Can we make the dice bot more accessible?

Should we turn off the HNQ feed on our main chat room?

Yes, let's switch it off. It fills entire page scrolls with chat messages in the room which impedes our ability to have conversations there now that things are slower. It can move to the ticker, but ...

According to this Meta.SE post you need 10k reputation to view frozen/deleted rooms. It looks like neither you, nor any of the other users that can't see this room have at least 10k reputation on any ...

Coming at this from a different angle, there's nothing stopping a (20+ rep) user from doing exactly what you're suggesting. You could, if you like, instead of leaving a "usual" first comment take a ...
