As a cost saving measure (keeping in mind the use and patterns of our Ventrilo Voice/text chat service) I have reduced the slots to 10 users at one time. This measure dropped a year of Ventrilo to less than $40.
Those who use Ventrilo will likely see no difference, it is very rare we exceed that many members there at once.
Thanks to Buzzbee for this recommendation, keeping costs down is the best way to make member donations stretch further and keep us always running smoothly.
AND... if you haven't ever tried Ventrilo, please give it a try!http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,5880.0.html
Takes only a minute to setup and you are talking with members using your computer or Iphone, or as I do using my Ipod. Not the PC software is free and Iphone/Ipod app is $4.99 at I tunes appstore - it is called Ventrilode.
