I can't understand what the issue is with leaving particular chat room. When I leave the room by clicking the "leave" link then after some time I am automatically joined in that particular chat room.

Can anyone please tell me if this is a site issue or what? Why does this happen? Why am I not getting to leave that chat room?

For example I am currently joining two rooms and from one room I leave the other room (see the image below):

After 2 or 3 minutes it comes up again and when I see the last chat message it means I joined again. Some of my Stack Overflow friends ask me "why you are coming in and leaving continuously?"

  • Can you clarify the "joined automatically" part please? How do you know you've re-joined the room?

  • Doesn't the "normal" way to leave the room work either? I.e. switching over to the room (by clicking the room name) and clicking "leave" there in the top right?

  • Is it possible that you have the chat open somewhere else, e.g. in another browser, on your phone, or something like that?

  • This issue is still there. Please solve it if possible. Jan 23, 2014 at 12:25
  • It was an absolute blast in the Android era transcript as I continuously flew over the sidebar... Apparently this bug still exists and I cannot leave that chatroom no matter what. Jul 20, 2017 at 13:54
  • I even tried to log out (all websites; all devices) and the issue still persists. 4 years after discovery. Strangely enough it will settle down after a while and I can actually leave the room. Sep 28, 2017 at 22:06
  • This seems to be an issue related to some proxy stuff, I guess. This only happens when I am working. During college weeks everything is fine, and a few days after I start working, I am caught in the rooms. Then when I am away from work for a few weeks again, I am thrown out of all rooms and everything works as expected. So I would assume there is something here in the network that keeps the connection opened. Any chance you can close it from your side in such a case? Jun 28, 2019 at 7:40
