Also @russian can we start a Slack channel so developers and users can talk about the platform and in drone racing community its very effective. I could start one if you like but It would be better if you start one. Here the site https://slack.com/ (its basically a IRC for developers and users to hangout and a great way to expand the user group).

I guess I am officially old now? How is https://bryanhadaway.com/how-to-create-a-slack-chat-community-with-auto-invites/ the way to share Slack channel? Can someone please explain why is this the way to make a channel public? Why the hassle with "auto-invite" with deploying some random app to some random container?

In the recent month https://rusefi.slack.com/ has really taken off - we are now getting towards 10K messages there.

Reminder that some cool things are happening on the Slack channel. For example, documentation strategy is being discussed at https://rusefi.slack.com/messages/CF8NQ1RU6/

A major issue with Slack is the fact that free accounts are limited to 10,000 messages which means content is automatically purged.

We do not follow the discipline of documenting stuff on the forum, thus we have a ghost town on the forum and no institutional memory whatsoever. Myself I have very poor memory and I need structured notes - thus I need the forum.

I am afraid that we got addicted to Slack and while that amazing tool gave us a lot it has also taken a lot from us.

There are some good alternatives such as rocket.chat, which can be (free/paid) SaaS or self-hosted.

Data can be imported: https://rocket.chat/docs/administrator-guides/import/slack/
