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

While viewing Shog's chat profile to make myself feel like less of a nerd1, I noticed a promising link in the description of one of the rooms he was listed as being in:


Naturally I clicked it, and it took me to The real link (which shows up in the title text if you hover over it) is A minor annoyance, to be sure, but probably easy to fix.

1I wanted to make sure he had more rep than me, because no one else I saw in the Android Town Hall Chat did. Ugh. I need to offer more bounties or get a life or something.

Also for anyone using the Chrome 16 beta, that first backticked URL should show an ellipsis at the end. This version has an incredible number of bugs. – Matthew Read Dec 7 '11 at 2:23

They don't get linkified at all. I don't know which functionality of your browser turned that into a link, but it wasn't us.

We only linkify the room description on the room's actual live chat page.
