@davida2017w_twitter Thanks for the issue, gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#2060

Is there some way to change name and avatar?
the public one I mean
issue is that github has not messaging, so it is not susceptible to certain kinds of attacks
but gitter is basically nothing but messaging, the entropy is higher and you are exposed to more attackers.
so we really need a ghosting layer

I haven't observed any attacks. I don't know if this is due to luck or good spam prevention. :)

Hey
How to do turn on dark mode in Android app
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
You click the sun/moon/eclipse thing.
cswl
@cswl
I don't see a setting option
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
The icon I'm talking about is near the top near your name and picture.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@cswl @pdurbin It's only available on beta at the moment, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-android-app#early-releases-internal-alpha-beta

@pdurbin Is the dark mode working fine for you? Is the Webframe where the chat is changing to dark mode?

Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
It seems fine. I only just turned it on.

I am getting a 404 error when I try to set up a gitter chat for my GH repo

We recently renamed our github repo (1 week ago) and now all our links are broken in our room. IS there anyway to update the room link?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@GregTheGreek We can update the repo for your room but if you are talking about the integration activity items, they are baked in and we don't have a script to update them, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/blob/develop/docs/rooms.md#change-room-security-after-creation

@GregTheGreek I'll follow-up in your issue, gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#2067

  • When/Where are you seeing the 404?
  • Can you link your GitHub repo?
  • What room on Gitter are you trying to create?

@wherkamp
I get a toast Everytime I get a notification from gitter that's how I know someone has said something lol
The toast states the gitter has crashed
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@wherkamp If you don't want to see the uncaught exceptions (probably fine to ignore), you can turn it off via the Gitter menu -> Notifications -> Show desktop errors,

Wyatt J Herkamp
@wherkamp
@MadLittleMods I am on Android?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@wherkamp Sounds similar to gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-android-app#114

If you can run through the debugging steps there to get some more information about the crash, it would help narrow it down

Wyatt J Herkamp
@wherkamp
404
A crash warning is a nice way of saying you got a message
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@wherkamp Sorry, you are running into separate bug on mobile where the GitLab issue decoration opens in GitHub (which will 404), https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/issues/1985

Here is the issue that you should be able to open https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-android-app/issues/114

@wherkamp
Alright thx I will look when I get home

@MadLittleMods I'm trying to set up gitter for https://github.com/retorquere/zotero-thebrain-export ; I'm linking in my README to https://gitter.im/retorquere/zotero-thebrain-export . That room should be auto-created based on my repo, right?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@retorquere Rooms are not auto-created. You need to create the room yourself
Emiliano Heyns
@retorquere
@MadLittleMods my bad. I thought my previous room was set up automatically -- perhaps by a bot?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@retorquere Room creation is manual so probably not

Hey Guys, does someone know if it is possible to change my Display Name here in gitter? I’ve read the documentation and it only mentions the „username“ which i think is the part behind the @, right? Because i don’t want to change that, only the „Real Name“ in front :)
Just found out, sry :see_no_evil:

:point_up: January 18, 2019 8:56 AM @Bluscream Better to just ask your question right away instead of asking if someone is here. Don't ask to ask, just ask

:point_up: January 18, 2019 4:12 AM @cmpbiendl Feel free to update the docs to make this more clear

A Gitter account is associated with GitLab/GitHub/Twitter and matches whatever info you have on that platform.

@Mohd1991 Are you seeing the 500 somewhere in Gitter? Can you provide some more context?

Okay then, can you make a URL listener for the android app so you can open gitter links in the app instead of the browser?

Also why is there no dark theme in the android app?

Hi. Is this correct room to report or discuss an issue related to my account?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@NetcrackerProjects Related to your Gitter account, yes

Quick question: does Gitter have spell check in the desktop client? If so, how do I enable it? (I'm using the desktop client on Linux, in case that is relevant). Thanks :)
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@codesections Spellcheck is disabled, see gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#915
