Era is looking for a Gang Admin!

Hey Era players old and new,

With the recent retirement of swift from the team, the position of Gang Admin is open. We're currently looking for motivated individuals full of new ideas for the improvement of gangs.
It doesn't matter if you last logged on yesterday or last year, if you're willing to put in the time and effort to improve Era, you should consider applying. If you have any questions about the job, feel free to send me an in-game mail or a PM next time you log on.

For more details and the (brief) application, just log on and say :apps


Good luck!
-Management

I'm also applying, I also hope whoever gets it will work with some of the notorious gang players to discuss a few ideas/improvements.

My only hope is that whoever gets the job doesn't add a hard member limit to gangs.

I honestly would be so happy if I could log on and not be removed from a gang because of the member limit. And then in order to add me back somebody else gets removed and they're bound to be annoyed when they log back on as well.

Im not sure what the current stats are, but I estimate based on the current player count and this old thread from 2011 that Era probably has close to 2500 unique logins per 30 days at the moment.

If you had 10 active gangs with a 15 member limit, thats only 6% of those 2500 players.
Even if you only count players with above 100 hours (assuming the number is still similar) that's only 16% of players, leaving 84% of the server with no real gang (EP doesn't really count unless you want to pick trash on tag, or unless you join with a few friends who will PK with you).

One potential solution is to keep the number of gangs low and have no member limit but have an "on-tag limit" that shifts with the current playercount.
e.g. With 4 gangs and 100 players online each gang could have 20 players on tag. But with 40 players online they might only by allowed to have 8. This way there is a pool of players online but not on-tag who could come on tag when other players log off, increasing the odds that each gang will always have close to the maximum number of players on tag.
You could use gang rank to determine the pecking order, so if a recuit is on tag and the co-leader signs on and gets on tag the recruit gets a message saying they've been taken off tag. If both players are the same rank use weekly gang points to break the tie. This also works to ensure that the best players get the highest ranks in gangs, and not just the leader's best friend who lends him guns all the time but can't PK.
If any gang is stacked, hopefully this will be enough to tempt some players to leave for higher ranks in other gangs.

Something like this should help with gang activity a fair bit, then you just need to work on the other systems a bit to keep the members interested and coming back for more.
