A discussion popped up this morning about Slack and it's use in 18xx games. I wasn't sure if there was already a dedicated 18xx Slack team so I went ahead and made one. Here is an invite link if you're interested in joining.

Slack is a cross platform messaging app. I figured people could use it for general discussion and it'd be a great way for people to find and communicate with other players while playing 18xx online.

How can you join without being invited? It seems the registration process for Slack requires either an invitation or creating a new team. I'm sure they have their reasons but it seems as backasswards as using a Yahoo mailing list to me.

You are correct James, you do need to be invited. I've corrected my original post.

Openfire is just chat, like jabber. Slack is a bit more. Like discord, if you're familiar.
