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
,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?

I've met 15-18 VBers. I don't remember the exact figure. That's a much lower number than some here.

BTW, I'm moving your thread to the Veggie Patch.

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.

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.

Oh. Well I'm hairy from the neck down. Heh heh.

What did you say to make them call you that?

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.

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.

I forgot to add this to my post earlier.

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.
