I tried to access the Teacher's Lounge (Stack Exchange Moderator Chat), but it says I must request access. Another moderator on Stack Overflow has also had the same thing happen to him (late yesterday). Is this a bug or has something changed?
This issue has been resolved for me, though I'm not sure exactly how it was resolved. Here's why:
- I clicked 'request access'
- I then noticed my'parent site' had changed (not by me) from Stack Overflow to Area 51.
- I changed it back, and tried accessing the Teacher's lounge again. No dice.
- I waited a few minutes, did a hard refresh of the page, and then saw the Teacher's Lounge Pop up for me.
Was this fixed because someone gave me access to the TL? Or did the change from Area 51 -> Stack Overflow take a few minutes to work?
This has happened to other Moderators: Is this a bug in the site internals? Or a one time change due to x?
