Lanparties (also called Netparties) are when a bunch of people all bring their PCs, meet at someones house (or sometimes meet at an office or other building), set up and network their computers together, and play network games over that local network. Lanparties can be as small as just a few local players getting together for a weekend, or hundreds of people meeting in a hotel or gymnasium. Depending on how many semi-local doomers you know, doom-oriented lanparties may be hard to find and organize.

If you would like to have your lanparty documentation/content included here, follow the directions below - -
Read them all please, it's up to you to get your content together, correctly, within the guidelines described below.
(1) Obviously, this is for Doom2-related events only.
(2) IMAGE GUIDELINES: If your lanparty documentation includes digitized pictures, the pictures must either be part of a low-resolution layout, or we can include links to pages which contain high-resolution pictures, but only one high-resolution picture per page. You may also do both, using the low-resolution picture to link to a page containing the high-resolution one. See the December, 2000 netparty in Stavanger, Norway entry for an example of how this is done. Your index page itself must not include high resolution pictures.
(note: causing the browser to display an otherwise high resolution picture as a smaller size does NOT make it a low resolution picture. The way to do this is to use graphics software to resize or resample your high-resolution pictures so that they become smaller, lower-resolution ones).
