Non-team specific Channels

While SSI consists of 6 distinct teams, a large number of channels are general to all SSI members. These channels are great for cross-ssi discussions.

General Channels

  • #general - typically for general SSI-wide announcements
  • #random - for things you want to share with SSI that doesn’t belong in any other channels
  • #dankmemes - pretty self explanatory. Try typing "/dank" in the channel.
