      • Oh Scenic also has a mailing list, nice.
      • Nicd-
        I've found Slack much more enjoyable with IRCCloud, because I don't have to use Slack :D
      • so now I hang around the Elixir lang Slack again
      • nox
        Slack is still a closed platform which is not accessible much to blind people.

      • Nicd-
        yes I wouldn't make my own community chats there
      • my own project has a combined Gitter–Matrix–IRC channel :P
      • nox
        ??
      • Rust is switching to Discord and I'm facepalming hard.
      • Nicd-
        from what?
      • sevenseacat
        discord is nicer than slack
      • nox
        Both are not accessible to blind people,
      • both are closed platforms,
      • both have ToS that forbid third-party clients.
      • Nicd-
        a blind dev at our work uses Slack pretty proficiently though
      • sevenseacat
        the first is a problem, I don't really see the latter two being so
      • Nicd-
        and wee-slack (WeeChat integration) is made by a Slack employee, IRCCloud also uses an official Slack API
      • nox
        Nicd-: IRCCloud is not free.
      • Nicd-
        but it's third party
      • so I'm not sure about that ToS part
      • sevenseacat
        not everything in life is free
      • nox
        IRCCloud has an agreement with Slack.
      • sevenseacat: Lol, ok whatever.
      • Nicd-
        and WeeChat?
      • nox
        Nicd-: The WeeChat thing can be discontinued at any moment and be banned by them given their ToS disallow third party stuff.
      • BeerLove_ has quit
      • Nicd-
        can you point out from their ToS?
      • icanhazbroccoli joined the channel
      • nox
        Nicd-: Ah sorry, that's just Discord. IIRC Slack just reserves the right to control which app is allowed and which isn't.
      • Nicd-
        I'd imagine that's standard
      • for services run by companies
      • sevenseacat
        that makes complete sense
      • za1b1tsu joined the channel
      • nox
        That makes no sense to use for a FOSS project when you claim to promote accessibility and diversity, but whatever.
      • Nicd-
        I agree with you there, Slack is bad for open projects
      • I wish you could set a Discord server to be search engine indexable, that's a big thing that's missing from many chats
      • nox
        And it's "standard" because companies all want to put users in their very own walled garden, that we just accept that is very weird to me.
      • Nicd-
        a lot of knowledge is lost, especially on Slack where there's the message limit
      • sevenseacat
        I accept that if I'm using a product for the service it provides, in a lot of cases I can't provide my own product and expect the same service
