I guess it this was more-or-less what you wanted - I guess simply looking up quid's chat profile and then using chat invite would work just as well. But it probably doesn't make much difference.
It is interesting that at the moment you're not pingable in this room. (Nothing is offered in the autocomplete after I start typing @a). But that's probably becaus you haven't posed any messages here...
 
@Martin I got your ping in your chat. Feel free to test if you can ping me here now? Thank you, Martin!
 
@Martin why would she be pingable here if not in the room and never even posted?
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar Yes, I understand that. OTOH, this was the room creator, so I wasn't sure how things actually work there.
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar I just posted to test, @Shadow. And please mind your pronouns, I am a she.
 
@amWhy sorry, didn't know, fixed
 
3:17 PM
Anyway I can confirm that now I am offered @amWhy in the autocomplete. (And you're in the list of the pingable users.)
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar Thanks! No problem. Now I see I am pingable!
 
oh, I see now, @amWhy created the room but never posted and left the room, hence wasn't pingable.
Now all three of us pingable for 7 days no matter what. :D
 
Indeed, @ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar, and @Martin! Thanks to you both!
 
(or 48 hours using short form like @Mart or @Sha in my case ;))
 
I just wanted to make quite an innocent remark that this is a situation you don't see that often - a room with no messages. I did not expect that it would spark much debate.
 
3:19 PM
@Martin hehe that's my fault, I spark debates anywhere. ;)
I still didn't figure why a new room, but it's fine, Meta chat isn't flooded with rooms.
BTW, @amWhy not sure if you're aware that your network profile isn't up to date with your site profiles?
You have to manually synch it with existing site.
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar We have to have a Cafe, if we have a tavern!
 
@amWhy well there is coffee in the Tavern ;)
 
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar ;P
 
@Martin so, how are you related to @quid? I mean SE-wise :)
 
quid is a mod on Mathematics and Mathematics Educators. They used to be active on MathOverflow before deleting their account.
I used to be active mostly on Mathematics - probably less so these days.
Both quid and me are rather active on Mathematics Meta. So it's quite natural that we run into each other quite often.
 
3:31 PM
Oh, thanks, much more clear now. :)
Always nice to understand stuff, and get to know more people.
 
Ok, we've posted a few messages here and elsewhere. Some rooms are now safe from freezing for 14 days....
I should probably move on to do some other stuff - see you later!
 
cya!
And BTW, we can see who is talking in private rooms in the users page, essentially all those where it doesn't show which room they last posted in:
Considered posting a bug report about it, but not sure how to phrase it. IMO, private activity should be kept, well, private, even the last activity. It should just show nothing at all.
 
3:47 PM
By the way, @Sha, I agree with your name appendage "No More War"!
 
 
1 hour later…
5:05 PM
@amWhy yeah, thanks. Actually I intended to change again, just didn't find something suitable yet.
And by the way, I'm not pacifist, I served in the army and believe country should have strong army and go to war when needed to defend itself, it's just that in this specific war, it's a totally useless one, and I didn't want to pick sides like many do. Urgh hope it make sense, sorry if not. :)
Probably I'll get back to some funny name, or just vanilla Shadow Wizard for a while.
Did you have different names, on SE or elsewhere? @amWhy
 
5:26 PM
@ShadowWizardSaysNoMoreWar No. I've not any other username. I've changed it to amWhat, amWho, just for fun, but those each were rolled back asap. So I guess I have, but with the help of site mods, I was able to revert within a week of each of those! ;D I wasn't suggesting you were a pacifist. I respect your stances.
 
6:09 PM
@amWhy cheers! I was always Shadow, usually with a Wizard, and many times with something extra. Shadow Wizard is my online identity since 2000, the year I started using the internet. ;)
Got any interesting suggestion for my next name change?
