I enabled the chat plugin but I can’t set up the integration because I am not an admin on the Gitter room. I suspect either @r.w.bowman or @j.stirling are? Can one of you do it? Here are the instructions:
Done. I have it for first post and all replies for the Announcements, General, Request help, and Contributions topics. I don’t think site feedback needs to get through to Gitter. I like that gitter puts integration traffic in its own pane. Much nicer than some platforms (like slack) where the integration stuff just floods the chat window.
Ah, easier to miss that way though. I normally keep that sidebar collapsed.
True, It is a trade off, do you remember when Joel put the GitHub integration into the LabThings Riot and it sent 50 messages a day that came through as full fledged messages?
Someone has enabled google calendars on a Slack I am in and it sends me provate messaged that trigger full notifications to tell me that my Google calendar is empty every day, because I don’t use google calendar. I can’t block the bot, and it seems to be on for all or off for all.
Striking a balance between being visible and not being annoying is hard. Slack seems to have solved this by not caring about being annoying.
I added you as an admin as it’s useful anyway - though I guess this is now done…
