500 seems a bit on the high side for realtime chat. Is there some kind of channel structure you already use?
At that scale I'd like to see more chat and something else. Maybe a 'meta' discourse channel.

500 is indeed quite high. 😅 Granted there are folks who communicate here often and those that have somewhat disappeared over time. They're still in the channel, but just not very active.

There is a channel structure in place as well that splits us into 4 separate teams. There is also one other channel that is specific to a certain ability some mods have called tag moderation.

I'm open to experimentation here though. Even 125 folks per channel seems quite high and there's no great plan for new folks.
