Re: What's with AVEN?

Infection depends on the mode through which the attack is conducted. Some are blocked simply with decent precautions and being sensible. The more insidious forms just quietly sneak in when you're not looking.

Re: Mumble

Yes, I had a rush contract as a freelancer before DragonCon...and then DRagonCon happened...and then I got back and had work immediately...and then more appeared. The nature of freelancing is feast or famine...I'm trying to take advantage of the time of the former right now. I need the money as I'd ...

Re: How was your weekend?

My weekend was almost a week as I went to DragonCon and spent a couple of days after with friends. I rather wish it was not over.

Re: Wider pool of potential members?

The liaison bit will work for anyone with multiple forum memberships most likely as long as they have a good reputation here, no? Individually vouching for people is another way as well, at least in more isolated cases such as aces that don't want to join big communities (I've run into a few of thos...

Wider pool of potential members?

Adding little doodads to make the forum more attractive is one thing, but there is a broad ignoring of the primary issue at any growth: a restricted number of feeder forums. With the primary feeder forum down, it leaves one left that is a fledgling community at best. The ace and ace ally community i...

Re: Mumble

It is still really just Cygnus and I in the Mumble most evenings (-5 GMT). Gentleman Space did join us to text chat for a little while the other night though. I'm sorry if I keep missing others.

Re: What's with AVEN?

AVEN is rather largely and complex as far as forums go. Consequently, occasionally things get confused. Coleslaw will sort it out soon enough. Don't forget to thank Cole once the forum is working again. Being the tech admin is sometime a rather thankless job and showing appreciation for continued de...

Cygnus and I continue to keep the Mumble occupied during the weekend evenings in our time zones...and I continue to occupy it at least some during the weekday evenings as well.

Re: AGN Skype group

Given the lack of any progress with the Mumble, I have no opinion on a Skype group as far as the poll is concerned. It seems like adding yet another thing that people won't use at the moment.

Re: Mumble

Yes, if we do not use it...it really has no purpose. I try to be in there at least some most days. Though don't log in until the evening (-5 GMT) or so on days I have freelance work that requires attention. Thus far, I've managed to speak to three of you.

Re: Monopoly

I must say I rather despise it. Every time I've been convinced to play there has always been one player in a given group that is so utterly ruthless about the game that they ruin it for everyone at the table with a sort of sadistic glee. As a result, the game leaves rather a poor taste in my mouth.

Re: Steam names

I will not publicly share mine, but a private request for my Steam name is fine. I just prefer to keep immediate means of contact out from public places.

Re: Where is everyone from aven?

Well, I shall likely sit in it or pop in and out most evenings (EST) should anyone like to talk. That way there is a body there at least keeping it in use so people know it isn't a fruitless effort to check and see if someone will be there.

Re: TF2: Vanilla or Custom game play?

Yes, but that is a very broad category and your examples don't have an explanation as to modes mean little to anyone not a part of the community and custom functions/features could imply many things as well. Consequently, people not already in the TF2 community heavily are likely to be at a loss as ...

Given my lack of understanding of most options, it is impossible for me to honestly vote. I imagine I'm not the only one.

Re: Where is everyone from aven?

Mumble is basically a standalone thing. It doesn't have to "work" with a given game so much as you make sure no controls overlap. It DOES have games that is is capable of rendering a channel member list over, but that is not require. Additionally, some games support directional audio from ...

Mumble is an audio only chat with multiple configuration options. Each server can be separated in a variety of ways including subchannels for games and users can selectively mute and unmute people within it. Additionally, they can cut their own audio or microphone as they see fit. The program is gen...

Re: GOG vs Steam Summer Sales 2014

I bought six or so games during the GOG sale, though two of those were gifts for a close friend. I did not buy anything from the Steam sale (though one person bought me something) as I don't care excessively for the platform. It is still little more than DRM to me.
