Is TOG really a CLAN anymore, or are we a community?

    Just curious what members and visitors have to say

    With approx 200 members in the larger parts of the world, is "Clan" a apt word for what TOG has become?

    There are communities or townships < the size we are now, this is where my reasoning lays ;o)

    I certainly never used the word Clan for TOG snake, we are so much more then a clan, like the title says "a mature (sorta :wink: ) gaming community".

    Yep, you're spot on Snake, we'd be best classed as a "community" rather than a "clan". That was Father's original concept, so I'd call TOG a success :)

    i would have thought an unruly mob or rabble would have been more apt :D

    You are right Father, a community of people with like interests is probably a good explanation. 8O

    "a collection of individuals with either too much time on their hands or who are unable to get their priorities right", I think I quoted the missus correctly

    Since when have you needed to perform sacrifices in someone or somethings name, Bob? I thought it was just a casual hobby for you.

    So true.

    I actually tried to sacrifice myself to the great mountain biking god on New Years day, and ended up in hospital. No broken bones, but a few cuts etc & one dented bike.
