Teamspeak and Whatsapp usage
« on: October 13, 2017, 07:22:12 am »
I have noticed a nice uptick in TeamSpeak usage by our membership on Sundays. I would like to see this usage continue and hopefully grow. I firmly believe that when you hear someone's voice you start to grow more connected to them.

I, like many of you, have played other games besides Sim racing. One of those games that I had the most fun and involvement was EvE Online. In that game Voice communication was essential for fleet movement, battle co-ordinations, and general bafoonery. But what it did in addition this was make the players more connected. I looked forward to talking to the other players. I felt closer to them than other players with whom I did not have voice communications with.

I think we have a great group here, but I think it could be even better. TeamSpeak (TS) usage is not mandatory, but certainly encouraged. So if you have not yet installed and tried using TS, now is the time. If you are not sure how to DL and install it ask and we will get you all setup.

We also use a phone app called "Whatsapp". It is a communication app through either the apple Istore or Google Play store (Android). It is good for communication when you are not at our computer. It also is THE fastest way to make an administrator aware of a problem or concern. If you decide to se it with us let me, Matt, Simon, or Tom know and we can get you added to the Whatsapp group.

Hope to see everyone on Sunday.

I feel the same. Always nice to put a voice (or even a face) to a name.

Forum activity is also encouraged ;)

We have a great group of people here :)

See you on track!

Also remember, when using Teamspeak, no talking (disable mic to be sure no other voices carry over either) during quali and race :)
