    While reading through all these threads about arrival days, get-togethers, parties, and other events... this just hit me: How are we going to find/contact/stay in touch with each other once we're all in Indianapolis? We're all arriving at different times on different days and are staying in different places.

    Any ideas?

    Well some of us could exchange cell phone numbers. That worked out pretty good at DragonCon when we met up with the Hothlanta Rebels, not to mention that's how we kept track of each other with such a large place...lol

    Maybe not post the numbers out in the public, but send PM.

    Once we have hotel rooms assigned, we can phone each other by name and room #. Also, there's supposed to be some sort of bulletin board in the "member's lounge" for the purpose of people posting notes about meeting up.

    We will also have a Fanforce table where everyone can meet.

    Yeah, the FF table should end up being party central.

    There's been some talk of name tags and such on starwars.com boards (and here, I think...). I think I'll go ahead and make a badge with my pic of me & Chewie on it.

    Look for me! :D

    Yeah, I really hope somebody runs with the name badge idea. If I was better with graphic design, I'd work something up pretty fast. Something like the headers/borders of the Jedi Council Forums around a little rectangle of white where we could print our usernames would work just fine.

    Vadersfist,
    DUDE!! YOU ROCK!! Thanks for advertising my little nametags that I'd made. It seems to be catching on both in here and on the SW forums. I printed mine up today and lamintated it at Kinko's. (I put each picture on opposite side, and it looks REALLY good!)

    For those who haven't checked it out, here's the link to my webpage for the nametags that I made up. Hope you all like them.

    I think name tags are a great Idea.


    The fanforce table may be party central but we need more people to sign up to man/woman it.

    TFN should get one of their people to make a name tag with

    User Name(TFN User name)
    Real Name
    and Planet (hotel in another thread)

    And a nice TheForce.net logo, just put it somewhere so people like us can print it out on sticker paper and put it on our costumes or clothes. This would also help with the FanForce party, then we could see who is what user and see what all of you look like.

    I know that I'm going to make up some business cards on my computer that have my hotel and room # printed on them. Should make things a little easier, rather than trying to write down my information to a bunch of different people.

    Fan Force table should be the hub for meeting people, but also keep in mind in the "Fan Club Lounge" there will be a bulletin board for people to pin notes and what not for other people. That will probably be pretty cluttered with non-FF people, so it's probably still best to use the FF table.

    *coughsFanForcePartycoughs*

    Yeh I'd say that the Fan Force table would be the best place to meet up, honestly.

    Use the Force Moff.... ;)


    Nah, but seriously... I think the FanForce Party(which I will be attending) will be a great way to meet others who post here!

    There are always cell phones and room #'s, but roaming charges are expensive sometimes. Anjie, Jason & I are all bringing our little Motorola Walkie talkies. You know the ones that have like a 2 mile radius and you can put on one of many different channel. Well, for anyone else bringing one, we can have a preset channel, like 12.5 and we can be in contact in the hotel and during the celebration. I will have a few extras to loan out as well. Just a thought!

    Well I've only been posting here since March (sadly I only recently discvered this site, which I now find hard to believe since it's so immense) but I hope that I too can be welcomed with open arms as I meet a lot of you guys/girls. The FanForce table does sound like a good place to meet up with people and coordinate things. But honestly, the closer it gets to May, the more intimidated I become. Obviously I'm excited, but DAMN! 35+ celebrities/actors now?!? GOOD LORD!! ::poops pants in anticpation::

    Not a smart idea to post your phone # on a public forum.
