I have a question that I am really unsure about... I was browsing a board of one of my favorite bands and discovered that most of the members had actually met each other <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:">,like after they began posting for a while (I don't know how long). I want to know if this is a regular thing, like if people really actually meet each other when they are active members on a board somewhere... how do they do that? Is this a common thing for boards to do, to make real-life friends with each other after a long time of posting? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:">

I've met 15-18 VBers. I don't remember the exact figure. That's a much lower number than some here.<br><br><br><br>
BTW, I'm moving your thread to the Veggie Patch.

I hope to meet some VBers someday, especially my fellow SFPers and a few others. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Unfortunately, there are some I will never meet.

I've never met anyone off of here, but on a board for a band that I've been on for about three years I've met about 10 of the people on there, and some of them I meet up quite regularly to go shopping in London or something.<br><br><br><br>
I don't think it's something every board does, I'm on others and haven't met anyone, it just depends how things go and how friendly you are with the other members.

I've met a few people from boards. Maybe a few more in the near future. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

OOH LIKE ME! Except i'm broke. And a nonbeliever. That's okay, though, right? We can still play monopoly and stuff.</div>

Sure, and I promise not to smack you with my Bible. Let me gather up my Amish buddies and we'll hop on our wagon and be at your place in 3 weeks. Then you can amaze us with your indoor plumbing and microwave.<br><br><br><br>
I'm broke too. I blame student loans and the fact that things cost money. Where in Michigan is you? Maybe I can swim over so we can play some strip scrabble.<br><br>

I don't know if it's common, but I have experienced it. I have become very close with a small handful of individuals on this boards, and I am forever grateful. They are true friends.
