The main reason in my opinion is because of RSC, but now we've improved majorly, such as double posts/topics/users from 2 years ago to last year and we've been improving since then. More top Clans joining TWR and such.

Tip.It was once the leading fansite for clanning/warring - no contest. However, the moderators (and I'd say the staff as a whole) at the time were terribly strict, and several disputes between TIF admins/moderators and the clan community led to the Clan and PvP Boards being shut down for quite awhile. The clan community then flocked to Zybez (a fledgling site back then), as I understand it, since the RSC staff advertised a "hands-off" approach to moderation in addition to a relaxed censor when they saw that Tip.It had closed its door to clans. There's really no doubt about it; RSC's rise in the clan world was a direct result of Tip.It's failures.

I'm glad to say that this was years and years ago, though, and that the Tip.It staff are marvelous now (most of the past staff have long since moved on). I'm happy to see that the Clan Boards here are thriving once more. :)

i dont see tip it going down tbh there has been more clans posting in here but not of that big impact as Top 10 but we still have alot posting in here daily
there has been more activity than before and well most clans like to post on RSC since it makes a bigger impact than it does in here on tip it

Edit: stop bumping old topics..even thought it brings you back memories it just makes new topics sink down and thats what we dont want :)

Yup, tip.it used to be the home of the clan world. All the top 10 clans used to post here. Shame that RSC took that role over. Now it seems like there's only a couple of top 20 clans, and the rest are just TWR.

Hardly, let me give you a history lesson.

From 2001 to l early to mid 2004 tip.it was the mecca and absolute pinnacle of the clan world. No other fansite really held a candle. Mid 2004 came and lots of changes came about and the site got alot stricter. At the time, the staff had clan mods, but they could not control the section, and generally the clan / PK sections were anarchy. The Administration of that era pissed themselves in fear and started to crack down and hand out ban's like MMG handed out millions with the boot update. Tons of top clan people were banned, From the top clans to the bottom, myself included in that lot. Tip.it eventually locked the clan boards for 2 weeks for a "timeout" and everyone said "Screw this" and left. Lots of people went to either RSC or Rsnewera - a site ran by pepsi24.

Tip.it's staff eventually changed, and became focused on providing a community focused on providing a quality environment for the users. The Non-PvP aspects of the forum begin to pick back up.

Recently in early 2008 efforts were made in Late 2007/early 2008 to rebuild the clan section, a focus group was formed called the clan improvement council and brainstorming began.

2 years later, Here we are. I'm proud of the Clan Staff we have today and feel they do a superior job. It's an absolute pleasure to work with professional individuals who want nothing more than to see our clan section improve. I feel like all of our clan staff is focused on improvement. Now some people may disagree with me, but i will always take time out to investigate any claims of unfairness or biased moderation. and be more than welcome to take any negative feedback you may have (PM it please if it's about an individual)

We have fought an uphill battle for 2 years, and will continue to do so, and are always open to constructive criticism or new ideas.


So sorry sir, But I do believe you are wrong in the historical aspect of what happened :)

It'd be nice to see Das around more :>

Anywayz others have answered, although I don't mind being "2nd" rate or w/e to RSC. RSC is more of Post count + Registration Date + Clan ur in + how well you can play into the popular propaganda trends otherwise you're posts are ignored/not important.

Pretty obvious; changes during years made Zybez more interesting for clans (and Das taking less part in the Clan World) is (/are) the main reason(s) for it, strange you come up with it now.

Would be highly appreciated if TIF Clan section would be given more action of the Top 20 clans. :)

What happened was the past which we've learned from. Now there's a strong uphill battle going on to bring that back again.

DI boycotted Tip.it due to the moderators at the time. It's never been the same.

+ how hard you look for attention.

Community here is better and I haven't really noticed any unfair modding (which is meant to be a compliment but probably isn't coming off as one).

I remember that several clan officials were mass-banned off the site for causing trouble. The moderation on these boards was very different back in the day.

well considering i wasnt around back then i cant really say but from what i just read above, it is summed up there.

bumping old topics = fail too

oh and if you had noticed look at the wars & runins section where a few more top clans are posting their fights (even if it isnt the officials someone still does it)

Df, Rsd, CR & more have been so its looking on the rise again ;)

Many of the top clans back then no longer have their old power. Sabres, Jagz, Exer, and 'The' are all fractions of their former selves. BK, Gladz, and TRWF are in decent shape these days. As for RSD, they're one of today's most dominant clans. Still, the size of the wars are nowhere as massive as they used to be; in general, the clan world shrunk but has become more organized.

Clans like DS, ST, MK, Fear, RR, and even DI have all closed. Also, junior clans are a thing of the past. I do have to say, though, DI was the most stable top clan throughout their lifetime.

I need to work on maintaining a more public presence. i'll try to do that.

Good to hear.

Tip.It was once the leading fansite for clanning/warring - no contest. However, the moderators (and I'd say the staff as a whole) at the time were terribly strict, and several disputes between TIF admins/moderators and the clan community led to the Clan and PvP Boards being shut down for quite awhile.

You forgot that after TIF closed the clan section in an attempt to punish, everyone went to DI boards. Then they migrated to RSC.


It was foolish of the staff at the time to think temporarily closing the clan section would garner no consequences, but we all learn.

I prefer it like this to be honest, the way it is now.

Yea we have clan beef and trolls on every topic especially, just like RSC.

However Tip.It's level of it is Definetly on a MUCH Smaller Scale.

I use both RSC and Tip.It and it's nice to not have a trend of the "top 10-20" and "3rd party posting" here on Tip.It.

Tip.It Forums are alot more Sound and Peaceful then RSC, which is a +.

I've even seen clans switch from RSC and start to post on Tip.It Forums more or less so cause of it too.

Sure our activity isn't the Best compared to other Sites - but that's just something to Encourage in the Future.
