true. I just popped in to check how it is here. How are you?
 
12:36 AM
@Cerberus: I wonder why it's so empty.

@sumelic Perhaps it is a self-perpetuating condition?
People don't come here any more because there is noöne...
A year or two ago, we had daily conversations.
 
4:55 AM
@Cerberus Well, if the people are still here, we'd just need to get them to come to chat more often. If they are gone, we'll need to get new people to come to the site. I'm excited about Latin Stack Exchange entering the beta stage. I was hoping the site would open yesterday, since it's apparently usual to have it be the Tuesday or Wednesday after meeting the requirements, but it seems it's been delayed.
@Cerberus: I see that Reg Dwight and Robusto used to be active here. It's too bad that they left. At least Reg Dwight is still active on ELU. My main motivation for getting to 10000 rep on ELU is so that I can read the meta post Robusto made and then deleted before leaving. I'll probably end up disappointed and unsatisfied, but I'm curious!

@sumelic Oh, huh, I didn't get a message about Latin.SE!
Edepol! Surely I must have committed to it? Or didn't I?
@sumelic Yeah, it is very sad. I don't often visit the English any more either.
I'll post screenshots of Rob's deleted post in chat for you (unless you don't want that).
The English room is now dead most of the day. It used to be very active every day.
 
7:14 PM
@Cerberus I didn't either. It seems they are holding off on sending the messages until the site is up.
I just learned about it by checking the Area51 site.
@Cerberus Oh, thank you! I think I will decline, actually. I don't want to feel like I'm going behind someone's back, and also, it's been useful motivation in the past month.
At least one good thing about the delay on the Latin site is that it gives me time to study and come up with some good questions beforehand.
 
@sumelic Hmm so I be still be able to access the beta?
@sumelic Actually, Rob told me to post screenshots in chat at the time. He merely deleted his question because he didn't want a discussion on Meta.
But if you want to keep it as motivation, I won't.
 
7:30 PM
@Cerberus Yes, you should be able to; you are currently following the proposal: area51.stackexchange.com/users/33446/cerberus
 
Yay!
The last time Latin.SE made it to 200 committers, it was shut down by SE before beta could launch.
I think.
Wasn't it?
They didn't think Latin was viable, or something.
Latin is as alive as can be!
 
@Cerberus That was before my time, I think. The discussion I found indicates it didn't get enough people committed within the time limits: discuss.area51.stackexchange.com/questions/19121/…
 
@sumelic Hmm there have been several Latin proposals.
I think the one I was thinking of is an even earlier one.
Like 2011 or 2012.
(I joinced SE in late 2010.)
(Or maybe I joined Superuser even earlier.)
 
7:48 PM
@Cerberus Huh, I guess it's taken a while to get as far as we have.
 
7:59 PM
@sumelic Quite!
I hope the new site works out.
