Non-profit community asking for a user limit increase

Wow... this process is WAY harder than it used to be :-(

 

 

My question is simple, and probably not something that is appropriate for a forum, but I tried and could not find any other avenue. Not a good sign... not a good sign at all...

 

Well, to my question... I asked this in an ongoing e-mail I have been having with Flowdock support:

 

Hello again Flowdock family!
Our little mission to unite and bring a sense of camaraderie to the Indianapolis Hi-Tech community has reached another peak. We have reached our 150 user limit, and if it is possible would like to increase it again.
By comparison, there is another group trying to do a similar thing, but they use slack... though they have more raw users, we have two advantages. 1, we prune our users frequently... if it looks like a fake account, we delete it. 2, I belong to both, and ours is Significantly more active.
P.S. I know Slack is kind of taking over the world right now... but when it comes to the most effective communication platform for a software team, I still think Flowdock is an order of magnitude better... threads, the way you do the inbox, and just the tags and all fantastic.
Thanks,
--Andrew and the IndyHackers community
