Confederate-themed Clan: 4/3/2016 05:17:13

Hey, does anyone want to help me start a Confederate-themed clan? I have a few ideas but if I'm going to start a clan I'd like to start with a few people already on board to make it more successful.

So here are a few of my ideas:

-Icon can be the Virginia Battle Flag

-We can have branches like the Confederate Army, Navy, and Marine Corps and ranks for each branch

-Only true American Southerners will be allowed to join

-ABSOLUTELY NO SJWS

Message me if you want to help start a clan like this or have any other ideas!

1. You might attract more than just "true American Southerners" to your clan. Will you really turn them away? As long as you have their buy-in with whatever your clan philosophy is going to be, take them in.

2. To some people, the confederate south represents states rights, fierce independence, and an indomitable spirit. To others, the confederate south represents racism and slavery. Screen potential members very carefully to make sure you're not accidently attracting racists. Once that stink is on your clan, it can be very difficult to clean it up again. Look to the German themed clans to see how hard it is to move past that once those accusations are in the air.

(Just my two cents)

Hell yes, for the glory of Thomas Jackson and the Army of the Potomac, somebody give this man the money required for this so I can sent an alt to it ASAP!


I am a proud Virginian, so you will get no racism from a southern gent as myself.

Don't forget the Confederate dollar's inflation.

Good luck finding 14 billion of those to buy a clan with.

@Dr Stupid - I would argue that if he only wants "true American Southerners", that screening potential members like you suggested is the only way he can recruit people who might not try to tear into him. :p

The Spanish imperial flag (origin of confederate flag) is already in Clan Hispano: https://www.warlight.net/Clans/?ID=92

I mean, I'm a Northerner through and through. I'd find it an interesting experiment. If I was not in a clan, I'd join.

As long as you're not making it for the purpose of racism, I see no problem.

I guess the clan's purpose is indeed racism.

its indeed a bit ironic that this guy is making a clan considering his previous statements. IF the nature of the clan is as it seems, then it becomes another handy cheatsheet for blacklists :p

We're talking about a forum troll here. I don't know why people find it necessary to explain why it's a bad idea when that's something you could take for granted at this stage.

A Confederate-themed clan in and of itself isn't racist. I like the idea

Nothing against the idea of the clan, sounds good.... I have real problems with it being exclusive though.
Perhaps Castle would explain the reasoning behind that?

My bad. I didn't realize that Castle was a known troll. I thought it was a serious inquiry. My apologies to all for feeding the troll.

You SJWs are merely an enemy army on the other side of the battlefield to us true Southerners. We do not play petty word games and we do not partake in attacking our enemies on the WarLight forum, that would be cowardice.

Vitriol, Teamguns, I will see y'all on the battlefield. The Hysterical Koala, if you blacklisted me so you must be a coward, otherwise I would challenge you to a fight of men. And I mean a distinguished fight between gentlemen not any of this effeminate forum melodrama bullcrap!

You're just another Yankee infantry division to me and I'll get my boys and route you out!

Yeah the expected comments from the expected people on this site.

I don't think having a 'only American southerner' is racist, different clans are built to attract specific types of players the owner wants. Most clans have some basic skill requirements, that doesn't make them all elitist.

Besides, a clan is a private commodity, the owner can choose to accept or decline whoever he wants, I think its reasonable.

But then again, any rhetoric that doesn't lean far left is deemed racist or bigotry these days.
