Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

PAX is NOT a dating service... I am

Yes you heard me right, I present to you:

Accalon's Official Unofficial PAX Dating Service
http://paxsingles.ning.com

HAHA... no seriously it's real.

Look, let's be honest, many of you have wanted to meet others at PAX with the hopes of finding another nerd who you can spend the rest of your life with sharing the same nerdy passions. Ok maybe not the rest of your life, but hey dinner would be nice. Well here's an opportunity.

Sure the jokes been going around "PAX is not a dating service". I guess this site is in an effort to keep those threads of the boards and put them somewhere else. Why not have an opportunity to connect with people who share the same interests as you?

I welcome any suggestions for the site, which is obviously on Ning so there are limiations. I'll be continuously polishing as things go along.

Good luck and enjoy!

    All that being said, we know there are plenty of women who go to PAX, and who frequent these forums.

    I support this endeavor, especially knowing how many couples have met at PAX.

    Too bad I know Azazel does speak the truth. Most of the 'forum girls' are already spoken for. The man supply far exceeds the demand.

    I'm lucky enough to already be married to somebody who goes to PAX with me every year, and as recently as last week said she was interested in getting a Quake tattoo. Heh. w00t.

    Maybe. If I were a single girl, I'd be downright afraid to register on there, for fear of being swamped by a flood of private messages.

    "I can has date?"
    "No, j00 can has uzer block."

    Deus is right, I really think that the first girls will have to be trailblazers of putting up with stupidity in terms of the flood that will occur.

    Good idea still as many a PAXer has seemed to want find a girl at PAX.

    PS- Sorry ladies, the Chairman is spoken for. You can still send tribute to me though in form of beer and fireworks.

    Thanks for stealing my idea, jerk. Of course it was going to be more of a matchmaking service like Bender where I match everyone up with other lonely losers from the bus station.

    There's an old, old saying about engineers (specifically, women looking to engineers for a mate), and I think it applies here for any and all ladies signing up for this service:

    "The odds are good, but the goods are odd."

    @Atlus: "And it can have blackjack! and hookers! Y'know what? Forget about the dating service."

    Gamer... dating website?

    Would Random encounters take the place of casual encounters?

    Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure this qualifies under "things I'm supposed to lock". So, put a link in your sig and we'll just put this whole unpleasantness behind us, okay?
