I have many topics I wish to discuss with other game programmers. The problem is that these topics are completely opinion-based, and not question-answer based, and therefore not apt for this site, such as every question on the top voted questions list that has been closed as "non-constructive".
However, I find it a bit wasteful to go somewhere else to do this, because I actually want to discuss this stuff with the people in this site (whose community is the best I've seen). I don't want to join a second community in ye olde forums where the signal to noise ratio is worse than even SO.
I know there's supposed to be a chat option, but honestly, chat is a third class citizen in SE, and is heavily unused, not to mention that conversations will fade into the ether as time passes.
It would be really nice to have a subsite (similar to meta) where discussion based topics are welcome and encouraged. There's so much stuff I'd like to ask the rest of the people in this site, that I simply can't because there's no supported way to do so...
Where should I take these topics, so I can discuss them with the very same users who lurk this site?
