This is one thing you might want to keep on the back burner if you are looking to swell your ranks. There are many kins out there, like this one, who have limited numbers and just can't seem to grow. Just as a reference you could consider having another kinship merge with this one. I have seen this done with a lot of success. Usually the officers of the merging kinships are made officers of the host kinship. I am not saying to take this course of action, just something to think about.

I've actually had one person speak with me in game about merging our Kinships, though I really wasn't interested, as I thought that would mean abandoning this Kinship, along with its name and my rank within it, to basically join with another. Merging Kins seems to be a way for one Kinship to acquire more members, whilst still keeping everything they've already had. If we left this Kinship, I'd either be an Officer or a Successor in the other Kin and we'd basically have to go by their rules and their thoughts/ideas. Also, it would mean leaving our own website and forums.

To me, that sounds like a huge hassel, and we'd be leaving all of this behind.

I think this kinship merging with another should be a last resort if anything. I for one would not like to see this kinship merge with another, unless that was absolutely the last option. My post was more geared to having another kinship merge with this one. But as I said, that also should be only an option. If you start to see recruiting become slow or stale, then perhaps visit the idea of another kinship merging with this one.

Ah, I understand what you're getting at. If we were lucky enough to find another small Kinship that wasn't afraid to leave behind their name and whatever else, that'd be wonderful. I'll always be open to any respectable Kinship merging with us. Smile
