    Is creating a clan representing Hive a good idea or not? Why?


    It doesn't have to be a super active, highly organized group. This could be a way to get the online playerbase to be directed to Hive, therefore having more players to support resources (mainly maps). Testing maps would also be something we can do. And of course, it's a bit o' fun playing casually and having arranged games maybe with other clans. (Hi BotR, I see you posted a thread here :D)

    A couple other questions would be:
    What server should we establish ourselves on? Europe seems to be where most Hive users and players currently use as their main realm.

    Should we have multiple branches? (e.g. Clan Hive on Europe and Clan THW on US east)

    Please vote and comment!

    Also note that non-battle.net players could play with the clan at times with ent connect as stated in the "How to Host, Where to Play" sticky.

    That's a great idea! But I won't be able to join since I'm already in a clan.

    Well. If you suck I'll have to drop the hammer on all of you and use every evil spin doctor move in the book to convince the world that you never actually existed.

    :^)
     
  7. One could always use more lackeys for testing.

    Yes. Because Hive is the biggest wc3 mod site. We should have our clan. And if really suck at it -- we can always use the "oh I'm mainly a modder, i don't play as much" excuse. But I'm sure we have some fanatics among the ranks as well. Every person on hive has its favorite map, and they will give a bloody competition in a clan vs clan on that map.

    Easily the most active WC3 site period.

    Anyhow, the things you listed here aren't problems at all. A clan's maximum is 100 members so it's not like we'd have to kick people who don't play group games. If it does reach a hundo, the most inactive player, which would probably one who hasn't logged in in months, would be kicked.

    --

    I'm leaning towards this scenerio:

    1. Realm: Battle.net Europe [Northrend]
    2. Public clan
    3. Arrange games every few weeks (or even days if people are hyper) on this sub-forum
    4. Engage in clan v clan matches

    We have 10 that say good idea and 3 that say no. Seems like a good idea so we're going with it.

    All that's needed are 10 people to be in the channel at the same time to start the clan.

    Who's in? I'll of course gather other people via VMs and such :)

    When: December 12, Saturday, 5PM GMT / 17 GMT
    Where: Battle.net Northrend: Channel: Hive

    Too troublesome to keep track of the time. There is a reason one usually use CET. (GMT 0)

    Or PDT.

    Huzzah!

    Anyway, it'd be great if people posted if they were coming. Inviting others would also be awesome.

    If we create an official Hive clan, we will create the following:

    Clan name: Hive Workshop
    Clan abbreviation: Hive

    We should probably make a news post about this, and arrange an official date. Because, like you stated yourself, we need atleast 10 members to start the clan. Also, if we start a clan, Ralle has to be the Chieftain ;)

    Planned and planned!

    I was planning to suggest a notice today but I agree that a news post would be better.

    It's super easy to get 10 people. If not enough shows up, which I highly doubt, I can just call some friends over.

    A Chieftain will have to log in every 28 days to keep the clan a float. For the first seven days, the Chieftain is only one who has the powers of recruiting, promote, and post messages of the day (notices). Basically Ralle would have to be active for the first seven days and check in every now and then - even always better when a chieftain is active. If not Ralle, I assumed I'd be leading it since I have the knowledge about clans and other battle.net communities :D

    You can also check in ML for posts about Clan Hive.

    Thanks for the link. I couldn't remember that part about the clan cheiftain. I guess making me and Ralle shaman would suffice and you the cheiftain ;)

    So we start on this date?
