Does Ceiling Cat still add value to the chat room or should it be stopped?

When we first launched there was more activity in the chat room, and in the discussion Should we have a beta new question feed in chat? it was started. I wonder though if it still adds value. Trying to find the last time a person posted and read the post is painful.

Should Ceiling Cat be stopped?

    Good question. Chat may indeed die without ceiling cat. I need to think about this. Chat is quiet isn't it? lol* understatement*

  • I sometimes look at the chat transcript to get a quick overview of recent new questions. Not that I'm overly active or anything, but... Commented May 10, 2017 at 3:39

As chat is not active, it think it's better to keep ceiling cat going, so if anyone does want to pop into chat, it doesn't look like a complete ghost town.

It the room becomes active again with regular chat, we can talk about removing ceiling cat then, or possibly just feed meta questions into chat.
