Trying out Slack for Textpattern support and real-time chat

Hi. I’ve been away for a bit. I’m back now. Happy 2015, and all that stuff.

I’ve been trying out Slack for a couple of small projects I’m working on and I figured it might be fun (and even useful) to try the same for real-time Textpattern support stuff.

I know about the #textpattern IRC channel that was popular for a while, and then died off. It’s been recommended that I would be better spending energy on a similar IRC room to enable this real-time stuff. Maybe that’s right.

So, here’s the thing. I set up a Slack for Textpattern thing to see if it works for the Textpattern user community.

It might be great, it might be awful. It might not even exist as of February 2015. Who cares? It’s worth a try. JFDI, and all that. Things might be a little bumpy initially, but I absolutely think this is worth a shot.

I’m looking for some people to try this out with me to see if it’s viable. You’ll need a Slack account (free) to login and you’ll need to let me know what your email address is so I can invite you; I promise (seriously) not to share, sell, pass on or transfer your email address.

Send me an email using the forum link, and I’ll add you in.

Use the signup form to request an invite.

Pool’s closed. Thanks for playing, everyone.

Re: Trying out Slack for Textpattern support and real-time chat

I’ve been using slack for a few collaborative projects that I am working on. I love the fact that it works on all devices as an application, app or even a straight forward web page when all else fails. The projects I am working on in slack are smallish so not much info is needed there but I am not sure how it would behave or function when there are 1000s of little posts. It’s worth a try I think:)
