    If anyone wants to have their own official AVForums clan forum, please ask me (by PM). If you have enough members, I will set up a specific forum for your clan to use, with it's own password which only your clan members will know. That way, it will remain an official AVForums forum, but exclusively for the use of your clan members.
    It doesn't make sense to be setting up AVForums clan forums elsewhere. And unauthorised use of the AVForums name is not allowed, anyway.

    i think the rfom AVF clan is the main one with OGC almost a sub squad of that..call it the senior citizen section if you will...i dont think it need a specific "private" forum....more of a sub section in the games section..so it doesnt clutter up the main games section. As most have been added as buddies..i would suspect the AVF/OGC designate would transfer over to each game..ie..rfom/motorstorm etc..so i would suggest a section just entitled AVF clan?

    You can stay with them, the idea is instead of having the clan threads in here, each clan is set up with it's own private sub forum. It keeps this forum tidier and IMHO is easier for clan members to keep track of what's going on rather than trawl through one huge thread.

    i think its a good idea stuart as the avf/ogc clan has grown quite large now. It was me that set up the seperate forum for r:fom avf clan. I apologise for using the AVForums name as i thought it would be easier than cluttering up the threads here (it never took off anyway).
    But yes a seperate forum would be a good idea.

    I think its a good idea to have a sub-forum for people to discuss stuff to do with the clans. In my opinion a seperate forum isn't needed for all the different clans though, just one sub forum (password protected or not) where all discussions can be kept rather than being in the main "PS3 Games" section.

    Each thread in the sub forum could then be started with the initials of the clan it refers to so that posters know which threads are to do with their own clans.

    Just make a clans sub forum, with some mods (I am happy to volunteer and take up my mod mantle again, have time to scour posts at work now :p!)

    I agree no password and just use it for people to post about all clan related stuff. Most probably have a sticky describing the clans available etc. etc.

    lol on a side note just noticed I have been a member of these forums for 5 years now!! scary!!!

    is there now way we can keep it in here as a sub section of ps3 games...like ps3 games is already a sub section of ps3?

    one other thing..when we get given a "home" can someone move the clan threads into it?...is the new mods job?

    Yes it would be nice if it was still in the PS3 section wouldn't it. Maybe the 360 and PS3 need their own clan sub forums. One in Xbox gaming, one in Playstation gaming sections? Just an idea.

    I agree - would be nice to keep it within the PS3 forum.

    I agree as well.

    It would be useful to have a clans sub-forum for each format, otherwise the traffic could become too complicated.

    Or thinking about it, you could just split the AVF Clan forums into X-BOX, PS3.... not sure Wii has any clans.

    I don't think it is a good idea to mix the system crowds into one forum, it will create a lot of confusion.
