The idea of "Faction Recruiters" was proposed in one of the faction threads. IE, someone who officially goes around trying to get people to sign up to their specific faction of LCC.
Since something like that would affect the entire project, not just one faction, I felt I should bring up my concerns here in the general discussion to get some input.
I am opposed to the idea for a couple of reasons:
From a global perspective, it's probably best to just invite people to the LCC project as a whole, and let them choose their own faction based on what suits them best, instead of feeling like they're obligated to join the faction of the "recruiter". This gives people the option of building in the style that most interests them, which I think we can all agree is the best scenario possible.
Secondly, we want to make sure that the membership levels of the 4 factions stays sort of balanced (Which it has so far. Thanks, everyone!), so as not to give a huge advantage in contests, and faction-specific recruiters may throw that out of whack.
Ultimately, everyone should feel free to invite their friends to the LCC, but avoid pushing them to join a specific faction.
(Also if they are new to the CC site, be sure to direct them to read the TOS in addition to the LCC Info/FAQ thread. We don't want to make a lot of extra work for the Mods and Admins by flooding the forum with new members who don't know the proper posting rules, etiquette, etc
Feel free to discuss
