You mean how if you paste an image from the clipboard into gitter chat, it automatically uploads it without asking you?
It shouldn't do that, yes. It might be intended but it is annoying.

@dogancelik
Drag / drop file and it posts to channel without me editing it first
When I want to post an image, I want to get image markup first then edit and add it in my previous message
Leo Izen
@thebombzen
Well Gitter is not an image editor. Use GIMP or something.
Doğan Çelik
@dogancelik
You don't understand
I'm just saying it shouldn't post without my confirmation
"Edit" as in editing markdown, not editing image
Leo Izen
@thebombzen
Oh okay yea. It should ask before uploading. Even if you select an image in the file dialog it should ask. It's very useful if you accidentally misclick, mispaste, etc. to have a preview of the image before
Doğan Çelik
@dogancelik
I repeat what you said in your first message, it shouldn't post image without my confirmation.
It should do as in Github, paste image code, don't click "Comment / Post" button for me

A collaborator of mine wants to join a private chat room of a private repository. He has unlimited free private repositories in GitHub, is member of the private organization and allowed Gitter access to GitHub. Yet he cannot see Gitter Private Repo Access in his GitHub settings and therefore cannot enable the private chat room. What next? Any advice?

@lars20070 it's not a GitHub setting, googling "Gitter Private Repo Access" gives the instructions here: https://gitter.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/200227051-Private-repository-chat-rooms
@bhaugen you can't convert a room into a community, any room effectively has a parent community. is whoever is trying to create the community a member of the valueflows GitHub org and what is the output of:

https://github.com/organizations/valueflows/settings/applications

"No Organization Owned Applications"

We have a github organization, do we need to register it there? (But I wonder how we created those other rooms within the valueflows community...?)
ah, github have moved the org's oauth apps around since the app store launch a couple of days ago

https://github.com/settings/applications

if you go there, then find any Gitter apps, click on them to see if they've been granted access to your org

Bob Haugen
@bhaugen
I see Gitter Public Repo Access
Last used within the last day · Owned by gitterHQ

@bhaugen what about https://github.com/organizations/valueflows/settings/oauth_application_policy

That says "Policy: Access restricted "

Mike Bartlett
@mydigitalself
and when you go back to your own application settings where you see Gitter Public Repo Access and click on it, you should see a list or orgs that's authorised for
Bob Haugen
@bhaugen
Ok, wasn't granted for valueflows. Done now. Let's see if I can create a new room now...
Yes! :+1: Thank you very much!
Mike Bartlett
@mydigitalself
somebody must have removed that, otherwise you wouldn't have been able to have created rooms in the first place
Graham Perrin
@grahamperrin
Does the disappearance of the original https://gitter.im/valueflows/valueflows remain a mystery?
Mike Bartlett
@mydigitalself
pretty much, but it looks like someone must have revoked some permissions, so perhaps someone also deleted the room intentionally?
Bob Haugen
@bhaugen
I'll check into the permissions situation when I get time, probably tomorrow. Looks like something was changed, either in github permissions setup, or gitter, or in our github org permissions.
Mike Bartlett
@mydigitalself
we can't change the setting in GitHub, we don't have access to those settings through the API

I wouldn't expect or even want you to do that. Your explaining how was good enuf.

I think something was changed in the permissions flow, though - maybe github made some changes - because we could and did add new rooms before, and then we couldn't until I changed the permissions following your advice.

Captain please? How can I exit a chat and delete it from my chatroom list?
Graham Perrin
@grahamperrin
@hengyuanma three dots alongside the name of the room, click to reveal the option to Leave. Does leaving de-list the room?

@InternetUnexplorer

Gitter is to be supportive - but not socially supportive?

@hengyuanma

i think to exit a chatroom and delete it from your left hand panel, you first need to enter the chatroom you wish to exit. seek out the settings icon (top right corner) and check the "i never want to leave or delete this chatroom again" checkbox.

Graham Perrin
@grahamperrin
@maks167 @jagui113 on one hand, there's this, which should be seen and read at the time of joining this room:
Don't just say "hello" and expect everyone to take time out of their life to say "hello" back.
On the other hand, that guidance might not be seen by some newcomers.

Under orientation for newcomers, the third screenshot shows that with some desktop browser window sizes, it's possible to join the room without observing the relevant part of the guidance.
