I created a room, and now it's frozen due to inactivity.

How can I unfreeze it?

Room owners can't unfreeze a room; you need a moderator to do it.

You could mod flag something and ask that way, or drop a request into the The Assembly room.

Said moderator would then do so from the "access" tab of the room's overview page (accessed via the "info" link).

I see that there is not much activity in The Assemly these days, it was even frozen for inactivity. Is is still a good place to go with request to unfreeze a room? Would Tavern on the Meta be a reasonable alternative? It seems to be rather active these days. Are there other suitable rooms? – Martin Jun 10 at 7:08
Clarification: the mods in question are per-site mods, right? So apple.se mods can unfreeze apple.se chat rooms? – Sparr Jun 10 at 15:55
@Sparr Any moderator can unfreeze any room, the only time site matters is dealing with private rooms (unless you're talking about Stack Overflow chat; naturally only Stack Overflow mods can help you there) – Michael Mrozek Jun 10 at 15:57
FWIW Tavern was also recommended here by Shadow Wizzard. – Martin Jun 11 at 9:55
@Martin I wasn't aware of The Assembly until now, looks like it's better since it's hosting more moderators. – Shadow Wizard Jul 14 at 13:26
@ShadowWizard I am not sure whether The Assemly is better. At the moment, there seem to be rather low activity in that room, in fact, it was frozen for inactivity several times. – Martin Jul 15 at 8:08
@Martin oh, so.. guess both rooms are a win-win. (together :)) – Shadow Wizard Jul 15 at 8:10
