Today OGroteKoning sent me a message suggesting we could add a (for lack of a better term at the moment) "Post Stuff and Chat" Forum here. We tried this long ago and it didn't seem that active, but perhaps it's worth a second try again?
Here is what he said in part:
If anyone is interested in the idea I have 2 main questions:
1) What should we call this section if we added such a thing so others will recognize and use it?
2) Where should it be located on our main Forum page? (top, middle, bottom forum etc)
I will +Rep all ideas and suggestions from those who reply below.
