Hi all - Just wondering if there are any current issues with Welcome messages? If I have a welcome message setup when someone joins the room the message isnt displayed unless they go to #autojoin in the URL. For instance, I know this room has a welcome message, but I never got it when I joined, but when I navigated to https://gitter.im/gitterHQ/gitter#autojoin I did get the welcome. Cheers

Re: https://gitlab.com/groups/gitlab-org/-/epics/360 is there a room where I can see threaded conversation in action?

@grahamperrin the cypress room is trying them out https://gitter.im/cypress-io/cypress?at=5dc5dca16570b076740f795b
@aacgood The only open issue I can find is about including the welcome message on mobile gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#1712 it would make sense to show the message every time someone joins the room. Would you mind creating a feature request issue?

@viktomas yeah I can do, I'll aim to do it over the weekend. I have not been able to automatically trigger the welcome msg for a new user :(

why is it so hard to see what my own name is without sending a message in a room?
is there an account page? How do I sign in with gitlab?
it's just creating a sixcorners_gitlab account
shouldn't the user icon in the upper left have alt text or something?
so I can tell what username I am using by going to the delete account menu, or I go to the image address of my icon, or I can start sending messages in a room to random people. great

each link in the drop down menu when you click your own user icon has a huge margin that shows the pointer finger cursor but isn't clickable.
the delete account window mentions oauth identities but it's not a link and I certainly don't see any oauth identities elsewhere.. is that mentioning a planned future feature that hasn't been gotten around to yet?
this website is maximally frustrating. I think I would rather be using my bank's website.
