  • PMS|H2O Fortnite Mini-Handbook!

    Welcome to the
    PMS|H2O Fortnite Division!

    Mission Statement
    The mission of PMS & H2O Clan is to provide a competitive, fun, and positive environment to female gamers.

    Outside Clan Involvement

    No PMS|H2O Clan Member may participate in any Clan while preparing to Recruit, Actively Recruiting or while a Member of PMS|H2O Clan. PMS|H2O Clan expects its members to be fully committed to PMS|H2O Clan and fully participate in all Clan functions. Participation in other clans is a conflict of interest both professional and personally.*
    * Exception: In the case of pre-approved groups, such as relating to a contracted job, (I.E. FragDolls, CGS) or with a social network, (I.E. Gamerchix, PopChix).

    *This includes if you are a casual member of the clan!

    Important Announcement
    • Since we are Cross-Platform Division, our lobby hosts are on multiple platforms, we require that all recruits/members have their accounts linked to Epic and add each other via the Epic Games Launcher

    What does it mean to be a PMS Member?

    Being PMS cannot be defined by one single idea. You are a gamer, whether in first person shooters or in recreational games. You are a friend and sister to all gamers, regardless of gender, location, even clan affiliation. Through PMS Clan, your family is extended by hundreds of Sisters, Mothers, Daughters, Aunts, etc. There is a ready ear for listening. A shoulder for crying. And open arms ready to send hugs of comfort and support.

    You may be a new recruit or a long standing Member, with years of experience behind you, but you are both here for the same reason - you believe in breaking down the long-standing stereotypes of gamers, specifically in regards to female gamers. You believe in creating and supporting a safe-haven for all gamers to play and discuss video games and video game culture. By joining PMS, you agree to uphold the ideas upon which the clan was founded: "To provide a fun and positive environment, and to encourage competition to female gamers."

    More and more women are becoming interested in gaming, and it is reported that over 47% of today's gamers are female. This number however makes no distinction regarding level of dedication to play. So while PMS Clan is open to Members at different levels of dedication, PMS Clan remains focused on supporting female gamers in playing games considered hardcore and that are traditionally male-dominated.

    What does it mean to be an H2O Member?

    As an H2O, Welcome to one of the most supportive groups in the gaming community. Members will find hundreds of gentlemen all brought together for one cause; to support our brothers in H2O and sisters in PMS.

    We are here for the community as a whole and not just a single part; we are a brotherhood as opposed to just a normal clan where interactions only take place in the online environment. Bonds built go beyond the console or PC platforms, these are bonds of friendship that can be taken wherever you go and know that someone will always be there for you. We are about the brotherhood, and being there for each other. This is your family; you guys make it what it is. During your recruitment process or during your membership you may at times feel overcome with adversities and overwhelmed with things that are going on in the division , the clan and in your daily lives. But as brothers, we're here to help each other out in terrible situations and under dire circumstances. What we will face is temptation, hardships, abuse, drama, but we will do so together as brothers, friends, gamers, and as H2Os.

    One of the most important things in being a true H2O is being a respectful gamer. What we can do in random rooms is ask people to treat those that are in there with respect. This is paramount to our success as a clan. What we can do together is help create a better gaming environment for us all, not just women gamers, but ourselves and children. This is part of what being a H2O is all about. H2O’s are bound by their code to be respectful, loyal, honest, dedicated and reliable. They are able to do what is right no matter the pressures placed on them in any environment.

    We’re all here to play video games, and play the games as H2Os. It encompasses all the above, but it’s also something more. We support PMS as gamers and friends, play with our clan mates, and actively create a positive friendly environment for every gamer out there. And as gamers we’re competitive, we encourage those who wish to take their gaming to the next level, just as we encourage those who support the community and choose to play on a recreational level.

    It requires a unique attitude to be a true H2O, an attitude that is rarely found online these days. It means universal support, regardless of age, gender, race, looks, skill, and dedication; to encourage, console, and direct all to provide a better gaming experience for everyone. We are all judged on how we act. H2Os have focus and dedication, drive and perseverance, passion and ferocity. What we can accomplish is amazing, but only possible through those who harbor the focus, drive and dedication to uphold the beliefs of the PMS and H2O Clan.

    Much love to H2O Camper & my clan sisters Jenga PMS, Ardroxian Rayne PMS & PMS Morgana!

        Recruitment Policies

        Recruitment Period
        • PMS Clan monitors and evaluates every new recruit performance for a predetermined recruitment period to determine whether further membership with PMS|H2O Clan is appropriate. You are not considered a member of PMS|H2O Clan until this probationary period, attending 4 hours of practice per week for 4 weeks, is over and you are adopted into a regular division of PMS Clan Inc. Acceptance into PMS Clan Inc. is based on the following criteria:
        • Completion of recruitment period. (See the Handbook for guidelines)
        • Attitude and behavior while in recruitment, on the forums, personal blogs, sites, in game, and at events.
        • Active participation in Division practices. Mandatory: Attending 4 hours of practice per week for 4 weeks.
        • Active participation in forum discussions and events.
        • Attendance at Orientation.
        Any issues please keep the Recruit Managers informed!We can't help you if we are not kept informed!

        Transitioning from Recruit to Member

        At the end of a successful recruitment period, the following actions will be taken by your leader:
        • Your Recruitment Managers|Division Leaders will send you a message, requesting the PMS|H2O Halo tag you are interested in taking. They will research the requested tag for appropriateness and to confirm the tag is not in use. (See: Clan Tag Usage)
        • Your Recruitment Managers|Division Leaders will confirm your approved tag/handle
        • If you need help picking out a gamertag name, please refer to this thread to see what names are NOT available:
          "Choosing a PMS tag: Read Here First"
          "Choosing a H2O tag: Read Here First"
        • Your Recruitment Managers|Division Leaders will confirm your attendance at the PMS|H2O Member Orientation.
        • Your Division Leader will make a Membership Request on the internal Member Request, and an Administrator will grant your Membership Rights, Clan Tag if so chosen, and will add you to the PMS|H2O Clan Rosters, as appropriate!
        Small Team Rules for Recruits
        A Recruit is not an official member of PMS|H2O until completion of recruitment. Once a Recruit becomes an official Member of the clan, they may chose to join a small team or start up a small team of her own. A PMS/H2O Recruit can not be added to a PMS/H2O Small Team's roster or be included in a small team competition. However, Recruits are allowed to join competitive practices that are on the schedule.

        Recruits/Casual~ Rules PMS/H2O Mixers & Guest Night
        PMS/H2O Mixer's & Guest night are a gift and a privilege given only to active PMS/H2O Member's.
        Please do not go to a guest night and ask a PMS/H2O Member to take on one of your friends as her/his guest. It is rude and puts a PMS/H2O Member in an awkward position. Not only that, it forces a PMS/H2O Member to be responsible for your guest and their possible infractions can and may result in them loosing their guest night privileges. A Recruit who is caught acting in this manor will result in disciplinary actions.

          Clan Tag Usage Restriction

          Once a Recruit becomes an official Member of the clan, they may request that their forum name be changed to reflect their new PMS|H2O Clan name, if so chosen. All PC handles, PSN IDs and Xbox Gamertags may also be changed at this time. However, all forum names must be the same as gamer tags/handles. A recruit may request a PMS/H2O name at any time, but

          • It is not mandatory to change to include the PMS|H2O suffix, but it is highly supported to do so if possible.
          • All names be changed AFTER a successful recruitment period.
          • All members must place the PMS/H2O tag in front of their name.
          • Only PMS/H2O Leaders may place the PMS/H2O tag behind their name, as a sign of respect and dedication to the PMS|H2O Clan.
          • A Recruit may not take a tag currently in use by (or very similar to) existing Division Leaders, Platform Generals, Clan Administrations & Operations or PMS|H2O Inc. Executive Team members.
          • If a PMS/H2O Recruit is interested in taking a tag currently used by an H2O Recruit (or vice versa), a message must be sent to the established member asking permission to use their tag.
            Example: A PMS/H2O recruit is interested in taking the name PMS/H2O Penguin. Her/His Division Leader must contact PMS/H2O Penguin, asking his/her permission for the recruit to create a tag mirroring his existing tag.

            How to post an Application

            Recruitment Applications Thread- Click the link and fill out your personal information. You DO NOT have to be specific.

            Remember to check your Private Messages often for a reply from Staff Members. Why? Because if you don't and you miss the reply and never play with us, you won't become a member.

            Gamertag/Epic ID/PSN Information:
            • You MUST have your own account to be recruited.
              Make sure you have your own Gamertag/Epic ID/PSN AND a headset. You cannot use one of your relative, best friend, etc. You must have your OWN personal tag and a headset for your entrance interview on your specific platform.
            • Do not make or change your Gamertag/Epic ID/PSN to include "PMS" or "H2O" until you have gone through recruitment and have become a full member. Your leaders will let you know when this happens.
              • No guys on PMS tags and no girls on H2O tags! There has been a rash of complaints about boyfriends/girlfriends, brothers/sisters etc. coming into our lobbies on a PMS/H2O members tag. This is NOT allowed and the practice captain of the room is obligated to report the gamer tag.
                • First offense of someone else on your tag is a verbal warning.
                • Second offense is a written warning,
                • Third offense is grounds for dismissal from the clan.
                  *Please keep your PMS or H2O Tag to yourselves ladies and gentlemen!
            • Since we are Cross-Platform Division, our lobby hosts are on multiple platforms, we require that all recruits/members have their accounts linked to Epic, and add each other via the Epic Games Launcher
            Looking down below your post, you will see "Recruit Category", "Application Status" and "Approved/Updated By: (A staff member)"
            • New Recruit: For those who are a new recruit just joining the clan.
            • Dual Division: For those who are a member wanting to join this division as a second.
            • Casual: For those who are a clan member wanting to join back into a division.
            • Transfer: For those who are currently in a division and switch into this division.
            Recruit Category: Leave this alone!
            Application Status: Leave this alone!
            Approved/Updated by: Leave this alone!

              General Guidelines

              All Clan Members are urged to become familiar with PMS|H2O Clan rules and Standards of Conduct as set down in this Handbook, and are expected to follow these rules and standards faithfully as a Member of PMS|H2O Clan.

              Respect for Others

              PMS|H2O Clan has adopted a policy prohibiting violence against Members of any kind, be it physical, verbal, or written.

              Consistent with this policy, acts or threats of physical violence, including intimidation, harassment, and/or coercion, which involve or affect PMS Clan Inc., will be grounds for immediate termination from PMS|H2O Clan.
              Belittling or attacking others in any way, even in retaliation, will also not be tolerated and may result in Disciplinary Actions.
              Always remember you represent every one of your fellow Clan Members in every game you play and every comment you post or make. Show respect to others, even if they do not do the to you. Remember, you will be held responsible for any negative action you take no matter what the situation is.
              Saying “Good Game” after every match is a non-negotiable, even if the opposing team was offensive. Members are encouraged to mute any opposing players that are being offensive, and the Captain can say “Good Game” for the team. Members are also encouraged to use any platform specific reporting system when appropriate.

              General Harassment Policy

              PMS|H2O Clan does not tolerate any form of harassment, included in this definition (but not limited to), is:
              • Offensive signatures/avatars directed at Members
              • Words/signs
              • Offensive jokes/cartoons
              • Pictures
              • Forum threads/posts/blogs
              • E-mails, visitor messages, PM's or in-game statements,
              • Pranks
              • Intimidation or physical contact/violence/assaults
              Any Member that is found to be acting in a harassing any way toward any player period, Clan Member or not, is grounds for Disciplinary Action and|or termination from the Clan with no prior Disciplinary Action.

              Always respect fellow PMS|H2O Clan Members.
              At no time is it okay to bad-mouth, disrespect or talk down to any fellow Clan Members, even if it is intended in a joking manner. PMS|H2O Clan Members are expected to be respectful of not only fellow Clan Members and other members of the gaming community, but also to respect themselves.

              While representing PMS|H2O in-game, on forums, at events, and in pre-game or post-game lobbies, PMS|H2O Clan Members are expected to act with cooler heads, and rise above the situation.

              Etiquette with Language

              Directly from our founders Amy & Amber...


              "Yes, cursing is allowed in practices but in moderation. If there are minors/recruits in the room, then cursing should be kept to a minimum except for the occasional here and there. It's about common sense and respect for one another. If cursing bothers someone in the room, please don't do it."
              PMS|H2O Clan does not expect every single Member to get along with each other. Just like in a traditional family, there are personality clashes, etc. If Members find themselves in this situation, PMS|H2O Clan expects the Members to behave as adults, and seek alternative solutions to remedy the situation. If conflict continues to cause disruption, it may result in Disciplinary Actions.

              If a situation does arise, promptly direct any issues to person who is being offensive. If the behavior continues, please direct issue to the appropriate immediate Leader (Division Leader or Platform General).

              Do not discuss issues with the community or in open public forums sections. Instead, handle the situation among only the individuals involved and any appropriate leaders, the situation can be reviewed fairly, and proper action taken.

              There is always going to be “slang” for things both in-game and outside of it. As a gaming community that focuses on supporting females in gaming, we should respect the usage of certain words while in game play. Because we are all from different backgrounds, and we do all not know the events that may have occurred, we should be careful in the "slang" words that sometimes get tossed around.

              Remember: Using the word ‘Rape’ in any form or fashion to describe "getting owned" will not be condoned, and is subject to immediate Suspension from all Clan related activities.
              If you have a problem with any words or phrases you hear other members saying, please let them know it offends you and let a leader know. Members will be warned if their behavior continues to be inappropriate or disrespectful and additional action may be taken.
