    You guys should totally do Tempcon. You could have the latest homebrew and gadgets and shiz. Just throwing it out there..

    The last thing I'd want to do is meet anyone here in real life.

    Also we have no budget or money and the userbase is pretty global so trying to get anyone to one spot in the world for a con with nothing in it would be an awful idea.

    I have a feeling quite a few murders would take place.

    If you can all get to my local I might turn up for a drink. You'll have to buy your own though. I'm not made of money.

    I like the idea of this but I don't think a lot of people would meet up as there wouldn't really be that much worth seeing or doing although it would be fun to meet up with some of the tempers. I'm worried there would be a lot of complete idiots showing up though.

    There have been a few meetups that kind of half worked at various points, though most of those were staff meeting other staff when otherwise on holiday/on a day out, mind you none of that was recent. Likewise if people are already going to a conference/concert/exhibition then something similar has been known to happen. Also going by previous threads there are quite a few around here that would not be caught dead at a computer games conference.

    Hosting a full con.... I would be hesitant to even have a table/talk at one, especially not in 2014 when there is next to nothing to show. About the only thing I might consider is an overview of ROM hacking and homebrew at a hacker conference, even then I would probably go more for a quick talk type approach.

    I don't think it's a bad idea at all - if forums like The Sonic Stadium are capable of organizing The Summer of Sonic, we would be able to organize a Tempcon just as easily. It's just a matter of logistics, really.

    I'd be interested if it was nearby.
