During the Meeting of the Minds (MotM) we are going to take some time out to chat with our most important members, the users of SMF.

On January 1st at 2:30pm Mountain Time (GMT -7) we will be hosting a 30 minute call in talk show on TalkShoe.  We wanted to do something with voice instead of typing.  We quickly ruled out the traditional podcast as that would just involve us talking about things we think are interesting, which would just be lame.  Instead we decided that a radio talk show like format would better serve our users.  After looking into various methods we feel that TalkShoe will serve our needs the best.

We advise anyone who is interested in participating to look into the TalkShoe requirements now.  There are several VOIP (voice over IP) options that can be used so you don't have to make an actual phone call.

The show will be recorded so those of you that cannot make it will be able to download the show afterwards and listen to it.

This talk show will be conducted in English only.  Depending on the response to this show we will look into hosting future shows including shows in a localized time and language.  The show is not for support.

After the show we will be hosting a public meet and greet for those of you who can make it.  The meet and greet will be at the Days Inn, 220 S Freeway Rd, Tucson AZ 85745.  All are welcome to come and we'll be there for at least an hour.  The end time will depend on the turnout.

We will give out exact details about the show and the meet & greet as the date draws nears.

We ask those that are planning on attending to please sign up so we'll have an idea of how many people to expect.  See who is attending and sign yourself up.

I've added a page for you all to send in your ideas.  Please make sure to read the ideas already submitted and if you agree with it then click on the "I agree" link.  Voting for similar ideas will be a lot better then submitting a copy.

We hope to meet many people at this and its a good way for you to actually meet us in person.

For the talk show, there will be a chat window so if you cant get your mic connected for some reason, you can use that and other participants can relay that into the recording.

yeh folks we will not be giving support at either event, the talkshoe is so you can hear us and hear what some plans are, and for the meet and greet its so you can meet us and of course find out a little about us and plans for the future so far.  The private stuff we wont tell you, and please folks ask if you want to take our pictures some of the team do not eish pictures to be taken.

Looking forward to meet some of the users!
So those who can be there, feel free to come! :D

It would be sweet if we could email you about stuff that you could talk about - for ppl who cant come/participate.

Deaks

if you can tune in then you can ask on the show but im sure if you send to someone on the list then they would bring it up :)

lol not for me, SMF is action packed enough for me. I dont need any fancy features - aslong as SMF kicks phpbb's a** (which its already doing with version 1) im good). I would say the opposite to phpbb but lets face it, 3 versions, it sucks and nothing new or something you guys cant handle  :D

We'll be trying to figure out a good way for you all to send us ideas ahead of time.

Sounds like a great opportunity to hear from real people.  Now I just need to get talk shoe to work for me.  Working on that.

What were to happen if a user called and began requesting information on how to install a SMF forum? :P

Edit: Oh, I forgot to mention, it sounds great and am looking forward to hearing it later (Chances are, I may miss the live show, but I'll be sure to get the saved copy).

But not me because I have a bad memory. :P

Remember when you borrowed $100 from me.
Can you pay me back now?

We'd tell them to go to the community and edit it out of the final thing. :P
