Someones already asked this and Hina said there is no reason to be in more clubs then the
number allowed because you cant keep up with a bunch of clubs.

i disagree i think more clubs should be combined and there are too many clubs, kupika
would be better if there were only one or two clubs per category or topic, but no eveyrone
wants to be an owner of their own club so...

we get millions of clubs with poor participation

the solution would probalby be to make clubs available but without an owner per se,
(instantly joinable) and give everyone mod powers in themand let the community control it,
with trails for any editing there for people to see.

And here I'm disagreeing with the previous statement. More clubs? Are you joking? There
are already numerous amounts of useless clubs cluttering up Kupika as it is. I'm surprised
the staff hasn't deleted all those clubs already. There should be a limit to the amount of
time a club is inactive before it's deleted. I'd also like to ask, what makes a club
having one leader any better than a club having everyone as a leader? There would be too
many complications if that were the case. Although, the idea of being able to instantly
join a club is not bad. I've yet to join a club simply because the leader is inactive and
does not accept me into the group. The idea in itself would greatly increase activity in
clubs, I think anyway.

Well that is just how I see it.

intensepleasure, perhaps my post was misunderstood.

im not advocating for more clubs but fewer. i also think that inactive clubs should be
deleted, i think that clubs who's owner deletes their account should be deleted (because
that is just a ridiculous situation! especially now that Hina took my suggestion and
created a way to transfer club ownership to someone).

when you think about it, all Kupika clubs really are, are a "forum" or bulletin-board just
like has been around since the Net began practically. their only REAL feature are regular
ol forum/bulletin-board Discussion threads were someone posts a TOPIC and others post
comments on that topic creating a thread, (in addition to the club description page),
otherwise they are just little bullentin boards that are "packaged" in a way where all
that you would normally see and do with a bullentin board (see the members, topics, etc.)
is just arranged in a certain way.

The fact that Hina calls these Clubs is just a way of designating what they are and giving
a bit more "virtual liveliness" to them, but the reality is they are only small bulletin
boards designated by the creators to address specific topics or areas.  A club on the
Jonas Brothers is just a small forum/bb on the jonas brothers nothing more. And of course
like Kupika.net or any other forum there is the added element where teh creator can
designate to allow guest posting or make a person join the bulletin board (club) first to
post or comment.

If you think about it in terms like that then you understand that what im saying is that
instead of allowing individuals to create a million clubs and have all of these useless
clubs on kupika.

Hina could have just created it so that there are a LIMITED number of such clubs/bulletin
boards, at least with respect to the major categories. I bet there could be about 30
categories/clubs that would cover every major category: MuSIC, WRITING, ANIME/MANGA,
MATURE, etc

Everyone should be free to post on these like a bulletin board (like in Knet) and like you
can do in clubs that have Guest Posting enabled, only they should be able to create topics
too.

There would be no need for an "owner" or join approvals, and the community itself would
through public censure and group peer pressure do its best to enforce standards and insure
that posts made to these clubs were appropriate to the topic.  PERHAPS, a few people in
each club could be empowered with moderator power to actually delete off-topic posts (like
in K.net) but i dont really think that is necessary as those off topic could just be
ignored by everyone.

the system could be set-up so that topics that didnt have any activity for a certain
period (like 3 months) were automaticaly deleted (if thats not too difficult to do) or
such discussion threads could be periodically culled.

.......

NOW, this would allow everyone to "join" that is to comment on as many of the official
clubs/discussions as they want, and without "joining" so the club limit wouldnt be an
issue anymore.

This would drastically address the problems of having 10 clubs dedicated to naruto or the
jb or twilight etc.

I would continue and prefer if each person got to create up to 3 clubs/bulletin boards of
their own where they could make the membership exclusive and make the contents private and
I think that would continue to serve those needs which are useful for "exclusive" clubs
like clubs of mature-material, gender-exclusive clubs, gossip clubs, or such small
discussion boards/clubs where the person only wants their friends to be members and
associate with them on it. 

(But note that such personal Clubs should only have the option of being CLOSED/private and
couldnt be an open club....otherwise if someone wanted to create their own open club on
Naruto for example, or Role Playing for example, they would have to just use one of the
Official Clubs that im talking about. People could  make their own private club on that
topic, but if others see there is an open club already on that topic then the club creator
wont get many members and that would be a or should be an incentive NOT to create a
personal club, especially on  a general topic that is already being covered by the
official clubs)

........

so i hope this better explains what i meant to say would be a good solution to the problem
about too many clubs on kupika.

Why can't Hina just delete clubs who Have members that never participate?

I have ALL of the clubs filled,
and I can't keep up with them.
I'm on at least twice a day trying to keep up.
So I disagree, Don't add more clubs, just pick the ones you LIKE.
