I do know there is great potential for a NYC meetup.  I can name like 6 pixelation folk right off the top of my head over there.  if you guys would like to organize a simultaneous event, that'd be pretty cool...   or maybe I could just fly down there and forget this san fran idea :P

I changed and reset the poll to get a better idea of where we're at.   Revote, guys.

Aw, still no Melbourne. Is there a tool around here somewhere that shows where most of us are from country wise? Might be easier to work things out that way. For all we know, 70% of members might be in Toledo.

Pixel Joint map - Yes, I know this isn't Pixel Joint :P but I'm pretty sure most people here have a PJ account anyway.

(Also, the map tells me that there's only 1 person from Toledo. Heh.)

Golly. There are hundreds of Aussies. Thousands of Americans, sure, but hundreds of aussies. 103 of us in Melbourne, even. :D

Maybe the most success might be had if one was done in the UK - smallest region to travel in with biggest number of people (7k), vs California with only 1k.

This American-European polarization would clearly call for two seperate meetup groups. But, based on the small number of votes, I'd say the idea may be a non-starter.

I could perhaps attend a european meet, we could have some live pixelling and critique and stuff. Also, blood sacrifice to the lords below.

Well, we have a handful of pixel artists in The Netherlands, some from France (Fil_razorback?). And then there's the Germans (Ptoing, Dennis Busch), Austrians (Miascugh), etc.

We could have a cool meetup somewhere in that neighbourhood. I can host one in Brussels (or rather 20 minutes from Brussels), as I'm involved in a local youth pub here. I can easily book it for a day or even two.

If someone else has a better location, I'm open for it of course.
