The Core Principles of Veritas Gaming explained:
Equality - we will treat all members equally if they are administration or new members
Everyone's opinion matters. We work on a democratic structure in line with our mission statement. And all staff members are just as accountable for their actions as new members.
Transparency - we will provide all members with all information that has been approved at the senior staff level. If there are issues with staff, this will be displayed named and recognized as a constructive process. All website forums ( that do not contain confidential information ) will be viewable by our member base.
VGHQ Staff forums are visible to all members with the exception of confidential member related information or Department Leader and Administration forums where leaders discuss community services development and structure. We recognize the fact that we're all human and make mistakes but lists, protocols, training, and structure are there to help keep everything in check if a mistake should happen. The other reason is because the community is in a constant state of development and improvement so we want all our members to have a full understanding of our rules, regulations, and protocols and why we use them.
Professionalism - the community's structure and running will be performed to the highest level possible, whilst keeping an enjoyable and recreational environment.
We have no advertisements on our websites nor will we ever. All Veritas Gaming's websites and services are free for all members and are paid for by members of the community. Donations are taken once a year to pay for site services but are not a requirement for membership so you have no fear of being spammed to buy anything or subscribe to any services.
Being flexible with hundreds of members' real lives is difficult but is something we strive towards by having structured or scheduled Game lobbys and respecting that every staff member though they may have community responsibilities, they are all volunteers and real life sometimes must take priority. We all have much to do in life besides play video games, but it's the community spirit that keeps us going and dedicated to this fine group of people. We do our best to strike a balance between real life and community involvement.
Communication - this is one of the key elements to a successful network, communicating with each other is central to any smooth running organization, at member and staff level.
This is super important for all members to understand and agree to. This isn't only a reminder to staff members to stay in communication. The Veritas Gaming website and forum is the lifeblood of the social community of VGHQ. If you're not interacting with other members via our website, than you're completely missing out on what is special about VGHQ. And that is the members themselves and the experiences that they share. We use activity requirements to insure that members who have active accounts are active within the community. Members who volunteer to become staff members are encouraged and supported in various forms of training and communication so you never have to feel like you're doing it alone.
Something for all - we aim to provide an environment for everyone, if you are a casual player and can only commit to a few games a week that’s fine, if you want to play all day everyday, and be part of a highly focused competitive squad, that’s what we want too.
Some of us take our gaming seriously, but we'll still respect and play with those who play less. Some members live and breath gaming and VGHQ while others only have the time to stop by now and again. At Veritas Gaming, you can be an active member of the community no matter what your lifestyle is. Our goal isn't to make the biggest gaming community, but to create a place where growth is organic because members feel comfortable inviting their friends to join in. We're by no means an exclusive gaming community, instead we make every effort to insure all members are welcomed and safe no matter who they are.
Non discriminating - no-one with the community will be subjected to discrimination. Anyone found to be treating other members in this way will be assessed and will be removed should the situation warrant this.
Respect for others on the internet does exist, and here at Veritas Gaming HQ, we encourage and require it of all our members. If you would like to learn more about our Rules and Regulations please see the link below:
Staff service - the staff are here to provide the best community and site that we can for our members, if you are not happy or you feel there is something we are missing then tell us. We will always discuss your ideas, and evaluate them. And it will not reflect negatively on you to speak your mind.
This was included in our Mission Statement because we wanted it to be clear that nobody is above reproach. In other words, we're all human and make mistakes. The staff of Veritas Gaming HQ are not hired or elected. They are regular members who have volunteered their time to the community structure and operations. Over time with dedication they become leaders and play a direct role in the development and operations of the community. The growth, development and success of Veritas Gaming HQ relies on every member. A community of this size cannot be run by a handful of people. So the success of it's function requires members to maintain it by volunteering. VG is only as good as every member. You will never reap what you don't sow. The community will never be what you want it to be unless you do your part in making it so.
Thank you for your continued support of Veritas Gaming HQ!
