I'm generally interested in making more use of chat. Before I raise a meta questions about how might that be achieved I'd just like to ask a technical question. If we were to create a new/different chat room - could this be pinned to the front page side bar? Is it the moderators who can do this? Someone else maybe?
As an aside I've just noticed that our chat room has disappeared from the front page. Not a major issue but obviously chat rooms can change locations on the site. Unless I've just got chat room blindness and it is still there.
