Clans are groups with a "leader" and a limited membership, usual made of members with a common interest. It a way for all those who keep complaining that they don't have a chat room to be satisfied since usually clans will have a private forum (and occasionally chat) for clan members to discuss privately what is happening on the regular board or whatever additional common intrest they have.Originally Posted by Agent Orange 216
Usually the formation of new clans have to be approved by an admin. After that they are self moderated on their own boards. The clan leader has the power to decide who stays and who goes but if there are complaints against him/her the mod or admins can remove them from their position and revoke their membership.
It's probably alot of work to set up but once they're in place they keep themselves going...or die a miserable death.
