I would add that if you avoided the skype chat due to past ..... issues shall we say.....  things have changed.
Official channel is kept official (minus the minor slips from time to time!)

And if you want to cut up etc, the casual is as casual as ever.

Everyone has been very supportive (even in criticism) on the official if you have questions
or even need an opinion on something you're working on.

I was there for a while, until I saw so many posts. Each post popped up on my screen bottom right corner covering an area I was working on. Didn't matter what they said, it still popped up there. Then when 2 get to chatting, it became constant for a few mins.

yeah i filter out the casual chat when im working so that only the official pops up a notification, and also filter that too at times to only pop up on keywords IF it gets busy about a discussion I dont need to monitor.

it does have its pros and cons.

can also create and keep separate conversations among groups working on similar things as well, or for help.

To prevent constant messages popping up, you can go to the top of the Group window and fine:
Conversations-> Notification Settings
    Then you can either select "Do not notify me" or as many do select the third option, "Notify me only if these words are mentioned." Then you can set up your own custom filter.

I have a few key words including my name, and only get notified when these specific words are mentioned. Else it would be horrible for me when I am working as well. You can do that for each group are in, and each one can be different notification keywords as well.

I hope that can help.

It does help if you are only wanting to know when someone specifically wants to chat with you, but if someone just a had a question and was wanting help with it, then you would never know about it.   :-\

I have a few words on the list that covers that- most of the time. Some of the words i have on the list are:
        support, server, help, 3dsmax, max, maya, render, particles, terrain, down, etc.

Oddly, most of these words come up when it is about help and support, so I can either respond or watch and pipe in when I need to. Of course, everyone will have their own personalized set on what they want to be notified on.

So many things!

I have already built out the same channels as the forums. The multi-channel alone destroys skype and that is just 1 little thing.

Hello! Thank you for the info Nocake!
    I do not discount Discord at all, and I definitely see the benefits to it. There are more features than Skype has for sure. However, the one thing that skype has right now is that most people have it and it is convenient!

    This is something that I have thought about Discord on an official level- and will keep in consideration for when we have more staff/volunteers and active users.

Everyone already has discord as well! You can run it in a browser as well as standalone or on your smart phone.


Down with Skype and that clunky chat system!

BTW this is an unofficial channel and anyone can join!

Everyone is welcome to their opinion!  Even Mac users (bless their hearts!) :D

I don't have discord.... who's holding out on me??
I'm on a number of skype channels, and i use the notification settings to monitor those that i need
to pay attention to and those I do not.

But for the record:
the forums do not "bloop" me when someone has asked a question.
(no i will not turn on email notifications.. id never get any peace :) )
I'm generally busy coding etc or not even at home and I get skype notifications to
"help", "question", "my name" etc even on my cell on the Official channel. 
There are also folks in the channel(s) who may or may not be currently active with
their HE projects and may or may not monitor the forums as often, but are willing
to help in the skype channel.

Anyone can join the skype channel, they simply have to make it known they want to.
If you simply don't like skype, thats fine i understand that, but lets not bash it :P
There are plenty of us that are able to tolerate it and get use from the channels.

For those of you who don't want to join the skype channel, we know :D

Skype has been sending me late messages, when we use the channel every day, they don't show up until a few hours later, sometimes even the next day.
