    Let's go forum camping

    I think this could be fun. It's like a "flash mob" but we just go to other sites to look around. The idea:

    - We choose a site (kirupa, ultrashock, any other forum) and sign up for it
    - Then we somebody creates "The Flashkit thread" and we spend all day there posting about random stuff (as we usually do here).
    - Then we leave. We could do this once a month, just to go "camping" and get to know other sites.

    What do you think?

    nah, virtual camping sounds about as interesting as twitter.
    No longer a Flashkit mod, not even by stealth

    Insanity is just a point of view. After all, the world looks pretty normal through your own underpants.

    Do it! Might have to be more subtle though.

    What forums shall we visit?

    Do you make it perfectly clear where we came from and we're only staying for a day?

    I think it would be more entertaining to not make any indication and to carry on as if nothing unusual is taking place. See how long it takes a "local" to piece together the clues and trace it back to FK.

    I predict tears before bedtime.

    How would you guys react here if something like that happened in the Lounge?

    Where are we going to first then?

    We need to coordinate time zones... Are we mostly US/Europe?
    This Friday works quite well...

    as long as the newcomers start an official thread, I wouldn't have a problem.
    We would be respecting any forums laws, so there should be no reason to bother people. It'd be random, probably a bit confusing, but the intentions is to go camping an just change environments for a bit.

    Regarding usernames, I'd use the same if available, so we know who's fk and who's not.

    Suggested forums:
    forums.isteroids. com (Steroids)
    serebiiforums. com (pokemon)
    trekbbs. com (star trek)
    idolforums .com (american idol)
    boards.theforce .net (star wars)

    Time: I'm on a -5 timezone.
    Not sure if we can coordinate so we go at the same time. Maybe we just start a thread and post there for one day or two.

    Maybe we can start a thread with something related to the forum, but a bit off. For example, in the american idol forum, we could start a thread like "contestant a and contestant b are dating", or in the star trek "I heard there's going to be a new star trek game for the atari 2600". Then we hijack our own thread with random stuff.

    I suggest we maintain FK posting rules and keep our usernames (or homonyms of them) so we know who each other is.

    I'm sure RoyalLogue is available at any forum you choose.

    Good Idea and sounds like it will be fun.
    People will figure out it is flashkit behind it and start camping here.
