There appears to be some problem with people who are not members at math.SE conencting to at least one chatroom (the recently created "Homotopy Theory" chat room). That is, people with MO profiles are being asked to "log in" when they click on that link. Is this what should be happening? Will this change any time soon?

Thanks! -Jon

    $\begingroup$ It's not about MSE profile, it's a global SE profile. I think they are working on that... $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ We're working on it, it is a network thing that I hope we can have resolved quite soon, but I don't have a definite ETA (yet) - I will update various questions here when I do. Please 'pardon the dust' for just a bit longer - sorry for the confusion. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ In the meantime, ping me if anyone needs a chat profile, I was already able to create on for an MO mod a while ago. $\endgroup$ Jun 28, 2013 at 16:48
  • $\begingroup$ @Manishearth thanks! I think mathoverflow.net/users/16682/jim-stasheff was trying to join the chat room. $\endgroup$ Jun 28, 2013 at 17:57
  • $\begingroup$ @JonBeardsley Ah, he has a chat profile but no chat rep. I can give him explicit access to a room, which room do you need? $\endgroup$ Jun 28, 2013 at 17:59
  • $\begingroup$ he just wanted access to the homotopy theory chat. $\endgroup$ Jun 28, 2013 at 18:02
  • $\begingroup$ thanks so much for your help. I'm not minding the "dust" just wanted to see if I could help Jim out $\endgroup$ Jun 28, 2013 at 18:03
  • $\begingroup$ @JonBeardsley Done, he should be able to talk there now $\endgroup$ Jun 28, 2013 at 18:10
  • $\begingroup$ Note that everyone still has to log in for chat $\endgroup$ Jun 28, 2013 at 18:11
  • $\begingroup$ Jon, sent you email $\endgroup$
