Perhaps it would be a good idea to make it easier for gangs who are aggressively pursueing new players to get in contact with new players. Make the email function more obvious and more user friendly. Put in a mass mail function for the players who joined today. Even better, make that function pick out people with certain specialties. Another idea is to use the in-game advertising for gangs so they can advertise to new players. Let's face it, a brand new player is very unlikely to click on a banner to buy something so why not use the advertisement banners for the first five days for gang adverts? Also, make it easier and more obvious how to use the forum. The forum is a great recruitment and interactive resource for new players but in my experience these are the least likely people to register and pore through the information found there. These seem like pretty easy adjustments you could make to put newbies in close contact with the gangs that can help them. Just my 2 cents.

I think I will probably permanently relax the policy for allowing new players into the gang.. as much as I'd love to keep only Trenchwars players in our gang, that rule has probably effectively pushed 30 (assuming some tried other characters) players away from Booty Master. I should add that I always offer to help the new guys who apply but I think that HTF has a point (though it applies to all gangs, not just MIG) .. that people join and it's a little confusing initially and they think a gang would be glad to have them and sometimes it takes a day or two to get back to them or they aren't "good" enough of a player yet and when you're just starting a game, confused and noone's helping you.. it's easy to just quit..
Honestly, ideas like ideas like training gangs- HTF's or Athens branch .. that's a great concept. We should definitely have some gangs in the game geared towards training newbs.
How about making a list of "veterans" that when you first start playing Booty Master you get paired with one of these veterans and they can mentor you for your first 5 levels in the game. And after that you're on your own.
We could pool together a list of volunteer veterans that are willing to train and every new person who starts is automatically assigned to one of them?
