IMHO, you must not beg as a owner but demand. Set up reasonable rules, publish them and enforce them.
Probably, that's not what you want, being a polite and considerate guy from what I see here. But it's the way it works.
You can't expect the same loyalty than in a RL club - players come and go and do mouseclicks in an online game without much thought. Many members have been active only for a few days, up to two weeks and turn away then. Others decide against the game after years and leave it without second thought of their friends or the CC.
I want consensus in the club, but how to achieve it without many responses? I have soon come to making rules of my own, e.g. who may enter (Pro+ now), who has to leave (longer inactivity, dayfly members), and who gets access to Super Passes (tier, activity, average).
Me thinks that my actions are reasonable, and from time to time I explain them in the CC forum and I consider any objections there, but they are rare.
