PS1 Slack

There is a PS1 Slack channel at https://pumpingstation1.slack.com/

Slack has user guides at their Help Center.

https://join.slack.com/t/pumpingstation1/signup

To use the signup link it’s necessary to use an @pumpingstationone.​org email address.

Any other members may get access to the Slack Channel by sending a request by email to an administrator such as but not limited to press@pumpingstationone.org or pr@pumpingstationone.org. Email info@rt.pumpingstationone.org if you have questions about the PS1 slack.

Slack has an excellent mobile interface, and is often used as a team communication tool when participants rely on a mobile device. There is a web interface and there are OS-specific clients.

Be nice to each other, use things to do good deeds. Communicate early and often.

Fun stuff:

Slack Administration

  • The slack channel is administrated by pr@pumpingstationone.org, a number of board members and rdoeksen.
  • Users with a pumpingstationone.org email account can sign in without a manual step IIRC. See the join link above. Current and former board members and area hosts and volunteers have these email accounts.
  • PS1 is not charged for this service. We currently use the free plan.
  • The slack is running on Slack's servers and does not depend or rely on any PS1 resources. Slack maintains a status page at https://status.slack.com/ and communicates status from their twitter account, @SlackStatus. As long as Slack services are running, it is available whether or not the PS1 internet service, security certificate, DNS servers or any other systems are functioning.
