As discussed in this previous thread, the moderation team is investigating Zulip as an alternative to Slack for the Elm community. If you’ve used Zulip, especially in a larger team, we’d like to hear about your experience. The most helpful things would look like this:
- I tried Zulip in such-and-such a context, and found these things helpful but these unhelpful.
- I have participated in an open source project that uses Zulip, and this is how it helped or hindered discussion around the project.
I’m especially interested in ways you’ve noticed conversations flow—is “topics for everything” a big barrier to entry to discussion? Do you feel OK jumping into conversation? Have you felt pressure to respond, or been able to get help in the ways you needed when you’ve used Zulip?
I’ve already talked to several Recursers and it seems nice! But more feedback would still be helpful, especially from folks at RC.
side note: the mod team and community have previously have discussed several other alternatives to Slack, like Discord or IRC. We may still consider those later, depending on how this turns out, but I’d like to keep our conversation focused on Zulip in particular for now.
