Article 4 - Distribution & Responsibilities - Charter & Morality -

A Member may never become an official correspondent of the League without the authorization of the Board.

The electronic forum hosted by the League is based on common principles: respect for certain values and morals. Without falling into a crude and uncompromising puritanical stance, the content of any message can in no way contain any views or matter that are pornographic or pedophilic, defamatory or offensive, intentionally extremist, religious or political, contrary to current laws or rights.

This also applies to written documents and lists available to League subscribers. Violation of these simple rules will lead to immediate cancellation of services, which is final and not subject to appeal by the Member or User.

The Federation, through its technical support team commissioned by the Board, reserves the right to:

  • Suspend any messages that could endanger the communication network, without notifying the user or the sender.
  • Delete a public contribution that would jeopardize the functions of the League, which is not ethically proper as governed by the law of associations approved in 1901, or that would contravene the law governing them.
  • Suspend the account of a member that may jeopardize the functioning of the association.

In addition, the Charter defines these rules to follow in order to post on the forums.

You can see the website of the association at the following location: http://www.dungeontwister.org. Repeatedly or seriously infringing upon correct Netiquette (and especially, no writing in correct language) despite numerous courteous reminders and helpful moderators may lead to removal of the User, for the sole purpose of protecting other Users. The User is solely responsible for his writings and his actions.

The League is not responsible for the dissemination of data and information, and will declare as such at all times.

 

Article 5 - Technical Decisions

The League, by nature and by choice, chooses to work and communicate through available electronic networks, and principally through the Internet.

The email address must be maintained and updated correctly. A notice convening a general meeting which has not been received due to a technical problem on the side of the member may call into question the holding of this meeting or its compliance with the statutes.

Any change of address must be sent via email or postal mail to the Board.

Each operational message (membership confirmation, call to a meeting ..) will be sent 3 times if technical problems are evident, before abandoning that address

Article 7 - Safety and security

The League is committed to ensuring optimal functioning of its services, but according to common practices on the Internet, it can not be held responsible for any malfunction of the technical system it offers.

Article 10 - Administration of INTERNATIONAL DUNGEON TWISTER LEAGUE

As provided in the Constitution, three elements contribute to the administration of the League:

  • The Board of Directiors (CA), composed of elected Members of the Bureau, is the legislative body of the Federation. Its members are elected in the manner defined in the Constitution in Articles 11, 13 and 14.
    They are elected officers chosen at the Annual General Meeting and have an advisory role on all problems regarding the administration of the League. Their vote is required for any change to the Constitution and on any issue requested by the President's Office. Decisions are taken by simple majority.
    In case of a tie vote, the President casts the deciding vote. Postal votes are allowed, either by mail or electronically. If voting is by secret ballot, voting by mail are considered best in order to maintain anonymity. A Board member present who voted by mail may cancel his postal vote at the general meeting.
  • The Board supports the daily work of the directors of the League. This includes the establishment and coordination of services provided in Article 3.
  • The Staff, whose members are appointed by the Board, helps the League to achieve its mission. Anyone given a task by the Board (and accepting it) needs to communicate as soon as possible if there is a delay or inability to perform the task. In the same vein, any request for assistance is necessary if a problem occurs. Any transgression of these two rules may result in sanctions from the Board.

 

Article 11 - Regional Managers

Regional managers are the representatives to the League of their geographical area (see Article 12 of these Bylaws for details on the different geographical areas).

Regional managers are elected by the Board by simple majority after consulting with members of their zone.

Where no Member is present in an area, the Board of Directors will decide whether to include that zone with other area, or to appoint a member who may already be Regional Manager to work in that zone.

The roles of a Regional Manager are:

  • Represent the League in his geographical area. As such, he will help organize local events (demonstrations, tournaments, ...) and communicate with key stakeholders of the district (such as partner stores of the League).
  • Go to tournaments reported on the League website when there is not appointed Referee.
  • Name the official Referee of the League for his defined geographical area.

To help them in their task, regional leaders can appoint members who will become alternates. These should be reported to the Board and the Office. Alternates will have the task to assist the Regional Manager in their geographical area.

If a Regional Manager is absent or does not fulfill his duties (by choice or negligence), one of his Deputies may be appointed by the Board of Directors to replace him. If the Regional Manager did not designate a Substitute, the CA is responsible for appointing a substitute.

  • Referee DTL, tournaments, Opens, and Championships organized by the League.
