I'm member of a slack org that has a similar rule that's very strongly enforced. Up to the point where first and last name of a person who does that most often is used as a verb (I FN LN'ed him == I told him to move the conversation to a proper channel). There's no other place I feel so strongly discouraged to participate in any discussion (and I'm an out-spoken WHAM that usually don't care about social conventions). I'd really hate to see yt slack to turn into such place. Cheers, Kacper
OK, thank you for the feedback.
Can you suggest an alternative? Is it rude of me to start a thread when someone asks a help question in #general?
You're a long way from doing that in manner I described above, but consider the following scenario:
You're a shy person that doesn't participate in our slack very often. You gather up the courage and ask a question on the first channel that pops up after you log in (which by slack's design is #general). I show up and tell you that you should ask that somewhere else. Now, not only I didn't help you to solve your problem, but additionally I made you feel bad for asking a question in a "wrong place"...
I don't know any better solution. However, I don't feel bad about current status quo. I personally don't think that #general is *that* noisy. I think these days everybody is subscribed to so many slacks that they mute each of them by default. I have no data to back my claims though :)
