Eyes & Ears believes in common courtesy and the rule of law. While we do not represent any kind of law enforcement, we will levy the appropriate repercussions against those who hinder the provision of our services, be such hindrance direct or indirect.
Being a rescue organization, we hope other players would respect our cause, but expect this to not always be the case.
Below is a categorical list of infractions and the results that would accompany our response. These responses can be applied on an individual basis, all the way up to entire organizations.
This list is in no way complete, and will be updated as needed.
Persons in this category (including allies or affiliates of Eyes & Ears) have no infractions presently to Eyes & Ears knowledge including:
○ Those that have had no previous harmful interaction with Eyes & Ears
○ Those who have completed the process of Reconciliation and have not committed an offense since this process
Persons in this category are automatically considered friendly and not deemed threatening. Both sides are expected to conduct themselves in a cooperative manner.
Should any incident breakout, a recommendation will be made to the superior(s) of their organization(s).
This is a special subcategory which belongs in "Clear", see above.

Please note: Although threat levels can be raised when in our in-game presence, this is a mostly knowledge based system of rating where we will gather data from several areas including other trusted players, player based law enforcement (where applicable), forum posts, the Community page, and public or private Discord content regardless of the server it appears on.
Keep in mind that lower level offenses will stack which may push repeat offenders into higher indexed levels.
