Did you know that…? If we define being OFF from the chatroom if the user waits more than 5 minutes or more to send the next message, being ON if the user sent messages during the period before being considered off, and assume the time for any first message to add 1 minute, we could say that in the Help room (again, Jan/Jul 2015):
OBS: This calculation is not about actual communication with someone: the data is about each user. Actually the data for one room won't be necessarily the same for others. But it help to characterize the communication in the different chats according to the topic, importance and utility of the chat rooms and add more information about dynamics.
Check the quick and dirty code with a graph at its current repo, "ON and OFF times (minutes) in the FCC Help Chatroom".
