**Slack guidelines for the membrane trafficking online community** -------------------------------------------------------------- General rules: ---------- For your profile, please use your full name and add a few words about yourself When commenting on a paper/post, please use a dedicated Thread instead of posting directly on the channel To start, how about heading over to the #greetings_and_introductions channel to say a little something about yourself? General Instructions on how to use the slack channels: Slack is a communication platform that offers chat-like rooms (channels) organized in a topical manner. By default, users are NOT automatically included in newly created channels, so please be sure to manually join the new channels that we will announce in the #general channel. Frequently asked questions: ---------- **How to join new channels?** No worries, it is actually quite simple! Next to “Channels” in your channel list on Slack, there should appear a large + sign. Click it, and then select “Browse channels”. There you can join any public channels that you are not yet a part of (such as newly created, dedicated seminar channels). When in doubt, use the Slackbot app by directly messaging “Slackbot” and asking it your questions. **How to get a sharable link to the slack community?** To get a sharable link, which you can do as follows: Click in the small arrow next to the Membrane trafficking title on top of the left panel. Click in “invite people to Membrane trafficking”. Click in “share invite link” and copy the link you get there, which now you can share. **Where is the link to the seminar?** A few days before the event we will post a link to register for the seminar in the channel dedicated to that seminar. After registration you will receive an email with a link to the event on the Cisco Webex platform. PLEASE USE YOUR INSTITUTIONAL ADDRESS AND YOUR FULL NAME. All suspicious unofficial email addresses will be removed.
