Is there a reason we can't leave the link to the chat up permanently, and instead of having a Fanlore Chat: OPEN vs. CLOSED, have it be MODERATED vs UNMODERATED or something? So then people will still know whether or not there's a mod available, but at the same time be able to chat with other editors if they want opinions or just to hang out or something? --Etothepii 16:02, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
- Seconded, with bells on. I've heard that a more permanent solution is in the works, and that's fine, but why not open up the chatroom as suggested above? I really want to be able to talk to the other people working on the wiki right now, and so far the chatroom has been open exactly once, in my timezone & while I was logged in (and I've been logged in a lot). This doesn't exactly make me feel included.--Mary Crawford 14:33, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
- Thirded. Talking to the other editors is something I'd like more of an opportunity to do, especially when I need input or want to go over an issue in real time. And the last few nights, it hasn't been open at all. --Seperis 16:23, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Bellaboo If there's still an interest in being able to talk to other Fanlore editors at all hours, perhaps for now we could open up another place to talk? We could use IRC chat until the Fanlore chat itself has been flexibilized.
