^ Yes, that would be a bump. :D

I hope that whoever runs it will to the SPAM eating contest again.  I'd like to be in that!

Last time, I'm pretty sure that it was raw.  I'd prefer it to be raw, myself.

From what ive seen, they havent been on the forums for a while. I think itd be better to choose people who are on the forums all the time. That way we all know each other and arent just listening to tom and his friend. Thats why i like the idea of panel leaders that the people here decide on.

I'd like to kindly disagree with you on that. While Tom hasn't been on the forums a lot lately I've been to one of his panels before (Pocky Club) and he's an excellent panelist! Even then he wasn't super active on the forums but it didn't really matter because when you met him in person he was just cool. I think whoever can actually execute it the best should run it, and since Tom has experience with these I'd be fully supportive of him running it.
Sometimes the messiest panels are the ones with too many people trying to run it and be in charge so two people isn't bad at all....

To add to that, the last time this panel existed, Tom ran it.  He was more active on the forums before that con, and this panel was one of those reasons.  I do support the idea of Tom running the panel, but only if he wants to.  If not, there are many people on the forums that I could see doing a good job running it, myself included (though I can think of a couple of others that'd probably be better).

Aw shucks guys... I guess I need to get some paperwork filled out if we're going to have this panel again huh?

My office computer can get to the forums again, but I work weekends so I can't get to any of the meetings.
It's gonna be tricky but I think I can pull this off.

^ Really?  Damn.  That sucks...

Well, if that be the case, then perhaps we should figure out who's doing it instead.  It looks like random is a top nod, and I would like to throw my own name out there as a possible panelist.  Any other ideas?

I to haven't been on as much as I used to but I keep my ear to the ground.
Add long as I don't have any staff position conflicts I would like to help.

Something I think would be fun, make up games we could play on a large scale based I
n forum threads, trick would be to make then simple and in a way lots could play at once
Like the Oregon Washington + - game go thru the room and people just sounds off where they are from largest group from one area wins, rough idea but its always near to hear how far people come from

^ That basic idea is a good one, though I don't think I'd use that exact game.  Perhaps the Pokemon vs. Yugioh, or maybe a new category.  There's probably other games that could be done, too, like a modified avatar caption game, or the word game.

Ooh!  Something that I've thought about doing a whole panel on (but this would probably be better) would be a "Create a motivational poster" game.  We'd have teams of two or three (or more, maybe), then show them a picture.  The teams would work together to come up with a poster, then we'd vote on our favorite.  The winners get Pocky.

Oh, yeah...  I remember that...

I can talk to her next week at Van Con.  I'm planning on going to that.  If she can't, I know someone who has a button maker, as well, who might let us use it, as well as the Kumoricon one.  (Though I'm thinking that both sides might be using theirs during the con...).

So, a bit of an update!

I haven't received word yet on whether or not this panel has been approved or not, or any other panels, for that matter.  However, I do believe that this one will be accepted!  I have asked a couple of people to join me as co-hosts, as well.  We will be meeting soon-ish to begin planning things out.

YAY!!!

Oh man, I regret not going to the forum meet up panel in 2010 but I remember that it was set kinda late at night and I wasn't staying at the hotel so I had to leave early and wasn't able to go. But I am so going this year! [even if I'm not a prominent member of the forum society XD]

As for making buttons of everyone avatars, I know that I change my avatar A LOT so I think just blank name tags that people could write their forum names on would be fine. :/

^ Actually, I've been thinking more and more about the name tag idea, as well.  I could see some people complaining about it "harming their cosplays" or something like that, but it'd be faster and cheaper.

Oh, hey, that's a good point, too!  I didn't even think about that.  In that case, maybe we ought to look at getting multiple-colored markers or sharpies, or something.

I have a wicked abundance of colored sharpies but I would be afraid of them getting stolen :/ and sharpies can be expensive. Maybe just some normal children's markers would work better.

That works. Or if people want, they can bring their own sharpies and just make sure they keep them to thsemselves and not let anyone use them freely. So people can keep track of thing.

We could also do a sort of "Who's that pokemon" game, but with facts about the people coming to the panel, like maybe show something along the lines of "This member of the forum's favorite number is 33 and her name means 'stalking wolf'" which, the answer would be me.
I dunno, its just a thought. I thought it might be fun.
