Title: wtf is the council for?


damon - March 17, 2009 10:14 PM (GMT)
Star's promotion made me think... whats the council about? I remember when it was FIRST set up, the council as a whole would have powers that a leader would.. but it seems now the council has the power to have red names and a cool new user tag. Other then that.... i mean... they are suppose to b able to make decisions and even accept members and stuff without always using leader consent...

anyways any1 wanna tell me what council does?

To be honest, i have a general idea of what i do, help clan members, inter clan relations etc, but i have no idea what sort of power i have, or what i'm allowed to do really.

Ya i agree, i think the council should be doing more stuff, but it seems that they don't know what they are suppose to do, i think they should be informed

Well. I think I know what to do, even though I've only been a council member for less then a week, but I visit other clan sites and I build relations with them so we might possibly have more allied/clan events and maybe make future allies.

Also I think council is supposed to be somewhat like the "face" of AL. When Lamb or Golden aren't on, we are next in line and we show other members what it means to be in AL. We give advice, discipline others, and overall just make AL an overall good place to be.

If you think we should be doing something else, I'm all ears, as I don't know what I'm fully supposed to be doing besides what I already am. (Contests, modding forums, modding cc, speaking with other clans and whatnot)

And I was your little helper, but now they seem to be my responsibility and now that I have helpers of my own, I hope to pass it on to someone someday. ;)

all it really is, is a title

When there is an issue that does not require decisive action but is important to the long term of the clan, it is brought before the council.

Some issues:

Putting Starwolf on the council (yes this was discussed with current councilmembers :o)
Banning people (e.g. Scor34 for reporting clanmates, Matt the Don for some epic flaming)
When Golden and I are going out of town
Also various issues the councilmembers find to need addressing.

What power do we have though? Can we kick? Can we warn? Can we accept people into the clan? Can we arrange mini-wars? What can we do?

we can kick and warn i asked lamb and he said we cant accept new members :/ (i dont see why not) and no we cant make wars because i did once (with sc cause im a total idiot) and got yelled at by lamb and golden :( sooooo thats what we get to do... and we get admin cp that we dont even get a reason to use so yeah. Overall im proud to be a council member it shows that the leaders have trust in you and respect your actions. thats all i see in it basically.

I know that when I was in council, I'll have to be honest, I was the only one who really used my powers of the almighty ACP. I accepted people, made forums to help clutter the mess, closed topics, deleted old topics, etc.

damon - March 18, 2009 10:55 PM (GMT)
i can delete a topic.. big deal... and we are talkin other then forum based

Lamb Bug - March 18, 2009 10:55 PM (GMT)
Council can kick in CC and challenge in wars.

Kerkennah - March 18, 2009 11:26 PM (GMT)
i think council should be allowed to accept people into the clan and add them to the runehead

Lamb, Golden, High Council, feel free to edit this as needed. What I wrote is pretty much what I think you guys do and how the clan is managed.

i asked lamb if i could accept once and he said actually no but necro did it all the time. (that means your a rebel :D)

I think council/seniors should be able to update the runehead, it takes forever for it to get updated.

This I do think we need to do because this is probably our biggest problem!

In admin CP you can manage validating users..

We were told a few months back, I think in your absence, for council to not validate members and leave that to Lamb and Golden. I don't know if we can now, but we'll find out soon. :S

Golden arm42 - March 19, 2009 11:51 AM (GMT)
This is what I think the council does a great job of doing.

Advising the leaders
Dealing with personnel decisions, as was said
Acting as the face of AL to other clans (for instance, Star's presence in LTH)
Act to open/close/delete topics as Necro said
You guys CAN warn/kick; don't hesitate to if someone's out of line
Change someone's member group from member to elite skiller and so on

You guys can get short-prep fun wars with any clan other than Sacred Champions if you'd like but that's more of Damon's arena

However, please don't validate people if we're around. We do, as I said somewhere else, a background check of validating accounts. This helps prevent spies from getting on the forums (for instance, Matt the Don, Orichocos, and The Bob, if you remember him, all tried to register additional accounts). We check validating at least three or four times a day and people don't have to wait too long, but it's better safe than sorry when it comes to accounts. :)

whats with not wanting to fight sc ever? if you hate them so much lets kick their [BEEP], and im not sure of their stats so if they out lvl us, we should have a 10v10.
