dubmood: touchè on the pizza-prices. :)

stefan: regarding tg as a scene-party; i can't just snap my fingers and make all the lamers go away, but i *can* do whatever is in my power to make things cheaper and cooler for sceners. more scene-related stuff, less lamers, more good prizes, less gamers, more cool seminars and stuff like that, less microsoft-representatives (tg96 anyone? :) etc.. my point is this; no - we can NEVER make tg a sceners-only party like (ex-)mekka, but we can make things more like assembly, which i personally love. :)

who cares about the pizza prices in norway, it's the price of beer that counts.

so nosfe, then you definitely know which party to join :)

and to gathering .. hmn i was there in 1996&1997, but nowadays everyone of the 4000 non sceners destroy the "scene" feeling completely, regardless if there are some scene appetizers and even if there are some known sceners. its like visiting a zoo. you are just watching the monkeys play instead of taking part.

nosfe: hey, it was dubmood who brought up the pizza-prices. :) (..and it's actually not -that- expensive, if you know where to get 'em :)
and yes; beer is a bit steep, compared to f.ex. denmark, but it's actually cheaper than finland in some cases.

jazz: well, things have changed.. but it's still not good enough, that's why we need more good scene-people to come. :)

Gloom, about "prizes" at TG, we came 2nd in the demo compo at TG1998, and we got 10.000nok, in cash. Plus a levi's jeans jacket each, which I sold for around another 150nok :). The prizes then were just fine. The assembly model(r) for combining a scener party with a big lan event works just fine imo, you don't have to get rid of all the people that you call "lamers", as long as they respect the compos etc. Like abyss has forced them into doing at asm, and he himself said something like "if we can make 10 gamers interested in the scene, we have succeeded" or so. That is not a true quote, but it was something like that :) You might need a "The Boozening" somewhere near the partyplace as well, like boozembly at assembly. A lot of sceners go to assembly and almost only hang at boozembly :) No, I'm not AGAINST TG as a big scene event, but it will be hard if it competes, date-wise, with some big scener-only-party (like mekka, and now perhaps breakpoint, we'll have to wait and see). I doubt that it is competing with some big LAN event though, so if you want sceners, you have to organize it when sceners don't want to go to some other big happening. Or just have norwegian sceners that thinks TG is a big local party :)

I'll definitely be at Breakpoint, for the following reason:

stefan, you actually sold a levis jacket for the prize of one-and-a-half pizza? thats what i call a true business-man;-)
back to basics:
i think ms also made it to a big event because of the location: if you draw all european sceners' hometowns on a map, fallingbostel will come out as the exact middle. (would be a nice lil script for future partyplace-finding;-)
Mommy I have no money to booze at Breakpoint.

you can always try to sell yourself to get some money.

What a mature comment, isn't it?

i bet that means you'd get a job, which is by all means a mature comment
