    Ventrilo server?

    Ever thought about adding a ventrilo server where we could discuss things? Obviously it would have to be limited to members that had a certain number of posts to keep out spammers, but it might be a good idea. What do you all think?

    Ah okay.

    Ventrilo is a proprietary Voice over Internet Protocol program with clients for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X.
    I personally won't use it even if there's one, so I voted "I don't care".

    It's probably just me, though. I like forums better because of their un-realtime nature. That allows one to think twice before saying (typing) something. For personal conversations, I also prefer IM over phone for this same reason.

    It doesn't fit this board at all. Most things are "problems with textual information", just try and describe the URL of a pastebin

    We will have a lot of time to think by writing instead of speaking.

    I prefer textual communication.
    An IRC seems a good feature though.

    As long as 200 posts is the minimum I'm for it.

    Usually you give each person their own password to get onto the server. I believe Ventrillo and Teamspeak both have various user levels that allow you to specify permissions and permission groups for users.

    It would be a huge undertaking just to maintain the server but to allow unfettered public access would be a big mistake as well.

    I'm not against it but I do not feel it is very practical.
