There is a Pastafarianism Chat room that was created as a child of English.SE. As this is chat room for an Area51 proposal it the room should probably be a child of Area51.

I searched and found two somewhat related question Unwanted feature: chat account auto-re-parenting & What happens to chat rooms whose parent sites get closed? neither seems to address this question.

The URL is not parent specific, so it would seem parent is an attribute that should be easy to change. Can a chat room have the parent site (also known as host) changed?

    Is the downvoter disagreeing with the proposed change, or making a swipe at how ridiculous the whole pastafarianism thing is? – user102937 Oct 6 '14 at 19:12

Yes, the parent site can be changed.

The Pastafarianism chat room has been officially adopted by Area 51. :)

  • Anna, can you make me an owner of the chat room? – James Jenkins Jan 7 '15 at 11:11

  • can the owner of the room change it, or does it have to be an SO admin? – user13267 Oct 27 '15 at 23:11

    @user13267 On chat.so and chat.mse, it takes an employee with chat admin privileges. On chat.se, a moderator on the parent site should be able to make the change. – Adam Lear Oct 27 '15 at 23:54
