      2. The inability to join a meeting or attend it fully must be communicated before the start of the meeting.
      3. If there is no majority presence possible, the meeting must be rescheduled.

    Ban Rules

    1. All bans must follow the guidelines.
    2. Repeat offences increase the ban length.
    3. If there is no guideline for an infraction, an agreement on the ban has to be reached by at least three members of staff.
    4. Any ban not following the ban report format is invalid.
    5. If the available evidence is not clear, staff will try to contact the culprit for 48 hours. If no response is received within those 48 hours, staff will go ahead with the warning point(s) and any ban. The culprit can still dispute the ban and/or the warning points as per usual.
    6. Any attempt to evade a ban, be it by lying or leaving, will worsen the punishment.
    7. A ban dispute may only be posted in the ban disputes section.
    8. Trying to circumvent a ban will result in a permanent ban.
    9. Grey area Ban's can be issued
      •  They require 1 staff member to Issue but will require review to make sure it’s not abuse. 
      • Grey area bans have to be fully justified by the staff member placing the ban
      • Must be reviewed afterwards by the CM team within a week to ensure bans are not being abused.
    10. Warning Points issued outside of bans can be disputed. The dispute must be made in a Private Message to a CM. The dispute will then be discussed by the Staff Team.
    • The Strike System
      • Each ban is associated with a temporary or permanent warning point(s) on the forum.
      • When a member has two warning points, they are on their last warning.
      • Getting a third warning point means an immediate permanent ban.
      • Warning points given for a ban that is overturned will be revoked.
