How to create chat room for question if SO didn't suggested the link

I have question with lot of comment exchange but SO didn't suggest to switch to chat:

How to send response using jest function? It gives async callback error

I've tried to create room:

https://chat.stackoverflow.com/rooms/info/198414/how-to-send-response-using-jest-function-it-gives-async-callback-error

but it's seems it's public room like C++ and not this lightweight question chat.

So How can I create chat for a question if SO didn't provided the link?

What's best way to handle Questions centered around obvious Syntax or Logical Errors [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

How does SO handle Questions that are centered on obvious Syntax or Logical Errors usually by the asker?

Though some of these questions can be useful if they are common beginner mistakes or stem from a widely misunderstood concept.

But I'm talking of the obvious mistakes like - omitting a closing brace. - using undeclared and undefined variables.

Sometimes, these errors get pointed at in the comments section and are resolved under 5mins tops. For instance see this (onclick creating new javascript object every time).

So, what does SO do or advise users to do. - Does SO close or clean up these questions? - Does SO advise users to close or remove these questions. - If these questions do add to the body of knowledge (for instance identifying common programmers' mistake), how does SO determine that? Does SO recommend flagging such question? - Is there any other way SO handles this or advises users to handle it.

UPDATE

This is no duplicate of this (Are typos always off-topic as Q&A?). I've gone through it. Here, the asker even obliges to delete the question. Mine is a more general case. Sometimes, the asker is adamant (even after the error is pointed out in comments) and the question keeps getting answers. See this for example (TypeError: Cannot read property of value between two getJSON functions). Sadly, I was unguided and I answered the question with a deserving down vote :).

So, my question is in order to help users (asker and answerer) take decisive steps on such questions. I'm not considering only whether to flag or not. I want a more general and complete guide (including flagging) for asker and answerer.

Is it OK to pay people to answer questions? [duplicate]

I've got a SO question that hasn't been answered (and not enough reputation to promote it).

I'm considering trying to pay someone to answer the question--if I can find someone who is able. I would use a freelancing site like UpWork to find a developer with the appropriate skills and offer the job to them.

Is it acceptable to pay people to answer SO questions?

On Teams on the mobile site, the link to my profile from the top right dropdown goes to my main Stack Overflow profile

On the normal mobile if I am at the homepage or other parts of a Team:

enter image description here

And I click on the top right button, I get a link to my SO profile:

enter image description here

However, on the responsive mobile, if I am at the Teams site and click on my icon:

enter image description here

I get sent to my Charcoal profile. Testing this link on the mobile site, it is designed for mobile devices, so there’s no technical limitation:
