You first need to be a Hammerhead Shark to be promoted to Bull Shark. We reward members for being helpful and active in the clan with an officer position. Also, we prefer for all officers to be frequent forum users, or at least login once awhile. Mainly we go by a recommendation system for promotions, so an officer can vouch for someone and while the rest of us determine if he/she is worthy of a promotion. Can I ask for a promotion to be an officer?
We'll consider it, if you truly believe you're officer material then message me or any other officer. Be sure to tell us why and what you've done to help the clan so far. There is no guarantee you will be promoted. What are the rules and responsibilities of being an officer?
There is a specific thread in this forum that will become available to view once you become an officer regarding officer rules and responsibilities. Essentially, it is just to continue helping the clan and not to abuse your officer powers. *Keep in mind, you still have to follow the main rules like the rest of the clan.How do I get promoted once I'm an officer (Great White Shark)?
We still go by a recommendation system, but we are much more selective and only Megalodons are allowed to recommend and debate on higher rank promotions. There is a limited number of Great White Shark positions available and their promotions are handled by only Megalodons. As of now, no one will be promoted to Great White Shark. Can I be a Megalodon?
No.Will there ever be a promotion to Megalodon available in the future?
No.Why no more Megalodons?
Stop asking Megalodon questions. We are the few and the only and the last Megalodons.What is a Ghost Shark, and why do I never see them in-game?
From time to time, it becomes necessary to step away from the game for an extended period of time, and this is not just due to boredom. These sharks have a legitimate need to be away and have discussed with officers. For the time being, they have been given the rank of Ghost Shark and have had their place in the clan reserved. These cases are dealt with on a case-by-case basis.What is a Whale Shark?
Whale Sharks have earned this honorary title through a long period of service to the clan. They are veterans of the clan and have the power to recruit as necessary. However, they are not officers, and are not entitled to such powers. However, due to their veteran status, any Whale Shark can request a promotion to Bull Shark, provided they meet the requirements.
