A user (or manager) is a person that receives a login-name, an alias and a password and is the 'owner' of his club for as long as he wishes. Each user has a unique UserID. In Hattrick there were up to 990,000 human managers (2009).
After signing up, a user can participate in many different ways in Hattrick:
- manage his team;
- post/read in the conferences (even in the external forums);
- create a CHPP approved programme;
- some users also take more responsibilities and keep the game running while being Hattrick workers;
Hattrick leaves it up to each user on which part of the game he spends the most time or no time at all.
