Communication Ideas

Post  OmegaChaos on Fri Dec 20, 2013 2:41 pm

This is mainly for staff and for discussing the new site I am making and how to move forward with the community.

What do you all think about using a text or voice chat program and make new profiles with our forum names to be able to contact each other? XFire is excellent because it has an interface in game you can bring up and has features to track how much you play said game. Skype is skype, everyone has it and knows how to use it. Ventrilo would be more of a voice chat server I could host for our game that anyone can join.

Any other ideas on making communication easier between staff members as well as regular players?

From experience... of another server and different community... voice chatting during game play rarely increased/encouraged roleplay.

Perhaps it was more so the players involved at fault.. because I recall twice being in group skype conversations while playing this server/community;
The first one was with a bunch of unties during pging on seris island... back in the early months.. while the host was still starbridge.
The Second one was before Felix stopped hosting... (with sniqow, rabidus, and 'the 13th warrior') we still managed to roleplay our characters.. despite the ooc talking and laughs.

Edit:
It might be fun/interesting to hear certain accents if we've still got some non-american/canadian players lurking around...  Embarassed

Agreed TheeVals. I don't have any interest in voice chatting while I play. I just want chatting whether text or voice to be more available for logistic reasons for example, I need to talk to Raven to get some graphic ideas approved. I'd also like to talk with Rann to get some input on potential website contests and what could be awarded in game.

I think it would be rather difficult to get everyone on board with using a certain program and making new user accounts so for the time being I am going to put up a barebones site with an embedded chat program.

@Felix - Right now I am going to use Wix because they have a great editor and it looks nice combined with a .tk domain. I do have a background in web design but I think I am the only person excited about having a website and trying to get better promotion so for the time being I am not going to build a site from scratch. I made sure to pick a free site that allows high quality looking designs with the addition of a small banner ad at the bottom.
