We have created a new Slack channel for volunteer communications. Slack is
a messaging app where we can talk, share files, and work together. You can
use it on a computer or mobile.
We want to use the best communication tools to support each other with more
ease. Everything that you share in Slack is automatically indexed, creating
a searchable archive of all our communications.
We hope experienced Wikimedians in our community will find this space
useful to support newcomers and answer their questions. We believe this can
be a great opportunity for us to grow and reinforce our community.
