The two flow charts attached shows our CoC as it stands currently (with the restructure in place) and a very basic linear breakdown of the new ranking structure within AT - The change was facilitated with a view to help emphasize multi-gaming and separate the game ranks so people can achieve progression individually within the AT core without having to play every game.
The further up the chain people progress the less members of that rank there are. This is to stream-line all decisions and actions carried out for the outfit without having to await activity or vote. This creates more responsibility and accountability on those at the top and allows ease of monitoring to ensure all members of staff high up in the chain continue to do their duty. As such these ranks are subject to change as time goes by. In order to progress up the CoC members must first climb the rung a head of them, while this may appear narrow, members can achieve Game Master by organising and running a game division for AT of their own (provided it contains enough members who join our community and adhere to our tenants, and is both active and growing) - So while it may seem like climbing upwards has become increasingly difficult, expanding outwards has in-fact become a lot easier. - More information on this particular caveat to come.
Tech Support and Public Relations are their own contained unit within the Azure Twilight CoC - While not directly connected to the ladder of command in a vertical fashion, all staff contained within are higher members of the CoC whose job is to make the fluid running of Azure Twilight's community possible. As such achieving these ranks can only be done via application directly to the leaders of both groups (namely Khunei and Kytten respectively)
Azure Patron is a special rank that cannot be achieved, but is given in recognition to people from Azure Twilight's past who have had an influential and considerable role in shaping Azure Twilight as it is today. As such they exist neither inside nor outside of the current CoC and any subsequent rank given to them (in game for example) over-writes their place within AT when concerning structure and permissions. However being that they've played such an influential role in the foundation or development of Azure Twilight they should be treated with the utmost respect and honor.
As always due to the nature of construction and reconstruction all ranks and statuses are subject to change.
