[04:52] <stellar-slack> no smartiphones fault that slack auto-joins people you invite
[05:06] <stellar-slack> @dzham: for sure - I think it's a confusing feature in that way. General good practice is to not mass-invite people, but Slack is a really new platform, and it's understandable not to know how that feature works.
[09:33] <stellar-slack> @kwelstr: if you have something with me write me a pm
[09:34] <stellar-slack> sorry people for invited all of you. I was thinking that was better for all.
[09:34] <stellar-slack> Anyway who wants to join there is a new channel #marketplace for buying/selling/trade STR.
[09:34] <stellar-slack> Have a nice day everyone !!!
[16:19] <stellar-slack> Has there been any further developments on ways in which to receive free Stellars? Love to start using t
[16:19] <stellar-slack> Love to start using them.
[16:42] <stellar-slack> @smartiphone: no worries :simple_smile:
[17:01] <stellar-slack> For those folks who are new to slack, @eva and I made a little video to orient y'all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQW60H50XNQ&feature=youtu.be
[17:01] <stellar-slack> plus, advanced emoji skillz
[17:02] <stellar-slack> Very important :ewok:
[17:02] <stellar-slack> probably the most important emoji of all
[17:03] <stellar-slack> welcome @some1else
[17:13] <stellar-slack> @james: no new giveaways yet. Were you able to claim some free stellars with the Facebook giveaway?
[17:14] <stellar-slack> Also, a big welcome to @denis @davidareallen, @kane @mcdado @simondlr @rexjay78 @burzhuin @alexandre @brianhc @cpdis @tomprats and @johnkareoke
[17:34] <stellar-slack> Thanks Eva. We were offered free Stellars back last year, but unfortunately we were unable to claim them via our Facebook account. Stellar did say something about that they were working on rectifying that at the time, but haven't heard anything since. Just seeing if there were any updates. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
[17:36] <stellar-slack> @james: ah, sorry to hear that. Our spam algorithm is pretty conservative, so it sometimes catches real people. I reset your account, so you'll be able to claim free stellars next time you log in
[17:36] <stellar-slack> (PM me if you need a reminder of your username)
[17:36] <stellar-slack> @ivanico: hello and welcome :simple_smile:
[17:36] <stellar-slack> :wave:
[17:37] <stellar-slack> @ivanico: how're you? And how'd you find our Slack? :simple_smile:
[17:37] <stellar-slack> Pretty awesome actually... reading a bit through the thread now...
[17:37] <stellar-slack> glad to hear it
[17:38] <stellar-slack> :wink:
[17:43] <stellar-slack> Thank a million Eva. I'll keep you posted on how I get on. Have a nice evening.
[17:44] <stellar-slack> sure thing, and hope you have fun exploring. Feel free to come back here with questions :simple_smile:
[17:53] <stellar-slack> Hey everyone
[17:54] <stellar-slack> welcome @ddmirolli: what brings you here?
[18:06] <stellar-slack> Obsessed with FinTech
[18:06] <stellar-slack> @ddmirolli excellent, you're in good company
[18:06] <stellar-slack> Self taught programmer with an MS in finance and love learning about you guys
[18:07] <stellar-slack> Good idea
[18:07] <stellar-slack> nice!
[18:07] <stellar-slack> and thank you :simple_smile:
[18:07] <stellar-slack> Currently making my way through the WP
[18:07] <stellar-slack> I see you've joined the #dev channel - I hope you like it. It's a good place to get the details of what we're working on (and what others are building)
[18:07] <stellar-slack> :thumbsup::skin-tone-3:
[18:07] <stellar-slack> great! Just chime in if you have any questions :simple_smile:
[18:13] <stellar-slack> The video was nice. ! and happy be happy :simple_smile:
[18:13] <stellar-slack> i'm using slack for a long time with my team and it's good better than Hipchat or Fleep if anyone used in past.
[18:17] <stellar-slack> @eva Thanks. I came to look at ways to integrate Stellar into our commerce app for makers and designers. Will have a look around the docs and lurk in #dev for a while.
[18:18] <stellar-slack> @some1else: welcome--let us know if you have questions
[18:22] <stellar-slack> @some1else: sure thing, and http://fatsell.com|fatsell.com looks like an awesome concept
[18:23] <stellar-slack> please do chime in if you have questions, or if you're looking for good starter docs
[18:42] <stellar-slack> @eva, @vanessa: Thanks :blush:. It's very early stage. Fatsell was just the beginning of an exploration in how young makers can bring ideas to life, how they can find and communicate with a genuine audience of peers, supporters and customers. And of course how to deal with all the trouble associated with trying to achieve self-fulfillment through creative enterprisey endeavours which involve selling things onl
[18:42] <stellar-slack> to move the focus from marketing tools into creating a network of relationships which will support financial and physical transactions.
[18:42] <stellar-slack> amazing @some1else
[18:43] <stellar-slack> @some1else wow, that sounds very much in line with Stellar's ethos, and I'm excited to see what you'll be able to use Stellar for in that context.
[18:43] <stellar-slack> We find that all our makers have relationships with their customers through social media, and we think those relationships shouldn't be stuck in there
[18:43] <stellar-slack> Welcome, charmonium :simple_smile:
[18:43] <stellar-slack> @some1else: absolutely
[18:44] <stellar-slack> are you planning on building some kind of community platform?
[18:44] <stellar-slack> Right now we're focusing on the makers
[18:44] <stellar-slack> Instead of merely giving them a Stripe e-commerce platform, we're going to enable seamless communication with backers
[18:45] <stellar-slack> interesting. Direct relationships instead of a third party?
[18:45] <stellar-slack> It's not much different than what Twitter and Facebook are doing. We just think we can keep it more ethical
[18:46] <stellar-slack> sure
[18:46] <stellar-slack> Right now we're looking into making the ecommerce part entirely open-source
[18:46] <stellar-slack> would absolutely love to hear your thoughts on how to best make that happen - I think it's very important, but often overlooked
[18:46] <stellar-slack> oooh yes!
[18:46] <stellar-slack> That will give all our customers git access
[18:46] <stellar-slack> *nods*
[18:49] <stellar-slack> I'll go read the docs now and drop a few lines later on when I have more insight.
[18:49] <stellar-slack> checking out the case study you have up right now - pretty gorgeous (http://zenegg.si/ for the curious)
[18:49] <stellar-slack> sounds good!
[19:43] <stellar-slack> Hi there
[19:45] <stellar-slack> how do you do if you’re not a facebook active user and want to earn some stellar to start experiencing the platform ?
[19:52] <stellar-slack> Hi Denis!
[19:52] <stellar-slack> Let me send you an invite
[20:43] <stellar-slack> welcome @sungwon @denis and @wownaman
[20:43] <stellar-slack> cheers!
[20:49] <stellar-slack> @sungwon oooh looking at http://playseeds.com|playseeds.com now - looks like a very cool concept
[20:53] <stellar-slack> thanks, eva! we haven’t planned out the money transfer portion of our product much yet, but I was thinking we might be able to use stellar to make int’l transfers to microloan organizations and someday directly to microlendees.
[20:53] <stellar-slack> absolutely - it seems like a really good fit in terms of handling microtransactions, in any currency, and quickly
[20:53] <stellar-slack> have you guys checked out any of our integration docs/guidelines?
[20:53] <stellar-slack> happy to point you in the right direction :simple_smile:
[20:54] <stellar-slack> we haven’t looked through the docs in depth yet. that’d be great if you could point us to docs you think might be most helpful
[20:54] <stellar-slack> @eva working on a new integration guide for Stellar now - should have a first draft by the end of the day that @sungwon you'd be interested in reading.
[20:58] <stellar-slack> awesome, @andrew, looking fwd to it
[20:58] <stellar-slack> oh perfect timing Andrew :simple_smile:
[23:07] <stellar-slack> welcome @chrisdahl :simple_smile:
[23:10] <stellar-slack> and welcome @justpete
[23:24] <stellar-slack> Hey all, we're going to have our first 24 hour "community chat" this Wednesday in the #resources channel. It will be a loosely-guided discussion about income volatility in the United States, but broader chat about financial inclusion for folks with low income/inconsistent paychecks is welcome.
