Pieter Levels started sharing the tasks he's done daily on a Telegram group called "WIP": https://twitter.com/levelsio/status/919118813760770048

The objective of that group seems similar to our community's: motivate each other to keep shipping.

Yeah, super active group. It was started by Marc Köhlbrugge, the founder of Betalist. Peter joined just recently (few weeks ago)

Have heard of it and it sounds great, I'd love to join once I actually have things to ship, haha.

Just found out about it yesterday - it looks like a great accountability group. Sent a request in for an invite, hopefully soon

Yikes that flow is bad, I went and clicked login to see if any social login options and it instead took me to this page because I don't have Telegram but how does anyone know thats what they need when it does not tell you?

Oh and register wont work also and it shows a iframe with no content... I think they have a few issues. Sounds like a good project though.

Yeah i think it's a quick and dirty MVP. But I like the idea of encouraging to ship everyday.

Did you let its creator know about the issue?

@d you can join even if you don't ship, it's a simple Telegram group.

The whole point of WIP.chat is that they make you ship. Good peer pressure, I've seen multiple people go from postpone mode to shipping one thing after another.

Looks like they have recently upgraded it from base MVP to a bit more advanced since I last looked - $10/month to join

I'm not willing to pay $10 / month just to even join any community.

This is really cool! However I'm not feeling great about having to pay for it outright. I'd prefer to have a free trial for a bit and opt in to support them if I get use out of it.

You can get invited. And invited people have a 14 day ? trial, as far as I remember.

Yeah I am not 100% sure if the feature already landed or is still work in progress :D

However I think marc offers refunds too. If you're not happy with WIP

Oh btw. you *can* use it for free.

You can track your todos and you can join the group chat. However the group chat is read-only for you then.

With the paid account you get write access and stats about your productivity

Tried that but unfortunately: 🚫 You need to join WIP before you can use this command. Sign up at https://wip.chat or click the link in the confirmation email if you already signed up.

Hello, I tried WIP.chat but was put off by the endless stream of meme gifs - it felt like a group of children.

I should mention it was pretty early on and I was not able to post. But I don’t think my perspective would have changed even with full access.
