This category is named “mine”. It is a bit misleading since it actually shows what rooms I’m in, not what rooms I own:

Misleading category title in action

This suggests that I own The Nineteenth byte, which I do not.

Maybe this could be changed?

    This is the name used everywhere, not just on mobile chat. And I don't see how this is confusing: RO is a permission, like moderator, not actually saying you own a room.

    @wizzwizz4 then why is it called “room owner”? Nov 30, 2023 at 13:11

    Why is what called "room owner"? In any case, "mine" does imply ownership. Maybe "active" would be a better term. (I wouldn't call it a [bug], though..)

    @TheEmptyStringPhotographer It's called Room Owner because Stack Exchange chat was intended to be an improvement over IRC, and the permission loosely corresponds to the IRC +o mode flag. (I would assume.)
