|2008-06-24 Clubhouse removed from the Shop|
|We have stopped selling the Clubhouse product. We will put more effort into improving the Supporter package with new and improved features, instead of developing and supporting two different premier packages.
If you got a Clubhouse subscription nothing will happen with your Clubhouse now, it's just that you can't buy a new subscription.

|1. How long will CH keep on working?
Until your subscription runs out.
2. What will happen to all the data saved there?
Don't know if there will be an option to keep it in some way, but I doubt it. So, if you want to keep the data you will have to save it yourself, or find any other service (CHPP?) which does it for you.

|The announcement is that we stop selling the subscription, because right now and for quite a long time we have not been able to provide the quality of service that we want to do for Clubhouse. So by not selling it anymore we create the option for the future to not offer Clubhouse anymore. It will probably happen that Clubhouse as it looks today will cease to exist, but we want to make that a smooth experience and hopefully we can then offer something better.
The problem with CH has been that it was developed by an external developer, and does not fit at all together with any other Hattrick code. There has been a lot of frustration among CH users that we don´tb fix bugs fast enough, and that is totally understandable. We could either put other things aside to fix this, which would have consequences for the 950.000+ users that don´t use Clubhouses, or we could do what we are doing now, which is basically to stop charging for something that is not good enough at the moment.
But I do understand that current users are now worried that we will pull the rug out from under their feet, so for this reason we extend existing CH subscriptions so that all users have at least one year from today.
All information below should be seen as deprecated until the final ruling of what will happen to the existing Clubhouses is made.

Hattrick Clubhouse is an easy-to-use service that allows you to build and maintain a homepage for your Hattrick team. Hattrick Clubhouse is an add-on to Hattrick Supporter and is therefore available exclusively to users who are Hattrick Supporters. It will not however give any in-game advantages. It is an optional extra that encourages the community aspect of Hattrick. Currently, more than 6,600 managers have a Hattrick Clubhouse of their own.
The Clubhouse is tightly integrated with the Hattrick database, which means that a manager can update automatically many facts and statistics about his team. It's easy to customise and you do not necessarily need any knowledge about HTML. Features include enhanced statistics on players, games, and the league. You can interact with other clubhouse owners by using the guestbook feature, you can add customised polls, operate a series pool, and build your own link collection as well as get your very own club.hattrick.org e-mail address.
Additionally for those users with some knowledge of HTML and/or CSS the clubhouse can be customized to individual preferences. The free page feature which allows users to include (almost) any type of content is one that many clubhouse owners use to give their team pages a touch of character and individuality.
Clubhouse has its own dedicated conference, which can be reached by looking for thread 8416457.1. This is a good place to ask related questions, get tips and help with designing your clubhouse and almost anything else concerning clubhouses.
In order to support clubhouse owners and to enhance the community aspect a number of clubhouse-related federations have been established.
Currently the largest, with 47 members, is Clubhouse Team (CT) AllianceID: 65760, wich was founded at 11/09/07. The language used is German (Deutsch). Other federations include:
- Hattrick Clubhouse (HTCH). AllianceID: 6042. Founded 29/11/03. All languages.
- Clubhouse-Föderation (Clubhouse). AllianceID: 46416. Founded 30/08/06. English and German.
- Clubhouse Designers (CHD). AllianceID: 68181. Founded 21/11/07. English.
Due to the Server move of 2006-11-13 clubhouse users experienced problems accessing their clubhouses. The Hattrick Team responded to this by announcing on the clubhouse conference that all clubhouse subscriptions would be extended by 10 days.
