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

Changing your display name on Meta.SO does not change it on Meta's chat area.

At first, I thought it was simply because I was the last person to post in the Gaming Recommendations chatroom, but even my chat profile lists my old display name.

It will change within an hour. If you feel strongly about having it change immediately, you can ask a moderator (anyone with a blue username) to refresh your profile. I've done this in your case now.

Ooh, that's nice. It does update now. Question, though, does the /logout option that used to be cited during the earlier stages no longer work? – Grace Note Sep 9 '10 at 15:11
@Grace Yeah, that still works. But consider it an undocumented workaround :) – balpha Sep 9 '10 at 15:31
/logout doesn't seem to work any more. Upon clicking the "log out" button, I simply get redirected back to / and I remain logged in. – Shawn Chin Jan 6 '12 at 13:48
