    Official CA.O Hangout (G+)

    Hey everyone!


    Most of you might know about the feature that Google+ is offering to everyone. Google Hangouts.
    This feature has gotten quite popular over a short amount of time because people can easily hang out together to chat, voice-chat or even share their screens.

    A few art communities already opened an permanent hangout for them, so I thought that it's finally time that ConceptArt.Org gets it own hangout as well.
    [B]
    To join the "Official CA.O Hangout" you need an G+ account and then press the link here:
    https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/c...1d5m4mbfel1f5k


    I hope this one is already permanent, so it stays alive, even if no one is in it.
    We're still testing this feature out, so please report if something doesn't work.

    Have fun and get to meet some forum members in person!

    Cheers!
    Nemome

    You sound lonely, Nemome, lol.

    Pretty cool feature. I've got a google account so I'll try to sort out the plus thing at some point. Might not be today though as I've got other things going on.

    Haha, nah Candra!

    I was just unsure if the link still works but I saw someone in there so the link directs all people to the same hangout now.

    Hey Nemome,

    Same profile picture.
    Nice work on setting it up.
    Ever just woken up and gone "shit, does the world around me exist"?

    I'll join and could become a bit of a permanent resident, once I get back to hk

    Will it have more info, updates, and answers than twitter (or the rest of the internet), the next time CA conks out for a week or three, or otherwise goes wrong?

    The link takes me to a google play app that I can't download anyway, so it's not filling me with hope.

    It should take you to the hangout. Works for all people.
    Are you using an mobile device?

    And you're getting regular updates on our facebook group. All informations were provieded there during the whole downtime and when the domain was working, it also showed a link to the facebook group itself.

    A few people where in it around lunch time. I had a great time talking to them and three of us were painting. But people slowly get to use the place, so it'll take a few more days til people will (hopefully) be in there more regulary.

    Everything is working fine for me.
    If your screen is flipped than check your hardware setting.

    Seems like the permanent hangout is working; maybe we should replace the link in the CA top bar with one that goes directly to the hangout instead of this thread.

    I'm new here and could always use some advice / criticism. Feel free to take a peak at my sketchbook if you have the time.

    I'm in there quite a bit, but it's mostly just me and 2 others. Then there is 3 or 4 who come in maybe once a week for a short period of time. It's pretty dead in there to be honest, so feel free to come liven it up a bit. Bare in mind that it automatically switches on your camera and mic, so switch them off on the page it starts at if you don't want to be suddenly exposed, lol. I've seen people come in and just sit there in silence, not realising their camera is on .

    I will be logging in regularly. I'll be making sure I log on whenever I am painting, which is 4-5 nights a week.

    I am new to google hangouts. When you say "paint", do you mean there's a hangouts app for that where you all collaborate, or are you streaming your desktops...? Am considering showing up at some point.

    Not sure if you were referencing my post Kuroyue. What I meant by "paint" was just that I would be checking out Google Hangout while I was also digitally painting on my wacom. I didn't mean that I would be painting inside of the Google Hangout plugin or whatever.

    Hope that helps.

    The main way is to use the built in screen sharing capability of Google Hangout, you press a button and it simply shares what you're looking at. So if you're using Photoshop or whatever, the rest in the room can see it. There are plugins available, but not many, I'm sure there will be more in the future. There is a drawing one, but it is for technical drawings only, and charts and stuff. There may be a better drawing plugin available in the future.

    This sounds like a very practical feature for the CA community, I will be taking part in the not too distant future.

    I was wondering if this is still active, I just recently downloaded the Hangouts and G+ apps but I'm not able to find the group's name when I search for it and the link only sends me to my phone's app store. Anyone able to help?

    Yeah your right. Is there any chance of getting the constant same hangout again? Quite a few of us were hanging out in there on a regular basis, and it would be ashame not to be able to hangout with them again.

    Not working either.

    I think we should start something like an event page which would lead to the hangout. That`s how peeps at polycount forums fixed it.

    Edit - new link on page #2
