First, I'd like to thank you all for your quick response. As I have received no new families and the Consuls have sent me the Clan name lists, I will be emailing Jac an updated Census later tonight so he can post it on the Policies and Projects page. I'll also probably post the results somewhere on the Message Board after I compile it later tonight.
Secondly, we have decided to implement a new regulation on family size. No family can exceed the size of 12 members. It's generally preferable that families are smaller than 12 (I'd prefer around 8 at most) but I'm willing to allow up to 12. Obviously, this does not apply to those few families that have more than 12 right now. They can keep their current level but may not grow any larger.
The reason behind this is that I feel that families should not grow any larger than the basic administrative unit of the Brotherhood; the Battleteam. If we continued to allow families to grow larger - hitting up to 20 or even 25 - we might as well just get rid of Clans and replace them with families. The purpose of families is not to continuously recruit new members, but to add a new element of fiction and roleplay for use in Brotherhood work. I feel that this restriction will prevent the original purpose from being corrupted.
