Why after 2 years did someone feel the need to move the UK clubhouse to GN?

Is very odd that this has been done out of the blue, but maybe it has something to do with the second announcement Bta is going to some time soon.

One can only speculate.
I've been wondering that and when exactly is the "end of the week", as we're already into Saturday? It could well end up as a Sunday announcement.

I think it was the lack of communication and no explanation as to why this happened that's annoyed people.
Oh! Now that I would be mad about but thinking it was done out of spite :confused:

Petty drama I say, petty.

Spite might not be the right word, however I wouldn't call it petty whatsoever, a lot of people liked the clubhouse and it's just weird that after being there for 3 years it was randomley and quietly moved to GN, as pointed out it was not a general nonsense chat a lot of people posted good comments/questions and advice etc in there.

Go look in all the other clubhouses. Conversation in the other clubhouses isn't just confined to the thread topic. Everyone strays from conversation a little. And the most away from tech that we speak is at around 4pm when we get hungry and start talking about food :laugh:

But anyway;
Answers will come soon, patience gentlemen.
Let's just be reserved for now. If we are calm and polite then we might show that we are responsible enough to have it moved back. Going off on one won't help us (not aimed at anyone, just saying).

Whilst I agree it shouldn't of been moved.

Stop being little girls guys.

Yeah GN is a crock of shite but there's plenty of other forums to go to, hell I happen to know of a UK based technology forum and website that's not only after new members but could even be after staff.

PM me for details XD

The US one was just to try and emulate ours by the MM that is the only reason it was created, the UK clubhouse was a well established thread that had over 12K+ posts and a lot of regulars including a mod.

This was done out of spite, there is no other reason to move such a useful and well used clubhouse.
Why should there be a special UK Clubhouse any way ? Sounds a bit childish if you ask me . I LOVE TPU and feel it is a community . By having clubhouses like the UK clubhouse I feel left out . I am in the USA and I have not seen a USA clubhouse . Kind of make it sound like an elites place were only the UK people can go , Personally I do not like that and question why any one else would as well .

Well maybe not hurt any one but maybe it makes some of us feel left out ? I know when I seen that thread I feels like I was missing out and also felt as if I could not post there since I am an American . Not like my opinion counts but really I read the OP thread and well I was not allowed and is that what TPU is really all about ? :shadedshu
