I've always sort of half wanted to go, but not seriously. I've been registered as a forum member since 2006, but it's only recently I've gotten involved - and that in rather substantial fashion!
I've always loved Reaper, though there was a rough patch in 2008 and I made posts on this board that make the stuff on the cloud giant and paint sets threads look like genteel conversation over tea. Frankly, I was a gigantic jerk (so bad, in fact, that the entire thread was ripped and put private). Looking back it does seem rather a silly thing, and could have been handled much better - certainly on my end. I stayed away from here after that, but Reaper was still awesome so I bought through intermediaries. Completely at random I showed up in August, made one post on the Kickstarter thread, and got swept away in the enthusiasm.
And that's when I really started thinking that this forum, and this company, are more fantastic than I thought. That this was, in fact, the best board I'd ever been on (and I've been on many) and literally filled with superb people. I wanted to stick around, and be part of it, and now we seem to be a good fit.
Before I was just a customer, but now I feel more like I'm part of a community - and a great one at that! So now I'm thinking something like Reapercon, well that might just be something incredibly awesome. And if Bryan wants to share a drink, well that's one damn fine compliment. Bring Clark along, and I'll buy the first round to make up for being a jerk back in '08.
Heck, prolly nobody even remembers that. But I do, and a goblin always pays out a debt to make things even. That's written in the Book of Snotrag the Slimy, our greatest scholar.

Buglips, that is just epic, and so very wrong.
