    Today we will tackle about two agendas, while nominating/voting please state your opinion why'd you choose that specific person/changes.

    First Agenda:
    Should we have nominations every month for the host?

    Second Agenda:
    Please nominate five (5) forumers who'd you wanted and capable of hosting the meetup.
    As the owner of the thread, please exclude me from the nominations.

    Ideal Host

    • Open-minded and must have a long patience
    • Approachable
    • Wide imagination for concepts
    • Atleast knows the basic rules of a meetup
    • Hospitable and must know to manage their time.


    Nominees- Vote Count

    After the nomination, a poll will be created. The nomination will last on January 22, 2020.
    ngl this is stupid (not the answers to the agendas)
    1) why do we nominate people when in fact anyone can practically host a meetup themselves
    2) there's no official official here

    and ok let's say there's a host that ppl nominated and i hosted a meetup
    wat would happen to me

    answers to the agendas
    1) no nominations should be done
    2) viju
    It's time to remove VIJU TIME on our siggys.

    Sorry, I wasn't specific. I was referring to the Monthly meetup, also the (nomination thing) if they suit or capable of hosting the monthly meetup. You've got a point also, I had to admit that and I respect it.

    This thread caught to my attention.

    During the 2014-2015, meetups where hosted - yes; but not to the point that there were people challenging each other wHO MadE THe BeSt MeEtUp. every meetup was different which made it fun - including but not limited to, lock worlds, building contests and so on. More so, it certainly was not forced, whoever wants to host a meetup will host a meetup. I don't know how meetups became mandatory, they're literally getting so old because it feels forced. These nominations will just hurt other people's feelings - making them feel like they're useless.

    TL;DR: Let people who wants to host, host. Fights for who has the better meetups is absurd. These nomination threads may hurt other people. Don't make meetups forced.

    Way back then, forum meetups served as a get-together with various activities. For e.g. a small locked world only then the rest is history, spleefs inside, quizzes, puzzles, a certain topic to discuss with, and many more. It is a day setted to meet those who were chatting on forums but haven't meet each other yet in-game.

    To mention a few more characteristics of the past forum meetups, by the end of the day they've known each other. Maybe one to three players was out of placed but still they've known each other. No one feels left out way back then, they were all getting along as one.

    I'm slightly off topic here, but I have a similar view with viju.

    I feel the irregularity of the past forum meetups made it more enjoyable. Having a monthly meetup made it into something common, which took out the sparkle of meeting your fellow forumers for special occasions. I really dislike all these monthly meetups, and I honestly think there should only be some huge meetups hosted on special occasions like the end or beginning of the year. After chem made it into a monthly affair, it became a power struggle between who could take over and host a better meetup, where in my opinion, its all to consolidate some sort of forum reputation and to become popular. In the end, the forums seemed to become polarised into a few sects, where several sects may quite possibly engage in raiding meetups and finding faults about it. I rarely attend these meetups, but that's just me being cynical.

    Anyway, for more relevance about this topic, why are we nominating people to host an "official" monthly meetup? The people nominated may not even want any part to do with this. This "official hoster" is also unable to control the thoughts of others planning to host meetups, nor are they able to stop others from hosting their own meetups. Furthermore, if you do wish for an official hoster to be elected each month, does this mean you plan to set up a committee to host these elections each month?

    I understand that you may want some cohesiveness in a monthly forum meetup, while setting aside my dislike of this monthly uneventful event, however, the only two parties struggling to gather more supporters for their meetups and causing this mess would be Forumer's United by Toby and Forumer's Base. I daresay that you two should resolve this by yourself, and try collaboration to ensure a system is held.

    I personally feel that this thread, calling forumers to try and fix this conflict between two spheres of influence, is unecessary and just dragging people into a mess. Eventually, supporters from both sides will each respectively vote for their own leaders, and this thread will lose its meaning as it turns into a battle of who can muster more supporters.

    I'd rather have many monthly random (not just every Saturday), events that anyone can host, and anyone who wants to attend, can attend.

    So no specific hoster.

    Default When will we have a United Forum?

    Sorry, but you all are clowns.

    This whole situation just reminds me of the time back then when the Forum was split in half. The Forum community now and back then still seemed to be split in half ( nothing seems to change ). This will only lead to hatred and toxicity, trust me ( which is happening already ).

    Either fix it or don’t. Do you all really want to end this on a sour note? Are each of you guys just hoping for one to just die off? What’s the point? All you guys are doing is tearing the community slightly apart. It may not be as noticeable to some ( it was really noticeable when I was preparing my party), but I will say that I always bear in mind FORUMERSUNITED and FORUMERBASE.

    It may not be easy, but it is for the best.

    In my opinion, is understandable that you may want more controlled meetups but that doesn't mean it is a good idea, this thread is unnecessary because in reality is just a conflict between two parties. From little more than half a year the point of meetups had changed and instead of forumers to have a good time together and create new friendships, these meetups have turned into who can make a better meetup and who is able to get more supporters on their side, who can break the other's reputation more better, which is more or less dividing forumers in more parties, which defeats the whole purpose of those activities, and bonus and create a lot of toxicity which is not needed at all, and until these parties fix their own conflicts that they want to 'expose' to us, the only way to escape this never ending vicious circle is to stop attending. And about creating a vote each month to nominate someone, you can not force somebody to host meetups just because for the sole reason that others want it, or you can not prevent other forumers from having their own either.

    These way too often meetups makes them really boring and repetitive and became same routine every meetup, which inevitably made it too common, on the other hand, having them more rarely and on special occasions would make more forumers attend them and be more meaningful to others while also making them feeling less repetitive and boring with nothing to do except just being there for the sake of being there.

    Don't make any voting's in this. I definitely don't want see any competitions in meetups. I want that we appreciate every forumer who just host meetups. I don't want see that someone feels bad cause no one votes them. So better not make any voting in this.

    Default gotta agree with kyeosi

    it's time you and toby put your past differences behind and start working together on merging FB and FU together.

    i'm sick of seeing this drama and fights all the time between the two communities and i'm not the only one.

    this would be a pretty big move to bring the forums more together and it's a necessary move.

    While merging is an option, going that far is not extremly needed, hence fu is simply a discord server just like many others out there, plus toby is pretty much the only involved in this, what is really needed cease this fight for popularity, dramas and who host the meetups better and to solve the existing conflicts.
