All donations are subject to all regular server rules, donations will in no way grant any form of immunity against punishment and can be retracted if the transgressions have been sufficiently deemed as requiring such.

When inheriting a regiment, you will be promoted to Captain, if you are past that threshold you will remain your rank.
If you are being removed from a regiment, the CO must provide ample reasoning about the removal.
Inactivity for a prolonged period of time [7 Days +] without any formal notice can result in removal.
Commanders are expected to keep an up-to-date roster of players within their regiment and are expected to comply with the numerical limit set on their regiment.
