Great invitation and great event Jul 23, 2008

I am really interested, but not sure whether I can attend or not as I have a lot of work. So, could you please my dear colleagues let me know about what would you discuss and your views you may exchange. So grateful to you Mary for such great invitation. May Alah (God) the Almighty bless you and your sincere efforts. Kindest regards to you, other colleagues and every one of Proz team.

Great idea Aug 1, 2008

Dear Mary. It is really a great idea. Please let me know the exact time and place of meeting. Kindly put into consideration that an appointment in the evening will be much better. Thanks.

Time / Attendance Aug 1, 2008

Hello everyone,

As I believe that most of you would rather meet up in the evening, I think we should go for 6pm.

Please edit your attendance as I am looking for a place which can accommodate everyone comfortably.
So far 14 of you have confirmed.

Thanks a lot.

My Initial Two Cents :) Aug 1, 2008

Hi Mary, Everyone,

First of all, I have no problem at all with whatever time and place you guys agree on. So wherever the majority goes, count me in -- for tallying purposes lol.

Now, the last PowWow that took place in Cairo was in Costa Coffee (the one in Abbas Al-Aqqad, Nasr City). I'm not particularly a fan of Costa, but that one is probably spacious enough for large groups. If I remember correctly, there were more than 10 people last time, and it wasn't uncomfortable.

That said, I think we can safely exclude anything in City Stars, since it's either too busy, too loud, or both. But again, I have no problem if you guys decide to go there.

I'm sorry I don't have any more suggestions, since I'm usually a late-night person. But if I come across anything with potential, I'll make sure to let you guys know about iticon_smile.gif

just an idea!! Aug 4, 2008

hey all,

if u guys are planning on meeting at Costa, there is a huge one downtown, and i mention downtown because it's more centered, that's all. there is also a new one in Mossaddaq st., Duqqi. it's pretty spacious too. can't wait to see you guys and Mary, thanks a million for planning this event, I just joined Proz and i'm trying to start a career as a freelance translator, so I know this will be sooo beneficial to me. thanks again.

Get VID'd at the Powwow Aug 18, 2008

If anyone wants to have their identity verified at the powwow I will be available to do so. When your identity has been verified, a checkmark will appear in your profile signifying that your identity has been verified. Clicking on the checkmark will provide more information. Access to this information may prove useful in assessing risk when forming new online relationships.

The purpose of confirming members' IDs is to increase mutual trust across the site, in particular among users who don't know each other personally.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the powwow!

Thank you Mary! Sep 16, 2008

It was an interesting and exciting event, even though there were few of us. Mary and everyone else succeeded in making it an enlightening event. I hope to see all of you in the very near future, and I also hope to meet more colleagues in coming powwows.
