We recently had our main chat room frozen on the DIY site because we're not that talkative. I'd suggest a feature to allow moderators to explicitly protect chatrooms that would exclude them from these automatic freezing and deletion routines so that discussions appropriate for this forum have a place to go.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Support. The main chatroom for robotics.stackexchange.com (http://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/6221/asimovs-corner) was frozen for 38 days in 2015. As I didn't have anything specific to say, it seemed rude to hunt for a mod chat room to ask a mod to unfreeze it.
