I happen to be hanging around when an avid user from Stack Overflow, viyancs, visited our site to post a question about a problem he was facing. His question was a little vague, and it was only about 15 minutes old, so I posted the following comment:
Hi viyancs, I think first you need to identify the problem. Do you know why deadlines are being missed? Could you perhaps  and tell us more about your team, like how many people, the project, how late it is, and what you might have tried before? Thanks! :)
Moments later, I noticed he edited the post and added more details. The edit message told me that the post had been edited "3 minutes ago", so I dropped another comment on the question:
Feel free to join our chat room on this topic.
The Chat Begins:
A moment later, viyancs joined me, and we discussed the problem he was facing, which is one that I've been through personally as a former developer who became a PM.
We used our conversation in chat to edit his question and add more details to it, and I was also able to ask him some questions of my own and use that information to give him some advice based on my own personal experiences.
At the end of our conversation, I left the following comment on the question:
Here is a chat transcript between jmort253 and viyancs, which discusses this project management challenge. – jmort253♦
This was a cool, fun experiment that combined our real time chat room with writing questions on Project Management Stack Exchange, and I suggest that you try it as well to see if there are other hidden insights. Judge the results for yourself right here:
So, how can we improve on this concept and use chat as a tool to refine questions and answers?
