After a long absence from the wonderful world of TipIt clan discussion, its come to my attention that in all the top lists, everyone still takes into consideration the whole clan world. Although theirs no problem with that, It seems that with about 80% of the users of the clan discussion section of these forums being from small - mid sized clans, why not just rank "TipIt" clans. Obviously their are many possible problems with this, but all easily avoidable. Back in the days of the almighty salscd run by the lord and savior Blade Viper, although many people from the larger clan world used SalsCD, most of the rankings were done based on "Sals" clans. I'm not saying that theirs certain qualifiers to be a tipit clan, but rather that the active clans as a whole that use these forums can get an accurate listing of their status among their peers here on tipit, and people from larger clans can give input on how said clans are doing, and hopefully give unbiased opinions. All and all it would hopefully build a more competitive community, although this could create beef, it also creates more competition and more drive for clans to succeed. Note that this post was created with the understand that their is a twr listing and some people do only rank certain clans, also note that its 3am and I have the downs. Also with the understanding that making a basis for "tipit" clans is nearly impossible unless the posters in the community pick up on it and use it as a source of competition. Sum it up for yourself and answer these elite questions that took many moons to create.
Do you think Tipit currently creates a competitive atmosphere between clans, and produces solid rivalries?
Do you think ranking only certain clans in ranking lists, in order to make things more competitive would benefit or hurt?
What type of impovements do you see necessary to build a more competitive community, or do you already find it competitive?
