    I've met up with plenty of people who I've met online. But most of these people I met from language exchanges and a couple from meetup.com. None of them are from GBAtemp.

    Have you ever met someone on GBAtemp then met up with him or her in real life?

    There are a few members who live close me actually.
    I haven't met anyone from the Temp just yet, but I am waiting for one of them to run into me.

    I introduced my friend to the temp so he can get tons of stuff to put on his 3ds. He doesn't have an account though.

    Yep. I met up with @exangel after having met her on here. She's a really great person. I don't think I'm met anyone else on the Temp that I didn't already know IRL however.

    I haven't, but I certainly wouldn't be against the idea. There are a good bunch of cool people here that I'd be happy to meet in real life.

    I have not, and no offense but It makes me uncomfortable to do so with the way I seen people behave here, I would rather voice chat or video call and even then still uncomfortable. If this forum was more like the friendly neighborhood spider man lives in (No bortz pun intended) Maybe i consider. I already live in a dangerous place, and have problems trusting people.

    Lets make Costello invite us all for a meetup at his place. Food, drinks and first class plane tickets included of course.

    Yes. I went to the Switch launch press event thing where I met shaunj66, p1ngpong and daza. First time I had ever met anybody I had first met on the internet first as well, give or take a few times where I first sort computer/technical problems after being referred by someone that I do know which I don't count.
    A few people here have been from towns I have lived in so I may have seen others, certainly seen flash carts (and found dead ones, though with microSD intact) around the place. However I have yet to invest in a GBAtemp hat, hoodie or thong and "yo bruv, you on the GBAtemp?" is not the sort of thing I need to be shouting in public.

    Nope, dunno if I ever will because I live in the middle of nowhere.
    But it would be fun.

    Maybe one day me and @BlueFox gui can meet, we're not too far.

    Nope, since I live on the butt of the world.
    Well... Now that I think of it there's a friend of mine on this forum, does that count or it has to be someone I haven't met yet?

    Good question!

    I have never met anyone here in person within the 7 years I have been a member but I have thought about it and it would be rather cool to meet a few people here that I like. I would prefer go there to meet someone and them not come here because I think it would be quite a culture shock to many and they may not like it but I would like to go too America as long as they let me in that is...
