Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I log into my account and click on chat and it redirects me to chat yet logged in as a different user. There is no way to get out of the user. When I go to another site it displays and uses the proper account but the second I try to chat it goes back to the other account. Really annoying.

There are no details here that would allow anyone to reproduce this problem (or even to sufficiently describe it). Is the "different user" a different one of your own accounts? Is it someone else's? What specific sites are you talking about (since you specify "another site" but post on the StackOverflow meta site)? – Ken White Mar 14 '13 at 21:54
Someone elses account. Not one of my accounts. I am talking about ANY site but chat. – Griffin Mar 14 '13 at 21:55

Shared computer? (Do you know that other user?) Shared IP address? Which internet provider? (Yes, some mess up, big time.) – Arjan Mar 14 '13 at 22:55
Shared computer. And I don't think I know the user. At least I don't recognize the name. All the accounts I remember making didn't last long but were properly named. – Griffin Mar 15 '13 at 1:38
It does work from this other computer however. – Griffin Mar 15 '13 at 1:39

There is a way, though it's admittedly not very at all discoverable:

Thank you for that. Also we need to lower the response limit. I can't say simple responses like Thank you. Or a good deal of others because of the character limit., – Griffin Mar 15 '13 at 19:07
