Rx Clan Charter

The Rx Philosophy
Insomnia is a group of like-minded individuals who strive to make a difference. We are considerate and help others whenever possible and distribute our knowledge freely to those who ask.

We are a close-knit clan who treat each other as family, we are laid-back and don't mind giving each other shit and having a good time, and we consider Insomnia an extremely fun clan to be in, otherwise we wouldn't be here.  We are here for fun, and community, and the only thing we take seriously is loyalty to each other and to our charter.  After all, it's a game right?

Rx members are bros before pros any day!


General Requirements
Invitation
Before applying for Insomnia Clan, you must be invited by a current, fully tagged member of the clan.
Skill
Of course skill level matters a bit. A certain caliber of skill on the grid is required to play comfortably with each other and our opponents. Skill evaluations are made informally by clan members. Naturally, we will be much more willing to accept players who have skill.
Talents
In addition to Armagetron AD, Rx takes pride in the artistic creativity and skill of our members. We are constantly looking for members with special talents and technical proficiencies.  Our clan was built on creativity and the drive to innovate.
Activity
No clan wants dead-weight members who no one knows and are only seen in whispers of children’s imaginations on rare moonlit nights. We seek players who will make valuable contributions to our discussions and weigh in on clan matters when their opinion is asked. Members should also play often enough to at least be familiar with the majority of current clan members. We are a close knit group, and it’s tough to be an asset if no one knows who you are or is familiar with your playing style. We don't like members who just want to slap on a tag and be done with it. If you're joining a tron clan, at least a small part of you is a nerd, and we expect you to live up to it!
Personality
Personality is the most important factor to Rx when considering an applicant. That’s right; members have been rejected and accepted into the clan based solely on their personalities. If you are easy to get along with and have a decent sense of humor, you stand a much better chance of getting along with the rest of Insomnia.
If you are unwilling or lacking terribly in these criteria, you may want to consider another clan.


Clan Positions
The hierarchy in Insomnia is fairly simple.  Accepted applicants undergo a period of prospective membership. If a prospect is voted into the clan, they become a fully tagged member. All members hold the same rank, however there are certain jobs to be done within the clan, and each of these jobs is assigned to a clan Officer.  Each office has its own responsibilities and requirements and with each office position comes a new clan dynamic. It is up to each member the level of participation they wish to enjoy within the clan. Office positions are based upon informal campaigning and elections among members when numbers permit, or are appointed when member numbers aren't conducive to an election process.  The perfect candidates for office positions demonstrate high player activity levels, personal maturity, initiative, responsibility, valuable clan contributions, and skill. Below are each clan position and its corresponding responsibilities and benefits.
