4- The Adult Gamer Mason Rank Guidelines

Recommended Posts

TAG has ranks of membership:

TAG Newbie - You recently signed up and are getting to know our community.

TAG Regular - You have been on the site for a little while, you're making posts and getting to know people.

TAG Member - You hang out at TAG a lot, game with us and have probably gotten to know a few people pretty well.

TAG Mason - As an elected member, TAG is your online home. We all game together and you're a member for life.

TAG Elder - In addition to being a Mason, you served on Council to help coordinate things at TAG. Council will discuss pressing issues with the Elders to make sure everyone agrees with important decisions affecting TAG as a whole.

TAG Council - You were elected by fellow Masons to help run the community for a 1 year term.

Separate from the forums, TAG's Discord Server has two additional ranks following after TAG Member that grant exclusive Discord privileges: 

Sithposter - Following in the ways of the Sith, your command of memes has unlocked the Sithposters-Anonymous channel and access to the Music bot. 

Jabber Jedi - You have way too much time on your hands but we love you for it anyway.

Mason Election Guidelines

  1. The Mason rank is restricted to users who are at least 21 years old.
  2. New users registering on the forums or joining our Discord Server are required to post a personal introduction in the 'Introduce Yourself' section of our forums.
  3. Before any forum or Discord member can be considered for TAG Mason, they will need to meet the following minimum requirements:
    - 3 months of active participation with the TAG community.
    - 100 substantial posts in multiple forums of TAG (not just spam and smilies, and not just limited to one narrow forum) and/or reach Member rank and have substantial activity (excluding spam, emojis, etc) in multiple channels on our Discord server. 
    - The candidate should have a strong familiarity with our community.
    - Once the requirements have been met, the user will be added to a list of people eligible for the Mason vote by the current Mason community.
  4. At the end of each month (or a week or so before) a list will be posted privately for the community to vote on. This list will include everyone who has met the requirements or will meet the time requirement by the end of the current month.
  5. Based on the list of members who meet the minimum requirements, TAG Masons will nominate people as candidates for Mason. In the nomination, the Mason will state how he/she knows the person, what games they have played together, and give other good reasons why the person should become a Mason (please see the 'Nomination Questions' below) .

    a ) Other Mason may nominate the same person and give additional support.

    b ) Only Members who receive nominations will be included in the monthly ballot.

  6. During the nomination process, if you do not believe a nominated candidate will make a good Mason, please explain why in a respectful manner and provide examples of conduct. Please remember TAG guidelines are in effect.

  7. The current Masons will then vote for mason-ship. Masons may vote Yes, No, or Abstain.
    - 'Yes' means the candidate should become a TAG Mason.
    - 'No' means the voter feels strongly that the candidate should not become a TAG Mason at this time.
    - 'Abstain' means the voter does not know the candidate well enough to make an informed decision.
    - To become a Mason, the candidate must have at least 55% Yes votes and no more than 25% No votes.

  8.  Council will tally up the votes and announce the new Masons. The amount of inductees each month can vary due to the amount of votes that each person receives. So there could be any number of Masons inducted each month - no minimum or maxium exists. Mason promotions will begin at the start of the month.

Sponsored Regulars: On a side note, there has been discussion of family members or close friends that are under 21. With consideration of the wishes of the Masons of TAG, it has been decided that TAG Masons will have the option of sponsoring a family member or close friend if that person is between the ages of 15 and 20. The sponsorship will occur with the approval of Council. Masons will only be able to sponsor one person at a time. These individuals will not be eligible to become a TAG Mason until their 21st birthday. If the sponsoring Mason leaves TAG, the Sponsored Regular will need to find a new Sponsor before being allowed to remain with TAG.


Nomination Questions:

When nominating someone for Mason rank, these questions should be answered by the nominator to give other Masons a good view of the candidate:

1. Name and why you feel this person should become a full TAG Mason?
2. What games have you played with the candidate?
3. What makes them a good candidate to be a Mason?
4. How long have you gamed with the candidate?
5. Do you know the candidate outside of TAG?
