My community is currently on Slack, but I’m very interested in migrating to a new platform. One of the apps I loved most in the Slack ecosystem is Donut, which we used to randomly match people in the community together to build relationships.
Once a month we would post, “Enter the #donut-pals channel to be randomly matched with another member!” People would then enter and Donut would do the rest. The brilliance was greater connection and trust across the community.
If we move to Discourse, I don’t see an easy way to recreate this type of random connections experience. Any ideas? or online team generators that can generate matches automatically and then email the people who’ve been matched together?
