Related: Temporary chat for Gaming

This is a feature request for a chat site for gaming to be setup as soon as possible. The room on the meta site was extremely useful in reaching consensus, planning and executing moderation activities. I'm willing to use the feature in a unstable beta state for the value we got out of it.

Edit: Note there is already a temporary irc chat setup.

Edit: Chat is back in public beta! The gamin room can be found here (but you are advised to read the new FAQ first).

    At least for high rep users, this would be really useful. Those 3 days the chat was up, I felt we could "run" the site way better

    There's already a temporary chatroom set up on IRC.

    I thought badp suggested a place for chatting in meta.gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/551/… and I'm sure someone could set up a bot to put RSS updates :)

  • @Juan I was only in the gaming room for one day and I felt as though everything worked out far smoother. Commented Jul 21, 2010 at 13:36
  • @Oak, the problem with that is that there's no feed, which was very, very useful IMO. We need the official chat!

    Getting 20 rep on meta.stackoverflow.com is proving quite difficult, seeing as how I have no problems with or questions the stack engine...:<

  • Can anyone list the server/room information so I can join with my own IRC client rather than use a javascript one?

    @FallenAngelEyes: Pretty sure the public beta chats are not IRC.

In addition to the rooms that were active in the meta chat, you now have a dedicated chat server.

  • Hip hip hooray!
