We are going to implement new discussion/ post notification in chat clients such as Slack. The question is how many of these we should consider implementing. Slack for sure, since its very popular, and we already built the support for it a while ago just not announced. But what’s the appetite for Discord or Telegram?
Just notification. No replies. I believe you can post a Slack chat transcript as a new discussion to HO, but I don’t know how useful that is.
I put my notification on Slack, and it definitely helps me pay attention to the site more by telling me when there are stuff of interest on the site. The forum software also supports other forms of notification, but for people who use Slack often this notification is helpful if you aren’t looking at the site frequently.
I’m active in a number of Reddit subs that link to Discord specifically for chat. There may be other connections I’m not aware of. I’m not active in chat on Reddit some I’m not a good source. I’m just flagging that there is use. I can’t even speak to how much use there may be.
