Do any of you know each other in real-life?

To be clear, I'm not asking for anyone's complete identities here or anything, I'm just curious if any of the users here are all that close in real-life. Just to make it more concrete, as a 1,500+ banana point account, are there any 1,500+ banana point account holders that you know in real-life? Are you friends? How does that work? Did you meet over the platform first or did you just figure out the other person had a WSO account as a matter of course? Cheers

I met up with a bunch of people in NYC from another finance forum and hooked up with one of them, but haven't met anyone on WSO.Β

When I was debating on pursuing NYU's MSRE a couple of years go, I reached out to someone on WSO who was in the program and we met for coffee. He ended up convincing me on pursuing it and we are very good friends to this day. Not sure how many bananas he has on here though

I've met a few from WSO in person before, and a decent number over phone (though unfortunately not so much recently)

1500+ is a low threshold. You're sub-human at that cutoff.Β  :)

I've spoken with several people who know my actual name. One of my closest friends I met on this forum actually.
