also maali: i think there is some strange thing going on regarding the signup thing. either some random pouet user is trolling or they are adding subscriptions themselves to make it look more relevant.

He said booked - doubt its paid for. And according to the website, the location is now Aalborg, which is not where this hall is at.

I personally have about 200 theories of whats going on, and the one who is second least likely ("this is a plot by the TUM organizers to market their party") seems infinitely more plausible than this actually happening and not being some kind of scam :)

Again, who would fall for this?

So, is this an ARG or what?

That'd be awesome.

Oops, that was an answer to Garg's previous post.

Gargaj, my personal theory is that the guy did too many shrooms and its really messing him up. I think we are venturing outside of the realms of logic and coherency here :)

But then it's not a scam, it's just a horrible attempt at honest party organizing.

when creating fakeusers is no longer fun, create fakeparties. yeah!
Gargaj: correct - I still would advise anyone to stay home with their families though :)

At least TP1300 is bringing a lot of lollage. I am debating whether to volunteer as crew :)

does it seem over-ambitous? yep.
does it seem like its organized with a strong demoscene-spirit? not really.
is it on very short notice and in general sounds like a totally crazy idea doomed to fail? oh my, yes.

but calling SCAM on it goes a little far in my eyes. Sure it looks fishy and i wouldnt recommend anyone to buy tickets at this point but lets lay back and watch what happens first before burning it with fire, ok?
(and yes, trolling the signup script isnt really helping either)

on that note, wheres the popcorn?

wysiwtf: The site did contain a working dontate paypal button when we saw it the first time.
But yeah, let's see what happens.

he needs like 50 visitors alone to cover the announced prizemoney! :P
wysiwtf: right, I will lay off with calling it a scam, it does seem rude and noninclusive. Best of luck to TP1300 - you will need it :)
