Fork me on GitHub

For now I don't see the need to have separate channels for blog posts and "proper announcements", but I also think that those channels should still be limited in the amount of follow-up discussions.


I kind of begged out early on with the discussion but I was warned by someone that Slack gets fussy when a non-paying group gets over 7,500 members and we’re getting close. Is there an exit strategy?


So far there hasn’t been a viable alternative suggested that has been acceptable to folks...


My guess is, as long as slack is working, the pain to switch is not big enough


…and a lot of possible solutions have been looked at. I still rather like Gitter but quite a few folks who were looking into alternatives felt it was very restrictive after Slack — and I admit that in terms of community moderation, it’s nowhere near as good as Slack.
