What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Clumsy as it may be...

As we are doing the FAQ stuff on stackoverflow.com, and I wish to make friends with you guys. But the user profile does not provide a fixed piece of information about user IM and screen names, like Google Talk, MSN, Facebook or Twitter. How can I make friends with users of this website?

You should probably first participate for a little longer and read a bit more. You then would have known that these kind of questions belong on meta.stackoverflow.com. –  Konerak Feb 26 '11 at 14:30

This is not a social website. If a user's profile doesn't include any contact information, they don't want to be contacted. –  Blorgbeard Feb 26 '11 at 14:31
    
The Tavern chat room is fairly informal, and not a bad place to better get to know some of the more active members here. –  oKtosiTe Feb 26 '11 at 18:10

Join us in chat!

I can highly recommend the MSO Tavern!

But there's StackOverflow chat, ServerFault Chat, SuperUser Chat, and in fact Chat for every stack exchange site!

The users who want to be social will be found in chat. We're a bit crazy, but we don't bite (too hard ;-)

@Michael Chat is a veritable bastion of sanity. A bastion. –  Pëkka Feb 26 '11 at 17:21
