Channel etiquette

  • #announcements is a mandatory channel.  All members of the workspace belong to it.  Only Slack administrators can post to it. It’s very low traffic.
  • #random is a default channel.  It is for general chit-chat, socializing.  It can get noisy, you do not need to stay in this channel if you don’t want to.
  • #div_general is a general channel for each division (ALCF, MCS, EVS, DSL, CPS, CELS).  Some of these are invite-only.

For any channel, pay attention to the topic and description.  Some of them allow for frivolous chatter, some want to be strictly by the books relevant topics only.

If a channel you’re interested in doesn’t exist, create it!
