So anyways, seems like everyone else's been copy-catting our ideas for establishing a get-together IRL over the summer. A couple of us (me and Cadieness in particular) stumbled across the idea when we were chatting stuff over in #TFD:

personally, i think meeting with friends that i know only online would be kinda awkward in RL; but if that's how you roll, bros...

Well, think of it this way. If you hang out enough with them in CN, you get to develop a sense of friendship between that person. I've had it happen and seen it happen with others on several occasions. What I'm saying is, you can learn someone's character by being friends with them. Meeting that person in real life only adds on the aspect that you're with the person, for real. They're still the same person themselves, the same person you defended/fought with in the Karma War, or that alliance leader you signed a treaty with, and so on. The only thing that's different is the face and better experiences (since obviously the internet only goes so far). :P

I appriciate your input, but I think that a real-life meeting and experience as a group would strengthen current friendships and make new ones...all of which would find their way onto CN in IC form. ^_^

I live in Toronto, does that count?

Of course, that's probably the place we'll all be meeting at anyways. ;)

Fun but informal... so no tuxedo?

Bring one if you want. :awesome:

Canada's Wonderland is damned expensive.

And Cadie is just trying to hunt me down. angry.png

Two in one (Gopher and Sunstar): If you've got concerns, just drop by at our meeting on Monday and bring them up. As I've said, there's nothing set and pre-planned, we can change anything at anytime if most people prefer.

Alot of people behave differently online than they do in IRL, you'd be surprised.

Cadie is a champ though so it should be all good -- have fun guys... and Cadie!
