UPDATE 30-June-2021 (bump) The chat room is frozen again! In fact, it only remained "unfrozen" (by Dan) last time for 2 days before it was automatically frozen again! It has been frozen ever since - 42 days so far.

It seems that if no-one posts a "chat" message in the first 2 days after the room is "unfrozen", it gets automatically frozen again! So, next time the room is unfrozen, post a chat message at the same time, and perhaps post back here as well.

UPDATE 11-May-2021 - It appears to have been frozen again (4 days ago).

I just noticed that the main Webmasters chat room is frozen (for being inactive for a period of time) - can this be unfrozen?

Webmasters chat room is frozen

It's good to have a global Webmasters chat room:

  • I like to throw down the odd chat message once in a while.
  • A good place to post "newsy" Webmasters stuff.
  • (New) Users have a place to discuss "whatever" before posting on the main site.
  • 1
    I just noticed the edit here and unfroze the chat room again. Unfortunately it will periodically get frozen if there isn't any chat comments - hope it gets used more often.
