders for the various in-game [P4CK] teams, from being the Guild Master in World of Warcraft to the Tribe Admin in ARK: Survival Evolved.
  • It is not necessary to be a P4ck Veteran to join or participate in any events, however members of a P4ck are always given priority for that P4ck's events, read "Why Join a Gaming P4ck?" below.

WHY JOIN A GAMING P4CK?

The [P4CK] is designed so that you can just hop on and find a group in whatever game you want to play, and that's our number one goal. However, maybe there's a certain type of game that you enjoy more than all the rest, and you want to make sure you're always first in line when The [P4CK] plays it - a Gaming P4ck is for you! Gaming P4cks are very easy to join, simply enter some basic info on the landing page for the Gaming P4ck you want to join. An admin or Veteran for that Gaming P4ck will add you - that's it! You can switch between Gaming P4cks, but only by applying for a new one using the form on that Gaming P4ck's page. Note: applications are at admin discretion - don't be a P4ck-hopper, that's what the Social Gaming P4ck is for!

WANT TO START THE [P4CK] ON YOUR FAVORITE GAME?

Didn't see your favorite game in the list above, or have we not started a [P4CK] group for that game yet? Let us know if you want to start The [P4CK] on your favorite game by heading over to the "Submit A Game" tab above! We're always looking to expand our player-base. If you've got an existing community in your favorite game, and you'd like to house them under The [P4CK]'s roof, just make sure to check the box for "I've already got a group who plays this game" when you submit your info!

We're always open to discuss mergers, etc. and depending on our current membership, we may be looking for new players! So if you've got a great group and you want to make sure they've got a place to call home, submit your info so we can talk.

[P4CK] DISCORD SERVER REQUIREMENTS AND INFO

All Members, Veterans, Moderators, and Admins are expected to adhere by the following requirements at all times. Failure to follow these will result in removal from The [P4CK].

 

REQUIREMENTS:

  1. Respect the purpose of each Discord channel. Channels are clearly labeled with both the game and activity they should be used for. See "More Info" below for information on a few of the specific channels if you are confused or need an example.
  2. Be courteous to others by using Push-To-Talk if you have a sensitive microphone. If your microphone picks up every mouse-click and keyboard press, PTT is probably the way for you. Note: someone politely asking you to use PTT is not something to get offended over.
  3. Use the appropriate text chat channels, as specified by their title. Don't have conversations in #lfg, or talk about the weather in #help!
  4. IMPORTANT: Usernames/Nicknames on Discord should also appear in your on this website. If one or the other don't match, we won't know it's you in Discord, and we might boot you! That's no good.

 

A NOTE ON MICROPHONE REQUIREMENTS:

  • Microphone requirements vary by game. It isn't necessary to have a mic to join the Discord or have fun with The [P4CK], but we'd advise looking at the Games page, and checking the specific requirements for that game's [P4CK] team. We'd hate for you to be left out because you can't communicate during raids!

 

OTHER INFO:

This is a very basic description of a few of the main channels, this is not an all-inclusive list.

  • General Chat: open to all, random discussion, you should not expect this to be a quiet channel.
  • Private Voice Lobby: can be joined by anyone. The purpose of this channel is to allow Admins, Moderators, and Veterans to easily drag players into private chat channels. This is not a general discussion lobby.
  • Private Voice Channels: can be joined only by Admins, Moderators, and Veterans. For the purpose of holding group events and practices without the ability for anyone to accidentally disrupt communications.
  • NSFW Text and Voice Channels: Locked from all members by default. If you would like access to the NSFW channels, please contact an admin in Discord. Note: NSFW channels are open ONLY to members age 21+, don't make us tell you no. Material in the NSFW channels must still adhere to content guidelines listed under the "Content" tab of this page.
  • Game Specific Channels: can be joined by any member, and should be used for the labeled purpose. For example, "Destiny 2 General" would be a good place to hang out and chat while casually playing. However, "Fireteam 1" would not, as it is designed to be used by a Fireteam doing a group activity.
  • "PTT" Channels: forced Push-to-Talk channels require all members to use Push-To-Talk to speak. Push-To-Talk can be configured under "User Settings" (the gear icon in the bottom left hand corner next to your Username) > "Voice & Video" > Enable "Push to Talk" > IMPORTANT: Set your shortcut or you won't be able to use Push-to-Talk!
    • Click the box underneath "Shortcut" and then press the mouse button, keyboard button, or key combination you would like to use to enable voice communication.
    • NOTE: Push-to-Talk will not be automatically disabled. You will need to repeat the above steps and activate "Voice Activity" instead of "Push-to-Talk" to return to your previous settings.

[P4CK] FORUMS REQUIREMENTS AND INFO

All Members, Veterans, Moderators, and Admins are expected to adhere by the following requirements at all times. Failure to follow these will result in removal from The [P4CK].

 

REQUIREMENTS:

  1. All content posted by members of The [P4CK] should be a reflection of the great community we're a part of. Do not give us a bad image.
  2. We have members from a variety of backgrounds, orientations, and cultures - respect for differences is necessary for us to get along. There is absolutely no racism, bigotry, homophobia, xenophobia, antisemitism, or sexism allowed at any time. I think that covers it all, don't be an ass.
  3. The sharing or distribution of sensitive or personal information about any individual is absolutely prohibited. If you post personal or sensitive information about someone else, you will be banned and your content will be deleted. This is a zero-tolerance policy.
  4. NSFW content should be posted in appropriate channels. NSFW content MUST adhere to the same guidelines as above! Use common-sense, you can still have NSFW content deleted or be banned for the content you post in an NSFW channel. WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK AN ADMIN BEFORE POSTING. If you do not have access to NSFW channels and would like it, please contact an admin. Note: NSFW channels are only available to members age 21+, there are no exceptions. Please do not make us say no to you.

 

A NOTE ON ADMIN & MODERATOR DISCRETION:

  • Admins and Moderators have the final say on what content is acceptable and what is not. Failure to respect the decision made by an Admin or Moderator will result in a permanent ban. If you feel that you have been treated unfairly by an Admin or Moderator, please contact @Cumb#2142 on Discord immediately. Your issue will be dealt with discretely, and all reported Admin & Mod issues are taken seriously.
  • If you are unsure about the "okay-ness" of the content you want to post, ALWAYS ASK AN ADMIN FIRST. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND ASK FOR PERMISSION, RATHER THAN TO BE UN-BANNED.

EVENT REQUIREMENTS AND INFO

All Members, Veterans, Moderators, and Admins are expected to adhere by the following requirements at all times. Failure to follow these will result in removal from The [P4CK].

 

REQUIREMENTS:

  1. If you sign up for an event on the Events page,  you are confirming that you will attend that event. Event registrations are not a way to "show interest", it is not like clicking "Attending" to that "Run like Naruto" event on Facebook, it actually matters. The admins and Veterans use this information in order to create groups and ensure we have enough people for weekly teaching runs, practices, etc.
  2. If you are unable to attend an event you have registered for: you need to go to the "My Events" page and cancel your booking at least 24 hours before the event starts. This will open the slot for someone else.

 

OTHER INFO:

  • Please make sure you only register for one space per event, and that you select the correct type of "Ticket" for that event. For example, if you are registering for a "Teaching Raid" and you need to learn the encounters, you would select a "Learner" ticket rather than a "Teacher" ticket.

INACTIVITY REQUIREMENTS AND INFO

All Members, Veterans, Moderators, and Admins are expected to adhere by the following requirements at all times. Failure to follow these will result in removal from The [P4CK].

 

REQUIREMENTS:

  1. All members must notify an admin using the form below if they plan to be inactive from any in-game group for longer than 14 days (2 weeks). Failure to notify an admin using this form will result in removal from any in-game groups you are a part of.
  2. All members must notify an admin using the form below if they plan to be inactive from The [P4CK] in general (i.e. Discord and Forums) for more than 21 days (3 weeks). Failure to notify an admin using this form will mean you are still responsible for your monthly Forum posting requirements, and thus could be subject to removal from The [P4CK].
  3. There is no requirement for how soon you let us know you'll be inactive, but please try to provide as much advanced notice as possible. It makes the lives of our admins much easier!
