bright and frosty in Perthshire
Why did I think you were in Ireland @dharrigan?
I see what you did there :i_see_what_you_did_there_emoji:
Why doesn't this slack have /giphy support?
/gifs hook, gives you choices for you to select the appropriate one.
giphy has a shuffle button to choose different gifs before posting
I like that you can add captions to gif keyboard though
generaly we found with /gifhy, too often it would present something totally not related and potentially quite nsfw.
> Why doesn't this slack have /giphy support? maybe because we are on cheapskates tier and they want to pressurize us to upgrade?
I really wish Slack would give out free licenses for open source/community projects
I imagine it might seem a bit noisy if they did enable it 😂 I know I like a good gif throughout the day
So, we can get 85% off I'm told. We might still need some kind of sponsor, but that should make it affordable.
That is still extortion on the scale of our users: (16985×5.25)×0.15 = £13375.6875 / mo.
When billed annually
If billed monthly: (16985×6.30)×0.15 = £16050.825 / mo
> Most enterprise software pricing is designed to charge you per user, regardless of how many people on your team are actively using the software. At Slack, you only get charged for what you use, so you don’t pay for the members who aren’t using Slack. And if someone you’ve already paid for becomes inactive, we’ll even add pro-rata credit to your account for the unused time. Fair’s fair. Learn more
Yeah, I highly doubt we have 16k active users
It would be interesting to know what the current active user count is
Would admins be able to see those stats?
I'm trying to remember where I heard about another language community qualifying for this discount
After reading the docs I'm worried it was done because they actually have a tax registered org
The last time we looked at pricing it was about $8,500 / month based on active users. That's still $1,275 / month with an 85% discount. A thousand quid a month.
And part of the reason we don't have giphy is that some people tend to overuse it and it can be very noisy and annoying (when you have thousands of people who want to have quiet technical chats). And, yes, it could be NSFW too. And we've already had problems with porn spammers here (although not lately... touch wood).
And we have very limited integrations on the free plan so we reserve them for things that might be globally useful for thousands of people (which means pretty much nothing). We have two logging bots (if you want history from early this year, go search in Zulip, hopefully the clojureverse.log log browsers will be up-to-date and running again sometime -- but, again, that's a time and cost issue which a lot of people just don't seem to appreciate).
Also, on the subject of global communities that are sensitive to their members' actual needs (rather than "I want X"), I've been in Slack spaces that banned because it can trigger epileptic events in people who are very photo-sensitive 😐
(I'm reminded of that by @dharrigan’s use of above)
i don't. irc is quite sucky
We do have a bridge to IRCCloud installed here, if that's any help 🙂 I used that for a while at $5/month so I "didn't miss anything" but now I use Slack for work and several other communities I have no reason not to also use Slack for Clojure...
I'm being a bit half-jokey. Slack has conquered the world (we use it at my workpace too). But i still use IRC for other stuff 🙂
i know you were being jokey - but irc is pretty rubbish. you have know idea of who you are talking to, which is ok sometimes and not others, getting a nick which can't be stolen is beyond 99% of the population, and netsplits
