K. I'm totally bummed that Vlad closed the thread with out warning. Granted, we don't talk exclusively about a "meet" but i think we have enough impromptu get togethers that it was better to have that thread, than to have us clutter up any of the other subforums with threads saying "meet!" or "what do you think of my new purchase?" or "should i get this?"... or "enable me this" .... without the superfluous "congrats" from 20-odd or more random tPFrs... Plus, as the PMs only allow 5 recipients at a time, and there are more than 5 of us that will do meets...., and not everyone can meet at the same time...but it's nice to know that so-and-so will possibly be in the mall at such-and-such a time. What difference if it's in one place in the lv sub forum, or in separate threads elsewhere? We mostly discuss LV past, present & future purchases, discuss our LV SAs, enable each other, post pictures of desired items... we don't exclude anyone. Can we open up a "Club Hawaii" (similar to Club Bagnshoo?) in the general forum? Would that be more acceptable since we do love to talk about our purses and when we can get together, but also since our thread also digresses to other topics occasionally? And reserve the HI meet, for "formal" HI get-togethers? Thanks for your time Vlad, & Mods!
