Guide to performing admin/owner duties

Postby Tommelz on May 4 2011, 4:51pm

Hallo allemaal!

I've read a similar guide like this one on the Future Combat forums, and decided to re-write it for the Kingdoms at War users. I hope this guide will help out everyone that needs it. Enjoy reading it!

-Changing Titles-


First of all, let's learn some basics, such as changing the titles of members within your clan.


The owner or the admins can do this (although only owners can change admin titles).
What we need to do first is go to the List of Clan Members (circled below) and tap it.

Image


Find the member who's title we are going to change.
Scroll down the roster until we find the player.
Next to the player's name we will see a button which says
"Manage".
Tap it.
Image


You will come to a page which looks like the one below.
Tap the button which says
"Change Member Title".
Image


Type then desired title into the text box and press the "Change" button.
Image
Image


YOU HAVE SUCCESSFULLY CHANGED SOMEONE'S TITLE (LOL)!
Congrats young padawan.
Image






-Declaring War-


I will show you how to declare war on enemy clans.

NOTE: Your clan must not already be in a war, or an upcoming war.

First of all, we'll need to go to the opponent's clan page.
Image


Press the button just below your clan's name.
Image


Click on the "Find Rival Clans" button and search for a suitable rival clan to fight.
Image


This will bring you to page similar to the previous.
Press the
"Declare War" button and start stocking up on pots and allies. ^__^
Image

You should be very carefull on who you declare war against. Once you've declared and the enemy accepted, it's on. You are able to forfeit a war after the 24 hour mark on the war clock.

Different types of wars:

Plunder War
A plunder war has two sides, like any other war. There’s a side with attackers, and a side with OSFs. The attackers will gain ‘free gold’ by attacking an OSF. If you’re in a plunder war you’ll always have to carefully read the Clan Announcement in order to know which OSF is open for attacks. If you attack the wrong player you might get in to problems. At the end of a plunder war the attacking side will forfeit, and the OSF gets the tax, so they get a part of the profit aswell. This is actually called a reverse plunder war but it’s the most common plunder war in the game.

Real(Friendly)War
A real war has attackers and spies on both sides. A war like this is what this game is all about. It’s very simple: The winner gets the pride and the tax. In a friendly war the leaders of both clans usually make a few deals to be sure to get a ‘fair fight’. This will be done in Matched rosters(=Stats of both clans will be relatively equal) and locked rosters(=Nobody will be allowed to join the clan after this deal is arranged).

Of course there’s many rival clans in this game, who will not agree with terms for a friendly war. Wars like this usually contains a lot of mercing(=Inviting as many strong people as possible whilest warring). Not to forget there’s a great chance of stripping(=Buying all his/her allies and keep hitting him to drain all this players gold/pots) someone in a war like this.




-Accepting Members-


Go back to the Main Clan Page!
Click on the "Manage" tab.
Image


You'll arrive at a page similar to the one in the picture (it will look different depending if you are an admin or an owner).
Press the
"View Applicants" button.
Image


This will take you to a page which shows you the names of the players that applied.
Depending on whether you want to accept or decline a player, you will have to press the corresponding buttons.


The "Accept" button is pressed if you would like to let the member into your clan.
Press the
"Reject" button to deny the player of delicious cake and fulfil your mildly sadistic desires.
Image






-Kicking Members-


To kick a member, go to Main Clan Page and tap the "Members" button again.
Image


Scroll down the list until you find the player you wanna kick.
Press the
"Manage" button next to their names.
Image


You will come to a page similar to the one below (will look different for Owner/Admins).
Tap the
"Kick" button and wa la~ he falls face down.
Image


Remember! Only Owners can kick Admins.






-Disabling and Enabling Recruitment-


To disable join requests, go to the Main Clan Page again.
Tap the
"Manage" button.
Image


Now tap the "Disable Join Requests" button and this will stop people from applying to your Clan.
Image

All done. =)






-Editing Clan Descriptions-


To edit your clan's description/info, go to the Main Clan Page again.
Tap the
"Manage" button.
Image


Tap the "Edit Clan Info" button.
Image


Tap the "Edit" button.
Image


Change what you want, and when ready, REMEMBER to tap the "Done" button.
Image


You have now edited your clan description. XD






-Changing Roles-


To promote/demote your members;
Go to your Main Clan Page and tap the
"Members" button.
Image


Find whom you want to promote/demote, and tap the "Manage" button next to their name.
Image


Tap the "Change Member's Role" button.
Image


Take your pick. (;
Image


Note that you should only give admin status to a person you trust, and not just because this person is strong. With power comes responsibilities! It won't be the first time a clan got destroyed because a clan owner trusted another player to quickly!




Disbanding Your Clan


Go to your Main Clan Page and tap the "Manage" button.
Image

Tap the "Disband" button.
Image


You have now disbanded your alliance. =D

Once you disbanded your clan you can't get it back. You'll have to buy a new clan for 3 billion gold or 100 nobility points, so be absolutely sure about it! (Funny) fact about clans: You’re only able to have 100 people in you clan, exept the two clans called iG and Foxes. They’ve been rewarded an extra 20 member slots in their clan, as they participated in a beta test of the war system.
