Our clan commander has been AWOL for over two months.  No explanation.  :(

 

I asked blindfold what to do about this over a week ago.  No response.  :(

 

Anybody know what can be done in this situation?  :unsure:

Might be able to send him a message PM which usually will email them a notice. Command can be transferred, but only by the current Commander.

I did PM blindfold two weeks ago about this.  He/she finally responded a few minutes ago providing a link to information that is absolutely useless in this situation.

Years ago most of the forumites learned you can either cry or laugh at the slapstick buffoonery these twin entities present to us, it's clientele, time after time.

 

Hence their most stable and successful, yet misunderstood property, WowpFE2PAN continues it's long legacy of entertaining the maligned.

there is another way to do this you could start a new clan

with all the old members ... but that's a Monster headache 

make a new name every one likes is the 1st problem

start and get every one on board is the 2 problem

if you try that  trust me i know i seen it happen in wot with one

of the people i know there ....

but i would try to email not just pm the commander and see

if he well turn it over to one of   your lot to run the clan 

but more over i hope he is ok  most commanders i know

do not just vanish they talk before they leave a clan or check out of a game

just so every one else can still play ...

i hope it work out for your clan

The commander or creator of the clan are the only ones who can make changes.

 

Just because they are AOL from game or forum, an email might well get to them.

Sounds like you are SOL then. Even if WG can do anything, I am pretty sure they won't.

Only other option sounds like what sandtiger posted.

We had a similar problem at JACS, we ( the players )  wanted an active clan so at any given time we could fly with a good wingman.

He was more interested in Clan rating, & wanted to keep inactive high CR players.

We started up RAW with the understanding that " an active clan "  takes the top spot over " Clan Ratings " on the scoreboard.

We still hold true to that policy being an active clan with active members, will always prove to be a much better clan, with pilots who enjoy flying. :coin:

This in turn which will always equal satisfied pilots & happy members.:great:

Having an active clan is nice and should be primary IMO, without restrictions other than to have fun and be courteous to others.

That is in fact why RBL was created in December, 1999.

Other things to consider is maintaining the clan. Emblem, coms, message board, web site....not all of which comes free.

While RBL is certainly not the most active clan in WoWP, most of the members here are from the original star wars games that we were created for. Some have been RBL since Jr. High. Most are more active in other games including Wot and WoS. And we do all keep in contact via our website and discord.

 

I started out WoWP with Aces, then GW. After the competition and politics made me choose to leave, I decided to start in tribute, RBL within WoWP. I ponied up for the WoWp end and we have always had the website and coms that are still maintained by the founder and RL friend and Bro.

 

Other than the reasons mentioned, there is no advantage to being in or having a clan in this game. With that said, anyone is more than welcome to RBL, I have yet to turn anyone away or had any reason to remove any who have joined. After all, we are just a bunch of outcasts and refugees, much like USA and Australia  :honoring:

 

Wish ya luck CapU.

Yeah PZB is in a similar boat, though our commander has been AWOL for years, WG basically said there's nothing they can do, and I get why, if they start arbitrarily reassigning Clan command there's all kind of shenanigans that could happen

Not true.  I still have an AOL email address.  Although, if someone sends me an email, AOL forwards it to me using Parcel Post, so it takes me at least a week to respond.

well, it was a good troll!    i've heard Wonderwall, but not a fav

 

sorry, not even in the same ballpark as All Around the World    it's a ridiculous repetitive song, but it has amazingly hypnotic brickwalling

 

[unless i missed the meaning of the Wonderwall troll or something, i've never really listened closely to the lyrics]
