I'm still in the process of building out our community but I've got some small things in the pipeline.
I've added a channel called #intros. Please take a moment to say something about yourself. It can be as much or as little as you want to say, but please say something. We're building a community and we should "go around the room" and introduce ourselves. I've posted the first intro moments ago!
I've also created the #test-bots channel. This is our community. So I'm leaving the power to create bots in everyone's hands. This is a great learning opportunity to write some bots in Ruby, learn the Slack api, and write some code that could be useful for our little tribe. This post is for Python but it could be easily translated to Ruby: https://medium.com/@julianmartinez/how-to-write-a-slack-bot-end-to-end-d6a8542c854b#.nc1larhfk
Starting next year I'm going to create a #daily-challenge channel. I'm not sure yet if these are going to be Rails specific. I'm thinking to make them Ruby questions. If anyone has suggestions on this I'd love to hear it.
Right now we have no community guidelines or code of conduct. There are no problems we have right now that I know of, but as we grow I would like to have something in place. I'm going to be adding information to our sub sidebar about Reddit's existing reddiquette. As the tribe grows we'll be assessing our guidelines to see what changes, if any, are needed. I'm looking around at other subs to see what rules they have beyond reddiquette. Again, if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to contact the mods.
Thank you everyone for making this sub a great place!
