On our main site, UX.SE, to get the Talkative and Outspoken badges, Badges just points to http://chat.stackexchange.com/.

Does that mean you can earn the badges by posting to any chat room on the SE chat network or does it need to be http://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/389/ux-chat, our specific chat room?

If the latter, I'd like to report a bug, and have that chat link replaced with the proper one.

    It's counter-intuitive to get badges for UX.stackexchange when you're talking about beer or sci-fi in a completely different forum. That being said, bug or not, I would recommend that the badges apply only to comments in the ux.se chatroom.

  • @Mayo - I agree. That's why I put the bug tag on there just in case. Jan 15, 2015 at 17:17
  • That was a good catch. I think the chat section would be a good resource if it was used more.

  • Maybe it's just a carry over from SE and all sites inherit it? In which case, maybe it does work for all rooms? Who knows? That's why I asked. Jan 15, 2015 at 22:07
