I know there are some very diverse and creative clans/community groups out there, many of whom may have their own Club setup on PS Home.
So, I was wondering... how often do you make use of the Club features and particularly the Clubhouse?
From a social point of view there are some great things you can do with a Club and the private space provided is a brilliant way of meeting up with fellow members. There too are some downsides, such as the limit to how many people can be in one Club, so it will be interesting to see how they are utilised today.
I myself am in a Club and we purchased it in 2011. Since then although we have had a few meetings and events in the space, we certainly could do a lot more. I've been keen to try get more of my clan members to check out Home and what all there is at the touch of a few buttons.

But I suppose, it's one of those advantages of affiliating with a Club, and it's quite a professional form of recognition.
I use my club quite a bit, though to be honest a good portion of my members are European (German, to be specific), so I don't know how many of those members are utilizing it to its fullest extent. I've striven to keep my members active (with planned events) and use the forums to let them know about upcoming event and new items. And I love putting fun stuff in my clubhouse for them to use.
Most of my NA users have their own clubs, so they aren't usually around unless we're doing an event, but I'm in my clubhouse at least once a week updating the bulletin board and such. (And changing the decor--I love doing that).
I really wish I could change my club tag and abbreviation. And the bulletin board is just awful. There's one member who's name triggers the 'forbidden words' thing, so I can never put his name in a post--and it's nothing even CLOSE to a swear or dirty word, so I don't know what that's about.
I think the Club system could definitely be streamlined. I'd like to see an end to the 'notes' and just do one continous post with a larger word count. But other than that, I am satisfied. I have 3 very nice, very interactive club skins and I switch them out depending on the season and my whims. Love it.
Maybe it's a love/hate thing... haha.
There's so much more that could be done with Clubs and it could be an even more sought out Home feature (and not just for the tags!).
In future would be great to see more social/interaction options and maybe the Clubhouses can be geared with minigames and more utilities to encourage people to use them, as they are meant to be a major perk of buying a Club.
