What is Slack?
Slack is a platform for team communication: everything in one place, instantly searchable, available wherever you go. EVE University has been using Slack for a while within each of the campuses, communities and other teams.
The various E-Uni Campuses have channels set up in their respective slack applications for different purposes. One feature in slack is that it allows pings for various purposes, which will be received by all members of that team. Slack also has a mobile app which is quite versatile.
All UNI Slacks follow University Rules
Joining Slack and Channels
Each campus and community has a certain way of joining their Slack. Once you join a campus, you will need to visit their forum posts for details on how to join it. Certain teams may also create private groups for their management teams, FC teams, etc.
If you have any issues joining their slack, look on those posts for whom to contact.
Common UNI Wide Channels
- #campusbatphone : This is a campuswide ping in case of a major emergency. Please use this ping sparingly, as it will ping every member of every campus-associated slack as well as the staff slack. This channel should only be used if the campus can't handle the threat by itself. I.e. if WHC is getting invaded, NSC is getting dropped and station camped by a nasty gang or if the LSC can't undock for whatever reason. It should not be used for general purposes like announcing fleets or announcing classes. DO NOT RESPOND TO A PING IN THIS CHANNEL. Discuss it in your campus channels.
- #general : General team channel used to discuss topics generally related to that team/campus
- #othergames : Chat, discuss, or play other games via this channel
- #otherchat : Discuss, share anything not directly related to the UNI or EVE Online
- #scripts : Testing of scripts ad using miscellaneous scripts included by Titus (latex, market prices, routes etc) go here.
- #pingpve : Pings for PvE activities (missions, mining, etc), arranged or impromptu, go here. Do NOT respond/chatter in this channel.
- #pingpvp : Pings for PvP activities, arranged or impromptu, go here. Do NOT respond/chatter in this channel.
- #pingmisc : Miscellaneous pings - like "come kill Pehuen", "rolling Bacon, need HIC", "need to scan down chains" etc go here. Do NOT respond/chatter in this channel.
- #pingfleet : Announce pre-planned fleets, ie Ishtar Fleet next week. Do NOT respond/chatter in this channel.
- #talkaboutpings : Discuss any ping from the ping channels here
Pings should be informative enough so that they do not require multiple pings for the same topic. If you need to use multiple lines, type them out before you send the message. Each message sent will notify individuals on their mobile, desktop, and/or emails; do not abuse the pings otherwise individuals will just turn them off.
Please be respectful, decent and all the rest of those things in slack.. and NEVER reveal any personal info.
