Canon company rules have been amended to reflect recent suggestions. The standardized rules have been updated to reflect this change. It can be seen here.
Changes below are in green.These amendments are effective immediately.
If you are the owner of a canon company currently, you have until January 31st to claim your three canon subsidiaries. (Provided you are at least Tier 3+)
After this date, they will be free to claim by other writers.
Canon Company Information
Due to the timeline, it is assumed most canon companies went south with the declining population of the Galaxy. However, it is the writer's choice in whether or not he wishes to further the future of a Canon Company. In order to properly adopt a canon company, please follow the below rules.
To claim a Canon Company, create your Company submission as per the Company Creation Rules. Ensure you add in the appropriate fields that it is a canon company and link the Wookeepedia page. Please post an announcement in bold at the bottom. "This is a canon company."
Canon Company Guidelines and Rules
1. A writer may only own one canon company. A writer may own up to a maximum of three canon based subsidiaries of that canon company. (Subsidiaries not based on canon are excluded from this limit.)
2. Your canon company may not own other canon companies as subsidiaries unless they are directly referenced in the Wookieepedia as being owned by that canon company
and each canon company subsidiary must have another character not owned by you labeled as it's CEO/Director.
3. Each subsidiary must have their own company submission.
4. If an active owner of a canon company wishes to transfer ownership to another writer who does not currently own a canon company, they must provide evidence of the transfer by the original owner. The new owner must create a new submission of their own for the same company name. A factory judge presiding will alert a role-play judge, who will then attempt to contact the current active owner. If the role-play judge confirms the transfer, the role-play judge will inform the factory judge that judgement may proceed. After which, the role-play judge or administrator will transfer ownership of the canon company and current tier level to the new canon company owner, along with any edits made. The old submission will then be archived.
5. If a canon company owner is absent for more than 30 days, any writer who does not already own a canon company may contest your claim by creating a submission of their own for the same company name. The factory judge presiding will alert a role-play judge, who will then attempt to contact the previous canon company owner. If the role-play judge fails to contact the previous canon company owner within 72 hours and determines the canon company owner inactive, the role-play judge willinform the factory judge that judgement may proceed. After which, the role-play judge or administrator will transfer ownership of the canon company along with one level tier drop (may not fall under Tier 2) to the new canon company owner, along with any edits made. The old submission will then be archived. If a canon company is transferred this way, and its tier drops from 3 to 2, any and all subsidiaries attached are immediately forfeit.
6. If a canon company owner has been contacted previously with a contesting canon company claim, upon the second inquiry the owner must show themselves to be active in order to keep the canon company. Activity can be demonstrated with a substantial RP thread or 3+ Factory submissions which took place within the 60 days prior to the second inquiry. Activity after the second inquiry will not be taken into consideration.
7. If a writer had their canon company taken away due to inactivity, the writer may create a new original company submission requesting the tier level from their previous canon company submission. In the new submission, please link the archived canon company submission showing all your work and the tier level gained. A factory judge presiding will alert a role-play judge, who will then review and confirm the work from the archived canon company submission and the tier level addendum. Once verified by the role-play judge, the new company submission may be approved at the previously worked for canon company tier level along with any edits made.
