      Possible Starcraft 2 Vent/Mumble server

      Ive been thinking about this for a bit and did some looking up on it and think the idea of getting our own vent/mumble service for theUEN. I would preffer to use vent however i do know mumble is a bit better sound quality wise and bandwidth wise (or so ive heard)

      Im willing to pay for it every month, this doesnt bother me XD however before I go and do anything I want to see who is down for this, how often can we expect people to use the service and if anyone has any experience in either vent or mumble to assist me with admin stuff.

      Obviously i think this is good for a couple reasons:
      > Base for 2v2 and 3v3 matches for us to chat in teams
      > You can login here to see who is online rather that go into SC2 and find out no one is there :O
      > Help build a social atmosphere (oh i sound technical now :P ) for theUEN
      > Just to socialise and keep each other entertained lol
      > Also use for commentaries, so other people can listen and comment after etc

      I will also have to discuss server placement as im in AUS and most people are in US so thatll have to come later, however leave comments and we will see what happens!

      I actually own a Ventrilo server but im not sure how many people it can hold. I used to lead a lot of WoW raids during the 40 man era so my server had 50 slots but I have no idea how many it has now. If it does have 50 slots, I will give you guys the info.

      Wow, we got a vent now? I think we're less than 50, if we need space, kick the afk's for a short period =P

      It would really help the community ambiance, good initiative to suggest it! And thanks Moderas for your server! (if sharing it)
      Ventrilo ftw !!

      Looks like my vent server is currently only 15 slots, so I wouldnt be able to open it up to everybody because between my friends and my mothers' group of people we are usually around 10 people already. Maybe for special events we can use it, but outside of that it wont work

      I'm down with a vent server too but I like skype when playing together... quality works better and sometimes my vent gets lagged and doesn't send me others' messages for several minutes.

      Well i can afford a 50 person server for both either mumble or vent atm, and also with skype you can only have 4 people per call, which is only useful for games, however i propose vent for a first login point so everyone can chat, so if I find vent to be popular in the next few days i will try to have it setup for next week, if eveyone likes that idea?

      Also there is no reason you cant still use skype for that sort of stuff, however for general stuff vent will suffice and allow everyone to chat
