# The CRonicles: Story of a Stack

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.

Mat's Mug: people can read the whole story by following the tag's timeline on meta, starting with this one.

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).

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?

• Funny how this question is posted without a link to the actual chatroom... – h.j.k. Sep 9 '15 at 7:50

• Links to noteworthy posts for the annual "Best-of" meta-party, using [tag:best-of-2015] for easy searching of the transcript.
