So, in screwing around with the settings for chat (as a result of the activity in the mod chat room today), I changed my parent user, a diamond moderator on Academia.SE, to my SO profile, which does not have a diamond. As a result, I was booted from the mod chat room. However, changing the profile back didn't re-allow entry. Is this by design? I'm kinda confused about the whole "parent user" bit to begin with.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Changing your parent user didn't automatically refresh your chat profile, so you weren't considered a chat mod. It automatically syncs every hour or so, so it would've figured it out eventually, but I forced it to refresh now so you should be able to join again. I don't know if this is by design or not
