An MT Convention?

This should probably be in the Suggestions forum, but I'm not sure if it's a very practical idea, so hence, I'm posting this here.

Anyways, I was thinking. As most of you agree, MT is a great community. Mad friendly, and plenty of users, right? So why not hold a nice big convention somewhere? I mean, obviously there are flaws and stuff, such as we have to consider those who live in other countries and whatnot, and not everyone can afford to fly to a convention for a couple of days. Oh, and the cost to set it all up..sounds scary! I'm sure the admin/mods have enough to do as it is as well...

But I think it'd be great fun, if it ever occured. It'd be a nice little social gathering where all can play games, relax, chill out, go out with other members into town, wherever it may be. Hell, contests and giveaways along with demos of up and coming artists can be shown there to promote themselves can be set up.

Maybe it'd happen for 2-3 days at some hotel. I dunno. Just thinking and using ideas from such events as that Quake convention in Texas a while back, or TGS and E3.

This is probably more of a rant than anything...but I just wanted to voice my idea, regardless of whether it'd occur or not. Does it sound good? Who knows, but at any rate, I want to hear everyone's opinion!

And for my closing comment, I'd like to break out 50 Twister boards tape them together, and declare that we all play Strip Twister. :)

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Well, if you put it in like... NYC, I'll come. >_>; But you have to think about it this way: a lot of member's are located in Europe too. You'd have to have an American Meeting and a Euro meeting. And it would get very complicated with where it would be, who would actually come within price constraints, I mean... if you want to put it on, more power to you, but that'd be a lot for people to actually go.

Right, which is why I've been saying it's not a really practical idea at the moment. There are plenty of members overseas, and it would be unfair to those who couldn't attend! But come on..strip poker! You know you wanna!

Sure, if I can save up the cash and get the time to that sounds like an excellant idea. Just as long as things don't get freaky and turn into a naked spree >.> Then I'm cool with that, I wouldn't mind meeting the members here, such nice people I'd like to meet the person behind the screen. ^^ Rawr! And scare everyone, with my... being myself! hahaha.....oh...

The problem is I can't even afford a rented flat - I live in my parents' house, have just 1 bed - which is stacked with another one. So I can't even afford any in-country trip. However, I wish you luckier people to fulfill this dream of yours to physically meet.

OMG...liek I've bean banned cuz I'm n idiot. DUH ARMY GAME R0X0RZ!!1!!!!

=/ Dang, well I really wanted to meet ya Zdenek ^^ You've got quite the personality.

A convention that possibly some people could meet. Though it would require money, time, planning etc...

At my old forum they use to have tons of meetings.... Problem was they were all in Europe (It is for me cause I live in the states, and since the majority of the members live there they've met quite a few times) Though they are finally having one in the states. Though since I'm not really an active person there anymore I really don't care too much anymore =P. But it is too bad because I don't think alot of people could be able to attend simply either out of money or else time. Though a convention would be awesome, possible a few years from now might be the only way we could do something like that @_@. =(

Yay says I! I'm totally for this. Maybe there could be one big convention, and then smaller meetings in the other countries for the people who wouldn't be able to make it overseas. Though the money is a problem, it'd be good to see it happen one day. ^.^

Well for starters, it could be in a mutually agreed place that is easily accessible to all MT members. I have no idea. It's just an idea though, people! But it'd definitely be fun. ^^

Mini get together is more feasible than trying to run one big con. I hope something can come out of this.

omg, if this ever works then MT would be one of the craziest (in a good way) online communities ever! I doubt people would be able to afford the cost of commute, and a great number of us are still in our teens without jobs (I have one :P).

Great idea thought.

realistically speaking here, if we WERE to have one, it'd be in united sates, seeing that most members are from it. second of all, it would not be a free convention; people would have to pay atleast 50 dollars per night (to cover for food and hotel fee) each for a ticket to get in - their means of transportation to get to the convention will not be provided. we would need atleast 100-200 members to attend to make up for the fee also.

so all in all...it's an impossible idea :(
