I was not able to chat due to a strange bug. It said I didn't have enough rep even though I have been chatting for a very long time now. I've supplied supporting images that show the error message, what Chat.SE thought my rep was, and what GD.SE (the parent account) says my rep is. I was able to resolve this issue by changing my parent account to a different SE site (SharePoint.SE in this exact case) and switching it back to GD.SE. I wanted to post the bug and supporting information just to raise awareness. My specific case has been resolved but if anyone does have insight on what happened, is it a known issue and a fix is in the works, etc. that would be great.
