I kinda understand what you mean and I don't want to get you off track or push my views on you but I think that the template that I put together from CoF's ideas could be something that each clan has under their profile in Clanpedia. You want a more personal approach of each clan and that can be done for sure, added later as additional information. I'm sure every clan can put together a few paragrahp history/essey/whatever about their clan, their doings and most important qualities. It will just take time to get that info. Perhaps it's better to start with a simple form, get some attention to the project, get ideas and discussion flowing and then move from there.
You mentioned the the information in the form is something that can simply found in the forums. Maybe it can but I think that it can be found even faster when it's all gathered to one topic - to Clanpedia. When I first read the topic then I understood/imagined that this could be a place where everything about clans can be found easily and from one place. That's why I created the form, to plant a seed so it can start growing. Of course, if I understand it differently then you do then I'm sorry and, as I mentioned before, I don't want to butt in and mix your vision!
