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

Following scenario:

  1. user registers, has 1 point
  2. user visits chat, notes he cannot post because of only 1 point and needs 20
  3. user goes back to SO, answers a question. gets enough points to chat
  4. user goes back to chat, but his profile still shows 1 point

Now my questions:

  • How long does it take for the profile on chat to update?
  • Is there a way to force updating?

Update: Logging in and out did not help.

Chat profiles sync once an hour.

A moderator can trigger a refresh, but generally, just wait a bit.
