And let us not forget B3N, Kyron, and Flame, that I suggested this long ago but never posted due to the disapproval of SF and Mike. This idea is currently popular due to the League's major slow (DT has seem to forget about it). Just thought Id recall these factors. Anyhow, I suggest that we respark the League and establish Clan Captains based off of the 8 Gym Leaders, except with a NEW Tournament hosted by another Daily Active Mod such as Mike. TBH I never wanted DT to run the League as I forsaw the outcome.
Anyhow, I agree of a DB Clan. However, I can see the separate Clans idea developing into feuds. That is not a great idea. A DB Clan should include everyone, as we are all apart of the DB. Here is the System that Kyron and I developed long ago when we thought of it:
The DB Clan was going to be divided into Teams based off Tier, and the number of each member in a team would be based off the number of Pokemon in each tier. The minimum amount of Members are 3 and the Max 5. The collective Teams will make up the Clan as ONE whole. Note that as a C
*For example NU would have 5 Memberrs as the largest Tier and RU only 3 as the smallest.
Each Subdivisional Team will have its own Ranking System as also mentioned above. Similar to "Seats" of Band and Orchestra, the Member with
a.) Clearly displayed Superiority Knowledge, Experience, and Records
b.) Dedication (Activeness on the both the DB and respective simulator)
c.) Recomendations or Votes from Mod, Expert, Editor, or Normal users (a Mods Vote worth more than an Editors, an Editors worth more than an Experts, and so forth)
will be deemed Captain, the Leader of the Clan.
The Second, Third, [Fourth and Fifth] Seats will have to apply to the Captain and meet his designated conditions to become apart of the Team.
The Captain is, as said before, thr Leader. He or she is responsible for arranging Team Building sessions, Tutoring opportunities, etc. They must be active and should appoint the 2nd Seat to comand if they must be Inactive.
Note that each Team only Specializes in a Tier: it is not a restriction from others. An OU Team can still compeye in NU; they just SPECIALIZE in OU.
Each Team should NOT be divided from the other. The Teams are together a Clan, and shoupd still interact and operate as a whole. This system is just unique in in depth Ranking, in which to encourage Memebrs to get better.
And yes, you can also move up in Rank. You can challengr someone for their Seat.
This is how Kyron and I developed it. I personally Promote this idea.
