Many of you know of, and occasionally use, the GIS SE Chat Room. In January of this year I modified the chat room to also include a feed that posted a link to GIS SE Questions whenever they feature on the Stack Exchange Network's "Hot Network Questions".
Hot Network Questions (HNQs) tend to bring additional traffic from outside our regular GIS users, which can mean more votes, comments, and hopefully answers to our "hot" questions. I liked the idea of having a feed of the GIS HNQs as I wasn't fully aware which of our questions ended up there, and it was nice to be able to identify them easily.
Since this feed has now been in the GIS chat room for about 3 months, I am interested to hear what the users think of having the feed in that chat room. Is it good or bad? Do you use the links from the feed to see our HNQs? Does it discourage you from using the chat room? Do you think you miss any interesting or important chat messages because the feed clogs the chat? Is there less chat in the chat room as a result?
If you like it, what do you like about it? If you don't, what about it don't you like? What changes would you like to see made to it?
I would love to hear your thoughts, good or bad, on having the HNQ in GIS Chat Room, and any suggestions you might have.
