    Good day fellow unity users,

    This skype channel has been created as an easy, and quick way to meet new people, find collaborations, sell your services or ask for help.*

    We have set up a skype channel as an alternative to the IRC channel. if you wish to join there are a few things to note.


    To join the Skype chat simply add one of the following on skype with code 'UNITY' in the friend request, Use my address as primary method of getting in as I am around 90% of the time:

    CharlieSamways

    Larvantholos

    Dzebnapwn

    Kathleen_kqe


    Currently moderating the chat:


    Wolfhunter777 [ Kathleen_kqe ]

    Larvantholos [Larvantholos]

    Hippocoder

    Dávid Debnár [ dzebnapwn ]


    Once in the chat, you will be asked to set your notification settings to contain the following:
    [report] - use this command to report a user if they are violating the rules
    [help] - use this command if you are in need of assistance with any unity related issues.
    [collaboration] - use this command if you are collaborating a post, link to the thread and say what you are looking for.
    [paid] - use this command if you are looking for a freelancer or sole trader for hire.
    [lfw] - use this command if you are looking for work, paid or unpaid.
    [advice] - use this command if asking for advice on a general topic.
    [showcase] - use this command if you are showcasing your work
    your name - if anyone speaks to you directly you will be notified
    Discussion - talking about Unity or game development subjects? spark up a discussion with this tag.

    EG1

    EG 2

    [Collaboration] Project ______ is looking for talented artists *Link to thread here* please respond if interested, thankyou

    EG 3

    paste this code into your notification settings for the group chat and replace yourname with yourname

    'Conversation->Notification Settings->paste into the box and select "notify me only when these words are mentioned:"'
    Code (csharp):
    1. [help] [advice] [collaboration] [Discussion] [Announcement] [report] [paid] [lfw] [showcase] [I]yourname[/I]
    This system will allow the skype chat to notify the users when something important has been said, if the message does not contain a tag your system will not recieve a sound and therefor not distract you. we hope to see you online soon, please respect the chat room and enjoy yourself!

    We are a real humorous bunch, hope you don't mind.

    EDIT:

    2 years later, the humour has died, only the ash of those who were foolish enough to engage in such acts remain. I..I stopped long ago and luckily I've survived these years, hiding and lurking..waiting to make my escape. Soon I say...I can feel it..I can smell it.

    Do you know what would be great? Actually create a unity bar and grill in Unity and make a chat client in unity.

    Challenge Accepted. ;) I wish. It's a personal goal of mine to create a Unity Bar and Grill website. So we would have more possibilities. But to be integrated into Unity, wow never thought of that.

    A mini MMO. *sigh*
    I can help with the design, but we'll need to get somebody who actually knows what they're doing to program it.

    I say stick with Skype for now.

    More of an IRC, with a back drop. No characters or anything, And I agree, skype is fine until I see some potential in expanding.

    To be honest, the reason I created the group in the first place was for the sole purpose of using Skype specifically. Otherwise I'd have joined the IRC.

    Of course. Skype is pretty much on top as far as web communication-isms go. No need to switch yet ;)

    Now that I think about it, this could be ultimately more helpful for collaboration than the forum (considering the group gets a decent amount of members)

    edit: accidentally sent a random contact to tatelax. sorry about that ;)

    Just want to chime in and say this a great group of people.

    I never talk but do read the chat. So if you're one to talk I'd suggest joining in.
