==european hitchhiking thing==
At the 789 meeting there was the idea to found a sort of ''European Hitchhiking Association'' / umbrella thing, to connect the different hitchhiking clubs and to spread the word about meetings, races, events, etc. around hitchhiking and it's equivalents.
For the moment european statut association doesn't exist cause there is too much different rights and laws in all countries. They work on it for 20 years but nothing have been approve...However, it's possible to create a federation in one country and put all association like hh clubs in. But it will working with the law of this country, not two, not three and it's registered in one place. Federation system is the same system of association, it cost 30€ in France.--[[User:Terrehappy|MiSha]] 07:41, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

** it's alreday a hip hop band...
** I think if we have a different thematic which is linked to hithhicking by a special side, we can have a lot of intention, more creativity bring attraction. --[[User:Terrehappy|MiSha]] 09:31, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
* The Federation of European Hitchhikers.
** I gave my reasons in the email, but I think it would be a big mistake to give it a name which obscures its purpose for not-very-intelligent members of the media or bureaucrats. Domain name would be [[User:Somewhatofftheway|Somewhatofftheway]] 17:02, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
** I don't like the fact that the localisation (Europe) is in the root domain. Plus I don't like the fact that it's in english. Half Europe has Russian as at least a second language. That's why I favour something in a neutral language like esperanto. An acceptable solution would be to have two urls for the website. This one for the english speakers, and another one for the russian speaker (solution that I still find inferior to an esperanto name). Or to have 3 urls, the main one being the esperanto one. Other than that, I love it
** I hate to make this argument as a native speaker (normally the German guys do it) but the closest thing you get these days to being language neutral is English. True, Esperanto is in theory neutral, but compared to English it is not much spoken. I can perhaps agree philosophically, but practically I don't see what advantage a non-English name gives.

* blaffen (danish for ''hitchhiking'')
** sounds funny --[[User:Platschi|Platschi]] 15:47, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
** why dannish ? think to communication if we choose a name like that, nobody will care about or remember...--[[User:Terrehappy|MiSha]] 07:48, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
** thats so cool, i like this. why don't call the 2010 789 thing ''blaffen fest'' --[[User:Quarim|Quarim]] 07:37, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
* thumb up
* Kuda ( russian for ''where'')
* i prefer any translation for 'Autostop', for that is what we are doing. Better to have 5000 translations(and domains) than one not many have understood, yes? But it doesnt matter what i say, i cannot participate in next years event. So "Do As Thou Will, Shall Be The Whole Ov The Law" vi ses, r3353
* MORE IDEAS? Feel free to comment on the ideas
:Photogallery with portraits of many many drivers ??
i agree with both the above options. But its easy for us cute, friendly-looking Hitch hikers to convince a random stranger to give up personal information. There may be some 'un-savory' looking-types who are getting a "pity" ride, and to dig into the drivers personal life may be contrived as an affront to an already open person. So having a form we all can print and give away freely to drivers(with logo and organizations address[where ever that may be] might soothe over any body odor we have. And continue this fine tradition ov exchange. r3353
Or, we make a list of all of drivers names so to make huge, global list with all of them - so we would just SEE/Show to the world how many helpful people are around here.
i thought '789-the road is mine' was near acceptable, but too ego-centric. So therefore i vote "789, begins the line" As we are all coming from somewhere to a specific destination for a specific reason. r3353
== Magazine ==
[[User:Robino|Robino]] wants to put some effort together to set up a hitchhikers magazine, to be distributed at this event. There is already some work done for a [[Hitchhiking Zine]], so we could take that idea some steps up.
:I'm interested in helping setting up this zine :) [[User:platschi|platschi]]<small><sup>[ site], [[User talk:platschi|wikitalk]]</sup></small> 09:14, 14 August 2008 (CEST)
