This has been discussed many times but I like the idea so much I figured I'd make my own post about it.
When gangs were introduced several years ago, they were valued and taken advantage much more. Which was because you didn't need to yell to defend gang members and/or their bases. This isn't the case anymore though and really the only reason to join a gang is for the perks.
I think it would be an awesome idea to add a new rank called Co-Owner. Before you go boooo do realize that only the owner of the gang would be able to set this rank. With the new rank should come some new permissions yes? Such as the ability to start gang wars, and set officers. Both of these permissions are needed as the only way to get officers is of course by speaking to the owner of the gang. This is a problem because many of the times 'Owners' of gangs are banned or just quit the server. And with only Owners being of to do those two things, it leads to gangs dying more frequently, no real gang competition, and just not a whole lot of reasons not to just have a solo gang. Right now gang wars are very underutilized and everybody likes having some friendly competition.
