But how do we sieve the serious clan leaders from the just curious ones? As being a new clan leader with a great need of mentoring, I don't have any natural place where I can get information how to lead a clan.
Well, I can always mail my fellow clan ...[text shortened]... t my proposition to wanting a FAQ that describes in a better way how a clan best is managed.
What I would recommend is find a clan that is fashioned the way that you would want to have your clan go.
In essence, IVV, Metallica, Big Mistake, Jewish clan, and so on, have been geared towards high volumed games. lots of points and marching their way to the top of the clan list.
Other clans like the Vikings, King David, or more geared for Leagues. While others still are more for the enjoyment of a common interest.
Build your clan to your liking and have fun with it.
Watch for sleepers from challenges. Those that have ratings that are far below what they should be. Try to always put out fair challenges.
In a nutshell just have fun, find a clan to make a "rival" with. Mine has the MUTI to deal with. IVV has the Dogs. This helps get your name out and get recognized.
Recruit. Develop a recruiting letter, find subscribers that you may want to have in your clan, send them the letter, and shake off any rejection you may get.
The bottom line is to have fun. don't let the "pressure" of other clans statement or rating/rank get to you. Run your clan as you want to.
