Completed applications will be reviewed by ServerCom, and will be submitted for vote upon approval. Falsification of any information will result in the immediate dismissal of the application. After a dismissal, a new application will be reviewed after a 15 day waiting period. 2. New links will have a 30-day probationary period. During the 30-day probation period, no operator can vote or apply to the Eboard. After the 30-day period ServerCom will recommend to Eboard to accept or deny the server as a permanent link, or extend the probationary period of the server to a time recommended by ServerCom. 3. New servers linking are limited to Admin and Co-Admin as global operators. After a server has been approved for a permanent link, the admin may request permission from OperCom to add one or more local opers. 3a. The Admin and Co-Admin must meet with OperCom, prior to linking their server to DynastyNet, for an admin evaluation and a policy briefing so that they may be acquainted with DynastyNet's policies and rules. After this evaluation and briefing OperCom will inform the Admin and Co-admin of any further training required based on past experience and general knowledge shown during the evaluation. The Admin and Co-Admin shall setup a time with OperCom to take the oper test. If the Admin and/or Co-Admin does not pass the test OperCom reserves the right to reduce their oline status to that of local oper until such time as they successfully pass the test. 3b. New opers that OperCom has approved shall be added to the server as local opers until such time as they complete oper training and pass the oper test. OperCom shall furnish the new oper an application, which shall be filled out, and returned to OperCom within 24 hours. OperCom will then set up times for the oper to take the required classes. The new opers shall not be granted a global oline until such time as they have passed the oper test that all opers on DynastyNet are required to pass to obtain global status. 3c. Any current DynastyNet global oper or admin that links a server to DynastyNet will not be subject to the OperCom tests, and as the admin or co-admin of the server, the current oper/admin may be eligible for Eboard application status without the 30 day waiting period. 4. All local opers, on a new server, or added at a later date on an existing server will test after no less than a 30 day waiting period and attend classes required by OperCom. Local opers will have 30 days to schedule their test date after classes are completed. If not done within 30 days, opers will be required to schedule a retake of the classes, in which both the classes and the testing must be completed within 30 days. If this requirement is not completed the oper will remain a permanent local oper, pending Server Admins decision. After the test is passed it will go to vote. If an oper fails the test they will be required to retake the classes and retest within 30 days, providing their admin keeps them on. A third test will be denied. New Admin/Co-Admin will retest in 2 weeks. The Oper Committee will do all testing, and then sent to vote from all global/admin operators, no global/admin operator on a test server will have a vote. 5. All opers, on a new server, or on an existing server, who have been off-line for a period of more than 7 days, without prior notification to OperCom, are subject to immediate removal, pending a full review after returning, subject to the Admins request to reinstate such oper. Non working opers idling 24/7 who are consistently unavailable shall also be subject to immediate removal. The oper may request a review and re-addition subject to the Admins request to reinstate such oper. 6. The server admin will notify OperCom immediately by email of any o:line removal. If the admin wishes to add a new oper they shall contact OperCom and request permission to add a new oper to their server. OperCom approval is required before an admin may add a new oper. Once OperCom has approved the oline addition, OperCom will supply the new oper with an application that the oper must fill out and return to OperCom. 7. If the owner of a server is absent and the need arises for an Admin or Co-admin or both to be replaced/appointed to a server, Eboard reserves the right to interview qualified opers for the position and make a decision on who to appoint. At which time OperCom shall upgrade the opers training to include the admin duties and ServerCom shall provide the new admin with all necessary passwords and information. Upon the return of the owner of the server, he may replace anyone he feels necessary with his own choice and, provided they are eligible, OperCom shall upgrade their training to include the admin duties. It shall be understood by the Admin and/or Co-admin that are appointed by Eboard that this is a temporary term that may be revoked at any time by either Eboard and/or the owner of the server. At such time that it is revoked they shall turn over all passwords and necessary information to Eboard and/or the owner.
