    that's crazy talk.

    i know your idle god teased moses in the dessert but that doesn't mean that you can tease frogs and get away with it.

    Ah. Wasn’t sure what Green Frog meant, but now that I know, I agree. Only problem is I’m not sure which post to recommend!

    I do know a lot of interesting things go on the clubs, and a public forum would make a great place to get the word out about them. I mean things like:

    Club 218’s database of master games (and the zillions of tournaments they have and fill with over 600 members!)

    Banded clubs: Under 1000 Club 86, 1000-1200 Club 115 and 1250 and Under Club 20-- Places where like-leveled players can develop together and have a greater number of banded tournaments than are offered on the site.

    Useful learning clubs: The Beginner’s Club Club 209 and legendary Personal Chess Training Club 51 (experiencing technical difficulties). (Greenpawn34 User 437199 started something similar Club 196 at one point; not sure if anything ever came of it.

    In my own club Club 171 we have non-subscriber tournaments, consultation games, discussion games (where two players play an unrated game in the forum and discuss with everybody all their moves) and we’re working on a Club vs. Club Challenge.

    Scotland Club Club 58 has a whole separate website with tourneys and other matches played on this site. My club also uses an extra website to track non-subscriber tournaments.

    I know of a number of clubs whose owner use the clubs to recruit/scout/whatever members for their clans, too.

    And of course community stuff.

    I’m sure there’s more innovative stuff many would find interesting going on in those clubs, but where to discuss it? I’m with GreenFrog! A Public Clubs Forum! Hurrah!

    there should be a one click ability to reach the club forum as there is with the general site forum.

    I don't look at the forums for a couple of days and I have been married and been made the bitch

    I really don't know what really would be posted on there.

    Except come and join the Scotland Club Club 58. There I done it, so there is no need to post again.

    One thing I would like to see is an icon for clubs, which clearly states clubs, like the clan one.

    I have pm'd a few Scots to see if they wished to join the club and they did not even realise clubs existed. The icon really is not clear enough.
