    Hi,

    If you're a Slack user, we have a new Slack community dedicated to Unity developers. It's a small group of us at the moment, but with a wide range of experience.

    UPDATE: Use this new URL which auto-approves your email
    https://unitydevs.signup.team/

    Apply here:

    Best regards,
    Shaun

    There is a #unity channel in the gamedevelopment.slack.com group, but it's not very active. Maybe it'll be better to have a specialized group altogether.

    We use internally, but it is domain locked. I honestly hadn't even heard about it 6 months ago. Now I prefer over just about anything else I have used.

    How do they make money?

    I'm incredibly suspicious of anyone offering me a great looking, obviously valuable service and not asking for money from me. It makes me wonder if I can trust them with my information.

    Edit: Ok, I eventually found a pricing page. Neat.

    Here I was thinking it was another hate thread about the Unity devs working slowly. Whoops.

    I guess I go sign up and give it a go.

    Applied.

    Soon all the cool kids will be there. ;)

    Er... since we're not a team I'm not sure what it'll actually do for us. I'm mostly just curious to see what it's like.

    There's a bunch of us in the group that have been working with Unity for a few years and are shipping commercial products. We thought it might be useful to chat to fellow developers about hard problems, share our progress, or help each other with domain specific problems.

    I have a development team. However the various voices inside my head already talk to each other too much. I'm not overly keen to give them more rcfective communication tools.

    Same! It's sort of "next-gen" IRC to me

    Wondering this, too. I applied anyway using my work email address to try and find out. I've only ever used Slack at work, so I've never seen it in a non-domain-locked environment, really.

    This is excellent! As slack slowly replaces IRC in my life I've been looking for a unity org!

    So I applied months ago, got accepted and such. How do I get back in now? The only link is to apply again.

    Is there a way to change how the org name appears? This slack appears as unity and our company one appears as Unity, so it's confusion city....for the 1% of staff on there at least :p

    Is the auto-approval system offline right now? For the past couple of days I've been trying to have it send my Gmail account an invitation but I have received anything (I've checked both the spam and trash folders too).

    They want you to spend your life typing email, password, first name, second name, nickname etc over and over and over again. I honestly don't event know how the service with such poor logic process even managed to survive in 2016. S***ty app.
