TSG Slack Server

Postby Petrus Aduro » Fri May 20, 2016 8:54 am

Hey all,

Vor, Hal, Buta and I have been messing around with a slack server. It's free, it's browser, desktop, or phone based. Basically, it's Echo Rock on steroids. You can link pictures, videos, websites, and talk. I think it would be a great way to get a little more interaction going. It's one thing to see someone playing a game on steam, but I think it'll be a lot better if we can send an announcement about what game we're about to play.

Send me your email if you want an invite to try it out - I think it'll be a good boost to activity. There are some ways to do forum integration with it as well.

(I'm aware of discord and that it has voice services, and if they ever get a phone app that works well I'm happy to swap to it instead of slack).


Hope to see a few (or all) of you there!

Ive used slack for school. It's pretty neat has ALOOOOOOOOOT of integration with other apps/RESTful stuff. Than again, this is mainly started from like business and project roots. There are some other alternatives but this is def one of the more popular.

the discord phone app does work pretty Damn well... Used it when I was in a hotel that didn't have enough bandwidth for voice chat plus a game. But yeah, slack is amazing... I use it for a good 8-9+ hours a day :-)

We tested the discord phone app out about 3 weeks ago, was taking 15 - 20 minutes for messages to hit the phone app pretty consistently.


Need an email address to add people to slack.

I wish there were a setting for push notifications like "every 20 messages" or something. Love getting notice of activity, don't love having my pocket and wrist vibrating every 10 seconds.

I have a list of about 20 words that notify me. So I don't get notified just because someone is talking, but if people are having a big conversation or talking about certain things (games, eve, pvp, etc) I'll get notified. Good compromise IMO.
