I'm still a moderator pro tempore over at Parenting.SE and therefore ought to have access to the "Teacher's Lounge" chat room, but when I visit the link I get "access denied".

Is something broken? Has someone fiddled with the room's permissions? Or have I been expelled?

possible duplicate of Access denied on TL, what gives? - balpha says he has manually fixed it for anyone affected, though, so I'm not sure why you're still getting the error. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Mar 21 '12 at 13:08
They put you in a timeout for 2 minutes. You can say you're sorry afterwards and get back in, I think. – JNK Mar 21 '12 at 13:08
@JNK: Mods are immune to timeouts. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Mar 21 '12 at 13:09
It seems to be fixed now, or my ban lifted, or whatever it was. – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Mar 21 '12 at 13:26
I may have missed you when I fixed the moderator accounts after the issue @BoltClock mentioned. Sorry about that. – balpha Mar 21 '12 at 17:42
@balpha no worries mate! – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Mar 21 '12 at 19:44

Check the setting for "parent site" on your Stack Exchange chat account. If it's not set to the site where you're a moderator you won't have access to the TL.

I noticed that it had been changed to my Area51 account and changed it back to Parenting, then it seemed to work. I wasn't sure if that was the fix or pure coincidence. Thank you! – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Mar 21 '12 at 13:30
@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun I'm assuming you're back in the TL now? – Jarrod Dixon Mar 23 '12 at 4:40
As I said, it works now. – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Mar 23 '12 at 6:42
