Well the chat bar is a great tool, it allows for random BS to be exchanged in a short matter of time, however, I may have somethng better.

Ventrilo, would be a great program for the site to use, considering well instead of typing you can just talk back and forth for free in designated rooms. With the higher GSM and SPEEX codecs it has a clarity of a high quality phone. Also, as I said it's free for normal users, the only costs involved are under $10 usd a month for a server rental. Which I would be willing to pay the first month, and turn the password and server control over to the web directors and or site admin.

This is the main website- www.ventrilo.com you will need to go here to download the client software for your individual OS.

Here is an example of a server hosting site- http://www.ventriloservers.biz/
which happens to be a cheap site 8.95 for a 25 user server. Which 25 users on at one given time is usually a hard feat to achieve.

Think on it a bit and tell me what you think.

I doubt very much that the owner of this site would want to bother with extra cost, but you can PM him (boss).

Thats why I'd just cover the bill. I'll put it up for a month just to see if it fairs or flops. If it does well then oh well I guess I'll have to give up a pack of smokes for the day...lol.

I am not at all a specialist in this subject, but would it not be almost just as easy to use Skype or Teamspeak (or similar) that have the advantage to be completely free?

Easier to use than teamspeak, plus the clarity is much better. I'll see if I can scrounge up the money once our debit cards get replaced.

Well it would allow people to talk to one another using voice...... Think of it as a telephone without the bill. I'll just get the server, whoever wants to try it can try it. I have to say though its real fun to get drunk and chat on vent.

Nothing comes for free...other than that there are other simpler methods out there

it is not a bad idea but i doubt the boss will agree to pay 10 dollars a month.maybe it would be better that members who will be using this thing pay 10 dollars when their time comes.for example first month is yours,second mine and so on.it really is not a bad idea

You know you can just host the server from your own computer, and pay the extra cost to your electricity bill, assuming you want it to be available 24/7.

If you really want to talk to somebody on this forum, why don't you exchange Skype information? I know alot of people here I don't want to talk to and would see it as an useless application to have for a web forum.
