Why aren't we using Eclipse mattermost for chat?

Hello, some discussion was there https://github.com/theia-ide/theia/pull/3830

I do not complain a lot about chat software often but this one is awkward

[Dave Neary]

I like that we have threads, history, a good search integrated, and email notifications. The awkward thing is having Yet Another Forum or Chat Tab open

[Gorkem Ercan]

It looks like mail without the benefits of mail.

How can one get those cute Team near their name on this thing?

[Gorkem Ercan]

I do not see them on Red Hatters

The team batch has to be manually set. It is set for Eclipse Theia committers. Just went through it again and updated accordingly.

Ah

[Gorkem Ercan]

OK thanks

Is there a “unread” functionality in spectrum? And can I turn threading off?
