Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Some sites are integrated to chat . What additional sites should the chat support?

One suggestion per answer.

I personally think any site with OpenGraph data (complete) and/or an appropriate API should be oneboxed. see related post – rlemon May 2 '13 at 22:21

Chat seriously needs to support oneboxing for Vine microvideos. It's the perfect extension to the existing animated GIF support.

AlternativeTo has an API and could be useful for WebApps and SuperUser.

Since a heaps of these chats are of the intellectual sort, I think oneboxing TED talks will be appreciated.

So how about something like this :

Twitter is supported currently, but Tweets with pictures don't show the image(s) in the one box. Please add support for tweeted images, so you don't have to click the tweet to get to them.

Similarly to XKCD, CommitStrip oneboxing could be added

Yahoo Answers! But perhaps only to replace the link with a giant troll face.

(Actually I did have one instance in which it would have been useful.)

There should be some links about the new version, updates, related to the particular rooms technology. For instance about Android, recently Lint is a newly featured added to Android and still many are unware for that, so there should be links about such new update.

I can't imagine a SE site where that would be useful.. – Blorgbeard Jul 15 '10 at 18:03
@Blorg - yes, but Twitter - that's another story! – user27414 Jul 15 '10 at 18:05
@Jon, yeah most of the time, but twitter is occasionally the only reference for some recent event, and if the account is verified as someone who should know.. it's useful. – Blorgbeard Jul 15 '10 at 18:18
Eg. Jeff and Joel talk about SE on twitter = useful for meta chat. – Blorgbeard Jul 15 '10 at 18:19
I understand now. Twitter and Facebook are both places where people blurt out meaningless garbage. However, Jeff and Joel blurt out garbage on Twitter, therefore it is useful. – user27414 Jul 15 '10 at 18:30
And just to be clear, my comment just before this proves that MSO is yet another place where people blurt out meaningless garbage :) – user27414 Jul 15 '10 at 18:30
Facebook is evil ... it should be tipped into the fires of mt. doom where it was forged. – Merlin Jan 25 '12 at 22:32
