Generals:

Professionalism:

Remember while being a member of Xiled Gaming you are expected to uphold a professional gaming demeanor at all times. There is no reason to be yelling at other members, messaging in all caps or trash talking other members in the community. We are all here for the same reason, to have a group of people that we enjoy gaming with every day. Remember the golden rule: treat others how you want to be treated.


Generals and Squad meetings:

Generals, it is your responsibility to communicate to your Captains that they need to run the Clan meeting if you are unable to, and it is also your responsibility to run a Captain's squad meeting if they are unable to hold it as well. If you cannot make the weekly mandatory Generals meeting you must inform your Captains so that one of them may take your place to receive the notes for the week.

Username Changes

As a reminder, after your XS has approved a gamertag, the member needs to request to have it updated on the website before changing it on the Xbox.
In order to submit a name change request, the member simply needs to click or press their name in the top right corner of the site, and then choose Username Change.

Leadership Growth & Development

Development of leadership abilities should always be a high priority for you, leadership, and all clans. Thinking about how you communicate and speak to all members is crucial, as well as always conducting ourselves in a professional manner. Stay calm when handling situations. Gaining respect of members will go a long way, especially when looking out for potential future leaders and keeping clans successful, regardless of if they are in your section or not. Constantly learning, whether it's from your peers, your direct leadership, or non-leadership members is crucial. Asking for advice is key in growing yourself and keeping yourself motivated and driven to do the best you can do, which sometimes is simply knowing how and when to ask for help.

A good leader never allows complacency to take hold - stay on top of your game always, including making decisions in a timely manner. That will set you and your section up for success and be a good example to up and coming leaders who rely on you and your guidance. Make sure you are finding the balance between being involved, but also allowing your leaders to handle things within their capabilities as much as possible to allow them to grow and thrive. Even when they make mistakes, it's a part of the learning experience that oftentimes helps them to grow better, while also making sure that the same mistake isn't made twice.

Think outside the box and don't be afraid to try new ideas to see if they work, and encourage members to bring up their ideas for how to make the clan better. By setting up future leaders for success you'll make things easier for everyone, including yourself - let them find their own style of leadership and help them whenever possible, and don't be afraid of change as it is something that will always happen as times change and we have to adapt.

Winter is Coming

Busy season is coming for clans. Between cooler weather and game/console drops, activity will be picking up. It is also gonna open up the door for plenty of potential recruits. Let's make sure that we are not locked away into parties and missing out on future stepping stones of the community. Let's also make sure that as transitions are being made to the new games that we are not leaving some of our members behind on our previous main games.

Console Release Schedule

Suggestions & Ideas

All leaders need to be open to hearing criticism as well as ideas and suggestions - there might be something that members consider an issue that we aren't aware of, and the only way we will know is by listening when someone brings it up. It also offers us an opportunity to look at the way we are currently doing something and evaluate if it's the best way to do that, or if we can take that feedback and improve what we are doing. It also can be an opportunity to educate someone who hasn't been properly trained or has been misinformed as a way to get them on the same page. Embracing new ideas can help your clan to stay strong and have an environment where members thrive and feel welcomed.

As always, bring ideas and thoughts up the chain of command and use the open door policy as needed - the only stupid question is the one that's never asked!

XG Bible

As a General, you have access to the XG Bible located here: https://www.xiledgaming.com/forums/xiled-gaming-bible.31/
This is a great resource if you are looking for an answer to a question and your XS isn't available, and it's a great area to go through during downtime to read through the posts and expand your knowledge base.

PROFESSIONALISM

When dealing with members in any setting within XG, Professionalism is always a key to getting across the points of interest within the conversation that is happening. Raising your voice, insulting others, and refusing to listen to all points of view, will cause drama and will not be productive to the conversation or any situation.

THE HONOR CODE
In Article 6 of the Honor code it states that:

XG members CANNOT be apart of any other gaming communities/clans! Any and all gamer tags must be either in XG clans or in none at all. XG does NOT have ANY alliances with other gaming communities/clans! XG will remain friendly and professional with ALL gaming communities at all times! ZERO TOLERANCE! If a XG member leaves, they are NOT allowed back. In the event of a member wanting to come back, each situation will be looked at by the COUNCIL/Division Leaders on a case-by-case basis.

LEADERSHIP CLASSES
Leadership classes are open to limited spots, Those spots are reserved for members that need the course. If you are looking to sit in on the class message the teacher they let you know the availability

PROMOTION REQUIREMENTS
NO Promotion is just given for meeting the time requirements. Promotions must be earned by fulfilling all the responsibilities of each rank. Promotions are not asked for they are earned. Because you have been in your position for a long time doesn't not guarantee you a promotion. If you have completed these requirements please speak with a leader. If you are not maintaining the requirements of your position please understand you are hurting your clan, the community and your friends. If this happens you will be relieved of your leadership position. It isn't personal. We can't have inactive or ineffective leaders hold back what our members need. please review the promotion requirements with the link provided.

Honor Code Section VII

Violation of the Honor Code will earn a Gamer a warning; two warnings and you will be banned from the community. Members caught purposely cheating and/or participating in manipulated online play will be immediately banned. No exceptions!

Religion & Politics


We are an online gaming community, meaning that we are here to game, not to talk about subjects such as religion and politics. Talking about these topics are deeply personal to each person, and talking about them can cause huge issues between clan members and even members in different sections or divisions, and have even caused clans to completely fall apart. Keep in mind that these topics should not be brought up between members and any discussions about these topics are very sensitive, so it's best to completely avoid discussions about them at all.

Official Communication

Official XG Communication should only take place on:
1. Xiled Gaming Website
2. Xbox Party Chat or Messages
3. Official XG Discord Servers

Creating Facebook groups, Discord servers, Kik chats, or anything else that is used to discuss clan business or Xiled Gaming topics besides the three official forms of communication will cost you your rank and possible membership in XG. This DOES NOT include chats or Discord servers for non-XG related topics, such as streaming Discords or official game Discord servers - if you need clarification, hit up your chain of command.

Discord is not mandatory for any ranks other than XS-XI, but is highly encouraged as a way to keep on touch with and meet other members who play the same games.

https://www.xiledgaming.com/threads/xg-communication.75286/

Sensitive Information

When speaking about information with leadership that is sensitive, whether over a party or in messages, make sure that this information isn't being brought up around members that it doesn't pertain to. This can be regarding promotions, demotions, warnings, etc. If a leader is spreading information around to members that it shouldn't be discussed with, disciplinary action will be taken which can include demotion or even removal from the community.
https://www.xiledgaming.com/threads/leaking-sensitive-information.74857/

Working with Peers

To be successful as a group of leaders, we have to work together as a team. You have to be a strong enough leader to be able to put petty differences aside to work for the betterment of the whole team. There is no room for condescending remarks or attitudes when a peer comes to you for help. All leaders have had different experiences and have advice or perspectives to offer for specific situations or know how to answer a question that you might not know. Be willing to listen to ideas or perspectives, because it's hard for one person to consider all options and ideas by themselves. Make yourself an asset to anyone you can help when they are dealing with a situation they haven't had to previously.

Examples:
1. Clan is struggling and is rebuilding - offer advice or support so that person or clan doesn't feel like they are alone and that people have their back.
2. A clan struggles with recruiting new members, while your clan steadily brings in recruits on a regular basis. Tell them your tactics and even team up and go recruiting together to help them become more comfortable and also show them different ways that they hadn't tried.
3. Someone new has been promoted that was previously under you - be there to listen to their questions and offer advice to them as they become accustomed to their new rank, continue building that mentor/protégé relationship that you have already established.

Game Nights

We have community wide events which are hosted by our community Events Team, that are listed each week in meeting notes - if you or any member are interested in hosting events which are open to the entire community, please apply by posting an application here: EVENTS TEAM APP AREA

Members and leaders are welcome to host clan game nights, squad game nights, or even section game nights, but community wide events must be hosted by members of the official Events Team. Please be considerate that if a game night is already taking place on a night when someone else is doing an unofficial game night, it can pull people away from the opportunity of meeting other members across the community. If you have questions about the Events Team, please hit up either XGC Buffy XD or SYN JAChelle XS on Xbox.
