To be clear -- you're proposing a Gathering of the Forumites?

Complicated.

I think she is. Definitely complicated.

Spegg, where are you proposing having this?

I don't think so... nothing so violent a reaction as your poll allows, so I'm not voting - but I'm not really interested in flying halfway across the country for a weekend I'd by default miss half of anyway. Also, I'm still leery of meeting folks from online...

So, I'd be a no-go. Sorry, all!

I wouldn't mind meeting people who are in the Midwest/Great Lakes area--sorry, but I can't really travel all the way to the East Coast.

Mane, I thought you lived in California, for some reason. Am I right, or wrong?

You're probably best off working out who's interested here, and then making specific arrangements by PM. There's no specific problem that I can see other than logistics, as long as you meet up somewhere public - I know we all know each other here, but you should always play things safe when meeting internet people. I know that a few ES people have met up IRL when they happened to wind up living in the same city.

nd obviously, I won't be coming. Location issues.

Part of the problem is that very few forumites live on the east coast. I think you, Tenshi and I might be the only ones - at least that I'm aware of.

Besides, Spegg, are your parents willing to host a forum get together? ^^;

Don't be too sad about it! It's a great idea, just hard to execute given how very diverse all our locations are.


... I've met a few internet peeps... but no one from the forum yet actually! Maybe one day.

Actually, I did do a meet up a few years back with Fealean when I heard that she moved from Scotland to a city less than 2 hours away from where I was living at the time. We've been friends ever since!
Strangely enough, even if we had never met up in the real world, we would currently still be living within a block of each other - Fea just moved onto my street (completely independent of the fact that I live there).

Well, we're not even on the right continent. But one of these years we might have enough spare cash to meet up with all'n ye.

Unfortunately, I live in Indiana. Smile Is there anybody nearby (Chicago/Cinci/Louisville-areas) that want to meet up?
