In case it's not clear, I'd *like* a chat-style community, but I'd prefer it to be a little more "social".

+1 for a private social chat. Or a book club, or something. :)
We already have enough forums for technical discussions... I count at least six(!) that I personally used for core dev work. Another would likely do more harm than good.
