you know. you seem like you can hold a conversation. why don't you write about why your clan is so awesome? not that you have to or anything. it's just a suggestion. when i ran my site i didn't go to other sites to request members. i made friends on xbox live and asked them to join us. then those friends asked their friends and so on. before you knew it i had over 300 members. we liked to keep the numbers small. we did competitions, tournaments, prize giveaways and all sorts of stuff.
another thing to keep in mind is that some people use gtp from work and don't have access to things like youtube. firewalls are mean, but they do help us keep our jobs.
oh, and trash talking of any kind isn't much of an incentive or very encouraging. :) again. just a suggestion. good luck with your recruiting efforts Rabbitfootfoots! i like bunnies. :P
