The Charter of
Universal Gamers
Federation

On the 21st of May, The council has met and agreed to establish the principles of governance of the Universal Gamers Federation (UGF) with the following Core Values & Rules captured as part of this.

Core Values of UGF

Our core values set the foundation of what we believe is true to the spirit and nature of the gamers community we want to established and how we expect others to be. Respect others, have Fun and be Honest.

Respect

Respect for fellow members and non-members alike. You are representing UGF at all times as a member, so rise above the issues that can manifest in games and remember that at the end of the day we are here to play games.
This applies even if you are part of a specific group within UGF and join a different game to play with friends. Stay classy and mature.

Fun

We strive to have a very relaxed and friendly community with the main objective is to have fun and chill with friends. No pressure if things in game are not going your or our way. It’s a game and part of the challenge is finding opportunities to improve or just enjoy the games for what they are.
We are here to have fun and most gamers play to wind down. Why play games in a stressful environment. We want gamers to feel they can log in whenever they want.

Honesty

We, as an organisation, strive to be as open and honest with regards to the running of UGF and its services. If you have a question about something we are there to answer it to our best capabilities. We have an open approach to questions being raised during meetings or in general. Monthly news updates to keep everyone within the organisation posted of what's new and what's going on.
