At the time I thought Spectrum was the way to go... but you guys had other opinions 😂
One of the main things that hit me was from what @gabe said:
I run on a community on Spectrum and I wouldn't recommend it. You don't actually get access your your user's email addresses, Spectrum does a poor job of alerting users when there is new content (even as an admin I don't get notifications), and I get the sense that the product is no longer being actively developed since their acquisition by Github. I'm planning on moving as soon as I figure out a better alternative (potentially Slack).
These are all "deal-breakers" as @alexhillman says.
So I decided to go with my second choice. Slack. You can join BuildFaster's channel here ⬅
So (again 😂) I want to ask you on your feedback.
This time I want to know more if I should stick with Slack, or move onto Discord. I want to find a permanent place for BuildFaster's community in the next few days so I want you to know that your advice is super helpful.
Thanks so much! You guys are the best 😄
