Leaders may make changes to these guidelines and requirements in the future; please consider this a living document. Remember that Boot’s purpose is to teach players good character building habits before they embark on bigger and better things. The requirements for these promotions are to encourage players to engage in several positive aspects of Aardwolf.
If you believe you are due for a promotion, please write a note to Boot on board personal. This is your responsibility not ours. In your promotion request, state your exact numbers relevant to your promotion (e.g. global quests won: 15). Once your request is posted a Leader will check your request and give the promotion.
A note on exceptions:
These promotional requirements are designed to put our members in a good position when they spread their wings in other areas of Aardwolf. The first promotion is meant to be readily achievable by all, but you may notice that the requirements certainly become more demanding as one moves up in rank. No exceptions will be granted in replacement of any of these requirements, unless in extreme circumstances. Please note that a fear or dislike of global quests is not an acceptable reason for an alternative requirement.
Those promoted under previous guidelines retain their current rank, but are now subject to the new system for further promotion.
NOTE: All promotion requests require you to submit a list of completed goals when writing your note. Failure to do so will slow down the tasking/response!
