Company Rules and Policies

Orange Chicken Discord Policies

Nicknames and Permissions
By default, you will only be able to access this welcome text channel and the Party/Raid voice channels. Please ask someone to set your permissions for discord in the game or via PM to an officer. We will set your nickname for this server to your character name so we know who you are if it isn’t already and give you appropriate roles so you can access relevant content. If you are a guest or raid team member, etc., whoever invited you should set this up. There are a few channels that are for only FC members.

Voice Channels
The conversation channel is like the FC chat function in the game, but for voice. Permissions are set to force Push to Talk (PTT) to minimize background noise, bodily functions, and other distracting and unwanted interruptions to the conversation. The mobile app for discord ignores this setting so we ask that you set this appropriately. If you have your system properly setup so we don’t hear extra background noise/game noise etc., we can grant voice activity permission. Please just let us know. The party/raid channels are unrestricted for PTT/Voice Activity as having to hit a keybind during a raid or tough fight can be cumbersome.

Text Channels
Please post things where they belong! If it isn’t mentioned here, it probably goes in #shitposting.

#announcements is used for FC leadership to relay important information about the FC or events. Only officers can post in this channel, but be sure to check it regularly so you are up to date with what is going on. If you need to comment or discuss something posted here, see #ffxiv.

#cat_pictures is for your pets. We prefer cats here, but all animal-loving FC members are welcome to post pictures of their pets or any other animals they come in to contact with.

#ffxiv is for game-related chatter. It is also the appropriate place to request events. Just be sure to tag @ officers so we can get it on the FC event schedule.

#hidros-super-awesome-fun-time-explosion-hour is the FC raid team. Hidro runs this team and organizes our raid content. If you are on the raid team and don’t have access to this channel, ask Hidro or Mo to set your role to grant access.

#links is a channel with easy access to frequently asked game resources. If you think something should be included that isn’t, or you find a broken link, please PM an officer.

#playlist is to queue up songs for Broccoli Beef (our music bot) to play in your channel. Please only post commands for the bot in this channel.

#screenshots is the place to show off that picturesque sunset or awesome piece of gear you worked so hard to get. This should be strictly FF14 game related images. Brief discussion of a posted image is ok, but if you are going to get in to the latest reddit debate, please take it to #ffxiv.

#shitposting is officially designated a NSFW channel and you have to acknowledge this before discord will allow you to view it. We had problems in the past with the old #general channel and people getting offended by differing viewpoints, etc. While most of the time it is a level somewhere between PG-13 and R, the easily-offended might be better off skipping this one.

Orange Chicken Overview and Activity Requirements

We welcome everyone to our free company without play style or level restrictions. We are a group of players who enjoy playing the game and hold regular scheduled events. We also have impromptu events so be sure to keep up with discord so you know what is going on. If you need help with content in game, please use @everyone, @here, or @officer tags as appropriate and whoever is free will be able to respond. If you can’t get enough people right then and there, we can schedule something.

Our main rule is no direct, personal attacks on other FC members. Do we really need to go in detail on this? If so, maybe we aren’t the FC for you.
We don’t tolerate trolling. This includes excessive complaining. Why continue to subscribe to a game you hate?
We have a no reinvite policy unless you were kicked for inactivity or otherwise pre-arrange a temporary departure with Kasia.

Inactive members are purged from the FC regularly to keep an active player base.

• Offline 30+ days and no Grand Company
• Offline 60+ days and does not have a room at the FC house
• Offline 120+ days in all other cases

Anyone discharged for inactivity is welcome to rejoin when they come back. Just put in an application or message an officer.
