Ever met a fellow wiki member "in the wild"?
« on: February 18, 2018, 01:15:04 PM »
That is to say, have you ever encountered a wiki member off-wiki, without intentionally looking for them? I'm curious what people's stories are about this.

Not without intentionally scheduling a meeting, no.

I also expect the probability for this to happen to be rather slim tbh

If you mean on the internet, then Iíve seen FtG64 and Nanorim in a few YouTube comment sections.

If you mean in real life, then no I havenít.

Yeah I never met any user from here anywhere. That would be cool, though!

Nah, actually, and thatís very unlikely to happen. Well, in real life, but I can expect on the internet.

But who knows, maybe once.

I've unintentionally found a couple of people on Deviantart, and a couple of YouTube comment sections, but offline, no.

On other forums, yes. In person, no, though I have intentionally met 4 people on here.

If you want to count people you've bumped into in real life who then went ahead and joined the wiki, yes. Other than that no I haven't met anyone in real life, and if I did it would require intentional scheduling.

I've seen random Youtube comments from users if we're referring to other internet places.

"without intentionally looking for them"?

even if this did happen, how the *bleep* would you even know who it was? I don't exactly wear my username on my shirt or anything. I think the only way you would know it was me is if you saw my Awards Presentations and were ridiculously good at recognizing voices.

Wiimm is a Mario Kart Wii hacker who made a few edits on MarioWiki. Was surprised to meet him here.

RoadrunnerWMC, one of the hackers of the New Super Mario Bros. games also has an account on MarioWiki. Dropped by to say hello of course.

Some people on Marioboards I first met on GameFAQs. Examples are Mcmadness, memoryman3, and Swiftie_Luma.

I also saw Magikrazy's comment on a YouTube video one time. It was highly uprated.

I have seen your work on Square Root of Minus Garfield, so it's actually quite cool to see that someone who did some stuff there also posts here.

Asides that, some people from here I have seen on Youtube, like NanoRim (one of the comments on the Final Boss theme in Mario vs Donkey Kong) and I think Fawful.

Thank you for reading.

I believe I've seen FTG64 in a YouTube comments section. Other than that all I've had is a scheduled get together (hopefully another one in the future) and following people on Twitter.

FTG64 is very active outside of these boards, I've talked to him on Reddit before (Although, I have a different username there so I'm not sure he knows it was me) and I look at his deviantart posts fairly often.
