Title: Pixelation Slack
Post by: Atnas on October 21, 2015, 11:23:36 am
Hello! Come join us at https://wayofthepixel.slack.com

Please PM your email to me (http://wayofthepixel.net/index.php?action=pm;sa=send;u=5745) and I will invite you when I receive it.

Over the years we've had an active IRC, sporadic google hangouts, a lonely skype group, and probably a few other smaller initiatives to help us chat and share our work.

To anyone who hasn't used a team chat like slack or hipchat before, it's essentially a feature rich IRC that works out of your web browser, so you don't need to install any software if you don't want. Here is a video from Slack, explaining the concept.


Hope to see you there!

There has been a lot of activity today! So much that we now have a General, Critique, and Gamedev channel! Keep on sending those emails and showing up, it's super fun.

This is the perfect place to get instant feedback on a piece if you're not sure if it warrants a post, or dont want to show the whole world. We have 14 people signed up, with about half that regularly showing up to chat.

I'm still confused. Do you need to sign up to Slack first or is that only for creating a new chat?

you need to be invited to slack via email.  The link you receive in your email will have signup instructions

Nobody uses voice to communicate. You will wake up to hundreds of new messages in the general channel. :) It's just like IRC, but more cohesive and with inline image previewing, and a whole lot of other stuff. Please join us!

Just a note because I've invited quite a few people who provided me with their emails and haven't joined, there should be an invite sent to your email address you need to follow up with.

Have to say the slack is great for getting in touch and just hanging out while doing pixel art :D  :y: :y:

I think I've found a better software :D
It's called Discord (https://discordapp.com/) and is much better than most chat softwares. You can use it without downloading it! You can download it here (https://discordapp.com/apps)

Personally I prefer Slack over Discord
Although largely they are the same (i think not many people here would use the voice chat!)

I left slack today(deactivated account). Had not been around much over the past few weeks anyway. Felt like it was too much of a distraction from things I should rather take care of in my life. I will of course keep lurking on the boards.  :)

The Pix Slack helps keep me sane while at work, and if I'm on I like to be discussing stuff I care about or hue shifting oded's mockups.

I usually stick to discord, I feel like it's the most likely candidate for "Skype killer" and I eagerly await and support that usurping.
Skype got BAAAAD.

Heh, that was my old room in Hamburg (~3.5 years ago). They had to go for the same reason (distraction). Also... I've been dealing with major depression and social phobia and alcoholism (and therapy didn't help but rather made it worse I think). I like slack too but too much, so much that I kept trying to obsessively read and keep up with everything in all the channels when I was active, so the only way to keep me from doing that I thought was to cut myself off from accessing it at all (I should probably leave Twitter as well).

Maybe I'll return someday when I have developed strategies to successfully manage my time and my obsessions.  :)

Thank you Atnas, I too enjoyed our discussions (more so in the earlier phases when there was not so much noise, heh, but I am not blaming anyone except myself for my incapability to filter or ignore the noise). Like I said, I'll stick around, as I do not plan to run away never to be seen or heard of again and I definitely want to keep exploring art.

Aaaand I'm back.  :crazy: Well that did not last long but I just felt way too disconnected after leaving.  :'(

Hopefully I'll manage to do a better job at ignoring noise this time. 8)
