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.


These are good points.

Another idea might be to meetup at a gaming/media convention or event. That way, you have other stuff to do incase you're unable to meet up with fellow SMWC members. For example, a friend of mine has been wanting me to go to PAX East with him for a while. I'd definitely be up to meeting SMWC members if they happened to be there, and if for some reason it didn't work out, at least we're at a big event and I've still got my friend to hang out with.

It is a fun idea. Now that I think about it, though, there could be issues as others have mentioned, especially when meeting people you don't even really know. I've met one SMWC member but we had talked for several years outside of the site, including Skype video chatting and texting on a semi-regular basis, so we really got to know each other, and that helped make things much easier when we finally met face to face.

Was wondering when that would be mentioned. All the people in SMWC I've met in person, was at the Games Done Quick events. I've met K3fka, p4, Raiden, and Sixcorby (think I might be forgetting one other person, too). GDQ is the only gaming event that I go to on a regular basis. It's a really big, popular event, fairly well known, and has two locations, one on the East Coast (Florida) and one in the Central States (Minnesota). If there's a good place to host a U.S. SMWC member meetup, it's probably AGDQ or SGDQ. (As for other events, TooManyGames and MagFest come to mind as well. Not sure about many Pacific Northwest events, however)

Shame that GDQ never comes out here. I do plan on coming to a GDQ event eventually so maybe I'll bump into you or others!
I was at GDQ this past summer, and I'll be heading down to the one in Orlando this coming January. Speaking of, if anyone is planning to go to Jaunary's AGDQ, tomorrow morning (Oct. 11) at 8 am PDT is when Wave 2 of registration opens.

Would be cool to meet more people there!

I just might be able to swing that. I've got a friend who lives down in Orlando so I'd also be able to see him as well.
Not sure if people are still considering this but I'm not too far from Orlando. A meetup at GDQ sounds cool.
For those going to AGDQ, what days will you be there?

I’m considering a trip down there to see a friend and I could schedule it during the same time. While I may not go to the actual event, I could fit in some time for a meetup.
Right now, I'm planning to be there for almost the whole week, heading home on the 11th.

I'll be there the whole week. If we wanna meet up, we should plan a day to meet!
Awesome, I was thinking of going on January 5 and staying for a few days.
I'll see if I can arrange something. I too live in Central Florida currently.

I've got nothing interesting to add. Woe is me.
i would go but gas is like 3.40 up there
Right now I'm a toss-up between January 4-6 or 10-12.
Cool, we should message each other and add anyone else who might join in later.

Also, Samantha, sorry for hijacking your thread like this :/ I should have just made an AGDQ 2020 thread!

Dw I got you covered this is now the AGDQ 2020 thread #wario{:peace:}
Discord group perhaps so we could coordinate as the date draws closer?
I'm on Discord pretty frequently, so that would work well for me.

(don't mind the fact that I've only very rarely posted on the smwc discord #lm{sprhead})

Cool, I don't know too much about Discord...do we need an admin to create an AGDQ channel?
If you want it officially on the SMWC discord you'd need to talk to either an admin or the Discord mods but honestly that probably won't happen however that doesn't stop anyone from just making their own channel and inviting people to it, it just wouldn't be on the SMWC discord.
The Romhack Races crew will be there for the whole week! Be sure to come say hi to us and get at least one, if not multiple, hi-fives.
