  • Drafted by the the Community Founder and the Founding Members

Section 1 - Member Bill of Rights

As a member of the New Mandalorian Order, every individual is entitled to their own opinion on all community matters. All members have a responsibility to be mindful in regards to matters that do not concern their squad or them directly. Any member who decides to speak freely is advised to keep in mind that what is said on any topic matter will grab the attention of fellow members and may not be greeted with full understanding and or support. If you are someone who is willing to speak up, please be open and willing to take criticism; we are a community built by the members for the members and EVERYONE deserves to be heard. This is done through our “Open Door Policy” and executed by using the proper chain of command channels. This is the best way for “you” to be heard.

All members have the right to be heard by leadership in the event of grievances.

All members have the right to keep their friends list set to private if they so choose.

No member will be punished twice for a singular breach of the rules and/or Code of Conduct. All members have the right to fair and just punishment with the option appeal.

All members have the right to speak up and report infractions without fear of reprisals.

All members have the right to a swift resolution; no member will have to wait idle for disciplinary action. If a trial is needed, a jury of their peers will be selected by the Marshals and the trial will be judged by the Vanguard.

All members covered by these rights must understand and agree with the Code of Conduct.

All members of the New Mandalorian Order have the right to have fun and enjoy everything our community has to offer.

  • 1a - Mandalore

  • As Mandalore, you are the end-all to conflicts that arise within the community directly dealing with the Vanguard and Councilmembers, but not limited to. The Mandalore is “our President” and the Mandalore title is held by a member who started our community from that of just a dream. When and if the time comes for the “torch” to be passed to a new Mandalore, the person chosen by the current Mandalore will have the same core values as their predecessor and will be chosen for those exact traits. From the time of the second Mandalore on, if the Mandalore is not performing in a manner that is deemed just by the person(s) funding the community they could be voted out by the Council to fill the position with someone better suited for the role and responsibilities.
  • The Mandalore will uphold all of our communities core values and be the end all, say all on any moral infractions committed by any member.
  • 1b - Vanguard and Councilmembers

  • The Vanguard and Councilmembers reserve the right to call an emergency motion to maintain the integrity of our community/organization free from trial and any further judicial needs.

  • 2c - Council Members (12)

  • The New Mandalorian Order has a council made up of a select group of members representing a “board of directors” for NMO and are a recognized group of people who jointly oversee the activities of our nonprofit organization.
  • NMO has a council comprised of 12 members split down the middle with 6 Administrative members and 6 Marshals. All councilmembers are to pull members to the side and talk to them when they are in the wrong in regards to our active C.O.C. and are also allowed to initiate a vote of no confidence towards another councilmember.

Section 3 - Reprimand System

Officers of Captain and up have the authority to dispense reprimands, but should inform Marshals of anything that breaches Code of Conduct.

3a - Offenses that breach code of conduct will be handled in the following manner:

  • Offense 1- One week suspension from discord and squad events as well as potential demotion in rank based on the offense. In the event a member is not part of a squad, they will be suspended from the community discord.
  • Offense 2- Two week suspension from discord and squad events as well as demotion by one rank from current rank. In the event a member is not part of a squad, they will be suspended from the community discord.
  • Offense 3- Member will be suspended until a trial is convened to determine whether they should or should not be discharged from the community and if discharge is recommended, what level of discharge they will receive.
