    That's 20 days in advance.
    That's true, but not everybody reads the Chit Chat forum. Just by coincidentally browsing this forum I discovered this thread myself actually.

    Since I can imagine more Dutch people are not aware of it I decided to send a PM to all members of the Dutch iDeal Social Group today. Things like this need to be promoted...

      It's not an official vBulletin gathering. So there's no need for Marco to promote it any further than making a thread in the chit chat forum.

        It was well on time then, but since there's still a lack of concrete plans it's a bit short notice now. I know I'm not going to plan my saturday evening based on a "it might be a fun idea to".

        Sorry Marco, but I'm afraid I won't be able to make it, so much stuff to do it's not even funny anymore (that, and a mere evening is a bit short to make it worth for me to travel to Amsterdam. Ahwell).

        Fun idea though, I've wanted something like this for a while now

          I was not addressing to him, Floris. I just stated -including a smiley- that promoting would be good, so I did that. This helps people noticing this thread. That's why the last posters are chiming in now, because of the PM I send.

          Next to that, we still need a time and place. Makes planning a lot easier

            Marco,

            I don't want to be nagging , but I just received a PM from a dutch customer (in reaction to my PM) that he's not coming because (amongst other reasons) of his impression that only 2 (?) members are coming. I was wondering the same : how many people are coming, in other words : does this event even take place with this apparent lack of interest?

            And how are we supposed to plan anything if there's no information concerning the actual place in A'dam and the definitive time? I'm sorry, but this makes it impossible for me to plan this properly. There's only 2 days left.

              I think it's best to just reschedule this for a later date. Again, I'd love to meet my fellow Dutch vB owners, but I'd rather like a big party instead of only 5-6 people. If Marco needs help in organizing I love to offer my (limited) time.

                i think it will take part regardless, with vb members there or not.

                  Aha, well then it would have been handy if this was made clear from the start. Tomorrow is the 14th and I think this idea of a dutch meeting is great, so I am enthusiastic to attend. But I don't know if I can make it now, because we have not received information on the location and definitive time.

                    I did try to sent out an email to all that showed interest a few days ago, but i found that sitting in my "Concepts" folder and it was never sent.

                    I have again sent the details by PM to everyone now.

                      Thanks for your PM - unfortunately I can't be there.
                      That's the end of that!

                        It turns out that The Milky Way is just around the corner of the place where the Dutch vB meeting is being held. So... I will be there!

                            We had a great time last night. I particularly enjoyed the 10 minutes that we actually got to speak Dutch We pushed hard and even tried a tequilla slammer (with scotch I think), but Mike and Scott stood firm and refused to lay out the plans for vB4 or make a commitment on iDeal

                            Marco proved himself an excellent representative: all vBulletin customers still present at midnight received this wonderful souvenir

                              The English drink a lot more than us Dutch guys, you need at least 3 hours of shots in order to get info out of them.
