    Dear all, for the past year, a Whatsapp group of Tesla owners has existed to complement these forums. It has been a popular, more casual place to chat. It won't replace these forums as the go to place for Tesla information, but it seems that people like it.

    We are now close to the 100 person limit, so I have initiated a move to a program called Slack, where we will continue our shennanigans.

    If you wish to join us, please direct message me your email address so I can invite you.

    Thanks!
    Tim

    The ads on Whatsapp made it unusable for me.
    I have yet to try Slack.

    There are no ads on WhatsApp, but the group limit is now 256.

    We've already migrated to Slack, which is excellent and offers quite a few other benefits from What's App, like channels, emoji reactions, impromptu polls, IPad and web apps not dependent on the mobile phone.

    Which reminds me, I've downloded Slack but am still using Whatsapp as of today. What is necessary to attach to the new Slack group?

    Welcome to the forum Markl.
    As a new member the spam filter is set to high and any internet or email addresses are likely to cause your post to become moderated.
    As your post count increases, the spam filter fades and you are able to do more without moderation.
    In any case posting you email address on a public forum is not a good idea unless you enjoy receiving spam yourself.
    If you want in to the new Slack group start a conversation with forum member Timpoo.

    It looks like the new forum software doesn't allow members with a low message count to send links or email addresses through the conversation feature. There is good reason for this and I doubt USA administrators would be willing to change it, however you can report your own message and I will forward it to the relevant senior admins for consideration.

    I'm having the same issue when trying to send a PM :(

    getting an error that says...
