Clan settings are accessed by clicking the 'clan settings' Clan settings icon button in the bottom-left corner of the clan chat interface. In this interface players can change the rank levels of players using the 'clanmates' tab, and edit the general settings of the clan chat in the 'clan settings' tab.

ClanmatesEdit

This tab shows the members that are in the clan along with their rank level and online status. Players on this list are shown in green if they are online and on the same world as the player viewing the list. Players shown in yellow are online at the time, but are on a different world than the player who is viewing him/her. The rest are currently offline, or not currently in the clan chat.

By clicking the button beside the rank symbol of a user, clan members can view the jobs of that user as well as their rank level. Players who are ranked admin or above can use this window to change the rank level and job title of the user, as well as whether or not the user is banned from the Clan Citadel, Clan Keep or the Citadel Island. Admins can also kick a player from the clan using this window (see below).

Kicking Clan MembersEdit

Anyone ranked Admin or above can kick other clan members that possess a rank lower than themselves from the clan. This will cause the clanmate to lose their progress on the clanmates list on the clan hiscores. They will also lose their Clan Cape, Clan Vexillum and any Orts they hold and be ineligible to skill in the Clan Citadel for a week, if recruited again. Any clanmates that are kicked can be immediately recruited again and join the clan as a guest, unless their name is put on the Clan Ban List.

Ever since the Demon Flash Mobs update, clan admins are restricted to kicking two clanmates per day. This restriction was implemented to prevent rogue or hi-jacked leaders from removing mass numbers of members out of anger. 

Clan SettingsEdit

Clan settings

The settings section of the clan settings interface

This tab lets players ranked admin or above change the general settings of the clan. All other members of the clan can view these options, however.

General settingsEdit

  • Set clan time zone - Allows clans to set an official timezone for their clan.
  • Set Clan Home World - Allows clans to set a home world for their clan. Clan members can still join from any world. This option ranges from world one to world 200 (including worlds that have yet to be added).
  • Set clan to "Clan Time" - By checking this box, all clan events will be run based on the clan's set timezone.
  • Advertise Clan Recruitment - Allows clans to choose whether their clan is recruiting new members or not
  • Add Official Clan RuneScape forum Thread ID - Allows clans to post a link to their official thread in their clan forum.

Guest access in chatEdit

  • Enter the chat - If this box is checked, players that are not ranked in the clan will be able to join the clan chat by entering as a guest.
  • Talk in the chat - If this box is checked, guests to the clan will be allowed to talk in the clan chat. Otherwise, guests will only be able to receive messages sent by ranked clan members. Note: whenever the permission 'minimum talking rank' is set in the permissions tab, this setting is automatically de-selected.

Citadel-relatedEdit

  • Signpost permissions - This sets who can view the relationships between clans on the citadel signpost. The options available include allied only, friendly +, neutral + or anyone. This setting can only be changed in the clan citadel.
  • Guest access to citadel - Sets whether guests are allowed only on the island outside the citadel walls (basically the signpost and battlefield), are allowed inside the citadel walls (but not the keep), are allowed everywhere (including the keep), or have no access. Guests must have RuneScape membership to be able to access any clan's citadel. This setting can only be changed while in the clan's citadel. The clan ban list (for guest clan chat) modifies guest access. Players banned from guest clan chat are also banned from the clan citadel. Guests already in the citadel at the time they are banned are removed after a three-minute delay, similar to the three-minute warning that occurs before the tick for all players.

Clan informationEdit

  • Open Motto Editor - Allows a clan to set an official motto, which is displayed on the Clan Vexillum and along the banner in the clan's website page. Limited to 80 characters.
  • Open Motif Editor - Changes Clan Vexillum and Clan Cloak images/colours
  • Open Keyword Editor - Allows the clan to set up to ten keywords (from a set list) to help identify the clan to outsiders.
  • Open Clan Broadcast Settings - Allows the clan to toggle which Admin messages are broadcast to certain Ranks within the clan.

PermissionsEdit

Clan Permissions

The permissions tab of the clan settings interface

The permissions section in clan settings allows players ranked admin or above to change what specific rank levels are allowed to do within the clan. In order to grant or remove a permission for a specific rank, three conditions must be met:

  1. The player changing the permissions must be ranked admin or above
  2. The rank that is being edited must be of a lower level than the rank of the player changing the permissions
  3. The player changing the permissions must currently have the permission they are trying to grant/remove

The permissions are split into five categories, which are displayed along the top of the interface:

AdminEdit

This category includes the administration permissions for the clan. These include:

Icon Description Minimum rank available to

Permission-enter keep Determines whether or not players of the selected rank level can enter the keep of the clan citadel island. Only ranks with the "Allow to lock lower ranks from the keep" permission may set this for the other ranks, and then only on lower ranks. This does not affect the per clan member "ban" from citadel/keep/island on the "Clanmates" tab. Recruit clan rank Recruit
Permission-enter citadel Determines whether or not players of the selected rank level can enter the Clan Citadel. Only ranks with the "Allow to lock lower ranks from the citadel" permission may set this for the other ranks, and then only on lower ranks.

Permission-edit signpost Ranks that have this permission will be able to edit information on the signpost in the Clan Citadel. Admin clan rank Administrator

Note: The permissions 'allow to enter the citadel' and 'allow to enter the clan keep' are only changeable inside the clan citadel.

ChatEdit

This category is for permissions relating directly to the Clan Chat . The permissions include:

Icon Description Minimum rank available to
Permission-talk Determines who can send messages to the channel. Players who do not have the required permissions to be able to talk can still join the channel and read other player's messages. Recruit clan rank Recruit
Permission-kick Determines who can kick and ban guest players from the Clan Chat. For more information see kicking/banning guests.

NOTE: This permission does not control which ranks can kick clan members from the clan. Any member holding a rank of administrator or above has the ability to kick clan members, and it is not possible to revoke this ability.

Recruit clan rank Recruit

Note: When either option is selected for a rank, it is automatically de-selected for all levels below, and automatically selected for all levels above (even if the rank changing the setting cannot edit those levels).

EventsEdit

Permissions relating to clan events are stored in this category. These include:

Icon Description Minimum rank available to

Permission-change tick Ranks with this permission are allowed to set the timing of the weekly building 'tick' to an earlier date. For more information, see Build tick. Overseer clan rank Overseer

Leave clanEdit

Any player can click this button to permanently leave the clan they are in. They will be presented with a confirmation box if they press this button. By doing this they will lose their rank in the clan and a clan member with the "Ability to recruit" permission will need to recruit them back into the clan again.

If the clan owner leaves the clan, the deputy owner will be promoted to owner. However, multiple clan members can be ranked as deputy owners at the same time. It is not yet confirmed whether or not the clan member who has been in the clan the longest or most recently assigned the deputy owner rank will be promoted to owner if the previous owner leaves. Because of this, it is recommended that the clan owner first demotes the deputy owners apart from the one they want to become the new leader before they attempt to leave the clan.

If a player leaves the clan, that player loses all orts saved in their inventory and or bank. If they wish to join another clan, they will have to wait 1 week for citadel attendance, and 2 weeks for citadel quarter master bonus and fealty rewards.

Known issue Edit

As the owner wants to leave the clan, and the clan has no deputy owner, the clan owner is not able to leave. To be able to leave the clan as an owner, you can assign someone to be the deputy owner. To do this, you can go to the clan interface and join the clan chat. Then you need to change someone's rank to deputy owner, note that you need to be in the clan chat, otherwise you can't change the ranks. The next thing is just to click the leave clan button and you can freely leave the clan.

Clan MotifEdit

The motif as it appears on the website

By pressing the 'clan motif' button at the bottom of the clan settings tab, as mentioned in the previous section, an interface is displayed which allows players to choose what their official clan symbol and colours are. Any player ranked admin or above can choose the two symbols that will appear on their clan's cape, vexillum and along the top of their clan's page in clan home. They can then choose the colour for the two symbols using a colour selecting interface and the two colours that will appear in the places mentioned above. However, the Motif will not appear unless there are five members in the clan.

Broadcast messagesEdit

Main article: Clan Admin Messages
Clan Broadcast Settings

An example of the Clan Broadcast Settings.

A clan can toggle a variety of messages, which, when triggered, will be broadcasted to the clan members with a high enough rank to view that message. The rank or toggle for each message can be set by any rank of admin+ with the Edit-broadcast permission.

LogosEdit

When editing their clan symbols and colors, the admins (or higher ranked members) can select 2 of 112 different logos to put on their clan capes and vexillums. These logos range from letters, numbers, skill symbols, god symbols, animals, and more. Not long ago, Jagex held a clan Experience Competition. The reward for the top five clans to make the most experience was a custom logo to put on their clan capes and vexillae.
