A conference call - with often not so good quality lines - is not easy.

about the quality, based on my experience, this heavily depends on people's equipment. Not all, but most errors are due to hands-free phones or bad lines on the dialler's side. However, my feeling tells me that phone lines are more reliable than PC-based solutions, so using Skype, Google Hangout and such would IMHO create more problems than it solves. I am open for tests, of course.

My question is specifically why people do not want to join, so if anyone else has problems with the phone quality, please let us know. Otherwise, I don't count it in as a reason for not joining. :)

And many people only know each other a little.
- So a clear agenda helps: topics + description + what is expected in
the call (collection or discussing or making a choice).

Yes, indeed, that's something that was simply missing for April's call, due to the lack of time, and I am sure this contributed to the lack of interest.

- And then that the call is done so that it is easy to have a good
discussion and so more. But often this already is difficult when people
meet, so without seeing each other ...

So, you are proposing video meetings, or adding pictures to the wiki so we "see" each other?

- And then when people want to say something, that they start with
mentioning their name ...


- If it is for discussing random ideas, the participants should submit
those on the wiki before the meeting.
