PostSubject: B. Expectations & Enforcement   Tue Jan 24, 2017 5:00 pm

B.1 Owner Responsibilities    
Owners are required to remain active and engaged in all club activities at all times. Participation includes but is not limited to such things as being present for the annual draft, discussing/voting on club matters, responding to e-mails from other owners, submitting valid lineups every week and being active on our forum.  

**While talking "smack" is always a part of some owner's personality and is to be expected (and enjoyed)... inflammatory, overly offensive, or ethnic, racial, or sexual slurs will not be tolerated. The President will have total authority in drawing the line between an "all in fun" brag, joke or "smack" and an inflammatory, offensive or taunting act.  However, this is a league for adults so in no way will there be an expectation to keep things cleaner than an R-rated movie.  Owners will be expected to conduct themselves in a manner that will not disparage the club or any of its members in any way, shape or form.  

In Roster Wars, every owner is equally responsible for monitoring club activities and reporting any infractions.  The following rules on owners conduct are in effect:

A. RWDOC owners are expected to visit our site once every 3 days at the very least on a very regular basis unless prior communication is given for absence.  Owners who typically visit daily would be ideal.  Owners reaching 6 days in absence without prior approved notification of absence will be penalized according to our penalty system.  Also, repeatedly going past the 3 day mark will result in a verbal warning from the President and continual inactivity will be met with an owner penalty or expulsion from the club at the discretion of the President.

B. Owners should respect fellow owners and answer all emails/PM's in a timely manner, with timely manner being defined as within 3 days.  (Within 24 hours would be ideal)

C. Owners are expected to act in the best interest of the club at all times.  This includes bringing any flaws in these bylaws to the attention of the RWP versus exploiting them for personal benefit.

D. Owners are expected to vote on all club proposals brought up for a vote within one week of the polls creation.

E. Owners are expected to inform the RWP if they do not plan on returning to the league as soon as they know that to be the case.

F. Main league owners must be active on the Roster Wars forum.  "Active" is defined as consistently hitting 30+ posts per month (minimum expectation) and not exceeding 15 days without a post without prior approval from the RWP.

B.2 Penalties and Accountability
A. If a substantiated report of an RWDOC owners failure to comply with club rules or expectations is made, the owner will be penalized by the club.  Think of it as a "stupid tax" for those who drop the ball.

B. The penalty for such infractions in Roster Wars are monetary fines.  These monetary fines will be added to the progressive pot where they are available to be won by main league owners of the club.   If the owner refuses to pay the fine, the club will consider the inaction as an immediate resignation from the club.  This action/inaction will not be considered exiting the league in good faith, and thus the insurance money as well as the current years dues will not be refunded.  There are absolutely no exceptions that will be considered.  This is the harshest rule of its kind that we are aware of and it is intended to make weaker owners think hard about whether they belong in the club or how important it is to them since their actions are below expectations.

C. Infractions will stay with a team on a rolling calendar for 1 year.  The 1 year clock begins the date the fine is paid.  Any offenses within the past year are considered when looking at an owners standing with the club and when determining new fine amounts.

D. The fines are as follows:
First offense: $10
Second offense: $25
Third Offense: $50
Fourth Offense: $75
Fifth Offense: $100

E. As long as an owner pays the penalty imposed, they may remain in the club.
***A fine is capped at $100.  Additional penalties will continue to result in $100 fines.  An owner earning multiple fines at this level may lose the right to control their own fate and be removed from the club if the RWP feels it's more appropriate.

F. An owner who receives a fine will have 5 days to pay it.  Exceptions will be made solely at the discretion of the RWP in situations that warrant it.

B.3 RWDOC Activity Tracker
The Roster Wars Activity Tracker spreadsheet can be found from our menu by going to LEAGUE > Activity Tracker.  This spreadsheet is used to track and rank our members based on how they perform up to club expectations.  Members will be ranked on a scale of 1-100.  If members are tied (for example, at 100) those there first remain higher on the ranking.  You can only "pass" another member by beating their ranking.  Therefore, losing even 1 point (especially if you're ranked 100) could cost you many spots on the Tracker that will be very hard to earn back.

If/when there is an opening in the main league of Roster Wars, the highest ranked prospect (colored GREEN on the Tracker will be invited to join the main league.  You've earned it and we know we're getting the best prospect which was our goal all along.  An invitation to the main league will be a one-time thing.  If you PASS (for any reason), you will never have another chance.  The "right owner" for us is the one who will leap at the chance without worrying about what team, situation or whatever else is to be had.

Here is a breakdown of each category found on the Activity Tracker...

Owners Meeting: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Failure to meet club standards will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each year of compliance will earn you 1 point in this category, but again the max is 5 points.

Finances: This category is weighted a 5. At the RWP's discretion, if there are any failures to handle financial obligations the owner will have a point taken away (and these points can never be earned back).

Injured Reserve: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Everyone will start with the maximum 5 points.  Failure to comply with injured reserve bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.

Extensions/Tags: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Everyone will start with the maximum 5 points.  Failure to comply with extensions/tags bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.

Draft: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Everyone will start with the maximum 5 points.  Failure to comply with draft bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.

Contracts: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Everyone will start with the maximum 5 points.  Failure to comply with contracts bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.

Survivor Pool: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Failure to comply with our bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.

NFL Pick'em: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Failure to comply with our bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.

Survey Game: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Owners of the Main league will start with the maximum 5 points.  Failure to comply with our bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.  Minor League Owners will not participate in the Survey Game at this time and thus are not scored.

Lineups: This category is graded 0-20 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Everyone will start with the maximum 20 points.  Failure to comply with our bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.  Failure to deliver a valid lineup is a big deal around here.  An error will cost you two points and a full season of perfect lineups can only earn you one point back.

Trades: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Everyone will start with the maximum 5 points.  Failure to comply with our bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.

Emails: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Everyone will start with the maximum 5 points.  Failure to comply with our bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.

Forum Activity: This category is graded 0-15 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Failure to meet our 30+ post standard will result in a 6 point penalty (six or less will reset to zero).  Successful 30+ post months will earn you 1 point up to the maximum allowed.  Exceeding 15 days without a post is a violation which will result in ALL of your activity points to be cleared and send you to the bottom of the list.

Patch: This category is graded 0-5 based on having a role and following through with it.   Failure to deliver on your role (without prior approval) will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max.  Owners who have infrequent positions will not earn points in months where their role doesn't apply.  Having no role equals no points.

League Survey: This category is graded 0-5 based on the participation terms in our bylaws.  Failure to comply with our bylaws will result in a 2 point penalty.  Each successful year will earn you one point up to the max. This category covers any feedback sought by the RWP so if there is an impromptu poll or something, failure to participate will be scored in this category.
