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?
