Well, this is more so just a topic to break in the new board and hopefully get some discussion going. Nevertheless, it's still an interesting question. There's quite literally hundreds of clans to choose from, so what made ZybezNet your choice of clan?

When TS pretty much kicked the bucket, I was contemplating joining ZybezNet mostly because of the following reasons

Spoiler

Of course, most of my old clan mates jumped ship to another clan and many mates that I haven't seen for a while were there, and I was all like "Hell yeah! Sign me up!" and thus, I joined PvE Hit Squad. Well, that's enough out of me. Let's hear your story. Why'd you pick ZybezNet as your clan? Do you enjoy being in it?

Ramu edit: This is for the clan in game, not the forums. You just look really stupid if you talk about joining the forums.

When asked about something that I did 2 years ago...the reasons aren't apparent. There were no flying citadels, avatars, or ranking system back then.

I never actually started searching for clans. It's quite the opposite. I guess why I was interested was because Zybez was my favorite site for RS help and info. How could I ignore it? It was the first site I stumbled over when looking for guides. I liked it, always used it for quests and calcs early on in membership (until RSwiki came along :innocent: ). Part of that reason is that our clan has a relaxed atmosphere. Yes, we have rules, but you are allowed to chat about anything that doesn't break them. As a long-term member, I wouldn't be leaving this clan for a while, maybe never. This is still my favorite community. It was only rather recently that I began actively posting on these forums.

The name "Zybez" is censored because our community is awesome :-D!

I suppose so. I would have left if I didn't.

I got lonely and bored after my small clan (mostly just close friends) broke up, and since I was a CL for guides and pretty active on RSC I decided that I might as well join Zybeznet as a way to get more involved with the community and actually talk to some of the guys from around the boards in-game. I wanted a casual, friendly environment and I found it in Zybeznet.

Zybez was also my favourite site for help and info, I always used the quest guides to help and complete my quests and I still use the calculators a lot.

The last clan I was in before really getting into Zybez, W3A, knew one of my supposed 'friends' (long, long, long, story) was a botter and kicked him - but reinstated and even promoted the guy to a higher rank within a week. I remember asking the leaders why they decided to do that and remember their rationale either being awful or non-existant so left on the spot. When I heard of ZybezNet I was still searching for a replacement, and already being one of the 'original' Zchat groupies(?) plus becoming steadily more active on the forums, it was the natural choice.

Without wanting to toot the site's horn too much, Zybez genuinely is the most professional of all RS-related organisations. Go into other clans and/or FCs and you enter a world where the ranks kick who they want to remind everyone who's boss, promote their mates, demote people for the stupidest of reasons for the sake of it, and the list goes on. People actually have their heads screwed on right here. Makes for a nice change.

The day citadels were released I rushed to the portal to join it. I was one of the first admins in the clan. I joined because well I work here, and I love the community so much and really had no other obligations with anyone else.

What Manga said pretty much sums it up. It helped that Content team got ranked from the start also.

Wasn't really a reason why i joined, i remember that i'd just left another clan after having this massive argument with them about something,

i knew that i'd used Zybez for a while, (Didn't actually use the forums to post but i did read them etc) thought i'd tag along at a corp event from Jim, got through a few kills and was like yeh might as well join, got my invite from Ramu and never looked back!



And nothing like a first post ;-)  HIIIII ZYBEZ! :$

I found out about the clan on a whim and because I was raising in ranks at an exponential rate that it'd be fun to talk about Forum stuff in a clan that's name is familiar to me.

Collecting resources in the citadel. Some people will tell you it means getting 2700/2700 (aka maxing) and some will tell you it means getting ~1350/2700 (approximate amount to get a clan ring and earn fealty). I usually take it to mean maxing.

Note that you only need to earn fealty to get ranks.

Capping is actually good exp, If you are looking for a neat way to train a skill you can get a level with ease even in the 70s.

I'm not in it but it looks like its a way for everyone to not only be part of the board community but to take it to the next level in game.

I joined on the first day of clans. I joined because i thought a helpsite made clan would be run better then a random one made by a grade 7.
By looking at our clans rank i think I was correct.  Before I joined zybeznet I use to be one of the people that just read chats and rarely talk, zybeznet changed me! I found lots of people that I love talking to. Our clanmates are smart, kind, helpful, funny and just 100% awesome!
