I notice that our chat room, Ham Shack, is overall less active than it used to be, even though the Q/A activity has been improving a bit recently (all subjective, I have no numbers to back this up). I also notice that the sidebar widget that shows chat rooms hasn't been showing up on the main site at all lately (though I just saw it briefly on this meta, and I could be wrong about it never showing up).

Is there some broken association that can be fixed to make it show up on main as well as meta reliably? I think having chat more obviously available will help improve general participation indirectly.

I recognize that it might be that public beta sites don't have itit might be that public beta sites don't have it, but comments there indicate that it should be showing up on question/answer pages (and in fact it does on meta, but not on main).


New observation July 8: The “n People Chatting” sidebar item is showing up frequently (though not on the front page), but it does not list the Ham Shack room or any other — oh wait, I said something in the room and now it does after a few minutes. Whew. So, problem fixed? I'll wait to make other observations or for official word.
