Chill/Hangout session - ForumIAS

Chill/Hangout session

Hey guys. So I was thinking to take a breather from all this, we could meet up virtually for a while. Nothing formal, just relax and talk basically, especially since there is such a huge shared experience. I think it'll just feel good to see forum friends/make new ones.

If it ends up being weird/awkward, I'll take the blame :P or you can pretend to lose your internet connection.

Any suggestions are very welcome. 

ABSOLUTELY OKAY TO JUST LURK WITHOUT TURNING ON AUDIO/VIDEO.

WEDNESDAY, 13th OCTOBER. 9 - 10 PM.

Okay guys. I'm thinking we let the sheet fill up until 12 pm and then I'll post the winning time and day. I will add bar graphs and pie charts. Because I can 😎

@LetsGetThisBread there is no such thing as too much enthu...

Also guys, this is a chance to ask others questions you've also wanted to ask. Like  "Hey @Patootie, why are you so wise and always at the right time?", "Hey @SergioRamos, how are you so effortlessly cool and funny?", "Hey @whatonly, who was it who dropped you on the head as a baby?".

Some of you at least have to talk okay. Especially after having casually written 3,000 word essays on forum comments. :p

Um, it be like that

And I thought forum was a republic of introverts ! 😆😆 Was it awkward.

I can tell we were all awkward. At first. Some of us were the kings of being awkward. Bunch of people with strange names, trouble justifying why we chose those names in the first place.

But in the end, we connected well. As if we knew each other for very long. Much like in reality.

Thank you@whatonly , I shall be indebted to you for this. This is what had envisioned for forumias as a community. You just made me live my dream 😌

Would it be fine if I just sit there quietly in one corner and basically say/do nothing the entire time? :P

I'm a huge introvert. And even in groups of four or five, I'll be humesha quiet. I can't imagine being in a zoom meeting with 50 people and saying anything. 

That being said, this sounds like a great idea. It would be lovely to finally get to know you all in real life. :)

Thank u@Villanelle . Jahan bachpann ke doston ne saath chhod diya, wahan forum ke kuch mahinon ke doston ne yaad kiya...feels super nice and welcome. 

As regarding my joining the call, it will be next time for me. I am shattered. Not bcoz i might not pass pre this time. 2 qns here and there and i will pass. But even those qns that i did right, i cud have easily done wrong in exam! Do i sound crazy? Maybe the uncertainty is taking a toll on my mental peace. 

It's a pack up from my side. 

But hey, have a nice meet up! And see u the next time Wen it happens.

Never worry guys, I'm an incessant chat. I can talk so much that it will sound like background noise to everyone after a point.

Proud to show my skills and happy to be of service. 😎

@whatonly I think google meet is better with 100 participants and 60 min duration. Anyways either will suit me 


I am so tempted to make another poll on whether people would be willing to give up anonymity or make fake google accounts :P

When@whatonly creates a thread titled “Chill” but soon realises@whatonly got no chill. :P
