Never been to a meet-up. I'd probably want it to be a showcase of people's art, with lots of one-on-one questions on how they made stuff. Although I wouldn't want to talk about my stuff. What kind of fun things happens at meet-ups?

I would definitely go there, but it's far far away from where I live.

seeing as i am 14, and have never been out of my own province, i doubt i will get the chance to go to an entirely different country to meet adults i met on the internet all alone and go to various bars together.

I looked at all of the meet pictures on Luis's website, they look like a total blast. The dilemma I see is that all of the attendees are friends that have met each other before and are relatively well known artists or forum moderators. I may attend one if I plan to meet a member of the BBS there beforehand.

I wouldn't recommend you go, we all have to get raped by the mods and admins to pay for the expenses.

I'm not afraid to go to an NG meet. It's just that I don't live anywhere near where one is (I live in Florida). Besides, my mother disapproves of meeting people from the Internet in real life, because she's afraid they'll use me for porn or something. I gave someone some samples of my voice, and she was afraid someone would make porn using my voice.

I set fire to a lesbian at a meet-up once.

It is a bit akward, i remember the first time i went to London, i was on the plane saying to myself... ok well no backing out now.. and i was kinda nervous about going overseas to some country ive never been to and trying to meet people ive never met, etc. Lol i remember the customs agent at immigration was giving me some grief, cause he kept grilling me on how i knew these 'friends' i was visiting.

Long story short, it was a great deal of fun and the hospitality i got from the people there and anywhere i visit really is really warm. I dont necessarily recommend doing what I did because it does carry its share of risk and had i not been older and independent i wouldnt even dream of doing it. I was actually kind of nervous in NY cause i felt like it would be a stickam meet and i dont really visit that place enough but it panned out fine and i made some new friends and caught up with some old ones.

My advice would be that if one of these road shows comes within arms reach, it wouldnt be a bad idea to pop up, whether you are well known or not. I think in the end youre just a user of the site and nobody really gives a shit if you work for ng or are a mod or a level 59 etc. Youre just a user who visits the same site and WORST case scenario you always have that topic to fall back on.

At 1/24/10 12:22 PM, absent wrote: I know what you mean. When I went to Wizardcon and saw Tom and some other Newgrounds people, I felt extremely awkward, and was unsure what to say. Having people "know" who I was when I had never seen them before in my life was also a little surreal. This was my first time seeing Internet people, and combined with the fact I am not a very talkative person, I did feel a bit out of place.

However, I think as time went on during the event I became a little more comfortable, so it really only takes experience to get used to it.

I can imagine this being similar for me, although I'm 13 and live in SA Australia. so it may be a few years until I'll ever go to one.

I think it's only awkward if you let it be. Everyone kept telling me the nyc meet may be awkward at first but, to be honest, i didn't get that from most of the people there. there will always be the few awkward people who place themselves into their wallflowerness by standing off away from the others or not engaging in conversation (especially about things other than ng). But I find if you start off acting as if you know everyone or as if everyone is just a friend of a friend that you're just now meeting, it works out. you can talk about ng for a while, favorite flashes and games, and then move into what your hobbies are in "real" life. you may find it to be a totally rewarding experience.

may i suggest the nj meet? /shamelesspromotion.

At first once I had a room to go to the NYC week a week ago I just bought a ticket and didn't think much of it, but on my way there I was contemplating on the bus (well in the bus bathroom on account of me being a dumbass to be exact, but that's another story) that man I'm going to meet people I never met irl before and it got me a lil weirded out, but once I went there I met a bunch of cool people and had a good time. I mean I never thought I would go sing in a karaoke bar, but I did and I had a ton of fun. So I suggest going to one and at first you would be a bit intimidated, but after a while of actually talking and getting to know them that it will be okay.

I think i would have to wait until im older until i start meeting other people from NG. Not alot of people would like talking to people my age. Not to mention it'd be awkward for me to be talking to a bunch of adults. Not to mention every meet has drinking involved, and the whole problem of getting there in the first place.

Yes, it would be rather awkward, particularly for the lesser known folks.

Everyone would know each other (I assume), and I would be there, just standing on the side, watching. Cause I'm an insignificant douche.
