more on ivisit
- Dear EVonliners:
After Vance's message about iVisit yesterday, I contacted my dear
friend, Claire Siskin, about it. I'd like to share with you what she
has to say (with her permission):
"In my experience, iVisit is fairly reliable for a chat with up to 10
or so participants. Occasionally the video "poofs" or disappears and
the user has to re-connect. I don't know how it would be if there were
more participants. I don't have enough experience with other software
to be able to compare it."
Then I remembered that during our October teleconference Claire had to
through out this pervert who suddenly showed up. So I also asked her
how to deal with that. Here's her two cents:
"The weird people on iVisit . . . are a problem. They are supposed to
stay in the "Romance" section, but they don't. In my experience, there
are 3 ways of dealing with this. One is to have a password-protected
room. The other is to have a moderator with a password who can "boot"
people out if they don't behave. The other is to just ignore these
people, and then they go away after a few minutes."
Though my limited experience has been convincing, I guess iVisit is
out of the question for Ismail's session mainly for the participant
I hope this sheds a little more light about it for all of you.
