As you all have noticed, the activity of our community has reached an all-time low for various reasons. Nevertheless I feel there is still great willingness among members and friends of the Belgium Fraggers to play Enemy Territory occasionaly
during this Fall / Winter.
As you all know I have tried to setup an Whatsapp group
to improve communication and coordination to encourage server activity with Xfire being gone and Evolve not being used intensively. However, due to privacy reasons, only very few people joined our Whatsapp group and therefore this great initiative failed to meet its objective.
Notwithstanding the fact that the Whatsapp group was not much of an success, I am convinced that an instant messaging app similar to Whatsapp (i.e. accessible via smartphone or desktop) is definitely the way how can improve communication between members and friends so that we can setup occasional events, discuss server improvements, etc.
Coincidental I noticed an article in a newspaper about Slack
, allegedly "the team communication platform for the 21st century". Slack is a cloud-based messaging and team collaboration application and allows users to communicate with others through dedicated channels, and customize usability through 3th party applications. Meanwhile, I have downloaded the application on my smartphone and tested some features like the public channel and I feel convinced that this app may provide a better alternative compared to Whatsapp and overcome the privacy issues that worried alot of people.
That being said, please start downloading Slack
and contact me for your private invitation
to join our channel so that we can setup an event on the server very soon and more importantly start planning our 8th anniversary event
United we stand, together we fall.
