Now I've got your attention, this is how the story goes.

I went into Birmingham New Street station yesterday to take a train down to Coventry, and as I passed through the ticket barrier, there was a group of teenagers around what you'd expect the majority of people on this forum would be age-wise. One of them was holding up a sign saying 'DEVIANTART WHERE ARE YOU??'. Well anyway, I hopped on a Pendalino down to Coventry and did some shopping etc. When I returned home in the evening, I logged onto the computer, had a quick Google and found the actual arrangements. It was, believe it or not, a forum meeting (although I figured this out the moment I saw the DeviantArt sign).

So then I was thinking, well what if this could happen to this forum. Unlikely, of course, and I'm not suggesting that we do, but I thought it might make an interesting topic of discussion. The point, by the way, of the meet was officially to visit Cadbury World down the trainline at Bourneville. The train network, I thought, was actually not a bad way of getting people to meet. It's easy, it's direct and it's independant.

So here's the killer question for you: when do you think in a forum's lifetime that it becomes acceptable to actually have a successful face-to-face meet up, and do you reckon that this forum will ever get there?

When you trust them. If a forum meetup for the British members here were to be arranged for next week, say, I would not go. Quite simply because I don't know you all that well. No offense meant to the members here, but I've been on here less than 3 months - a bit too rushed for a meetup.

If there was to be one organised for next year, and if I'm still here, I would love to go. You seem like good guys and all - well, except for the Bad Cops. No names mentioned. They know who they are. But, yeah, it would be cool to meet Psy, Nanook/Phoenix, Fido, Pecnut, Ankh, Redundant, Gnarkill and a few others.

It kinda worked for the customers of IPS so I don't see why we can't do a forum meet one day. I doubt I would go though...too scared...

Yeah, the shops in Cov do suck (better than Nuneaton tho), Birmingham Bullring is better.

On topic: It seems a kinda peculiar idea, but I spose it would be kinda interesting to actually meet some of you. We could wear name those trendwhore nametags showing our forum names, rofl.

Yeah, let's meet in Sunderland wink.gif

I was at a forum that did this once (well, lots of times, it's an annual event now) and it worked out fine. Turn out of about 15 people, played pool and went for a few drinks, all well and good. But I don't know if it'd work here, somehow. Personally I couldn't be arsed going further south than Newcastle.

Did Kerryn and Siem ever go on that roadtrip, by the way? Thought not.

I think Glasgow would be the best place to hold it, cos at least three British members live there, plus we have Glasgow Green.

I live near none of you... I don't know anyone on this forum that lives in Vermont. I'm lonely. All of you guys live like 2 hours from each other. I'm like 6-8 hours away (NY).

Somewhere in the middle would be better, equal chance for all to get there

Do it sometime next summer when Catnip/Kerryn is visiting wink.gif

I would probably find a way to go, as it seems an interesting idea
