In Mine Nation we put much value to being involved and active. We reward our members for helping out the clan at the citadel and for participating with events. Our rank system shows that. If you want to obtain a higher rank, it's a good idea to take a look at this:

Got any questions? Take a look at the FAQ:
[+] Spoiler
When a rank above Admin loses the rank for any reason, which rank do they get?
Admin if they were Coordinator or Overseer.

Since Organiser can be applied for, presumably without rank limitations, do they get put in Admin or back to where they were before becoming Organiser? Will any possible rank ups unrelated to being Organiser during the time they were Organiser be taken into consideration if so?
We will save their previous rank and put them back to that if they fail to meet the Organiser requirements. There will not be any possible rank ups taken into account because losing the Organiser rank would essentially mean they have not contributed enough to the clan to deserve rank ups. A slightly different approach will be applied for voluntary retirement from the position.

If Coord loses their rank do they become Admin or Gen?

What exactly does the Overseer rank serve?
It essentially is an upgrade from coordinator. They can be given bigger tasks and have more of a leader role.

General is purely a voting rank? That is they have no other responsibilities?

Are the Admin ranks involved in voting? Since they appear to consist of those who no longer wish to partake in management and those given the rank temporarily to Warden. Will there be permanent Admin ranks besides ex-management?
Yes they are still allowed to vote and it is much appreciated, however not mandatory. The temp ranks do not have this right. There won't be admins apart from ex-management and the temp ones.

How will inactivity in game or forums affect ranks? Will there be a difference in treatment of inactivity with or without notice.
It won't affect ranks other than Organiser, Coordinator, Overseer and General. If people become inactive for a long enough period of time they will get removed from the clan but can retrieve their rank on return. There will be an equal treatment for people leaving with and without notice (I don't blame anyone for getting bored of rs, it's still just a game after all)

How much activity is relatively active (as stated in Captain and General ranks)?
Visiting the forums at least roughly weekly (this is a bit of a loose requirement, based on what we can offer for people to do on the website)

Where it says "All previous rank descriptions hold" do you mean for it to include the Wardening responsibilities of Admin and the Event responsibilities of Organiser for the higher ranks as well? I don't think you mean for those to be a part of the higher ranks (Events at least).
All ranks above Admin have the Warden responsibilities, including Organisers. Coordinators are expected to be helpful around events but are not directly involved in hosting and creating them.

How frequently does capping frequently imply? Most weeks of a month?
More than half of the time.
Still things unclear? Feel free to ask a question in game
