Slack is a communication platform that is utilised for announcements, discussions and friendly random chatting with fellow HIA members. Slack is widely used by the majority of members in HIA.
What’s allowed and not allowed to be posted on slack?
Only post content that abides by the Code of Conduct. You are allowed to post safe-for-work images, youtube links, or lightshot captures; however, it has to be appropriate and decent at all times and cannot be of mature, explicit or offensive content. Keep in mind that many Habbo users are younger individuals, so all posts made must be age-appropriate.
Are there any rules in Slack?
Your behavior on Slack must follow the Code of Conduct, the Slack Fair Policy located in the HIA Bully Policy, Slack Safety Guide, and all other HIA policies at all times, however, here are some more specific rules for using Slack.
§1 - Any discussions or topics that are not related to Habbo or HIA may not be discussed in #general. Conversations regarding anything other than Habbo or HIA are to be discussed in #random, direct messages, and/or private channels that permit it.
§2 - New members to Slack must put their HIA rank in the “What I Do” portion of their profile. Usernames must also correlate with Habbo usernames.
§3 - Polls may be created in channels as long as they are appropriate to the channel (Only HIA related polls in #general for example). Polls may not be sent through direct messages unless approval from an iC a 1iC+ is given and it is an HIA related poll.
§4 - Social Media usernames, accounts, phone numbers, and other personal contact information are not to be placed anywhere on your Slack profile. If you wish for someone to have your contact information - give it to them privately, not on any public channels. Please refer to our Safety Guides for more information.
§5 - You may not use consecutive capital letters in #general or related private channels, but you are permitted to use them in #random and any other related private channels that permit you to do so,
§6 - “Shading” - or “calling someone out” - whether indirectly or directly in any public chat is not permitted. If you have a concern over someone or their behaviour, feel free to message them directly or message an elective.
§7 - Non HIA related links are not to be posted in public channels (you may however share them in DMs if you wish). YouTube Links may be posted in #random or #media-discussions chats. Pictures are to be uploaded directly from your device if being posted in a public channel, and Google Forms/Docs/etc/Typeforms are permitted as long as they cover HIA related topics. If you are sending screenshots of various pictures, it is best to use imgur or lightshot and DM them to someone rather than a public channel. If you are unsure whether the link you wish to share is permitted in a channel, please message an elective.
§8 - Leaking private information from a Slack channel/DM (special unit, elective, etc) is cause for punishment depending on the severity of the infraction. If the information is meant to be private, keep it that way.
§9 - Gory, horror, sexually suggestive, substance usage/abuse, and/or any media deemed inappropriate or explicit for HIA (including but not limited to pictures, videos, audio, and or text) - that otherwise may be offensive or inappropriate - are not allowed in the HIA Slack workspace. Failure to comply will result in deactivation of your Slack account along with other appropriate disciplinary consequences.
§10 - As stated above, all rules outlined in the Code of Conduct, Habbo Way, the Slack Fair Policy located in the HIA Bully Policy, Slack Safety Guide, and other HIA policies and guides are in full effect while chatting on Slack. If you have any serious questions or concerns DM a member of the Chief of Staff, the Chief of Directorates, or the Founder of HIA.
§11 - When a member has been promoted to a certain rank or added to a specific special unit, the member is required to stay in their respective channels due to it being utilised as a backbone for the rank/special unit. If a member has accidentally left the channel, the member is to be added back into the channel immediately, if a member refuses to stay in his/her respective rank or special unit channel, a verbal warning will be issued.
I have an announcement. Can I do it in #alerts?
You, yourself cannot. Only Slack admins can post messages in #alerts.

Only Workspace Owners may use the @channel command in #alerts, so if your message needs to utilize this command, please inform a Workspace Owner. (Directorate +).
