I'm on Android right now, pasting is broken, scrolling is slow and doesn't really work, many features are missing, you are ocasionally left trapped in a blank activity, notifications are inconsistent (either not showing or showing the same notification repeatedly), etc.
Yesterday I had to post a message and delete it because scrolling was broken and ai could not see new messages.

Hello gitter devs, Has there been any change in the rules for sending by email, the notification of unread messages? I do not access gitter all the time, so this is a feature I liked.

@mydigitalself
@luzfcb we have some ongoing issues with email notifications whilst switching email provider - hope to have this 100% working soon

@luzfcb
@mydigitalself ok.

Hello, I was wondering if somebody could help me get my room renamed :)
I created an issue at support@gitter.im but no reply, this might be quicker

@zach-king
is there any group/room for Groovy questions?

@pdurbin
I'm not seeing much at https://gitter.im/explore/tags/groovy

@alexknvl
Apparently they use Slack - http://www.groovy-lang.org/community.html
Zachary King
@zach-king
hmm...welp :/
I'm new to Gitter so wasn't sure
I'm also new to Groovy so I was just looking for a general question-answering group lol.

@alexknvl

And you have to apply for it :P Wow, what a way to be welcoming to newcomers:

This information is not retained after the verification process. If we are unable to find your email address associated with one of the links provided, an employer's custom domain, or the Apache Groovy mailing list your request may be delayed or denied.

I don't know why people like Slack so much. It doesn't have the single most important feature of Gitter - markdown with syntax-highlighting in triple quotes
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Gitter is better than Slack for open source because of the transparency.
Alexander Konovalov
@alexknvl
Btw this is technically not the right place to discuss this, there is a general gitterHQ/developers channel. This channel is supposed to be used for bug reports / issues with Gitter AFAIR.
Zachary King
@zach-king
Whoops. Well now we know. Again, new to Gitter
You'd think it'd be named gitterHQ/issues or something though...just sayin
InternetUnexplorer
@InternetUnexplorer
gitterHQ/developers is a trainwreck. While it has gotten better recently, I would redirect people there sparingly.
Alexander Konovalov
@alexknvl
Ah, didn't know. I usually don't venture outside of Scala related channels.

I have my own gitter room. But I can't delete my room, maybe because leaving. How to fixed that?

@arch-master
@dikiaap What do you mean, "maybe because leaving”?

Hi, I am using Gitter Mac application, but everytime I click to a notification from Gitter, it doesn’t show the latest messages in the room. I had to scroll down to see the latest messages. It is a bug?
Arch Master
@arch-master
@gcoban Let me test that! Send me a message.
InternetUnexplorer
@InternetUnexplorer
@arch-master I think what @dikiaap means is that he suspects that he is unable to delete the room because he left it.
Arch Master
@arch-master
@InternetUnexplorer I understand. Can’t he just join it again?
@gcoban Yes. It is probably a bug.

@gmcdonald
Hi All, anytime I try and create a 'myorg/mychannel' it says address invalid. Even though 'myorg' is showing up fine to create. Any ideas?
Diki Andriansyah
@dikiaap
@InternetUnexplorer @arch-master yes. I'm not owner anymore
Gökhan Çoban
@gcoban
@arch-master Is it not about direct messages, I mean the room :) Anyway, great app, thanks.

Hi! I own a Gitter chat room and I want users to always see my status as "online". Is there a way to have my status to always be set to online?
Kieran Potts
@kieranpotts
Hi. I cannot create a community for my GitHub project, BuildGem: https://github.com/buildgem. The chat room was created by me (https://gitter.im/buildgem) but I clicked a few buttons and the room has somehow ended up with no people or owners, so I can't delete it to start over. Can you help?
Mike Bartlett
@mydigitalself
@kieranpotts if you click on Add a room at the bottom left, can you pick Buildgem in the community drop-down?
@gmcdonald what exactly are you trying to create? If you create a new community with the little + button in the bottom left, pick your org from GitHub etc...
Kieran Potts
@kieranpotts
@mydigitalself No, it's not there. I can see "buildgem" under "Your Organisations" (list of GitHub organisations). If I click that, the popup says "The room buildgem does not exist yet". Clicking the "Create" button on that popup does nothing - the popup stays and the room is not created.
Mike Bartlett
@mydigitalself
i have a feeling i know what this is...
Kieran Potts
@kieranpotts
@mydigitalself The OAuth Application Policy page lists TWO entries for "Gitter Private Repo Access" (both Approved), while my GitHub Authorized Applications page lists only ONE.
Mike Bartlett
@mydigitalself
does one say Private and the other say Public?
Kieran Potts
@kieranpotts
Yup. I missed that. "Gitter Private Repo Access" and "Gitter Public Repo Access" are both entries in the OAuth Application Policy page. There's only "Gitter Public Repo Access" under Authorized Applications.
Mike Bartlett
@mydigitalself

can you try add Gitter Private Repo Access to your own, wait a few minutes, refresh, then see if BuildGem appears on the Add a room dropdown?

you should be able to add this scope under the Add a room modal, there should be a link to turn on access for private repos.

alternatively, remove it from the oAuth Application Policy page, as above - wait a few mins, refresh and try again

Kieran Potts
@kieranpotts
@mydigitalself That's a step closer. I've got Gitter Private and Public Repo Access in my list of Authorized Applications on GitHub. And I can now see "BuildGem" in the dropdown list: Add a Room > Community. However, I still cannot create the "BuildGem" GitHub-based community. It fails with an error whichever way I try to do that. That might be because a community of this name already exists (https://gitter.im/buildgem), the one that has somehow got disassociated with my account. Appreciate your help Mike...
Mike Bartlett
@mydigitalself
@kieranpotts what happens now if you click Buildgem under "Your Organisations" ?
and I assume you can create "buildgem/chat" using the Add a Room flow? or if you want to create a room for buildgem/buildgem then just type buildgem into the the room name (it should auto-complete with valid repo names)
/buildgem is just the community root, most users will just see a directory of rooms in the same way you see a list of repos in GitHub. rooms need to be created under the root e.g. buildgem/buildgem or buildgem/chat or whatever you want
Kieran Potts
@kieranpotts
@mydigitalself Hi Mike, yes, so in terms of adding a community for the buildgem organisation, that is still not working. From the Create New Community page, behind-the-scenes the API call to https://gitter.im/api/private/check-group-uri?uri=buildgem returns 409 Conflict...
However, I can now add rooms to the buildgem root, as you suggest. That wasn't working earlier, either! That will do me nicely for now. Really appreciate your help - thanks!
