Rules . Is not and has not ever been on my favorites list .
When I first started running my CC . A lot of players signed up fairly quickly . Started making tourneys and not getting much participation . Tried to communicate with members.
Found out there was no such thing . So I started posting messages on each players wall .Real polite stuff with pleases and thank you's . Not easy with , at that time , 80 members .
At least I knew then that at some point they would look on their wall and get mt messages . Just asking them if they would please participate in CC tourneys . Thank you..
Also a message explaining that the " email all members" does not work in our club and if they could please respond . We could start a member / owner communication .
Still nothing . Next couple of messages explained that I would like them to play at least one tourney a month .
Still nothing . Then I messaged that it is required to play at least once a month .
Nothing . So . If you don't participate you will regretfully be removed from the club .
Finally I deleted 53 members all at once . Leaving 15 original members and 10 other good ones that joined a couple months later .
Another member and myself started a recruiting spree . This time screening a little more carefully explaining that participation was mandatory . Much like most other CC's I'm sure . I waited until i had seen some participation before I made them members .
We are back up to about 65 members now . Which for me is plenty . Especially if they are good participating , communicative , semi accessable , non complaining members.
Which they are not .
Which finally brings me to my topic lol . Sorry about the pain . not .
I'm thinking that a couple rules might need to be implemented .
Because I could care less about CC points or XP points . I just want good participating , communicative , semi accessable , non complaining members.
That respect an owner enough to respond to a small request .
A rule that disallows ignoring the owner . That's what it boils down to . I'm not trying to pry into their lives or be their buddies .
But I put a lot of time into trying to make it a good CC experience for them . Hell I don't have any time to play . My consecutive days played resets to ZERO a couple times a week anymore .
Disrespecting the owner by not participating in CC events . And not responding to inquiries . Will now result in consideration for immediate removal .
Rules to live live by in my CC LOL .
Thanx for letting me vent Paul
