@rrhoover Haha i like how quickly teams identify a need for such feature :) I'll add it to the list and report back when done ;)

@matijaabicic on second thought, this might ruin all the fun. 😁

@rrhoover Happy to report that this is now done. You can be Mr. Squeaky-clean Guy with --public --sfw, and keep it fun with --public --nsfw for all the private group action. Defaults: --private and --nsfw. Of course :) Check "/urban ?" for details

@zacdavies use --public switch. And watch your OS X autocorrect that "--" to "-" 😄 I plan to address that soon...

@matijaabicic Thanks for the tips. I'd love a setting for public responses by default.

@zacdavies this is now addressed. both -- and — now do the same thing :)

I think there is an issue with using '--public' as on a Mac the double hyphen is automatically switched to a single dash character (—) so it doesn't recognise the command

@marty you're right, I noticed this early on (developing on a Mac ). My rationale was that urban slacks, due to their content, should be public if and only if a user really, REALLY, really wants to push them into an in Chanel response, that it should be very hard to accidentally post a public UrbanSlack 😱. I am, however, rethinking that now.Even though there is a OS X setting that will stop that autocorrect as a couple of you point out - let's be real, who's going to bother fiddling with OS X settings for this. I'm thinking of changing the switch pattern to a single dash or a hyphen or...something else entirely. Or even adding additional set of switches for every command...all suggestions are welcome, of course 😄

@matijaabicic how about a setting that allows people to decide if they want it to be public or private by default? :) Great work though dude, I'll be using this a lot!

@marty Yep, good idea. I am also considering having a team-level setting, where team owner set team defaults or even enforce certain settings for everyone.

@marty This is now addressed. '--public' and '—public' now do the same thing.

This is awesome. I use Urban Dictionary pretty much every day and I find this integration specially useful for non-native speakers like myself. Thanks @matijaabicic!
