The Touring Constitution – by the members, for the members

Touring New Eden is a corp based on freedom for its members, and what better way to help ensure that freedom than to allow the members to decide for themselves the rules they should abide by. Therefore, this corp has a Constitution created by its members, for its members, with new proposals suggested by its members, and voted upon by its members. Democracy and freedom in action!

NOTE: all proposals are raised in-game and voted upon by corp members who are shareholders. See #15 and #17 below.

 

ACCEPTED

The below Constitution has been Accepted by the corp, and all members will abide by it.

  1. The corp agrees that any member may re-open for voting any of these rules, to allow voting for another 7 days
  2. The corp agrees that voting on new proposals remains open for 7 days to allow most corp members time to vote. After 7 days the proposal is closed for voting and moved into the relevant section (Accepted or Rejected)
  3. The corp agrees that Touring New Eden will remain as the pacifist corp it’s always been, and always should be
  4. The corp agrees that members will be kicked out of the corp if they get killed by war targets in highsec during a wardec ONLY if their loss value is more than 20 million ISK (affected members can re-apply to join TOURING once the war is over)
  5. The corp agrees that the CEO has veto rights to invalidate a proposal if it looks like voting manipulation is occurring, or acceptance of a proposal would be disastrous for the corp’s direction (see #3 above)
  6. The corp agrees that anonymous voting will be disabled
  7. The corp agrees that the originally-named ‘Code of Conduct’ be renamed to the Constitution
  8. The corp agrees that its members will treat all players, everywhere, with respect
  9. The corp agrees that a standard tax rate of 5% be put in place to assist paying for corp-sponsored activities (eg. skillbook reimbursement program, medals for member achievements, etc etc)
    10. The corp agrees that during war members will not attack the enemy unless to defend themselves or other members
    11. The corp agrees that members can help defend other members against PVP attacks. This is to allow members to assist other members who are engaging in PVE operations or flying through hostile areas. Rules of engagement would be to only attack an aggressor when another corp member has been shot at, to try and help the corp member get away
    12. The corp agrees that its members will not commit acts of aggression (PVP or harassment) against other players, and will be kicked out of the corp if they violate this (this applies to only ‘shooting first’ or engaging in actions that suggest you’re going to shoot first – eg. targeting someone)
  10. The corp agrees that members will not initiate any acts of aggression against any other player, but may defend themselves with whatever means necessary. Members may also use ECM to defend themselves and other members from acts of aggression. Podkilling is an aggressive act and members doing this will be kicked out of the corp
  11. The corp agrees that all its members will be honest with each other and the wider community
  12. The corp agrees that its members will keep public channels free of inappropriate content
  13. The corp agrees that its members will not exploit or otherwise violate the Eve Online EULA
  14. The corp agrees to add corporate sponsored freight services from nullsec to highsec to proposed list of program
  15. The corp agrees to allow corp members to attain shares in the corp to allow for in-game voting on proposals
  16. The corp agrees to form and run its own alliance, and has agreed to name it Haven. (Accepted: 31 Oct 2013)
  17. The corp agrees that new corp members must be in the corp for a minimum of 1 month before they can become a shareholder (Accepted: 1 Nov 2013)
  18. The corp agrees (99% in favour) that the Haven. alliance will allow corps with any number of members into the alliance, with the understanding that as a refuge, we exclude no one. (Accepted: 16 Nov 2013)
  19. The corp agrees (99.2% in favour) to leave share prices as they currently are. Security checks and the probationary period will help prevent disreputable members from joining and taking advantage of voting rights. (Accepted: 16 Nov 2013)
  20. The corp agrees (98.7% in favour) that new members will be given a one (1) month probationary period before they will be eligible to purchase a share. (Accepted: 16 Nov 2013)
  21. The corp agrees (99.7% in favour) to allow new members to join the corp even during wardecs. Applicants will be advised of the war before joining, and provided the ‘wartime operations’ instructions. (Accepted: 16 Nov 2013)
  22. The corp agrees (99.5% in favour) that the Haven. alliance will accept new corporations into the alliance who are also at war. This will result in the alliance taking on their war as well. How to deal with wardecs will be made available to all new corp members. (Accepted: 16 Nov 2013)
  23. The corp agrees (99.7% in favour) that if a shareholder becomes an Awoxer, then Black Claw will use his alt, Alexia Morgan, to use her majority shares to cast a vote to kick the shareholder out immediately. (Accepted: 16 Nov 2013)
  24. The corp agrees (99.8% in favour) that rules 10, 11 and 12 of the current Constitution be replaced with the following: “The corp agrees that members will not initiate any acts of aggression against any other player, but may defend themselves with whatever means necessary. Members may also use ECM to defend themselves and other members from acts of aggression. Podkilling is an aggressive act and members doing this will be kicked out of the corp.” (Accepted: 16 Nov 2013)
