Slack has always been our home, however, the past couple of years, the TastyIgniter community has grown and we are starting to feel the limitations of Slack’s free plan.
Slack has been invaluable for engaging with the community in a more direct way and provided a platform for new members of the community to participate and work with others. The only issue was that the free version used by our community simply does not have the size and versatility needed for a community, lacking moderation features, spam filtering, complete message histories, unlimited file sharing, and much more.
In an effort to address these problems and limitations, we made the decision to switch to Discord, a communication platform designed for online communities. A number of large open source communities have also switched from Slack to Discord. It includes an unlimited number of users, unlimited file uploads (with a size limit per file), unlimited message history, and very cool tools for moderation and spam filtering. It also includes voice chat, video chat and screen sharing, which will make the community even more interactive.
For now, we will maintain Slack to ensure smooth migration for another month, on March 9th, we will shut down Slack entirely. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to our new community!
