Actual Messenging Service.

Post by iceman604 on Fri Apr 15, 2016 4:44 pm

I find our conversations are broken and hard to keep in contact with one another on a consistant basis. There is a ton of services that would give alerts when a message comes in. As a computer tech who always had 100 things going on his computer, I know it would be helpful for me, and I'm assuming everyone else as well. Also people seem to be having problems with the chat box and even myself have to reload the page all the time to get my messages to go through. In previous big games I used skype with people (just for messenging) and I suggest we use that. If you guys have another service you suggest, please lets do so and move forward. Communication is key for success (with anything in life - relationships, your job, and team video games).

Obviously I am not the leader and don't make these kind of calls. So pending Antonio's approval - this is just a suggestion.

Thoughts or suggestions?

I don't know if I can sound my opinion on this but I am going to. I apologize if I can not and if so delete  this message. I agree with you it had always been a problem and during my regime I tried to address the issue by creating a Facebook group chat. Since I always listened and valued our member's thoughts I had told Antonio to create a poll about this, so I could act accordingly on whatever you guys want. Unfortunately it was only me and Antonio who were in favor all the others were against so it never really happened. Even though I wanted to create such a group because I knew that it was vital I did not because I valued and respected the opinions of our members.

You had blow back? Weird. There is only upside to this. It literally takes the same amount of time to sign up for this forum that it does to create a messenger account. Again, just an opinion, and we all know what opinions are like.

Yeah I did. You can ask Antonio about this, he knows about it. Not everyone voted but since we were already like 2 in favour and 4 against I kinda gave up, but those people who I had spoken to were all against it, besides Antonio.

LOL

Villan and I discussed setting up a private FB group where we were all connected and notified when someone posted/commented. We both agreed we should run a poll and almost everyone was against it. I can kind of understand beings that FB is where we are more so private. Beings that we've had members come and go I guess many didnt want their personal info accessible through FB. I did not think about the skype idea and it is something to look into. If there is any other options please let me know ice. You know most about this stuff, gather some ideas and message them to me. I will remain open to all suggestions.

there is 100 different options that all basically do the same thing.  most have a version to be on your phone if one was so inclined.  i want to use whatever most of our guys feel comfortable using.  but if I may, I can narrow it down.  I would say Skype, or Office Chat.  Office Chat I have not used, but looks pretty slick so far.  It allowed me to create a domain for members to log into.  They both have an app for all platforms, mobile included.  I figure those 2 are the least personal and can easily make group chats and even rename them to game numbers or match the forum thread name.

Edit: If you guys want to try the new one, just send me your email address and I can send you an invite to the organization. That's how it works.


Here is the page it created for universal login -
https://skullandbones-hotmail.officechat.com/u

Or most people have Skype setup already - that's the trade off.

Sounds like Skype is the ticket.

My skype id is david.habap

My last name is Navarre, but I was in Russian studies 25 years ago. In Russian, habap is the transliteration for Navarre, so I have had habap as my username for ages. Interestingly, it translates as "the fat that gathers on soup", and, in slang, as "profit".
