What is meta?
Here's how it works:

When you aren't logged in, on the bottom of the screen there is a link that says "logged in" - this really confused me at first as I assumed, since I log into SE with Google, it automatically logged me in via my Google account (it is Android after all). Problem was... I couldn't figure out how to chat via my phone! I felt silly and even downloaded a different browser thinking maybe it was just a rendering problem since the menu button looks like its sitting on top of a text box.

I soon discovered this was a typo and that the "logged in" text was a link to the log in page so it should say "Log in" or something to that extent. (Once I logged in I could chat just fine)

I should probably add I only tested this on the GameDev.SE chat. – SpartanDonut Oct 5 '12 at 16:44
There's a whole sentence there -- "You must be logged in to chat." -- and the "logged in" part is a link. So in that context, the text is correct. The problem is that the non-link text is black-on-black in the gamedev room. – balpha Oct 5 '12 at 16:49
Ah! How about that! – SpartanDonut Oct 5 '12 at 16:52

As I said in a comment, the actual text is in fact correct, since the link is part of the whole sentence "You must be logged in to chat." The issue was that the styling in the chat theme was incorrectly set up, so that the non-link text appeared in black-on-black. And that's of course as good as not being there at all.

That's fixed now. Thanks!
