Punishments can and will range from suspension from Teamspeak, emotions on the website, or even a disablement from the clan depending on the severity. Members

As much as OD strives to be a fair community that acknowledges the hard work of all their members, in reality there are circumstances where Division Leaders or Administrators fail to notice the efforts of some members because they are inactive, distracted, or just kinda suck at their job. It is for those situations that OD has enabled the ability for members to put themselves up onto the promotion pending list. This is legal, and their promotion still depends upon the positive votes of their peers from the Promotion Pending List. There are very specific conditions that should be met before self-promoting is considered acceptable.
- The purpose of self-promoting is to compensate for situations where a member has not been properly recognized for their feats. This means there must have been enough time gone by to have provided leaders and admins the opportunity to recognize them. If it's only been a few days since a member is eligible for promotion, that's not a reasonable frame of time to give other peopoloe an opportunity to recognize your efforts. The generally accepted amount of time is thirty (30) days. If a member has put in a consistent amount of noticeable hard work with obvious accomplishments and has failed to receive recognition for a whole month since their last promotion, then the community will usually accept the need for them to self-promote.
- There has to be a real, easily recognized efforts and results by the person who put themselves up for promotion. You can't just put yourself up for promotion because you're "very active", you need to have done something that people will universally agree was helpful and provided a solid contribution to the Clan. Self-Promotions are very controversial by nature, so for best effect, the results need to be something no one would dispute as being worthy of a promotion. Furthermore, any and all self promotions must be put up with a null vote. Do not add votes to your self-promotion. It must always be zero(0).
- If your next promotion would change tier( i.e. from Enlisted to Warrant Officer) or if you're an officer or higher, you should never ever self-promote yourself, no matter the circumstance. Officers should always achieve their recognition from their peers, and tier changing promotions are considered too significant in the clan to be self-judged.
"But Terra, if we aren't supposed to be using self-promotions more often than 30 days, why does the website allow us to use it every 7 days?"
At any given time the number of scripters that Overdosed has available to work on our website averages about zero(0). Once every so often we manage to achieve 1. The reality is that our community develops at a much faster rate in which the website can be altered to adjust, and the result of that is there is already a long to-do list of changes that our staff need to work on in their free time, which is accomplished in order of priority. So, keep yourself up-to-date on how the modern-day OD clan operates. Think smart. Work Smart. Play smart.

- Any improperly tagged characters will be asked to remake the character name.
- There are NO exceptions to this rule.
- Any character not renamed after being asked to change it several times will be kicked from the channel when an OP or Officer sees it in the channel.
- If you have multiple accounts, they need to be tagged as follows: Name(OD), Name(OD)1, Name(OD)2 and so on.
- All non OD accounts will be held the same standard as your OD account, no one else should ever be logged into the acount.
- All level jobs are forbidden from the use of bots.
- All levels obtained on an OD account and non-OD accounts need to be done by the owner of the account only. There is no regulation on following runs hosted by bots. (Obviously not a bot run by an OD member.)
- Double clanning is not allowed in D2.
The clan channel has rules of it's own and they'll be upheld strictly. There will be no slacking on enforcing the rules in the Clan Channel. All Warrant Officers and higher have access to the Channel Operators. Access to the Channel Operators is given by rank, not by request, so do not ask for access. If there is any abuse, any and all access will be removed regardless of rank.
- Do not spam the channel with unnecessary messages.
- Try to condense your messages the best you can, so that you don't have 20 one word messages. This will make the channel much easier to read and your responses easier to understand.
- Please do not idle in the channel for extended periods of time.
- Idling in the channel for more than 4 hours (14,400 seconds) will get you temporarily kicked.
- Do NOT bm ANYONE in the channel, clan member or not. This will be enforced very strictly.
- You will have one (1) warning only.
- Repeated bm will get you kicked from the channel.
- Even further bm, and you'll receive a timed ban, usually a 24 hour ban.
- If you still continue to bm in the channel you will be demoted.
- Raging about the punishments received if you break any rules will result in a ban, demotion, and possibly worse, depending on the severity of the rage.
- While there's no rule in OD that states you cannot use foul language, do keep it in check. Don't send messages that contain overly foul language. Try to keep it relatively clean. We are not Nazi's, but there's no need to swear every other word in your message.
- Channel Operator access is a privilege! Any privilege can be removed. Just because you've achieved a rank, doesn't mean you're immune to having your access revoked.
While D2Jsp.org is not a requirement in Overdosed, it's strongly encouraged that you be active in JSP and learn it's mechanics. All D2jsp rules will apply when making bids, or buying items on JSP. We have a guild on jsp. All OD members are welcome to join the guild. You will be given a rank based on what your rank is in Overdosed; General, Senior Officer, Officer, Warrant Officer, or Enlisted.
Any and all violations of these rules can be reported to any Officer, SEnior Officer, or General. When you bring a report of any of these rule violations, bring enough proof with you. Proof can be anything from a screenshot, recording, date and time (If it happened in the clan channel. The ops owners can check their logs.)

- Any member found removing Guild Warehouse items and selling them for personal profit will have their access removed without question pending a probation period to get it back.
- Probation period will last depending on the severity of the issue that caused the probation and cannot be lifted without prior consent of The Council
- Swtor Leadership reserves the right to suspend anyone's access to the Guild Bank if deemed necessary, or pending an investigation.
- Buying gold from gold sellers is strictly prohibited. Not only does it violate the EULA for Star Wars (which would in turn violate a Community rule), it is to protect our members from potentially buying gold, and not getting what they paid for.
- We have guilds for both Republic and Empire sides, and welcome all of your toons, regardless of what side you play for. It is expected you actively maintain at least one of your characters in the clan. Any toon that has higher than 1 year since 'last played' may be subject to removal from the in-game guild (full OD member or not).
Please follow all community rules.

- If any issues arise, the leadership is always around to discuss the problem and search for a positive outcome.
- If leadership causes drama within the division that, in the end, has the ability to harm the division or a member within the division, a discussion will be made about the leader's position and action will be taken to ensure it does not happen again.
- Keep your DSL low! Try to participate in website and forum discussions when you can!
