    No, I've met a couple of people from this site, for trades and such, and they've all been pretty cool.

    Actually yes. I was at Botcon 2004 (at least I think thats what it was) and I noticed by overhearing a loud conversation that a guy that was talking was staff/a mod here. Unfortunately, I was in a bit of a rush and didn't have the time for a proper introduction/conversation. I'm also admittedly not a very good social person and was a bit nervous, so I continued about my business. I feel bad that I didn't say anything after the fact though. :(

    I've met Asquian, VF-XX, Sidecutter, and DeeJay. All were pretty cool. I hang with Asquian regularly.

    Let's see...

    My first BotCon, I shared a room with Shin-Gouki, having never met him. No regrets.

    My second BotCon, I shared a room with Tony B, DESTRO, Alvarez, SSJ Rodimus, Primus, Jux (who I lived with anyways), and that might have been it. But I had chatted with them BRIEFLY at BotCon 2002, but fucking might as well have had relations with them by the time 2003 was done.

    After that, no, I jump right in and make a fool out of myself.

    The first time I met Tim Formas, he humped me in front of a crowd of people on an escalator. Again, no regrets. That's just the way it goes. Some of the people here are the best friends I could ever ask for. Now, if this was the AllSpark, I'd say be afraid... ;)

    I'd be nervous meeting you guys, as I'm shy at first, but eventually I'd be humping Kickback with the best of em

    Hopefully next Botcon I'll finally get the chance to bump asses with some of you guys

    I'd be more worried about people meeting me, im the kind of guy who screams and gives a big hug upon introduction.

    It'd be interesting...dunno, I've met people out in the world I've met through other sites, and that went all right. It was more a case of "Oh, hey, I kinda know you, but now I really sort of do".

    I am very shy, so yeah I would be really nervous.

    I have met a few though, and one I knew before the boards and then told him to join and found out he was already a member.

    I hope to meet you all at a Botcon eventually though.

    Jesus. I swear as I was browsing the threads, I caught this one peripherally and I thought it was "Who's the best swallower at TFW?"

    Something's very wrong with me :(
