    well yeah, That was the general idea. its was a UK clubhouse for the small percentage of forum members that are from the UK can hang out and discuss UK related issues.

    Non-US members still popped in time to time so it wasnt as if you guys werent allowed in. you just werent allowed to join and be part of the club - So yes were are fucking elitest. so stop walking around the outside of our clubhouse like a dirty hobo digging around in our trash and looking through the windows and watching our tv while eating our table scraps!!!

    (===Im just joking===)

    I dont see how you can say you felt left out when there was a American Clubhouse and pretty much 90% of TPU user base is made up of Americans so this forums like a giant clubhouse for you guys anyway.

    Left out? Look how many other clubs are on TPU, you can't be in all of them anyway.
    So I would be "left out" if there was a "GTX 560 Club" and so I should demand it to be closed since I can't join?

    I don't see anything wrong with having "clubs"...carry on now:)

    LOL Yeah .
    I just do not think ( For me ) that a clubhouse is necessary at all . I think it provides a place for JUST that "CLASS" of people and segregates the rest from participating , TPU is a Tech forum were all are encouraged to participate . And having clubhouses will make some one feel left out no matter how well your intentions are about it some will feel this way .

    I hope that the mods will see this and delete ALL clubhouse and stop them from being initiated in the first place .

    This is just my thoughts on this issue please do not take it the wrong way . I feel that TPU is an OPEN environment for every one not a place for clubhouses were you have to be from a certain place in order to partake in the discussion .

    How 'bout we stay on the topic of why it was closed and just sit back and wait for an answer. All of this banter back and forth is just going to ruffle feathers and end bad.

    Sorry . Like I said I did a search and found it just fine as far as I can see it is not closed and is in full view . So I do not get the Op's post at all . Other than the fact that the OP wants it to be on top of every page .

    Well there is a US Clubhouse, albeit that is in GN now too. it is no different from say the XBox 360 clubhouse or any other, I wouldn't go there if I didnt have a 360 (although I moderate it lol), it's not elitist because 360 members talk there.... I agree though, TPU IS one big loving clubhouse :D
