On November the 2nd, a chat message was addressed to me:
@TonyMeyer - You have any ideas for articles you need written? I was going to review a book, but I likely won't finish it for another week or two. ("Embassytown" by China Mieville.)
This happened again on the 13th of November:
@TonyMeyer @OghmaOsiris - FInding it hard to make it through China Mieville's "Embassytown". Urg. If anyone else has read this and wants to review it, go ahead. Will give the book one final effort, then move onto the new "I, Robot" novel next.
Neither of these messages appeared as notifications in my StackExchange inbox. I checked again now, and there are no entries between Oct 20 and Nov 2 from this site, and the Nov 13 entry isn't there either.
My previous post in the room was Oct 20 (I do not recall whether or not I visited the room after that time and didn't say anything). There was no activity at all in the room between Oct 20 and Oct 30.
This has a significant impact on the still-open question about blog organisation. If notifications from chat don't get delivered to the user in some cases (time since being in the room?) then (a) in order for anyone to use it to contact me, I'll need to meet some sort of conditions (e.g. "go into room every day, even if nothing has changed"), and (b) it's fairly useless as a way of contacting potential post authors.
