I was in chat the other night, and I asked if there has ever been a consideration for setting up a Slack account that could be used instead of the site's chat. It was late at night so I don't think many people saw it, so I wanted to ask it in a more discoverable way. Has there ever been the thought of setting up a Slack? If so, what has prevented it from happening? One of the main things I can think of is that perhaps the worry would be people would just go straight to Slack, rather than the website, so Forum activity might drop off. I've also noticed that there are notifications in chat when there is a new post, or a new user account created, but these should be able to be replicated in Slack using either an integration with the forum software, or using possibly using web hooks. I use Slack every day for work, it's really fantastic for communicating. The ability to create threads means that if someone is scrolling back through the conversation, and they have a question about a specific message, they can create/add to a thread directly on that message, rather than having to awkwardly quote the message. Also, there is the ability to scroll back through messages (to a point if using the free version). Interested to hear the thinking around creating an Aus Christmas Lighting Slack.
