I took a survey the other day regarding SE and they asked for feedback on what I'd like to see happen in the future with SE's site and it got me to thinking about other things I love to see regarding interactivity here...

When I see someone post something that makes me think, "Hey I need to know more" Or "I need to speak just to that person", wouldn't it be nice to be able to send that person some sort of message to a mailbox/message center?


Sometimes it's nice to have a bit of time to think about a response, or to get peoples feedback as it relates to that dinner you're going to have in 3 weeks.... But what about that roast that is looking funky now, for tonight's dinner?! Wouldn't some sort of chat dialogue area be nice?

I'm not a fan of IM's so much, but having info faster or more timely may make for broader appeal to SE as opposed to the old bulletin board postings...

@AK, is this something that has been discussed?

What does everyone else think?!
