For some reason, chat seems to think I don't have the 20 rep required to chat. Not sure how it happened, but I was talking just fine prior to whatever it is that happened.

enter image description here

I'm using the latest version of Firefox, if that has anything to do with it. Closing Firefox and re-opening didn't help.

I don't think I got banned or anything; I still have my rep. Did I get flagged or something?

  • Checking your chat profile, it seems like the system thinks you have zero reputation. Try re-associating with another site temporarily? Sep 5, 2012 at 14:15
  • Changed it to SO, and I get a reputation number now, but I still can't talk.

Looks like some account associations got messed up. This wasn't limited to just me.

Chat claims my reputation is much lower than it really is

Anyways, everything seems to be working fine again.
