    How about the chess host messaging your clan whe a new thread has been started in the private forum?

    Then you know that you are reaching those you intend to reach.
    Its easy to forget the private forum is there when it isnt being used, and you cant really expect your clan to watch patiently until you have some news for them. If they were messaged when a topic came up, they would know they are not wasting their time checking a page with no aditional info.

    It might make those who dont normally check the private forum to give it a look, thus feuling participation?

    do you spend your day being a pain in the ass?


    wait, thats a no brainer.

    a better question would be, can you just take five minutes off from being an ass once in a while?

    give everybody a rest?



    The answer to your question is, no i dont spend all day thinking up dumb ideas. I just saw a problem ( keeping clan members interested in a static forum) and posted it in the appropriate forum. (for once. . .i deserve that one)


    They should create a "being a bit of a nob most of the time" forum, then at least we'd know where to get you

    If you want to reach all your clan members, you can always use the "message all clan members" function. It would be awfully annoying to get a message for every new thread if you are in several active private clans.

    I totally disagree with the concept of clan forums.

    For exactly the same reasons I disagreed with whatever I was disagreeing with the last time.
