    Where would you put it?
    I for one don't look on the clans thread anymore because all that's ever on it is metallica and ivv stuff

    Get Firefox/Greasemonkey or Chrome/Tampermonkey and you can have all kinds of saved scripts.

    Yep. The clan forum has lost its way. It's no longer part of an exciting or interesting clan system that folks would want to join. I imagine what it looks like to people checking out the site, or exploring clans. The foul language, abuse and sheer repetition in that forum is likely a deterrent to many people thinking of joining. It is a real ugly, unappealing blemish on the face of RHP.

    Spot on, if you are genuinely seeking anything remotely 'clan useful', you'd have no option but to either go elsewhere or more likely just not bother ! I think it's one reason why the clubs are doing so so well and the clan leagues are going down the pan. I can't remember the last time I TRIED to get a league thread 'consistently' utilised there, I just gave up in the end..attempts at creating more league interest did result in an entirely new league layout, but the clan system is just plain unattractive to so so many new members that the numbers are not nearly what was hoped for. It's a bloody shame !
    It's poorly moderated; sorry moderation team but why can't ALL the consistently repetitive 'IVV v Metallica drivel' go in one great big thread instead of allowing all these useless additional 'recruitment' threads !?? Unless something like this is done, anyone 'genuinely' posting there is not realising what a wast of time their efforts are...you may as well just can the forum altogether if it continues 'as is'.

    Yes, but nobody seems to understand it there...as indicated in the last 'addition' to that thread, they WILL lose the forum...

    When moderators try to do something about it people seem to cry about it bleating about freedom of speech. I have also got to the stage of giving up with the clan forum same 2 clans killing it and only a handful of members either side doing it

    Yes, I can see your point...I just think that all this name calling nonsense is actually affecting other perhaps more 'needy' clans from ever being to able utilise that dedicated forum. One example of that is that for years clan leaders would just leave a solitary note saying something like: 'two players urgently needed for upcoming league'...they'd post it and RELY upon it being read by SOME interested parties. Now, all this bollox name calling has put these otherwise previously 'interested parties' off from venturing in there.....also, that solitary post is just nigh on invisible after the umpteen nonsense threads are 'bumped' up the order. The clan leader then can only wonder why nobody has bothered to contact him about the league places..he wonders only until he sees just what a wast of time it was relying upon his post in the first place...

    Don't know how successfull the league recruitment campaign was Dean, but personally the only new clan members I have ever attracted have been thro' personal invitations or people wanting to join a clan and looking thro' the clan list.
    It helps of course that we are on the first page so I suppose that although the list is not a measure of success, it does show who are the active clans, especially if you use the last challenge filter
    As far as I'm concerned, the "usual suspects" can use the clan forum for whatever they like.I never look at it.

    What Dean (if I may) describes is one potential use of the Clan forum that has been lost. The very same thing does still go on in the Clubs forum. Club leaders basically advertise interesting clubs or club activities and from the way some of them have grown and clubs have multiplied I'd say those recruitment efforts have been successful. A similar Clan forum could have similar results: increased clan participation and a revived interest in clan, and re-invigorated clan competition. But we all know those posts have been drowned out in the Clan forum by the ongoing regurgitated tripe to the point where they no longer get posted. And of course fewer people bother reading the forum so any such posts go unseen anyway.

    Seems to me if the site shuts the forum down, nothing will be lost. Or rather it already has been lost if people are avoiding the forum because of its content. And if IVV and Metallica need to continue their little spat they can create a club and carry on in private. No reason their fight has to be public, deny everyone else a potentially useful and enjoyable forum, and present an ugly often obscene face to new visitors to the site.

    Any one notice how quiet certain groups in that forum have been lately?
