It's no big secret that I'm not a fan of chat (anywhere, not just here). However, I find myself in the position of wanting to ask a question that is completely off topic for SF, so figured I'd try chat. When attempting to connect to the comms room, while logged in, I was presented with the following message:
Welcome to The Stack Exchange Network chat! You'll need 20 reputation to talk here. This site is moderated by the community, so please be respectful of your fellow The Stack Exchange Network users. And while you're at it, check out the FAQ!
I repeat, I was logged in already. Clearly something is wrong.
