Have you ever thought about this: you've probably walked by a fellow TamaTalker without realizing it!? We've got lots of people in the world, but there are also lots of TamaTalkers. That random stranger could actually be your best friend online! Creepy? Or cool? Regardless, this makes the world seem a lot smaller. You don't see people with Tamagotchis often, but that doesn't mean they don't have them! Is there a place in the world where TamaTalkers all write their screen names, like "Amat Gotchi wuz here; Tamagotchi 4eva!!"
Just something that struck my brain when I was traveling, reminding me not to be a jerk to random strangers because I MIGHT know them online.
Weird.
Anyone else think so?

That would be cool, it would be even cooler to organize a meeting and meet a few TamaTalkers.
Just too bad that we're all from different countries and that makes it almost impossible.

But I already see us sitting there with all our Tamas lol XDDD

This would be awesome!
Although, travel could hinder a few, so maybe meetups in placers where alot of members are?
There's a couple of main locations I've come up with;
USA
Canada
UK
Australia
NZ
That's where quite a few members are from, although I've seen the odd member from South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Asia and various places in Europe

But this seems like an amazing concept, and meetups would be awesome! c:

It would be fun, except for the whole stalker thing. :(
But theoretically, one could make a physical TamaTalk wall (one per region) and sign it (like graffiti) with one's TamaTalk screen name and state their region, with no real danger at all, unless there are most likely no TamaTalkers within a 200 mile radius of you (like my predicament: I would be easy to stalk for that reason, so I don't give ANY information).

I'm one who believes that there are no TTers in my area, but lately I've been wondering if I've seen one before. :/ Odd.
I like your idea @Amat Gotchi.
Meet ups would be awesome if it weren't for the whole "Internet Safety" thing. But we've all broken the "Don't Talk To Strangers" rule already. xD

I live in a tiny town that no one's ever heard of before, I doubt there's other TTers where I live.
I'm originally from Brooklyn, NY though, I bet there were a few in there!

That sounds like a good idea. Maybe a big TamaTalk wall could be constructed in every major region?
I think California should have its own big TT convention, being the most populous state in the U.S. and all. I already know that there's one other TTer living in the region I'm in (SF Bay Area). I don't know any other TTer living here, but I bet there's at least one other person from here.

maybe you could borrow the concept of a Tumblr meet up, or something. :)

That sounds cool but I don't think there are any TamaTalkers in the Philippines or at least just not near where I live in the Philippines. Correct me if I'm wrong, though, all Pinoy TamaTalkers (if there are any) please reply! (I don't wanna give away my address but here's a bit of information that would narrow down the search area a bit, I live in Luzon region IV-A) And if there aren't any then it would be hard for other members to visit because it's a bit far away from where you guys live.

Something I'd like to add...making a TamaTalk physical wall can be pretty easy! Just sign guest booklets at hotels and cabins (maybe even restaurants) with your TamaTalk username, mention TamaTalk (or just TT) and maybe say a few words (whatever I'm just trying to be solemn). I did that this weekend on my hiking/camping trip. I doubt anyone will ever see it, but check anyway! Without giving too much away, I'll say I signed a guest book in a mostly-powerless cabin in the middle of nowhere. Just for fun, let's try it! Check other guest booklets as well, because you may find evidence of another TamaTalker, making their mark on the world. ;)

honestly, it's about time! TTers have been talking about arranging meetups for so long, and I think it really is time that one such event should occur. But I just think that it would be hard because everyone seems to be so spread out - I don't really think that we'd have a large concentration of members in a small enough area to arrange a good, successful meetup, y'know what I mean?

Well, I've already met one TamaTalker in real life, Dazzmina, when she came over to Australia on holiday. But I only did that because I've trusted her for a long time, and we're best friends.

I can't think of any other TamaTalker I would actually go through all the trouble of seeing in real life. Besides, I don't think there are many TamaTalker in my area of Australia...one I think, but he's a guy. XD
