What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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.
