Other than being a set of characters next to your name what is its function? Does it do anything like automatically group you with members of your clan?

A clan is an affiliation of people that generally play together. A clan tag is a set of characters that identifies your affiliation with a particular clan.

So are you saying is it is no more than a set of characters next to your name? Clan tags have no functionality within the game? – Clark Jan 10 '11 at 20:53
@Clark: No functionality, they just let other people know that you're part of a clan (or just being funny by putting a humorous tag before your name). – mipadi Jan 10 '11 at 21:05
Like the clan tag [POOP]mipadi, for example – blesh Jan 13 '11 at 13:58
