Oh yes, you read correctly; I will soon be hosting the first ever, official Project Fanboy Skype Party!
What is Skype?
Well, it's basically just like your average instant messenger, except it's awesome when it comes to voice/video chatting. If you're interested, see the official Skype website to download the safe program for free. Calls to other Skype users are completely free, too.
You don't need a microphone to use Skype, but you will need one to talk and participate in our Skype parties! A webcam that picks up audio works as well. Microphones, webcams and headsets are generally pretty cheap - you can pick them up anywhere.
What are we going to talk about?
What are we going to talk about at these Skype Parties? Anything and everything! There will be drinking, there will be laughing and there will be tons of mandatory fun! It'll be a general chat type atmosphere where Project Fanboy members will be able to get to know one another on a whole new level. We might talk about comic books, movies, video games or just life in general.
But if you're not talkative, don't expect to stay around too long. Conference calls can hold only so many people, and, depending on how many interested people there are, and how many actually attend, not everyone may be able to take part in the session at once.
So, are you interested? If so, post here and include your Skype username (the name you signed up with, not the name you changed it to.) Please be sure to add me on Skype. My username is scottwilliams32.
I'll let you know when these chat parties will take place, though dates and times will be subject to change. I'll post them in this thread as well as in the Upcoming Events Calendar on the home page. All times and dates will be in EASTERN time zone.
If we can get Stephen in on these parties, maybe we can even record them and include parts of the parties in future episodes of the Fanboy Buzz podcast.
