"A clan is -NOT- a "magical
refrigerator" on the internet that is
filled by mommy and daddy. A clan starts off
more like an "empty box". In order
for your clan to have the "neat things"
(like servers, events, great members), EVERYone in and around your clan must GIVE
something TO the clan and the clan must
SURVIVE. If everyone continually gives a
little to the clan, and they do not take or
demand too much attention back from the clan,
and if the clan is stable and continues to
grow and to exist, with time, the clan (AKA
the "empty box") will slowly fill
and you will build a great clan."
"successful" clan is a LOT of work,
so get/ ask/ beg/ convince/ recruit, until
you find **SEVERAL** FRIENDLY and HELPFUL
people to ALSO SHARE THE POWER of being
"in charge" of your clan while
SHARING the WORK of running a successful clan.
Share in the authority and work. We call
these guys "COUNCIL Members" in our
club, they set policies and assign and
distribute work and authority. Get some HELP,
because building a successful clan is a LOT
of work. Divide up the AUTHORITY and WORK.
Decide who will be in charge of which parts
of the clan "chores": web site,
message board moderator, recruitment, finding
servers/ rconing events, try outs, running
There is no
such things as a clan with one person in it.
Search out and find good people that are
mature and understand the amount of work that
is required to build a clan. Go get some
HELP, share the work, responsibility, and
power. Always reward and delegate authority
to the loyal hard workers in your clan.
