We need to come to a decision on what chat program or site to use.

I'll say right now that I don't have voice or video access.


There should be 2 votes by everybody that votes in here. 1)which chat program to use (if other, please specify) and 2)whether or not you're willing to compromise. Please realize that, as per our current principles, if we come close to a consensus of some sort and you are the dissenting voice and specify that you are unwilling to compromise, we may try to convince you to compromise anyways. If no sort of group consensus is reached whatsoever, then we should start debate. If there is any problem with the way I went about this, please let me know.

Aannnnnnnnd... GO!

I voted skype and unwilling to compromise Razz

Why? Skype is by far the best program. Really easy to set up voice chats, even conference calls, and it's really widely used so it benefits everyone to have it. Plus the guy who has a lot of members who is trying to start a commune but has no land and may be interested in joining us basically refuses to talk via text about anything important, he thinks its useless for real conversation because too much can be misinterpreted, I kinda agree though I hate voice chat but that's besides the point...anyways he's on Skype so it would be really easy if we used Skype to talk to him and see if he wants to merge with us.  I don't have any of the other programs on my computer anymore, they've been useless to me. Sad

But if you give me a cookie I might compromise...:3

I'd be willing to use anything except MSN and Yahoo! (forgot to check Skype).

Go into MSConfig and uncheck some of the startup programs... (assuming you're using M$)

As it turns out, this computer does have a microphone. I can use Skype until the 19th or 23rd or so before I'm no longer using this comp.

That makes it a tie between AIM and Skype at the moment. Should we just get on skype then? However, it is confusing as hell to talk to more than one person at a time via voice.

You'd be surprised how easy it is on skype to talk to multiple people. I've done it before, its a bit awkward at times but usually if two people are talking, others just mute themselves and wait.
