 Slack, Mattermost, Gitter and other chat platforms

The Fluid community has considered migrating to newer chat platforms but every time the general opinion has been that they are not as accessible as IRC or only offer features we depend on (e.g. public records) for paid users. A consensus on this topic has never been reached.
