If you talk to someone in comments too much the site says "move this to chat".

Then you push a button, but what if the person won't chat with you? What is the point of the feature?

There needs to be an "undo" because I think I made a mistake with turning a comment thread to a chat. Or at least a warning that you can't undo it.

  • Can't you just leave or delete the chat room? If you can't delete it yourself, ask a mod.

  • @Vincent Well anyone who can push what buttons you may, I just wasn't trying to start an argument, I was not trying to offend anyone, but if someone won't talk to you how do you work it out? But chat just went worse. If you can delete the chat just delete the chat, here is a link: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/16737/…

  • I'm not a mod, so I can't delete the room for you. I guess one of the mods will take care of it, but you can always ping them in the general chat.

    Why have you marked this as a bug? You converted the comments to chat, the other user joined the chat, chatted with you, and ended the conversation. This seems like everything worked as intended to me. Perhaps feature-request is what you're getting at

Comments over time are generally removed. To learn more about comments reference: "How do comments work?"

Comments are temporary "Post-It" notes left on a question or answer. You should not expect them to be around forever: Once a clarification has been made, an edit added to the post to include new information, or the issue in the comment is otherwise resolved, it is subject to deletion. In reality, many obsolete or chatty comments remain untouched due to the high volume of comments posted, but this does not mean that they can't or shouldn't be deleted in the future.

The purpose of the comment system is not to have a full discussion which is why it will post a chatroom for you to take your discussion.

In regards to the situation I believe you may have mis-understood the question and made an answer too quickly. It seems it was a mistake, we are all human (well some of us) and I see you removed your answer so it's not a big deal.

On the issue of tagging, this isn't a bug, a bug tag is used only when an issue exists so please dont use the bug tag unless you have a site issue.

There needs to be an "undo" because I think I made a mistake with turning a comment thread to a chat. Or at least a warning that you can't undo it.

No, there doesn't need to be an undo. You actually did what you were supposed to do. Your took what was a discussion to the right place and finished debating or whatever to resolve your debate/discussion/event. I also see you want the chatroom to be removed. Over time the system will automatically hide it from everyone so you wont have to worry.

Hope this helps.
