STONEY here ... time for another article... so to speak...

I keep getting asked... WHY DO I WANT TO BE IN A CLAN... What benefit do i get?

I was thinking about this... and i looked at all the clans... and I started looking even closer... there are 47 CLANS that are listed, in order of creation... So THE BOTTOM LINE is the last one... and NOBLEMASTER is the first...

My concern... there are 34 clans... that have a max of 3 players, most of them have 2 or 1... and they are completely INACTIVE... no games played in the last 30 days (AT LEAST)... Can they be deleted... not the accounts but the clans...

I mean with 13 clans to choose from... then the membership means that much more... and then the challenges can be created.... and the guantlets can be thrown down... better CLAN WARS... better games... everything would be better...

SO TELL ME... WHAT CAN BE DONE...

something to chew on ... enjoy...

StoneCold...

THE BOTTOM LINE... creator...

I'd guess that Shadow Rising is one that has few active players. Maybe only ImLagging is active... (I'm in Shadow Rising)

There's no harm in these inactive clans. Perhaps in the future when there are more inactive clans than active... then do something.

Perhaps in the future when there are more inactive clans then there are activ clans????

:o

if you read my post... 47 clans.... 34 inactive clans... = only 13 claqns with active members... hmmmm UBER...

maybe, instead of complete deletion... maybewe can move the ones that inactive to the bottom of the list and the ones that are actvie to the beginning of the list... so as to not let the active clans swim with the bottom feeders at the end of a list of NON ACTIVE CLANS...

:irre:

come on now UBER... :headbash: dont beat yourself up about this simple visualization...

thanks...

OK to beat a dead horse... of the 47 clans... these clans have no activity in the last 30 days... NONE... ZERO... 47-34=13 ACTIVE CLANS

LES TEMPLIERS
HOUSE OF STARK
JIAST
TRET
RADICAL UPSTARTS
LORDS OF EVILS
REFENCY MANOP
SULANY
BRAZILIANS UNIT
GENTRACO
BRUTAL ASSAULT MOB
HISPANIA
IKAVA
GAMEBIND AoC
MEXICO CITY
BNGS
AKATSUKI
POLSKA DIA POLAKOW
STEELMEN
NO-CLAN PLAYERS
THE ROBOTIC ARMY
DARK KNIGHTS
FLUFFY PINK COWS
HONOR AND GLORY
GODS
HUNGARIAN HUNTERS
RI_CLAN
GERMAN WAR SLAYERS
UNITED SLAVS
SLAVA UKRAINI
DACIAN-ROMANIAN BROTHERS
FF CEDRY
GREAT PARFIA
OMEN

All of these clans have at most 3 members, most of them only have their creators in them... a few have 2 members...

and all of them are just taking up space like all of the completed games that were cleaned up a few weeks ago for all of those that were being dragged down with them like a sea anchor...

Whether something gets done or not... I would just like to bring this to the attention to the powers that be... Dead weight slows things down... more band space means more enjoyment...

ENJOY IT....

Perhaps the less active clans could go to the bottom of the list. I don't think they should be deleted as the players from those clans may come back at a future date.

Ah, I read your post wrong. It can be confusing to read when random words are capitalized :roll:

Nevertheless... instead of deleting, maybe have the join button grayed out if the clan is inactive and maybe a message somewhere that states it's inactivity.

I did put in a feature request that clans can only be started by paid members to help minimize the clans that are created by people with trial memberships. But I'm not sure if that suggestion ever ended up on the to-do list. I'm pretty sure that the majority of the inactive clans were created by someone during their 7 day trial and then abandoned along with their account when that trial was over.

I'm also pretty sure that my suggestion would at least limit the issue we have now from growing, but not fix the issue we currently have.

Location: Planet Earth, most of the time.
All are good ideas:
1) Only paid members can create a clan
2) List clans by most active to least active
3) Grey out the join button if the clan is inactive for 30+ days

I'll through out a modified idea on #3.
4) Delete clan (not accounts) if all members are inactive for 6+ months. This clean up routine can be done once a year similar to yearly resetting of the seasonal ratings.

I don't like 2)

that would give us a clan section wich change all the time, i 'd prefer we do nothing with the order of active clan but kick inactive clan at the end of the list.
So the clan section would be cleaned in the firt time and then only when a clan appear or become inactive, not everytime a player takes holydays or quit or than a clan get a new member.
Then it's easier to implemente i guess
Code:
no active member in the last 30 days => end of the list ; grey out

The idea is not to create a rating for clan activity but to help people who wants to join a clan to see all active clan easily.

Ilike 4) too.
