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

I have 24 reputation points, but SO chat is still giving me the message "you must have 20 reputation...." Why can't I join the chat?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Your reputation is synced to the chat site hourly, so Chat.SO currently thinks you only have 19 reputation. You can force a refresh by logging out of chat (http://chat.stackoverflow.com/logout) and then logging back in.
