Video Conference

Posted by Litvania on 28 March 2017 in English (English)

How about a video conference? I think it would be fun to get to better know some people around here.

A video conference sounds a little too official to me. I would love to have a chat room with other mappers though (like a WhatsApp group or whatever messaging app everyone uses).

For me I would like a scheduled video chat.

Maybe one a month and moderator approved.

@stjur Not a conference, obviously, but just like a once a month (@bhj867) video chat. It happened back when i was in micronationalism, and i started treating those people like internet friends, not just work cooperators.

I'm not sure if I even have a microphone on my laptop because I have never videocalled anyone :d

I don't oppose this idea though. I actually liked the chat we had on Discord too, before it got ruined. (However I don't like Whatsapp so maybe let's try to avoid that.)

But then also, when would the chat session(s) take place? Because there's OGF all around the globe and finding a time that suits everyone could be hard.

Just to clarify, I meant to write OGF users. I swear my brain is on a vacation today.

^ Im not telling a new Discord is a bad idea... but its a bad idea. Although a video chat would be nice. I'd participate but only if I won't be busy at the time doing stuff or sleeping.

I dream of a web-chat client where you authenticate with your OGF-credentials via OAuth... But that probably won't happen because i'm not a programmer at all (but i can provide server resources, if anyone wants to tackle that problem)

Let's wait for more users to share their opinions on this before creating another unnecessary platform.

I think some people already tried a google hangout or skype chat in past, didn't they? I'm in! I think I'd be fun, so let me know if/when it happens!

OGF video chat has been done before, and anyone who's interested is welcome to do it again. Please understand that such a forum will be inaccessible for a significant number of users, so it should not be used for any kind of decision making, etc. Happy chatting.

There was a video chat a year or two ago between two or three of us. As mentioned, the main obstacle is working round international time differences.

I might take part in a Skype or Hangouts chat if the time is right.

I wonder whether more focussed chats might be worthwhile, between people in a particular OGF region or collaborating on a specific country. But these still couldn't be "official" or decision-making, unless everyone involved is able to take part.

Sounds good, although I'll have issues with timezones

Also, is it even possible to have a spontaneous yet orderly conversation among 5+ people?

Comment from Litvania on 29 March 2017 at 09:44

@eklas Yes! But do you mean in video or in chat?

Comment from eklas on 29 March 2017 at 09:56

I don't mean if it's technically feasible, but more like... socially feasible? Like isn't a conversation between 5+ people just a chaos?
