* Dedication - We ask that upon joining, you find a way to dedicate yourself to Novus Ordo Gaming, especially in this period of time since we are rebuilding. We aren't asking you to be on every single night, or to donate towards server costs every month, just the little things that can make every other member say "We don't regret accepting his/her application to join. He/she is doing their part here". Be active!
* Attitude/Activity - Each member at nG is here to have a great time. While everyone is known to shout "Bullshit!" and other profanity in Ventrilo, we ask that you have a positive attitude towards other members. Just remember, we are all about having fun.
NOG does not make donations mandatory, and very rarely push as operations understands this is a hobby to many. But because of this, Founding Staff does treat this community as not only a hobby, but a small business. There are many things behind the scenes that are completed to ensure everyone has fun and feels important. Being active is just as important as donating. Good luck Have Fun
