Since the rebirth of this project is setup in a hierarchy this time, I feel that we should probably setup a standard of communications for meetings between members and directors then directors and project managers.

I actually thought of two ways of doing this:
Use a messenger program.  I, personally, cast my vote in for using STEAM since you can have multiple people in the conversation.
Or we could get a ventrilo.

The other idea is to actually make use of ZFGC's chat room if it still exists, since anyone can access it via the java applet.
I actually really think this is a good idea.

I think Steam is great, as is Facebook. The new groups feature is really useful for communication; I use it for my actual job and for a Minecraft server I play on.

Also, I would recommend starting a new IRC channel specifically for the project.

Perhaps maybe even a Ventrillo server? Not sure how difficult those would be to make though.

I really must agree on this one, I don't know the advantage or disadvantage, but doing meetings and such will help things speed up. I really don't mind what we use ;3!

I recommend Google Talk because it has auto logging enabled.

Also while we're here, a meet time needs to be setup with foreshadower, bludleef, and one of the project managers to discuss how we're going to handle Game Design.

Any way is fine with me. As far as availability goes Weekends are best for me as I work on the weekdays.  Friday nights after 5pm(central) are the best as I have to wake up early Sunday for church, but if it must be done I may be able to make myself available for a chat at other times.  I have plenty of down time at work, but chatting on the computer when you have a bunch of kids you are supposed to be teaching in a classroom is kind of frowned upon. XD

I agree about sometime this weekend getting together with the project managers.  I have some exams before the weekend so most of my time should be dedicated to study.

Well, if everyone that is willing to wants to post STEAMs and whatnot, I(or mods) can modify my original post to make a list.
For Sunday, probably around 3:00pm-ish should be good I would think.

Due to my job and courseload, my schedule fluctuates wildly from week to week. I really can't guarantee I can make ANY meeting time. You guys just plan one and I'll meet whenever I can. As most of the story is already written out, my role here is going to be pretty minor anyway.

EDIT: My steam ID is hadoken54.

I'll be driving back home for 6 hours from my dad's house on Sunday, however I'll be available during the evening if I'm needed.

That shouldn't be...can anyone else confirm that?

Also, we need a meeting time for Sunday, what's good for everyone.  Please also state your timezone.  I'm good anytime EST.
