Welcome to the Pillar Community!

We are excited to invite you to join our channel, get involved in and contribute to the Pillar Project vision. This community channel is where all that activity will be taking place, transparently, voluntarily and efficiently. Our Community is  powered by Mattermost, an open-source browser-based tool that can scale to support our community.

Signing Up For MatterMost

  1. Go to community.pillarproject.io and, if it is your first time in MatterMost, click on “Create new account.”
  2.  Enter your email, username and password. Please register using your first.last name. Please don’t use a fantasy or nickname. We expect more than 1,000 people, so it will be far better if each person uses first.last name to register. If your name is Rick Smith, please register as rick.smith. If for some reason that’s taken, please use a middle initial, like Rick.H.Smith. A few of us on Pillar staff have first name for easy recognizability
  3. Click “Create Account,” which will take you to this screen:
  4.  Once you sign up, go to your email inbox and find the confirmation email (it might be in your SPAM folder) and confirm your membership. If you have trouble signing up, please check your spam folder. If you think the confirmation is lost, click “Resend Email” on the previous screen. If that doesn’t work, try again with another email address. We can’t really help past that.


Choose your Team & Add Channels

  1. Once you have confirmed your email account, you will be asked to log in using the credentials you just created. Once you enter the correct login credentials, you will be taken to the following screen. Please select the only available team to join, “Pillar Project.”

After joining this team, you will enter the MatterMost Pillar Community, and automatically be added to the following teams:

  • Contests
  • Partners
  • Pillar Project
  • Research
  • Volunteers

Teams can be seen on the far left-hand side of the screen. The team you are currently in is highlighted by a white square.

Each team is comprised of various channels. Some channels you are automatically added to, others you have to manually add.
