To answer your question, this forum is designed to ensure that users can get support and help from one another and our team, so there’s no chat (except for TL3s and TL4s) to keep the rest of the posts focused and easy to navigate.
Replit Ask is where you can, as the name suggests, ask about Replit. It’s basically the way to contact people/staff other than the support email. It’s also the place to ask for Code Help, request features, report bugs, or talk generally about coding. There are also other Categories and to get started, I recommend you read the Guidelines/FAQ (IDK what to call it, so I’ll just call it “rules”) https://ask.replit.com/faq
You can ask questions, or help others with questions.
