Not very long ago I asked this question and regarding that I tried to clear up my confusion of Mauro's answer here. But now I can't access the room. How can I access the room again?

Edit: I can access the room again.

  • $\begingroup$ The room was auto-deleted for inactivity. Are you logged in on chat? Maybe if you are, you could still access it. I can access it, when logged in yet not otherwise. (This is not exactly the same situation though as being a mod on another site I have more options in chat than a regular user.) But still worth a try, log in on chat and try again. If it still fails, ask a moderator for example via a flag on the respective post to undelete and unfreeze it. (In this particular case you can also just ask me here.) $\endgroup$ – quid Sep 8 '16 at 7:01

The room was auto-deleted for inactivity. Inactive chatrooms are frozen and if they do not contain much content they are even deleted (where as usual on SE 'deleted' just means soft-deleted).

A moderator can undelete the room with one click. (Since it is chat a moderator on any SE site can do this, thus I did it.) It should then stay in that state for some days, but will be deleted again if there is no further activity.

As a general procedure I would propose to flag the post to which the chat is attached for moderator attention and ask to undelete the chat. If it is not attached to a particular post I would ask in the Math Mod's office.
