What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Please allow us to vote to timeout a room if the discussion starts degenerating or otherwise going off-topic. Unfortunately this is a mods only feature and mods aren't always around.

I think six votes in five minutes should be enough.

Could you define "timeout"? –  Pops Oct 21 '10 at 17:31
    
The topic of a channel should be whatever is being discussed in the channel at the time. There is no such thing as a discussion going off topic. –  XMLbog Oct 21 '10 at 17:52
    
@Popular What happens when moderators hit the timeout picture as shown here -- the input box is hidden and numbers fade in counting down from 60 to 0. When this is finished, chatting may resume. –  badp Oct 21 '10 at 19:45
