2011 SNAFU RP Forum Meetup: Just how screwed is this?

Postby LostD » Thu May 22, 2008 1:41 am

2011, RP Forum meetup!
(started in 2006 by, and special thanks to, Moderator Hana)
Original meetup thread[


Guy with too much free time: lostdrifter

Stage 1, The Initiative:
Voted in favor
(COMPLETE!)


Stage 2 and 3, The Venue:
South East Coast, Florida, USA
Being Switched to. New York/New Jersey, New York, USA
ALSO! Please be sure to pin your location on our map! http://www.frappr.com/snafurpmembers


Stage 4, The Organizer:
Shebum Devi
Resources: Lodging for Girls, knowledge of area, 2 mini-vans and 2 regular cars
Being switched to Deena!
Resources: Have yet to clarify.


Stage 5, The Dates:
Summer, ???th of ??? to ???th of ???, 2010
Beings swtiched to Summer of 2011!
(Days and Months needed. Remember: This is also how long we want to spend there)
5 days, dates not set.


Stage 6, The Lodging:
Shebum Devi's residence: Vacancies (Girls Only)
Motels and hostels (more info later)
(More places needed, especially for us lads)


Stage 7, The activities:
The beach
morikami
Coral Castle
(Still collecting, would GREATLY appreciate if URLs are provided)

Could not be happening here

Stage 8, the Guest list:
Might sound redundant, but if you can say you can make it, please state so. I'll keep this up to date. If you know that you can and are willing to make it, state "confirmed". If there is a distance problem, or a money problem that your not sure you can change in time, but you BELIEVE you can go, state "pending". If there is no chance in the seventh layer of hell that your coming, or you just don't want to, state "not attending". This is gonna be done in the mafia vote format, just so its easy to see, with 2 "#" infront, your name then your status...

Example:
## Lostdrifer: Pending

REMEMBER: What you put yourself down as is not set in stone. This is just to give an idea of who WANTS to come. Pending is for those who want, are willing, but currently unable. Confirmed is for those who know they can come, and not attending for those who just don't want to, or haven't a chance in hell of coming. FOLLOW THE FORMAT OF STATING. IT MAKES MY JOB EASIER (I should have stayed lazy...)

[center]~ Beginning of list ~[/center]

Guest List (confirmed):1 :
Lostdrifter

Guest List (pending): 9 :
Sentios
Akaine
Zath
Styx
Guy-that-comes-and-goes-but-never-stays (Frost)
Tuor
Hana
Cyclo
Mastermind001

Not attending:

[center]~ End of list ~[/center]
[center]Announcements!!![/center]

(05/23/2008) I am now officially the Nazi for format. I'm only gonna put your position up there if you put the ## up there, along with your name. I don't want any ambiguity with people's stance.

(08/03/2008) The duration is decided, now we need to get some dates. Getting more activities and lodging choices would be nice. Also, could someone PLEASE get Shebum to come on at least once? If she's still willing to help, I'd like her to make some kinda sign that she's approving of this.

Somebody, FIND SHEBUM DEVI... (bounty: +25 respect)

(02/09/2009) Change of Power! Check most recent pages for details, but could be new Organizer and Venue. See above. If you got beef with it, say it now, but keep in mind that she is VOLUNTEERING to help, and it would be better to have a location that had an active one of those.

I moved back in with my folks, but they usually mind their own business and let me do what I need to.


From the previous thread.

I don't make decisions now. Only confirmations.

Naw, just the organizer that states rules. I've learned from years of experience that it is not best to pursue changing a girl's mind when she says, "girls only."

Of course, Dorian, I'm sure you could ask nicely to stay, I'm sure they'd love it if you could sleep over. You could be their gofer boy. (only semi sarcastic)

##Sentios: Pending

I'm not sure it's a good idea to accept any confirmations until a year prior to the event, or at the very least I have no intention of confirming while we're still 2 years away. There's like a one year (or 18 months or something) limit on hotel reservations anyways.

And if Dorian gets to lodge with the girls this would totally turn into middle school with us all crowding outside her windows with cameras.

Well it probably has to do with the fact that she lives with her parents, so that's understandable. I missed that line at first.

I realize that the pending list is gonna be overloaded cause it is two years away, but people can change their choices later. Its just to give us an idea of how many we're getting.

And don't be a fool, Sent, being that close to the window is amateurish! Go for trees and bushed across the street and use zoom and binoculars! Go in with tech!

And I feel I should point out that Shebum isn't in Ft. Lauderdale, rather Boca Raton which is about 45 minutes from there. At least, I'm fairly sure of this.

And to preempt anyone who asks, No, you probably can't stay with me. I pray I'm not still where I am in 2 years, but in case I am, there's literally no room. On the chance that I'm not, then we'll see. I'd have to really like you though. So that leaves... very few people.

Righto, I'll just edit that with, "Miami," cause the bottom line is we're in the area that is dangerously near you. I take it you are a "confirmed," Dorian?

Added after 2 minutes:

Ah, screw it, I'm just putting "South East" Coast, Florida.

Should just put 'somewhere between the gulf and the atlantic' and be done with it... at least for a day, it'd be humorous that way.

Sounds like I'm a shoo-in... that was a joke, And Happy Birthday Dorian... don't hit me Jay started it.

##Acktoo: Pending with an 95% chance of 'not going to happen.'

The chance of me coming is very slim due to various factors including, but not limited to: distance, budget, timing, transportation...

Things can change in two years though, so who knows?
Too good for you.

I'd say that it is very likely I could make it, but I'm still going with pending, just to be safe.

I have no percentages because I have fuck all idea where I'll be by then.

But, maybe Lost and I'll have worked something out, kekeke.

Anyways, I don't think it'd be too hard for just a bunch of us to zerg rush a cheapo hostel. Then it'll just be all us, eh?

Those things are there for people with budgets like us after all o 3o

I don't know where I'll be in two years either, but I can say that I'll probably won't be able to make it. It's clear across the country for me, and I'm a rather poor college student already trying to save up for something particular. If I'm lucky, I'll be able to get family or a group of my friends to vacation there, and then I'll just happen to be in the same area as the meet-up. 8O

I doubt that you're going to get many confirmed people right now... unless of course they live close enough to Florida that a trip like this wouldn't cost them very much.

I'm pending, but I'll probably end up going. However... two years is a long time so there's no telling how financially sound I'll be in 2010.

Again, I realize asking for confirmation is a bit too distant, as it is 2 years away, but yes BG, I meant exactly that. Those near to it will say if they can make it, and those who are interested put up pending. Realistically, it doesn't matter if at this point in time whether or not you can afford it. What is being asked is whether you are interested, thats way pending is up. Pending means that you WANT to go, but currently CAN'T. Those who say they they aren't attending are just those that simply don't wish to go, for whatever reason. THE LIST IS NO CONCRETE. You can change status as the year progresses. I'm just hoping for a more stable number to be confirmed in coming in the final months.

And Dorian is right. Cease and desist all whiny bitchiness as of now, for there was over two weeks where people could have opted for the position of organizer. Obviously, we want the location conveniently close to the organizer, cause it'd be selfish and irrational to ask someone in New York or Vancouver to find venues and activities, as well as travel resources, in the middle of Kansas. With that being over, well, work with what we have, and what we had was from who contributed.

Now, suggestions, please and support. Negativity and laziness is too easy to give, so we don't need it.

Added after 4 minutes:

Thanks for the sticky, Jay. Yeah, we'll try to work something out.

Was it really worth it becuase all I said was bleck?

I certainly didn't try to ask for a change. I don't like florida, I had alreay expressed that a long time ago. However, It won't stop me either. Just wanted to make an opinion known.

Because I like redunacy!
