    Hello, Tempers. I came up with an idea and would want you guys to hear me out.

    I used to frequent Newgrounds (loved the flash videos, some quality work there) and they would do meetups every once in a while, where people within an area would come together and hang out "IRL" to get to know each other better.

    If a shitty, asshole filled, shady forum like Newgrounds could pull it off, you think we could?

    I say it would be fun to hang out with fellow Tempers who love video games, in some central location for a day. Get to know them better. Maybe even make some new friends.

    I live in Chicago, and don't have a car, but I have a U-Pass (unlimited rides around city and outskirts for college students here) and can go just about anywhere in the city.

    What do you guys think? I know some people would not even feel comfortable doing this and I understand. I am just tossing out the idea.


    Maybe if enough people are interested it could actually happen.

    Well that was the goal of the Temper Map:
    http://gbatemp.net/t244656-temper-map

    The problem is GBAtemp's community is so widely divided geographically that its hard to get enough of them together to really make for a "meetup."

    Btw, you might want to have this moved to the General Off-Topic chat. No one takes the EoF seriously.

    Buy me a round trip flight, somewhere to sleep (doesn't matter if it's a couch or sofa), some beer, and one blanket, and I'll meet up with you Schlupi.

    Actually, I think some meet ups in the Toronto and Vancouver area would work.
    We have a lot of members from here and there.

    I also think it would be pretty cool idea if you would have a meet up in the UK due to it being a small country.

    Aha, it is small.
    DeadLocked lives in the same town as me and Danny600kill lives about an hour away from me.

    But I think most tempers that live in the UK are around the London area.
