Title: Imperial Guard Chain of Command
Post by: Goyder on May 22, 2006, 01:39:58 AM
CoC FAQ

Greetings

As you may or may not have noticed, certain posters on 40k Online have Custom Titles that correspond to military ranks.  These posters are members of the 40th Corps(Imperial Guard Forum) Chain of Command.

How does one become a member of the Chain of Command?

Simply put, you must be recommended by current officer, and then approved by one of the Imperial Guard Forum Moderators, who will give you a Custom Title and add you to the Chain of Command.

There are certain qualities that we look for in posters, such as...


What are the duties of an officer?

The most important role of an officer is to set an example.  Officers are chosen from the best posters on the Imperial Guard Forum, and are expected to be role models.  They are to hold themselves to the conduct required to become an officer, and provide guidance to new Guard players, and critique the Vets, enhancing everyones abilities.

All officers are also expected to keep tabs not only upon each other, but upon prospective Chain of Command recruits.  All officers have the power to recommend new officers for commission or promotions for other officers. 

It is not the sole job of the Moderators to pick prospective officers!

The Mods can't be here all the time.  The Chain of Command looks out for itself, and if an officer feels that someone should be commissioned or promoted, it is their Duty to recommend them.  Remember that you yourself were recommended at some point.

How does the ranking system work?

The current system is based off both current military chain of commands and the rank structure proposed in the Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer.  The current tree is as follows:


Other ranks may be given to retired officers of particular merit, or to Moderators. See the CoC list above for Officers awarded particular custom titles for long service. These are under the "Honourifica Imperialis" section.

What if an officer is not abiding by Forum Rules?

It is the duty of any poster, officer or not, to report an officer acting out of line to one of the IG Forum Moderators.  It is not your duty to confront them yourself.  Proper action will be taken.

Do note that bringing insubstantial charges against an officer will result in penalties to yourself.

Can I give myself a rank in my user name?

Absolutely.  This cannot be policed by the Chain of Command, and you can put any rank into your user name.  However this is frowned upon by some officers as a sign of disrespect towards the proper Chain of Command, and may decrease your chances of earning a commission.

Certain enlisted ranks, such as Trooper, Corporal and Sergeant, are perfectly fine, and can be used as a way of letting people know that you are interested in the Chain of Command.

The Most Important Aspect of the 40th Corps CoC
The Chain of Command is a rewards system for the 40kO Imperial Guard community, where the best and brightest posters here recieve Commission and a Custom Title, and the opportunity to 'rise through the ranks' so to speak.

In order to avoid complaint of favoritism, we will generally not promote people unless they are recommended by regular IG posters or members of the Chain of Command.

Current Members - You got your place because someone saw that you were fit for the position.
If you know someone who deserves the chance to be part of the CoC, recommend them to Lord Princeps ChosenMan via PM.

The Chain of Command stagnates when people aren't recommended by other officers. With the new changes to the C-O-C, i thought it best to do a brief summary here on what the new rules are.

Officers of the Chain of Command;
Their rule is to cruise the boards and insure that everything is okay, they'll keep things in line and ensure flamewars and the like don't start up. Its also up to them to report major infractions to us Moderators, and generally be helpfull members of the community (like they already are) and help people out where needed. And of course, they scout the boards for any new commissions and promotions for that they feel are deserving.

Promotion Announcements

Promotion Announcements will be in this thread.

If there are any major changes to the C.O.C, you will expect to see a Moddissar Announcement for it. We will keep you informed of any major changes, dont you worry!

Regarding the Senior Ranks

One problem that we've had with the CoC since it's conception is stagnation among the Senior ranks (Colonels and Generals).

To fix this problem, we have decided to implement a 'Distinguished Service' sector in the CoC.  Recipients of such merit from the senior ranks will be selected every once in a while to be given a personal Custom Title in line with their style of play, and removed from the CoC proper.  Of course, they will still be afforded your respect as due to Officers of the Chain of Command. This is the "Honourifica Imperialis" noted above.

Nubis has retired.

I am now the New Lord Moddissar General.

That is all.

What Really Happened [/b]

Fighting has been raging within the Dodecahedron (Imperial Guard CoC headquarters, so (mis)named due to the IG’s famous lack of geometry training and fondness of impressive sounding words) for the past few hours. Communication is sketchy but from what outsiders have managed to piece together it seems that Goyder has risen up in mutiny against his rightful commander. Eye witnesses to the initial event claim that Goyder smuggled in a cavalry saber, cunningly disguised in a bottle of gin, into Nubis’ presence before attempting to assassinate the unsuspecting Modissar General with a backhand swipe with three quarter twist and follow through (degree of difficulty 8.2). Nubis was seemingly not as oblivious as previously thought and managed to block the blow with his chest of medals. Since that time the fighting has spread. Both parties have attempting to send stand down orders to their respective commanders. So far no IG regiment has attempted to leave barracks or draw war stocks beyond ordinary training allotments.

As hostilities consumed the halls of the Dodecahedron, Colonel O’Rum immediately ordered a lockdown upon the HQs stockpiles of Tactical Nuclear Hand Gestures, and Theatre Grade Verbal Jabs. Once the possible flaming devices were under his own personal codes and authority, O’Rum dispatched his own attendants and honour guard (known as O’Rums Own be-atches) to secure the area liquor cabinets. No matter who was to win this conflict the booze supplies must be maintained! It was only after these security measures were implemented that O’Rum opened a direct communications line to his superiors.

“I say sir(s), please clarify matters?” No reply was forthcoming. O’Rum waited…..

Soon, the fighting was over and now all that was left to do was the clean up. The Dodecahedron was a smoking mess after the two sides to this conflict has clashed amongst its walls. Titans lay shattered amongst the debris. The damage not caused by the internal fighting but merely due to a savage and most unexpected valet failure. Overhead ships of the Imperial Navy circled ominously. Not out of a sense of duty or brotherhood but mainly as they liked looking at the pretty flashes and colours from the ground below.
   
With a sigh and an expulsion of bowel gas O’Rum levered the remains of his desk from against the wall where he’d been sheltering and commanding his post. His office was a shambles but there was nothing new in that. O’Rum had once returned from a long deployment to discover a company of Storm Troopers being accredited with hazardous environment training on his desk. In fact, O’Rum suspected they were still in there somewhere, attempting to decontaminate themselves from the residue of his coffee cup.
   
Silence returned to the area other than the muffled sobbing of the junior officers as they attempted to rationalize this new existence. “Quiet in the ranks,” commanded O’Rum in his usual technique of noise over substance. Shout, shout, and shout again was the standard operating procedure. “You have your orders. Our new Lord Moddissar will be according the rights and privileges of his position.”
   
O’Rum left his office, through a convenient hole in the wall, to report directly to the new Lord Moddissar. Such matters were best taken care of personally and quickly in these matters lest one finds themselves removed from the list labeled “reliable” and placed on the much larger list labeled “expendable.”
   
When O’Rum finally located him, Goyder was in the middle of burning the previous Lord Moddissar’s collection of awards and certificates. “I say sir,” began O’Rum, “may I congratulate you on your sudden and well earned…… promotion, as it were. To start the healing process I suggest we immediately launch in with a sudden round of promotions. To reward those who have proven loyal to you. By round, I mean me, and by sudden I mean only me.”


The Moddissar is dead, long live the Moddissar!

Gentlemen, I shall be your Marshall for a time while Spiteful is being reeducated retrained made useful. Goyder is also currently unavailable due to some unknown cad replacing his bionics oils and lubricants with a sandy slurry. Please ignore the shouting behind the door as he clearly wants to be left alone.

My rule shall be a kind and gentle one until Spiteful returns.

Edit: Oh, by the way, you are all horizontally promoted to  Gue'vesa. (http://uk.games-workshop.com/tau/tau-auxiliaries/)  Congratulations to all and welcome to the Greater Good.  :)

Of course it's a joke.

The Imperial Guard Chain of Command is undergoing restructuring in an attempt to keep the board from stagnation. The following members are now classed as retired. They will keep their titles but be removed from key posts. Furthermore, I am looking for fresh faces.

If we can get the projects and Chain of Command moving again, we should see this board back in shape in no time. As per usual, any retiring officers are more than welcome to make a return.

Retiring Officers and Promotions:
Goyder has been retired from Lord Moddissar since his promotion and subsequent inactivity.
--------
No Generals have been retired, due to their current online status.
--------
No Colonels have been retired as yet, due to their current online status. This may change.
--------
Lieutenant Colonel Nightblade has been reitred due to inactivity.
Khemri has been promoted.
--------
Cheese Theif has been retired due to inactivity.
The Green Witch has been retired due to inactivity.
Aliaros has been promoted to Major.
Andromidius has been promoted to Major.
--------
Captain was a hard rank to deal with, as many of our quality posters are Captains. In the end, I chose Aliaros for his contributions to raising the Imperial Profile with his battle reports, and Andromidius for his long service. No Captains have been retired, but two have been promoted.
Killersquid is now a Captain.
Lt. Striker is now a Captain.
--------
Jazz Nazz has been retired due to inactivity.

Now the restruturing has taken place, we could do with fresh blood. Those seeking promotion should contact me, Rummy, or Spiteful and continue posting in an informative and helpful way. The posting will be the thing most taken into consideration when deciding upon candidates.

For the new Codex, we've been messing things up a bit. After consultation between the Moderators and the upper ranks of the Chain of Command, we are pleased to announce a wave of commissions, and saddened by the loss of our inactive members.

Remember, Simba, any member of the Chain of Command can make an honourable mention to the powers that be for the commission of others. The problem with a lack of updates has not been a lack of good candidates - indeed, many have come and gone - but the scourge of laziness that affe... *Snore*

Where was I?

Oh yes, congratulations to the following members. You've earned it! (Some of you earned it a long time ago, but such are the workings of government ;))

Another big round of congratulations to the promoted officers.
We'd have done it sooner, but we first had to gas all the sleeping officers before we had a spot for you. They were all traitorous Tau scum anyways, so feel no remorse.

Congratulations to our new Majors. Which finally became Majors after I realized that I'd not actually changed their profiles. I was caught up in the fanfare. It was so emotional.

Yeah, the above members have finally been promoted proper.

[And Wuxiong has been edited in too, since he's been a Lieutenant for quite a while but not actually on the list. Who knows? ;) ]

It was very moving. Seeing a mod work nearly brought me to tears. Now people probably expect me to do something as well. ;( - Spite

It's been a long time since the IG forum handed out an Honorifica Imperialis, I plan on changing that. The Medusa V campaign was the first time the 40th Corps took part in such an event, I along with several others still around were part of that great event. While Goyder was the head of our 40th Corps, Insidious Heresy was given the honor of leading the forces into battle. For this we honor him today with his own Honorifica Imperialis...... Congratulations IH....Hero Of Medusa V!

CM watched as the Aquila Shuttle set down and began it's shut down procedures. "Does Segmentum command expect us to win wars with Brass Officers? I think we have more of them then line officers now....Hmmmmm...may be it might be a good idea to rewrite line officer policy and let our generals lead from the front line....Oooooooo I like it!" The aide nodded and wrote it down as the landers hatch opened and the honor guard came to order.

CM Grinned as he saw the returning general exit and come down to join him. "Well...Well....Welc ome back General Henimann, it's been a few years old friend...I hear you've been on campaign, can't wait to hear some good war tales from you...your experience is welcome!"
