  1. About Phantom Rebels Phantom Rebels is a multi-gaming family friendly community started in 2004 by MadMax. See our servers page for list of current active games. Discord Server Our Discord is open to everyone. There are no age restrictions on our Discord server and for this reason it is heavily moderated. We only allow swearing in "the bar" channel, We do not tolerate abuse towards other users. https://discord.gg/MwSW2Qt History of Phantom Rebels Phantom Rebels has always existed in some form or another and was started back in 2004 on a FPS called Delta Force: Back Hawk Down by MadMax, at the time this was Phantom Rebels only active game but was very successful with over 100 active members. We had a server that was constantly full, so full in fact we had to often kick non members out of it to make room for them! As my interest in the game DF:BHD declined I found myself playing more and more World of Warcraft and officially started a guild on this sometime towards the end of 2010. Starting our very small but became active and popular, like our previous server on DF:BHD our WoW guild took off and before we knew it there were over 500 members, though half of those were likely alts. Sadly sometime in 2018 the guild was deleted and no longer exists. We briefly ran a Battlefield 4 server which was full at all times and often you could find DICE employees on the server too! Important members in Phantom Rebels Past & Present Members mentioned below may not still be active with us, but they will never be forgotten! Dave Barber Known as Limey I got to meet Dave in person, he now runs Falorn Hope / United Kingdom alliance. Jamie Belfiore Characters: Mezmerise, Epixcheeks, Mezmerised, Mexlol After a few months of playing world of warcraft I ran into someone called Jamie Belfiore who i consider a friend... we have been over 8 realms in the game together and keep in touch as much as possible. Jamie helped out with the guild on Malorne and while he took no large parts in the forming of the guild he did help give idea's feedback and his opinions etc which came in helpful. Jamie now is playing as a horde but still hangs out on Discord. Fact: Jamie is actually the coolest person i've met (he builds race cars!!!). Jorge Vera Characters: Jissan, Jikido Jorge helps the guild more then he thinks! Even though he wont take the role as a LT. GM Jorge does always come in teamspeak and is very social. Jorge will do anything to help guild members and me where needed.... words cannot describe how grateful I am to have a friend like Jorge. Even while typing this our he is telling me there are spelling mistakes on the site :lol: Others: TheFenix, Aloisia, Merrick, Saraswati

  4. As you can see Phantom Rebels has a brand new community site that is live here now. As this is brand new I took the decision to start it from scratch and copied over very limited select posts from the old website. If you notice any issues with the site please let me know either by replying or private message.
  5. Phantom Rebels Discord Information Phantom Rebels uses Discord which is free software that has chat and voice channels. You can download Discord here. Please click this link to join our Discord server - https://discord.gg/MwSW2Qt
  6. This may appear unneeded but due to a select few individuals since starting Phantom Rebels we have had to write it. It is also a reminder that here at Phantom Rebels we take being "dramaless" seriously and will use the below system to its fullest to ensure Phantom Rebels remains that way. The Commander-in-Chief and founder of Phantom Rebels is MadMax and is abbreviated as CiC. The CiC has the authority to review decisions made by anyone. If the CiC does not agree with the decision a discussion will take place with the CiC making a final decision. Members who feel they have been unfairly removed can ask for a discussion to take place, this can only happen if all party's involved agree to the discussion. Updated: 19/01/2019 Phantom Rebels operate's a "strike system" meaning that any member, officer, staff member or director with 3 strikes logged will be kicked and/or banned from Phantom Rebels. Remember this system works in accordance with the Phantom Rebels Rules This system applies to Directors. Officers, Staff, members and officers. Directors or Officers that get one strike will be demoted to member, any further strikes will lead to them being removed from Phantom Rebels. Admins and staff members that get one strike will be demoted, any further strikes will lead to them being removed from Phantom Rebels. HOW STRIKES ARE GIVEN 1st Strike A written or verbal warning by an officer or above. This will be given over a private in-game chat message, over Discord or email through the website. Strike removal: After 30 days (1 Month) has passed without further rule breaking. The CiC can opt to have the member in question remain at "strike 1 status" permanently. 2nd Strike The member in question has already received 1 strike or broken one of the rules mentioned in the 2 strike section below. This will be written or mailed in-game to the member in question. This may be written in game chat in front of other guild members. At this point the individuals membership status is seriously being questioned by staff and leadership and is being reviewed / monitored. Strike removal: After 90days / 3 Months has passed without further rule breaking. The CiC can opt to have the member in question remain at "strike 2 status" permanently. 3rd Strike Members at this strike level will have already been banned/kicked or asked to leave Phantom Rebels. Staff, Senior officers & Directors can implement 3 strikes on a member. Only directors can implement 3 strikes on a staff member or officer in severe cases. 3 strikes are permanent unless the member was kicked for being inactive. 3 strike removal: Commander-in-Chief decision only COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF ROLE IN DIRECTOR, OFFICER, STAFF & MEMBER REMOVAL The CiC reserves the right to remove Council members, Officers, staff and members from Phantom Rebels at any time for any reason or no reason at all. The CiC can further opt to have individuals permanently blacklisted from Phantom Rebels. DIRECTOR, STAFF & OFFICER - MEMBER REMOVAL Officers and above may remove individuals from Phantom Rebels as they see fit if the individual in question is breaking rules or disrupting the normal flow of Phantom Rebels. Directors, Staff or Officers felt abusing powers will incur three strikes and thus be removed themselves. THE STRIKES & WHAT THEY MEAN 1 Strike - This is normally given for minor offences. Excessive swearing in in-game chat or Discord channels other then "The Bar" when warned to stop. Admin/Officer TBA will normally be handing these out for members they feel are excessively swearing in-game chat, or otherwise disrupting the normal flow of Phantom Rebels. Admin/Officer TBA is further authorized to demote members on the spot until they can be dealt with. 2 Strikes - This is normally given for more serious offences such as: Breaking rule: 4 or 6 Repeat violations of rule 7 Breaking rule: 10. The use of cheats/hacks will not be tolerated. Others as needed 3 Strikes - Given for the most serious offences such as: Decision of the Phantom Rebels CiC Being abusive towards another member, admin, officer, staff, Director or the CiC Swearing maliciously at another member, admin, officer, staff, Director or the CiC Breaking rule: 2. If you make no contact with Phantom Rebels for over a month you will be removed from Phantom Rebels. You will be kicked for breaking rule 2 but may return at a later time if you wish. Contact means any member of Phantom Rebels Director, Staff or Officer decision, if member has broken rules listed on the site and individual enforcing the rule in question feels the member should be removed immediately to avoid further disruption / upset to other members. Admins & senior officers may give members 3 strikes if they are disrupting the normal flow of Phantom Rebels. If you incur three strikes for repeated minor offences the person enforcing the strikes will make an effort to explain to you why you are being removed and try and hold a civil discussion (where possible). If you incur an immediate three strikes for an extreme breach of our rules, you may not be told you have been given three strikes, and will simply be removed "EJECTED" from Phantom Rebels.
  7. Phantom Rebels was founded back in 2004 by myself (MadMax). There have been circumstances over the years where individual members have been found to cause issues or disrupt the community, as such I have written a few things below, they should not to be taken as gospel, but can be referred to at any time by staff and enforced to whatever degree is needed as determined by those enforcing said rule. These are never a complete set of rules as we may find things we wish to add over-time, it is up-to members to ensure they are up-to-date on rules and we will do our best to ensure sudden rule changes are made aware to members. We reserve the right to add, amend, remove or suspend any rule(s) at any time, this clause is here to allow the community staff to be flexible and manage the community effectively. =============================================================================================================== These rules apply to members listed as a Phantom Rebels member listed here. These rules work in accordance with the Phantom Rebels strike system Updated: 19/01/2019 Phantom Rebels Rules If you plan on leaving Phantom Rebels we kindly ask that you tell a staff member why, as if this is due to something that can be changed we will do everything in our power to do so. If you make no contact with a Phantom Rebels member for over a month you will be removed from Phantom Rebels. You may be removed for breaking this but can return at any time. While playing under the Phantom Rebels name we kindly ask that you are present in a Discord voice channel when possible. We understand there are times where this is not possible, but being in a voice chat shows activity within the community and encourages others to engage and that community feel is what we are all here for. Whilst under the Phantom Rebels name you are representing Phantom Rebels and must behave appropriately. This means but not limited to: not being abusive, racist, harassing others, using slurs or spamming chat channels Doing anything else staff find disruptive to the community. Follow other communities server rules when playing in other game servers under the Phantom Rebels name. Other clans who feel our members have broken this please contact us here Being abusive in-game or in Discord will not be tolerated. Will result in disciplinary action / a strike or removal from Phantom Rebels. As we have allow members of all ages it's important to remember who is in the channel with you while on Discord. We provide a dedicated Discord voice channel (The Bar) that swearing is allowed in, while not in that channel please watch what you say while in front of our younger members. You may be moved to "The Bar" if found using excessive language in front of younger members. This rule can be relaxed at times and is solely at a staff members discretion if present. A more senior staff member can reinstate this rule without needing a reason. The use of cheats, hacking or bots will not be tolerated. You will be banned and may be reported if found doing so. If in a voice channel and instructed by a staff member to "clear comms" that means to pause speaking immediately, failure may lead to removal from the channel. Rarely used but there are times staff need to be heard without interruption. Phantom Rebels members may request new rules and they will be considered by the Phantom Rebels leaders, Please post your request in the members forum on the site. MOST IMPORTANT RULE - IS TO HAVE FUN!! These rules are taken very seriously by all Phantom Rebels staff and members.
