-------* Gavin is owner now -----------
------------------------------------------------

Did this already exist? Well, I made another. What is slack? Slack is basically invite-only chat with easy "room" creation - anyone can make a new room and invite people to it.

request to join here:

https://oscarbravo.herokuapp.com/

*
if the signup is broken, let me know**
I'm figuring this out, too.

slack channel once you've signed up is here:
-----
https://oscarbravo.slack.com/

You need to request an invite from the first link. I'll approve everyone immediately.

I added giphy integration so you can /giphy for that, but no other addons so far. I also created no additional channels - feel free to go nuts

I'll make a Sailor Moon app/slackbot/addon tonight if I have time, otherwise tomorrow morning I hope I can knock that out. I'll be building a simple rails/psql api to be hosted on Heroku solely for the purpose of hosting slack app endpoints: if anyone else is interested in writing addons, I'll give you github access to add new endpoints. I will require you write tests, though. I won't maintain your undocumented bs code! If you want something other than rails, give me your reasons. I'm doing rails only because writing an api takes literally minutes and I could do it in my sleep, but I'm open to learning something new, though my learning queue is pretty full atm.

I'll figure out the rest as I go along!

Someone volunteer to write a mod flag addon so we can summon them with commands!

There are no mods in this world: it's a flat hierarchy, so you do you.

Oh but I will ban literally anyone for behaving as though you are not on OB. All of the rules of OB apply: don't be an asshole, don't harass, be respectful because you are talking to human beings who are very real and all of them are awesome.

also things I would like people to volunteer for:
- custom loading messages (please stick to the "overly friendly puppy" tone of the current slack loading messages - I rather like them)
- other stuff I'll figure out later
PS: 1 last thing: if you're a coding newb but you know at least some ruby, let me know and we can work on it together. I'd like it if multiple people were writing new, unasked for slack apps that keep things weird.
PS: I should have like, a post that actually makes sense.

Anyone can create a new public channel. To "archive" a public channel, you must be an admin (can't have someone accidentally archiving the main channel!). Please feel free to make whatever channels you want.

Anyone can create a new private channel, which is invite only within the Oscar Bravo org. Anyone can archive a private channel - the purpose of this is to allow people to create/destroy channels without requiring an admin to know of their existence. Everyone is welcome to private chats. If there is an issue with random people archiving your private chats, we'll deal with that when we get there.

I have currently disabled random addition of addon apps: however, anyone can request any app to be added. If desired, I can switch this to "anyone can install whatever they want", but I don't want like, zendesk integrations or other largely useless shit cluttering my slack.
PS: Anyone can edit or delete posts. I will need a strong argument to mess with this.

Go here:
https://oscarbravo.herokuapp.com/

If you fill that out, you'll be in. This is using the genius slackin (https://github.com/rauchg/slackin) so I don't have to invite every single person individually. I want you in there chatting about your new waifu pillow asap!

Yeah, I did not organize this thread sensibly. It was very spur of the moment. I'll clean it up later 4 real
