    inactive clan leader

    When a clan leader stops playing coc he doesn't always (I belive this acually happens quite often ) make another member the new leader before deleting the game.

    So why not intruducing a way for co-leaders to elect a new leader, if the old one has been inactive for like half a year? (You can argue about how long it should take before that becomes possible, because someone can always re-install the game, but having a leader that has been inactive for more than a year can be extremely anoying and you can't do anything about it.)

    Such a function MAY require a co-leader minimum, because if there are just 2, one can always promote a 2nd account and than elect himself, but that would probably be controversial, because not every clan has like 5+ co-leaders.

    The election could be done like that:
    - when a l. (I probably wrote "leader" so often already, that you don't want to read the word anymore so I'll just write l. and co. from now on.) has been inactive for x days a button will apper in the change clan menu that says "elect a new l."
    - to make sure the co.s notice that a clan-message will be send automaticly
    - a co. can press that button and a big ! will appear above every co.s clan castle
    - next to "request troop" will be a glowing "leader election" where co.s can select any elder or co. to be the new l.
    - There will be enough time (like 2 weeks) to vote, so that if a co is e.g. on vaccation and has terrible internet there, he would still be able to take part. It won't be infinite though because you can't gurantee that no co. has deleted the game durring the time l. was inactive.
    - After the time is over the member with the most votes (obviously) will become the new l. and the former one will be a co.
    - if there is a draw, the old l. will stay and you have to start another election (there could be a cooldown but I don't belive thats nessesary)
    - if there were 6+ votes but the highest candidate has just 2 it should count as draw (in my opinion)

    Do you agree or is there a flaw in this system?

    I think an easier and less time-consuming solution would be to leave your clan and start a new one. You could also contact support to have leadership transferred, but that's only if the Leader has been inactive for 180 days, and even then, it's transferred to the longest serving Co-leader anyway.

    I can understand wanting leadership if your clan is high level and you don't want to give it up, but if it's not high level (say less than LV 5), it isn't too difficult to level it right back up.

    Leave your clan with a bunch of your clan members and start a new one. Nothing you can do about an inactive clan leader unless you can contact her or him outside of the game.

    I appreciate your idea. I personally suffer like same situation. Our leader is not active for more than six months. We can handle the Clan without him. But problem is different. We have some Co leaders too who also stop playing for long time. So, their bases are unnecessarily blocking the space as only Leader can kick them. Apart form the situation, new members are always curious why Leader is not active. Is there any other alternative?

    please allow elections for clan leader, after leader is inactive for over a year

    I totally agree with this, and I would like to have the option to elect a new leader after the leader has been inactive for over a year. In my clan the leader rejoined as a new account, but he swears he cannot reactivate the leader account. we have quite a few co-leaders that are also inactive and we cannot kick them out, because only the leader has that ability. as a result, we are slowing dying as a clan since we cannot add new active members. Saying we should start a new clan is just wrong. it took us years to get to the level 10 status. It is not fair to the clan members that have been dedicated and active to have to start over at level 1, or to join another clan where we do not know the other members.

    My leader is inactive for 2 years already. Where can I contact the support? Is it possible to give the leader position to the co-leader with major donation?(we have some inactive co-leader too)
    I don't want leave the clan beacause we are a liv 10 clan....

    Sorry for my english(it isn't my first language)

    solution is simple -- TIE THE GAME -- into the FORUMS -- have all game accounts tied into an email so that players can directly contact other players through a medium that is OUTSIDE of the game --

    properly implement a real chat system like Discord into the forums here -

    let people attach phone numbers, street addresses and other info into their accounts...


    THEN...

    if you are looking to join a clan -- and the leaders did not bother to add any of this info.. DONT JOIN THEM... go find a better more organized clan that has longevity in mind.

    - Our clan uses external chat apps, exchanges phone numbers emails facebooks and we generally dont rely on just the game to talk... if we did - we would have lost every one of our clans at one point in time or another to inactive people... (who generally still live on this planet and are happy to log inand pass lead if they only realized they still had it)

    --Inactive clan lead suggestion should be implemented as a policy -- as long as the original clan leader can return at any time and take ownership back - or unless the owner of the clan specifically opts out of it so that it will never transfer... some hardcore clans would rather go dormant with a perfect war log than let someone else take it over and butcher it...
