Re: The Newbie Guide to the Zelda Universe (And how to join a clan!)
:: Clans ::
What is a clan?
, there are three clans:
(Wisdom). Each clan has their own secret clan forum. The atmosphere inside the clans is more relaxed and casual than the rest of the forums, and forum games are allowed. Each clan is comprised of all kinds of different people with different kinds of personalities. As such, don't expect everyone within your determined clan to simply be comprised of power-hungry, courageous, or wise people.
*Please also note that the clans are not moderated the same as the rest of the boards. They are considered private boards and thus are home to more [im]matture subject matter. If you are easily offended by profanity, vulgarity, or stupidity then joining a clan may not be for you.*
Joining a Clan
First of all, you must
be a member at
for one month
and also have fifty (50) non-spam posts.
This is to make sure you just donít get into a clan and then go inactive. Second, you send a request by PM to
about taking the
. Once youíve taken the test, you will be placed in one of the clans. Only send the request to one moderator at a time.
FAQs About Clans
I want to be in the X Clan. Is there a specific moderator I should send the test to so I'm sure to get into the clan I want?
No, there is not. A moderator handing out the test could be in a specific clan, but that does not mean they'll place you there automatically.
I donít know much about Zelda, can I still take the clan test?
Yes, the clan test has little to do about Zelda. There is one Zelda-related question, but even then you really don't have to know anything about Zelda to answer it. Improvise if stuck.
Can I fail the test?
Yes. If your clan test grader finds your answers a bit lacking, he/she will ask you to answer the test again and point out what you did wrong. If the second attempt is still unsatisfactory, you must wait a month before requesting the test again.
What happens if I get an even score between two clans?
At the test-giver's discretion, you may be asked which of the two clans you prefer, or your test answers may be shared with the other test-givers to get a second opinion. However, once a decision is made, it is final.
Iíve asked for the test/sent in my answers but havenít received an answer! Why?
Most likely, the person you sent the request to hasnít seen it yet. Have patience
. If you donít get an answer in a week, you can send a new PM asking why.
Iíve sent in my request for a test/answers, and now it's been weeks without a reply. The mod isn't answering to my PM's! Whatever shall I do?
First of all, send your answers to another moderator. Then, send a PM to the first moderator, telling them (politely!) that you grew tired of waiting and turned to someone else. Keep in mind that this is something done when you've waited for a long time, and not if it's only been a day since you sent in your answers the first time.
Alright, so I got the test, now what?
Now you answer the questions according to your own beliefs. Follow the directions given to you on the test, and answer the questions as openly and as truthfully as possible, so that the grader can get a good idea of where to place you.
Right, I've answered the questions. Now what?
Well, you send the questions to the person who gave you the test. Then you sit back and wait until you get a reply back with information on what clan you got into. By the same time, you'll gain your clan banner and access to your clan's secret forum.
Iím in a clan, but I canít see the Clan Board!
Again, have patience. After your test got corrected and you got informed on your clan, the results were forwarded to a supermoderator or an admin who will put you in your clan. Sometimes you get there instantly, while at other times the S.mod/Admin have a life and can't put you in a clan right away. Patience is key. If you have been able to see the Clan Board, but now can't, contact an admin and ask for help.
I don't like this clan anymore, can I swap to another?
Before even considering a clan swap, we ask that you spend at least three months in your clan. In general, clan swapping is frowned upon by the mods, and you need a very good reason for wanting to swap, and should it come to pass, clan swapping will be entirely to the discretion of the moderators. Naturally, swapping more than once will be much harder than your initial swap and is rarely permitted - so be sure to think things through before coming to a decision. Reasons like "
my friend is in another clan so I would like to join them
" aren't good enough. Try consulting with your respective clan mod and ask advice about fitting in with your new clan. Again, you can be denied a clan swap for whatever reason, as it is up to the discretion of the moderating team.
request a clan swap from more than one moderator, otherwise, you will be denied a clan swap altogether.
Fine, then I don't want to be in a clan at all!
It is possible to be removed from the clans all together, all you need to do is send a moderator a PM asking for it. However, it'd work just like if you swapped clans, and you would not be able to take the test to join another clan. It is not a loophole! Also, if you're tired of your clan, you could just stop visiting it, instead of asking for removal.
i lurve vynrah lololol
