Did Spazzy McGee just give out friendly internet safety advice??? That's weird...

That's fairly common. The thing is, this topic wants to know who you know. It's a pointless waste of time to tell us that you know people, and then not tell us the actual callsigns of the people you know.

The only player I know personally is my dad "the wild Finn".

I would enjoy meeting numerous players, from public, but mainly GU players - as the community is a little more restricted. I'm open to meeting anyone though - just let me know...I'm in Oklahoma. :)

I've unfortunately never met any bzplayers in real life... other than my siblings which I got into playing bzflag & since then they have discontinued :|
It would be awesome to have some sort of "BZ Conference" every so often :wink:
But we all know that would be a TON of work.

I think New York would be a good place to have something like a BZconference. Maybe at the marriot :D

It could be a whole event. I wouldn't be able to organize it but I could help

•Booking a room/suite/something
•Inviting
•Buying refreshments
•Making an agenda
•Making a time

Well, I guess its not that big of a deal of who would organize it but who would come?
I know for sure that at my current financial state (broke) :wink: I wouldn't be able to attend...

Not really... about 9-10 hours away from each other. I was just in his area for business so we thought it would be a good way to meet.

Letsee, my two brothers play, but neither one is registered, and they're always changing their callsigns. Two of my friends play, "a tank full of holes" and "Beowulf" but I'm pretty sure they're not registered either. So that makes me at four :D

I know a schoolmate "Sythe" , and his brother (I don't know his callsign as he changed it recently). I've introduced it to countless others, but most of them won't even try it.

I know! I've done the same thing, and I hate it when people shun the game because it's graphics aren't as advanced as other games.

Most of them think I'm addicted to it ever since I got a T-shirt. Most of them won't consider even looking at it, plus they've never heard of it.
