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

As I have a bad-time with my dial-up (like I get logged out of SE sometimes if I refresh the page), I don't spend much time in chat this week. But, this had happened 3 times in chat. I chat with someone and after sometime, I get into the main site. When I'm in the site, I get notified by my inbox: 3 new replies (based on how much times I get pinged) which is totally ridiculous and it's annoying. I mean, I mostly suffocate before I enter into the chat room (due to my dial-up). And, this makes me suffocate more...

Proof, if you want require...

In h-bar, We also have a chat session once every two weeks. The chat notification says,
A chat session is going to start within 10 mins.

But in the main site, it says: visit our Physics chat session going on right now.

I don't know whether they both are correlated, but seems to me like a relationship. Can someone tell me more about this?
