Doobs,

I’m pleased to announce that starting this Monday (10/29/12) the DotaNoobs community will be moving to a new TeamSpeak3 server! Fueled by our growing demand for more community management features, Teamspeak will be our official voice communication platform moving forward. Just like Mumble we’ll be putting together a post/page to help our users get the TeamSpeak3 client downloaded and configured correctly, and the staff will be at hand for one-on-one help where necessary. I’ve included the important dates below so please take note and plan your play/setup time accordingly.
Also in addition to better serve our growing community we have added FallenElf, Gambit, Shane and UnoPolak as staff members. These guys have be instrumental in helping DotaNoobs thrive and flourish over the past year and we're super excited to have them on staff!

Server Info: voice.dotanoobs.com

Oct 28th – Last official Sunday Inhouse Games on Mumble

Oct 29th – All official DotaNoobs Admin/Staff Functions are moved to TeamSpeak

Oct 31st – All Channels Removed from Mumble and voice functions turned off. Message of the Day and
Channel message will be changed to direct users to the new server. Boo!

Nov 4th – First Sunday Inhouse Games Hosted on new Server

Nov 12th – Mumble server switched off and no longer active.

Reason for Switch

•Better Community Management Tools – Popup Message of the Day with HTML, Channel Description Tags with HTML, user warning list shareable between mods, back end access for scripts and plugins (team randomizer automatically populating names), User Pins for quick role identification (Admin Pin, Mod Pin, Coach Pin, etc)

•Equal Quality as mumble, but with a much more robust user interface

•Mobile Tools and client are extremely mature products

•We’re Growing so fast that a move at a later time might be even more painful

Thank you guys in advance for your cooperation in getting this move rolling quickly and smoothly!

-DN Staff

(P.S. If you’d like to start using the TeamSpeak server before Monday PM Binary, Uno, Fallen, Gambit, Shane or myself and we’ll get you the connection info)

In light of this VOIP change, we might want to update the "download mumble" and "join us on mumble" links in the top right corner of the forums ;]
