Domain Usage

I can get us a really great deal on a web domain. Since we're under 10 people, we can get Google Apps (for business) free of charge. The only cost would be my registering the domain, which I'll gladly do.

Two things before this happens: We need an organization name. This is what I want the domain to be named after (thegangname -> thegangname.com). We also need to have some solid progress before I can fully commit and purchase the domain.

Be aware that when the domain gets registered, anybody who isn't a beta tester will get a new Google account (merge-able with existing ones) with an email address at the new domain (example: nick at redthegreen dot com). Apps like Groups and Video will be usable. Google Sites also allows for wikis, blogs, and downloads (this is when these will be created). Chain emails will be quick and easy.

Basically, it's a long way away. I'm just letting you guys know the benefits of the domain so we can hopefully work toward it more easily.

Wow, that's cool! After we decide what to call the game, we really do need a group name.

Studio [something here] is a common template. Tongue

Another Planet finally has an official release! Download chapters 1 through 3 here! Thank you for waiting so long while I kept starting over.

We're discussing the group name in the other thread, so that's sorted...

It does seem that we're creating a proper game company here. Cool Tongue

Wow, this is going great. Wouldn't you guys consider meeting if the goofans game project is ever finished?

Online, maybe. In real life, unlikely.

Maybe Comicon 2013? It's in a city close to me, and it'd be a reason to visit. If one of you guys are going then I'll show up just for that. Tongue

I live in Colorado so unless the Comicon is there I doubt it... But I agree we should meet in real life someday. Espescially if our game gets popular. Perhaps it would be better when I know how to drive... Tongue

If we get a fan-base of over 100,000 people (not saying it's going to happen overnight) we should meet. Just for a developer's night out.

it would be INSANELY awkward, though. think about it: we all assign a voice for someone else, as it is natural, but when everyone is completely different from what we think, not much talking will go on. just everyone staring at each other.
maybe if someone made a skype-like program so we can talk on the internet.

Everyone create a Google Plus profile. I'll set up a meetup for us all.

Find me and add me to your circles via [nick at redthegreen . com] and I'll invite all of you to a call at a specific date and time (do be determined at a later date and time).

Depends if I'm old enough to get Google Plus by then. I'm turning 17 this year, so hopefully I'll be 18 by the time we get Beloh done, but maybe not.
Just noticed that I can make an account. Must have been a temporary thing during the initial release. I won't do it now though, I currently see no point.

It'd be cool if a couple of you guys could meet up somewhere in America (yeah, I can't be more specific than that) and the rest of us go on Skype/Google+ and we have this awesome group call.

Group video is free on Google+ but not on Skype. Google+ is browser-based while Skype requires 80mb+ worth of files.

Which would you rather use? Tongue

Well that's a rhetorical question isn't it!

Oh yeah, forgot about Skype group calls costing Tongue Google+ is the obvious choice, then.

I can't seem to be able to add red, well, for me, it's:

I added momo1526 to the group on G+. The rest of you tell me your google emails (also sign up for G+) and I'll add everyone. We can then have a set time at some point.

I have a deep-seated personal hatred of Facebook and Google, and I have Skype installed already, so no point for me really. Tongue

Also Google is one of my favorite companies overall.

I dislike their real name policy with G+ and adsense is terrible!

Ah, alright. In that case, it will have to be voice-only, which is also fine.

Everyone get a Skype username and post it here. I'll come up with a date/time.

Oh, and if you post your time zone it'd also be helpful for planning.

I already have MOM4Evr's Skype name and time zone.

I probably wouldn't have been allowed to use Google+ by my parents anyway.

However about Skype, there are 2 things. First, I'd have to use the family's Skype, since I can't make my own (not allowed, no point, etc). Second, it will be a rare and unexpected time when I can use the mic freely.

So sorry guys, for the time being, I'm out. I can type, but I'm afraid voice chatting is a no-can-do for me. I didn't expect we'd have a meeting now, anyway. I thought we were talking about, like, a year in the future or something.

Well it's just voice-chatting. I've done it with others on this site before, so I didn't really expect it to be this much of an issue. It can wait.

Joined: 12/23/2010

Unless it can wait 1.5 years, I'll be unsure of an exact time when I can chat. I can tag along with typing if you like, and then I might be able to catch one or two of you on Steam sometime when I'm available for voice chat.
