    It would be nice with discord or slack, a bit more modern but still the same thing :)

    Edit: Slack would be really awesome in my opinion! :)

    And if anyone does not know what Slack is:

    I didn't have the chance to chat there, but it looks that it used to be hilarious.
    +1 for setting it up again.

    Should we create a poll in forum suggestions section ?

    Any update on this?

    Yeah, I'm all for a Slack group. There are some interesting Slack communities in the tech space already but it would definitely be nice to have one BHW.

    I think Discord would be ideal for this kind of groups too! It's anonymous, user friendly and kinda cool tbh

    Now a days, slack seems to be a lot more popular! I suggest slack over irc.

    I am guessing maybe its not on the cards because its counter-productive to the forum - ie it will be driving traffic away rather than to the forum.
