We have a comment shortcode
[chat], that outputs as Graphic Design Chat, which serves to lead newer users to chat. This link leads to an overview of all rooms: Ink Spot, Spam Blot, Looking Glass and any discussion rooms from comment migration that haven't been deleted yet.
Why doesn't this link lead to the Ink Spot directly?
I imagine that this would lower the barrier to contribute to chat quite a bit. Preciously little new users have found their way to chat, and even lots of regular users and contributors have never been very present in chat. That may be a personal preference, and I don't want to pressure anyone. But I also want to make it as easy as possible.
