#3898 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Create a nice /support Slack command to inform users Slack is for development

I've seen alot of users ask support questions in #core and other places and found contributors regurgitating the same information over and over.

This can become a nuisance and sometimes comes off as an 'in-your-face' way of directing users to the correct support channels.

It would be nice to have a preset message template with support information/links that could be triggered with a Slack command like /announce.

Something like /support @username would create a message such as;

Hello @username,

This Slack channel is for WordPress core development. For support and general chatting please visit our support forums and IRC.

IRC Channel -

Good luck and have fun coding.

This would simplify the contributor response and remove any potential for being confrontational.

Not sure if it's possible but thought it would be helpful.
