I've created a channel in Slack; the goal is for it just be a repository of links, without a lot of discussion.

Is there a way to have a channel not auto generate all of the minute alerts, about every little thing that happens? (see pic). Slack channel clutter

I want to keep this channel as decluttered as I can.

I don't think it is possible to hide all the messages there. You can turn join and leave message off though.

Slack documentation on how to turn off join and leave messages

  1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.

  2. Select Settings & administration, then click Workspace settings.

  3. Scroll down to the Join & leave messages section and click Expand.

  4. Tick or untick the box next to Show a message when people join or leave channels.

  5. Click Save.
