    This clan has *exploded* beyond all expectations. Its great that mac people want to come together- united and ready for conquest and a common goal. Now to my plan for world domination.

    Jakeman (I think) mentioned that we should *not* put a limit on clan size. I think that's great- mac people don't exclude each other (unlike other clans). However large clans can be uncomfortably crowded. My suggestion is that we could possibly create clan regions or 'subtribes' who could specialise in particular tactics or interests. None of these should fight amongst themselves or make other subclans seem inferior etc, but it could offer added support, and the opportunity to get to know other users a little better.

    What do you think? I might work or it might not. The important thing is to use it to Bind the clan togther (not to divide it)! In much the same way as ambulance, fire fighters and police help together at emergencies (<insert better analogy here> ).. anyway. Give it some thought!

    Good Idea... I think Jakeman is doing something similar to what you said; hes seperating seperate adminship to different "class" leaders..

    However, subclans or tribes might be helpful; for instance, the paladin/necromancer/barbarian groups are allready proving to grow at rapid rates..it might be helpful to break them up into subclans under the admins so as to help with reaction times from the "Clan Authority"..

    A good idea would be to break up groups based on training style. Necromancers could be broken down into hexers/cursers and summoners. Sorceresses down into what magic they like to specialize in, etc.etc...I think we will have to wait until the game comes out tho, before making proper subclans; we would need to have to look at how people train within the game and what subclans would be appropriate. It's not very efficient to have a subclan with 2 people in it, lets say, when those 2 people could belong to the "general" subclan (no specific training regimen) instead.

    Just an Idea..

    I think is a job for the sub-leaders to decide, within their own tribes. Until a sub-leader is implemented, putting all this pressure and responsibility on one leader is pretty tough. Especially if they're HTMLing, answering all inquiry emails, checking up on forums, deciding tags, mottos, and all this other stuff, we've been thinking up. Let's just take it step by step. No need to put up distractive thoughts when we haven't even reached region population.

    one supporting factor for sub clans is world location of members. For example, if you're from Australia (we have several Australian members) then connecting to a US server to play would result in lag time. We could divide clans up by regions so members could play with other people local to them so they wouldn't have lag. However, sub clans would take some doing as far as assigning members to certain ones. We'll wait on that for now. Like you said, we've got time. [​IMG]

    As i have said before, splitting up the clan is a bad idea, in unity lies power. another reason we should not split up the clan is that tribe leaders may not get along and that could cause inter-clan warfare.

    Hehe, MacPhoenix and I were talking about how it would be cool that if someone kiled a clan member, they would report it to the other members and we would look for the guy who killed and kill him LOL. If we got enough people, people might be scared to kill us!

    No, this is not breaking up the clan. I'm against that to, and if it degenerates into that we should abort the idea. The idea is to hopefully bring people with common interests closer, given that *everyone* here has a common interest to begin with [​IMG]

    at all costs I want to avoid splitting up the clan. sections by character would only be for help with my e-mail situation. but I may not even do that.
