New Chat Link

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

We found an alternative for Chat and we are still looking at trying to integrate it with LU but until then the room is open and the following is the link to sign in for now.

https://join.slack.com/livingunbound/shared_invite/MTc2ODIxOTgwMDMyLTE0OTM3MzYyODgtN2QyNTQxODk4ZQ

This version of chat, has a phone app, desktop client or you can use the web interface.

See you in chat :)

Hi All,

Just FYI, we now have a new tab on the top menu bar that says "Living Unbound Slack Channel (Chat)" for easy access. Only forum members can see it (i.e. you have to be signed in to the LU Forum, to see that link).

It seems to work great (if you're not signed in to Slack, it takes you to the sign in page - if you're already signed in, it takes you to the main chat room).

Thanks,

Doug

Thank you!

I will likely upgrade to Slack Plus this afternoon so that we have control over content retention. I see no reason for conversations to remain in the public channels.

Would it be possible to use the LU logo as the channel avatar?

Hi All,

Jeff - you're most welcome! :)

Karen - That sounds great - and thanks for doing that upgrade. I agree that "control over content retention" makes sense (more privacy = good, as I think essentially all of us agree). And yes - please feel free to use the LU logo as the channel avatar.

And thanks again to everyone - Tom, too - and whoever else who may have contributed to the "emergency" finding and setting up of a new chat solution, i.e. Shady, who apparently suggested Slack as an option -  and including the details such as content retention, etc., that Tom and Karen have been managing. 

I really appreciate others taking the lead here - a key reason being: neither Shweta or I participate in chat all that much, and so, I'm happy to see those who do  use it managing the details. It's smoother that way, all around - and it creates a better chat experience for those who use chat a lot (those of you who really make use of it know what features, considerations, etc. are important).

Great team / community effort all around! :)

Thanks,

Doug

I'll share the research I did for another site:

 

Babble: https://invisionpowe...real-time-chat/

This is in the IPS marketplace but for $100/$45yr you get multiple chatrooms (based on pictures).

 

Cbox:  https://www.cbox.ws/

Priced at $1.72m/$7.92m .    Latter has 100 channels (rooms?). 

 

BowoB:  http://www.bowob.com/pricing

Priced at $10m.

 

AVChat

http://avchat.net/integrations/ipboard

Seems overkill.

 

ArrowChat

https://www.arrowchat.com/ipb-chat/

 

Commetchat:   https://www.cometchat.com/  or  https://www.cometchat.com/ipb-chat

Looks like you can create chatrooms and assign a name.    Priced at $129/$249/$499 one-time cost.   Starting at Middle cost supports mobile devices.

Thanks David!!!

Appreciate all your effort in putting this list together and  sharing it with us.

Excellent thing to keep in mind if Slack does not work out.

Hi All,

And Yes - Thanks, David - lots of excellent detail, there! :)

By way of comparison, Slack looks like its least expensive option is $8/mo., per user (based on a quick review).

Thanks again, everyone!

Hi Lari,

Click on the Living unbound Chat tab above and it should link you to the slack account.  If that does not work, feel free to send me a pm with your email information and I will have an invite sent.

Regards, Jeff
