Clans: Leaders and Officers Suggestion (in General)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 24 2011 12:44 PM EST

So I was just thinking about this and we were just discussing it in chat, and I wanted to get everyone's opinion on the subject.

Most games that have clans/guilds have some sort of ranking hierarchy, so that the weight of clan duties isn't all on one persons shoulders. We all know its impossible for people to be on at all times, and to hit every ritual when it needs to be hit, or accept members when the clan owner is not around (if clan is moderated).

My suggestion is simply to allow for a clan owner and either one to two other officers to help out with clan duties. Basically officers would be able to accept people into the clan or activate rits, but wouldn't be allowed to kick people (to prevent someone from getting mad and kicking the whole clan out, most likely wouldn't happen but you never know).

Its just a simple suggestion to help ease the weight off some clan owners shoulders. Let me know what you guys think.

I'd find the possibility to have someone activate rituals a good idea!
I'd however limit the amount of officers to 1, or 2 at the most.

I like the idea of officers to help with rituals. I don't think accepting/denying applications is an overwhelming burden, however, and do not see why officers would have this ability as well .

Though it's way more complicated than a paper cut, feel free to throw it on there and get Pit to update that table. Also feel free to get Lamuness and Verifex to hack on more of those issues.

Its not really necessary for them to be able to accept people, I just thought it would be nice for the clans that are moderated, its not at all essential though just something to help out a bit. I however definitely like the idea of helping out with clan rits the most.

And yes, it would be one to two officers at the most.

Pit has been notified and I told him to start up a new papercuts thread & update the table since the old one is closed right now.

This would be awesome.

Our clans aren't large enough to warrant officers, but making it so that the leader can allow everyone to activate rituals isn't a bad idea. However, if we have officers, I'd suggest (stolen from S&F) that we make it so that if the leader disappears for two weeks, the leadership status can transfer to an officer. There's an inherent risk of a clan getting locked up if the leader takes an unexpected hiatus.

Well Demi that was kinda my whole take on the thing, as it stands now if your clan leader disappears even for a few days, your clan growth is basically stunted.

I don't think our clans are too small to warrant one to two officers.. its not like s&f where clans have about 50 members and you have multiple officers. Its more like each clan has a leader and an officer or two with my idea. This way if the clan leader decides to take a break for a day or so (maybe even longer), it wont end up hurting the entire clan.

i personally would love this because it would allow leaders to not be as strict on thenmselves about when they login
