Meh, I'm really not all that social of a person. I'm not traveling to Glenside or New York just to see you guys, sorry. I live in Cincinnati, and I'm on a tight budget. I'd say this is what a lot of you have. So just go on Stickam. Registration's fast, and there's always at least 5 people at any time of the day. At St. Patrick's day, we had more than 40 at one point. It's big names, too. PG goes on sometimes, and Slappy and Gory almost never log off.
I didn't mean to sound like a spokesperson, but it happens.

So, 13 is considered sub-human???? How dare you!!!!

I understand how awkward NG meets can be. I'm far from being the most social person there is, plus I sound and feel robotic as hell.
Having said that, they can be extremely gratifying and memorable, especially with the right people. Also, it helps to have a bit of recognition. Fortunately, I rarely have to introduce myself at meets--most people are able to spot me rather easily. The NYC meet was especially memorable for me--not just because I hosted it, but there were several people there I had met in the past, and many that I had wanted to see for years but never had a chance to until that day.
It's not that I'm afraid. It's that none of you guys have a meet-up anywhere close to where I live. Thanks a lot you guys.
A lot of people are in the same boat with not knowing anyone, and that's why people should not be scared when it comes to meetups. It reminds me of college dorms where people naturally become closer because they don't know anyone and they all have that urge to have company. It's a bit nerve wracking but once you're past the initial formalities it naturally does get more comfortable and then it's easier to have fun, which believe me, you will have. And you don't have to be the most social person to have fun either because usually the meetups are all about group activities. Unless you refuse to participate you'll be fine.
Personally, I hope that by the end of the year, I'll have gone to at least two meetups.

If I went to a meet no one would know who I was. I'm not a being of large presense on Newgrounds. It would be cool to meet Tom though.
Maybe back in the day when I used to post more. I actually knew who people were. Now their usernames are all a blur.

Might drop by one in London, cause I'll probably be there next year.
Though I don't know a single person here..
if your gonna go to a meet you need 2 of 3 things
1.A very popular flash, or a series of semi-popular flashes
2.A big dick
3.no knowledge of anything NG at all, that way you are just there because you heard there was a party...... so you wouldnt feel awkward when you see tom, you would just be like, "hey who the fuck are you??" "before you answer that, lets trip that guy over there, and drink a beer"
then hed say, Tom Fulp, and you would say, "who?" and youd drink more beers, then goto a strip club and then you would go to toms house, and tom would goto the bathroom, come out in lingerie, with wade(also in lingerie) and they would make out and then......O.o woah i think im gonna stop.
I think it would be extremly awkward but also pretty comfortable, considering that those who attentd would have the same interests as i and we could get along (after the awkwardness pasts)
but the main problem for me is that im so well know that i would be probably shot on sight if i went
also the fact that im only 15 may be a problem, even though its not as young as 13 its still a fairly young age and i wouldnot be able to do much, (if theres a meet up close to my location happening next year then i may consider going )

Me neither. I almost went to one a couple of years ago, but they got all Chris Hansen and freaked out that there might be some kind of pedophile organizing the whole thing and I got stuck at home.
it's fine. nobody wants you at one anyway.
except Tom Fulp of course, because every user that sucks his cock at a meet makes him feel even more like a god.
Don't be afraid of failure.
I'm afraid before I go, during the meet and after I go.
Actually that's not NG's fault, I'm just afraid of everything.
yes because i'm generally unknown and not quite social with complete strangers.
usually it's just the regs and populars that frequent those.
I wouldn't have gone to Luis's first UK meet had I not been in London anyway. Thereafter, I've endured the 7-hour coach journey for each one and they've all been worth it.
I was fairly pumped to meet a few folk I respected but generally, the 'meets' are just about going out, having fun, getting to know some new folk/make new friends and have a laugh.
I think you get the most out of them if you're an independent adult but the younger folk who had guardians at the London meet seemed like they were having fun.
Like someone said - it's just another social situation. Citricsquid (who still owes me a picture) was a bit quiet and I wasn't sure if he was having a good time or not - glad to hear you were, Sam! If you feel anxious about meeting folk, well - that's maybe something you need to get over in any case and meeting a bunch of fellow geeks who'll probably be happy to converse about games/animation/nerdy things is a good environment for that. Conversely, if you enjoy talking to random strangers, it's just a place where you know everyone's on the same wavelength and will be approachable.
I totally recommend it. Even if you rarely go on the BBS.
