I’ve approached them for the free cloud standard service. It seems like they have the ability to import the existing organization from slack. I’ve also asked how this can be done. It might require assistants from the organization owner in Slack, any idea who that is / those are?
I think @seantalts ?
Sean is the owner yes. But I am not sure we need to bother with importing Slack history. If we had the entire Slack history it would be worth the trouble, but we dont, so I think we can just start fresh. We only need to create a few channels.
Allright, I’ll let everyone know when I’ve got more information
I’ve set-up a Zulip account and got confirmation that we will get the free upgrade. I’ll share the invite link widely when that upgrade has taken effect. In the meantime for anyone who already wants to explore, here is a link to join as member. For anyone who would like moderator or admin rights (@avehtari perhaps?), please send me a message. The link for that I’ll not share openly.
The upgrade has been activated, we now have the zulip cloud standard setup. I’ll take some time later to put up announcements on discourse and add zulip on the community part of the website as alternative for slack.
