Lumps - Pooclub Accounts
There are three distinct parts to pooclub or lumps to use the technical jargon.
How you wish to play pooclub will determine which lumps you will need to join.
We use googlegroups for our forum.
This is where most of our daily activity takes place.
If you sign up to our googlegroup you will be able to chat and squabble
with the regular pooclub characters and take part in features such as
Todayís Topic, Poochoonz, Caption Competition etc.
Activity varies enormously.
Some days you can get over a dozen emails from other pooclubbers, other days
you get nothing at all.
You can, however, turn the emailing facility off and communicate with
pooclub via the googlegroups webpage instead.
To join the forum, sign up here:
This is our main website.
You will need an account here if you wish to vote on any of the issues
that get debated heavily in the forum, and particularly if you wish to
evict anyone in our monthly Cull.
Unlike the forum, subscription to this lump will not result in you
receiving a whole barrage of emails every day.

request notification whenever anyone changes a wiki page).

trust in you by giving you an account here.
Other pooclub lumps that we occasionally use (or used to use) are:

Facebook is a bit rubbish, isnít it?
Yes, shameful as it is, we have a
Donít bother following it 'though Ė we never twat anything.
I mean, how can you say anything worthwhile in 140 characters?
We used to use
for our forum but the service went completely down the pan and
became no longer viable for the fast turnaround of emails that
we require when a really hot topic flares up.
An account here will only enable you to view messages sent
between 2000 and 2005 but you will not be able to post anything
We have no intention of re-activating this service despite constant
nagging from Naomi to move back there.
Pooclub's parent site.
Pooclub was originally founded as a forum for the authors and
readers of Shitespace. Here resides some of the foulest poetry ever
written in the English language.
Pooclubbers don't so much think
outside the box, they haven't a
clue where the fucking box is.
You can't make this stuff up, you know
