@Ryu: Would members be allowed to join more than one group at a time? I can't help but imagine a bunch of groups cropping up because their founders get inspired one day, only for the group to never grow beyond one or two members, and then to die out within two or three weeks. Seems a bit "chaotic", as Ig put it.

No, each member could only join one. There was a little chaos because clan membership was pretty flexible overall, but it could also be up to each clan to decide conditions of joining.

Ah, I see that in retrospect, "club" was the wrong word for it.

On the GSAR RP forums, the "clans" were made up by the users. I ran the Sol Army; Tinder ran The Four Realms; someone else ran the Shinobi Clan, etc. There were maybe a dozen "clans," and anyone could start one (although I think you might have needed a certain number of posts or to meet some other condition before you could). They weren't clubs in the sense of being focused on a narrow interest, but they weren't clans in the sense of necessarily belonging to a shared mythos (or to the elemental clan structure of Golden Sun---in fact, there weren't any elemental clans at all). People would have the freedom to instantiate mythology as they pleased in RP, of course.

Clubs with their own subforums / permission masks to see their subforums. Anyone can start one and set their own rules for joining / what the group activities are.

Maybe we could do user-defined groups instead of clans. The 2004-2005 GSAR RP forum did this with middling success (it became overly-competitive, my bad), but I think done correctly (ie by adults and not 13-year-olds) it will go fine.
