    as a TF fan site, we should start a vent....who is with me?

    I will work on starting up a temporary one until we can convince the site to put one up.

    I will call it

    Transfans (temp)

    i guess, anyone have any better names?


    EDIT:_________________________________________________________________


    Vent is short for Ventrillo...a free program
    I is used so that many different people can talk via a microphone+and speakers or a headset on your computer. they are all conected though a server that has different channels

    the benefits of Vent, is that it is REAL-TIME.....u can actually TALK (with your voice) to people you are trading with, etc. and chat in different subgroups. all you need is a headset/ or microphone and speakers on your computer

    So it's like the failed IRC or Gabbly chats, only even LESS popular and known about?

    You do know that Vent isn't free. And you would need one that would support at least 200 members if not more. Have fun paying that $100 a month or so.

    .......I meant Free for its users

    I just figured out a couple posts back, that it would cost a bit to make one this big, but at the verry least, we could encourage the site to make one.

    I would be willing to start it up and pay $100 or wadever the first month, Just to try it out and we can go from there

    Nah thanks.
    I'll stick to Gabbly, or the numerous FREE IM programs available like AIM or MSN.

    I love Ventrillo. Absolutely love it. I use it almost every day with my Kinship in Lord of the Rings Online. I've used it since 2002 or so, going through multiple online multiplayer games. Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy, Battlefield series, Star Wars Galaxies, City of Heroes.

    In terms of quality, if you've ever used TeamSpeak2, Vent blows it away.

    That said, I don't see it working for this site.

    Vent is amazing when it comes to 60+ man raids in WoW. However, I do not support one for something like a message board ... this IS a form of communication, why would you want to put another form on top of it, thus making one obsolete or unnecessary?
