will being able to access chatrooms always be linked to your meta account or will it be transfered to the respective sites account once chat is out of beta?(i.e. if I have 20+ rep in gamedev or so but only 1 here would that in the future allow me to chat on their specific chat pages)

    Dunno, but now you have 20 over here anyway :)

The reputation requirements for chat are always relative to the parent site.

This is very similar to the way the per-site metas work as well, where you must have 5 rep on the parent site to ask or answer a per-site meta.


  • That doesn't seem to be the way it worked at the time of this question since i had ~28 rep with the gamedev site but when I went to the chat for it it said I needed 20 rep to be able to send any messages there. edit - also the blog post you mentioned says nothing about chat specifically.
