@freitasm some Slack accounts may be under different logins (eg, with mine it is me@domain.nz instead of me@domain.co.nz) so could be worth making it a field you can edit but this is totally up to you. It could encourage some members to ensure their email addresses are up-to-date ;)

Ok, here's what I am doing: the field comes pre-populated but you can change the email before hitting send. Only registered users have access to the self-invite page. There's a reCaptcha to prevent robots (yes, even logged in users could put a robot there to DDoS).

 

Please help test here: Geekzone Slack channel self-invite page and post feedback so I can tweak it.

freitasm:

 

Ok, code is done but I have a question before I release it.

 

I am coding so that only Geekzone users access the page. I am filling the email with Geekzone email address. Should I make this field read-only or people would like to be able to use other addresses?

 

 

I'd prefer my email addresses to be kept private if possible.

Hi folks. Earlier today our Slack team hit a soft limit - we reached the max number of invitations available. I contacted Slack and soon after they lifted the limit. If you have requested an invite but did not receive an email then please try again.

I suppose it is too late to recommend the better-in-every-way open source alternative? https://www.mattermost.org/
