I still vote for the cruise.
Imagine the discount.

One west coast and one east coast.



Harassment would not be an issue anymore than other singles cruise.

I have always wanted to go to Nova Scotia, but I must admit--not in February.


Where's your sense of adventure - and besides, the hotels are dirt cheap in February.

I did this ... once. It was a local forumite reunion ... everyone posted with eachother. When I met one male forumite in public he thought we were "friends". He stalked me constantly on POF. He sent endless novels in e-mail. I had to block him and he flipped out and created a profile trashing me. He was banned from POF for 2 years.

Its ok ... I'll read the newsletter ...

Couldn't access DameRight's profile but it sounds amazing. Also sounds like Van Island too.


Anyone should be able to access my profile, strange. (oh, unless you've messaged others for intimate encounters lol).

Really though, I wonder why.

I think they where referring to it being hidden and them not knowing they have to log into view it.

No can do, I have to wash my hair that day.



How is the 25th of never at quarter after for everyone?

Hey how about a cruise around Hawaii? That kills 2 birds with one stone!

Well no matter where, count me in! I'll be there with bells on.

I'll even throw in some entertainment for all my fans(hahaha), I will go into the dunk tank, for all to throw balls at. Charge a dollar a ball, and give it to charity...that gives all the conservatives reason to go, and many of the ladies who hate my posts! Come to think of it, probably a number of guys as well!

Hahahahahahaha!!!!

choices, choices Edinburgh w/ Pitts and Vlad, NovaScotia w/ Import, Groundhog day w/ cooldude, raisin money for charity while pi$$ing off PETA for stoning birds to make Oy happy. Housesitting on Saltspring w/ Adora while Dame's in Chicago. I need to go get my manicure- I always work out my biggest comundrums while being gassed w./ tuolene at the nail salon, and then I'll look clean just like Aristotle....

Vancouver would be ideal. Heard the ladies are so hot there! It's only a hop, skip, and jump from Washington State. Do they have a coinstar there? I have over $100 in Canadian change. Oh Canada...

Both of them? ;-0

That doesn't help me at all - and the East Coast is well known for hospitality.



At the ideas bouncing around and the lack of progress, another British phrase comes to mind. We "couldn't organize a p1ss-up in a brewery." Sigh.

I'll be in Saltsspring. It's the closest location to me.
What can I do? hmmmmm....
Oh! I could bake the big "Welcome POF" cake!
Each layer generously marinated in Canadian whiskey. There's my welcome to Canada for ya'.
Oh... and the cake is vegan but yummy I promise you!

*edit

Niagra Falls?
Can you imagination the temptation???

To what? Push some of these posters over the side? Hopefully I'll do it on the Canadian side. I imagine they don't have the death penalty and their prisons are kinder and gentler.

on the uk forum a meeting of forumites is also being discussed. this is what the forum moderator posted.

its on page 4


Not to be a party pooper but how exactly would you host an event like this within the event rules?
Keep in mind, as a key rule, you as a host can not collect monies to pay for expenses - in other words - you can't rent a room and then charge people a fee to take part.

Perhaps before going any further you can review the rules and then get back and clarify how and if this event would be postable on POF.

Maybe you could just host the event at a venue, and in the event thread allow users themselves to make arrangments between themselves for rooms - keeping yourself as the host out of the financial bits.

vlad...good point!

However, I wonder if POF would have a problem with other events held, that charge a door fee? I routinely get invites where a meet up, has a fee to enter.

Further if an event was held at a hotel, said hotel could provide a meeting room at "no cost", in order to get the traffic of the number of hotel rooms booked to get the event. Further many of these larger establishments, routinely provide coupons and discounts for meals and activities.

This would favor places like Vegas, Hawaii, others that have a large tourist traffic and accomodations to handle large numbers, but who's business has fallen on hard times, due to the economy.

There is usually more than one way to skin the animal!

"and um6 'skin the animal'?"

Well the cat was sitting here when I was writing that and I thought he might get upset or take offense!

"Sounds like Oy wants to host us baaaaaad in Atlanta at the driving club."

While Hotlanta has it's charms, and certainly Buckhead would have it's charms(we would see many new threads on old guys chasing hot youngins!), if I were to offer a southern choice it would be NOLA!!

NOLA, has 24/7 open bars, casinos, some of the best restaurants and food in the country, and a fab jazz scene!

Remember, it's known as "the city that care forgot"!!

But I'm good to go, where ever we decide!

Is it feasable? To organize a "meet" central to North America where POF forumites have a chance to meet face to face? It would have to be user-organized/financed, and the potential for fisticuffs and sexual harrassment would be gi-normous, but has anything similar been tried before?


Your asking for WWW3.
