I earned the cred, but for some reason when I enter the chat rooms, I receive a ribbon message indicating that I'm not allowed to participate. I'm thinking my English Language & Usage account is not properly linked with my main Stack Exchange account.

Any suggestions?

It appears that your ELU account is indeed not properly associated with your other ones. (See e.g. your accounts tab on SO.) Try clearing all associations and re-associating again. (Note that auto-association only works if you use the same OpenID on all sites. Otherwise, use the "add openid" link in your user profile.)

  • After logging out, destroying my credentials, and deleting my cookies, the issue seems to be resolved. Thank you.
