#4747 new enhancement

Feature Request: Expose/promote subchannels using /here by reposting to #core

Reported by: garrett-eclipse Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Slack & IRC Keywords: 2nd-opinion



Just an idea, not sure if possible or if there's much merit.

Was thinking as many Slack users aren't aware of all the channels it would be nice to give them a little exposure especially when they have meetings and bug scrubs by posting a snippet of their /here call to #core for example. Or #meta, etc for other channel types.

So a bug scrub starting in #core-privacy would put a little note/link on #core to let others know about it happening.

I feel especially for the smaller or newer components like Site Health, etc this could ellicit more participants.

Thank you

This seems like a good idea to me, and I can see it working well for #meta.

I would assume that it would drop the @here part for the 'parent' channel and just have the text, or even just have it quote the message from the other channel using Slacks message embed functionality.

If there's any form of buy-in from the #core team then lets make this happen. I primarily want to make sure that adding this doesn't cause noise that is unwanted in the channels.

Marking this as 2nd-opinion only to gather extra feedback.
