Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

A user recently prompted me to join chat. When I inadvertently clicked his name in the chat window (I was aiming for the message arrow beside it) I suddenly realized that he had created a half dozen rooms for other users.


So upon joining the chat and asking if he had created a Q on [SO] he comes back with (what appears to be, according to google translate) a lot of Turkish. I'm still not sure I understood what he said. This is not really pertinent to the story except to say that he did not create a Q according to his most recent questions and the question he as asking in chat.

So, the point of this feature request is, he had already created a half dozen rooms, when the C# lounge would've been good enough (there's certainly people in there).

Can we rate limit low rep users on room creation on chat, or, alternately, if they create more than 3 in a 15 minute window flag a mod for investigation? One or the other.

Or perhaps limit the number of rooms that can be created to a certain number if their rep is "too low". There are lots of possible ways to do it, but it should be a rep-based limit of some kind. – cdeszaq Jan 4 '12 at 17:09
That sounds reasonable too. I see a problem, I'm not quite sure what the answer is. – jcolebrand Jan 4 '12 at 17:09
"Ughh." -- Yeah, that sums it up pretty well :\ – balpha Jan 4 '12 at 17:12
As a followup to whoever is curious, he wanted something akin to a jQuery Dialog. I'm willing to bet he has 1000 other problems, as I was only asking about a potential solution, but whatever ;-) – jcolebrand Jan 5 '12 at 5:31
