I have recently merged accounts.

However, it looks like the chats weren't been influenced by the merge, which makes me underprivileged to participate in chat. The screenshots of the problem are as follows:

The chats homepage still shows the new account which I used after my past account was locked:

So, it looks like there was a minor glitch with the merge, where chat didn't get influenced.


[Update]: It has been two weeks and the problem persists. Looks like it isn't a caching problem.

In fact, this has been recognised and confirmed in the SFF chat too. (by @Randal'thor)

    Caching? Changing your user name or avatar on one of the main sites takes some time to propagate to chat. Perhaps the same applies after a merge? – DavidPostill May 20 '16 at 7:58

    And if you click that [change] link? because I don't have that in my chat profile? – rene May 26 '16 at 11:34

    @David no caching, it's a known issue and there's already a feature request asking to support such thing: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/159938/…. – Shadow Wizard May 26 '16 at 11:34
  • @rene Tried it. It doesn't work, as that chat acc. is still tied to the new one I created after my old acc was locked. So, it shows only the Startups SE in the drop-down! – Dawny33 May 26 '16 at 11:36

    Well, it was worth a try ... let's wait for a dev ... – rene May 26 '16 at 11:37

I have mailed the SO team about the problem, and they have deleted the chat account of the new account.

And thus, my sweet chat is back. Here is their response on mail:
