count me in for a donation to host vent for a couple of months.
I reckon we should get a 100 person for the first 2 months just in case it is hugely popular, and see how we go from there.
Also start a week before launch?
Also because im in Aus i'd be more than happy to volunteer my services as an admin/moderator for the vent/mumble server to police it during Aus hours (early morning NA). I've been captain of 3 clans over the years (battlefield) so i do have experience in this, but obviously it would require you're approval as i'm not THAT well known round here.
Don't sell yourself short, Autti. I just got back from a 5-month medical leave (long story), but I remember you from last year. You don't talk much (as your post count indicates), but I'm pretty sure I recall you always having something constructive to say on the threads you did comment on. My point is: I know who you are, and personally, I would have no problem with you being a mod.
P.S. I'm actually not sure how much influence I have around here; I am an Ink Slinger, does that give me street cred?
