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

At, the "parent user" link links to a user page on a dead site, and that URL redirects to the Area 51 proposal page for that site. Is there a way to see this chat user's user page on another site or Stack Exchange instead?

I think this is currently not possible. Regular moderators cannot assign a different parent site for these users, because the UI for that is broken.

What should happen when a chat user has a closed beta as parent site: Assign Area51 as new parent site automatically. I couldn’t find this user on Area51, he might use another name there.
