Baskerville Cabinet Handbook Thank you for reading the Baskerville Cabinet Handbook. This handbook will be your

guide to operating successfully within the Baskerville Cabinet on the Villoux Server System. As it

will become obvious to you, the Assistants and Advisors are a very important part of Villoux and

play an integral role in daily activities. The Cabinet serves as an instrumental lifeline through which

nearly all of Villoux’s administrative workflows. On behalf of the Baskerville Cabinet and the

Villoux Chief of Staff Dr. Baskerville, thank you for serving in your position.

Assistants and Advisors are recognized as members of senior system staff and are therefore

expected to uphold the values outlined in this handbook as they serve as examples of

professionalism to all others Villoux. Serving as an Assistant presents a wonderful opportunity for

you to grow and become successful within Villoux after developing knowledge about the system’s

governance. Many Grand Council Members started their careers in Villoux as Assistants, testifying

to the benefits of serving in the role.

Whereas it is rare, Advisors may sometimes be requested to serve Assistants in the absence

of an Assistant. The handbook is the sole resource any Advisor would need to perform the

responsibilities expected of the Assistants. Advisors should bear in mind that when they are acting

as an Assistant, they must uphold the same protocol expected of an Assistant rather than the

protocol which is expected from an Advisor.

The Baskerville Cabinet Handbook is divided into five chapters. Each chapter discusses a

different role that members of the Cabinet play in the system. Please ensure that you read this

Page 2: Baskerville Cabinet Handbook - Villoux Server System · Baskerville Assistant Manager and Advisors report to the Baskerville Advisor Manager. The Manager of your position is your

handbook in full and keep it bookmark it so that you may assist Dr. Baskerville properly. The

Executive Baskerville Assistant, Advisor Manager, and Assistant Manager will distribute any

updated versions of this Handbook.

Chapter 1 – Introduction

When to Accompany Dr. Baskerville:

An Assistant should always accompany Dr. Baskerville during his weekly meetings with

Grand Council Members, system staff, and other Villouxians. The Assistant Manager will send

each Assistant a copy of Dr. Baskerville’s schedule each week and Assistants should register to

assist Dr. Baskerville whenever they are available to do so, though it is all right if you are

unavailable during any of the meeting times during a given week. Please simply inform the

Assistant Manager of your availability or lack thereof. Furthermore, please prioritize taking

meetings which compliment your time zone, e.g. a European Assistant should aim to register for

afternoon meetings given evening meetings occur too late for it to be reasonable for them to serve

as an Assistant.

If you join Dr. Baskerville while he is already in a meeting, please do not verbally speak

upon joining his channel as you may disrupt the meeting. This includes making a greeting.

Assistants’ role is similar to that of an intern – they are there to silently observe and learn from the

meetings rather than to participate in them, therefore it is inappropriate to verbally speak during

any meetings. You should instead send a direct message to Dr. Baskerville if you have something

to say during a meeting and wait for him to acknowledge you before interjecting on your own.

Furthermore, you are not to respond to anything anyone says during a meeting unless Dr.

Baskerville explicitly requests your response. This includes greetings and others posing questions

to you.

How to Address Dr. Baskerville:

Formality is important within the Cabinet; therefore, it is inappropriate to refer to Dr.

Baskerville with any nicknames such as “Basker” or “dude”. You should only refer to him as “Sir”

or “Doctor Baskerville”. When speaking to the Baskerville Assistant Manager, Gearbloody, you

should refer to him as “Mr. Gearbloody”; when speaking to the Baskerville Advisor Manager

Qmen, you should refer to him as “Mr. Qmen”; when speaking to the Executive Baskerville

Assistant Peekatchu, you should refer to her as “Ms. Peekatchu”. All other members of the

Page 4: Baskerville Cabinet Handbook - Villoux Server System · Baskerville Assistant Manager and Advisors report to the Baskerville Advisor Manager. The Manager of your position is your

Cabinet, and anyone you interact with while in office will be referred to as “Mr.” or “Ms.”,

respectively.

Learning Information:

Serving in the Cabinet provides you a unique opportunity to learn about how the system

functions, and whereas you should certainly retain that useful information, you should not discuss

it. As an Assistant or Advisor, you will be exposed to numerous private conversations amongst

system officials. You are not, at any time, allowed to repeat any information that you gain as a

result of assisting Dr. Baskerville during his meetings. If you fail to follow this rule, you will not

only be demoted from your position as an Assistant or Advisor, but you also risk being prosecuted

with a ban depending on the severity of the information revealed.

Dr. Baskerville Joining Public Channels:

If you notice that Dr. Baskerville is in a public channel, always join the channel with him,

even if there are already other Assistants with him. This helps the Cabinet make a good showing.

Always try to protect Dr. Baskerville from unwanted conversations and unwarranted questions

while he is in public channels. Be polite, but let users know not to bombard Dr. Baskerville with

“questions, comments, or concerns”. If any user directly insults Dr. Baskerville, immediately

remove the user from the channel.

From Whom to Get Help:

Whereas you are a “Baskerville” Assistant, Dr. Baskerville is not your direct superior and

will therefore not be overly involved in affairs regarding your positions. Assistants report to the

Baskerville Assistant Manager and Advisors report to the Baskerville Advisor Manager. The

Manager of your position is your direct superior and the Executive Baskerville Assistant is the

Manager’s direct superior. If you have any issues with your position, need to take a hiatus, wish to

resign, or have any other concerns, you should contact your respective Manager or the Executive

Assistant.

Page 5: Baskerville Cabinet Handbook - Villoux Server System · Baskerville Assistant Manager and Advisors report to the Baskerville Advisor Manager. The Manager of your position is your

From Whom to Take Orders:

Whereas you are a “Baskerville” Assistant, there may be times at which you will be

requested to assist other system officials. There may be times where members of the Baskerville

Cabinet will be required to attend various meetings to represent Dr. Baskerville, give opinions,

take notes, or participate in aiding the purpose of the meeting. In those meetings, you are to

answer to whomever is hosting and running the meeting. Additionally, some Assistants and

Advisors will be assigned a secondary rank in the system. Should you be one of those members,

you are additionally expected to answer to Grand Council Member to which you have been

assigned.

Reassignments:

Dr. Baskerville maintains the right to request the Executive Baskerville Assistant to transfer

you to another department. In fact, this is the ultimate goal of all Assistants. Should Dr.

Baskerville notice a skill, talent, or ability that you possess and feel that your ability is not being

properly utilized as an Assistant, he may reassign you to another department. If you are an

Advisor, Dr. Baskerville will often reassign you the serve as an acting Manager, Server Head, or

Grand Council Member.

Chapter 3 – Honorifics

The Villoux Server System is a diverse and complex system, as is the social structure within

the system. The following chapter is a list of honorifics that are commonplace in the vocabulary of

Bill of Ordinances.

Villoux uses “honorable” to refer to members whom have been granted honor by the Villoux

Grand Council.

Chapter 4 – Baskerville Advisor Designations

Whereas all Baskerville Advisors are referred to as such in any capacity outside of the

Cabinet, each Advisor has a specialized field in which they provide advice. When traveling on

Villoux business, the Chief of Staff may request one of the Advisor’s company as a travel

companion. In order for a user to be appointed as an Advisor, said user must have the consent of

the Villoux Chief of Staff and the Baskerville Advisor Manager or the Villoux Chief of Staff and

the Executive Baskerville Assistant. The following chapter is a list of the various types of Advisors

and their respective responsibilities. Within the Cabinet, Advisors may be referred to as the

Baskerville Advisor, <Username>, the Advisor of <Specialty>; however, outside of the Cabinet,

Advisors are not referred to by their specialty.

Advisor Manager:

The Baskerville Advisor Manager is the chief Advisor within the Baskerville Cabinet and is

responsible for the oversight of the other Advisors. The Advisor Manager is purview to

information most other Advisors and sometimes even Villoux Grand Council Members are

unaware of, including information about nearly ever component of Villoux and the Chief of Staff’s

personal life. The Advisor Manager is also responsible for serving as an Advisor for at least one of

the specified advising fields. In the absence of an Advisor for one of the specified fields, the

Advisor Manager is expected to present advice on that field. The Advisor Manager must

demonstrate unwavering loyalty and commitment to the Villoux Chief of Staff above all else as the

Advisor Manager’s primary goal is the success of the Chief of Staff, both within Villoux and in the

Chief of Staff’s personal life.

Advisor of Academia:

In order to ensure that Dr. Baskerville continues to have the time to serve as Villoux’s Chief of

Staff, he may need assistance in studying for certain university classes. It is the duty of the

Baskerville Advisor of Academia to assist the Chief of Staff in studying or learning any material

related to his schooling. In addition to assisting the Chief of Staff in studying, the Advisor of

Academia may be requested to aid the Chief of Staff in non-educational related school activities,

for example student organizations.

Page 12: Baskerville Cabinet Handbook - Villoux Server System · Baskerville Assistant Manager and Advisors report to the Baskerville Advisor Manager. The Manager of your position is your

Advisor of Coding:

In the absence of proper Coding staff, it is expected that the Chief of Staff preform the role of

Executive System Coder. Should the Chief of Staff not be extraordinarily well versed on the

execution of the role of Executive System Coder, an Advisor of Coding may be hired. It is the

duty of the Baskerville Advisor of Coding to advise the Chief of Staff on how to preform necessary

tasks in server files, fix errors, and maintain order throughout the Coding Department in the

absence of an Executive System Coder. Additionally, the Advisor of Coding may be requested to

assist the Executive System Coder or other members of the Coding Department on behalf of the

Baskerville Cabinet. The Advisor of Coding must be well-versed on HTML, JavaScript, and other

necessary basic file knowledge.

Advisor of Entertainment:

In the Chief of Staff’s position, they can often be overwhelmed with work. It is crucial that the

Chief of Staff take breaks from work, else the system risks having paperwork being done

lackadaisically. It is the duty of the Baskerville Advisor of Entertainment to remind the Chief of

Staff to take a break from work, and then proceed to amuse the Chief of Staff. The Advisor over

Entertainment may also play music while the Chief of Staff is working or tell off-color jokes via

private messages during boring meetings. The Advisor of Entertainment must be humorous and

farcical, yet still maintain qualities of being appropriate and respectful.

Advisor of Finances:

On a monthly basis, the Villoux Server System has a tremendous amount of bills to pay and

money to allot. Whereas the Villoux Grand Council is generally the only body within the system

that is allowed to have any knowledge of Villoux’s financial situations, special exemption to that

rule is granted to the Advisor of Finances. It is the duty of the Baskerville Advisor of Finances to

aid the Chief of Staff in balancing Villoux’s budget, deciding where to spend the system’s money,

and to ensure that the system is not spending any money in a frivolous or wasteful manner. The

Advisor of Finances must excel in mathematics and accounting.

Page 13: Baskerville Cabinet Handbook - Villoux Server System · Baskerville Assistant Manager and Advisors report to the Baskerville Advisor Manager. The Manager of your position is your

Advisor of Health and Fitness:

The health of the Chief of Staff is crucial to his general wellbeing. It is the duty of the Baskerville

Advisor of Health and Fitness to ensure that the Chief of Staff is in a good physical state by helping

train the Chief of Staff to achieve weight loss/gain goals, encouraging the Chief of Staff to exercise

and eat healthfully, and creating work out regimens, when needed. The Advisor of Health and

Fitness should also have a basic knowledge of pharmaceuticals, anatomy, and physiology.

Advisor of International Affairs:

The Villoux Server System is an international organization that harbors users from six of the

seven continents in the world, therefore it is critical for the system to understand how these

cultures will interact and mix with another. It is the duty of the Baskerville Advisor of

International Affairs to advise the Chief of Staff on how to keep the peace between these different

cultures and nationalities by keeping well-informed on international cultures and differences. The

Advisor of International Affairs must be an expert on current events, world history, geography, and

world cultures.

Advisor of League of Legends:

It is pivotal for the Chief of Staff to be engaged in Villoux society, and, seeing as League of

Legends is one of Villoux’s largest department, this goal can be achieved by the Chief of Staff

engaging in matches of League of Legends, and by participating in the monthly League of Legends

tournaments. It is the duty of the Baskerville Advisor of League of Legends to aid the Chief of

Staff in League of Legends gameplay by updating the Chief of Staff’s masteries and by playing

matches with the Chief of Staff to provide useful tips as to how to better improve the Chief of

Staff’s gameplay. The Advisor of League of Legends also assists the Chief of Staff and League of

Legends Department Chairman make decisions concerning the League of Legends Department

when necessary. The Advisor of League of Legends must be in a higher division than the Chief of

Staff in League of Legends rank; possess knowledge of nearly all champions, items, and roles in

League of Legends; and be a patient instructor.

Page 14: Baskerville Cabinet Handbook - Villoux Server System · Baskerville Assistant Manager and Advisors report to the Baskerville Advisor Manager. The Manager of your position is your

Advisor of Personal Affairs:

The responsibilities of the Chief of Staff mixed with the Chief of Staff’s personal life can often

result in the Chief of Staff becoming stressed and bothered. Similar to a therapist, it is the duty of

the Baskerville Advisor of Personal Affairs to advise the Chief of Staff on how to resolve personal

issues. The Advisor of Personal Affairs must be available for contact at virtually all times due the

possibility of an emergency. It is important to note that the Advisor of Personal Affairs will be

exposed to extraordinary amounts of personal details concerning the Chief of Staff, and as such

this Advisor must be of the utmost trustworthiness. The Advisor of Personal Affairs must

be reliable, compassionate, and trustworthy.

Advisor of Realm of the Mad God:

For several years, Realm of the Mad God has remained one of Villoux’s largest departments.

Though the Chief of Staff does stay involved in the department’s administration, the Chief of Staff

does not personally play the game. It is the duty of the Advisor of Realm of the Mad God to

consult with the Chief of Staff before hosting Realm of the Mad God-related meetings to brief the

Chief of Staff on all in-game information pertinent to the meeting. The Advisor of Realm of the

Mad God should be extremely well versed in gameplay, possess undeniable skill in the game, and

be familiar with Villoux’s Realm of the Mad God Department’s history.

Advisor of Spirituality:

The Chief of Staff’s position is one that requires many difficult decisions be made. Whenever

concerned about implications of such decisions or whenever the Chief of Staff is in a position of

needing spiritual guidance on a matter, it is important that the Chief of Staff has an Advisor to

consult. It is the duty of the Baskerville Advisor of Spirituality to give spiritual advice to the Chief

of Staff and be well-versed in an array of religious customs, especially those that are prevalent in

Villoux. The Advisor of Spirituality should be confident in faith, knowledgeable of the religious

customs of those in Villoux, and willing to work outside of his or her own faith to explore assisting

those from other faiths. The Advisor of Spirituality is not required to be of any specific faith,

including that of the Chief of Staff’s.

Page 15: Baskerville Cabinet Handbook - Villoux Server System · Baskerville Assistant Manager and Advisors report to the Baskerville Advisor Manager. The Manager of your position is your

Advisor of Succession:

It is not abnormal for a member of the Baskerville Cabinet to be reassigned to a more prominent

position in the system. When a member of the Cabinet has been decidedly granted to a different

department, that member of the Cabinet will become an Advisor of Succession. It is the duty of

the Baskerville Advisor of Succession to learn the role of the future position to which they will be

reassigned, generally a position as a Department Chairman or Executive.

Advisor of Villoux History:

After being established in 2010, the Villoux Server System has achieved many milestones and

overcome several obstacles. It is the duty of the Advisor of Villoux History to serve as the chief

historian within the system and remind the system’s leaders of previous experiences Villoux may

have had with a game, community, user, or regulation. The Advisor of Villoux History shall cite

examples from the system’s past to illustrate Villoux’s successes and failures and compare those

previous experiences to ongoing and future occurrences within the system.

Advisor of Villoux Law:

The Villoux Server System relies on the Villoux Bill of Ordinances for governance. It is the duty

of the Advisor of Villoux Law to be extremely well-versed with the Villoux Bill of Ordinances and

have an understanding for why all clauses and ordinances within it are valuable to the success and

longevity of the server system. The Advisor of Villoux Law should also provide guidance to both

the Chief of Staff and the Grand Council when they attempt to alter imposed regulation or instate

new regulations. It is generally recommended that former Grand Council Members hold this

position as they are the users in the system most familiar with the Villoux Bill of Ordinances.

Villoux Ambassadors:

At various times, it may become necessary for the Villoux Server System to represent itself in other

communities or inter-community organizations. During these times, the Villoux Chief of Staff may

appoint an Ambassador to another community. Ambassadors are not considered Baskerville

Advisor, though they are treated very similarly. The major difference being that the Ambassadors

are not subject to administration from either of the Managers nor the Executive Baskerville

Assistant; instead, reporting directly to the Chief of Staff.

Chapter 6 – Other General Information

Playing Video Games with Dr. Baskerville

The Grand Council Ordinance restricts the number of users with which Dr. Baskerville

can casually play games. He is able to play matches with senior staff, such as members of the

Discord Operation Department, members of the TeamSpeak Operation Department, members

of the Baskerville Cabinet, and members of the Grand Council. The only games Dr. Baskerville

casually plays are League of Legends and Team Fortress 2. If you play a match of League of

Legends with Dr. Baskerville, always allow him to create the lobby. If you see him in a match of

Team Fortress 2 and would like to join him, always request his permission first prior to joining him

unless he is playing on a Villoux Team Fortress 2 server.

Interacting with Dr. Baskerville on Social Media:

If you wish to add Dr. Baskerville on various social media websites, you may request to do

so. He only maintains active Facebook, Instagram, and SnapChat accounts. For his contact

information, you should approach him and ask for it yourself. Should he choose to accept your

invitation, you may not redistribute any of his information (including usernames, real name, etc.) to

anyone else at any time. Sharing personal information can result in a ban, so be mindful of what

you say. Please try not be offended if Dr. Baskerville denies your request to interact on social

media as he likes to maintain a private life outside of Villoux.

Monthly Meetings:

Every month, the Villoux Server System hosts two governmental meetings. The first is the

public House of Players meeting, which is generally held on the last week of every month. You,

along with all of the other members of the system staff, are expected to attend the monthly House

of Players meeting on Villoux’s Discord Server. In the House of Players Meetings, Department

Chairmen will give updates on their departments, and Executives will make announcements.

During the course of the meeting, the master of ceremonies will call for users to make questions,

comments, or concerns. If you wish, you may voice a question, comment, or concern when the

the #villoux_calendar text channel. If you know you will not be able to attend the meeting, please

private meeting only for Grand Council Members, and will therefore not require your attendance.
