I think we should move the main-site questions feed out.
Because the ratio of main-site questions to chat activity is so high now, having that feed makes the room look even deader than it is.
If people join the room and see a stream of mostly automated feeds, they might not bother trying to start a conversation; if they see just the messages that were in ...
No, the chat feed should keep its name
Obie the Interrupting OneBox has had its name for over a year. Users taking that name for themselves is not a reason to rename the chat feed.
If the situation is too confusing, have a mod rename any users named Obie. Renaming the chat feed won't prevent this situation from occurring again in the future.
We just need to chat more.
But seriously, the last couple of days, I've seen enough activity in Milliways (The Restaurant at the End of the Universe) that the main feed isn't the sole source of content.
So perhaps we should leave it as it is for now.
Suggestions - feel free to add/edit/remove any:
star-trek-into-darkness, star-trek-next-generation, star-trek-tos, star-trek-first-contact, star-trek-wrath-of-khan, star-trek-voyager, star-trek-2009 -- most of these have at least one question not tagged with star-trek
Alternately star-trek-* if it works technologically (...
I propose 3 feeds into the room from M&TV a main feed, ID feed and current feed:
The main feed will bring in the general stuff we are interested in:
Interstellar is also ...
I don't think you need a main site question feed. We already have one freely available for anyone who wants to check on the site's questions: the main site. There's even a link to it via the logo in the bottom right of the chat room. Having message feeds which are too active is disruptive to using the chat room to, y'know, chat. The dominance of feeds over ...
I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, Movies Obie works just fine and doesn't flood Mos with messages. On other hand, Literature currently doesn't have a science-fiction tag - in order to collect all related questions, we would have to build and constantly update a list of individual works, which will most certainly be a tedious task.
But I propose ...
As a work around, we could create specific feeds with their own user for a "hot" tag, then exclude those tags from the regular feed. That way, both unspoilered fans and uninterested non-fans can ignore that user.
For instance, we could have users
@R2-D2 for star-wars
@Dumbledore for harry-potter
@Data for star-trek
@ID10T for story-identification
@Obie and ...
