Welcome to UMEC (United Mining and
As UMEC is a peaceful squad there are a
few things all members should be aware of:
1. UMEC Beacon Policy: UMEC pilots are Not
forbiden to flip beacons, However please refrain from flipping Faction
beacons to a non-faction color (ie: don't flip an Oct beacon Green) Also
beware when retuning mis-colored beacons in home faction space, or
colored beacons in neutral, Hyp, or Aman space as you will need to set
Honor Guard to do so.
2. UMEC Combat Policy: No UMEC pilot
should ever initiate combat. If you are shot at, you are free to return
fire. Try to get the name of the pilot shooting at you as well as squad
affiliation. Never hesitate to call for back-up if you don't like the
UMEC Honor Guard Policy: UMEC pilots are permitted
to use HG Tags, However: when flying with HG
tags you may be fired upon and killed for any number
of reasons. Pilots who choose to fly HG do so at their
own risk, as they may not recive squad support if
they get into trouble. If an UMEC pilot is attacked
while flying HG it is considered a personal matter,
not a squad matter.
Honor Guard Duels: While Dueling is generally frowned
uppon by UMEC there are times when it becomes neccisary.
A Duel should be an honorable affair, with both pilots
agreeing to fight. No squad interfearance should be
expected nor asked for. Once the duel is complete
honor has been satisfied and the matter is closed.
Bounty Collection: UMEC pilots are not bounty hunters
and will not attack to collect bounties unless said
bounty was incurred via an attack on an UMEC pilot.
These Policies are subject to change. I
will try to announce changes on the forums as they
