Apr 2016 Monday, April 11th, at 6:59pm ET Announcement Orphans and You. As you may be aware, there has been an incident involving the children at the Wellington Home. Several have been abducted by specific parties unknown, and apparently transported to another dimension. One can only presume this attack to come from Grishom Stone, in some capacity, given his over-zealous need to inflict harm upon the citizens of Wehnimer's Landing, and his own personal vendetta for many among our membership. It should also be noted that the Hendoran Outpost has also been teleported to what we presume to be the same planar destination. There is in the works a rescue mission of sorts being developed to retrieve any and all survivors of this abduction from this yet unknown plane. I will state that personally, I have no qualms about deserting any Hendoran survivors in favor of the rescue of any children from The Wellington Home. These innocents were taken on our watch, and as the primary protectors and majority benefactors to the Home, it lies on our shoulders, and reputations, to see that they are returned safely. I urge any of you that are available to find a spot to become involved in this endeavor.

The results of the ballot are considered confidential and will not be discussed (i.e., there will be no commentary on whether the vote was by majority, whether the Marshall's vote was needed, or how many votes went in either direction).

Should either party decline the opportunity to choose their vote collector, the Marshall will appoint one in their stead.

All members are reminded that in serving the position as collector, the individual vote cast by any member present is done in secrecy and is considered confidential information (refer to rules regarding dissemination of confidential information).

Determination and Sentencing

Actions which make it necessary to call for a hearing warrant an equally demonstrative sentencing.

Most offenses, if found to be in violation of the charter, goals, and overall common-good ideology of the LDI will result in either the expulsion or suspension of the member from the LDI, along with the removal of any and all imagery or distinctions of rank or position within the organization, such as epaulettes, medals, etc.

The length and conditions for this expulsion may be dictated by the Marshall and may include, but are not limited to; Lifetime expulsion, conditional expulsion, suspension, or probation. The severity of the offense and the demeanor and intent will be considered by the Marshall before the sentence is announced.

Appeals

The member who is determined to be guilty of the accusation by the membership may request for an appeal to be heard. The member in question will remain expelled or suspended with no rights within the organization until a determination may be made by the officers regarding their appeal. If it is determined that a new hearing should be held on new evidence to reverse the decision of the majority of membership during the regular hearing, then a new hearing will be scheduled as soon as possible.
