Talk:EVE University Rules
ROE addition- Outlaws in hisec? Today, someone asked about outlaws in hisec, and there is no explicit ROE for that. People keep asking, (they think they can catch pods) so might as well stick it in. Also, it should probably include an overview note in there, saying that good/high-standing MUST be higher than outlaw status, so people don't wind up podding an ally.

In the section regarding Claimable NullSec, I recommend adding the following blurb:
"While not required, it is recommended that all members add the following regions to their avoidance list to help avoid accidents where an autopilot route goes through Claimable NullSec:
- Cloud Ring
- Etherium Reach
- Pure Blind
- Scalding Pass
- Vale of the Silent
To add an entire region to your Autopilot's Avoidance list, go to NeoCom > Map > WORLD MAP CONTROL PANEL > SEARCH. For each region, one at a time, type the name of the region into the search field and press the SEARCH button. When the region shows up as a search result, right-click the result and select AVOID REGION. Repeat for each region."

Seamus, is that list comprehensive? Are all those regions the entirety of 0.0 space? Do they include any non-0.0?

It would be worth making that list and the instructions into a "Using the Autopilot Avoidance" page though, then we can link it. Kelduum revaan 13:00, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
I believe Kelduum is correct: the list I provided should be the list of all player-sovereign space that borders the regions Unistas are allowed in. It's not a complete list of all regions of player-sovereign space (that is, Claimable NullSec), but if you put all those regions on the Avoidance List, then all other player-sovereign space becomes unreachable. As long as the Autopilot is set to obey the avoidance list, you won't be given a course through player-sovereign space.
I'll get around to making an article on Avoidance when I get a chance.

Proposal for a Preface or Epilogue
Through the University's history, members have observed the sometimes harsh realities of policy enforcement actions. Policy enforcement actions are not the only venue for these member observations. Positions are often clarified through discussions in places that include in-game chat, the University forums, and private messaging facilities. Member responses to these communications and actions may include frustration due to a perceived lack of understanding or recourse and anger for perceived disrespect. A member who pursues personal satisfaction for these situations to address their negative perceptions may find instead that they're experiencing further resentment. They discover that the University is not a democracy. Members may find that, due to negative feelings or the desire for a situation more personally compatible, their only recourse for satisfaction is leaving the University.
It is important to understand that these dynamics are to be expected. Regardless of how it happens, the vast majority of University members outgrow this organization and leave. This is not a defect -- it is the University fulfilling its mission.
Policy action and reinforcement, at its best, does not come from being jaded or egotistical. It comes from the experience of what is necessary to keep the University intact and successful. Espionage, intrigue and interpersonal dramas are not merely a by-product of social structures within Eve Online, as they may be in other MMO games. Instead, they are an encouraged feature. In this environment, the University's goal of maintaining an open and agreeable corporation is effectively equivalent to swimming upstream. The University aims to provide an environment of learning and camaraderie. Boundaries are necessary to maintain the environment the University provides, and those boundaries may be enforced with ruthless efficiency and unwavering resolve. Execution of these policies has nothing to do with bringing you down, stifling your creativity or ruining your fun. It has everything to do with the University continuing to be available for transforming the new and inexperienced into competent and streetwise citizens of New Eden.
I like this, but I would suggest that it should be pithier. Parts of the first paragraph, for example, read to me like a letter from local government ('policy enforcement actions', 'sometimes harsh', 'negative perceptions', 'a situation more personally compatible', 'recourse for satisfaction'). --Uryence 21:56, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Communication Policy - Hostile Parties
Might want to specify what an hostile party is. People with low standings often wander into the E-Uni channel and I'm not sure if I should communicate with them or not at all. I also have had people telling me it's OK to communicate with certain individuals.
There really needs to be a clear rule about this. Make it specific if need be.
