A couple days ago, MolbOrg created a chat room called VoteOpen. They intended it as a venue for discussions about whether a question should be reopened or not - which can get long and unwieldy if they take place in comments. The idea is a good one, and certainly not unprecedented: Math Stack Exchange has C.R.U.D.E. (Close, Reopen, Undelete, Delete, Edit), which I believe has worked well.
The point of this question is twofold:
- I want to draw a bit of attention to this chat room, to try to drum up more support and activity for it.
- I also want to know how people think it can (should?) be expanded. I think it could handle discussions about both reopening and closing questions, rather than just reopening, but others might disagree.
What do people think about the usage and scope of the room?
