Chat rooms are referenced here -- https://diy.stackexchange.com/privileges/chat-rooms

Yet when I try visiting the url (http://chat.diy.stackexchange.com), I get an error. Is this working for anyone?

Chat hasn't been rolled out for every site yet.

Assuming the site graduates - which isn't certain given the figures on our Area 51 page - then chat will be added.

The privileges page is the same template for all sites, but with different values depending on where the site is in the process.

  • @Steve - Agreed. I think that the fact the site has survived this long means that Jeff & Joel see some value in it. I haven't seen any feedback indicating it might be closed so who knows.

    @Niall - thanks for that link. Joel's comment is particularly important - vote folks, vote.
