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?

Why is there no "what is a Ventrilo anyways" answer?

Off to Google :).

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.

:D

IRC or something would be better imo.

Well, you can share files here as well, although not really F-Huge files, unles you own a webisite liek I do, in whihc case the limit is 1TB or something.

Quick, share, share, share before the internet filter in my country takes effect :(

I'm against everything that doesn't advertise a Linux client :)

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.

Plus I'm not sure IRC would be pointful, as there are already huge IRC channels on various servers.
