Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

It appears there is some trouble with logged in users and the chat site. I noticed this while trying to access the Android SE chatroom, but wound up having the same error over and over: POST http://chat.stackexchange.com/users/login/global 404 (Not Found)

The error View full size

I tried hiding the notification and clicking the "log in" link, but the page just refreshed with the same 404 error. The only difference is that the return URL gets increasingly confusing, and after a few clicks I ended up with http://chat.stackexchange.com/login/global?returnurl=http%3a%2f%2fchat.stackexchange.com%2flogin%2fglobal%3freturnurl%3dhttp%253a%252f%252fchat.stackexchange.com%252flogin%252fglobal%253freturnurl%253dhttp%25253a%25252f%25252fchat.stackexchange.com%25252frooms%25252f25%25252fandroid.

Next, I came over to meta.stackoverflow.com to write this and I noticed in the Console I had forgotten to close: POST http://meta.stackoverflow.com/users/login/global 404 (Not Found), on every page until I logged in again from the log in link on this site, which worked. The weird part is, every other site I already was logged into still worked normally.

I suspect that this is not restricted to this specific chat, hence the [all-sites] tag

What do you mean by "until I logged in again from the log in link on this site"? And did you try the alternative login method offered on that page? –  balpha Mar 22 '12 at 6:11
I had to log in with my OpenID from meta.stackoverflow.com to be recognized as a logged in user, even though I was active on other SE sites. I didn't try the alternative this time and can't remember what the error was last time, but I'll try that again next time this error pops up. –  onik Mar 22 '12 at 9:17
