Can we (finally) get rid of the pointless passphrase(s) "required" for joining our clan in-game? They are barely even used and most people who recruit have started not even bothering to ask for them. I find that it probably makes the recruitment process for new clannies harder than it needs to be, and we all know that the clan could do with more active players.

For clarity, I'm referring to:

Support - I never used it. Though to be fair most people haven't as of late anyway. --LiquidTalk 22:23, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - Shouldn't be needed. Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 22:24, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - Any1 who doesn't play by the rules can easily get kicked. Meeeeerds msg 23:02, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Sure - Usually I just tell people that I recruit that we have one main rule, Don't be a dick (who thought I was gonna say "everybody fights"?). They say Okay, I invite. Degenret01 (talk)

Support the past few recruits I've put in didn't even know how quick chat worked, and just typed the message, for a newcomer this is pretty non-intuitive Clue Scrolls | Tumeken (talk) 23:43, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - I didn’t even do this so.... RuneMetrics icon.png Tyler JarretTalkLight animica.png 23:56, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Sort of Support - I use it since I like to be thorough but don't mind it being removed, or left as optional since it _is_ good to know the rules. Thoughts beyond that: could ask them to read the rules after they've joined if they haven't already or condense it to Degenret01's "don't be a d**k". As a suggestion, the phrases could be left in for the nostalgia if the passphrase policy itself is removed? Ouronum (talk) 01:32, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - I've invited plenty of people and never bothered with this. Talk to Kelsey 02:17, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - The rules are common sense Firestarter 15:14, 22 February 2019 (UTC) Support - While I am a fan of the passphrases I do agree that they really aren't needed and aren't enforced anyway. Superiosity the WikianQuick chat button.png : Sup bro 02:32, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - Not really needed & I always ask my invitees to read the clan rules anyway. Villar 22:13, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Support - it's an unnecessary barrier to inviting someone to the clan and makes us appear unwelcoming. Directing someone to read the rules/clan information is enough. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 06:55, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

Closed - The passphrase(s) will be removed. jayden 20:43, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
