A few of us have brought up the possibility of having an official Cookie Brigade Slack or Discord channel before. I wanted to see what your thoughts were, and if there was a general preference.
I’m only involved in East right now so I’m unsure if other PAXes use GroupMe like we do. Though GroupMe serves a good purpose (to connect the East brigadiers), Discord or Slack would allow us to set up different subgroups / channels for each PAX and other CB events. I think it’s important to be able to share information across the Brigade, no matter what PAX(es) you’re attending.
For South and East, we had pre-PAX planning meetings on Discord, and they seemed to go well. I also like how Discord has specific voice channels - so we can better collaborate and have group meetings every so often.
At work, I use Slack all the time, so I’m indifferent to either. Both applications are accessible via web, computer app, and mobile app (really important for on-the-go communication as we’re distributing!).
Overall, just trying to increase communication across the Brigade and connect more people.
Please let us know your thoughts here.
