The Loser Club was started after the Are You Famous? thread. People who didn't get voted for, or only got voted for a few times came to The Loser Club, a thread which was then held in Recess . The losers made up the club's original members. Now the club has expanded and more people have joined.
During Script Frenzy 2011, which a number of Year-round NaNoers participated in, several Losers became sad because they won awards on an Are You Famous? thread. However, they were not thrown out of the club (obviously).
Louie01's thread The Winners' Club tried to destroy the Losers' Club, but failed.
With the addition of the Social Groups forum after the Wipe at the beginning of the 2011-2012 NaNoYear, Cylithria Dubois moved the Loser Club to the new forum, meaning that Cylithria made all the threads for a while. She said that the continuation of the club was okay only as long as its official name was Tender Loving Care, because "The Loser Club" implied that the members were insulting themselves. On Extremereader's suggestion, Bean organized a PM petition to move it back to Recess, which was received by Cylithria with the reply that it would be considered and discussed by those working with the YWP. However, Cylithria encountered difficulties that led her to leave her post as YWP Forum Moderator, leaving the petition to move The Loser Club hanging, with no one sure if it was still being considered; but several threads later Dragonchilde began allowing NaNoers to make threads in Social Groups again, allowing The Loser Club's members some amount of freedom but still a much slower rate of life.
Now it is on its forty-fourth thread. The current thread is called The Loser Club 53:Oh No, Not Again., created by Bean.
The thread is played out as if it is a giant room. In the room there is: A swimming pool with underwater caverns, an octopus, and possibly a shark, a trampoline, a bungy-jumping station thing, a robot butler named Fred, a never ending corner of snacks complete with coffee, many, many other things, and basically anything you could ever want.
