So I talk a lot...

Is this enough reason to give me ownership on the chatroom? Is this ownership going to last until manual removal or something else?


See this post on Meta Stack Overflow – to make sure that an active room has an active owner, this may happen automatically.

Whether you do anything with that or not is up to you (being a room owner isn't really a huge responsibility). You could also appoint someone else as a room owner, if they are more inclined to be one.

Finally, you can also remove yourself from the owner list again if you want (just set yourself to "no special access" on the room's access control page). You might want to make some other regular user the owner before this, because if you don't, chances are that you'll get auto-appointed again pretty quickly.

Otherwise, congratulations on your "powers" :)

  • $\begingroup$ You can now change the room name & description, move messages out of the room in batches (see the "room" menu in the top right -- it's not an often-used feature, though), schedule events, appoint other owners... Nothing that you'll use a lot. $\endgroup$ – balpha Aug 16 '11 at 12:32
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, btw: You only need 10 per day to be eligible. The room needs 50 to be considered "in need of an active owner". $\endgroup$ – balpha Aug 16 '11 at 12:51

    $\begingroup$ Oh. I still talk a lot ;-) next order of business, rename the room to "The Land of No Choice"... :-D $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Aug 16 '11 at 12:52
  • $\begingroup$ @Asaf: I like the sound of that! $\endgroup$ – Zhen Lin Aug 16 '11 at 17:04
  • $\begingroup$ @balpha: It's fine that I can move messages and get noted when a messaged is flagged in any given room. Shouldn't I at least be able to delete messages in my own kingdom? :-) $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Oct 24 '11 at 0:04
