I met a number of Victoria and Vancouver forumers years ago in a Vancouver SSP meetup but the only guy I ever see now is some guy who goes by the name "Dylan Leblanc"

One of these days i'll figure out his real name.

I actually got everyone drunk and had them sign a form saying so, so you're all contractually obligated to visit, preferably at the same time. Copes was here in the fall but for a wedding so we didn't get to explore at all.

____

I think I've met about two dozen forumers in Canada, the US, and Europe, and there are several more whom I feel like I've met but actually haven't (I once drove through Thunder Bay without stopping, fearing that a wild vid might appear).

Outside the one YYC meet I attended and forget who was there (I actually have a list of forumers met on my old computer, but meh), I've met Signal, Marty, Jeddy, Copes, HIMS, Architype, LFrench, staff, ColDayMan, BuckeyeNative, touraccuracy, a Rotterdam forumer I'm not super familiar with (beat42 or something like that), Swede, Wigs, 1ajs, and maybe some others. (oh! and that Halifax forumer who SHH and I met a few times)

I missed out on meeting Denscity and Surrealplaces in St. John's because I was home for holidays.

Edit: Don't know how I forgot that I met Tom Servo and Dr Taco (no longer posts) in Chicago, especially since I later ended up staying a few nights a couple years later with the former and we still talk often.

Edit 2: I have 37 Facebook friends from SSP.

I'll bet very few forumers know that nickname since it goes back to the 90's!

How many have seen the episode of Extreme Machines (I think it was that show) about skyscrapers, which mentioned "Nalyd's Skyscraper Page"? IIRC, it was the episode where they talked about the large concrete planters around the WTC as an anti-terrorism measure. (The episode was from 1999 or 2000).

Don't really know anybody, except a guy on UT, though I've had my suspicions on someone I know on Instagram and FB being an SSPer for Toronto.

I've been pretty easy to track on this site, though I may have altered my Flickr and SSP account in the last few years to bring a few red herrings here and there.

Glasscity and I have known one another since high school. I know of someone else in the Vancouver subforum too through a mutual friend of ours (though I’ve never met that person in-person).

Plus, anyone that’s been to the Ottwa SSPer’s meet definitely all had their cover blown.

I’ve been looking for this thread!
It’s only because we’ve blown Urban_Sky’s cover though.

Edit: I just saw your comment in the very thread that I was gonna link.
Like I said, trust me, it is. I looked him up.

You could have also clicked on my User name and then on “Visit Urban Sky’s website” (and I believe that I posted quite a few tables/figures/graphs with my full name as source), but I’m honoured to know that it felt like a quest to you to “blow my cover”...

I know who a number of you are, and some of you don't even know it.

Wait, that sounds creepy.

The secrets of anonymous accounts! You could say that you can “insert your name here”, if you wish your cover to be blown!

I know who Acajack and Le Calmar are, and vice versa. (Met the latter already.)

Yeah just Dengler for me that I actually know.

I met Coldsrx briefly once, but I was part of a group and I don't considered myself a notable SSP name so I didn't introduce myself. I don't feel creepy admitting this given how open he is with his identity.

Signallhillhiker and I were once on Signal Hill together at the same time, and he saw my yellow school bus

A few people I know in real life have told me they've identified me on SSP without me telling them about it. I don't know who they are though or if they have accounts, which doesn't feel very fair haha.

In general, I'll admit I'm a little anxious about my SSP identity being outed. I've said some things that diverge from polite expectations and I'd really hate to have my career ruined by some things I said about signs when I was 18
