    If a majority of clan members voted together for a particular new leader then so be it.

    this would be a very stupid idea because i am a clan leader.

    every member could perhaps always have a preferred leader. this of course would be unknown to the other members. whoever had the most supprt would be it.

    as i said b4 - a very bad idea.

    It's not bad (even though I'm a clan leader) but I think when they vote they must have an extremly good reason for: Why they want the current leader out and why they want the perwson they voted for out. These reasons could be forwarded onto Russ and he could take care of the situation.

    There's also the thing to consider that not everyone in a clan is eager to take on the clan leader's job. So the nominated member would also have to want to take over.

    And I agree with Russ that it would end up in tears. Imagine someone who's founded a clan and devoted time to recruiting members, and maybe even put up a website, suddenly getting the clan "taken over" by some charismatic, discustingly likable, ruthless newbie.

    I do see a situation where a clan should be able to switch leaders - if the leader disappears off the site for a long time, without letting anyone know, and can't be gotten in touch with. But I don't think any real changes need to be made for that contingency - in such a case I think the clan members could probably just decide on the new leader and contact Russ about making a switch.

    I get it now. Also with the website bit people may not have done a free website and are paying for the clan website and then suddenly there chucked off and down goes all the money.

    Question -

    If you don't like the clan leader, is there something preventing the formation of a new clan?
