Sub-forums, and full credit clans

Post by Cool Bingo on Fri May 21 2010, 11:58

The current exceptions for sub-forums are....

1. Has active members
2. Has runs that are successful
3. Has people commenting on their posts
4. Gets our attention
5. Has something Unique that others don't have in theirs

Full credit forum clans are separate than this and will be post when the time comes.

Here is the TTC Sub-Forum Requirements. Though it might help a little.

* A minimum of 500 posts and replies that follow site policies.
* A minimum of 25 active members.
o An active member is defined as a member that regularly participates in clan discussion and clan events.
* A regular and recent post history on your thread.
o If your clan has long periods of time with no posts, or has not been posted to in a month, it will not be considered for a subforum.
o Your clan must be a minimum of 3 months old to be considered.
* Your clan must be well-organized.
o Regular events and a set group of leaders is considered well-organized.
o An opening post of, "We will meet for events when we feel like it." and subsequent posts saying, "OK, I'm on right now." is considered poorly organized.
* Clan member refusals cannot be based on the member.
o Refusals based on a person are unacceptable. This includes, but is not limited to, a person's age, gender, race, religion, or simply because you don't like the person.
o An organized set of guidelines regarding what type of toon is allowed is ok. This can include things such as toon species, toon laff level, toon color (ie. The Black Cat's Path), twin toons, etc.
* We will not support any clans that include griefing as an activity

Thanks and this is Toontown Hall's

Considerations for subforum:
· Views and posts are considerable in amount and content
· Events: At least one regularly scheduled weekly event that is well attended
· Original poster is a member in good standing
· Original poster is considered the head Clan Leader and retains removal control over future CLs unless a resignation is submitted and they will elect which CL will replace them (in the event there is more than 1 besides themselves)


Subforum Clans
Once you are given a subforum, it will be housed in the clan area and allow for more organization. Here you can post multiple threads, stickies and manage your content and activities. You can also request an archive to move older threads that are no longer needed or completed events. You will be allowed to request a banner for your weekly event and have access to a clan forum used by staff and other Clan Leaders. At this stage your member status will be changed to Clan Leader and the color of your name will change. You can add additional Clan Leaders (maximum of 3 total) when you become a main forum clan.

The subforum is where you will organize and expand. A clan cannot be successful without a successful leader, which not only includes being present on the forum and assisting members but also attending the events. We do monitor clan and subforum activity and growth on an ongoing basis, but you are free to request a review for main clan status if you feel your clan has reached enough activity and participation to be promoted. This may be requested after a minimum of 30 days at the subforum level.


Main Forum Clans
Once your clan has expanded and is active enough to be moved from the subforum level, you will have a subforum created for you in the clan area. At this time, more changes and additions are available:
Add additional clan leaders (up to 3 total, after one month they can request edit abilities if they want them)
A private subforum for drafting threads for events, posting discussions with your other clan leaders or as you have need (only visible to your clan leaders and staff)
Custom graphics: tags, awards, avatars
A usergroup for members to join your clan via user cp which will also display your tag if you create one (tag - 105x20 GIF only and sent via PM to any active administrator)
Awards are allowed 4 per year for new additions and 1 per year for joint events with another clan (award - 50x68 JPEG or PNG and sent via PM to any active administrator).
Additional banners available for your events (24 hour notice required via the Banner Request thread)
Edit ability gives you the options to edit and move threads for the purpose of organization or editing another clan leader if needed. You are not allowed to edit or move posts made by a member. You can report the post and list the action needed or send a private message to a staff member for assistance.



Clan Closure and Clan Leader Removals
Clans can be closed upon request at the thread or subforum level by the original poster. For main forum clans where other Clan Leaders are involved, we recommend discussing the future of the clan with them. Other reasons for closure:

· Inactivity (2 months without an attended event)
· Clan Leader resignation (if there is only 1 leader and the clan is desired to stay active, staff will post for applications)
· Clan Leader discipline (more than one suspension will revert clan to next leader in order of appointment)
· Clan Leader inactivity for one month or longer if requested by other leader(s) or not attending their events


As the moderator status given with the Clan Leader designation makes it impossible to be ignored by members, Clan Leaders are held with higher expectations in regards to the forum rules. Violations of the rules may lead to removal of your status. Clan Leaders are prohibited from releasing any information that is not visible to regular members, especially to any site outside of Bla Bla Bla. This includes, but is not limited to, private messages, staff correspondence, and information found in private access areas. Normal procedure for violations will include a warning, suspension and/or removal as a Clan Leader up to a permanent ban. These issues will be reviewed on a case by case basis.


Conclusion
Clans require a lot of time and effort to be successful. It is a large responsibility and that should be a factor when you are deciding on its creation. You should expect to spend some time each day on the forum to manage questions, requests and updates and also plan on attending your events. Having a Clan Leader present at the event shows your dedication and desire for it to be successful. Members will notice your forum activity and your game activity and it is important that they know who to go to in the event of an issue. The staff of this site does not generally get involved with clan issues unless it is reported and/or requested or an issue visible to us. We are here to help and assist when necessary and your first point of contact should be the Clan Moderator. This person can assist you with any issue or refer it to a higher staff member as needed.
