United Federation of Claim Clubs (U.F.C.C.)

To sum it up, Claim Clubs have become rampant. Will the mods stop it? No, they won't. So who will? We, the members will. This club is made up of the majority of the creators of the claim clubs on MAL. If you have a idea for a new claim club, it has to clear us first. Any member that joins a club we do not pass or approve of will have the option of either remaining in that club, or being banned from all other claim clubs that are members of the U.F.C.C. and have all their claims in those clubs revoked. Yes, I know this sounds harsh, but the problems with claim clubs have become so bad this is really the only option left.

We do this because there's no other choice. You search something up and there's like 3 versions of that very same claim club. Many people were upset their ideas were stolen and used by others. We're just trying to stop people from duplicating. If you have an original idea, it'll pass through no problem. We're not doing this because we want to control claiming, we only want to stop duplicate clubs.

- Please don't open a claim club if it has not been approved by the U.F.C.C. If you do, it will either receive an automatic black list or a black list voting depending on whether it is original or not. You will be notified if your club is blacklisted.
- You must submit your ideas for clubs in this thread. You may only submit 3 ideas per week.
- Once your idea goes into voting, it may take a while to pass. But PLEASE be patient. If you open your club idea while it is still in voting and not approved, it WILL receive an automatic black list.
- Claim clubs only allowing claims from a certain anime/manga or with a set eye/hair colour will not be approved.
- If your idea got denied, you are allowed to resubmit it with new rules.
- All members must follow these rules, including admins.
- Failure to abide to the rules listed may result in: Black listing, banning of membership, or other penalties.

Approval Vote Rules:
- The Approval Vote Topic is open for 6 days.
- During these 6 days, members vote only on the clubs, they think are duplicates.
- The only legitimate type of vote is 'No, duplicate, [name of the original club & link]'.
- Votes other than this will not be counted. The only exception is when the approved club is yet to be created, in that case please point to the approval vote thread instead.
- After 6 days an admin will count the votes against an idea, if it reaches the majority, the club will be denied. Curretly the votes are counted by Tsuruya-san.
- Clubs which haven't reached the majority will be approved.

How to Make a New Claim Club:
- Step 1: Post idea in the "Post Club Ideas Here" thread
- Step 2: A new thread will be opened to discuss the club idea for 6 days.
- Step 3: Idea is voted upon by all members, if the club is not found as a duplicate, it passes.
- Step 4: The results of the vote will be PM'd to you by Tsuruya-san.

In order to vote for club ideas, you must have/do the following:
- 3 Month Membership (To prevent multiple account)
- At least 250 Posts
- At least 15 Claims (This number might change, but it's so that we know it's users who have experience with claiming and not just people who want to claim more)

Majority is currently 10 for Approval Votes and 15 for Black List Votes!

Want a claim club you made to be part of the UFCC?
Post the name and link of your club in the Current Clubs thread. If it's not a duplicate, we'll make sure to add it right away. ^^

understandable, but what did everyone expect to happen, now all the people that couldn't get there claims in before are now getting them, plus all the new people are gonna start claiming to, claiming my be slow, but it will never die, the simple fact that people join this site every day supports tht.

Oh, yeah maybe it was misunderstood.
But, all of us were referring to duplicates.

RenaPsychoKiller | Sep 3, 2009 2:08 PM
The 3 of you simply talked about "making claim clubs", so everyone would have though that you were referring to all of them, both duplicates and original ones.

crystal_yuy | Sep 3, 2009 2:02 PM
Did I say original claim clubs were pathetic? No, maybe what I said lead to confusion, but I was only talking about the duplicate one...
Anyway, there's not much original claim club that are opening anymore..

RenaPsychoKiller | Sep 3, 2009 1:49 PM
I only partially agree with you. It's indeed retarded and pathetic that people still make DUPLICATE claim clubs (they do so only for pissing off the creators of the original ones), but still caring about the original claim clubs is not pathetic at all. >_>

crystal_yuy | Sep 3, 2009 12:13 PM
@ twilight_suzuka: I'm not at all bothered that claim clubs are being made... I just ignore them actually....

But it's like roymustang24 said, I just find it pathetic that ppl are still bothering on making them...

ArcherEmiya24 | Sep 3, 2009 11:53 AM
It's just pathetic that people are still bothering on making claim clubs.
That stuff died a year ago, the time of the claim clubs passed long long ago.
So, I really pity those ppl that are still doing that stuff.

Niko-hakubi | Sep 3, 2009 11:32 AM
wow i can't believe people are still bothered what claim clubs are being made, this clubs existance didn't stop anything before
