I'm not a big fan of using Skype since it has become nothing more than spyware for the NSA with huge security vulnerabilities.

Would you perhaps consider using an alternative VoIP?

Preferably something that's opensource and works on all platforms?

Linphone is one example plus it offers free SIP services: https://www.linphone.org/

Skype is convenient since so many people use it on a daily basis, that's why we created the group in the first place - we noticed as we spoke in the shoutbox that a lot of us were on Skype at the same time, hence the idea was born. It's just for chatting (voice calls are usually organised by Lobsel) and not overly active right now, it's just a little thing on the side for banter. I doubt people would start downloading seperate programs just for a single chat-group.

Well, it is a very lite weight app plus you don't even have to create an account to get going on it...Oooh well, it was worth a try! XD

Do these group calls on skype require the paid membership, or do free accounts work fine with it?

Paid membership is only for fluffy things such as group-wide video etc. The free Skype is fine for chat, which is the only thing we use :)

Raidcall is also a very easy service to navigate, and it's like skype. :) http://www.raidcall.com/v7/index.html


May the Shadows guide you unto the light...

It varies, but lately not too often. I think a big reason is because of chat lag and sometimes it takes a couple of hours to see that people were having a discussion.

We don't really do voicecalls, if we do they're seperately organised. The group is just for chat, so just PM me your handle and I'll drag you in :)

The group still exists and sporadically something is said, but to call it alive would be an overstatement, haha xD
