We have our very own chat room which everybody should visit from time to time.
We can change many aspects of it, such as title, description and feeds that are pulled and posted.
What do you think should be changed?
Can we get a distinct favicon from the other cs.SE pages? It doesn't seem to be the usual choice, SO and math.SE have the same favicon in chat. But still, can we?
Related to my answer, but unrelated to the question: can we get to choose a good logo/favicon? I am quite jealous of math.SE's. Will it be possible only once out of public beta?
hi R am all in favor of encouraging a thriving chat area. feel its significant potential is currently unfortunately underutilized here (same story on TCS.se). it would be extremely cool if some high voted questions gained extended chat dialogue and even collaborative attacks similar to the model of the polymath project.
however, propose a separate chat room other than the main default for the question feeds in contrast to current fmt. as it stands it is impossible to have a train of dialog in the chat room with the interspersed question feed & think it discourages extended dialogue.
am thinking of regularly posting interesting CS links to chat which I run across frequently.
another idea is a "town hall" mtg that is announced/scheduled at a particular time that led to a very lively TCS.se dialogue a long time ago.
