Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When creating a new chat room, it's possible to not associate it with a specific site, if you choose "The Stack Exchange Network" from the site list (it appears twice for some reason, but that's a separate issue):

However, when editing a room, the option doesn't appear on the host list:

Neither does (default), the host unassociated rooms typically have. As far as I can tell, there's no way to dissociate an existing room from a site; it has to be created with no site and left that way

OK; all addressed:

  • the duplicate now isn't duplicated duplicated
  • the network-wide option is now available (when appropriate - i.e. chat.SE)
