I've heard of these things going on all over the place. there have been LJ gatherings all over the country that spring up at random. so I was thinking why not have an official one. like a yearly or monthly thing. it will strengthen communities of users and give people a better sense of belonging here at the LJs. it can provide some free advertising and people involved with a site are more likely to recruit their friends. I have some ideas on how it can be implemented if you guys think its a good idea.
