Live in the Atlanta area? ForNoReason is putting out feelings for an Atlanta meetup, please chime in!

I'm back from MAGFest after having a great weekend with tons of great people! I intended to come back with a group shot of roughly 30 artists from NG and I FAILED. Frustrating because pics like that are really fun to look back on over the years. If anyone took pictures, please post them in this thread!

MAGFest is the Music and Gaming Festival in DC, although it should change itself to the Music, Animation and Gaming Festival; the acronym would still work. I hosted a Newgrounds panel with Stamper, RicePirate and Spazkid, no clue if anyone filmed it but it should make for entertaining viewing if someone did.

The following NGers were in attendance this weekend:

@JohnnyUtah
@Stamper
@oney
@RicePirate
@Spazkid
@Egoraptor
@Rubberninja
@DJCutman
@Sabtastic
@MrChambers
@stejkrobot
@CroMagg
@CatFat
@DuDuL
@Esquirebob
@digsBot
@BooneBum
@lefthandedsock
@headphoamz
@DFerociousbeast (did I meet you?)
@flikkernicht
@Magnivez
@giggas
@GentlemanTrooper (did I meet you?)
@TheShadling
@fleadom
@omiyagames (never managed to meet you!)
@KneeGrowPleas
@LordDF

@VidGameDude
@SpinalPalm
@JaShinYa
@tristious
@emily-youcis
@lovingthedark
@guitarmasterx7
@SPace
@mohawkade
@nevarky

Am I forgetting anyone?

I had a blast! It was awesome meeting everyone! Not many pictures were taken but me, Cromagg, MrChambers, and Stejkrobot took one photo before we all parted ways yesterday. I also think Flikkernicht took some photos, but hasn't posted them online yet.

One of these days I'm going to attend one of these awesome events, but for now I'm stuck in Malta, where nothing really happens, so that day will have to be in the distant future.

Tom, will you ever age??

I think you're going to go the Keanu path. Except instead of being stuck in your 30s you'll be stuck in your mid 20s.


GAH!

Yea same here. Good to see familiar faces and new faces pop up and represent the site. This sort of festival seems to suit NG the best out of all the ones we've done in the past i think. Feels like its small enough to not be overwhelming like Comic Con but not small enough to feel ghetto like Big Apple Con that one year.

Had a ton of fun, and it was great finally meeting you Tom. Had a blast hearing about the future plans and recounting the past triumphs of Newgrounds.

Thanks so much! The video will be up later on our website. :)

Any thoughts on making your own convention, Tom? And if the project's too big for NG alone, would collaborating with other sites help? I know ScrewAttack's convention is pretty popular, so that's why I asked.

It was awesome meeting everyone, it would be a real shame if the NG panel didn't get filmed cause it was SUPER informative

That would've been nice to know beforehand :\ I consider NG a force unto itself... just hope there's some sort of meet-up in the near future, preferably at the NG offices or at least nearby. So it was a cozy event, eh? The event schedule seemed kinda low brow, to an old, unproducing goat like me, but I trust the attendees transcended that, and useful discourse did take place...

For some reason I thought Egoraptor and Rubberninja were Youtubers, not NGers. Could be a mistake on my end tho :P

Nope, both started on NG just like loads of other people.
