How does one join the Neowin F4 Club?
Posted 06 November 2011 - 21:31
I don't have access to the game anymore, but from memory when you're on the Main Menu click Community, and then Clubs. It'll ask you to input the acronym for the club you want to join. The Neowin club is NWN, so type that in and the club leader will be asked to approve or decline your membership.
