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... $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jun 28 '13 at 15:16

    $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – Tim Post Jun 28 '13 at 16:13

    $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Jun 28 '13 at 16:48
  • $\begingroup$ @Manishearth thanks! I think mathoverflow.net/users/16682/jim-stasheff was trying to join the chat room. $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Beardsley Jun 28 '13 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? $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Jun 28 '13 at 17:59
  • $\begingroup$ he just wanted access to the homotopy theory chat. $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Beardsley Jun 28 '13 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 $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Beardsley Jun 28 '13 at 18:03
  • $\begingroup$ @JonBeardsley Done, he should be able to talk there now $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Jun 28 '13 at 18:10
  • $\begingroup$ Note that everyone still has to log in for chat $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Jun 28 '13 at 18:11
  • $\begingroup$ Jon, sent you email $\endgroup$ – Will Jagy Jun 28 '13 at 19:40
