That's... a lot.

Seriously? Wow.

If we assume that each clan has at least 25 members (to help even out the full ones and those that just started), that's roughly 25,000 people. That's a lot of Vikings running around the school! However (like most people I'm sure taking advantage of their extra slots) I have more than one character. So if we assume that almost everyone else is the same way, that would take a few thousand off that number.

But still, that's a lot of people running around!

On top of that, my second character isn't even a member of a clan. I mostly have it because I like Deadly Nadders and it's an expirement for myself, but that's something entirely unrelated. Anyway, that adds back in a thousand or two Vikings because not everybody wants to be in one or has found one that they feel suits them.

That's some REALLY generous math there. I'd assume that that the average clan has 5 members top, not twenty five, given that theres only really one clan for each social network (the forum, nightfurys den, other things) and those would have 25-30 kinda numbers. Most clans are probably just timmy from school and his group of friends.

I'd have to disagree.

Aren't you forgetting all of the open clans? Many of those have a full fifty members. Not all clans are made up of people who actually know each other.

Uh...

I'm doing rough estimates. Not all clans are full and not all of them have less than 10 memebers. It's just half-way through 50, the max amount, so I went with that. My estimations are by no means accurate or have any real numbers to go by sans there being 1,000+ clans.

 

So... basically what Skips just said.
