I run an online gaming clan and use a Voice over Internet Provider (VoIP). This is a real time voice Com just like a home phone or cell phone, but you can have many peeps on at once. I think this would be a great idea if you folks would want to take advantage of this. This could solve many problems quicker and more accurately. Let me know if you want to try it. I can give you the directions and addresses to connect with the VoIP of my gaming clan, nobodies on due to the summer. This is ONLY and attempt to help this forum. Mu email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
I have no problem with members setting up text or voice chats and linking them. But in over 15 years on Forums, I have never, ever, seen one take off or remain active anywhere. The majority of people on a Forum are here because they like the format as is. They don't want to be "bothered" with something else, in any form, that distracts them from the routine they are familiar with. For those that like it, link away and try it. It will fail. They all do. No worries on this end.
