TOURING is a corporation that promotes itself as providing its members freedom to do their own thing without any demands or expectations placed upon them by the corp, within the framework of a neutral, friendly and pacifist corporation.
Our mission statement:
We are a friendly, neutral and pacifist corporation. We maintain a non-aggression policy (PSNO – Pacifist, Shoot No One), even to those who would do us harm. We will develop and maintain friendships with corporations and alliances around New Eden, allowing our members greater freedom when travelling.
Therefore, within that framework, there are certain expectations that corp members must abide by.
The below Code of Conduct outlines what those expectations are.
1. OUR MEMBERS WILL NOT COMMIT ACTS OF AGGRESSION AGAINST OTHER PLAYERS
Acts of aggression include:
- initiating attacks against other players.
- Seeking out and attacking players you have kill rights on.
- Providing logistics support to a player who is attacking other players.
- Targeting another player’s ship, even if you don’t intend shooting – it’s an act of aggression. (This does not apply to NPC ships, which are fair game.)
- Looting yellow wrecks (this will flag you as red to the player owning that wreck, allowing them to attack you. Loot only blue wrecks unless you have permission from the player that owns them).
- Salvaging wrecks you don’t own. Get permission from the owner first – if they’re around. If no one is around, salvage all you want. If they come back, apologise, explain yourself, and ask for permission. If it’s not given, leave. While salvaging wrecks is not an act of aggression in game mechanics, it IS considered an act of aggression by players, if they’re around to see you doing it. Declarations of war occur because of it. Avoid this.
- Providing intelligence information. For example:Pursuing Fleet: “Did you see BilboBaggins flying through this area?”
You: “Sure did, they were here 5 minutes ago! I saw them jumping through that gate over there….” That is not a neutral act of a member of a neutral, pacifist corp. It’s an act of aggression against poor old BilboBaggins.
- Selling kill rights or placing bounties on other people’s head. Doing this is not a pacifist action and could be seen as an act of aggression, because it’s encouraging violence.
- Any member who commits any of the above acts of aggression after being warned about it may be kicked out of the corp.
- Any member who is attacked may defend themselves as they see fit. However, pod-killing is not allowed, since you don’t need to defend yourself from their pod…
- Pacifists do not seek out pilots to attack them, even if they have kill rights on them, or the other pilot is flashy red.
2. OUR MEMBERS ARE HONEST WITH EACH OTHER AND WITH THE WIDER COMMUNITY
TOURING members don’t lie, cheat, steal or deceive. Our word is trustworthy. This will not change during times of war. We will always operate with integrity, and our commitment to this will never be in doubt.
3. OUR MEMBERS TREAT ALL PLAYERS, EVERYWHERE, WITH RESPECT
Members are expected to be respectful to all players. There will be zero tolerance for personal attacks, smack talk (talking trash, taunting, or annoying people in local chat), abuse, disparaging remarks and ridicule.
- This includes being respectful of flashy red pirates and other hostiles, as well as those who smacktalk and abuse in public. If you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all. If offended, just ‘block’ them so you don’t see what they’re saying any more.
4. OUR MEMBERS KEEP PUBLIC CHANNELS FREE OF INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT
Members will avoid the use of profanity. While it’s understood you might be frustrated by something that happened to you, don’t share it with swearing in channels. Keep that for your own home. Sexual inuendo or racism is to be avoided at all times. There will be no tolerance in this regard.
5. OUR MEMBERS WILL NOT EXPLOIT OR OTHERWISE VIOLATE THE EVE ONLINE EULA
For all members of TOURING, actions which breach the End User Licence Agreement (EULA) or Eve Online as set by CCP, are prohibited. Examples include account sharing and purchasing of ISK or in-game items for real money. Any member found to have engaged in actions forbidden in the EULA will be immediately removed.
