LKG Mission Statement

Welcome to Low-Key Gaming [LKG].  

We are a community put together and built for the purpose of our member’s enjoyment. It is the result of VERY hard work by the people who forged its steel.  We focus on member maturity and respect towards each community member. We are comprised of many different people from all walks of life, with different perspectives, backgrounds, races, creeds, religions, and ideologies.  When gaming and interacting with each other, you should show them the same respect and maturity that you would like to receive in return. This applies to our teamspeak, game servers, forums and other public gameservers; for as long as [LKG] is attached to your name. You will need to act like an adult, be respectful and adhere to the standards set forth by our Board members and Founders.

The environment we provide...
We provide a cheat free, stable, and fun community gaming experience to all LKG members and public guests.  We host many different servers varying genres of computer gaming, a website with informative forums, and a voice over IP client via teamspeak.  We work very hard to keep glitchers, scripters, ass-hats and hackers at bay through investigation and gaming knowledge.  We promote teamwork, community, and the betterment of all members.  We are a community and everyone is welcome as long as they can be respectful to the games we play and the gamers we share our environment with.

What being part of the team means...
[LKG] members work together in and out the games we play.  Members assist others with basic game knowledge, computer technical support, and sometimes in their personal lives as well.  Nothing is off limits when it comes to helping another member of our community and nothing is expected except general respect and acceptance.  When in game, teamwork is to be the focus and basis for our members.  Through teamwork even our lowest ranking member is a key instrument on the battlefield.  When your teammates need assistance: offer it. Try to work together to capture objectives, defend positions, and use the skills to assist your squad and team.  Communication skills are very important to any team in any game.  Establish a line of communication, call out enemy positions, relay team objectives and notify team mates to any changes in your environment.  When using teamwork and communication, [LKG] can rule the battlefield and win the round.

The community structure...
We use a democratic hieratical structure for administration purposes.  All members have a say in the decisions for the community.  We have three active Board members for decisions that cannot wait for community votes to be taken, handle public relation issues, and deal with infractions of the community rules.  Board members are comprised of the founders of the community who have been with the community from the beginning; making sound decisions to build the community up from where it started.  Head admin members are members that can assist other members in decisions while gaming and act as sponsors to members. Head Admins act as the main liaisons in the field and games they operate in between the community and its members and guests. The Board members and Head Admin do not control the community; they were established to help other members and make snap decisions until a formal meeting may be called in order to vote on matters at hand.  NO ONE MEMBER MAY MAKE AN UNCHANGABLE DECISION.  Temporary decisions may be questioned and changed by community vote at any time.  Members are promoted and/or demoted from Board and Head admin positions based on their ability to handle the responsibilities.

Community Meetings...
We hold monthly meetings to deal with community decisions.  Any idea or suggestion may be made by any member and will be entertained.  Basic +1/-1 votes will be taken to decide the outcome of all decisions and all members votes are to be considered equal.  Board/Head Admin meetings are held more frequently to handle snap decisions of "micro issues" and are often called based on the need for quick decisions.  Community meetings are not mandatory, but if you want your vote to be counted be present.

Donations....
There is no requirement for member donations to maintain a [LKG] tag in any form.  Although, donations are VERY welcome as our operating costs exceed the budgets of those who organize the community.  With various game servers, teamspeak, forums, admin tools, and more we try to give our members the best experience they can have with a community. This comes at a price and something a handful of people at LKG take the brunt of.  Any help in keeping our valued assets that we provide in alive is always appreciated, in any amount possible.  The donation link can be found here: http://low-key.us/donations/ .  All monies donated are tracked and a detailed financial record can be shown to any member at any time, to show that your money is not being stolen and/or wasted. It all goes towards our monthly server rental, admin programs ,teamspeak server, and community raffles,  PERIOD.
Beyond financial donations, other members can donate their time and experience to help the community.  We have many issues that require time and effort; from web design, server admin, server seeding and investigation of suspicious activities and/or players.  All donations, whether they are monies or time are greatly appreciated and needed to sustain the community.


Conduct of [LKG] Members...
Any [LKG] Member, Head Admin or Board Member found to show poor conduct, lack of maturity towards other members will be dealt with swiftly and sternly.  Corrective actions may include having their position removed or even removed from the LKG community entirely.  Racism and sexism in public servers or our own servers is subject to immediate review by the Board members and may result in removal from the community.  We hold a very high standard when it comes to members. We take this very seriously.  You may be warned and given a second chance, but only if the Board feels you can improve and mature.  ANY MEMBER FOUND TO BE USING COMPUTER AIDED HACKS, SCRIPTS and/or GLITCHES will be removed immediately from the community and banned from all servers, websites and teamspeak.


In Conclusion....
We expect, at the very least, common sense and decency with our members and admin alike.  This is a requirement without exception.  We are all different, but again this is common sense and is something we use a whole lot of here at LKG.
