    We have slack at work, which I have not used yet because I am lazy, but I know some of my co-workers do not like it. I will have to talk to them on Monday to get more information.
    if it makes you feel any better, I've used Slack for work and everyone I know loves it.

    also, I'm confused as to why people having Slack at work already means they couldn't use it for pin pals -- one of Slack's awesome features is that not only can you switch between channels inside your organization, you can also switch between organizations. Within your client you can be signed into your work's Slack group as well as the pin pal group. Each Slack group is essentially an IRC server -- you can set up channels, private groups, as well as direct messages with all of the members.

    UPDATE:

    I think it's safe to say that a lot of people are already open to Slack. More than half of us have moved, so again, please click here to join if you'd like!

    Just a heads up for those signing up for slack, make sure to use an email address you are comfortable with everyone being able to see.

    Also you can change your slack email for a given team at any time. For example, I put one out there that is pretty easy to find.

    Solution:

    Install a Telnet Client
    go to yay.tim.org 5440

    Be old school, create a pinny room, draw pins in ascii.

    Fixes all problems

    I just want mommy and daddy to stop fighting!

    Or I could just download both. And then play favorites. Only turn on notifications for one.....

    There has been some debate over the past few days about switching from WhatsApp to Slack. The consensus is we should stop debating and have a vote.

    If you have used the community chat you are familiar with WhatsApp and if you would like to investigate Slack you can get an auto invite here: http://pinnypalsslackin.herokuapp.com

    Pfft, these things never last. Like pirates vs ninjas, cake vs pie, and vi vs emacs before it, people will identify the proper choice and everyone will be happy.

    It's Vim. Vim is the right choice.

    Hello everyone. There is now a bot in Slack's #trade channel that will do things like save/retrieve your lanyard link and do some basic pinmash lookups. Let me know if you have ideas for new features you'd like to see, as well as any and all problem reports.

    '@pinnybot help' should get you started.

    Thanks!

    In my options for slack, I turned off "auto-expand images" and that has solved my entire problem with giphy.
