For those of you who live in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington, Vancouver BC, etc), would y'all be interested in arranging a meetup? I've yet to meet anyone from SMWC in real life and think a get together would be hella neat.

11/11/2019 EDIT: Topic got changed which is perfectly fine by me, ignore the first page or so
A meetup sounds cool and I'd love to do one.

... If I wasn't on the exact opposite side of the bloody country.

STELLA!
I mean that could be interesting depending on where its fully located

I'm imagining most people would be coming from Oregon or Washington. Portland is the center point between both states so that could be a good potential meeting place?
Yeah Portland would be but parking farking sucks

You right but Seattle would probably be the same if we're thinking of meeting in a city. Y'all could always come to Bend but if you live in Washington you probably don't wanna drive for that long.
That's like I think a 3 hour for myself anyway

Driving from Portland to Bend (or vice verse) is a gorgeous drive but I don't have kids so its easy for me lmao.
Oh I wouldn't need to take them and it is a nice drive just long

lmao I knew you wouldn't take them I meant more that you're a parent and like 10+ years older than me so you have more responsibilities which would make driving to Bend harder.
Not really except maybe extra stops

Like what? Usually the few stops I take never take long and they usually amount to just stopping in Madras or elsewhere to get a snack or drink from a convenience store.
Children = small bladders = rest stops

Ah yes
I think a meetup would be cool, but I have the same dilemma of being on the east coast and therefore it's completely infeasible for me to participate in this. If you (or anyone else on here I'm particularly close with, I suppose) ever happens to be in New York though then I wouldn't mind chilling for a bit.

But as for your specific meetup, Samuel, if this actually does end up happening then all I ask is that photos and stuff are shared afterwards. Such an event could be legendary.

I’m in New York. #smw{:TUP:}

This is a nice idea. Another gaming forum I was part of had a section specifically for meetups, with people from all over organizing them. Not sure if a similar idea would work here?
That could be an idea but seeing as this site is known to have a lot of younger users it might not be the best idea to have section like that as for meetup you generally want to be able to keep everyone as safe as possible and having underage users wanting to go can raise flags for both their parents and staff.

Though who knows maybe it'll be a thing someday.
Yea valid point
I wish I could go, but I don't live anywhere near the area.

Let the record stand that there are quite a few people I'd be down to hang out with from SMWC on the eastern side of North America. But, meet-ups can have so many logistical issues that can really make it almost too complicated to do. Such as:
- Where are you going to stay if coming from out of town? Are you okay crashing on a couch with someone you probably just met in real life?
- Food is expensive. I mean, look, it has to be said. Do you have the budget to buy meals out?
- And I mean...what are you going to do if you meet up with someone? Talk about that one time you posted in a discussion thread? Play Super Mario World (I mean you have to, right? We're SMW Central!)? What if you meet someone and you don't get along (people's personalities could be different in real life, maybe more awkward, more introverted, etc.)?

I really don't want to come across as the negative cynic. I would love to travel and meet new people (within some degree of limits, obviously). I just feel like there could be so many issues with meet-ups.

Don't worry about it, this is information everyone (especially the young and inexperienced) needs to keep in mind about arranging meetups. There are just countless things that can go wrong, like you said above.
