Meta Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for meta-discussion of the Stack Exchange family of Q&A websites. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites.

The guidance on all our Q&A sites explicitly disallows meta-discussion, to reduce clutter and noise. There's no chit-chat; just questions and answers.

In order to keep improving our sites, though, we need a space to talk about how the sites themselves work.

So each community has a meta to discuss site-specific issues, and Meta Stack Exchange is for conversations about problems and ideas that affect the whole network.

Launched in 2010, the Stack Exchange network consists of 133 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.

 Twitch is a livestreaming platform designed for gamers. At any given time, you’ll find thousands (upon thousands) of young people streaming their gaming sessions. The livestreams are called “channels”  and you can search channels by the game being played. 

Students were instructed to go to my Twitch page at the time of class, and also open their LectureTools (which displays the slides and allows them to ask me questions and take notes, among other things).

Twitch chat could soon be a lot friendlier: today the streaming service is introducing a new automated tool that’s designed to create a “positive and inclusive chat experience. The moderation tool is called AutoMod, and according to Twitch it uses a combination of machine learning and natural language processing to both block content deemed inappropriate and flag potentially troublesome content for review by a human mod later on. Currently the full version of AutoMod is only available in English, but the tool is also in beta for multiple languages, including Arabic, Czech, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish
