What Is The Activity Policy?

While we are a laid-back community, we require all XGN members (not on LOA) to remain active within the community in order to keep their memberships active. Participating is what makes this community grow and brings members together ensuring we remain a healthy and active organization.

  • Console Activity: As listed in the Rank Descriptions,”members of XGN are required to take part in squad meetings, gamenights and activities a minimum of twice a month“.
  • Website/Forums Activity: As stated in “Code of Conduct Rule 14” “All members of XGN must remain active on the the XGN website, with a minimum of 5 post per month. Officers may request more participation, but members are not “required” to do more than their rank calls for.”
  • Attendance: Every member of XGN is important to the overall success of OUR community. When you are not here, someone else must do your job. Consequently, you are expected to report to games, practices, and meetings on time at the scheduled start of the day. Reporting to games, practices, and meetings shows initiative and responsibility.

Ranks & Awards

How do I achieve the 7, why is it important?

The number 7 or VII represents the day XGN was created, 7/7 by 7 people. Members who complete a successful Squad-Split as General and become Co-Founders can take the 7’s test and be cleared to join the elite by placing a 7 or VII in their gamertag.

Whats does Flagship Division mean?

When a division gets to 500 members, a division leader can start working towards splitting his/her division. To split a division, they must receive flagship first, by asking a director.

The director will approach the C.C.O and ask if that specific division may split. They will both then evaluate all the officers within that division. If all is approved, the director must go down and start the flagship process, making sure all squads have all officers in place, and all CMS and tags are the same. They will then go through each tag and make sure all bios and uniforms of all squad members are correct otherwise they will be removed.

If the division falls under 450 members, they will lose their flagship status and have to reapply. The Division will have one week to get any removed members corrected and back on CMS, or their numbers back to 500 to receive flagship once again.

It is mandatory that:



  • At least 90% of the division must be verified to be in the XGN Club
  • Every uniform must be the same by XGN standards
  • All staff positions must be filled before splitting
  • Flagship must be obtained before splitting
  • There are some exceptions at XGN Sr Leadership’s discretion!

To receive flagship, a division must have a full division staff. All squads must have full staff, and all members’ bios,mottos, and uniforms must be correct.

How do I rank up in XGN?

Ranking Up in XGN

 All officer positions are voluntary. No one within the community gets paid for their work, so we prefer to offer them a high level of respect as officers for what they do to keep the community running. There are five primary ways in which members can rank up within XGN.

       

  1. Recruiting--We’re always looking for new, quality members willing to play and help better the community.
  1. Posting on the Forums- Our forums are one of our primary communication tools within XGN. As a result, we prefer members to utilize the tools we’ve given and it is necessary that all members, regardless of rank, stay active on the XGN forums.
  1. Attending Meetings– These are the primary way we communicate new information such as policy changes, staff updates, and upcoming events within XGN. As a result, to truly immerse oneself within the community, one should attempt to make as many of these meetings as possible. These are typically hosted by either the General, Colonel, Major, or First Captain.
  1. Attending Workshops / Game nights- The primary educational tool within XGN, workshops are informative meetings that focus on a single aspect of the community or squad that a officer in a squad or General has chosen to focus on. If something is being taught to a group of members via one of these, it is considered a workshop. Officers should be present to regulate these and only Lieutenants and above are allowed to host them. Attending Game Nights which are mostly just fun meetings where members get together to simply play, as a group, the game of their choosing. An officer does need to be present, however, they can be hosted by any member regardless of rank.
  1. Name change- This is done by putting “XGN” in their gamer tags. For example, if a Sergeant, changing their gamer tag to reflect XGN earns them an immediate single rank promotion upon contacting their General. All Game gamer tag changes should be reported to the squad officers to keep the CMS and squad tag well-regulated and up to date. Keep in mind, however, and notify new members that changing their gamer tag is not a requirement to join XGN. It is only a requirement if they wish to be the rank of Lieutenant or above to better represent their squad and community.

How do I rank up quickly?

Stay around, build, be nice, and don’t ask where your rank is. If you build for it, it will come.

How do I get awards?

There is a detailed thread here on “How to get awards” which will show you what you need and how you would go about submitting awards.

Who is in charge of giving out awards?

The AAP Staff. (Achievement and Award Program)

Miscellaneous

Why do people say bad things about XGN?

It’s impossible to say for certain but one can imagine it’s based off of jealousy and hatred. When you have a community as big as XGN it’s impossible not to create enemies. Anytime 1 members makes us look bad it reflects on us all. Also some rumors and hate are spread by ex-members who simply desire to destroy what we’ve built in hopes to make themselves seem better or take members from here. It’s the world. At the end of the day we’re all just normal people on the otherside of these mics who love to play games with friends!

Are the rumors about Mr XGN true?

Nope, Mr XGN is in his early 20’s and have been leading gaming communities since he was 13. He’s been online everyday since 2005 (sorta sad lol) and has been happily in a relationship for nearly 5 years. For the longest times enemies of Mr XGN, even when he was in KSI haters would try and DOX him (find his identity) to target him and his family.

Why doesn't Mr XGN share his identity?

Mr XGN has been a leader in gaming organizations since Halo 2 and part of the agreement with his grandmother he promised to not share his first name, last name and other private information in exchange he could play Xbox Live. The years passed and his grandmothers over-protective behavior stuck with him, so he continued to only tell online friends his middle name, Cory. Since then many people have attempting to “guess” Mr XGN’s identity and “expose” him, all being unsuccessful. It become some sort of game. It sums up to this, privacy.

Has Mr XGN ever been arrested?

No, Mr XGN has never been arrested, received a parking ticket or Jaywalked. He’s just a nerd who plays Xbox and somehow has a beautiful girlfriend.. (is mr xgn typing this?… yea :

How should I deal with XGN haters?

Essentially there will always be haters no matter what you do in life and that’s just how it is. However you can always avoid them by blocking communications. Haters often only hate to seek a reaction and once given that pleasure they take that as a win. Blocking them and denying them of the attention they grave grants you the satisfaction and the W!

What do you mean by "being active"?

So we factor in a lot here at XGN that we consider when looking at how “active” a member is.
