    A while ago, someone had proposed the idea of having a in-person large group meet up of VMBers. Logistics were debated, ideas were thrown around but nothing ever really took shape. Tonight it hit me....we should have a VIRTUAL meetup. From the comforts of your living room, utilizing the VMB chat room here on the site.

    From the statistics page, I see the most members ever was 17. I think we can beat that, don't you guys?

    Thoughts?

    Virtual VMB Meetup!

    Sounds like a good idea. I'm surprised no one ever uses the chat room, I don't think I've ever seen it indicate someone using it.

    I would be up for that. Be fun to have some crazy chat time and share some wild Las Vegas stories. I will buy the first round, hee hee!

    Only 17? That surprises me. Back when this place was a chatterbox I'd swear the number was much higher than that. Sonya, Scott, was there perhaps a numeric reset at some point?

    P.S.

    Choose a midweek night with no sports and a high likelihood of widespread drinking!

    If we're going to have all this company in the chat room... maybe I need to clean the place up a bit. Or at least hide the porn? :poke:

    I believe that number was much higher at one time. 38 or something?

    Sure. We'd be up for it. Sounds like fun.

    Midweek sounds like a good idea too. And of course the widespread drinking is almost mandatory.

    We need to appoint some cocktail servers and a bartender. :drunk:

    A few years ago T2V chat was a lively part of this board. And, it got to be a crowded room with all the bantering. Often, every night of the week.
    Indeed, there was a virtual community in play, filled with a colorful and friendly cast, And, of course, loads of sexual innuendo
    Many of the principal players have faded away; though, some still make an occasional visit to this board.
    In today's world of cyber turnover, we're already into a different generation of T2V movers and shakers.
    Nothing will ever replace those good old days when chat was king around here. The again, that's coming from a crusty old timer, probably even two generations removed from new crop of posters.

    When I first signed up on the board, I used the chat and it had 4 people in it. I am not sure how we got that many.

    Chat rooms were pretty cool. I wonder when they faded. I would be down for a virtual meetup. It would be hilarious.

    I remember we reset the count at some point. I think SH0CK is right that it was somewhere in the upper 30's.

    Please do increase that number. :) We haven't done an upgrade to that chat room in a looooooooong time since it wasn't really being used. If there are problems with it let me or SH0CK know and we can put some work into it.

    I'd love to drop into a virtual meet. I keep a bottle of Goose in my desk drawer for just such an occasion. :wink2:

    We used to be in the Chat Room all the time a few years ago. The night we had 17 members online was fun.

    Here's a couple suggestions:

    Sign in way before the actual time so you can get use to using it.

    When there's a lot of members in there, it's hard to know if someone is talking to you or someone else so be patient.

    Also, from now on let's try to use Vegas time as a standard.
