I'd agree with that John. I lived in the "plook on the plinth 2005" Cumbernauld rolleyes.gif until starting High School, and hated it! Glasgow ain't as bad, but it ain't good either. wink.gif

All towns have their good areas and not so good areas - there are scary people in Edinburgh too! The places where its "dangerous" in Glasgow aren't the type of places HSN folk would be likely to visit anyway.

I think it should be decided on what's most convenient for the largest number of people instead of bashing cities, they all have their nice areas. thumbsup.gif

& Dudes, if you's really are going to have a meet-up, whatever you do do not post the venue of it on the actual forum (maybe even don't advertise what city/town it's in either).

You's probably aren't daft enough to do that anyway, but I've heard horror stories* happening with regards to meet-ups of other forums so I thought I'd say.


*Okay, maybe not horror stories, but un-invited non-members lurking around rather creepily. It's unlikely to happen with a forum this wee, but you never know.

Fully agree!! I could be bad news for HSN if this isn't done in a mature, organised fashion. I suggest someone arranges it and send this info through personal message or email. Only invite regulars to the forum. Not newbies like me lol. I could be anyone for all you know lol.

Right, how about we all agree on a date for the meet? That way we can make up a list of people that will definitely be able to go.

Maybe then we could get a private (passworded) forum created and the password PM'ed out to those that say they can go. That's probably as private as it can be kept on the forum.

Well, a passworded forum takes about 30 seconds to create and automatically logs each topic and post, and it is reliable. And it's easier to get everyone to vote on everything. Adding each other on MSN pretty much destroys that.
