Vent isn't required, though we'll have a server up soon.
Our vent server has been up and ready to go since the 16th. Of the few shellers
I managed to chat with on it so far, they were fun, mature people, and we had some good laughs before OB ended. It's definitely not mandatory
as Eske stated, but all members and/or "allied" shells like SkinwalkerAsura's that would like to utilize it, are certainly welcome to!
not that children are bad per-say...screaming constantly in vent give me migraines
As far as vent goes, I'll almost always be on it while playing, in case there's a serious problem that can't be solved by simply changing channels (Though so far, everyone's been pretty great in OB, both in ls chat and on vent, thankfully). Eske has also been granted admin access of course, and as soon as trusted members/officers are established that wouldn't mind the added responsibility of monitoring vent, they'll be granted admin as well. There are plenty of channels already available for both organization, as well as if you just can't stand my smooth, baritone voice for another second. And more can be made at members' request(s). The server can currently support 20 users, but if we end up needing more, I can bump it up accordingly.
Hope to see some of ya in-game tonight/tomorrow!
I'm starting a small local shell for me and my in town buddies...
