Hello! Welcome to the Animal Lover's Club!
As the name suggests, this is a club solely for people who love animals of any kind, a place where we can discuss everything to do with animals and make friends at the same time!


To join this club, simply answer this question - "What is your favourite animal, and why?" We also have six rules:

1. Obey the usual SPPF rules.
2. No flaming, i.e insulting others because of their opinions, no matter how much you may disagree with them.
3. No spamming, i.e posting things that add nothing to the current conversation, or have no relevance to the club.
4. No bumping. This means no posting more than one month after the last post. This is what the ALC v.2 was closed for.
5. No one-liners. This means don't post anything with only one line to it - flesh out your post, write about more than one thing, so that what you write isn't counted as spam. This is what the ALC v.1 was closed for.
6. Anybody can start a topic, but please, no more than two topics running at a time.


This is the list of all the members in the club. I will add to the list as new members join:

I will more than happily accept any artwork/banners/userbars for use in signatures to advertise the ALC - if you have some artwork you wish to be available, send me a PM with it attached. This is a collection of the art we have received from the last two clubs. If you use any, remember to give credit!

Here at the ALC, we used to have a poll for animal of the week, but due to inactivity, this has now been changed to... *drumroll*

Animal of the Unspecified Time Period!
So basically, when we get round to it, we'll all vote on which animal is "best" for that unspecified time period. Then, a link to a page of info about that animal will be placed here, on the front page.


The Animals of the Unspecified Time Period in the last club were:

1) Cheetah (http://www.cheetahspot.com/)
2) Burmese Python (http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/reptiles/burmese-python.html)
3) Sailfish (http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/fish/sailfish.html)
4) Jackson's Chameleon (http://animal-world.com/encyclo/reptiles/lizards_chameleons/JacksonsChameleon.php)
5) Leatherback Turtle (http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/wildfacts/factfiles/933.shtml)
6) Red Wolf (http://www.thewildones.org/Animals/redWolf.html)
7) Giant Panda (http://nationalzoo.si.edu/Animals/GiantPandas/PandaFacts/default.cfm)
8) Southern Pudu (http://www.bristolzoo.org.uk/learning/animals/mammals/pudu)





Enjoy!

Is that three requests to join I see? If so, welcome!

I'm going to PM all the members from the old club(s) with a link to this version of the club, so we can get more members!

Could I please re-join this club?

My favourite animal is the Lynx aswell because of its beauty and because of this; *"The Lynx is an elusive, ghost-like animal that sees without being seen. Often called "the keeper of secrets of the forest", its magical appearance stems from the mystery that such a creature's secrecy can also be its strength. The Lynx teaches us that even the smallest can succeed in life, and that the world can unfold itself to those who stop and listen."

But I also like: wolves, tigers, snow leopards, lions, horses, panters and cougars.

*Source Wikipedia English version.

Of course you can, welcome back to the club!
I'm also a big fan of lynx, especially because they're so elusive.

And that's a really nice passage!

*okay, fine by me

What animal do you like the look of best? (Is it the colour? shape? cuteness?)

I just had to do his topic because then I can tell everyone why I love Rabbits o: Well I love the fluffyness of them and the colours are so cool, even grey makes them look so awwwww c:

Hey guys. First, I guess I owe you an explanation as to why I wasn't posting in the last club. Besides having the flu and not coming on here as much as I used to, I don't know if many people noticed this, but on about 4 or 5 occasions the club had been bumped from m ore than 1 month of being dead. Now, being the "goody-goody" that I am, I didn't want to get in trouble (:@) for posting in a bumped topic, so I figured that I would just let the club die. But people kept bumping it back up, and I didn't know what to do. It seemed like such a waste to delete the club, so I just let it die. Also, school recently has become quite busy for me, and so I don't really have a huge amount of time which I could spend being the owner, so I decided it'd be better to let igsey become the owner. Sorry for any inconveniences or anything ):

Anyway, may I please join?

My favourite animal is either the cow with black and white patches or the thorny devil. The reason I love cows so much is actually quite odd; I was playing this game on my friends mobile, and I misinterperated what she said. She said to duck under seagulls, but I thought she said seacows, so I started mooing. From there is how I started liking cows. I like collecting cow merchandise a lot, and so I have a special place in my room where all of it goes.

The reason I like Thorny devils, is, well I don't really know. I just really like their appearance, and the fact that they're found exclusively near Perth (Which is where I live for those who don't know).

Other animals which I like include Siberian Tigers, all types of Turtles and Glass Squids, all of which are for their interesting patterns.

Hello! May I please join again? I like all animals, but I always say a rabbit is my favorite animal when I'm asked. I'm not really sure why. I don't really have any favorites, and a rabbit was the last favorite animal I had, so I suppose I just stuck with it.

It's nice to see you around again, Spoinky! Just for future reference though, if you PM the people bumping the club, it might make things a little easier.

Gee igsey, giving your friend special treatment I see?

Animal of the Unspecified Time Period
I don't get this? Do I just say a random animal and we vote on it? what is the limit on the amount of animals?

What animal do you like the look of best? (Is it the colour? shape? cuteness?)
I could just say my favorite animal again. Peregrine falcon. I like it's color, and how cool it looks. However, the animal I thinks looks the best is the Platypus!!! It is just so wierd.

What animal do you like the look of best? (Is it the colour? shape? cuteness?)

The animal I like the best because of it's appearance would be the glass squid. My favourite thing about the Glass Squid is it's orange polka-dots on it's bubble thing, I think it's really cute.

Animal of the Unspecified Time Period

Umm, to be completely honest, even as the owner I didn't really understand the process of nominating animals for it ): I guess I'll vote for the grey wolf though.

Also, I have a question, is Animal of the Unspecified Time Period a topic? Because I have a question to ask the club about my pets ):

7th August 2009, 2:27 PM
Can I join?

My favourite animals would have to be Wolves,Dogs and Foxes but my favourite would be the German Shepherd dog especially the white ones.

So if I'm accepted

What animal do you like the look of best? (Is it the colour? shape? cuteness?)
White Bengal Tigers. They look really cool and have great colours.

I hope it's not too late to join up again. :V

My favorite animal is the giraffe. They just seem so awkward, yet cute at the same time. When I was younger, I used to be taller than everyone in my grade, and it made me feel bad about myself. Giraffes kind of reminded me of myself back then, and that's how/why they became my favorite animals, I guess, because I could relate to them, as weird as it sounds, lol.

My mom was the one who got me really into animals - we used to go to the zoo all the time when I was younger, and we have many pets around the house (cats, a dog, two turtles, tons of fish, hermit crabs, etc - we are working on getting a seahorse, hopefully!) as a result. I hope this is good enough reason(s) to join!

Hey guys, I'm back from camp, sorry for the long absence!

SkinnySweatyMan and Chelc, welcome back to the club!
And ZFXZFX, you can join too. Yay ^^

So:
Animal of the Unspecified Time Period

Bald Eagle - 1 vote
Grey Wolf - 2 votes

As for queries on this - yes, basically pick an animal that you particularly like at the time, and we'll vote on it. But keep it to a maximum of three animals at only one time.
Also, I'm not counting this as a topic, as it is something that we'll (hopefully) be doing fairly regularly.

crobatman
12th August 2009, 7:52 PM
I'll nominate an animal then. I nominate the Walrus!
Why? because it is the first one I could think of for any Animal of the Unspecified Time Period.

SkinnySweatyMan
14th August 2009, 7:08 AM
Thanks igsey! I take it this is similar to the animal of the week we had before?

Well, I like the grey wolf, I was thinking about being "Amercan" and voting bald eagle, but I have to go with the walrus! I'm in a band called Walrus, and it has a similar story behind it. We were booked to play a show, and the people putting it on were making fliers and they needed a band name for us; so the singer/guitarist just said, "Walrus!" because it was the first thing she thought of.

crobatman
14th August 2009, 5:57 PM
walrus! lol, i guess she just said something random like i did.

Has anyone ever seen the episodes on animal planet called animal face-off?
It was a show that talked about what animal would win in a battle. like Elephant vs. Rhino. It was sometimes biased on who won.

May I join? I haven't joined a club for a while^^;
I love animals, being around them makes me very happy. My favourite animals are parrots, especially the kea. They are so funny to watch, intelligent and cute. I also like foxes and rodents a lot.

igsey
15th August 2009, 12:59 PM
Sure you can join, Virtual Headache! Welcome to the club =D

I've never seen that show, crobatman, probably because I don't have Animal Planet, but it sounds interesting! Who did win out of the Elephant and the Rhino?

Animal of the Unspecified Time Period

Bald Eagle - 1 vote
Grey Wolf - 2 votes
Walrus - 2 votes

Voting for an animal of the U.T.P will stop on 00:01 (GMT) on Monday, so I'll count up the votes then and add the winner to the front page.

crobatman
15th August 2009, 4:06 PM
Oh, the Elephant won obviously. It gored the rhino with its tusks. So, let that be a lesson to all you Rhyperiors, and do not pick a fight with a Donphan!

Joking aside, I still think a rhino could beat an elephant. I do not think they would even battle in the wild because they probably avoid eachother.
I am sure you can look it up on youtube or somewhere else.

obviosly the grey wolf. the adults are so majestic and just awesome. then the pups are SO cute.

speaking of which, i have a photobucket account where i put a bunch of animal pictures for the animal lovers social group. if anyone is interested, heres the url.

the pictures are of africa, the international wolf center, and a snake that was eating a frog on my driveway.

walrus! lol, i guess she just said something random like i did.

I guess so. The only problem with it though is that there are already a lot of bands called Walrus, so we're trying to come up with something new.


Has anyone ever seen the episodes on animal planet called animal face-off? It was a show that talked about what animal would win in a battle. like Elephant vs. Rhino. It was sometimes biased on who won.

Never seen it. It sounds like it could be interesting, just as long as they don't actually show animal fights. I wouldn't like to watch that.

Regarding the animal I like the look of best. . . . that's a tough question. I guess the first animal that comes to mind is the Siberian husky. It kind of looks blue and white with black on its coat, it just seems appealing to me I guess. They have pretty eyes as well.
