Have you ever used LINE open chat? There are different ways to withdraw from an open conversation depending on the general pattern of managers and participants. This time, we will explain everything by pattern. I will also tell you about the forced withdrawal and re-participation method you are interested in.
Big headline: How to withdraw from an open LINE chat
LINE open chat is a group chat that you can participate in anonymously even if you are not registered as a friend. The basic operation is the same as LINE group chat, but the withdrawal method is different depending on the pattern. Let’s explain how to unsubscribe from LINE open chat by breaking it down into patterns.
Pattern 1 Regular participants
First, let’s talk about how to unsubscribe when participating in LINE Open Chat as a regular participant. There are two ways to unsubscribe, so I’ll explain one by one.
The first is when you leave the chat room. A chat room is a screen where a normal conversation flows. There’s a button that shows a three-line menu on the top right of the screen, so tap that. When you move to the menu screen, there is a place where “Withdraw” is displayed, so let’s tap it. A confirmation screen will be displayed at the end.
The second method is to unsubscribe from the open chat settings. First, display the menu with three lines on the top right of the chat room. Tap “Other” in the menu. When you move to the “Open Chat Settings” screen, there is a button that says “Withdraw from Open Chat”. After tapping and confirming, you have successfully unsubscribed from LINE Open Chat.
Pattern (2) Co-Administrator
A “co-administrator” is a participant who, unlike a regular participant, is given some authority by the “administrator” described later. Co-administrators can be created by the administrator settings. Up to 100 people can be placed in one open chat.
How can I unsubscribe from Open Chat if I’m set as a co-admin? In fact, even if you are a co-administrator, the withdrawal method is the same as a regular participant. You can unsubscribe by selecting “Unsubscribe” from the open chat menu or by pressing “Unsubscribe from open chat” in “Open chat settings”.
Pattern ③ Administrator
An “administrator” is an authorized participant in a LINE Open Chat group. The administrator can set various settings such as the name, icon, capacity, and public range of the chat room. You cannot withdraw from LINE Open Chat as an administrator, so you need to follow some steps.
For an administrator to leave, the privileges must be transferred to another participant. First, there’s a button that shows a three-line menu on the top right of the chat room screen, so tap that. When you move to the menu screen, press “Other” to move to “Open chat settings”. Press “Manage Members” and set other participants as co-participants from “Set co-administrators”.
Next, when you return to “Member Management”, there is “Transfer Administrator Rights”, so select one of the co-administrators and set it as an administrator. Then, the participant who was originally an administrator becomes a co-administrator. After that, you can withdraw from an open LINE chat in the same way as how to withdraw as a co-admin.
Forcefully withdrawing participants from an open LINE chat
You can participate in an open LINE chat anonymously, but even in that there is a possibility of trouble. If there are participants who do not follow the rules and etiquette, there is one option of “forced withdrawal”. Here we will look at how to force a withdrawal.
About compulsory withdrawal (1) Persons capable of compulsory withdrawal
Not all participants can force leave. A regular participant cannot withdraw the force, an administrator or co-administrator authorized to withdraw can do so.
In addition, it is decided that only regular participants can be forced to withdraw. If you want to forcibly withdraw an administrator or co-administrator, cancel the setting and change it to regular participants.
Forced Withdrawal ② How to Forced Withdrawal
I will also explain how to force a withdrawal. First, let an administrator who can unsubscribe by force or a fellow administrator who has the authority to open the LINE Open Chat talk room. There’s a button that shows a three-line menu on the top right of the chat room screen, so tap that. Press the “Member” button and select the participant you want to force to withdraw.
As the “forced withdrawal” button comes out, select forced withdrawal. After tapping and confirming, you can forcefully remove the participant from LINE Open Chat.
About forced withdrawal ③ Forced withdrawal due to number of NG words
In LINE Open Chat, you can also forcefully withdraw from the word NG. An administrator or authorized co-administrator can set NG words. To set up, go to the menu screen from the chat room and tap “Bot”. Turn on “Spam Filter” and select “Delete only messages that exactly match NG words” or “Delete messages that contain NG words”.
Once you have decided on the type of NG word, select “Register NG word”. You can set it by entering the desired NG word. NG words can be added later to make it two or more. You can also remove it at any time.
To remove a participant who has said NG words more than a certain number of times, go to the open chat menu from the chat room. Select “Bot” and tap “Spam Filter”. When you press “History”, the message “~~ uses the word NG X times.”
Will it be disclosed if I withdraw from an open LINE chat?
If I withdraw from an open LINE chat, will other participants find out that I have withdrawn? We will see if there are two patterns, when you withdraw and when you are forced to withdraw.
Pattern 1: Withdrawal
If you voluntarily unsubscribe from an open chat, you will know whether or not you will be disclosed in the settings of that open chat. If “Member leaves” is turned on in “Manage system messages” which can be set by the administrator, the fact that the member has left will be displayed in the chat room when the member leaves.
To change the settings, the administrator opens the menu from the chat room. Go to “Other” and select “System Messages” until you reach “Manage System Messages”. As a “Member leaves” item, if you turn it on, it will be displayed when you leave, and if you turn it off, it will not be displayed.
If it is not displayed, it seems that it will basically not be found, but it can be found depending on the number of open conversations. Even if the message is not displayed, if the number of participants in the open conversation is small, it may be open due to the decrease in the number of participants.
Pattern 2: Forced withdrawal
If I am forced to withdraw from the open chat, will it be displayed in the chat room? This can also be changed by the administrator setting whether to display or not.
To change the settings, the administrator opens the menu from the chat room. Go to “Other” and select “System Messages” until you reach “Manage System Messages”. There is a “Member forced withdrawal” item, so if you turn it on, it will be displayed at the time of forced withdrawal, and if you turn it off, it will not be displayed display.
Rejoin the open LINE chat
Is it possible to rejoin after leaving an open LINE chat? Is it possible to rejoin after being forced to withdraw? I will introduce about re-participation and whether you can see past chat history after re-participation.
Re-participation ①Can I re-participate?
From the conclusion, it is possible to rejoin after leaving. Even after leaving, you can rejoin without any restrictions. Only if you resign yourself.
If you are forced to withdraw, the participant will be placed on the “re-entry ban list”. If your name is on this list, you will not be able to rejoin the same open conversation. However, if an administrator or authorized co-admin uninstalls it, it will be possible to rejoin.
To remove the rejoining ban, an administrator or an authorized co-administrator opens the menu from the room. When you move to the menu screen, press “Others” to go to “Open chat settings”. Press “Manage Members” and select the previous participant you want to remove from the “Rejoin Banned List”. By pressing “Allow”, the participant can rejoin the open conversation.
About re-participation ② What happens to past speaking history?
What happens to the past chat history after rejoining an open LINE chat? In fact, in the case of an open chat, you can see the entire chat history so far by rejoining. This is a function that is only available in open chats, as past history will be deleted in the LINE group.
Regarding re-participation ③ What happens to past note history?
What happens to the history of past notes when rejoining an open LINE chat? It is possible to check the history of past notes at any time after rejoining. This is the same as the LINE group function.
About re-participation ④ Can I change my profile name?
LINE open chat is anonymous, but if you rejoin with the same profile name after withdrawing, you’ll know you’ve participated in the past. If you don’t want people to know you’ve rejoined, you can change your profile name when you rejoin.
How to delete open LINE chat?
So far, we have seen how to unsubscribe from LINE open chat, but there is also a way to delete LINE open chat itself. Of course, only administrators can delete them. If you delete it, all past history will also be deleted, so be careful.
To delete, the administrator opens the menu from the chat room. When you move to the menu screen, press “Others” to go to “Open chat settings”. You can delete the open LINE chat by tapping “Delete open chat” and confirming it.
So far, we have presented how to unsubscribe from LINE Open Chat. The withdrawal method from LINE Open Chat varies depending on whether you are a regular participant/co-admin or an administrator. If you are an administrator, you can only withdraw after assigning the administrator to someone else.
In addition, it is possible to forcibly withdraw from the participants who do not follow the rules and etiquette. Please note that you cannot re-join unless you remove yourself from the “re-join blacklist” after forcing a withdrawal. After rejoining, you can see all past conversations and history notes. Please note that if you delete the LINE Open Chat itself, you will not be able to see the past history.
