I got that quite a few times, it usually goes away if you refresh. – Yannis Feb 8 '12 at 12:17
It's displayed because it contains more information than just that, e.g. the link to the FAQ. – Daniel Beck Feb 8 '12 at 12:21

That one is controlled by a cookie; it isn't related to your reputation, so much as people new to chat (meaning: a very high rep user could still be new to chat). We could perhaps improve that, though - perhaps taking any prior chat usage into account.
