When creating a new chat room, it's possible to not associate it with a specific site, if you choose "The Stack Exchange Network" from the site list (it appears twice for some reason, but that's a separate issue):

However, when editing a room, the option doesn't appear on the host list:

Neither does (default), the host unassociated rooms typically have. As far as I can tell, there's no way to dissociate an existing room from a site; it has to be created with no site and left that way

  • Will investigate. Is there a specific room here? we can edit it directly ;p – Marc Gravell Aug 12 '11 at 20:02
  • @Marc No, I just happened to notice it – Michael Mrozek Aug 12 '11 at 20:23

OK; all addressed:

  • the duplicate now isn't duplicated duplicated
  • the network-wide option is now available (when appropriate - i.e. chat.SE)
