How about for discussiony questions that come up on the main sites there could be a 'Migrate to Chat' close reason, and a room there to receive them? Kind of like stackoverflowoverflow was, but triggered though a close-migration process.

The stub would just have to point to the room, since it's probably not easy to link to a specific place in chat.

We could call the room, the Question Graveyard.

This might help get rid of the Discussion pressure that new users keep bringing to bear.


I would not like seeing questions being migrated to chat but if a question would be closed due to it's chatty nature, that suggesting the chat interface might not be a bad idea.

  • It seems like if they're in their own room, then everyone who doesn't care about them can just avoid that room, as I plan on avoiding the obscenities-r-us rooms. – Lance Roberts Jul 14 '10 at 16:57

I don't think this is the right idea -- just because you ask a bad question doesn't mean you want a real-time discussion of the bad question, either.

    I wasn't thinking so much about crappy questions, mostly about subjectivy/discussion ones. – Lance Roberts Jul 17 '10 at 7:42
