Right now I have one (1) reputation and I need 20 to be in a chat. How do I test the chat API? Do I need to get more upvotes to chat or is there a "sandbox" chat that does not need rep?

I know that the chat API is not formal and official and that is why I need to test it.

If there isn't a chat sandbox that doesn't require 20 rep, I will accept an answer saying so.


The FAQ says it's always 20. Ask or answer a question or do some needed edits to earn rep.

The SE Sandbox, and the SO Sandbox.

Many SE/SO Chat Libraries for our chat rooms are available at StackApps.
