    I mean offline=real life ;)
     
  4. There is a thread about that. Keep posting and you'll eventually get a shot at access to that area.

    There are members that have known each other offline, some prior to TFP, some because of TFP. I've met a few, plan to meet several more.

    Bodkin van Horn has fucked at least 2/3s of the active users on the board. The man really gets around.

    ...

    I've met roughly a dozen TFPers. Some in one-offs and the rest at the Chicago Meet-Up at amonkie's.

    I will have met more very soon. We've got an epic TFP Toronto Meet-Up at Martian's place in a month.

    Let's see:

    Amonkie (Chicago)
    KirStang (shootin' buddy)
    Lirpa (Chicago)
    DamnitAll (local)
    Carbonic (Chicago)
    Onodrim (Chicago)
    The_Jazz (Chicago)
    PonyPotato (introduced her to the site)
    Lish (while on vacation) + his wyyyfe + kiddo #1
    Noodle (hotel where we got married)
    LordEden (visited him in the Shire)
    GeuineGirly (GTG) + dude + baby
    GeneticShift (GTG)
    Martian (GTG)
    Magpie (GTG)
    Cynthetiq (GTG)
    Skogafoss (GTG)
    Kramus (GTG) + his wyyyfe
    Baraka_Guru (GTG)
    Fresnelly (GTG)
    Arkana (GTG)
    GrumpyOldDude (GTG)
    Fangirl (GTG)
    Poetry (GTG)
    Snowy (GTG)

    ...

    Clearly not. This is the box that casts a blue light. This is the window to All The Porn (TM) and Amazon.com.

    It's tragic that amonkie isn't making it, but that lady knows everyone so I guess she doesn't need to come.

    It's mostly the US/Canadian TFPers who know each other. We've got a nice little group in Toronto that get together. I'd call those guys my friends, even though we initially met on the internet.

    I've met The Niner. He likes to pretend he doesn't know me sometimes, but we've hung out twice now.
    And the lovely mixedmedia and amonkie. And Toaster126.
    I'm about to stalk DamnitAll when I'm in her neck of the woods in a few weeks and I 'spect Plan9, too.

    I knew a few TFPers from TFP 3.0 and 4.0 (I found out about the site when my college fencing team told me about it), but I know quite a few from 5.0. I'm dating CinnamonGirl from meeting her on here.

    I traveled for my old job, so I met a lot of TFPers saying, "I'm going to be in your town for 2 days, want to grab a drink?"

    I been close to TFPers hometowns a few times, but unable to meet them because of timing. DamnitAll has avoided me every time I've come to her hometown and Glory's Sun lives 2 hours from me but won't tell me where he lives (like I would shit in his front yard or something).

    I get to meet a bunch of TFPers in less than a month. They will all be speechless when they meet me; mostly because they won't be able to understand my atrocious redneck accent.

    I used to be informally nicknamed the ambassador of TFP because I'd met so many people.. last I counted it was nearly 30. But then, I'm weird and like meeting up with random strangers - many who I now, over the last 10 years, have come to call my closest friends :)

    It makes missing the meetups hard when you do actually know the majority of the folks who will be in attendance - you know just how supremely awesome they are!

    Too many east coast folks on here for me to meet them easily. Last time I was farther east than Missoula Montanna was in 1999 when I left Florida for the one-way cross country drive back to Oregon.

    I've lost count of who I have met in real life (in the teens I'm sure), but let it be known that Baraka_Guru is one of my oldest living friends. I have known him for about 18 trips around the sun.

    Hey, I'm out here, but I'm sure not coming to your neck of the woods any time soon. Toronto is likely to be light years more entertaining than the Palouse could ever hope to be.

    Sadly no :( But I would like to... I am however married to another TFPer however, he's been quiet on the board for a while unfortunately. He's the one who actually introduced me to TFP. But yeah... anyone coming to South Africa any time soon? :p

    I live with Lordeden . ZombieSquirrel is my BFF. I've hung out with cynthetiq and skogafoss a couple of times. Very briefly met up with Poetry at Dragon*Con. Hung out with ratbastid a few years ago in Winston-Salem. I think that's it.



    What is this "you can only tag five people" rule? Harrumph.
