We started a text-based skype chat. It is still active. I know Skype is a pain in the ass, but you can see that C2 really was smitten with the idea.

I see new users joining the group, so a quick bump to say that this invite remains open to all. I'm pilot3033 on skype, just mention something about flying east in your contact request.


Original Post:

8:47 PM - Csquared08: We should get a Skype group chat going or something.
8:47 PM - Csquared08: That could be interesting.

I agree. IRC, Skype, Steam? The comments are awesome, but a group chat could be fun as well so we can debate all the little details without clouding up the comments section.

Alright. A Skype group has been made. PM me your Skype if you wish to join the group.

It'll be lonely if it's just me and Pilate...

Pilate

But ya know, Austraeoh, not pudding.

What are we plotting about with regard to austraeoh -- and unfortunately no skype. IRC would be possible though. Oh and I just submitted my first story here -- wish me luck.

Skype is free and easy to use. No need for cameras or anything. IM'ing works like a charm. As Pilate discovered, IRC is very user unfriendly.

silvadel

I remember when there was only ONE IRC as opposed to all of the different ones, the web did not exist, and there was just irc, telnet, gopher, ftp, and a couple of other things. But yes my desktop isnt set up with a camera and I wouldnt want to use my portable when I just did all this stuff on my desktop with my U2410 monitor. Skype is probably overkill for text -- you do this often? If so it might be worth it just to have a chat with fellow bronies. Hrmf -- lets look for it.

I prefer using IRC when I can, but I was trying to use the same network the site does (IRCHighway) and it was being uncooperative, I suppose I can fire something up on freenode or the like. Sadly, not too many people actually DO use IRC though, skype seemed to have a wider install base.

silvadel

Hrmf they want a lot of info -- and I do not have a speaker for my pc either -- kind of odd, i970, 580 video card -- but I never had need to actually talk over it.

Csquared08

Speakers aren't necessary either.

Grumble -- silvadel is taken -- that is very annoying.

I made all of mine up and gave it the e-mail address I use for spam.

silvadel
Group Contributor

Hrm -- I was going to give it my real email address... I do not do enough things that are ... that way ... to need a spam address thusfar... IE I do not have a twitter or a facebook or anything like that.

Ok I installed it -- now what.

silvadel
Group Contributor

I will say submitting a story here was stressful -- I hope it gets approved and people like it.

silvadel

tappa tappa -- I installed skype -- now what -- it made me silvadel1 but it is showing my name there.

Can I just lurk? I probably won't have much to contribute, but I love reading other people's theories and such.:twilightsheepish:

450442 can you get Skype on IPad?
If not ok
If yes. How?

Emberspeak

I'd be more than happy to join in Skype, if I could get the darn thing to actually work when I tell it to create my account >.>

Lurking is perfectly acceptable.

450478
I know a guy who regularly uses Skype on his iPod, so I assume so. As for how, no clue, as I don't use Apple products.

450481
GET ON IT! :pinkiecrazy:

Go to sleep early one night, and look what happens. Not only do I miss some fantastic comments, but y'all go and make a frickin Skype group where we can pad each others' conspiracy theories! And I missed it! Now that just won't do. No sir. :applejackunsure:

I'm trying, but my network doesn't want to play nice with Skype. Bad network. No biscuit.

Let me know when it starts working.

Aqua Fortis

Success! Needed the latest version. No auto-update on Skype? :ajbemused:

Csquared08

450509
I guess not? :twilightoops:

Now I need that Skype name so I can add you! :pinkiecrazy:

My name was taken, too. Grumble indeed.

450444
It is stressful. I wish it could import formatting from Word, as I avoid Google products as a matter of principle, so Docs is out. As long as you abide by the rules, it should be approved in 12-24 hours, depending on how busy the mods are. Now we just need to wait so us Austraeoh fans can read it!

Well my computer won't accept it - it's a loaned computer and the admin has blocked access to it unfortunately -

I'm thinking of getting the new operating system for my Ipod so that I can use that, however the new system removes several useful features (such as You-tube :pinkiegasp:), so it is something of a trade-off there.
[I'm trying that now, so let's see how it goes :twilightsmile:]

YouTube has an app, and skype for iOS should work on iOS5 :twilightsmile:

Emberspeak

Bah! My ipod is too old to go past iOS 4.2.1, and you need 4.3 for Skype. 'Till I can buy my laptop rather than loan, I can't skype :raritycry:

Nope. We're all dead and gone. Nothing at all remains. Nothing.

What's your Skype name?
