Poseidó̱nas is not *the* clan leader. We are run by a council of members of which he is a rather recent voice (he was one of the clan founders, but had been absent for a while) on it. He has just taken the initiative of doing public general recruitment, as opposed to private recruitment that many of us have been doing.
He has manager rights? If yes, he's the leader. Alongside anyone with them. It's a simple formula. Having a "council" won't change; the real leaders are those who have manager rights. And them all can be called leaders anytime, anywhere.
And if he's the one doing public recruitment, he should be the example. I mean, when you want that hot chick next door to notice you, do you go out with good, clean clothes that meet her standards or do you just move on with a tanktop and ripped shorts?
It also strikes me as interesting, that instead of promoting your clans that you and Semicedevine seem to feel it necessary to attack another clan
I'm not attacking a clan (semice is, kek). I'm pointing out something that will hurt poseidonas' - and alongside it, Olympus' - public image. If you're adding a prerequisite, that's fine. If you're going to allow some fluctuation on it, that's fine. But if you tell someone to publicly announce those prerequisites without meeting them, you tend to not earn the trust of the reader. A newcomer that sees this thread will just skip it over if he notices that.
are your clans in such desperate straights that the only way you can promote them is to attempt to tear down others?
Neither me nor semice are leaders or have manager rights in our respective clans. Neither of us is trying to recruit people, specially on someone else's thread. I wanted to point out an important little detail, Semice wanted to troll around like he usually does. Think what you will, my goal was not to tear down Olympus, but give a small heads up.
If I were to, I'd be using clear sarcasm and wouldn't write defensively with things like "Okay, I know you said preferred", "to be fair" and "It feels kind of weird".
EDIT: That said, end the derail here. Go back to working on recruitment rather than extending a pointless discussion. This'll not lead either of us anywhere.
