Slack - New option for unmoderated, off-topic conversations

In order to ease some burden off of KGI's forum, I thought this might be a useful tool for people to hop on and use for general discussion.


What it is NOT:


It's more akin to IRC, and with the free license is limited to a revolving 10k messages across the entire team. So this should not be used for historical reference.

This is not meant to supplant any other alternatives out there. Hopefully, it merely supplements and serves are more of a drive by "jump in and chat in real time" solution.

This is not moderated, until I start get C&D notices from Slack.

This is not a forum, but I have added some channels which align loosely to common topics.

This is not an avenue for porn, illegal, or illicit activity. It will be the responsibility of the collective to bubble up infractions and help deal with them.

This is not a direct attack against this forum or its staff. I'm actually trying to help a little here.


What is IS:


Open to anyone

Open to any discussion.

To the second question, yes, it has been written and only remains to be done.

Crap!  Been on the forum over 12 years and set a personal goal to qualify for the hidden forum when it was established a few years ago.  At my rate of posting, it would only have taken another 15 years to get to 5,000 posts.  Alas, another dream dies on the vine.
