This site is the web facing frontend to a custom Slack bot integration, to index and make searchable, all messages sent on the SilverStripe Users Slack workspace.
You can search and look through the messages, to find answers to questions you may have that are not on the forums or old forums.
Almost instant, give or take a minute. The bot isn't always that fast.
That'll take about half an hour to an hour, depending on how busy the search engine is.
No. By joining, you agreed to the terms of service of both Slack and SilverStripe. We are not accountable for anything you say or do in any public channel.
Private channels are not indexed however, so anything you say in private, stays between you and Slack.
Sure thing! Fling a DM or ask one of our admins to fix this for you.
The bot does not discriminate. Therefore, deletions of messages are not propagated in to this archive. Edits are shown as edited though. If you really want your message removed, empty it instead of deleting it.
This is caused by the nature of the Slack API originally, and believed to be a better way of recording.
No. The archive, and the bot that runs in the background, are not owned by SilverStripe. The Slack channel, as well as the community forums, are entirely driven by the community and for the community.
No. Files and links are not indexed or searchable.
The archive has been moved to a new and improved server, which included a new search index on the archive's side. This caused the original index in big search engines to mismatch the actual index here. You can still search again for the same term to find the message you are looking for.
SilverStripe 4 (latest), CSP Headers, Solr, Python2, Chart.js and a little bit of custom code to make it all work. You can ask Firesphere for access to the code. It's public on BitBucket.
Files are synchronized on a daily basis and are not indexed in the search engine. Wait a day or two and you should be able to download if you are logged in.
We don't want unexpected file execution, thus all files that are considered harmful, are converted to txt files.
