Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

http://chat.stackexchange.com/?tab=site&host=chat.gaming.stackexchange.com doesn't work as expected. I thought it would show me the chatrooms related to Gaming SE, but I only saw the Web Apps SE room. Another user saw the XMPP chatroom and nothing else.

http://chat.stackexchange.com/?tab=site&host=gaming.stackexchange.com, where host does not include chat., works correctly.

This wouldn't be too big of a deal except that that first URL was automatically generated when I entered http://chat.gaming.stackexchange.com/ into my browser by hand.

Shoot. The plot to get more people into the WA chat room has been discovered! – Rebecca Chernoff Dec 5 '10 at 0:42

The &host=chat.gaming.stackexchange.com is an error, that I shall address currently. In the absence of a recognised host, it has then defaulted to webapps, which is the primary site associated with your account.

In my defence, nowhere (AFAIK) officially links to chat.gaming.stackexchange.com ;p

But I'll look into it.
