Launching ProJerseyTalk on Slack!
« on: October 27, 2016, 11:57:20 AM »
Hello Everyone!

I have spent some time recently thinking about how I can add a new dimension to ProJerseyTalk that could make it more interesting to use, and more importantly have it be more mobile device friendly.  The forum's don't get a lot of activity anymore, since many people are more mobile device and social media oriented.  Some of you may have heard of Slack, or maybe even use it at work...but if you don't know what it is...it is a platform that allows teams to collaboratively communicate through web, mobile apps, and even a desktop application.  I think that Slack could be a cool platform for people to share their jersey pickups, engage in sports talk, etc...pretty much most of what happens in the forum.  I am hopeful that that if we have an easy to use application on mobile devices that can go anywhere, more members will be more willing to check into it and participate.  The Slack app is a free download on both iOS and Android.  And of course, you can access it from anywhere else through a web browser.

For now, I envision our Slack channel as an extension of ProJerseyTalk.  Since Slack is not technically forum software, our existing data and threads will remain here on the forum, and we can use Slack to share photos of new jersey pickups, and have jersey and sports related conversations. 

See this link for information about what Slack can do.  https://slack.com/is

We will be using the free version of Slack, which stores the newest 10,000 posts.  Because of how it is set up, I will have to send out email invitations to those interested in joining the ProJerseyTalk channel (https://projerseytalk.slack.com).  Please reply below with your email address if you are interested in joining our channel and would like an invite.  I hope to see you there!!
