I've stumbled across a comment under a question today that made me think. It mentioned meeting on discord to escape the "question-answer" format, that is unfit for ... well, a certain range of topics; from critique request to harmless banter.
So I'm wondering if is there a meeting place that the community here is using somewhat consistently when such needs arise. If there isn't, maybe it would be a good idea to start one (in a writing-group fashion).
Keep in mind that I'm widely ignorant about the in-site chat. I know it exists, but for me it's the place where "all comments and discussions go to die" (joking, of course).
