What warranted this 24 hour chat ban?

Scanning the question I'm responding to, I'd say "calling someone a dick" warranted the suspension. Scanning the transcript, I'd say "arguing about politics in chat" warranted the timeout. I wouldn'...

Should the SE chatroom be phased out for an official Arqade Discord?

No. Stack Exchange already has some concerns around the Discord channel as it is, and so they would not support us making an official migration to an off-site chat. Additionally, not everyone has ...

This Is Fine is fine

I think it should remain a "News and Politics" chat room, but we should probably define what that actually means a little bit better. The politics part I think is fairly self evident, but I don't ...

Should we switch Lazers to only post Hot Network Questions in The Bridge?

Lazers should continue to only post Hot Network Questions (HNQ). As much as I'll miss Lazers having such a large presence in The Bridge, I'd rather it didn't drown out actual human users (sorry ...

This Is Fine is fine

My opinion has always been that the general/default room should be primarily related to the topic of the host site. Many sites can get away with an overlapping topic in rooms simply because those ...

A proposed change to the This is Fine news policy

I don't like this proposal. I agree that what happened yesterday was an issue, but not for the reasons you outline. The messages that were moved were not news related. Why a store page for a fidget ...

Google phrase to get to 'The Bridge'

I find that googling for "@wipqozn's socks" is a reliable way to get to The Bridge's transcript. From there you're just one click away from active chat!

Are we interested in getting spam reports to our chatroom?

I personally see no need for the chatbot. I have no idea when the spam posts you located were posted, but I would guess that the ones that took 15 minutes to get rid of were posted at night when most ...

I agree that timeliness is an important factor when dealing with... pretty much anything on the site. Not just cleaning spam, but also commenting, answering, closing, voting. This is why we have ...

Can I just create a chat room like that?

Yes. You are absolutely allowed to make it, I don't know how popular it will be, but you can surely create the chatroom and give it a try, worst case it's no success and the room freezes.

Room frozen: what is the procedure to unfreeze it again

There is no procedure for unfreezing a room. If you have a room you'd like unfrozen, I'd suggest just flagging the "This room has been frozen" message with a moderator flag asking for it to ...

Create a chat room for the posts that don't fit the Q & A guidelines

No. We don't create sites for the things SE doesn't take. That's essentially a dump site, and doomed to fail. Nobody will stick around there, and it just leads to a completely dead site.
