This post will cover all of the ranks within our community, how they are earned and what features the include. This post will also cover various roles held by various staff members within our community.
This is the default group for all unregistered users in our community. Community members are expected to accept and abide by the Rebirth Gaming rules and conduct at our various community touch points. Users who have not yet accepted these terms will remain a GUEST where applicable, which restricts the users permissions and privileges depending on the touch point.
WEBSITE - Guests are people who visit our site without being logged in as a user. This limits the person's access to certain pages on our website, and prevents them from participating on our forums, but may still read and view certain forums and pages on our site.
TEAMSPEAK - The guest rank does not exist here. Users who join our Teamspeak are granted the Member rank by default. This means that our Teamspeak rules and conditions will be opt-out rather than opt-in.
DISCORD - The guest rank is given to all new users. Guest users are restricted to the #rules channel and have access to one command - !acceptrules - which promotes the user to Member.
MINECRAFT SERVERS - The guest rank is given to all players upon their first join on our MC servers. They will only have permissions needed for reading and accepting the rules. Upon accepting the rules, a GUEST will be promoted to MEMBER.
COMMUNITY - Guests are considered people who interact with our community from the outside through other touch points. For example - if we post an article to our Facebook or Tweet something on our Twitter, any person who interacts with these external touch points (such as 'liking' our status or retweeting one of our tweets) is considered a guest.
Guest are authorized to participate in external facing promotional events, such as hosting a contest with the goal of bringing more members into the community. External facing events are different than internal facing events. Internal facing events are aimed at people who are already part of the community (members or above), and as such, guests will not be authorized to participate in internal-facing events.
This is the default group for all regular community members who have accepted are rules and conduct terms, do not hold any special ranks and who are not on the staff team.
WEBSITE - Members are capable of posting on our public forums, reply to threads, comment on articles, and visit commonly accessible pages on our site. Members (and above) are also eligible to earn and spend Coins
TEAMSPEAK - Users who log into our Teamspeak will automatically have the Member rank by default. Users will be confronted with a message informing them of the rules. Closing this dialogue box will count as agreeing to the rules. Teamspeak members are granted default access to common channels. Members will also be capable of creating temporary channels, and lock them with a password. When this channel becomes empty, it will automatically be removed. Members will not have access to other private channels nor staff channels.
DISCORD - Members on Discord are automatically promoted from Guest to Member upon accepting the rules. This grants members access to common channels.
MINECRAFT SERVERS - Members are players who have read and accepted the rules. Accepting the rules will promote a player to the Member rank. Members have 'default' privileges and permissions. More details on Minecraft permissions and perks are outlined on the respective Minecraft server forums.
COMMUNITY - Members are capable of participating in both internal and external promotions and events, except where explicitly stated otherwise. Members will also be able to participate in community decision making processes, such as suggesting new features for our servers, website or other community touch points. While a member's voice will be heard, it will be considered to have the 'least weight' among all other ranks. This is entirely circumstantial, and more detail will be provided case by case.
This group is reserved for members who have been part of the Rebirth Gaming community for prolonged periods of time, which is roughly 6 months. Other conditions may apply, and will be outlined here when determined.
This section is still WIP as we determine perks and advantages a Veteran may have over regular Members.
COMMUNITY - Since veterans are loyal and long-standing members of the community, their voices will carry more weight when it comes to community decisions and deciding on features within the various community touch points.
This group is reserved for members who donate any amount of money to the community.
Much of this section and donor perks are still WIP, but I will outline some proposed ideas here and now.
WEBSITE - Donors will have access to a forum that other members do not. This forum will most likely just be a forum for donors to make suggestions on donor perks, or asking for help with donor features.
TEAMSPEAK - Donors can request to have a permanent channel added for personal use. Additionally, donors will have priority for joining our TS server if it's full.
DISCORD - Donors can request to have a permanent, private voice or chat channel added for personal use.
MINECRAFT SERVERS - Donors will be granted several perks on our Minecraft servers, depending on the server. These perks are aimed to be in compliance with the Mojang EULA while also being worthwhile. Perks may include:
- Initiating a vote to change day/night and rain/sun
- Having priority access to join a server when full
- Ability to use nicknames
- Ability to use colored chat
- Ability to create private chat channels
- Access to all [tags] and titles for free
- Ability to request to have custom name tags created
- Ability to request to have custom logos added to our Tradewinds server for use on boats and vehicles
- Access to all MyPets for free
- And a lot of other cosmetic and fun features
