Clan Overview

 

Clan Discussions Forum Rules

Along with the Tip.It Forum Rules, we ask that you are aware of these forum-specific rules:

  • All links to clan sites or recruitment of any form should be posted in the Clan Recruitment Centre.
  • Censor evasion, extreme flaming, harassment or pointless vulgarity are all forbidden.
  • Deliberately going off-topic to excessively flame another user/Clan is not tolerated.

Moderator Responsibilities

Moderators have to follow their own strict code when moderating the Tip.It forums. Part of which includes:

  • Distancing themselves from clans they are in, clans they have been in or clan-leaders they know personally. A moderator may not intervene in a flame-war where there is a conflict-of-interest.
  • Detaching themselves from their own clans, meaning they cannot create recruitment topics to advertise their own clans; they cannot reply to a topic in the Looking for a clan forum, advertising their clan; they cannot clean their own recruitment topic; and they cannot bump their clan's recruitment topic.
  • An anti-locking policy to flame-wars, when locking a topic is seen as a punishment, a last resort only to be used when other methods of calming things have been tried.
  • A tolerant, diluted discipline procedure, where users are warned first informally, which if fails is followed by a formal warning, before further action is taken.
  • Ignoring personal attacks/complaints/flames and passing them on to a higher member of staff. Moderators cannot decide the fate of those who complained against them.

If at any point you feel a moderator has defied any of these rules, then PM our Clan Administrator immediately, who will investigate the accusation. All problems will be handled privately and swiftly.

Conclave Info

The Conclave forum is a place for clan-leaders and clan-officials. The moderation is lax, and the forum's rules allow for free discussion about the clan-world. Furthermore, all Clan-Officials who are added to the Conclave will be given a member-title ('Clan Official') to distinguish them on the TWR forum.

Requirements:

If you are a clan-leader and would like access to the Conclave for your clan, you must first meet the below requirements:

  • At least two officials with a TIF user account: every clan has one leader plus another one for every 25 members. The maximum number of officials cannot exceed five.
  • At least twenty-five members on your RuneHead memberlist.

If you meet these requirements, PM Nobody with the following information:

Clan type (skilling/combat/country?):

Clan Name:

~
RSN:

MSN:

And if you are a combat-clan, we strongly recommend that you join the Tip.It War Rankings. More info can be found here.

Private Forum Hosting

Tip.It offers free private forums for clans. Only those whom the Clan Leader invites may view the forum and add up to two moderators.

Two leaders or high ranked officials will have full moderator powers, allowing them to lock posts, create stickies, etc. Administrators will only moderate the forum if asked.

To request a private board, contact an Administrator with the following information:

  • Clan name
  • The usernames of a maximum of two leaders or high ranking officials who will be controlling the boards (they will be given moderator powers). These two people must be registered on the Tip.it forums.
  • The usernames of at least five other clan members who are also registered on Tip.it.
