Earlier this year, our community transitioned from using IRC and Google Hangouts to Slack for guild coordination and our everyday conversations. We really love the Slack experience, which has proven to be a vastly better user experience for our members. Aside from the web-based chat, Slack also offers an array of great desktop and mobile apps for all your devices.
