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

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
