    Background:
    I felt a need to contribute my skills to the site more since I dont make cash contributions and I do use the site a lot.
    As many of you know, I am a telcom/cableco guy and troubleshoot stuff and things.
    With that being said, I purchased a Teamspeak 3 voice server for us to actually TALK to each other on. @Brokor @Ganado and some others on here have used this program for gaming purposes and can attest to it's simplicity, reliability and functionality. The server has been branded and configured for open use with encrypted voice channels. It is open to any Monkeys who would like to bypass long distance charges or meet folks from the site that they have never spoken with via phone.

    *disclaimer*
    This is NOT an official part of Survival Monkey at this time. While Melbo has given a thumbs up, we will be keeping it separate for at least the time being. If it takes off and is a hit, I will happily hand him the keys.

    Technical:
    You will need to download and install Teamspeak 3 to use the server.
    (it's free for windows/mac/linux but $ for iphone or android aps)
    You will also need a headset or microphone to speak.

    Downloads - TeamSpeak

    Our server address:

    NEW ADDRESS
    ts26.gameservers.com:9193

    Old and dead address.
    ts41.gameservers.com:9166

    Troubleshooting:
    PM myself, brokor, ganado or mountainman or post in this thread if you require technical support.

    Admin and Moderation:
    Currently myself, brokor and ganado are the only admins.
    We will create or modify rooms upon request.
    As a courtesy, will extend moderator status to any current SM mod who wishes to participate.

    I have used the Teamspeak platform a few times now and will attest to the ease of set up..... and to the fact that it is nice to put a voice to someone you have gotten to know at SM. I encourage all to give it a shot at some point and check it out. :)

    Worst case, you can delete the TS software and ignore it moving forward. But you never know till you try. ;)

    0% webcam - for that i'd suggest skype.

    A laptop mic will work....
    A dollar store headset will too.

    I have been in Team speak a few times during the set up. We have great people on the monkey and it really is nice to get to know members better. BTW- all topics seem to come up while on team speak. I have had chats from Colloidal silver to politics to views on child rearing, oh and lots of laughing.

    Thanks @Mindgrinder for setting this up. It is a great idea. I look forward to chatting with my monkey friends.

    I've very much enjoyed our chats too but it was @Brokor s idea....all I really did was fiddle with the settings and get it working. I had the banner too big, he fixed that right quick.
