Sometimes I just want to talk to like minded people, not ask any specific questions per se - just connect. I have often thought that it would be nice if one could chat with IQ members keeping our anonymous identities intact.
Would other members like somthing like that and more importantly Simon can you do something like that at this site?

...and also this comment is relevant https://groups.google.com/d/topic/inward-quest-discussions/7FbdXTf0JMk/discussion in that we don't have any control over the features in the current website software and it isn't being developed any further. Considering the changes that have happened to StackExchange, we are "lucky" Inward Quest is still here

Is there a risk that we could loose the site :O?

When StackExchange switched over from being privately run (like Inward Quest) to being community-operated only, all the less successful sites were gradually shut down, and the others were given a year. That deadline passed a few months ago and we are still here. There was also an assurance at the switchover time that "successful" sites (no criteria given) would not be shut down. IQ's popularity has been increasing steadily for months and we've recently started a major SEO campaign to push it further. I've tried contacting the owners but they have not responded. So we'll have to wait and see.

The StackExchange 2.0 platform supports chat, and a number of other enhancements. InwardQuest runs on StackExchange 1.0. Unfortunately, I don't think InwardQuest would be welcome on StackExchange 2.0; the way new sites are proposed and vetted has changed dramatically, and I don't think InwardQuest would survive the new vetting process.
