    The purpose of this is to see if it would be worth the time and (possibly) money organising an almighty gathering/shindig/hootenanny in London (this is the first thing that's open for debate, doesn't have to be London but everyone knows where it is).

    What I'm envisioning is a large mob of the people from these boards (I'd assume mostly the Brits, unless anyone would like to travel from further afield) running through the streets of our fair city, eating anyone they come across - 28 Days Later style-ee. Or, just getting horrendously merry and having a good time. Obviously, it wouldn't be limited to "Senior Members" or anything silly like that so anyone would be welcome, although it would be good if people were old enough to buy their own alcohol ;) (or at least look like they're old enough to, and be able to get away with it 9 times out of 10 :p). Of course, it's not limited to the alcoholics amoung us either, whatever people want to do really.

    So, what is the general consensus? No talk of specific dates at the moment, because as I stated earlier, I'm just trying to get an idea of how amny pople and who would be up for it.

    Yay or nay?

    I'd love to.

    Why don't we have it here, stateside?

    Because what would be the use of me organising something I couldn't attend? And all the senior staff are based in the UK.

    If the US guys want to organise something to run in conjunction that's fine, but I'm gauging a reaction for a UK based gathering.

    If your happy to give alcohol for free to a certain underage forumite... I'm there. :D
    Except I don't have transport.
    And it'd be better if there was an event of some sort.
    Plus abroad people.
    Hmmm...I can see why it got shot down last time.

    I'd love to. But I'm basically 16, and I doubt I'd be allowed to stumble around London at night with a load of people who I met on "the internet!!"

    Mind you, I'd be happy to steal some drink, and sit at my PC, flicking through the photos that emerge from a "Forumite + forumite + real life + booze" equation :D

    *edit* That sounds so sad and lonely :(

    Change of plan, I'd be happy to go out with my mates In Brighton with drink. That's fun. I can do that.

    Lan would be cool but it wont be cheap unless we hijack a gaming cafe for a weekend :D that'd be cool.

    Pubbing is probably the next easiest thing to do, problem are peoples ages and travel.

    I think a booked lannage would be uber, and then im sure the younger guys can come :) for a certain amount of money, i think its flat fee of £700 you can get this company to arrange the whole thing for you, venue, bar, technical/server etc support for a weekend... but i dont know how that'd be financed.

    /me looks at Munro :p

    What we could do, is have a LAN, then the older peeps can go on to pubs bars and clubs etc.. :)

    I'd love that tbh - day of hectic gaming :D followed by a superb night out!

    UKers... download (or copy) this image and edit it in paint to display your location. Once it's passed through everyone, we'll have a visual representation of where everyone is, and then we can arrange the best place to meet (it would probally still be London, but if we'd be doing a LAN... you never know). Even if we don't need it, it's still a good idea to see where all our favorite buddies are!

    I would really go if I was in the UK, I don't think we have any pshyco in the boards but you never know. And I think most of the members (including me) prefer to go pubbing than lan gaming. hehe

    Well, if you did one in the states I'd love to go. Though it'd take my parents a bit of convincing, because like Suicide42 I'm 16 and they wouldn't be too thrilled if I went on a trip to meet a bunch of people I only know online :)

    This would be fun. It would be funny meeting everyone in real life though.

    And let me be the first to skew the results northwards. Woo.
