You get booted because while you were inactive, a friend joined a banned crew
or got banned
and you didn't respond. For a short hiatus, there is no need to leave the Cartel, but please note that your friend list may become compromised during that time. If you permanently leave the Cartel, please let us know so we could free up the slot. You can always reapply if you left in good standing.
If you are on a hiatus please keep an eye on our #announcements channel. The most important information will be communicated there (i.e. new banned members or purges). It may be necessary for you to react to this messages.
