The last thing I want to do is impose another expense on Kefkah, but were we not going to get a Fringe vent server?

I never heard that we were going to have a vent server (It had been suggested a while ago). I am satisfied with the shoutbox and forums for my communications needs here. If a Fringe member would like to set up a vent server to participate in with others, fine, but it shout not be a site responsibility (let alone another site cost).

I had one for awhile that we used for the STO beta over a year ago. I can open one back up...

The cost of them depends on how many slots you buy. If we are going to do a TOR guild, I'll certainly buy one.

While I do agree with the idea of a voice-chat server, I don't think Ventrilo is quite good a choice. True, it's been a popular method for years, but I think use of Mumble is a better choice. It's lighter, easier, and open-source, so if it's known how, we could probably implement a plugin for the shoutbox to be used in cooperation with Mumble's chat system. Chaining a server along with the many MMOs we play could work out as well. Hell, if I could replace my ethernet adapter, I could run a server from my old computer.

I had thought of doing a vent server about a year ago but the feedback was at the time that maybe one or two people would use it.

At Pax, a notable vent server commpany wanted to work a deal with us. I never got back to him though the guy had some awesome perspectives on mmos and the industry.

And a company like that is a great prospect for a sponsor. Since they sell services to MMO gamers but aren't themselves a publisher.

I do think it could work. How we'd have a keep for which games we'd support are questionable.

SWG won't last much longer, so that'd die instant. TOR is coming soon, so some could use that. If EQ2 is actually worth the time, we could have a spot for that. Maybe even DCUO (yeah right). We could even have a set of "Other Games" and could note what game is being discussed in that room using the comment system (lolpushingMumble).

I totally agree Wildcat. If we could get free services (and even some $$$) for advertising, that would work well for those interested. :)

Yeah, I see TOR being the primary around here.

Perhaps Secret World, though the article I am writing may not reflect that.

Unless I missed it, SWTOR will not have any group voice chat available, right? That was a feature I really enjoyed in LotRO.
