As recently as April 22nd 2018, I could grant users with sub-20 reputation write access to a chat room via their mainsite profile link (this is a diamond moderation feature):
In the above screenshot, I've entered a profile URL of the form
https://rpg.stackexchange.com/users/#####/username into that text field. In April 2018, doing this then hitting that button created a chat profile for that user and granted them write access.
Currently that process doesn't do anything. Pasting in their profile URL is broken. Hitting the button simply refreshes the page and nothing else changes. Nobody gets added to the write access list. No errors show up at any point on the page or in the browser console.
This applies even if I've superpinged the user first, which would create a chat account for them. (I have to manually track down the chat user to invite them in.)
- This has worked for me several times over the past year, and was confirmed working as recently as April 22nd 2018.
- This was not working on May 10th 2018, and still doesn't work, meaning it broke sometime between these dates.
