General Provided Services SOPs
(Covers all Services Provided by UO: Teamspeak, Forums, GameServers, etc.)
United Operations is an open gaming community and with its growth we have seen the influx of outside Communities, Clans, and Gaming Personalities join us. On the game servers, on TS and on the Forums these Users are welcomed and encouraged to show their pride and wear their Tags, however, with the influx of outside presences some users have openly and disrespectfully mocked these users and communities by changing their names to impersonate or imply that they are members of groups falsely. Because of this disruptive and disrespectful behavior the following SOP is being enacted:
Any user caught impersonating or claiming to be an User or Personality that is not their own;
Any user caught impersonating or claiming to be in a Clan/Community/Group they are of;
Any user caught wearing the tags (or variation of said tags) of a Clan/Community/Username they are not a member of;
