What is an RF Division?
The Rebel Federation is called a “Federation” for a reason. Federations are typically a form of government made up of other smaller self-governing bodies. In our context, we’re an organization with smaller divisions that have internal autonomy, where they have come together to form a single community through teamwork, networking, and cooperation. Our Divisions establish different parts of the Rebel Federation that play similar games or share common interests, and are organized by holding weekly group events and practices.
Divisions require a player base of at least 10+ active members to get started.

In the past few years, the Rebel Federation has had roughly a dozen or so divisions, coming and going, trying out different games and interests together. Not all divisions stay active forever, but just as many new ones are being organized by RF members across the community.
Divisions are free to build and use an organizational structure that works best for them. Divisions often have their own rank structure. In the broader RF community, Divisions are led by Division Leaders, which is a community rank above RF Member. These Division Leaders are usually the RF Members who start the Division or were elected by the Division’s leadership to serve that position. They are responsible for exactly what the name describes, leading the division, and making sure it’s active for members involved. It’s a community leadership opportunity. Successful Division Leaders occasionally go on to become RF Administrators and lifetime members of the Rebel Federation.
Divisions, when they start, are given a portal channel on the Hub Discord server linking to their own server to help build interest and visibility among RF members. As the division grows, its Discord server grows with it and receives increased support from RF’s Teams, and eventually a blog that can be used to post information and updates.
Divisions who have a Discord also typically own their own Discord, there’s no requirement to give up the keys—we consider RF a community effort. RF’s Hub Command (HUBCOM) supports Division Discord servers through maintenance, role set up, graphics set up, and bot setup—we even have our own bots that can be configured to help!
Division Types and Hub Command Support
As an RF Division grows, so does the support from RF’s Hub Command. Divisions that continuously grow and become more popular have Discords set up for them, and then eventually receive a blog on the RF site. For example, Minecraft’s site is Minecraft.RebelFederation.com. Divisions must continuously meet requirements to access higher tiers of support, such as ensuring their community meets our community standards, is active, and has a responsible leadership team.
|Division Class||Dedicated Discord Icon + Staff Roles||Discord Bots + Setup Support||Economy + Graphics Support||Dedicated Website + Donations Support|
|A | 1000+ Members||✓||✓||✓||✓|
|B | 500+ Members||✓||✓||✓|
|C | 100+ Members||✓||✓|
|D [NEW] | 10+ Members||✓|
Division Reporting Requirements
Divisions are required to create a monthly report on their activities, submitted by one of the Division Leaders. It’s a simple questionnaire that allows RF’s Hub Command to determine the proper resources that should be allocated to the division, what tier the division is, and also allows a chance for Division Leaders to request further assistance or assets—such as graphics and Twitch channel appearances.
If a Division report is not received soon after the report opens, the Division’s status is reevaluated.
Create a New Division
Are you ready to become a community leader? Let’s be frank, Divisions are hard work. You’re in for it. But it takes a lot to become an RF-wide legend, and you already know that. You may open a support ticket in the Hub Discord to set you on your path forward to becoming a Division Leader. This ticket allows you to apply for Division status, but first, you must meet a few requirements.
- Have at least 10 RF Members who are willing to join, or already have joined your cause.
- Have a 10+ member Discord that meets our Community Standards.
- Have a dedicated leadership team, destined to become Division Leaders.
- Have read through the Federating Procedure as mentioned in Section 3-4 of the RF Staff Manual.
It’s also suggested that you’re playing a popular game that’s accessible to as many RF members as possible!
