    Loop
In summary, being "out of the loop" means being uninformed or not actively involved in a particular situation or topic for a period of time. People say this phrase to acknowledge their lack of knowledge or understanding due to not being involved or informed. The length of time for it to be significant can vary. Being "out of the loop" is not necessarily negative, but it can be a disadvantage if one needs to be up-to-date. To catch up, one can ask for updates, do research, or attend relevant meetings or discussions. It may also be helpful to ask for a summary or overview before diving into details.

Anyway, is there a chat session today, and if so, what is the link?
