    Just wondered if we could have a list for players who have wanted to join the clan when it is full, like a next in line type of thing. I know obviously that there will be certain specifics that some leaders might want if they get a space, but they could look at the list and pick one then.

    That could be a good idea.

    Thanks It woulddefinately speed up the recruiting process when a member leaves the clan.

    I like this idea too. It could be like a subs bench, where you (clan leader as manager/coach) could choose to substutite clan mambers who are on holiday or those who are unavailable for a long period of time.

    It'd be like an alternative to just kicking someone out of the clan...

    You could be allowed to be a full member of 3 clans, leader of 1 and on the subs bench for one more....

    I think its a good idea, but could be abused.

    Clan leaders could bring in those on the subs bench, load them with games and then replace with someone else and give them games ad infinitum (well, to the extent of your waiting list). In other words, you could circumvent the max members limitation...

    I think it's a great idea. I definately think you should have a waiting list for new clan members. But I think the subs idea should be seperate and limited to say 2 subs for when people are on vacation or not moving etc.

    But couldn't it also be used by unscrupulous clan leaders to weed out their weaker players if they know that there's a better player waiting to join? Kick that useless git and get the 2100 player...

    I only mention it, because that's exactly what my boss told me when I worked at Tesco. "There's a waiting list for your job..."

    Just out of interest, is there a "Losers' Clan"?

    although there's no big advantage having high-rated players in a clan.
    the most successful clans points-wise have lots of players in the 1000-1400 range, who often take on lots of games.
    2100 players rarely play lots of games at once (unless they're ironman...)

    Unless you play in the leagues (and your high-rated players are willing to play in the league for your clan).
