DBO Clan Guidelines (DBO)

With the arrival of Destiny 2 — and the expanded emphasis on Clans in-game — we here at DBO are taking this opportunity to do some spring summer cleaning to better serve those that have been playing with this community over the past several years, as well as for the new Guardians that will be joining us throughout Destiny 2 and beyond. To that end, please see the following guidelines and information on how to join us in these endeavors.

Destiny.Bungie.Org Clan Guidelines:

DBO (or DestinyBungieOrg for short) is committed to providing an enjoyable and engaging Clan experience. The two most important aims of this Clan are that you (a) have a positive experience, and (b) feel like a part of the group. With those aims in mind, we have a few simple guidelines:

Don’t be a really big jerk
The Claudefather (aka the Wu-meister) doesn’t like us to heavily moderate the forums and rush to ban people just because they’re being a little bit of a jerk, and we follow his lead in those regards… but we do reserve the right to suspend or even ban you from the DBO Clan(s) for being a ‘really big jerk.’ We are not going to define what constitutes being a ‘really big jerk’ because it isn’t a black and white matter, and if this rule ever becomes an issue, will use our subjective judgment in enforcing it. Just try to be friendly and respectful of your fellow gamers that have chosen to make this community their home, alright?

Maintain a basic level of participation in the community
In order for you to feel like a part of the group, it is important for you and the other members of the Clan to be actively engaged with the group. We also understand that some Clan members choose to be more active on the forum side of the community, while others choose to be more active in-game. We are proud to have all of you among our ranks and displaying our Clan tags in Destiny! We are not going to establish strict guidelines on how often you have to post on the forums or play with a specified number of other DBOers in a given time period. We do feel, however, that active participation in the community is important for the Clan as a whole, so we reserve the right to remove you from the Clan roster if you do not remain active in the community. Such removal will be considered only after substantial periods of inactivity, and only after you have been given notice by one of the admins that removal is being considered (and we will generally only audit this if we’re close to hitting the 100-member limit and need to make room for new membership).

Frequently Asked Questions:

Wait, I'm already a member of the DBO Clan! Why do I need to sign up again?
Bungie's changing how Clans are configured on Bungie.net, and the current DestinyBungieOrg group (now called "DestinyBungieOrg D1") is just too large and unwieldy to cleanly move to the new system. We're making a fresh start and launching into Destiny 2 with all-new Clans, which will be great once things get rolling, but it unfortunately means that everyone will need to sign up again.


Will my Clan tag change?
Sort of. The Clan name itself now reflects the specific platform for that Clan (which is actually how we've had the PlayStation Clan set up for a while now). The tag (short version) will remain "DBO" for all three platforms.


Can I be in more than one DBO Clan, or even all three?
Yes! Each DBO Clan is tied to a specific platform, so be sure to sign up for the Clan that corresponds with the platform(s) that you play on. For each Clan, you need to first sign up for the Group, and then request access to the Clan for the appropriate platform. Note: There is limited membership space in each Clan, so if you are not going to be active on a particular platform, please leave room for others and don't request membership for platforms you won't be playing on.


Are we abandoning the old Clan?
The D1-era DBO Clans have been mothballed as Bungie.net Groups, and will remain that way. Moving forward, we are using the new Destiny 2 Clan system with the new platform-specific Clans.


I can't sign up for the PC Clan yet, what gives?
Bungie hasn't enabled PC Clan support yet. We'll open it up as soon as they do. For now, though, go ahead and sign up for the DestinyBungieOrg PC group if you'll be joining us on the PC platform.
