stan_glmer() I got the following warning message:
Some predictor variables are on very different scales: consider rescaling
I’m confused because I thought the default is
autoscale = TRUE (https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/rstanarm/vignettes/priors.html#automatic-prior-scale-adjustments)?

Hey @shira! We actually don’t have a warning like that for
stan_glmer(), so I think this warning is coming from one of the functions in the lme4 package that
stan_glmer() is calling internally. We should probably be catching and suppressing that warning inside
stan_glmer() but I hadn’t seen it before! I’ll open an issue at the rstanarm repository on GitHub and we’ll try to figure out if we can suppress it.
