    I send an announcement to IMG and what do I get? 24 new members!!! We are at 31 right now!

    Oh yeah, thanks a lot you guys! I get back from a long day of work and check my e-mail and what do I see? An entire screen filled with nothing but "Diablo 2 Sign up Form" e-mails! I've spent 2 hours sorting through these things. Now I've probably got carpol-tunnel. Crap! It's 12:30am right now! *joking chuckle* [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeah, that's all well and good, but perhaps we should be a little more, uh, moderate?

    I mean, the more the merrier, but too many members and the clan will lose a personal feeling. I learned this from Myth II. Perhaps we should cap the clan at, say, 50 members? There will probably be a few people who never really play a lot, and a few people who we don't really want around, so the available slots for membership would be open every once and a while.

    That's a good point. I never thought of that. Though, ideally I would like to include all the Mac people I can. That personal feeling may be lacking, but at least the "bunch of Mac buds" feeling will be healthy. Does anyone else have an opinion on this?

    Hey all, one of the new members here to say hi. I'll be playing one of the many paladins. Paladins and Mac Users, there's something holy about our struggle [​IMG]
    I'm looking forward to gaming with the lot of you, I'll get my web site tuned up and toss some character-related stuff up there.

    Hello everybody,
    Here is my idea about new members:
    Until diablo releases, we can accept everyone who wants to join. After the game starts, we can arrange some rules or we can divide into allied clans i don't know.

    Well, I just got home from work and 3 more people had sent me sign up forms. Now we are up to 42 members! Quite a healthy number! I think it's going to be awesome to play with other Mac people. We'll have organized games and stuff too. If Apple hurries up and does something new with the G4s, I'll get one of those and turn my iMac into a dedicated Diablo 2 server for the clan. I'm on a DSL connection so it should be pretty fast. Though my upstream maxes at 25Kps. I think it should still be sufficient.

    I figure that if you feel like doing the work
    let people join up and when we start in September? we'll trim the excess fat.

    I already have several people that I haven't heard from since they joined. Nor have they signed up for the message board. I don't know it that means they are flakes or what. We'll see. [​IMG] (they probably just don't check their e-mail 20 times a day like I do, so they haven't read the new member e-mail yet) [​IMG]

    I think there should be a certain ammount of time that one should be absent from playing Diablo II until they are considered inactive, and their membership slot becomes open for another possible candidate... unless they're off on a trip, or something.

    yeah, Fintanisco said it. Not to get too personal, but it would be good to let everyone know if your not going to be around, like out on a vacation, or getting that broom handle removed from your ass, or something. Just so everyone, especially admin, knows what the dilly is!

    Ideally, you guys are right. But with so many people joining it's hard to keep track. I think once the new joins start to settle down I'll send out a confirmation e-mail to everyone. I will keep track of who responds and who doesn't. Because I don't want names just sitting there on the clan site without people to back them.

    Jakeman -=- I think everyone here is correct...unfortunately we are running into a "nice problem" in that we have many members that want to join, but I wonder how many will play.
    I think somewhere/somehow a cap needs to be set but I'm not sure how it can be done with the guidelines that are in place.

    Best To All,
    Justice

    What do you guys think about taking a reserve list for now?

    Justice and I have been talking over e-mail. He suggested something that I think is a good idea. We could put a cap on the number of each character. Like we could have a cap of 20 members per character, then the rest would go into a reserve list until we figure out what to do with such a high demand for membership. I kind of like this idea. With a cap of 20 per character we would eventually have a max of 100 members. Then we would have a reserve list to go to if anyone dropped. What do you guys think?

    The reserve list is a good idea. At this rate
    we could have 20 regulars and 20 characters on reserve for each class.
    We definitely won't have a problem with too few players........damn, the game's not even out yet!
