AGN Skype group

Postby Doctor Azo » Fri Jul 18, 2014 12:45 pm

Once there're more than a few members, I'll try and set up a Skype group for AGN.

Skype has groups :[shock] ? I didn'd know about it. How can I add myself to such group?
I vote yes. Anything that helps spread the word to the world about this site is good, in my opinion.

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.

i for one seeing as how agners are all over the world ( :SByay yeah you go :SBthumbsup ) and multiple time zones i don't see how it would work but i am all for it would be cool/awesome.

EDIT: skype group chats as far as i know is when contacts get in to a group chat easy to set up but you would first need to be friends on skype with some one in the group to add you to said group.
I am who I am I don't need nor want a label I simply am who I am and your approval is not needed nor wanted I am me and me is pretty awesome.

well seeing as how no one said no just n/a probably meaning that they dont have a skype i think it is a great idea.

I only use Skype on mobile, so not sure about it.

Anyway, I have a TS3 server and there's room for an AGN space there if this Voip thing ever catches on. Just to offer another alternative to mumble.
Games are a waste of time, but they're a fun waste of time.

Well, years passed and I changed my mind. Now my vote goes to N/A. I don't use Skype any more. Based on my experience from Mumble, which nowadays is not used, I think that an AGN Skype group will be unused as well :[:\] . We also have Steam group and it's unused too. As for me, I don't mind it. I visit this site and that's enough for me :[:)] . But if you want to be a part of a Skype group, I don't mind it neither :[:)]

Perhaps there wouldn't be a lot of people using it often (if at all)...I don't know. But I'm thinking why not? If it isn't complicated or difficult to set up and since it is free it could be great to have for anyone who wants to connect directly (and well that have Skype). I use it, think it would be good to have the option. It is easy to just log in, see if anyone is around for possible gaming.
If it ends up that no one has any use of it well then can just take it down and/or find another alternative?

The Skype group might be even less useful after AGNIM, which will have a group chat feature as well. Still if we had much more members it there'd still be a demand for it....

This might be nice to get into again. You really should go for the IM thing though, I miss playing with people on simple games with IMs.

I'm thinking about making a Skype group that allows not-yet-AGN members too. This will allow members to independently co-ordinate with others and arrange sessions/matches as well. This should help encourage others in time to join too. As more members come in, they may encourages others to join as well. Another thing is being more connected this way enables finding new friends or gaming buddies, helping them bond too with or without AGN. Some like me is still digging around trying to find a decent friend that has more in common....and friends are more likely to join friends in new communities.

Ace Gamers Network is also about the networking. While most benefits go to those who're active members here, we want to reach out to a wider range of audience which'll also help stimulate our membership here. AGN is small and probably will always be rather small so why not help bridge people outside the community? We're not a commercial project where members = revenue, we're an asexual/aromantic-friendly social community project for the purpose of facilitating gaming friends and, hopefully, full-fledged friends.

For AGNIM, it'll still be exclusive to our registered members.

well a skype group is not hard to set up i could set it up in less than five minutes but would need all the skype names of those who would like to join. and from there you could invite anyone in your skype list i think that's how it works anyway not sure if there is like a chat group moderator function or not. really have not messed with groups on skype much and its not like its hard to maintain so you could just make one and see how it goes. i mean what's the harm in trying right.

An official Skype group must be moderated or owned by a staff member.
