DUTIES FOR ALL ATF
Read & know these rules!
Cadets are those under 18 but over 13 (no one in ATF tags under 13). There are only two ways to be a cadet. Family member of an ATF member or someone who is an exceptional person that an officer wishes to sponsor. (Officer is basically laying his reputation on the line for this cadet). Cadets do not get access to forums, nor can they be promoted to private until age 18.
Privates are responsible for following the rules and watching themselves. A private has no real function but to show up and play their hearts out as they have just been let into ATF. A new recruit has 48 hours from the time they get the welcome email to log into the forum and put up a post in the New Members folder. FAILURE TO DO SO may result in termination. Recruitment age for ATF is 18.
Corporals are in charge of making sure privates follow the rules and represent ATF in a positive way. If they feel they are not following ATF rules or traditions they will not intervene but mention it to the platoon leader (Sergeant). A corporal also has the responsibility of getting to know all the privates in their platoon, and helping them out with the forums, where ATF goes to play, and how ATF functions.
Sergeants are in charge of their squads; watching and dealing with grievances and possibly weeding out the ones that are ruining the ATF experience. They improve their platoons by way of communication and example. If a Sergeant has a problem with a new recruit or corporal he must convey that through the chain of command. A sergeant is responsible for keeping his unit together, helping them out with questions and game tactics and being present when needed. Sergeants are responsible for helping Lieutenants with practices in tracking who is at events and anything else a lieutenant may need, this varies from division to division.
Lieutenants have stepped into the Officers rank, meaning more responsibility involving the clan, and that they are a potential leader for their division. Their responsibilities are to host or co-host one in game event every three weeks. The Lieutenant will also maintain watch for members who are dropped for forum violation and inform their chain of command so that the offender will be removed from the roster.
Captains have proven they can lead in ATF. They are experienced family members available to handle divisional disputes in the ranks, challenges with members and decisions. They keep an eye on the ranks below them to make sure the ATF name does not get tarnished and that the lower ranks are doing their rank duties. They also keep the upper ranks informed of their platoons progress, and make recommendations to majors about promotions, demotions, and recruitments. Captains are expected to Host or Co-host (with another Captain or a Lieutenant) an ATF event every two weeks.
Majors hold the minimum required rank for creation of a division and as such, if no General or Colonel exist, Majors assume the division leadership regardless if it is new division or not. They are the first link of the unified chain of command whose responsibilities include but are not limited to: strong leadership, recruiting, and promotions. Their duty is also to make sure of good communications within the over all division, dealing with issues in the lower ranks and the recruit handling is correctly done, so bigger issues are avoided in these areas. Majors will cooperate closely with the captains and the colonels, so that the chain of command is retained. Majors also gain access to the Officers forum where respect is not requested, it is given.
Colonels are people who show total dedication to the clan. They work to better the clan and their divisions. They work with officers from other divisions, taking care of any interdivision problems. Colonels are in charge of the divisions and are the JCS representative if there is no General in the division. Colonels also ensure that the chain of command is followed and that everyone is doing their rank jobs. While Colonel is a training position for General, only Hollowpoint can promote someone to General.
Generals are members that founded ATF or that show a total dedication to the clan. Though they are not on line every waking moment, they can always be reached to handle any problems or questions that come up in the division. (Chain of command should be followed.) Their position in the clan is only removable by themselves or Hollowpoint. Their responsibilities include making sure new members get signed up in a reasonable time, maintaining the division’s website, roster administration, and final say on all promotions/demotions/removals. Generals determine the way each division is managed. Generals are the Joint Chief of Staff representative unless their activity level prohibits prompt response to hot topics upon which an appointed Colonel or Major will take the seat.
We have set up a chain of command for each division. Those going above and beyond the call of duty will be promoted. Those neglecting their rank duties will be demoted. Communications, questions, and requests should go through the chain of command, the members directly above you in rank.
