    I need a Clan! - Sign off....

    Would'nt it be a wonderful thing for those recruiting for clans if message request threads could be signed off with a "Have found a clan". There are so many hanging messages in that room and I'm sure that most players find a clan within 12-24 hours. Seems a bit pointless to send an invitation to a request that is 1 day old or more, unless of course the player pops back onto the thread to say they are still looking. That's helpful too.

    Agreed. Too many players don't even reply at all.

    It would also be great if people were prevented from just spamming their clan recruitment spiel to every request for a clan regardless of suitability but alas I don't think the forum is set up to prevent that!

    Don't you love the ones who spam their posts on threads that are completely inappropriate, too? There will be a threaded dated from 1984 and someone will still spam post their recruitment.

    On CommunityRoyale, those threads are not allowed for the same reason. The logic is that a person looking for a clan can just look at the multitude of clan recruitment threads already in Clan Chat. The "I need a clan" threads get shut down

    I mean, I agree with this entirely. I don't really see the value in having both.

    On the surface, it seems like people posting recruitment threads are too lazy to scour the 'I Need A Clan' subforum, and people posting saying they need a clan are too lazy to sift through the 'Looking For Clanmates' subforum. But in reality, I think the cross-over is substantial and so we have the problem the OP raised.

    Ditch one, keep one. I think that's the best idea.

    I've had success on both sides. I get contacted through my thread, but I recruit more people through their threads. So for me, if we dumped one, it'd be the clan recruitment threads, not the other way around. However, I see no gain whatsoever from dumping either of them. Wanting people to come back and say that they've found a clan isn't a reason to lose the whole forum. It's not like the threads clutter up General. If you don't want to go into the "I Need a Clan" sub-forum, it's very easy to avoid.

    All true, and if wishes were horses ... etc. Last night was a demoralising run through both the chat rooms sifting for suitable players.
    PS Sharky, like your Private Message link in signature - do you mind if it gets copied?
