    ~Bringing Friends & Communities Together~



    The London community has on average a meetup happening once a week. However, how many of these meets are known about? And how often do these crowds mix and get to know one another outside of their usual groups? Wouldn't it be good if there was a common place to share your meets and read about what's coming up?

    The purpose of the Geek Meet Project is to do all of the above. We want to get everyone in London together and help everyone to make new friends!

    Go check it out on fb now HERE.

    Q. How do I submit my meet?
    A. Just post the link to your fb event in the FB GROUP HERE. We ask that you do invite your friends to this group out of common courtesy to help raise awareness.

    Q. Wah, my meet clashes with another!
    A. Yes, this happens a bit in London. We're happy to help put you in touch with the other meet organiser to see what can be done. Meets usually end up moved or merged. If neither is possible and two run the same weekend, it's not the end of the world; this is a big and ever-growing community after all!

    Q. Do I need to say I'm affiliated with the Geek Meet Project or Animeleague?
    A. Nope. But a mention is nice. You can post your meet in here and remain 100% independent.

    Q. Are there any ways we can cross promote or work with you more?
    A. Yes! If you want your meetup to become an official affiliated meet then we will advertise you on the Animeleague Cosplay page and on our monthly meetup roundup on the frontpage of the Animeleague website. The AL Cosplay page has over 4,000 likes and the AL website gets 20,000+ hits a week, so you'll be guaranteed attention. smile emoticon

    Q. What's the Big Geek Meet?
    A. It's our official meetup, which we host on a semi-monthly basis (usually every 6 weeks or thereabouts). Run by Animeleague (*waves*) we encourage everyone to come along and use the BGM as a real-life hub to make new friends and meet people from other communities/meets you wouldn't get to know otherwise.

    Q. Is there Geek Meet Project for Cardiff/Bristol/Glasgow/etc?
    A. London shall be our trial. Let's see how it goes here first, and if it's a success we'll roll it out across the UK!

    Been on AL for a while? Think you've seen all there is to see with ClanNation? Think again! ClanNation Staff (and RedHat) have worked hard to bring you our new Primary Clans: The Vampires, Ninjas and Pirates. Sound familiar? Then you've probably been to Alcon! Haven't been to Alcon? No worries, having attended isn't a requirement to join these clans.

    ClanNation has always been a section that has strived to bring our community together and we think we've been able to accomplish this goal with this recent reform. As a member, you'll be given the choice to join one of the three Primary Clans. Once you've chosen your clan, you have an area to mingle amongst the users who chose the same "path" as you. Much like our Alcon event, we will be hosting a bi-annual Tournament where our Primary Clans duke it out in various events to win the coveted trophy! What happens with our other clans? Oh, they're still there and they're called Member Clans now! In the Tournament, they're able to pick a Primary clan they wish to support in order to help ensure their victory. When we're not running this Tournament, Primary and Member clans can still collaborate with one another to boost activity and membership within these clans - it's a win-win situation!

    We hope you'll love the changes we're bringing to ClanNation as we work towards our goal to bringing our members closer together. To pick your Primary Clan, please go HERE. Note that everyone, at some point, will be randomly assigned if they don't choose their clan now.
