I don't think you neccessarily need anything to bribe people with, sometimes just hosting it and people bringing things is good enough.  Although I guess you're too young for booze and such :P

the cake has been adopted and will probably have a new home [in someone's] belly. --- with that behind me.

again i recommend a gathering of some type involving giving ppl food. or maybe a good movie...
Say Ninja Assassin   or Sherlock Holmes ?

assuming your not crazy, socially awkward, or a creepy fanboy- then I'll assume you have the ability to make friends.
oh wait. I'm already all those things. :P

if that was directed to me then....you caught me.>.>
jk. :D
i wouldn't mind going out if it matches my availabilities.And it's not like i won't mind watching those movies.

Easiest way to make friends when you're 19 is at school. Join a club or something. And you shouldn't really be so picky as to not make friends with people older than you. If you really don't have ANY friends here at all just roll with it and take what you can get.

Hey there! I'm in the East Side of San Jose, and it's always wonderful to meet other cosplayers. I have few friends with shared interests myself, so I know how tough it can be. If I meet your non-creeper criteria, please feel free to contact me. (That goes for anyone reading this as well. c: )

East side san jose? thats preposterous!

I've been hanging out and chilling out here [east side san jose] for many years.... probably before you were born.  

I call shenanigans!  :D

i have no cosplays skills, and even if i did, im not very photogenic, though my roommates are into visual K, EGL and random forms of Lolita which in their minds is fashion NOT cosplay... but thats a whole other debate.

as for me im still getting ready for my black friday adventures.

Or maybe we could have a mini movie gathering and watch Disney/Pixars  UP  at my place or something.

you guys talk a big game of meeting up and hanging out - but no one is a person of action... yet :P

oh and dont forget that the Fanime Staff meeting is Sunday Nov 22 at SJ Marriott at Salon III - fanime staff is the BEST ppl to make friends with!!!

wink wink ;)

Many of us aren't shy.Its just that many meetings happened when we are working that day or at school.And their have been times when no one has shown up.

Well hope you find some friends here or with other endeavours.

See if your high school/college has an anime or game club.


If you or ANYONE wants to chat, hit me up on AIM @ abcbadcat

Stop crying for attention, and attempting to deter the OP from trying to get a gathering together. Just because whatever you tried to do didn't work, doesn't mean you need to destroy other people's chances of hosting a group.


I would hold a gathering, but I have nothing to bribe people with Xp

With an attitude like that you'll get nowhere. Just find something interesting to do that can involve a bunch of people who are not familiar with each other to still have fun.

I do not see how you would think my post is a Mikey post at all, being that I'm warning you to stop doing what you're doing (as a moderator), still whining about no one coming to your gatherings. We get it, no one came. Drop it. This is now an official warning to stop talking about your past experiences with failure of attendees to your gatherings in this section. I'm tired of it, and I'm sure everyone else is too.

Sorry Sukebe but I'm gonna have to agree with Mizuki here.  Comparing Mizuki to Mikey is really uncalled for.

Hey I dont claim to be an expert with hosting gatherings and you have a freedom to show your concerns for a lack of attention or accept the fact that not all gatherings can be successful. There are FAR MORE social outlets beside this just ONE MESSAGE BOARD.

I technically only know a handful of ppl from these boards myself but reason why I or other like me have a good reputation is because we're INVOLVED with Fanime by being staff members, ppl know is in person, in real life, and they choose to hang out with us after several meetings/interactions with us.

I suggest you go to a fanime meeting yourself and make friends in person before you assume that ppl can just randomly meet you without a prior exposure to you considering that you do have a tendency to assume to worse of ppl just because they choose not to go your gathering or do not respond to EVERY post you have.

The world is a big place, so accept it. Kthanks.
