GWJ Ventrilo Server FAQ

To answer the other question, there is no stated policy regarding non-Goodjers. I'd say the policy is to only invite guests that you are happy to claim, if you know what I mean.

But by all means, people do that all the time. AFAIK it's never led to a problem.

I don't think we get anywhere near server capacity most of the time. BF4 just launched, but I'm not clear if people will be using Vent or the in-game option. Goodjers playing together would take precedence over non-Goodjers, imho, and I believe TheWalt's ho.

Excellent! My original thought was to include the Vent server in the "Welcome Message" Twitch has, but I have no clue how many folks will be watching (as in "I expect 0, but who knows?"). So I'll see about how best to handle that.

All we need is a room titled "Extra Life 2013" or some such, and then we can all give it a test tomorrow or Friday night I suppose. That way we can all interact with each other, and any other GWJers that want to hop in and chat or see what's going on can do so.

So all you want is a room? No problem.

And for future reference, asking questions here is almost always faster, as there are a whole bunch of us with Channel Admin abilities.

This. Thanks fedaykin!

I think we need a Trading Card Game catch all channel in vent. Maybe call it TCG catch all.

Done.

Awesome thank you!

We on the Extra-Life team are hoping to use the Vent server, but we'd like a room specific to Extra-Life.

And done.

Excellent! You are a Muad'Dib amongst Fremen, good sir.

It's GWJ Annual Ventrilo Donation Drive time!

Clan Pay option located here:
http://clanpay.darkstarllc.com/donat...

Remember, the GWJ community is so powerfully generous, you'll have to get your donation in quick! I don't like having more money in the Clan pay account than is necessary to cover the annual expense ($134), so I will update this thread when we've met our donation drive for this year. Thanks in advance!

Payment SENT!
I'm not on as much as most of you but when I want it it's nice to know it's there.

Awesome, thanks!

Update:
Damn you people are amazing. We're over half way there on day 1 ($85 donated towards the $134 goal). I'll let you know when we're covered for 2014, which will be tomorrow if this rate keeps up!

Thanks,
TheWalt

Okay stop!
We have funded halfway through 2015 already. Thanks for everyone's support!

(currently at 200 of the 134 goal).

Huzzah!

Heh, and then from the dedicated thread, he got funded through 2015 as well, before remembering to update it.

Fundraising in this community isn't the most difficult thing in the world, is it?

Ooh rah!
GWJ fundraising = 1 year funded per fundraising day.

A day late but not a dollar short I guess. I was hoping to hit the, "name your own channel," tier.

But then I realized I can just ask for almost any room to be created...so I guess I'm already there? Why is this place so cool!?!?!

Why is this place so cool!?!?!

Clearly, we're missing a monetization opportunity here.

Don't let EA know.

After all, if someone's actually happy with your product, that means they didn't pay enough.

Did the password for the Ventrilo server change? I can't get on anymore (it's been a long while since I tried).

Password should still be the same, though I'm not at home right now where I can test it.

Sorry to be necro-bumping, but I've noticed some unusual activity in the server. There's some guy called "IAimtoMisbehave" who sits in the Age of Empires 2 HD channel, and he appears to always be talking. Makes me think he's mic-spamming or something (the name suggests a troll in plain sight). He's been here multiple times, and there's occasionally others in the channel with him. I have no idea if they're Goodjers or not, I haven't gone into the channel lest my ears be assaulted with mic spam, but I wanted folks to be aware in case administrative powers need to be invoked. If we don't care, no worries, I just felt like I had to say something.

They might just have an always-live mic. Sitting there, alone, even if you're screaming blatant obscenities and threatening to kick puppies, isn't a very efficient method of trolling. A single connection isn't going to overwhelm the server, no matter what. If other people are sharing the channel without complaint, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

The name could be a Firefly reference.

He's a guy who used to? Still does? play League of Legends with some GWJ people.

We generally have taken a stance in the past that, if an unrecognized person isn't bothering anyone, and we aren't having capacity issues, we leave them alone.

You'll never till ya try!

Yes IAimToMisbehave is a friend of mine, and his name is a Firefly reference. He and his brother are not members of our community, but friends I know who used play League of Legends with GWJ folks using our vent server. They still play with us, just we don't use vent anymore. He and his brother still use the server sometimes. The always-on is likely from his fan. He'll leave vent running in case his brother pops on to talk to him.

If it's a problem let me know and I can talk to him.

Could I be made an admin, we are setting up a Hearthstone tournament and I would like to make a couple channels for the weekend and then remove them when we are done. My vent account is MonoCheli like here.

Thanks!

TheWalt has okayed it, so if it doesn't happen tonight, please shoot me a PM reminder.

Great, thanks. I'll let you know.
