• Try entering chat by clicking on the chat link at the top of the page, and see if you can get onto chat. – robjohn Oct 30 '13 at 4:34
• I agree with @DanielRust: the website chat.stackexchange.com is a "separate entity" (by SE reckoning) from math.stackexchange.com. It is possible to be logged into MSE and not into chat (you may notice this also if you have associated accounts on other SE sites which you don't use as frequently). – Willie Wong Oct 30 '13 at 9:18
