VOIP help on Linuxquestions

I wanted to know if it would be possible to setup some sort of Voip help on Linuxquestions? If there was a TeamSpeak server that people could logon to and ask their questions it would speed up the whole problem solving aspect of Linuxquestions. I've been thinking of setting up a teamspeak server on my machine so that the people on the threads I respond to can speak to me directly. Of course there would be the language barrier problem that might require different teamspeak servers for each language, but I think it would be a good idea no matter what. Any ideas?

The language barrier would be very tough to overcome as our member-base is increasingly international. The other issue is, since all the people answering questions are volunteers, asking them to be answering live VOIP calls is not something I would be prepared to do. That being said, we do have a couple interesting things in the works

I don't think VOIP will be a big hit in help forums as big as these because of the sheer number of members we have. VOIP may be suitable for other applications on the web but not for online help sites with huge traffic.
