Ok, so i see a few members make a clan recruitment topic, but see that it doesn't attract must attention. I hope this topic contains a few tips on how to make it more appealing to members and maybe get some more attention.

1. Make sure your clan name is appealing and easy to remember, but not taken.
While it may not seem like it, a name means a lot, so take time with it and think, instead of rushing in with it. Do not make it : a long clan name, something difficult or irritating to remember.
Just look at popular clans today, many with 4 or 5 letter clan names. OpTic, DRFT, FEAR, Instinct, all easy to remember. And please do check your clan name isn't taken, because it shows how much effort you have really put into your clan.

2. Be committed to your clan
When you want to start a clan it normally means you want a team to play with and have fun,but being in a clan needs commitment and work. You cannot be a half arsed person and think your clan will just start up and bloom. As the leader of the clan you need to be dedicated and put time into what you have started, effort is required for it to work, and you have to show that somehow.
Maybe have trials or a quick matcg with people who are interested in joining. Just something to show you aren't just blindly adding people for reduced effort.

3. Specify your clan type.
Are you making a clan for fun, competitive play, achievement boosting or whatever? The specify it when introducing your clan, that way you make sure that you are getting the members you want and they are getting something out of the clan.


Currently too tired to finish this off or improve it, but i hope this at least helps some of you new clan leaders start up. Will finish later.

Most clans that are here are not dedicated which is why they don't attract much attention.

Check the crimson ravens post for an example on how you should do your recruitment post.

Yes, this is what I keep telling clans that have lame recruitment threads, I was actually going to make a thread about it. It looks like you saved me the trouble. Thank you for uploading this so that people know how to do things correctly, it is nice to know that you care for this community.

there are a lot of clans with the same initials, like my clan had the same initials but completely different names. so I added an extra letter. I think you should keep that in mind as well.

Another thing people should consider is their recruitment message.
I have been in two clans and done most of the recruitment for both and the one thing I see alot of is a HUGEWALLOFTEXT.JPG

This puts people off. Just put the key points people should know, the rest they can be told once you have their attention.

How is "Kilo Team" not an easy name to remember?

Optimistic Nihilism could be a oxymoron, but who cares, we all die either way.
