Chat Posts: A Guide for Larger Communities (and any community...)
By - jleeky
I think a cool option would be the ability to turn a live chat, back into a regular thread. It would be cool to have the live chat during an event, then once it's over turn it into a regular thread with normal comment chains and such.
That's a super interesting idea and a concept that we were discussing as a team during the initial design and discovery phase of this product. We don't have plans to do this right now as we're interested in seeing this product in the wild and understanding the various use cases better to see if this becomes a real need or not.
I totally hear you though - and had also thought it could be a very powerful way for this feature to work. We'll see what happens - thanks for surfacing this idea!
Is there any way to distinguish mod comments? I couldn't see anything and it might be hard for people to take my mods seriously if they are unaware of their authority.
Ah - as a work around, right now if you distinguish on old.reddit it will show as distinguished in the chat. However - thanks for surfacing this one - you should be able to distinguish from the chat view.
Ah. Okay. Thanks!
[Our test thread.](https://www.reddit.com/r/Turkey/comments/flyig6/turkey_live_chat_test/) 5.6k comments in 4 hours. It was a nice experience overall, I liked this feature a lot, our members enjoyed it a lot. We are discussing about giving live chat thread creation permission to our members. Maybe we will organize other live chat threads in future but for now we will continue over chat rooms.
You need to improve the spam filter though, one guy was spamming "t"s and I had to ban him for 1 day.
Amazing - I'm glad it worked well for you. Thanks for the update.
Hey, can the layout please be changed so usernames aren't on the same line as the messages? It's so hard to read because the text doesn't line up consistently. [Something as simple as this would be a millions times better.](https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/587458183166033920/703677355666833428/Screen_Shot_2020-04-25_at_2.42.13_PM.png)
I accidentally joined a chat post and now I keep getting unwanted notifications, how do I leave the chat or at least mute it
Turn off your phone
What the ultimate chat would be is to creat a chat and then everyone who joins jumps into a live VR video chat room. Everyone must don the proprietary Reddit VR accoutrement and away we go!
I did a [test thread](https://www.reddit.com/r/csgo/comments/flh115/test_chat_post_maybe_ignore/) and two ((https://www.reddit.com/r/csgo/comments/fm5wxg/yeah_vs_thunder_logic/), (https://www.reddit.com/r/csgo/comments/fm2pdq/astralis_vs_ence/)) game threads. The test thread had about 3K comments and the two game threads were fairly lively, if not as busy. Overall, the experience has been pretty great. There was a little confusion, but people seemed to enjoy them and I had a great time interacting with the community. I tried going without automod rules at first, but once people realized they could spam stuff, that went out the window.
My only concern is that the live thread post scheduling doesn't seem to work. I scheduled one post and when it went live, it was a normal text thread. I thought I messed up, but I just tried scheduling three more live posts and they all reverted to a standard text post. Even after editing them. Example: [https://i.imgur.com/5GPr8RA.gifv](https://i.imgur.com/5GPr8RA.gifv)
Hey - the scheduled post beta does not yet support "live chat" - but the team plans to do so once the scheduled post product is out of beta. I know it's a bit inconvenient - but for now you may have to do something manually.
Ah. Okay. That's a bummer, but I hope it's added sooner than later. I might make a bot to auto post stuff. Do you know if the API supports chat posts?
I have placed request for three large subs. Waiting for response from your side.
Just ran a test chat on a medium sized sub (40k) and response was nice.
Thanks - we'll be enabling more communities next week - I'll let you know when it happens.
Tell me more

How to I join?
How to I apologize to a mod that banned me over possibly reading them wrong? I want to send a heartfelt massesge, where I think I messed up, and to be able to thank the ppl who helped me. Please point me I. The right direction. This was on r/assistance
It is honorable to admit our wrong or misstep, especially in the face of being punished for it. More honorable is to muster the courage and swallow one's ego to apologize.
As it is said "to err is human and to forgive is divine". I advise you state it plainly that your hand was actually caught in the cookies jar, you recognize the penalty and promise not to tread such path.
I wish you warm reception and pardon.
They lifted the ban, same day I think, bc I was thoroughly befuddled about what I'd done, and the mods understood it was a misunderstanding (on my part I'm sure) Im not necessarily stupid, but probably in an older demographic and still don't really know how to navigate reddit as well as I should after a year. I just felt so bad and held no animosity to anyone, luckily for me neither did they. I think Google should be my friend as I learn more about the how to's and what ifs and why's of the whole platform.
Thanks for your reply, btw. Hope your evening/rest of the day is pleasant and appreciate the comment. Take care.
We all support free speech.
Of course that's true. But the real fact is that there is nothing like "free speech". Because each one is responsible to speak out/writeup in accordance with rules of the community or face appropriate consequence (s).
This is because without rules and penalties it is difficult to measure people's level of responsibility. So yes, we all support free speech embodied in responsibility for the right of others, best practice and established rules.
