Vent server for SCF

Post by TunaBait » Sun Oct 10, 2010 4:39 pm

I think having a vent server for the forum would be a great and helpfull thing to add here. Think about it someone is having trouble they could see if someone is on vent to talk them threw it. And you can just bs with other ppl ect ect. You could set it up with different channels one for Savage help one for gen rc talk ect ect.

For those that dont know what vent is its a sofware program that will let you voice chat over your comp. Its a free download and to set up a server is cheap and would only cost the person that sets it up. Its like under 20 bucks a months to suit SCF needs.

We can even set up a free trial to see how it goes. :D

Thoughts?

sounds like a good idea... would possibly boost activity on here... and it could reduce unnecessary/repeat posts?

Prob still have the repeat posts but it would all depend on how many of us use it. It would add the "Hey insert name here can you hop in vent sometime so you can talk me threw this" this posts.

You also can have mods in vent to that way if you have a trouble maker they can take the right actions.

I think about it just to bs with ppl from around the world about Savys would be sweeet.

It sounds like a good idea. I'd come chat and help out if needed.  I used to use vent alot during my World of Warcraft days, lol.

If someone wants to set it up and maintain it, I'll see about the possibility of using the SC name for it, but SC is not able to foot the bill on this as well as the regular site/forums.  Oarie the owner of the site pays all the bandwidth and hosting fees out of his pocket after the contributions from the site sponsors (Hobby Fever is the only one) and the member donations (less than $150 in the last 2 years).  We can't ask any more of him than that.

Ill do some more checking tonight on prices. Last one I hosted I think was around $5-$10 a month for a 25 person server. I will be happy to pay for this as long as it dont get out of control and we need a 100+ person server. For now we can set up a trial and see how it goes (think its a 5 person server for 1 month) but will wait for a responce from you Squid to use the SC name on it. Then just will need to sticky the info somewere and see how ppl use it. I would also have the same mods that help here be mods on it as well. But we can talk about that later after we set it up :D .

Anyhow just let me know and I'll get it set up bud.

I like the sounds of this. Is it simply voice or can it support video? I guess that would depend on the price your willing to pay. Then again youtube is a good quick video source anyways.

I like this vent Idea. I'd be willing to pich in a month's worth of funding if it became something of use and was used respectably.

Its not vid but you can post links and comments next to your name. So if you are talking you can post a Utube link or a  photobucket link ect ect.

There is a report option so say if a mod is not on a registered user can report any issue and it will come up in a log. We can also have it to where you have to be a registered user to gain access to certan rooms. Unregistered users can be derected to the lobby and only be able to leave that room if they get registered or a mod moves them.

I haven't heard back from Oarie, calling it "Savage Vent" should be no problem in my opinion, that doesn't tie it in with the SC name in my opinion.  Go ahead and if there is a problem, which I don't for see one, I'll take the blame.

Will do bud. I'll set it up the trial tonight or tom and pm you the info so you can post it in the place you feel best. If ppl use it I will upgrade it from the trial next month or sooner depending on how many ppl are loggin in.

Now we can also set it up to gain access you have to be a regestered member here but we can talk about all the little details after we get it up.

Ih ave the software installed on both my desktop and my laptop, how do you want to go about inviting people in?  I don't think I can limit it to only SC members, because there is not a link between the 2 pieces of software.  If you want, put up a link in the General Savage forum to instruct members how to join.
