I'd like to know, basically, if questions about current MSE chat rooms are on topic on MSE. I'd like to know, because I have concerns about many MSE users, particular askers, likely are not able to readily find an appropriate chatroom (under MSE's umbrella) which doesn't presume the users are regular answerers or well-known users on MSE.
- Tavern on the Meta room description: "MY GOD, IT'S FULL OF STARS AND BACKLOG! Wheel of blame link bolted on for your ease of use: jsfiddle.net/Ldvwp8uv/12/embedded/result".
- Shadows Den room description: "Where words are being associated, a black hedgehog is lurking, and new spells are given. And pings are allowed, so enter at your own risk! Quote of the decade: "No two people are the same, but everyone is worth the same." (@PrincessLuna)."
- Top Secret room description: none.
- Let's get philosophical room description: "It's like a song or something."
The majority of MSE chatrooms are rather cryptic in their descriptions to an interested user "not already in the know." I'm asking this question, because I'd rather not reach the conclusion that the chatrooms I list are intentionally exclusionary/exclusive. I have not reached that conclusion yet, but I've yet to see anyone holding such chatroom accountable for an honest description of what is on and what is off topic.
I have tried to express this concern on four separate MSE chat-rooms, to no avail.
I'd like to know why some MSE regulars create such eclectic chatrooms, for which information about the chats are so cryptic? Are chatroom owners, of the sites I mention, seeking to be resources for users, or not? And if not, why not?
