So, apparently The Biosphere (our BIO.SE chat room) has been frozen due to inactivity.

Obviously not a big deal (since apparently nobody used it frequently enough to avoid being frozen):

Rooms will exist indefinitely, so long as there is at least one person actively talking in the room. A room is considered worth retaining if it has more than 15 messages by at least 2 users.

But...it wasn't completely ignored or altogether not useful at times sooo..

How do we get it unfrozen??

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, @Bryan. I was apparently too lazy to MetaMeta my question, but apparently not lazy enough to throw together a gif of a hampster getting microwaved :p. $\endgroup$ – theforestecologist Jan 31 at 23:32

Mods can unfreeze a chatroom.

The mod would do so from the "access" tab of the room's overview page (accessed via the "info" link).

If you message user @Floern on the SEBotics chatroom about the @GenericBot and ask about the chatroom antifreeze feature, your chatroom will live eternally.
