Lords and Ladies of the greatest nation in the world (For those confused, I am talking about the UK),

I would like to propose a meet in early 2016.

Any takers?

I thought we could host it at a central location, as opposed to having people travel down to London, we could meet in a more central location? Birmingham? Personally I would prefer London (as I live near there) but any takers or suggestions would be great.

    Lived in Brum, outside of pubs ( I can't drink ) and shopping malls, it was a little empty, but I don't mind just sitting around with people somewhere if I turn up. @Jovolo is coming of course. Probably would prefer London (it's also cheaper for me to travel to London). January or March would be fine.

    I would love for it to take place in London but I'm concerned some UK people loathe A) London and B ) having to travel that distance from whichever part of the UK they live in, though London is, of course, the greatest city on Earth.

    Of course I'll be there

    I prefer London too. Or Luton, Luton is cosy.

    Luton is only cosy because it is on fire most of the time.

    London isn't particularly central, it's true - but it does have the advantage of relatively good transport links to the rest of the UK.  Birmingham is quite a bit closer to Edinburgh than London is - but Edinburgh to Birmingham is five and a half hours, compared to ~4h20m Edinburgh to London.

    Disclosure: I'll be living in London next year, so a London meet would make my life easier (though as I said, it's easy enough for me to get from London to pretty much anywhere in the UK).

    I would also be amenable to d**king everyone else over and meeting in London.

    Screw the lazy brits. Let's do london. If they can't be bothered to travel 4.5 hours to meet I don't want to meet them anyways! (yay 1.5 hour flight)

    Carmain was the best at organising. He turned up eventually, like 4 hours late.

    @Jovolo always shows up early and leaves before everyone arrives. THAT is how prompt he is.

    I'd be interested. Weekends are very tricky though due to work and child care, especially if it was held in London. I'm half way between Leeds and Manchester for reference.

    Count me in, but we need to set a date far enough in advance so I can arrange to have time off from work!

    I can organise London if you like. Camden & general area is probably good for things to do/places to hang out.

    As someone who was born and raised in Luton.. it is not cozy, it is a shithole.

    Depending on the month, I -could- lower My standards and do London. My standards do not go low enough for Luton, however. May need advice on cheerfully cheap (but not a dive) hotels!
