    New Discord (Not Slack) Channel for the forum

    If anyone remembers our old IRC, then you'll remember how fun that was to be able to chat in real time and also connect with others more easily and quicker. Well, IRC is as old and dusty as my grandfathers balls and its 2016, so heres an alternative:

    Slack <- URL

    If youre not familiar, its a browser, desktop and mobile app that is basically an IRC chatroom. Easy to setup and not custom servers to run with it. I done the liberty of setting up a "team" (it was built for corporations) that people can join using their email.

    the only info you need to know is that our team name is : teh-nook.slack.com. After you attempt to join the team you'll go through the registration process or what have you and you'll end up in the chat. It houses multiple rooms if wanted, private messaging and theres ability to add features like magic 8-ball and Giphy integration - you know, the funny stuff.

    I can also send invites to your email if you prefer that may guide you easier than I can.

    If anyone is interested, its available 24/7 now and more reliable than IRC - so no worries. If anyone has any problems let me know and maybe I can guide you.

    I don't know what to do either. I started to follow the instructions and now my iPhone has been in my butt for hours. I don't think this is the way it supposed to work.

    Is there any way we can just extend the new chat box so it lasts longer or something? I have a feeling that would be the best option instead of going to yet another site and signing up for something else when we all already come here as it is.

    If you meant activity, it will stop refreshing if you are inactive for 2 minutes. If you mean it should be bigger, full page is available in http://www.teh-nook.com/forum/mgc_cb...o=view_chatbox

    The instructions should be pretty straight forward. Screenshot where you are stuck? Or give me your email, could be invite only since its corporate tech

    Also, I wouldn't call it another website. It's an app. You got a smartphone? Just download the app. Even your desktop all the same

    I can't do anything with my phone. It's still in my butt. Very inconvenient.

    It says I'm not a part of the group or my email isn't associated. Spose we should all add emails and once we get a couple OPs we can self-sustain the invite list.

    I don't have a phone.

    Larry, I was referring to the full-screen. It doesn't seem like it holds conversation for very long, unless it's just on a setting to remove after so many days, which I don't think would be an issue.
