How can someone find the clan and join now we don't appear in the directory? Any suggestions welcome.
The only clans that appear in the directory are ones that started a challenge in the last 30 days. You can always make announcements in the forum, or you can simply make little one-game challenge matches - maybe that you really don't care if you win or lose - just to keep your clan listed. Still, the listing shouldn't make that much difference for your clan. I would think that the exchange of ideas among your members and their contacts would keep your clan active.
