So slack is a service that’s like, part-chatroom, part-message board? I’ve been using it for the better part of a year now and am nothing but THRILLED with what it does and how it does it. There’s anonymity (you reg with whatever email you want and nothing else), settings/preferences up the wazoo, there’s CUSTOM EMOJIS, there’s like, 3 different ways to use it (browser, desktop app, mobile app) that are all great, no ads, and a billion other tiny little things that just make using it a dream.
Since apparently my objectum-sexual tendencies for cars (and ww2 planes these days) are coming back and I am hella into giant robots right now (and forever), and there’s a good number of people who fall into this camp too?? I’ve been thinking of starting one up and inviting whoever the fuck wants in to talk about shit in peace
– be adults only
– have whatever sub-boards (”channels”, officially) for whatever niche interests, for gifs, for writing, etc. whatever people wanted
– be open to machine fuckers of the hard IRL OS sort, all the way to optimus prime fuckers and everyone in between
– be an open invitation for whoever wanted in, regardless if you’re a friend of a friend or some rando wanting an invite
– be whatever the hell folks wanted it to be, really
Even though slack’s technically a chatroom, it’s like a message board in that you can pop in once a week and not feel particularly lost (and go back and re-read what you missed too), you can pop in every waking hour, doesn’t matter. did I mention that it’s anonymous?
if more than 5 people show interest then LET’S DO THIS SHIT
because tumblr sucks really hard at facilitating actual conversations between people.
