Some users do indeed follow on to them, speaking to them in the main chat while they "respond" by editing their chat profile descriptions. This is not really different from suspended users "responding" on Twitter, or by email, or in a dozen different ways. I can follow a suspended user on Twitter while they watch the room. So they tweet, I post in the room, ...

It's worth looking at the bigger picture. As a user, the best thing you can do is to ignore them. If there are no results, the behavior is pointless, and they're not going to get what they want. I do realize a few users have trouble with that. That said, they also typically love drama and it's best to deal with it quietly. Telling them on chat to ignore a ...

It seems to me that there are two issues: "With 1 or more starred" is a prepositional phrase that some are interpreting differently The word "starred" is uncommonly used in English How about we rephrase the statement to avoid those two issues reduce the amount of ambiguity? Post 10 messages in chat, with at least one receiving a star. My statement is ...

There's 3 chat servers - SO has its own set of chat. MSE has its own chat and the rest of the SE network has its own chat. The SE network chat basically has folks with 10k anywhere on the network with chat moderation powers. SO and MSE are restricted to their own sites - as a community moderator on SU - I have full powers there, and likewise on MSE as one ...

When you go to any message in the chat transcript, you can click on the small arrow on the left next to the message. Among other things the choices you can do there are "permalink" and "history". (If you are in a chat room, you do not have possibility to choose "history" - but you can still choose "permalink" which brings you to the transcript.) After ...

You should not be specifically contacting someone because they put your question on hold. There's already a required close reason stating why the question is not a good fit for the site, and moderators tend to leave comments on posts that they close. Before you do anything, please check your site's on-topic and off-topic guides. There are often cases where ...

I experimented a drop, and I was unable to replicate what had happened to the message. Just tested. You'll get the first case if you edit and delete all the characters of a message from the transcript (with your mod powers), and then purge the history. Note that it's not possible to edit to remove all the characters of a message from within a chat room, but ...

Encountered this bug yesterday. It not only changes the profile picture but also the display name, in case you use different user names on site A and site B, and create a chat room from a comment thread in site B (using the "automatically move comments to chat"). In fact, even the room's name ("Discussion between X and Y") is copied over from site B rather ...

One of our ISP links to the NY data center was flapping which meant any traffic in or out of the data center to certain parts of the world was not being routed correctly. For now we've disabled that link and all traffic is being routed over our other ISPs

Because the user doesn't have a chat account yet. I just tried searching their username in the list of all chat users and got nothing: Only users who already have chat accounts can be superpinged just by using @@<username>. For a user who has a site account but not yet an account on Chat.SE, you need to superping them using the <userID>@<...

Find out the chat events you are getting the notifications for (from your inbox), visit the info pages of corresponding chat rooms and cancel your registrations. Say you had previously registered for the Happy Hour event in Tavern on the Meta. Then click on the cancel your registration button from the schedule tab.

In addition to what Journeyman Geek said, there is also an option to filter all chat rooms based on their parent site. When you click on the site tab (IIRC the default one), you will be shown only chat rooms associated with the currently selected filter site1. The default filter is your chat parent site2. You can select the filter site by clicking on the "...

If you log in in the browser hosted within the app once, it should persist for future chat visits. We're not doing any new development on the mobile apps at the moment, so that's your best bet.

There is a brief discussion in chat about this but, what happens when a post is quoted, as described in the section of the FAQ titled "How do I format my messages", is that certain types of posts are oneboxed. The square box with a number in it is the number of upvotes that the post has received, in the case of a deleted post it's NULL, while those with ...
