I've been thinking recently as I have alot of friends all who all play the same game but are not in clans/guilds or anything like but we all have no way of staying in touch properly.
As such I've been thinking of starting a gaming "community" where we don't have clan tags or guild names but just a collection of people who come together to play video games and have a laugh in our own unique way.
Games I am thinking off:
Battlefield - Bad company 2
Counter Strike: Source
Left 4 Dead 1 + 2
World of Warcraft
Total War (all of em)
Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3
Zombie Panic: Source
Lord of Ultima
Etc etc. A place where our teamspeak 3 server can always have people on it.
If people have other games they wish to play they can do so also.
My question to those in communities or clans is what do you think are the right ingredients to make it work?
