I would be really tempted to attend this if it gets approved. I'm looking for a girlfriend with similar interests and I think this would help(I sound really lame right now haha) if anything, might get a few friends out of it at the very least.

Hm this sounds interesting. I'll attend if it gets approved.

I'm interested to see how this turns out. Speed-dating is more appealing to me than con skanks.


If you attended the 18+ Q/A panel with Todd, Eric, and Leah, then you'd know that it was DEFINITELY NOT family-friendly.

Eric Vale told me to sleep with someone.

Who needs speed-dating when you've got me? I'll be your Mako whenever you need me ;)

EDIT:Something like a mixer would probably be the simplest way of pulling this off. Maybe arrange for drinks/snacks to be available. The only issue I forsee is that, sadly, most nerdy people are shy, and that won't fly! (Heh, I rhymed)

NERDS OF THE CON, DON'T BE AFRAID TO GO TALK TO SOMEONE. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! BELIEVE IN THE ME THAT BELIEVES IN YOU! YOUR CHARM IS THE CHARM THAT WILL PIERCE THE HEAVENS! GIGA...CHARM...BREEEEEEEEEAAAKKKEEERRRRR!

(I for one am excited for this. I think that, if done properly, it could be a really fun time! Plus, I'm more than happy to help organize/DJ it)

I'm looking to see if anyone would help co-host this with me if it really works out, so feel free to send me a message if you'd really be interested. :)

Mmm, baby, totally. Fighting the Geth is totally the most romantic thing I've ever done. :lol:

And, towards your second part/edit, I think that that's why the idea of this is fantastic! All nerds are going to be in an EXTREMELY relaxed and friendly environment, so those walls people put up are going to be gone. Even if they aren't all that outgoing even in the hallways of AZ. This panel can be a place for guys and gals to practice their flirting and get something even more out of it.

As a member of team Rainbow, I plan to wear some sort of rainbow bracelet or something to show which team I play for. Less to deter men and more to attract teh ladies. (Teh is intentionally misspelled in this context).

I'll fight the Geth with you anytime, anywhere.

Various means of identification have been discussed, including stickers, unicorn horns, rainbow lasers, and for some reason neon signs...

While this panel WILL be LGBT friendly, we'd like to deter any accidental flirting that could make people uncomfortable. More details will be released closer to the con itself, assuming the panel is even approved.

If, for some reason, it isn't, then we'll just arrange for our own meet-up! With Blackjack! And hookers! You know what...just forget the meet-up part...

Perhaps just something like a sticker? Something tasteful to identify ourselves and not rainbow lasers. You know, if I were to hit on a stright guy, he could just say "I like girls" then I would get the picture

I think we should have some ice-breaking games as well, so that we can have some fun and get to know eachother better before heading out into AZ.

Last year there was a pre-con meetup that flopped pretty sadly. (I had bought pizza and everything...then nobody showed up...so I gave away pizzas all weekend) Something similar SHOULD be happening this year, and HOPEFULLY it doesn't flop this time.

I met some pretty special people at the one last year, that's for true.

Yeah, my meetup was pretty bad. I learned my lesson about posting an event listing on Facebook. :P If I do one this year, it's gonna be real low-key.

Even though back in Oct I mentioned I wouldn't go to this, I might pop in to see how this goes. If it happens.

With my terrible love life, I'm hoping that this thing will work.
I still say we should have ice breaker games, or something of the sort so we can get to know one another. I think that this panel could make many happy couples if executed properly.

I offered $200 cash to get Leah's shirt off. That was the best panel ever. Just had to mention that.

Also, the mixer is a pretty good idea. I'm just glad I won't have to keep trying to guess if the ladies are legal.

My problem about even thinking about going to this is that I know I'll be the oldest person there...and that will make it look like I'm desperate and...yeah.....

You'll be like the chaperone. For legal, consenting adults. Not awkward at all. :D

I'll find some people to make a pass at you. Dress nice, and get a luxury watch. It'll make selling the Sugar Daddy angle easier. ;)

Never did find that room key either, must have lost it in the mad dash to the table.

First year to go to AZ, and already interested in the random panels, and seeing how it seems like im broken when it comes to relationships, I may be giving this a spin.
