@rebolek Thanks, I will give my best to get that to run using Red. Are there a few lines of explaination for your nice tool somewhere?

Hello everyone! Is this soft can threads?

Might be asking if conversations can be threaded... I've seen other people ask. I think Slack and/or some other apps have threading.

@nafg
Slack has limited (more like comments on a message)

what is the economic model of gitter? I can't find it anywhere. Is there any pro accounts or something? i suppose that money is needed for the servers for example..
nafg
@nafg
@luminosidade_twitter they used to be their own company and charged for private rooms but then gitlab bought them and made it completely free. They plan to integrate it more with gitlab.

@nafg thanks!!!

Hi, there I have a question. My bitbucket events aren't being posted to my gitter community despite enabling the integration.
Am I the only one having this issue?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@jllouis I don't see any recent reports.

There is this outstanding issue, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/issues/1309

I have a question: Message history is supposed to be unlimited, but I don't see scrollback before Sept 18 20:48 in a room. Nor does a colleague of mine. But another participant sees messages going back to Sept 12.
So... do I need to file a bug? Or is there some reasonable explanation that support can find by looking in gitter's internal logs?
Felix S Klock II
@pnkfelix
Oh, correction: All participants are only able to scroll back to Sept 18 20:48
(but it seems clear from context that there were almost certainly messages before that point? Is there some way that someone could have cleared the history?)

Help me:
I today signed up on the web app using twitter. Now I can't find how to connect my github account too. Can't join many rooms as they allow only Github users. How do I connect github with my new gitter account?
Ben Johnson
@cbj4074
@ShubhamBadal_twitter Sign out of Gitter, and this time, sign-in with your GitHub credentials.
(not your Twitter credentials)
Shubham Badal
@ShubhamBadal_twitter
@cbj4074 It will connect my github to this account if my github account has the same email id. Otherwise it will result in two separate gitter accounts. Am I right?
Ben Johnson
@cbj4074
@ShubhamBadal_twitter I have to assume so.
Let me correct that: I think they are two "separate accounts", regardless of whether you use the same email address for Twitter and GitHub, but I cannot say with certainty (I'm just another user).
Shubham Badal
@ShubhamBadal_twitter

@cbj4074 That's what my concern is. I have got data and activity in this account and I'll not want a completely new account to be created. Most apps have a 'connect apps' option in settings which I don't find in Gitter. I don't see any settings section itself. I am using the web app.

So, I'll wait for a response from someone in the Gitter team. Thanks for your reply.

Ben Johnson
@cbj4074
Gotcha, that is entirely reasonable. Curious what they say. :thumbsup:
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
https://gitter.im/gitterHQ/gitter?at=59c16882614889d47519d675 @ShubhamBadal_twitter @cbj4074 They will be two separate accounts. There isn't a way to connect another OAuth provider at the moment

https://gitter.im/gitterHQ/gitter?at=59c11a5fbac826f054d7c9d4 @pnkfelix Any admin can delete messages in a room. I don't see any older messages from the archive, https://gitter.im/rust-impl-period/WG-compiler-nll/archives/all or in the raw ElasticSearch index from people chatting at that time
Felix S Klock II
@pnkfelix
@MadLittleMods thanks for the response. Maybe we're just wrong about there being earlier conversations in the room.

@silvanheller
Is there a way change join rights for a room after creating it? We have a room that is currently invite-only, but would like to make it public.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@silvanheller There isn't a way to change the member permissions/security yet. You can email support@gitter.im with a link to the room and the desired permissions/security. If the room is connected with a repo under an org, make sure your GitHub org membership is public.

How does one post an inline-image of GitHub code. Perhaps it GitHub gists shown inline. I'm not talking about

Code using ```'s

But it is formatted in the same way as on a GitHub page.

I've seen them inline on many Gitter's but can pin down how to post one myself :smile:
Ben Johnson
@cbj4074
@georgewsinger Yes, I believe you're referring to inline Gists.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@georgewsinger To add onto what @cbj4074 mentioned, just paste a link to a gist
George Singer
@georgewsinger
If I'm an admin of a Gitter room, is there any way for me to edit posts after 5 min? Or give people the ability to do that?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@georgewsinger No, you can only delete a message after the 5 minute window
George Singer
@georgewsinger
That's quite unfortunate :(
Ben Johnson
@cbj4074
(and a bit surprising... what if somebody is spamming/abusing?)
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@cbj4074 There is some automatic detection of spam. As an admin, you can ban the user and delete their messages. You can email support@gitter.im with the trouble username and permalinks. In terms of development, there is also a PR in the old private repo for reporting messages and checking for low quality messages
Ben Johnson
@cbj4074
@MadLittleMods Oh, okay, @georgewsinger did say, "If I'm an admin of a Gitter room" in :point_up: September 20, 2017 2:00 PM
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@cbj4074 Both of my responses still seem valid :confused: You can't edit, only delete after 5 minutes
Ben Johnson
@cbj4074
@MadLittleMods Ah! Good call! My apologies... I thought he was asking if he could delete. My bad! Thanks for clarifying. :thumbsup:
The current behavior actually makes a lot more sense in light of your explanation.
George Singer
@georgewsinger
Editing after 5 minutes makes typo correction in code snippets tremendously easier. Slack has historical editing past 5 minutes that I grew accustomed to.
InternetUnexplorer
@InternetUnexplorer
There used to be a 10(?) minute window where you could delete and edit, which was changed so that you could delete at any time.
Perhaps the editing time limit could be removed to match this?
