Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

While not on the official Stack Exchange network, BioStar has a good community of people asking and answering bioinformatics questions. I see that others have asked PyMol questions there. At one point, there was a discussion about rolling BioStar into the Bioinformatics Area51 proposal to bring it into Stack Exchange.
