Slack - Web Client and Phone App - Guild Chat Offline!

Postby Stoic » Sat Jan 24, 2015 3:10 pm

One of <Out of Mobs> defining attributes or even 'virtues' is that we are a community of working folks, who do our civil, familial and social duties 40 hours a week and then come home to be the real virtual badasses that we are. So the dilemma is that during our offline hours we can't communicate in real time outside of the Forum mode which is a whole different type of communication; one that revolves around people posting longer and more thought out opinions or reactions to which others can then respond. The Mobile app gives us the option to talk to guildies who are actively online (requiring a PC, authentication, or mobile app themselves). So what we've decided to try is not an IRC like many guilds use but a much, much better service called Slack. This service is both a fully functioning web client for chatting, and also a smartphone app. This gives our guildies the freedom to chat regardless of location and one of the best things is that it logs you into the conversation as it is, you don't have to try to guess what people are talking about, its all right there. The setup is really simple:

We originally thought people could auto-join but that's not available to the free version so just PM Stoic with your Email address and we'll directly invite you!

For the phone just the character name doesn't seem to work. Tried Wylds and Wyldroll but it still asks for @Xxx

huh Wyld I didn't have that issue when I did it on the phone, perhaps its because I created the account on PC first?
If you are having trouble send me a PM, I'll invite you directly via email.

To start using Slack, you'll need to be invited by your team administrator.


Can't seem to auto join as it's asking me to create my own company. Shall i PM you my email address?

yeah, I'm not sure why its not auto-joining. Either way if you PM me your email address I can get you in easily that way.

I'll have to talk w/ Logii to see if there is a way to auto-join

I joined by his email to me. From there I was able to get the app on my phone working fine

Update: Please refer to the giant red text on the OP

Is this like Line, or is it boring? At least with Line there's a lot of stickers and it's not so complicated to set up.

The Out of Mobs slach channel, much like the guild itself, is dead.

Few of us are using a Slack created for the new guild, if you're interested in joining up. Talk to Logiibob in game.
