Retirements and Inactivity portion of the DoS Rules have been changed from...
Retirements and Inactivity
Inactive/Retired Duelist List

1. If a duelist goes through a cycle without a duel you will be taken off the standings and placed on the Inactive Duelist List. This includes all title holders.
a. If a title holder is inactive for an entire cycle, their title shall be considered abdicated and that title shall be placed in the appropriate tournament as a prize. (See specific titles for the type of tournament.)
2. Duelers who no longer on the standings due to inactivity or retiring may duel at last recorded rank as shown on the Inactive/Retired Duelist List, provided they inform the caller on duty prior to the start of any duel that they are listed on the Inactive/Retired Duelist List and link them to the above thread.

3. This list will be provided as a sticky under the DoS OOC folder and a link will be provided to it from the DoS standings.

4. Duelers from the Inactive/Retired Duelist List will be moved to the Active Standings after they have finished a single duel. Reinstatement does not apply until the Standings are updated.

5. The Inactive / Retired Duelist must continue providing any new caller with this information until such time as they are placed back on official Standings.

6. There is no requirement to contact the standings keeper, unless a discrepancy is found.
