Hey Rebels of Phoenix Base.

Below is a set of rules I would like you to read and live by.
With the reboot of our Base it came to my attention that more than one rookie/member did not know what was in the charter or what we do and stand for … which is unacceptable in my eyes.
I've recently gotten access to the forums of our mando friends and found their approach to the rules exactly what I needed. The following block is largely copied and adapted from their rules, as I feel they are exactly what I want my base to live by.

Quote:

1. Rebel Legion Charter
The Rebel Legion has a Charter in which all essential rules and regulations are noted.
Every member of The Rebel legion has to follow these writings.
The charter can be found >>HERE<<

2. No violence, no illegal stuff, no activities that could harm the club

  • Violence, threatening somebody, pushing someone to commit violence, etc... are all bannable offences. You're allowed to defend yourself but under no circumstance is anybody ever allowed to commit violence towards other members of the club or towards the public. You're all adults (or almost), use words to talk things out.
  • Illegal activities: this includes but is not limited to drugs, carrying forbidden weapons, stealing, purposefully damaging someone else's property, etc... Not only will these acts get you kicked from the club, but you'll probably have to answer to a higher authority afterwards (read: law enforcement).
  • Any activity that could harm the club: bad mouthing other clubs, damaging the reputation of our own club, being a nerfherder towards the public or other costumers while in costume, etc... If your behavior can damage the reputation of our club, you'll have to answer for it.
  • Any in-club arguments are to be handled as adults. If you and another member of the club have an argument, we expect this to be resolved in private. Members attacking each other in the open or online will be considered activity harmful to the club.


3. Common sense
This is a separate topic because common sense can be a scarce resource these days ... Before you do something that may appear ''cool'' at the moment, think first and ask yourself: ''Is there any way this could backfire?''. If there is any doubt, don't do it. The Force is not real, you can't make that Force-jump on or off a stage. Your saber-swinging might be top-notch and look cool. But keep in mind that we are usually surrounded by public and it can go wrong very fast (falling, blades not being decently screwed in, bladetips flying) … and that brings us back to ruleset 2.

4. Show respect for each other

  • No member shall make fun of another because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, beliefs, etc... Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. If one of your fellow clubmembers is a pastafarian and believes in the Flying Spaghettimonster, they have every right to and you don't have the right to mock them for it.
  • Humor, throwing quips at one another, laughing when someone makes a fool of themselves, etc.. are allowed. This isn't the obedient clone army, you're allowed to have fun, just make sure that it stays a friendly atmosphere.


5. Forum
To get validated for the Rebel Legion you are going to need a forum account on these forums. We strongly encourage the people that are looking to join Phoenix Base to already make an account as soon as they can. This will allow you to more freely ask for help on all sections when you are still building your first costume and have access to base-only sections when you are a validated member.
Keep in mind that posts that are off topic to the topic at hand will be removed. We have provided a topic for random chatter called The Fiery Bird Pub.

6. Social Media

  • Any member that posts in a rebel chat room, official Rebel Legion or Phoenix Base page, etc... is expected to hold up to the rules of the Rebel Legion and Phoenix Base. If you start a flame war online and it can damage the club, prepare to pay the price.
  • While we can't stop you from making an idiot of yourself on social media, please be aware that any public statements you make regarding the club, members, other clubs, etc... will be gathered as evidence for any disciplinary procedures if the need arises.


7. Events
As a base we try to take part in a lot of events. We will always try to brief the people that are joining us via mail or messaging. Just to get things straightened out before the doors open or the event starts. If no specific rules are mention, use the Rebel Legion and Phoenix Base rules.

a few types of events we handle, each with their limitations.

  • High profile events are events were we get a specific invitation to provide people. This can be either through the LFL casting database or a general call. In either case, only validated members are allowed to join these in validated costumes. Example: LFL Exhibitions
  • Medium profile events are handled with a preference of validated members. These are one of the pillars of our club so it is important we try to support these as much as we can. If we need an increase in numbers, we will ask/allow members with nearly-finished costumes to join us to make the magic bigger. In this case we will ask you for pictures to see what stage you are in. Example: Make-a-Wish
  • Low profile events (Cons/others) are open events in which case we can be a bit more flexible. Example: Facts convention


While it's possible that everyone can go to these events, keep in mind that sometimes there will not be room for all members due to the size of the event.

  • Free entrance: when we can obtain free tickets, we won't hesitate to do so. However, it may not always be possible to get enough tickets for all members. If this is the case, the tickets will be handed out in the following order:

    1. Validated members
    2. Rookies (people working on a costume, or almost done)
    3. Handlers

Keep in mind that members who bring a costume to the event will always have preference over members that don't. Just because you're an official member, and only want to walk around all weekend in your t-shirt, don't expect there to be an automatic ticket waiting for you.
  • events abroad: when we visit events abroad, the strictest rules that apply have to be followed. This could be our own set of rules, or those of the base/country we are visiting.


    8. Booth

    • At all the larger open events, we will try to have a booth for our club. At smaller events this may not always be possible.
    • The booth usually consists out of a changing space (when space allows it at the booth), several tables with leaflets and gear, such as armour, weapons, helmets, etc...
    • Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES is the booth ever to be left unattended. If you're the only person at the booth, you don't leave it. If you have to answer nature's call, hold it in. If you can't, find a bottle. Being the only person at the booth will be a rare occurrence, the only time it could ever happen is during a parade or a photo shoot, where all the costumed members + several handlers will be. We'll always try to keep at least two people at the booth at all times.
    • The booth is to remain orderly. No food or drinks are to be left on the tables for the audience to see. Put your stuff under the tables or in the changing space, plenty of room there and no one can see it.
    • When we do have the luxury of a changing space, if you are done changing into your costume, make sure there is room for other people to change. Don't leave your suitcase or trooper box laying around in the middle taking up all the space.
    • ABOVE ALL ELSE, keep the booth CLEAN and PROFESSIONAL! Nothing puts the public off faster than a disorderly unclean booth.


    9. Language

    • Belgium is a trilingual country, where Dutch, French and German is spoken. To keep things simple, the official Base language is English. This doesn't mean you can only speak English from now on, e.g. if there are only Dutch speaking members around, go ahead and speak Dutch.
    • English was chosen as it is the language almost everyone one of us speaks to some extent, while only a minority of us speaks all three national languages. It also makes it easier for people from other countries to follow what's happening on our subforum.
    • While we understand it's not always easy speaking a foreign language, nobody will hold it against you if you still want to speak your mother's tongue. We'll manage somehow.


    10. Costume building "parties"
    Since the Legion does not have that many armoured costumes, I can't bring to calling them armor parties. Still … a few things to take into account when getting together to build or work on something.

    • The host gets final say on how many people can join and who can and cannot.
    • Unless otherwise noted, everyone should bring some snacks and beverages with them. You can't expect the host to take care of all of you.
    • If you have any specific tools such as a dremel, heat gun, glue gun, etc... it is highly advised to bring them with you. If there's only one of each available, there won't be a lot of work done.



  • I can understand that some of these things might sound strict or army-like, but as our base is slowly picking up speed again, I feel we need clear understandings among members. While the crew might amend or add more rules in time if that need arises, we are not putting these up for debate.
    I expect all my base's members to follow these rules.

    I would like to ask all members, that means validated members AND people who have intentions to join our Base to reply to read the charter and the 10 points above and respond to this post with "Read and understood"
