Have you done Zoom meetings with your members or other members of forums? I haven't done it but thought it would be fun with members I don't mind seeing what I look like.

No, not yet. Do you think it will have some effect?

Would be nice to celebrate an event that way. With everyone online and rely on video or audio calls, it is easier to gether a conference on almost any subject. And it is affordable too.

I've only used Zoom for school. I don't particularly like Zoom. I think that I would use other solutions for video calling people on the Internet. For people I know well, I would use Facebook. For people I don't know in real life, I would use Discord.

I've never been into anything audio or video. I did use a Webcam a long time ago with an epal. I can see the appeal of it though for families that are far away or to do office calls when not everybody is local & able to get to the physical location.

It is hard to avoid work-related video calls recently. Everything is now online and we cannot say no when people at work want to talk face to face. But for everything else, text can be useful.

Discord is fine. A lot of people use it, but not popular among office users.

We can do that for our third anniversary. It is 6 months more. But by then we can get new members and get to know each better.

The problem is internet is a place where we can hide our identity and some of us like to keep it that way.

I know that Zoom had a lot of security issues when it first launched. I'm sure they've sorted most of that out, but I still prefer to use Google Meet or other services for things like virtual appointments and the like.

I've participated in video chats with other folks I've met through forums. However, it is not something that I've arranged for my own forum's members. For me, I would hesitate because I wouldn't want to scare anyone off. Perhaps if we had 20+ members logging in daily I would consider pitching the idea to my members.
