Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

A user removed themselves as owner yet their name is still italicized. Is this a bug? It appears the only way to get it removed is for me to logout and log back in.

You can also just refresh the page. Chat doesn't (currently) automatically refresh the information it uses to make display decisions about usernames, since it's only cosmetic. – Tim Stone May 8 '12 at 17:39
