Something pretty cool was born earlier today. There was a chat discussion involving new reviewers reviewees, about the site's graduation and the History of Code Review.
The discussion had been dragging for a little while, some regulars were being a bit annoyed:
Vogel612: @Mat'sMug you really want to go through it all over?
Quill: either that, or take this to nth
Context: The Nth Monitor is where not quite on-topic conversations are to be had.
Zak: I also wouldn't mind a walk-through by people who went through it. I've pieced together most of it but never had it gone through all in one go.
So I went and created a new chatroom: CR Chronicles (transcript).
About CR's revival, The Mission, zombies, graduation, etc.
Did I just feel like writing? I don't know. But I always wanted to say this:
Mat's Mug: ok kids, sit in a circle, uncle Mug is going to tell a story
What followed was a narrative of the story behind this graph:
The story was told, the transcript will keep these meta-links together in one place and in context... but the story is still being written as I type these words, and as you read this post.
SE Chat chatrooms eventually freeze, and if nobody unfreezes them, the system eventually deletes them.
rolfl: I think this sort of officially means we are also the first beta site to get a history-channel.
What should we do with this chatroom?
